Molly told Vicky's mother, Donna, about seeing Vicky's ghost at the Halloween party. Donna pressed Molly for the exact details of the sighting and was astounded when she realized that the dress Molly described Vicky to be wearing was, in fact, one that Donna had given her and had been her favorite. Overwhelmed and excited, Donna left with a promise to call in two days if she didn't hear from Molly sooner. Soon Molly fell asleep and dreamed of falling into a great body of water and hearing Vicky's voice calling out to her.
Vicky's twin sister, Marley, paid Jake a visit and was skeptical upon hearing of Molly's sighting of Vicky's ghost. Marley suggested that perhaps Molly was having visions as a result of being in a coma and having major head trauma. She suggested that Molly be examined by a neurologist. Jake agreed that it was a possible explanation and called Ben Harris, Molly's doctor.
Julia was distraught when Barbara told her that Craig Montgomery was the one who rid them of the lawyer, Mr. Stiles, at the Halloween party. Barbara agreed to talk to Craig on Julia's behalf about the envelope that Stiles was preparing to give to Jack. Julia finally took a pregnancy test and was delighted to find her suspicions were confirmed--she was definitely pregnant.
Craig and Carly paid a visit to Isaac at Java Underground. Craig insisted that the earrings would be safer in the club's safe. Isaac protested, but Craig reminded him that it wasn't a request but an order. When Craig excused himself to take a phone call, Carly proposed to Isaac that they work together to get rid of Craig once and for all. Craig returned before they concluded their conversation. When she informed Craig that she was meeting Jack later in the evening, he thought it was a good idea. That way she could convince Jack that she would help him and in the meantime, distract Jack from harassing Craig. He even wished her good luck.
Jack arrived at the boathouse, which bought back vivid memories of he and Carly making passionate love there. Just as he decided to leave, Carly arrived.
