At the Lewis home, Sandy questions Reva about whether Marah stayed away from the Thanksgiving dinner assuming that he would be there. Reva assures him that he had nothing to do with her decision. She explains that it has to do with her relationship with Marah, and tells him that Marah was mad at her for overstepping where Jeffrey is concerned. On another subject, Reva tells Sandy that on days like today, she would always wonder what kind of man her son had grown in to, and now she knows. She tells him that he is a terrific young man. Sandy tells Reva that appearances can be deceiving. Reva remembers other times that he has said the same thing and wonders why he continually says that. She questions whether there is something that he is not telling her. Sandy tells her that he is just worried that she is expecting so much and reminds her that he may not stay in Springfield for good. Reva tells him that no matter what happens, he will always be her son. Before he leaves, Reva sends him home with a bag full of leftovers. She comments that before she would send Shayne and Marah off to wherever they were going, she would always kiss them goodbye. Sandy turns his cheek toward her and lets her give him a kiss goodbye.
Just outside, Shayne and Josh are having a private conversation. Shayne wants to speak with Josh about the pressure he felt when he was playing baseball. Josh jumps to the conclusion that Shayne intends on yelling at him. Josh has felt since the accident that he was in the wrong pushing Shayne so hard, but instead, Shayne tells him that he wants Josh to push that hard once again. Shayne wants Josh to be his physical therapist. Sandy steps out to say goodbye to Josh and offers to help Marina get Shayne home. That leaves Reva and Josh home alone. Inside, Josh tells Reva that Shayne asked him to be his rehab coach. She tells him that he is the best person for the job. As Josh is leaving, they share a goodbye kiss themselves.
Cassie's Thanksgiving is going well and love seems to be in the air. She notices the attraction that Marah shows toward Jeffrey and later apologizes to Jeffrey for assuming that he was the aggressor. He tells Cassie that he doesn't need an apology; he needs help. Cassie tells him that he needs to talk to Marah because a woman needs to know where one stands. Jeffrey might have just overstepped when he asks Cassie whether she has told Edmund that she loves him yet.
Tammy gives Edmund a gift of thanks for all he did in helping her get the part in the school play. It was a cashmere scarf, but he tells her that he can't accept the gift. He explains that he doesn't want her to spend that kind of money on him. Tammy tells him that if he doesn't keep the scarf, she will be really mad at him. Later, Tammy leaves for an evening with her friends. Cassie pulls Edmund aside so that Jeffrey can have a few moments with Marah.
Before Jeffrey can get a word out, Marah tells him that he was a perfect gentleman the previous night and that he is the kind of man she wants. She then hands him a key to her hotel room at the Springfield Inn, and tells him it can be that simple. Jeffrey tells her it is not going to happen for them. He explains that there needs to be chemistry, and he doesn't feel it. She tells him if he suddenly changes his mind, he should let her know because she'll have the hotel room for a week. After Jeffrey leaves, Carrie appears and speaks with Marah about wishes. She tells her that she doesn't know who to reach for because Sandy is her brother, Tony doesn't want her, and Jeffrey is too old. The woman tells Marah that she only wants what she can't have in order to keep from being hurt.
Inside, Cassie stuns Edmund so much that when she tells him that she loves him, he has to ask her to repeat it.
Things are winding down at Harley's as well. She even gets a hand of applause from her guests. Gus was impressed but had hoped that Eden would have come. Frank and Darci help clean up. Once they get a moment to themselves, Frank asks Darci to move in with him. She joyfully accepts. In the midst of their celebration, the rest of the Cooper clan interrupts them. They are excited for the two of them. Surprising all, Phillip shows up. He tells them the doctors told him that everything was stress related and since he got the rest he needed in the hospital, everything is back to normal. Harley offers Phillip a meal. Off to the side, Gus and Alan call Rick to question Phillip's condition. Rick gives Phillip a clean bill of health. Once everyone has left the room, Phillip notices that Olivia is looking in the window. He rushes out to see if it is really she to find that no one is there.
Tony catches up with Eden and tries to convince her that they were meant for one another. He again reminds her about their night on the roof. He tells her that they are connected. Eden stays strong against his advances, and he finally leaves.
Phillip is expected to meet Beth, Lizzie and Alan for lunch. The three of them get there ahead of Phillip and begin to wonder where he is. He is not late yet, but he's been out of the house all day. Alan is concerned because he learned Phillip declined taking some psychological tests. Moments later, Phillip arrives and tries to assure them they have nothing to worry about. He begins conversation by wanting to know what he has missed out on while he was in the hospital. He's anxious to hear more about the school play in which Lizzie will be. She doesn't offer much information. Phillip tells them to take their kid gloves off. He explains that he got all the rest he needed and is ready for things to get back to normal. He reminds them that Rick gave him a clean bill of health. What he may not know is that Rick is questioning his decision. Phillip tells them it is time to celebrate his being home and ventures off to the bar to order a bottle of wine. At the bar, the bartender turns to greet him, who just so happens to look a lot like Olivia. He starts to talk to her as though she were Olivia, but soon realizes when the woman begins to talk back to him, confused by what he is saying, she is not Olivia after all. Phillip apologizes to the woman and tells her he thought she was someone else. It appears as though Phillip may be having a setback, because once he returns to the table, he sees Olivia again and envisions her joining in on the conversation. Alan senses something is wrong with Phillip and offers to send Beth and Lizzie on a shopping spree so he and Phillip can spend some time together. Once Alan has a moment alone with Beth, he tells her Phillip is barely holding on and orders her to call everyone they discussed earlier.
Danny and Michelle allow Spaulding Enterprises to use their home for a photo shoot for their new Bad Girl product line. Eden questions Danny about whether they will be alone; hoping he will tell her there will be no surprise visits from Tony. Danny assures her they will have the house to themselves. The photographer begins to photograph Eden who is wearing a white oxford with a red striped tie. During a break, Eden begins to renegotiate her contract with Alexandra. Alexandra finally agrees to have her attorneys negotiate a deal. The photographer begins to photograph Eden some more, but this time, with her shirt unbuttoned. The photo shoot is interrupted when Tony enters the room to tell her how good she looks. Seeing the two of them together, Alexandra gets another bright idea. She wants to photograph Eden with Tony. Tony agrees without a second thought. He begins to kiss her on the neck while the photographer gets a few more shots. Alexandra suggests Tony take his shirt off for a couple more. Once he takes his shirt off, Alexandra has second thoughts after having seen his tattoo. Tony explains to Eden that the new tattoo is a reminder to him that he and Marah will never work. He continues to tell her the same reasons he and Marah won't work are the same reasons she and Bill won't work out either.
Marah, Michelle and Marina discuss the wishes Carrie keeps mentioning. They wonder whether she would even have the power to grant their wishes. Marah thinks maybe Carrie wants the three of them to figure out what they want so they can make their own wishes come true. Moments later Carrie appears again. She gives each of them a ring and tells them it is about time she makes good on her promises. She tells a story about a party just before the museum was due to open, which on the same night, a woman disappeared. She then hands each of them an invitation to a ball. When Michelle receives her invitation, she begins to daydream about a similar evening with Danny, dancing to music in an evening gown and looking completely in love. Once Marina opens her invitation, she begins to have a similar daydream herself with her and Shayne, who is also on his feet. Marah's daydream is a bit more interesting. While she is dancing with Tony, Jeffrey cuts in; she doesn't seem to mind at all. The three couples continue to share the dance floor in their daydream, but once they open their eyes, they are back to reality. Carrie explains this is not all. She is there to right a wrong. She explains there are five men in this town who want to forget about something. She wants Marah and Michelle to asks their fathers something, and she wants Marina to ask her grandfather a question as well. She wants them to ask each of the men whether they remember a woman named Maryanne Caruthers.
Marah, Marina and Michelle debate whether or not to ask their fathers/grandfather Carrie's question about Maryanne Caruthers. Marah and Michelle are hesitant, but Marina doesn't think there's any harm in asking a simple question. Without further thought about possible repercussions or to Carrie's agenda, all three separately end up asking their respective fathers/grandfather Carrie's question. They keep her existence a secret by saying they received the question anonymously. After questioning why they would ask a question at the behest of a complete stranger, all three men deny knowing Maryanne. Michelle keeps pushing the question to Ed, to the point where he acknowledges not wanting to open old wounds. Marina in turn keeps pushing the question to Buzz, who plays it a bit cooler than Ed but acts curt towards Marina. Josh plays it coolest of all but also appears nervous.
Josh calls Billy once he's out of Marah's earshot. Ed, Billy and Josh show at Company as Buzz hangs the "closed" sign on the door. Ed, Josh and Buzz snipe at each other over what was actually said or not said to Marina, Marah and Michelle. Billy tries to rally the troops by pointing out only those present in the room (plus an absent Alan) truly know what happened with Maryanne. The rest is speculation, which doesn't count in a court of law. He encourages everyone to keep a cool head. Meanwhile, Carrie has shown up to ask about the results from the three young ladies; all acknowledge their loved ones were probably lying to them and want to know the truth from Carrie. She doesn't clarify the situation much, but does let them know Maryanne Caruthers is dead.
Lizzie and Beth are still having breakfast at Towers when Lillian joins them. Lizzie sees through Beth's attempt at sugarcoating the situation with Phillip and correctly guesses an intervention is being attempted; hence, Beth is trying to keep her away while it is happening. Lizzie empathizes with her father, since she was "ambushed" in a similar way. She now fully understands the gravity of her father's failing mental health.
Alan has called Gus, Rick and Dr. Langham over to do an intervention for Phillip. Phillip becomes paranoid and delusional and accuses Alan of staging the intervention to keep him from Lizzie. He gets further confused and insists he has to get Lizzie because Olivia's with her and disaster will ensue. Alan tries to convince him Lizzie is actually with Beth. Phillip seemingly calms down and agrees to check himself back into the hospital. When the group leaves him for a moment, he sneaks out of the house.
Phillip makes a beeline to Towers to see for himself that Lizzie is okay and with Beth, not Olivia. Alan and Gus catch up to a shaky Phillip, who realizes he was about to scare his daughter with a full view of his declining state. We see it's too late, as a tearful Lizzie stares at her father. She pledges her full support to her father, while he assures her his mental state is due to how he chooses to deal with stress and has nothing to do with her actions. Both pledge to get well together. As Phillip departs with Alan and Gus, Beth again tries to put a positive spin on the situation, but Lizzie calls her on it. Lizzie shows how much she's grown by stating if they want her to be honest with them about her feelings, they have to be honest with her about how they're feeling, even if a situation is bad. A proud Beth acknowledges the wisdom of her daughter's words.
Phillip is checking into the hospital but pauses near a hospital corridor. He thinks he's hallucinating about seeing Olivia again and leaves to lie down. Moments later, a nurse who looks very much like Olivia exits the corridor followed by the real deal herself: Olivia is back in town.
Marah, Michelle and Marina sort through the facts of the mysterious story the woman, Carrie, has been telling them. They each feel Josh, Ed and Buzz had lied about knowing Maryanne Caruthers. They begin to search the internet for any information regarding Maryanne, but don't have any luck. Marah suggests they search the basement at the museum, because when she moved in, there was a lot left behind that she stored in the basement. They begin to read old newspaper clippings. There are a few about the opening night of the museum where they read the Spaulding Family financially made things possible for its opening. Carrie returns again and they begin to question her. Carrie tells Marina and Marah maybe it's time she asks the questions. She asks them to think about what Marina, Marah and Michelle have in common. After several guesses, they finally realize their names all start with "M", the same as Maryanne. Carrie tells them Horace, the owner of the museum, was Maryanne's grandfather. A part of their history is trying to be erased, and she wants to make sure the girls don't let that happen.
Danny receives some good news. The current Mayor, Mr. Hamilton, will not be running for re-election. Danny calls Michelle to give her the news, and she rushes home to discuss the life changes that Danny being Mayor would bring. When Michelle arrives, she assures him she supports whatever decision he makes. Michelle understands Danny wants to right the wrongs the Santos Family caused to the city of Springfield.
Phillip is checked into the hospital and is having trouble sleeping. Just outside his room, her overhears Olivia speaking to a nurse. Olivia has stopped by the hospital to see Dr. Sedgwick. Phillip steps out onto the hallway to look for Olivia, but she is already gone. While searching frantically, Alan and Rick show up and assume Phillip was hallucinating again. Rick tries to escort him back to his room, but Phillip is a bit resistant, thinking this time it is for real. They finally get him back into his room, but he still thinks she was really there. He wants Rick to check the security cameras, but Rick tries to convince Phillip he was just imagining things again. Phillip tells Rick he can't stay at the hospital. There are too many memories. He and Olivia had birthing classes at the hospital and many checkups were held at the hospital as well. Alan suggests another private psychological hospital and leaves the room to call Dr. Langham.
Edmund and Cassie share a romantic dinner at Towers where he gives her a diamond necklace. Later, Olivia shows up looking for Cassie. Cassie is excited to see her again and wants to know how she and her baby girl are doing. Olivia tells her that after she left Springfield, she went into premature labor and lost the baby. She explains she didn't call because she wanted to grieve on her own. Olivia says she needs to find Phillip to tell him what happened. By the look on Cassie's face, Olivia knows something is wrong and wants to know what has happened. Cassie explains that Phillip had a mental breakdown and he is in the hospital. Olivia begins to wonder how she will tell Phillip now about their baby.
Alan shows up at Towers to find Olivia has really come home. Alan questions whether she was at the hospital and tells her Phillip had heard her voice just outside his room, but everyone just thought he was hallucinating again. Olivia wants to know more about Phillip's condition from Alan. Alan suggests she and the baby go to visit Phillip. Cassie leaves the table to give Olivia some time alone with Alan so she could tell him about the baby. Once she tells Alan, he tries to convince her to not see or tell Phillip about the baby until he gets better.
Danny and Michelle's house is bustling as Reva's TV crew sets up for her interview with Danny. Bill tries to nudge Reva into soft-pedaling Danny's past. She firmly reminds him she is an unbiased journalist who will neither sensationalize nor soft-pedal Danny's past because the public will have legitimate questions regarding his ability to serve. Tony and Eden spar yet again with the same old dialogue from the past week. Marah updates Michelle on Carrie's latest visit. Michelle fears Ed has much to hide.
Alan tells Gus, Dr. Langham and Beth about Olivia's miscarriage. He is adamant Phillip is not told the sad news yet. He further opines Phillip should be sent to Ravenwood (a private mental health facility) before Olivia can get to him. Gus disagrees but Beth and, more importantly, Dr. Langham agree. Dr. Langham wants Phillip's mental condition to be stabilized so he doesn't blame himself or Lizzie for Olivia's loss. As Dr. Langham leaves to finalize the paperwork, Beth joins him so they can talk privately about how she should tell Lizzie the news of Phillip leaving for Ravenwood. They depart to Company.
Two men intercept Harley when she goes for a coffee run to Company and force her to leave with them. They take her to a cellar where her captor turns out to be Jeffrey O'Neill. Jeffrey plays cat-and-mouse with Harley before getting down to business. He wants her help with a confidential matter and he blackmails her with threats of legal trouble if she doesn't comply. He alludes to his powerful government connections, which lead Harley to figure out he's no mere small-town D.A. Jeffrey won't give her the full story on his reasons for recruiting her, but he does say she'll be receiving the thanks of a grateful nation while also protecting someone about whom she cares deeply.
Ed arrives at Danny's interview, looking very uncomfortable. After Bill asks him to be available to the press afterward (to show family unity), Ed makes excuses to Michelle. He claims he told Ross he'd watch the show with him at Company. Michelle tries to get him to stay, but Ed hightails it out and meets up with Ross at Company. Buzz and Ed then dance around the subject of Maryanne Caruthers.
Alan tries to talk Gus into spending time at Spaulding Enterprises while Phillip is recuperating. Gus refuses at first, but Alan reels him in by stating it's a temporary gig, to last only until Phillip returns. He seals the deal by letting Gus know how much he learned when he was on Gus' turf during the serial killer hunt. He only wants to share his business world with Gus, just as Gus shared his cop's world with Alan. Gus agrees to a three- to four-week stint.
Reva introduces Danny, who then addresses the TV audience. His speech is sprinkled with references to family, friends, second chances and redemption, which sparks a reaction in Ed and Buzz who are watching the show at Company. Danny credits Michelle for turning his life away from crime. Danny's speech is a hit with the crowd at Company, with the exception of Ed and Ross.
Beth spots Marah at Company. She tries twice to warn the young woman about Jeffrey O'Neill, but Marah coolly rebuffs her. Beth leaves with the parting shot that Jeffrey is not the man Marah thinks he is.
Ross and Blake discuss Danny and the mayoral position. Ross believes Danny has a very narrow constituency (namely 5th Street) and would end up dividing the town. And though he professes to like Danny personally, it's clear the lawyer still views Danny as a mobster.
A sneaky newspaper reporter goads Nico into a contrived outburst of how the Santos' murdered his parents. Meanwhile at Company, another reporter quizzes Ed about Danny's past. Ed gives the party line about how everyone should get to have second chances, but the reporter's inquiry about unforgivable sin sends Ed off in silence as Buzz looks on the scene.
