As Rodi's is closing up, Bo and Grace are dancing to "Go Away Little Girl." Grace presses Bo to stay and have a drink with her, but Bo declines and tells her he will leave any future dancing dates to fate.
Asa and Renee
Asa, dressed in a cowboy outfit and carrying a lasso, proposes to Renee. Renee asks, "Why are you asking me now"? She reminds him that he left her before for Blair and Asa replies that it was the biggest mistake of his life. When Asa accuses her of something she's not telling him, Renee tells Asa she is just worried it might happen again. Asa promises it won't and goes on to recall the first time they met and he fell in love with her, a "den mother to a bunch of hookers". Nigel, also decked out in cowboy garb, comes in to tell Renee that he got a call for her about a crisis at The Palace. Asa becomes angry with Nigel because of the interruption and tells him he looks ridiculous dressed like that, and then tells him to keep the outfit on because he's starting to like it.
At The Palace
Max waits as Kelly signs out from The Palace while Blair jealously looks on. Blair has a dizzy spell and a handsome stranger named Stephen comes to her aid. Blair recovers enough to drape herself all over him in an effort to distract Max from Kelly.
Lindsay arrives at the hotel desk for her room key and is furious when she learns that Renee had checked her out during her absence.
Bo picks his key up from the front desk and turns around to see Lindsay. Bo apologizes to Lindsay about his reaction when she spilled the beans to Nora, and says he realizes now he just has to accept that his marriage is over.
Kelly and Max discuss their new living arrangements in front of Blair and then leave. Blair turns around and then collapses into the stranger's arms. Bo looks over Lindsay's shoulder and sees that Blair is in trouble and goes to her. Bo stands over Blair as she slowly regains consciousness. She is disoriented and asks what happened, but quickly becomes embarrassed and angry about everyone standing over her. Renee tells her the real reason she collapsed is because of Max and Kelly.
Bo returns to the front desk to find Lindsay standing at the end of a long line of people at the counter. She tells him that she lost her room and Bo offers to give her his room.
Renee tries to call Asa from the hotel but there's no answer. Asa comes up behind her and asks, "Are we getting hitched or not"?
Kelly writes a check for $1,000 to Max for her share of the house. As she looks around for a place to keep her things, neither of them look very happy.
Ben and Viki
Ben tries to call Kevin at the Banner, but collapses just after he identifies himself as Hamlet. At that moment, Viki walks into the attic to find him on the floor. After helping him back into bed and giving him antibiotics, she pleads with him to allow her to call for help, but Ben adamantly refuses. Viki becomes very worried about Ben and he tells her he will tell her whatever she wants to know. Just then, Jessica calls out from the other side of the door, "Mom, there's something wrong with my baby".
Ben hides as Viki lets Jessica in. Jessica is worried because the baby hasn't moved for awhile. When she leaves, Ben tells Viki to get Jessica to sit still for two hours and if there is still no movement, take her to emergency. After helping Jessica, Viki returns to Ben and says Jessica and the baby are ok. Ben then insists that he should go in the morning, but Viki refuses. Ben asks her to tell him who she really is. Viki recalls the night she and Ben met and wonders why she was spared from the plane crash that killed Mel. She tells Ben he has to live or nothing that has happened to her since the crash matters. Ben's fever finally breaks and a relieved Viki tucks him in for the night, telling him that in the morning he can tell her all about himself.
At the Banner
Kevin is frustrated and worried about the lost call from Ben. Grace is somewhat over zealous in offering to help and Kevin becomes suspicious, asking her why she is so interested. Kevin persists in his questioning and Grace tells him she just likes the excitement. She then asks him if he is worried about the safety of his source, or just losing him. She then steps over the line with a comment about his failed marriage to Cassie, but quickly backtracks when she finds she has angered Kevin.
Later, Kevin catches Grace going through his Rolodex. She tells him she's just taken a message about Blair being sick. Kevin responds that he is nervous around her and tells her to keep out of the way, stop snooping around and asking questions. When Grace tells him she would like to get into investigative reporting one day, Kevin replies that it will be on his time line and not hers. She returns to her desk and opens a file folder containing a picture of Ben.
