|In February, Myrtle and Rae went to what Illinois city to find out more information about Rae's biological parents?|
Elsah. Rae took a short break from looking for Daniel, her husband, and told Myrtle, who she had befriended, that she wanted to look for her biological parents. Rae was adopted at a young age but she had no idea who her bio parents were. When both of them went to Elsah, Illinois, to find information, Myrtle saw a file that had her name on it.

|In March, who was jailed during a custody hearing?|
Erica Kane. Erica interrupted Jake and Liza's custody hearing to determine who should have custody of Colby. She told the judge she had information that would be critical to the case (she knew that Adam, not Jake, was Colby's biological father). The judge told Erica to be quiet until it was her turn and Erica refused to cooperate so the judge held her in contempt. Erica was jailed for about a day and then released since no charges were filed against her.
|In April, who killed Paolo Cosseli?|
Vanessa Cortlandt. Paolo Cosseli came to town and tried to get a business deal with Erica where he would swindle money from her. Erica caught on to his game and said the deal was off. One night, Paolo upset Erica very much that Erica threatened to kill him. She left his hotel room at the Valley Inn. Vanessa was the next person to visit Paolo that evening. The next time we saw Paolo, Leo hovered over his dead body. Leo was arrested for Paolo's murder but the culprit turned out to be Vanessa since she drugged his drink and that caused Paolo to die. Vanessa, eventually, confessed to killing Paolo when David made her think she was dying. Leo was present to hear her confession and he told his mother he wanted nothing to do with her.
|In May, Ryan launched a website company called what?|

Opal hired a psychic and brought him over to Marian's house to see if he could resurrect Stuart's "spirit." It turned out that the spirit he resurrected was that of Cindy Parker Chandler.

Charlotte explained to Alex that she was, once, assigned to kill her twin sister, Anna, but Alex did not go through with it. Alex realized that Charlotte was actually her aunt and not her mother. When Alex and Anna were both born, Charlotte stole Alex from her parents and raised her as her "daughter" so Alex had no idea she had a twin sister named Anna.
