Storyline

Abby suggests Greg let the lawyers handle all future contact with the MacKenzies. Mack tells Karen about Greg's request. Paige eavesdrops on the conversation. Later, she asks Greg why he would want a woman like Abby to raise his daughter. Jill shops for a hospital bed. Julie is injured while riding Gary's horse. Karen slaps Abby for saying that a dead Laura has no say in who should raise Meg. Gary threatens Jill. An antsy Gary sleeps outside of Val's house fearing Jill will hurt her or the twins. Olivia tells Abby she will not let her do to Meg what she's done to her. Mack and Karen hire a lawyer. Olivia takes Meg for a walk and doesn't return for hours. Pat learns the saddle Julie was riding on was cut deliberately. She then spies Jill on the ranch, but she disappears from sight. Ted and Abby leak a sob story about Greg and Meg to the press.
