In "The Things We Do for Love," when Alec (guest star Trai Byers, ALL MY CHILDREN) approaches Max (Josh Zuckerman) about forming a new company with him, Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) intervenes by attempting to persuade Bryce (guest star Amber Stevens) to rehire Max at his company. Naomi convinces Navid (Michael Steger) to take Bryce out for drinks, and after a few cocktails Navid uncovers the truth about Max's termination, which leaves Naomi pondering the fate of her marriage.
Liam (Matt Lanter) receives a blackmail letter about Vanessa's (guest star Arielle Kebbel) accident, and Annie (Shenae Grimes) agrees to lend him the money to help trap his blackmailer. But when Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) tells Ashley (guest star Natalie Morales) that she spotted Vanessa at the beauty salon, Ashley wrongly suspects that Liam was headed for a secret rendezvous with Vanessa. Meanwhile, Silver (Jessica Stroup) is distraught when Teddy (Trevor Donovan) refuses to sign over his parental rights and tries to convince her to let him co-parent the baby.
