Kendall uses her son to tell Zach that she is upset with him because he didn't grant her wish and send Bianca away. Zach plays the game and responds that helping someone and interfering in their life are two different things. Kendall assumes the worst, saying that ZoŽ is not what Bianca needs right now. They go back and forth a little longer in the same manner through breakfast, and all the while Zach continues to try to get Kendall to talk directly to him. He finally gives up, hands over the boy and goes into the bedroom. Kendall quietly tells her son that Zach wouldn't break her right before she hears Zach call out in distress. To her amusement, she finds that her husband is scared of spiders. She pokes fun at him for it, and he admits that at the very least, it got her to talk to him. He then tells her that she needs to let Bianca and ZoŽ work things out, and have some faith. Kendall admits that while she does believe in Bianca, she has trouble trusting ZoŽ. Zach then relates what happened with ZoŽ at Ethan's grave Ė that she saw through all of his pain and anger and understood him, and helped. They are then interrupted by a phone call, and when he answers it, he hears some unsettling news and tells the person on the other end to put a stop to what is happening. He ends the call, and throws on his jacket in preparation to leave, much to Kendall's alarm. He stops long enough to tell her that his father might actually get away with murder.
Babe finds ZoŽ sitting alone in the Fusion break room and after she gives congratulations on her new sister, ZoŽ asks Babe to help her stand strong behind her decision that her that for her own good, she ended things with Bianca. She notes that from day one, all she is done is ask Bianca for love, support, understanding. She doesn't think that a relationship right now would be fair while she still has issues surrounding her transition. Babe tells her that she is not giving Bianca enough credit as she is a lot stronger that ZoŽ might think, and that she wouldn't hang around if she didn't want to. ZoŽ tells her that there is no reason to go into a relationship when she knows that things could go wrong. Babe presents the flip side, saying that uncertainty is part of the fun. ZoŽ then says that Bianca already gives so much to everyone else, and she shouldn't be asked to give more but Babe goes to bat for her once-again best friend and says that Bianca wants a chance, and ZoŽ should take the opportunity and give back. ZoŽ then notes that she might not be able to give back as much as she receives, and fears that the possibility of never having a woman's body might cheat Bianca out of the happiness she truly deserves. Babe asks if she is really considering not fully transitioning, and ZoŽ tells her that there are so many factors that she hadn't considered before reading books and talking to doctors and going to support group. She says that it will take time before she finds out what variation will work best for her. She then informs Babe that in talking to her manager, she decided that she needs to move to London to work on her next album. Unexpectedly, Babe responds by telling her not to be a coward. ZoŽ tries to convince her that she is being practical but Babe calls her bluff and ZoŽ finally admits that she has never been so scared in her life. Babe lets it go then, saying that she needs to go visit her mother, and leaves ZoŽ to decide on her own. Once alone, ZoŽ considers all that was said for a few brief moments before grabbing her purse and heading for the exit.
Bianca goes to the apartment that her brother shares with ZoŽ and is dismayed to find that the object of her affection had already left for work. Josh admits that he heard what happened the night before, and Bianca begs him to help her convince ZoŽ not to shut the door on possibility completely. Josh informs her that it may be too late, as ZoŽ has plans to leave town. Bianca is disbelieving, but Josh tells her that ZoŽ is apparently going to do another album and, after talking to her manager this morning, decided that she needs to move to London Ė soon. Bianca muses aloud about the possibility that she may have pushed ZoŽ into leaving, and Josh suggests that perhaps that wouldn't be a bad thing. Bianca thinks that both he and Kendall have it in for ZoŽ because she is transgendered, but Josh tells her that fact isn't an issue for him. He reminds her that she told him to give Babe space when she had a lot going on and suggests that she might want to follow her own advice. He also says that ZoŽ will be going through enough with therapy, possible reactions to the medication and body image issues that it might be too much to handle that and a life-changing relationship. Bianca asks if he thinks that she should just forget about ZoŽ because it would be too hard, and Josh notes that might be the best course of action. Bianca insists that she isn't asking for the world Ė just a chance, and an offer of support during one of the hardest times of ZoŽ's life. Josh worries that she will get hurt in the process and says that just because she can identify with what ZoŽ is going through doesn't mean that they need to be together. Bianca says that there is something between her and ZoŽ, and they will never be satisfied not knowing what it is. Josh continues to compare Bianca's "could be" to his "what happened with Babe", but Bianca doesn't buy that the two situations are similar. She insists that if Josh found another way to hook Babe, he would do it in a heartbeat Ė but he tells her that he finally got the message and has backed off from Babe for good. He tells his little sister that he finally understands that both people have to want the relationship for things to work. Bianca tells him that she and ZoŽ bring light into each other's lives and she can't just let that light go out without fighting for it.
Later, ZoŽ returns home and finds Bianca sitting on the couch, waiting. Bianca tells her that she had talked to Josh and he had advised her to let ZoŽ go. ZoŽ counters by saying that she talked to Babe, who encouraged her to not let Bianca go. With a hint of a smile on her face, Bianca asks what they should do.
Lily and Sean show up at a convention at the Valley Inn and, after checking in and a few wisecracks from Sean, Lily asks him if he can help her ascertain if someone is lying. She fills him in on what happened with Aidan, but Sean thinks that she would have better luck by asking people closer to him. Lily points out that since Sean is good at lying, he would know better than her. Sean asks why Aidan would do such a thing, and Lily tells him that he probably did it for the same reason that Jonathan did Ė to protect her. The problem, she notes, is that the only thing lying ends up doing is hurting her.
Jack arrives at the Valley Inn with Barbara in tow, insisting that she can no longer live under his roof because of the trauma she inflicts on Lily. Barbara tries to worm her way out of it but Jack refuses to lose his daughter. He takes her to the concierge so that she can be checked in as his guest and promptly leaves.
Aidan makes a call to find out if Ava boarded the flight to Hollywood, as planned. Simultaneously, Di berates Jonathan for being the benefactor that provided the ticket. Unapologetic, Jonathan tells her that he did so to protect Lily, prompting Di to ask who will protect Ava, and what will happen to her when the money runs out. She tries to convince him that even though Ava has done bad things, the answer could be family Ė someone to hang on to that can ground her. Jonathan tells her that family is not always a good thing, and uses himself as an example. Di does, and says that she doesn't think that Ava will go around blowing up people in caves. She starts to storm out but Aidan enters the room just then and informs them that Ava never got on the plane. Jonathan is outraged, but Di tells him that he got what he deserved. The two men fear that she remained in Pine Valley and is closer to Lily than ever.
Jack goes to Wildwind and finds out about his daughter's half-sister. In almost the same breath, he finds out about Ava's history, the fact that Jonathan paid her to leave town, and that they no longer know where she is. He asks Aidan what his take on Ava is, and Aidan sums her up by saying that she is a challenge. Jack confirms that Lily doesn't know that she and Ava are related or that she has been in town, and Aidan assures him that Lily only knows that they are looking for her. He then asks Jack if he wants Ava to be tracked down again, and if he wants the two young women to meet. Jack recounts that he used to make all of Lily's decisions for her, and eventually, he made the wrong one when he cut Jonathan out of her life. He notes his regret, and thinks that his wrong move, in addition to the attack that she survived, caused something to be lost in her. He thinks that what she might need is a human connection not unlike what she had with Jonathan. Di offers that perhaps Ava could be that connection.
In a room at the Valley Inn, Ava emerges from the shower and admires her makeup job that deftly hides her facial bruise. Moments later, a knock at the door marks the arrival of room service. She holds the door open so that the employee can pull the cart in, allowing just enough time for Erica, who was merely passing by in the hall, to spot her and mistake her for Lily. She asks a series of questions to find out what is going on, and Ava mutely agrees with everything in an attempt to save herself. The employee asks for a signature from "Mrs. Lavery", setting off alarm bells for Erica. When he leaves, Erica notes aloud that she knows what is going on. She announces that she thinks Barbara is at the root of all of Lily's problems and that she is using her married name so that no one can find her. She tells "Lily" not to worry because she will take care of everything, and then exits the room with a small smile. On her way downstairs, she runs into Barbara in the hall, who tries to convince her that it was her idea to move out of Jack's house. Erica smiles smugly, not believing a word, and fairly skips the rest of the way to the main floor.
Back at her room, Ava opens the door once more and finds the concierge with the laptop she requested. He asks after her credit card, noting that he bent the rules enough allowing her to check in while she searched for it in her luggage. She tells him that she still hasn't found it, but that she had called the company and will bring it down as soon as she finds it or hears back from them. Trusting her, he takes his leave. She takes the laptop over to the desk and does an internet search for Erica. She finds pictures of her wedding on The Exposer website and discovers that her half-sister is also Erica's stepdaughter.
Lily confirms with Sean that he can go talk to Aidan after the conference moments before Erica approaches their table and announces that she just saw Lily upstairs in her room. Confused, Lily asks for an explanation, but Erica avoids doing that by quickly announcing that Barbara checked into the hotel, meaning that Lily can move back home Ė and then leaving. Barbara enters the room shortly thereafter and asks for a moment alone with her son. Sean asks Lily not to leave but she tells him that she needs to be alone to solve the bigger mystery. She leaves, and Barbara and Sean take a seat. Sean really doesn't want anything to do with her but Barbara insists that she wants her son back. Sean calls her on her act, saying that she knows he has never really been a son to him, and is in fact only using him to get at Jack. Barbara attempts to be outraged but Sean lays it out for her: to Travis, he was a son, and loved as such; to Barbara Ė he was the answer to his older sister's bone marrow problem. He tells her to stop playing the family card because he is done dealing with it Ė and her.
In the foyer, Lily writes down all of the peculiar instances that came out of her encounter with Erica, and comes up with one question: who could Erica have mistaken her for upstairs in the hotel? She starts to write out a plan to find the person that Erica saw, and is interrupted by the concierge, who asks if she found her credit card yet. Lily quickly realizes that the man must also be mistaking her for her look alike, and gives him a credit card. She asks if she could get an extra key and if the room number would be printed, and he tells her the room information for #416 will be on the slip for her records.
Di and Jonathan continue to verbally spar over whether Lily meeting Ava would be a good thing, and Jack stops them by asking to speak with Aidan alone. He then advises the investigator to find Ava and bring her to see him so that he can ask her some questions. They are cut off by a knock at the door. Aidan attends to it, and ends up letting Erica in. She tells Jack that his office told her where he was and then asks why he didn't tell her that Lily was staying at the Valley Inn. He tells her that he saw Lily at the house this morning, and that she must be mistaken about Lily moving there. He then gets a call and when he ends it, he says that Derek's call was about Alex Cambias Sr.
Ava closes the laptop just before there is a knock at the door. Without thinking, she flings it open and comes face to face with her half-sister.
