When Jessica heard a noise at her place, she grabbed a gun and almost shot Bonnie.
Rosanna denied to Craig and Carly that she had offered Barbara a job and insisted that she had simply asked Barbara to create a few designs to "shadow" Carly.

Craig insisted he couldn't abandon Carly and her dream of being a fashion designer. Later, Barbara offered a thousand-dollar bet to Craig that Carly wouldn't have her designs in time, but Craig wouldn't bite.
Claiming that time was running out for both of them, Molly asked Mike to marry her as soon as possible.

Isaac infuriated Bonnie when he admitted that he'd retrieved Marshall's letter from the garbage and told Ben about it.

Running into Aaron, Emily tried to blame him for Alison's troubles but backed down when he pointed out how many people had been hurt by Alison's mistakes.

He urged her to have some feelings of regret for what she had done but failed to get through to her.

Inviting Craig to meet for dinner, Rosanna guessed he had a meeting with Carly. He lied then rushed to Carly's hospital bed, where he found Jack had just left. She asked for permission to tell Jack about her work for Monte Carlo, but he wouldn't allow it. She convinced Craig to prove his love and set a wedding date with Rosanna.
While Craig was gone, Rosanna met with Barbara, who sensed she and Craig had just argued about Carly. Admitting she wanted to see Carly lose Monte Carlo, Molly liked the idea when Rosanna talked about using Barbara's designs. Surprising her with matching beepers to use when she needed him, Jack kissed Carly.
Emily talked to Alison about how dangerous prison could be if a person didn't do as she was told. Panicking, Alison used some vegetable shortening to slip her home monitor bracelet off her ankle.

Rosanna was caught off guard when Craig asked her to marry him that night. He admitted that he hadn't been concentrating on her due to everything else in his life but promised to make it up to her.

An anxious Barbara reminded Dusty that he needed to work fast to end Paul and Rose's engagement, since they had plans to tie the knot in May. When Molly entered the bar, Dusty quickly took a seat and downplayed his conversation with Barbara. Flirting seductively, Molly invited Dusty to her room, where they made love.
Rose paid Carly a visit and showed off her engagement ring. When Carly admitted that she was suffering from a creative block, Rose reassured her that she'd get past it. Just then, Rosanna called with a reminder that if Carly couldn't create some designs, Rosanna would use Barbara's. Craig stopped by and urged Carly to get to work.

Aaron helped Lucy take her first step, and after Rosanna mentioned her upcoming wedding, Lucy vowed to walk down the aisle.
Emily approached Lucy and Aaron and urged them to say goodbye to Alison before she was sent to "the place." Lucy wanted nothing to do with her, but eventually, Emily convinced them to meet with Alison just to show her they would always be a couple and that Alison had no chance of wooing Aaron. At Hal and Emily's place, Lucy and Aaron wished Alison well, but Lucy advised Alison that they could never be friends again.
Craig was furious when Rosanna confirmed that she had hired Barbara to create some designs for Monte Carlo. Rosanna argued that she was working with Barbara in case Carly was unable to make the designs needed for the next show. Craig countered that if Barbara ended up doing any work for Monte Carlo, he was resigning, but he assured her that he was not giving up on them.
Mike stopped by Carly's hospital room to offer his help moving her to the Snyder farm, but she asked him to back off. Craig stopped by after his argument with Rosanna and again pushed Carly to finish her designs. Jack was upset when he figured out that Carly had lied to him and was still working for Craig.
After making love, Molly and Dusty were interrupted when Rose advised Dusty that she needed to pay the landlord within 24 hours, or she'd lose the perfect spot for her beauty parlor. Later, giving her the money she needed, Dusty insisted that they be partners in her venture. He then advised Barbara that he was going to need more money for their plan.
Molly hinted to Mike about her night of passion.
