Katie calls Margo from Paris, wanting to talk about Mike whose ad for "Street Jeans" she has seen in a Paris fashion magazine. Instead, Margo asks her if she has heard from their brother, Craig, recently. Katie has not, and finally comes out and asks Margo is Mike is seeing anyone new in Oakdale.

Paul and Rosanna return to Fairwinds from their honeymoon in Bermuda to find Mike and Jennifer curled up together and asleep on the couch. Mike and Jen are embarrassed, and when Jen takes Paul out of the room to see the "Street Jeans" ad, Rosanna teases Mike about his feelings for Jen. He assures Rosanna that he and Jen are taking things slowly. Mike and Jen leave, and Mike takes her to the Lakeview.

Lily and Sierra go to the Oakdale Police Department together, although Sierra is reluctant to believe that anything has happened to Craig. She feels Craig is pulling another of his stunts for attention, but Lily is truly concerned. She interrupts Margo's phone conversation with Katie to ask her to put out an all points bulletin on Craig.

Meanwhile, Craig awakens in a monk's cell in some unknown location. He realizes he has been drugged and abducted, and is stunned to find he is wearing monk's sackcloth. A Brother Francis brings him water and bread but refuses to answer any of Craig's questions. Instead, he urges Craig to "reflect on his life."

He grabs Carly and tells her how much he loves her and that she did the right thing in not ever giving up on him. They share a kiss as Jack tells Carly that she is his whole life. Then he remembers Julia, as well, and she walks through the door and begins verbally sparring with Carly. Jack tells her he remembers his other life now.

Rosanna and Paul continue their honeymoon at Fairwinds and make love in the living room. Paul wants to discuss the reminders of Cabot that he is afraid will crop up at Fairwinds, but Rosanna assures him that she is not fearful of that. Paul gives her a picture of himself in a beautifully etched glass box as a present, and Rosanna is thrilled with it.

Katie boards a plane headed for Oakdale, clutching the "Street Jeans" ad of Mike.

Sierra, Lucinda and Lucy discuss Craig's disappearance and Lucy is certain that it's just another of her father's stunts to get her attention. Dusty, however, walks into the room surprising Lucy, who assumes he has come to see her. He has – but to return her belongings, not to beg her forgiveness, as she obviously had hoped. He also says he isn't sure the disappearance is typical Craig theatrics. Dusty announces that Dominic Ramsey has been released on parole and that he didn't seem the least bit surprised to hear about Craig's disappearance. After Dusty leaves, Raphael drops by and is invited to dinner at Lucinda's. Despite Sierra and Lucinda's insistence that Craig will return on his own, Lucy begins to suspect he will not – and Raphael agrees to help her look for him. They embrace – clearly, Raphael sees Lucy as much more than a childhood friend.... Meanwhile, when Dusty runs into Dominic, he accuses him of knowing more about Craig than he lets on – Dominic spars with Dusty, yet denies nothing.

However, in an undisclosed location, Craig is indeed being held against his will. As he tries to learn where he is and why, he finds more questions than answers. The only soul at this mysterious monastery who will speak to him is a monk who tells him his life has been a waste of time and this "place" is Craig's last chance. Not impressed with the speech, Craig escapes through a conveniently open window.

At Fairwinds, a spooky place on the sunniest of days, Rosanna is startled by the sound of a baby crying and drops the antique crystal box that Paul gave her as a wedding gift. The crying stops just in time for Will and Paul to enter the room – when Rosanna asks if they heard "the sound," they tell her they only heard the sound of the breaking glass of the box. When Paul goes to do an errand, Rosanna convinces Will that she indeed does want him to live at Fairwinds, despite his history of mental illness. Paul returns with a replica of the gift that was broken, and, after Rosanna assures them she feels better, the men leave the mansion for yet another errand. Moments after their departure, Rosanna hears the cries again and, this time, she is shocked and frightened to find a baby doll hidden under a table.

Back in Montana, in what has to be a very cold barn in more ways than one, Jack has found himself in quite a pickle. Now that he has regained his memory and likeable personality, he realizes that Julia is still acting as if he belongs to her. Jack realizes that nothing but brutal honesty will get through to her – "I love Carly and I look at her and it's like I never left." But Julia, with no small amount of anger and through yet another bucket of tears reminds him that he did leave Carly, and has made promises to her and JJ. Both Carly and Julia would like to know where they stand but Jack is understandably confused. As he makes arrangements for all three of them to return to Oakdale, Julia attacks Carly and assures her that she is not giving up on Jack. Carly doesn't doubt her – but she rejoices in a few moments of bliss as Jack returns to their home in Milltown, and the Snyders enjoy a sweet family reunion.
