Mack begins a class-action lawsuit against Greg on behalf of his former employees, but the case hinges on a document that is missing. Val's latest book "Hostage" is to be turned into a film and the studio team her up with a scriptwriter named Clay McKinney. Meg tries to find out who her biological father is. Kate reappears in Knots Landing with a four-year-old daughter named Molly and tells Gary he is the father. Anne also returns and goes to stay with Greg. Abby tells Greg that she can get him the missing document if he pays her $1 million so she can pay the IRS her back taxes.

Mack is going through a mid-life crisis and moves out of the house which upsets Karen. Meg finds out Greg is her natural father and goes to visit him where he plays her the tape recording her mother Laura made for her before she died.

Val finally tells the police what happened at Clay's house, and they accept his death was accidental. Karen and Mack reconcile, and Karen's son Michael returns home with his fiancée to tell Karen she is going to be a grandmother.
