Her voice falters as she reads the news about the accident being caused after an argument with Molly's daughter. Katie barely makes it through the rest of the report, and makes a heartfelt wish to Molly for her recovery. After she goes off air, Holden comes to the desk to see if Katie is all right. Katie tells him that "This wasn't supposed to happen!"
Holden hugs her supportively as Henry shakes his head. Katie immediately tries to recoup from her statement, and Holden doesn't seem to catch it.

Jack throws a lot of information about "Phillips" to Hal, about his shady dealings, his extortion charge, and his stabbing of Isaac, but Hal refuses to believe that Carly left town under duress. Jack is surprised that if that is the case, then why hasn't anyone heard from her? And why would she not leave word about her whereabouts to her own cousin, Molly? Just then Barbara enters with a package from Carly.
Jack looks dejected, but demands to know what is in the box. It is an outfit and a teddy bear for Parker. There is also a note to Barbara and Hal attached that tells them that she has been very busy, but she misses her little boy, and soon would like to arrange for Parker to visit her in France. Nothing is mentioned in the note about Jack. Jack refuses to believe that Carly is doing all this freely, and wants to scan the note and the contents of the package to see if Carly left any clues to where she is being held. Hal and Barbara try to knock some sense into him, but Jack tells them that he is not giving up on Carly.
Denise apologizes to the social worker about the craziness she walked in on, and tells her that Hope is teething which is why she is so cranky. Ben asks the social worker if she could come back a little later after they have had a chance to clean things up a bit, but Denise thinks that is a big mistake. The social worker admits that she does have another family to visit, and she will make this exception just once. After she leaves, Denise lays into Ben about shooing out the social worker. She thinks that the lady will believe that Denise has something to hide. Ben tries to calm her down, telling her that social workers are trained professionals, and they know that babies cry and mother's have bad days. Denise believes that it would be better if Ben were gone when the social worker comes back. Ben tries to tell her that not everyone is "out to get her", but Denise still believes that it would be better if she could just handle this situation on her own. Ben disgustingly leaves, and Denise hurriedly tries to clean up the place. The doorbell rings, and Denise is relieved to see Andy standing at the door.

Katie secretly feels horrible about what happened. After Holden leaves, Henry comes in to give Katie his kudos for the broadcast.

After they leave the room, Hal and Barbara discuss the nerve Carly has to cause so much trouble from halfway around the world. Denise explains to Andy the chaos that had just happened, and Andy tries to calm her down. He says all the right things to Denise to make her feel better about the situation, and offers to help her clean up so that she can go change.

As Denise re-emerges from changing, the social worker arrives. Denise calmly apologizes for the confusion, and Andy introduces himself as Hope's father.

Katie goes to Holden and tells him that she has to tell him something. Henry tries to interject, but Katie starts profusely apologizing to Holden. She is about to spill the beans, when one of the production assistants interrupts with Katie's new contract. Holden tells her that he is offering her a three-year contract as the news anchor, complete with a large salary, and many perks. Katie is shocked, and when Holden asks her what she needed to tell him, Katie feigns that she was just upset at herself for faltering during the newscast. Holden begins to praise her for her honesty and loyalty to the station and his family, and tells her that she deserves everything that she is getting. Henry is relieved, and welcomes her to "the big time."

Emma tells Jack that she received some fancy French soaps from Carly, and a thank you message for all that she did to help her out before the ill-conceived wedding. Jack is miffed that everyone got packages from Carly except him, but Emma tells him that there was something for him in her package. She was about to throw it out to spare Jack any pain, but decided that it should be Jack who makes that call. It is a videotape. Emma offers to leave to let Jack view it in private, but Jack asks her to stay. Carly begins by apologizing to Jack for hurting him. She tells him that things are going wonderful for her in Paris, and that her designs are a huge hit. She says that she is happy, because people there genuinely like her, and respect her. It is not like Oakdale where everyone graciously forgave her, but are secretly waiting for her to fall again. She most of all just wants Jack to be happy, and to not wait around for her, because he could never enjoy the life that she wants to live. There is a knock on Carly's door, and she tells Jack that it must be room service. She ends the tape by telling Jack to not forgive her, and let her go, so that he can be happy. Jack is visibly dejected.
Ben and Denise kiss, and Denise tells him that everything turned out a lot better in the end. Ben finds the photos of Denise and Hope that Andy took, and Denise tells him that Andy dropped those off earlier. Ben's face shows disappointment about Andy's involvement, but just tells Denise that he would like copies of the photos for himself. Denise asks him how she could be so lucky, and she and Ben kiss again.
Katie excitedly looks over her new contract, and Henry tells her that she did the right thing by not telling Holden about their involvement in the whole Chris/Molly thing. Holden enters and tells them both that the viewers of the news have been calling all morning, and are voicing their opinions that they want Molly back on the air after she recovers from her injuries. Holden tells Katie not to worry, that her position as anchor is secure. After he leaves, Katie looks dejected, but Henry tells her not to worry. He has taken all the necessary precautions to ensure that Molly will never return to WOAK. Katie tells Henry to leave Molly alone, that they have done enough to hurt her. Henry says that it is better to be safe than to be sorry, but Katie tells him that she will no longer be a part of any more of his schemes. Henry tells her that it is too late for that, she is already up to her eyeballs in it. Holden interrupts their intense conversation, and tells Katie that they need to go over some new copy. Katie tells Holden that her and Henry are done. After they leave, Henry gets on the phone, and tells the person on the other end that he wants plans set in motion immediately. He says that Molly will not look like the innocent martyr in the viewer's eyes when "this" all hits the fan.
Ben and Denise start to get passionate on the couch. Ben half-heartily tries to put on the breaks, but Denise tells him that she "needs" him so much. Meanwhile, in Hope's nursery, she begins fussing. Standing up in her crib, she notices her favorite comfort toy lying on the floor....
Emma apologizes to Jack for Carly, and tells him that he would be better off if he stops trying to find something redeeming in Carly's leaving. She tells him that he is only going to hurt himself worse if he keeps believing that Carly did not leave town on his own free will. She leaves, and Jack smashes the videotape against the wall. He says "Good-bye, Carly."
Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, Phillips enters Carly's room, and admonishes her for not eating anything. He tells her that her packages arrived in Oakdale as planned, and he is sure that everyone was convinced that she is living lavishly in Paris. He tells her not to have any false hopes, that no one will be looking for her, or cares about her anymore. Carly begs Phillips to let her talk to "him", as she is sure that she can convince "him" to let her go. Phillips tells her that is not possible, and leaves, locking her in her room. Carly says aloud "someway, somehow, I will find a way to make this up to you Jack."
