Reva and Billy set out to elope in Las Vegas. When they arrive at the casino, Reva has a momentary faintly spell. She tries to let Billy get out of the marriage, but Billy suggests they let lady luck show them what they should do. They go to a blackjack table and decide that if the first card turned up is black, they will not marry. If the card turned up is red, they will. The card is red and they agree they will marry. Billy promises Reva that he will let her lean on him, make her laugh, and let her cry when it's because she will feel better after she does. On their way to get married, they play the slots and hit the jackpot.

At the farmhouse, Cassie is trying to find information on Reva's medication via the Internet. Josh stops her and insists they take advantage of a romantic night with the storm coming in. They discuss their anticipation at what the night would bring them. They both realize it will be the first time they make love. Josh turns out the lights and they light candles, making the decision for the two of them that tonight is the night. Information on Reva's medication is on the computer screen, but they do not see it. They proclaim that their time leading up to this night has not been wasted. They head toward love-making.

Alan catches Jonathan and Tammy kissing and photographs them. Alan thinks he has them. Jon immediately begins berating Tammy for stalking him. He yells that she needs to realize he is a married man and she needs to let the past go. Tammy says that kissing Jon makes her certain that it is all over between them, although she looks devastated. Remy shows up to take Tammy away. Alan starts looking as though he is convinced Tammy and Jon are really over. However, he later comes upon Lizzie and Jon as Jon is trying to plan reuniting with Tammy that evening. Forced by Alan's intruding hand, he agrees to let Alan take him and Lizzie back to the penthouse together.

Meanwhile, Tammy has been taken home by Remy. She decides she needs to move on and celebrate her award. She and Remy leave to celebrate together. An angry Jon tries to contact Tammy, but can't as she's left her cell phone in her room. He becomes violent in the penthouse and begins tearing it apart as a stunned Lizzie looks on.

At the Beacon, Olivia is confronting the "hitman," telling him she wanted Ava scared, not dead. He says that it's too late and that Olivia better pay him what she owes him. Frank overhears the commotion in the room and demands Olivia open the door. When the "hitman" leaves, Olivia lets Frank in. He takes her to Emma to show Olivia that her daughter is fine. When they get to Emma, Olivia says that "she looks just like her." Frank is confused. He offers to take babysitter Jane home and leaves. Olivia sends Emma to bed, with the promise she'll tuck her in. Olivia begins drinking heavily and crying. Ava shows up, declaring that she is not the ghost Olivia would want her to be. Olivia tries to hug Ava, but Ava won't have any of it. She lashes out at Olivia, telling her that since Olivia has tried to kill her twice, she would see to it that Emma was taken away from her. Olivia tries to tell Ava that Ava is her daughter, but Ava leaves after saying that Olivia doesn't deserve a daughter. Olivia is left alone, crying hysterica

In Vegas, Billy runs into Gus and Harley, still in town from the Springfield Burns case, and explains he's getting married. When Reva joins, it's momentarily awkward, until Reva asks them to be their witnesses. While alone with Billy, Gus realizes this is the real thing for Billy. And while Harley helps Reva get ready, everything is fun and games until Reva slips up and says she's ready to marry Josh. The wedding begins, but Reva remembers her wedding to Josh, and calls it off. Billy's hurt, but understands. Reva declares to a photo of Josh that he'll always be her only husband – even in death. Back at the farmhouse, Cassie is worried Josh is thinking about Reva, but he assures her the only thing on his mind is Cassie, and they share a romantic evening. Rick and Mel wind up in the ER the same night, and they inch closer, but a visit from Alan asking about Beth has Rick feeling guilty. Rick tries to cement things between him and Mel by going out for a drink. They reminisce about good times and the old days of Mel leaving love notes in Rick's pockets. When he walks off to take a call, Mel decides to leave him a new note in his jacket – but is stunned to find a key to the Beacon Hotel.

Inside the Light: Oh, Baby, Baby

Super Cop Gus and Badge Woman Harley are on an undercover drug sting at Towers. Gus plays the buyer. He slinks up to a busty blond in a red dress at the bar to make the exchange. Once the deal goes down, Harley, playing the role of Gus' wife, storms into the restaurant and pounds him with her purse for sneaking out to feed his habit. Once they reveal they are working undercover, uniformed Remy and Marina arrive to cuff her.

Back at home, Gus makes a hot dog dinner as Harley and the kids unpack things in their newly built, but unfinished, home. Over dinner, Gus wants to toast that things can't get any better than this, but Harley cuts off all the jinxing clichι talk. She opts to just celebrate today's happiness. Later Gus recounts to the kids an interactive tale of Super Cop and Badge Woman. In his tale, Super Cop saves the day by apprehending the "bad sugar" dealer, and Badge Woman helps by calling for back up. Frank arrives to inform them that their perp from tonight implicated her husband as her supplier. He wants him apprehended tonight. Harley calls Ashlee, the DA's daughter, to baby sit.

Outside the door at the Clayton Arms Hotel, with gun raised, Gus is disappointed tht Harley and he have to be there instead of spending time with the boys. He and Harley giggle as, on Gus' cell phone, they view the spy camera he set up to watch the boys and the babysitter. The bad guy is escaping as Gus shares his anxiety that maybe he did jinx them with the whole super couple, super life thing. They hear a window open inside the room and bust the door open. The suspect has escaped, but he left behind a baby girl on the bed. Harley takes the adorable doll like girl into her arms.

Gus can't understand what kind of father leaves his baby behind. Back at the station, Harley and Gus try to entertain the baby as they wait for social services. Harley suggests The Itsy Bitsy Spider - the only children's song Gus knows. Gus hates all those creepy kid songs about spiders and bridges falling down. He thinks these songs are the reason kids have issues and wind up in boarding school. Nonetheless they sing it, and Gus horribly messes up the words as Harley sings them correctly. Frank comes over to let them know that no one is claiming the baby. Gus is very upset that no one is concerned about this new born. Harley informs him that she's ten months old. She offers to stay at the station with the baby until social services comes. Gus asks her if she's going to breast feed the baby, and Harley explains that she can't just turn it on and off. She ushers him out of the station to go take care of their boys.

As Gus is getting the boys ready for bed, Harley comes home carrying the baby and some groceries for her. The boys are very excited and ask the child's name. When they learn she has none, Zack and Jude want to name her Spot. After other similar unsuitable names are suggested, Gus suggests April, which wasn't bad, even though it still got shot down, one of the boys comes up with Gracie. Because there is no crib, Gracie sleeps between the super couple. The moment the lights go out, Gracie cries.

The next morning is hectic as Super Cop and Badge Woman ready the boys for school on only an hour's sleep. Super Cop realizes he sent one of the boys out still in his pajama top. He yells after him to turn it inside out when he gets to school. Harley, reluctant to leave the baby, goes ahead to the station while Gus stays with her. Gus says he'll be in after he contacts social services.

Frank ribs Harley for being up all night. When Harley explains that Gracie kept them up, Frank warns her that she is getting too attached to a child who doesn't belong to them. Frank wants to know if Gussie-Poo is coming in today. Harley says after he talks with social services. Frank states social services have been trying to contact them at their house all morning. Frank suspects Gus' intentions since they haven't heard back from him. Harley defends Gus' big heart and dedication but rushes home to check on the baby and her husband.

Harley discovers Gus is alone. He located the baby's grandmother, who was extremely worried about her granddaughter, Sydney. Heartbroken, Harley listens as Gus sullenly explains the baby is gone now - just like Harley wanted and now her life is back to normal. Still attached to the baby, Harley gets Gus to arrange a good-bye. They met Sydney and her grandmother at Towers, where the grandmother praises Gus for being so protective over Sydney. Harley says a bittersweet goodbye to the baby, but still she cannot take her eyes off her as they walk away.

While back at the station talking to Frank about what a wildcard Gus is, Harley gets an epiphany about her husband. She finds him on Main Street, looking over paperwork and tells him she never realized they never talked about having children of their own. Gus is a little emotionally defensive but says he isn't afraid of talking about kids. He says everything is okay as it is. He doesn't have any kids of his own and Harley thinks he might be just settling. As a recovering drug addict, Gus isn't sure she would even want to have children with him. Harley says that she doesn't think that when she sees him. As much she loves him, she has been selfish not to consider that he could want his own child. They agree to talk about it.

They discuss the pros and cons of having a baby all day at work and over drinks at Towers. Harley groans at the thought of nine months of pregnancy and Gus cringes to imagine watching the birth. They share a smile, dreaming of how worth it everything will be once they have their own baby.

Back home they ponder how the boys will adjust a new baby. Once they are in bed, Gus believes they can keep hashing it out, but it comes down to whether or not they really want it. Harley asks him does he really want it. Gus feels that he would love to have a baby, but he doesn't want just anyone's baby. He wants a baby with Harley, or he'll just pass on having one at all. Harley admits she's never had a baby in a stable family environment before. She trusts Gus will be there for the family. He asks her what they are saying. She says they are saying what they are saying. After they share a tender, knowing stare, she utters that she loves him. He says he loves her, too. They wondrously utter the word baby, kiss and turn off the lights.

Jonathan comes to Reva, fearing he's losing Tammy. Reva, feeling solid in her campaign to get Josh and Cassie together, thinks it's time to focus on helping Jon – only she has to deal with her own problem first. The pain has been increasing from the cancer, and she's gotten a hold of some marijuana, which she hopes will help with pain relief. Jonathan's excited at the prospect, though Reva makes it clear this is for her only. As Jon rolls the joint for Reva, she starts her plan to fix Jon's problems by leaving a message for Alan. Alan returns her call after her buzz kicks in – and at Beth's urging – suggests they go out for a family dinner. Stoned Reva agrees. At the dinner, Jon clues in Lizzie about Reva's odd behavior, and more than once, Lizzie jumps in for the rescue. However, every time Reva makes a point for family unity, Alan spins it to his own advantage by calling Reva's family unfit. At the same time, Tammy takes up Remy's invitation to join the Bauers for some family fun. Mel worries Remy's getting in to deep with Tammy. Meanwhile, Rick gets a call from Beth about getting together – but deletes it. Mel is still worried about the Beacon card she found in Rick's pocket. Later, both parties are at Towers, and Beth uses a text message to meet Rick privately at the bar. Rick tells Beth their affair is over – Mel wants to give their marriage another shot and he agrees. Meanwhile, Jon is irked by Tammy being with Remy and Tammy is hurt by what she perceives as Jon's new family. Tammy leaves, and seeing how badly Jon wants to be with her, Reva creates a distraction so Jon can sneak off, too. Alan blasts Reva for deserting her children, while Tammy stuns Jon by saying she can't do this anymore. Josh reassigns Cassie to work in the office, which bothers her until Josh explains this isn't just an office job – he's making her full partner in the business.
