The teens were racked with guilt. Each had individual memories of the events leading up to the murders. Lucas reassured Georgie that the killer would be found. Brooke admitted to feeling responsible.
Nikolas and Mac, followed by the others, walked in on Faith in the boathouse. When Nikolas discovered that the killer was not in there, he made his way back to the house. Felicia questioned Justus on whether he had hid Faith at the Quartermaine house. Dillon drew attention to the fact the killer was still in the house and that they should all concentrate on that. They all got back to the house and stood in the hallway bickering. Justus resigned as Faith's lawyer. Mac and Felicia brought Faith to the freezer, hoping to frame Justus as Faith's accomplice.
Emily pulled off the killer's mask only to discover Mary behind it. She told Emily she would save Connor from her. Emily tried to convince Mary that Nikolas was safe. Mary insisted on calling him Connor. She threatened Emily. She admitted to killing Trent because she believed he was working with Emily to keep Connor prisoner. She killed Sage because she thought she was Emily. They struggled.
Lucas let Nikolas into the house. Nikolas warned them to stay in the room and to stay together. Nikolas walked into Emily's room only to find her on the floor. Fearing the worst, he was relieved to see her alive. She told him the killer was Mary. She explained to Nikolas what exactly had happened. She told him that Mary was completely unhinged. Nikolas tried to come to terms with the situation of Mary's insanity. They headed downstairs to tell the others. Nikolas and Emily told Felicia and Mac the details of what had transpired between the two women and the history behind Mary's killing spree.
Georgie and Brooke asked the channeling board who the killer was and it spelt out "widow." Dillon joined them, and he and Georgie worried about Alcazar's reaction to his niece's death. Brooke thought that Lois telling Alcazar would be a better idea than him hearing it from someone else, and just then Mary appeared at the window, smiling. They ran to the others and told them about seeing Mary. Nikolas threatened to kill Mary, in front of everyone present. The power came back on and Mac, Nikolas and Emily went to the boathouse to look for Mary. Heather claimed to be tired and she and Edward headed upstairs. Alan and Monica tried to convince Felicia that they had redeemed themselves and that they should be allowed back in the inheritance contest.
Justus ran to Faith and she warned him that the whole thing was a setup. He told her he knew, but that Mac and Felicia were tied up right now and that this would be their only chance to get away. Faith did not want him to put everything on the line for her, but he insisted and they fled.
Lucas consoled Brooke by telling her she handled the situation with strength and courage. She told him that she did not think he was as much of an idiot as she had originally thought. Meanwhile, Georgie and Dillon discussed their feelings of guilt and how they would handle Alcazar. Tracy walked in and just as she dialed Alcazar's number, Dillon grabbed the phone and hung up. He called his mother heartless and he warned her that he and Georgie were together and that she should stay out of their lives.
At the boathouse, Nikolas and Mary came face to face. She continued to call him Connor and told him that she did everything to protect him. She threatened Emily and as she lunged towards her with the knife, Nikolas grabbed Mac's gun and fired.

Jax and Courtney kiss on the terrace of her cabin on Sonny's island. Suddenly Jax finds Courtney pointing a gun at him telling him not to move a muscle. It turns out that Jax was just dreaming about kissing Courtney while sleeping on the terrace and Courtney pointing a gun at him woke him from the dream. Jax tells her she doesn't need to point a gun at him to get him to notice her. She tells him to stop flirting with her for one minute and look down near his lap on the lounger. Jax looks down near his legs and sees a coiled snake laying inches from his vulnerable parts. He asks Courtney to watch where she is aiming her gun because something far more important than his pride will be hurt if she shoots at him accidentally. Courtney waits until Jax is out of the way a little bit and shoots at the snake. The snake gets away and slithers back toward the grass.

Brooke listens to one of the tracks they recorded of Sage singing at the studio. Georgie runs into the studio in a panic and turns off the music. Brooke asks her what is wrong. Georgie tells her that Dillon is on his way over to see Alcazar and take the blame for what ended up happening to Sage. Brooke leaves a message for Lois to come to the studio immediately. Lois comes right over when she gets Brooke's message. Brooke and Georgie ask Lois to go over to Alcazar's and use the fact that he likes her to persuade him not to hurt Dillon to avenge Sage's murder. Lois defends Alcazar to them but they make a case for Alcazar wanting any kind of revenge on anyone who had anything to do with what happened to Sage. Meanwhile, Dillon does go over to see Alcazar and tells him it was his fault for what eventually led to Sage's murder. He explains to Alcazar that he was a friend to Sage but admits he used her a bit to make Georgie jealous after she dumped him. He also lies to Alcazar and tells him he was the one who locked Sage in the former freezer room to keep her away from Georgie after the pranks she pulled on them all earlier. Alcazar listens to Dillon then tells him that he doesn't believe Dillon would lock Sage in the freezer and doesn't blame him for Sage's murder. Alcazar goes over to his desk. Dillon tells Alcazar to use him as a target if he wants to avenge Sage's murder. Alcazar takes out an envelope from the desk drawer and hands it to Dillon. He explains that he found the letter in Sage's bedroom last night and that she never mailed it. He tells Dillon the letter is addressed to him and asks him to read it. He tells Dillon that he already read it. Dillon returns to the studio. Georgie, Brooke, and Lucas are there and are relieved to see Dillon in one piece. Georgie asks him if Alcazar hurt him in anyway but Dillon tells her he didn't hurt him at all but instead shook his hand and thanked him for being a good friend to Sage. The other teens are surprised by Alcazar's behavior. Dillon explains about the letter Sage wrote for him but never mailed or gave him. Dillon tells them that he can't believe he didn't really see through Sage's attitude and bravado before now. He reads the letter Sage wrote him which tells him how insecure Sage felt about herself and how she would hide it by acting like she was better than anyone and that she would test people as well. Sage thanks Dillon for being her one true friend and how he was the only person who tried to be a friend to her and that she planned to invite him on her birthday and let him invite his friends as well and that she would be her real self to them. The letter makes the others feel really sad that Sage was never allowed to show her true self to them and will never get that chance now. Dillon tells her that Sage put a used birthday candle in the envelope for him to remind him about the day he had pancakes made for her on her birthday as a surprise. Brooke reads the poem Sage wrote. Georgie and Brooke cry after the poem is read. Lois shows up at Alcazar with a gift. She asks Alcazar if Dillon was there and if he left in one piece or not. Alcazar tells her that he doesn't blame Dillon for what happened and that he is thankful to Dillon for being there for Sage when he wasn't. He blames himself for not being there for Sage when she needed him and that Sage was just as impulsive as her father was and needed guidance and attention which he never gave her. Alcazar opens Lois' gift which is a nice publicity photo they took of Sage when she signed with their record company. Alcazar gets a call from his pilot letting him know his jet is ready for take-off. He tells Lois that he is having Sage buried next to her father and grandfather in Venezuela. Lois leaves and he thanks her for being there for him and for the picture. He also tells her that unlike his brother's murder, his niece's murder will be avenged this time. Lois tells him that getting revenge won't bring Sage back and tries to encourage him to let it go.
Ric calls Sonny over to the police station. He informs him that the police believe that Justus is helping Faith hide out somewhere since he disappeared when she did from the Quartermaine estate. He asks Sonny if they can trace his accounts in case Justus tries to get money from them to help in Faith's escape. Sonny tells Ric that Justus doesn't work for him any longer and that he will not let him near his accounts since he doesn't trust him to use them to nail him for some charges. Ric tells him he isn't interested in getting him on anything right now. Sonny doesn't believe him and points out that Ric needs him in his life to feel important but not vise-versa. Meanwhile, Jason returns home. Sam notices Jason looks a little glum and asks him what is wrong. Jason tells him that he doesn't like to see people he cares about hurt themselves and explains that he just dropped Carly at the airport on her way to find her father. He worries that Carly will be rejected by her biological father and points out that she never had a father before and that DNA is just science and that doesn't make him a real father since he was just one of Bobbie's clients when she was a teen prostitute. Sam is surprised to learn Bobbie was a prostitute once. Sam agrees that DNA doesn't make someone a child's parent in the ways that really count. Sonny walks in and asks them what they were talking about when he just walked in. Jason brings up the fact that Carly is going to New York to find her biological father who doesn't know she exists and that he fears she is setting herself up to be hurt. Sonny understands Jason's worries but supports Carly's decision to want to find her father and get to know him. Sonny feels strongly about this issue because Sam is carrying his child and he wants his child to know him. Sonny asks Sam to leave him alone to talk to Jason about business. Sam goes upstairs. Sonny tells Jason that Faith has disappeared again and that Justus is probably helping her hide out since she isn't in good health to travel right now. He tells Jason to find Justus and Faith before the cops do and call him if he finds out anything. Jason leaves. Sam asks Sonny if he sent Jason off so he can talk to her alone to corner her about Jason. He tells her he wanted to talk to her alone though. He tells her that he understands that Jason wants to help with the baby but that he will be the baby's father and not Jason. Sam tells him that he will be the father but Jason will be around the baby more than he will. Faith leads Justus to some cave-like room on the Cassadine estate to hide out in. Faith tells him that Luke told her about the hide-out he sometimes uses and that it is secluded enough to keep them from being spotted. Faith starts to feel weak again after being attacked by Mary Bishop at the Quartermaines plus getting over being stabbed in jail. She starts to come down with a fever. Justus worries she will end up with pneumonia and tells her he needs to leave her there for a little while and get her some medicine to help her. Faith is reluctant to let him go but trusts him when he says he will be back. Justus calls on a pay-phone in town and gets a prescription for Faith to be ready in 10 minutes. Justus gets off the pay-phone and turns around only to come face to face with Jason, who asks him what he is doing.

On the island, Jax and Courtney were kissing, but she stopped things. She did finally admit that she wanted to make love with him but that she wants the first time to be perfect. She tried to excuse herself to freshen up, but Jax wouldn't allow her to leave the room, thinking she was just trying to get away. As they started getting romantic again, Courtney yelled to Jax that the snake was back. He didn't believe her, was bitten by the snake and passed out when he hit his head. Later, he woke up and was told by Courtney that the snake was not poisonous, so he would be fine. She then showed him that she had her bag packed and was planning to leave the island and keep away from him until the bet expired.

At Wyndemere, Emily and Nikolas discussed the charges against him for shooting Mary. Nik was convinced everything would work out okay, and they made love. At General Hospital, Lucky and Ric visited Mary. She wanted to know why they hadn't brought Connor to see her. They repeatedly told her that Connor had died in the war. Outside the room, Lucky said to Ric that he was sure Mary was only pretending to be crazy. Later, Emily visited Mary. Mary started speaking as though "Mary" were actually another person and said that Mary would never stay locked up for the crimes that had been committed. She was sure that Mary would be released after treatment. Emily asked if then she was just planning on chasing Nikolas around for the rest of her life. Mary said she was going to come back and cut Emily's heart out. When Em left the room, she ran into Liz, who was there for her nursing studies. Liz was pushing the patients' drug cart and realized she had forgotten something, so she asked Emily to watch the cart for her. A bit later, Lucky spotted Emily coming out of Mary's room.

They realized it was for Mary's ICU room!
Jason accused Justus of lying about Faith's whereabouts and said that Faith was using him. If he weren't careful, helping Faith would end up getting him killed. Helping Faith would make him as much of an enemy to Sonny as Faith already is.
Sam and Sonny continued to argue about his involvement in their unborn child's life, along with Jason's involvement. When Sonny said that he loved Jason like a brother, Sam countered that she had seen Sonny's version of love. She accused him of being devoted and protective until loving someone got in the way. He swore he would decide how much time he spent with his own daughter. Jason arrived, and Sam was asked to go upstairs so he and Sonny could discuss business. Jason told Sonny that Justus had said he wasn't helping Faith. Jason also said he didn't believe Justus but that he wasn't having Justus followed. Sonny wanted to know why. Jason said that he wanted Justus to have a chance not to be with Faith when Faith was found. Jason reminded Sonny how they had pulled Justus out of the monastery to defend Sonny in court. Sonny blew up, stating he didn't want to hear about that. He was mad that Jason wouldn't follow his orders, and he said that he wanted Faith killed-if Justus was with her, then he needed be killed, too. Sonny continually asked if Jason was going to do as instructed, and Jason finally agreed. Perturbed, Sonny left. Sam had been eavesdropping, and Jason knew it. She spoke about the differences between Sonny and Jason and said that she would never judge him for the work he does, since he had taken her in. Sam stumbled, falling into Jason's arms. Their eyes were fixed on one another.
Justus brought medication to Faith to their hiding place in the tunnels of Wyndemere. He told her about his encounter with Jason and finally convinced her to take a boat to Miami while he led Jason and Sonny in a different direction. They made love, and, afterward, Faith wondered what it was that haunted Justus. Before they could discuss that, Sonny arrived with a gun.
Carly showed up outside a building in New York City, and, when she tried to enter, was stopped by the doorman. She stated she was there to see John Durant, but the doorman said only family was allowed to enter. The doorman said everybody wanted to see Durant, and, when Carly asked why, she was shown a newspaper article and learned that Durant was a federal prosecutor who had just brought down a Soho drug syndicate. Carly tried bribing her way into the building, but the doorman told her Durant wasn't even there. She did get the information out of him that perhaps she should visit Paddy Mac's Place, a local Irish pub. When she arrived there, an interview with John Durant appeared on the TV. John stated that the media needed to quit glamorizing the mob and realize the mob for the parasites and terrorists that they are. When asked if he feared retribution, he said it was the gangsters who should be afraid. Another man in the bar appeared very interested in the telecast as well. Durant and some co-workers arrived. Suddenly, the man at the bar pulled a gun on Durant, but Carly, on instinct, grabbed the man's arm and kept anyone from getting hurt. The other men took the gunman away, and John thanked Carly. She then claimed to be a law student who had hoped to run into him there for an interview. She wanted to get some personal background information, rather than everything that was already in the papers. He mentioned that he had grown up an army brat and loved beaches, so he had enjoyed his time in Florida. As the questions persisted, Durant finally asked Carly who she really was and what she really wanted!
