Ashlee (Caitlin Van Zandt) and Coop are disappointed to see a WSPR news report that hints Doris will be the new mayor of Springfield. At the Towers Bill pours Doris champagne and calls her "madam mayor."
Lizzie (Marcy Rylan) interrupts to remind them both that Doris is not mayor yet and blasts Bill for throwing in with Doris in planning to level Main St. Ava arrives and is reunited with a flirtatious Bill. She gets a sneak peek at the plans for Main Street and then runs over to the Cooper camp where she blames Ashlee for her mother's impending victory.
Feeling guilty, Ashlee stops by her mother's party where Doris boasts that she didn't have to cheat to win. However, she also states that she is moving ahead with her plans to destroy the Cooper family.
Ashlee meets secretly with "Einstein" and hires him to alter the results so that Buzz wins the election. She hurries over to the Coopers where they are thrilled by the final announcement that Buzz is the new mayor!
As they talk, Ava (Michelle Ray Smith) snaps a photo of them together. A bloody and drunk Billy ends up in the hospital after crashing his car. Bill rushes to his father after Lizzie breaks the news but when Billy greets him by assuring him it's too early to hope for his inheritance, Bill calls the police to report a drunk driver. Gus brings Olivia the document she wants Bill to sign...
Rafe confronts Olivia (Crystal Chappell) about all the time she's spending with Gus (Ricky Paull Goldin) and says she wants Gus all to herself. Olivia denies it. Later, after he confirms he's done with Harley (Beth Ehlers), Olivia urges Gus to put off his wedding but he refuses.
