At the Camp
Holly tells Ken that the kids belong to her now and that she has no intentions of returning them. Ken informed Holly that he wants no part of it. All the kids seem to be having a good time until Susan starts questioning Lizzie about who Holly is. Susan says she isn't too sure about Holly and begins arguing with Holly after overhearing her tell Ken that Harley abandoned Susan when she was a baby. Holly told Susan that Susan mistook what she said, that she knew Harley loved her. Susan demanded to call Harley and then all of the kids wanted to call home. Holly said maybe later, that the phone was not connected during the winter. Susan went to the phone to see that it was in fact connected and began to call Harley. Holly took the phone and pressed down on the button and pretended to talk to Harley. When she hung up, she told Susan that Harley said that they should all spend the night and have fun.

At the Santos'

She told him again to get rid of it, but he left it for her to do as she wanted. After Danny left, Carmen came in with her wedding dress and asked Michelle to wear it at her wedding. Michelle agreed and told Carmen that she would make her believe in her. Carmen didn't seem convinced. Drew showed up and interrupted the confrontation. She and Michelle had a talk about Jesse and Drew's "boyfriend", "Brad." They also spoke of the wedding and ultimately the wedding night. Michelle said that she believes that Danny is beginning to have true feelings for her and she just didn't think that she could go through with her "wifely duties." They also discussed Michelle's plan involving the FBI.

Outside Danny and Michelle's bedroom, Carmen caught up with Danny and told him it was not to late to back out of the marriage. She said he did not have to go through with it and Danny replied to his mother that if she did not stop meddling, he would leave the Santo's family for good.

At the hospital

At the camp:
Susan told Lizzie and Marina that she believes Holly has kidnapped them. The two girls said that they knew Holly and that Holly wouldn't do that. Lizzie and Marina said that Susan was just acting like that because she was jealous of their knowing Holly longer. Susan denied it and told them that she had overheard Holly tell Ken that she had gotten huge doses of sedatives in case she needed to give them to the children. After awhile Lizzie and Marina believed Susan and they along with the other 5 kids devised an escape plan based on something Susan had saw on a movie. During the play that the kids were putting on for Holly and Ken the television was on behind the adults, we the viewer could see the parents on it, but Holly and Ken missed it. As for the kids plan, to make a long story short, it didn't work. Lizzie started getting upset and asking Holly not to harm them, which made Holly upset and telling the children that they are being bad.

At Reva's:
All the mother's were gathered around, frustrated about what to do. They argued back and forth about the best way to handle the situation until they decided to get WSPR over to the house and to plea for Holly to release the children by acting as if they were thanking her for helping them. Reva, as the leader, says that she knows that they all have been bad parents but that they want another chance and they want Holly to help them be better parents. All of the mom's take a turn talking to Holly via WSPR news cast, trying their best to convince her. Unfortunately, Holly missed the broadcast so far.

At the police station:
The father's were all gathered around, frustrated, one by one giving their child's descriptions to the cops. They were all angry but Buzz went nuts yelling at Frank about the cops not helping. He and Frank are in the same boat what with both having children missing, Buzz realizes that and calms down a little. Ross, also upset cannot get all the info out to the detectives, so Ben steps in and helps as much as he can. Ross seems to appreciate the help. When the mothers come on WSPR, the dad's are all watching. At first they are upset, but as they start listening to them they know that they are doing the best they know to do. One cop comes up and asks Frank to tell them where the broadcast is from and they will pull the plug on the interview. Frank knowing that the women are right, lies to the guy and tells him that he has no idea where the interview is taking place.
