(Whoever was editing today's episode was quite flashback trigger happy. I counted 31 individual flashbacks, which at about a half a minute per flashback, means they took up the majority of the episode.)
Maxie tells Robert to drop his vendetta with Peter and focus on what they have in common. She says Peter has suffered enough. Robert says he only wants what's best for Maxie.
Robert tells Olivia he's leaving the party early and asks her to create a cover so he can take off. Robert heads to Maxie's, breaks in, and snoops around. Meanwhile, Peter calls someone to set up something against Robert, then leaves the party as well.

Michael and Sasha discuss Wiley. Carly joins them and starts in on Nelle's terrible actions. Michael's worried if they dump too much on Nelle, then the judge will see her as a victim.

Chase tells Willow it's time to decide what to do. He says it's her decision and he'll support her if she agrees to marry Michael. Chase says if she chooses not to, then she needs to back off and let Michael deal with it alone.
The piñata is brought out and all the kids pull the strings until the candy, but no snake, falls out.
