Remy hedges Nick's questions. She says her life was just one foster home after another. But he should already know the person she was now. He told her one of the things she dug up on him was about his inheritance. She acts hurt that Nick would think she's only interested in his money. She says she just wanted to know what his world was like, because it's so different from her own. She told him he can just go if he wants. He puts his arm around her instead. Remy tries to make it up to Nick, but he told her he needs to trust his friends, and he just doesn't trust her. Then he leaves.

Cindy and Marley make excuses to Grant to explain why they were talking in the alley. Grant decides it's time to take Cindy home. Before she leaves, Cindy reminds Marley to get Grant over to see Kirkland. Marley objects again, saying Vicky has an injunction against Grant to keep him from Kirkland. Cindy reminds Marley that it's not like Marley hasn't been trying to hurt Vicky anyway. Cindy also lets Marley know that she knows it was Donna who hit Grant and Marley with the car, not her. Cindy holds all her information over Marley's head to get her to co-operate.
Marley told Kirkland she's taking him to the carnival. Steven was already there with a friend anyway. Marley told the babysitter she can go home, but the sitter says she was told to stay the night. She gives Marley the address of the motel Jake and Vicky are staying at.
Marley calls Grant and told him Kirkland was very sad and misses him. They arrange to meet at the carnival so Grant can spend some time with his son. Cindy pretends to be asleep, but as soon as Grant leaves, she gets to work.
Grant and Kirkland meet up at the carnival. Grant told Marley Kirkland doesn't look very sad to him. He then lets her know that he knows about her efforts to hurt Vicky and her marriage, such as the potato incident. She tries to deny it, but Grant doesn't believe it. He says perhaps they can meet up the same way in the future.
Alone in the apartment, Cindy was able to go behind Kirkland's wallpaper and retrieve the incriminating cassette she hid there. She was thrilled that finally Grant will get what's coming to him. She only wishes Gary was there to share in catching Grant. Cindy fantasizes about Grant in chains and behind bars. She taunts him about all the bad things that'll happen to him, about all the people who want to see him suffer.
After seeing Kirkland with Grant at the carnival, Steven listens in on a conversation between Grant and Marley. He learns that it was Marley who let Grant know they'd be there, and he hears her tell Grant to make sure Vicky doesn't find out.

She says he must have misunderstood. Steven told her he knows a lie when he hears one. He told Marley that sometimes he feels like he doesn't know her anymore, that it's not her face, it's the way she's been acting. Marley apologizes for her behavior, and asks Steven not to tell Vicky about the incident.
Grant returns home and he and Cindy have a moment when they remember happier times in their marriage. But Cindy wills herself to be strong and not cave in to Grant again.

But, they agree, the hurting didn't stop.

At the hospital, Gary told Josie that while he and Amanda were trapped in the tunnel, the only comfort he had was the fact Josie was with Cameron. Gary was eager to get back home with his beautiful wife. He told Josie that she was all he could vision while inside the tunnel, and that's what got him through. He then wanted to know if Cameron took good care of Josie. Gary pledged his love to Josie and suggested for them to try to make a baby again.
Amanda and Cameron fought in the lobby of the hospital. Cameron said he and Josie slept together out of comfort because they thought Gary and Amanda were dead. That wasn't good enough for Amanda. He told Amanda that Josie tried to kill herself because she didn't have a reason for living without Gary. "It was the saddest thing in the world." said Cameron. Amanda replied "What was sad was watching Alli's life flash in front of my eyes." Amanda told Cameron that as tough as she is, she would have given up a long time ago. It was Gary's will to get back to Josie that gave him the determination to dig his way out of the tunnel and to pull Amanda to safety.
Amanda ran out to the hospital crying. Cameron explained how they were grieving. He said "Everything Josie and I loved was dead." Amanda replied "How about lighting a candle or saying a prayer. There are other ways of dealing with grief. Taking your clothes off was not one of them." Gary tried to take Amanda back to the hospital, but Amanda threatened to tell Gary if she goes back.

Joe returned home to Paulina. Paulina admired Rachel for never giving up hope in believing that Amanda was alive. "When does a bond between a mother and child begin." wondered Paulina. Joe wondered if this really had to do with Rachel and Amanda or Paulina and her mother, Maria. Paulina appreciated Joe for being sympathetic about her mother but knew he really didn't understand.
Jake tore in to Marley for not being the Marley that he knew and loved. He yelled at her for betraying her sister. Jake praised Vicky for being so forgiving.

Marley started to cry admitting she was a fool. She told Jake how proud she was of the work she did in China and her love for children. She said she felt sorry that Grant and Kirkland couldn't see that much of each other. Jake and Marley went over to Grant and Cindy's.
Grant asked Cindy how the stuffed animal got ripped. Cindy replied, "Does it say 'Made in America' on it, because on the commercial it says that was really the only way of true quality." Grant said it was Kirkland's, and he didn't buy it for Cindy. Grant accused her of cutting the stuffed animal open. Cindy denied it. In a deep and horrifying voice, Grant told Cindy he remembers what it was like to be married to her and does not put it passed her to do something like this. When Cindy asked Grant how it was before. He told her that she tried to get between Grant and Kirkland. She didn't believe him because of the fact she picked out wall paper for Kirkland's room. Then she decided that even if she remembered hating Kirkland, at least she would remember something. So that would be a good thing knowing she was a real person and not a lifeless being. Cindy then flirted with Grant to persuade him to understand and get them on good terms again.
Just as Grant was somewhat flirting back, there was a knock at the door. It was Jake and Marley. Jake told Grant he was a dangerous screw-up. He threatened if Grant uses Marley again to work around the court's visitation schedule for Kirkland, he would go after him. Jake said what a nice person Marley was, and she was trying to do the right thing.
To cover up for Marley for his own benefit, Grant told Jake how tonight's meeting would be the one and only time that Marley would do anything for Grant, and if he were to do anything to manipulate the situation, she would go to Victoria. Grant then complimented Marley's strength and her honest emotional state. Jake threatened Grant to not try this again.
After Jake and Marley left, Grant said how shook up Marley seemed. Cindy replied "I don't know the women. If you say she was shaken up, then she was shaken up." After she left the room, Grant said he wouldn't trust the likes of her.
Jake and Marley returned home. They discussed the awkwardness between them and their relationship as brother-in-law and sister-in-law and ex-husband and ex- wife. He said he admired her and acknowledged how he screwed up with her when they were married. He also recognized her big heart.
Cindy went into the bedroom and decided to call Joe, since he hasn't returned her call. Joe told Cindy that Gary was alive and that he will be coming home soon, and that was why he hasn't called her. Cindy was excited and relieved for Gary. Just when Cindy told Joe she had something big, Grant opened the door to listen to who it was she was talking to. Cindy heard the door open and changed the conversation as though she did not know who she was talking to, because she doesn't remember anything about her life. Grant shut the door after Cindy hung up the phone. Cindy vowed to get her revenge on Grant.
Joe wondered if Cindy was crazy or putting on an act for Grant's benefit. Paulina suggested if that were the case, she should pay a visit to her old friend.
