Molly goes to the jail to see Rose, whom she still believes is Lily. Rose explains things to her but she doesn't believe that Rose is a con artist. Police officer Shanks comes in with Rose's dinner and Rose asks him to tell Molly who she is. Shanks says that she probably tried to tell Molly that she is Lily, but she is a con artist named Rose D'Angelo. Molly looks at Rose in disbelief. Shanks leaves and Rose tells Molly that she needs her to do something for her. At first, Molly doesn't want to have anything to do with Rose, but when Rose reminds Molly about the tape, Molly starts to listen. Rose tells her that if Molly doesn't go into Holden and Lily's house, Katie will and she will find the tape. Rose gives Molly a key to get in and Molly leaves. After Molly leaves, Jake and Lucinda come to visit Rose. They have been trying to make a connection between Rose and Lily. They tell Rose that they want to ask her some questions. Rose tells them to ask away, but she doesn't know anything. They give her a copy of the woman that is dressed in the late 1800's costume. She tells them that she doesn't know who the woman is and she had found the picture in a trunk with a lot of momentos. She tells them that she thinks the lady is an ancestor, but she doesn't know her name or how they are related. Lucinda and Jake start to leave and Rose tells him about Molly being there and she was on her way to get the tape from the house. Jake gets an unhappy look on his face. He takes out his cell phone to make a call. Katie tells Henry that she needs to get into Holden's house and find the tape. Henry tells her to give it up. He says that Holden will never love her, he is too in love with his wife. Katie still holds onto the idea of her and Holden. She just can't give it up and she leaves to go to Holden's. Molly arrives at Holden and Lily's house and she opens the door with the key that Rose had given her. She goes inside and yells for anyone an! d nobody answers. She goes to the chest that Rose told her to and she finds the tape. She starts toward the door and someone starts to open the door. Molly runs and hides. Emma is there with the kids to get some things and then they will leave again. As Emma is gathering up the toys and stuff for the kids, the doorbell rings and Katie is there. She tells Emma that she was working on something for Holden and she lost her copy on the computer. She asks if she could come in and get the hard copy from Holden's briefcase. Emma is apprehensive, but she lets Katie in and then goes to check on Luke. Katie starts to search the living room for the tape. She goes to the chest where the tape had been and finds an empty case. Emma yells from the other room and asks Katie if she is finished yet? Katie runs to Holden's briefcase and takes out some papers. Emma comes in and apologizes for rushing Katie but she is ready to leave again with the children. Katie says that she understands and she found the papers and is ready to leave also. Molly is watching the whole time. After Katie and Emma close the door, Molly comes out of hiding and heads for the door. She decides that maybe she will take the empty case with her and she goes and retrieves it from the chest. She gets outside and her cell phone rings which scares her at first. She answers the phone and Jake is on the other end. He asks her what she is up to and she says that she is talking to the most handsome man in Oakdale. He says that he thought that they should get together at the Lakeview and compare notes. She asks if that is a code word for something fun? He says that they need to talk about the felon that they both visited today. He says that he wants to ask her one question, if they have so much in common, why all the secrets? Then he adds that he will be waiting and hangs up his cell phone. Katie meets Henry at the Lakeview and tells him that she is screwed. She only found an ! empty tape case. He tells her once again to cut her ties and give up. Jake is waiting across the room for Molly. Molly comes in and throws the tape on the table. She tries to explain that she just can't let Katie win. Jake starts to lecture her and then he agrees with her. Molly starts to write a note and she tells him to cover her. She puts the note in the empty tape case and asks the waiter to bring them their best champagne and deliver this package to the blond at the bar. The waiter takes the package to Katie and says that this just arrived for her. She opens up the package and sees the tape case. She gets excited, thinking that this is the tape she has been looking for. She opens the case and finds only a note. The note says, "You snooze, you lose, loser." She looks across the room at Molly and Jake and they are laughing. Molly yells across the room that she thanks Katie, it has been quite a ride. Katie looks at Henry and says that she is dead. Henry says that they need to get out of there, they don't have to watch them gloat.Rose gets officer Shanks to let her make a call. She calls Lucinda and says that she has been thinking about family, about Luciano. Lucinda tells her that he is none of her business now. Rose says that she knows that Luke is starting first grade tomorrow and she was wondering if Lucinda would write him a note and put in his book bag to make his first day go better. Lucinda tells her to mind her own business and she hangs up the phone. Lucinda says, "Really, I never...."On the island, Lily and Simon are finishing making another raft. They are all excited to set sail in the morning and finally get home. Celia is watching from behind a tree. She realizes that they intend on leaving her behind on the island, alone. She rushes back to Cooley's hut and gets the flares that she found and sets the hut on fire. Back at Lily and Simon's cave, they hear Celia screaming for help. They run to the hut, but it is all burned up and Simon thinks that Celia is in the rubble. Lily holds him back so he doesn't get burned. They start looking for Celia in the jungle. She is nowhere to be found. It hits them that maybe she set the hut on fire to get them to leave the cave so she could steal the raft. The make a made dash to the beach.Celia goes to the cave and finds the raft and all the food. But, there is one more thing that she needs before she leaves the island....the diamond. She starts to tear the cave apart and finally finds the diamond. She gets the raft and food and the diamond down to the beach and takes off. Simon and Lily arrive right after she set sail. It is too late. They can't get her to come back and the ocean is too rough to go after her. Simon starts to have a fit and Lily tries to calm him down. They look back at Celia and she is nowhere to be found. The sea was too rough and she must have gone under. Simon starts to go into the water to save her and Lily stops him. She tells him that he can't save her and she needs him on the island. He realizes it is too late. She says that there wasn't anything he could do. Simon looks at Lily with tears in his eyes and says that Celia is gone. Lily tells him that she is still there, he still has her. She walks over and takes Simon in her arms and hugs him tight.

So, he made Curtis go to the half-way house because they had nurses and social workers on staff that could help him. Ben asks if Curtis thinks that Isaac abandoned him? Isaac says that he thinks so.

She says that one of the things is he was supposed to do was call and set up appointments for physical therapy. He tells her that he just needs a break and he told his father that.

When they get to the physical therapist, Andy is making up all kinds of excuses why he can't be at the physical therapist today. Denise reminds Andy that he needs to work on getting better so he doesn't have to be in the wheel chair any more. Finally, Andy tells Denise that he is afraid of losing her and Hope. Denise says that she told him that she would be with him until he was walking and then they would go off on their merry way, but she and Hope will always be his family. She tries to bring Andy's spirits up by engaging him in a game of basketball. As they are playing, Denise makes a shot and falls into Andy's lap.

Carly persuaded Molly to let her borrow a credit card so that Carly could fly to Las Vegas to stop Jack and Julia's wedding ceremony. Molly tried to talk her stubborn cousin out of making a fool of herself by going to Vegas but was unable to do so.

Jack, Julia, Hal, and Barbara arrived at a very cheesy Las Vegas wedding chapel. The regular reverend was called away, so a "guest reverend", the neighborhood Elvis impersonator, was called in to perform the ceremony. Hal tried to talk Barbara into renewing their wedding vows but Barbara questioned his motives. Julia confided to Barbara her insecurities regarding Jack and Carly's on again-off again relationship. She was apprehensive that perhaps Jack's eagerness to marry her was his way of getting back at Carly for leaving him at the altar. In the midst of the ceremony, Carly burst into the chapel, pleading with Jack to talk to her.

The members of the support group bombarded Andy with questions and comments about his condition, making him extremely uncomfortable. After a harrowing plane ride, Holden and Cooley finally landed on the island. Cooley gave Holden directions to the cave with Lily in it and Holden rushed off to find his wife.

Meanwhile, Lily and Simon shared a dance and a very deep, intimate kiss before Lily came to her senses and slapped Simon to stop him from kissing her. To Lily's dismay, Simon professed that he was madly in love with her. She tried to convince Simon that he would forget her once they got back to civilization, but eventually she confessed that she wanted Simon as much as he wanted her. She informed him, however, that wanting someone and loving someone were two very different things. Simon argued that since they shared the same feelings, they should do something about them. Initially Lily was resistant, but she soon gave in to her feelings and the two of them fell to the ground, kissing deeply. Suddenly, Holden barreled into the cave, crying out Lily's name. In horror and disbelief, he witnessed his wife in a passionate horizontal embrace with Simon.
