Anne falls off a horse and tells Greg she lost their baby. Nick gives Claudia a necklace. Karen's upset that Mack tried to set Mary up. Mack's upset Gary didn't get it on tape. Mary gives her brother Joe some money, but says she's going to see Meg until they give her the rest of the million. Mack's upset because he thought Mary was out of their life.
