Still distraught over learning that she isn't pregnant, Lucy helps Scott
get ready for his court date. While she is upstairs getting him a tie,
Gail and Lee arrive. They are obviously shocked to see Lucy coming down
the stairs in her bath robe. Scott explains that Lucy is staying with
him because of the threats she has received. Ellen arrives to babysit
Serena while Lucy and the Baldwins head off for court.
Kevin told Eve about his visit to see Greg Cooper, and Eve is upset
when she learns that the killer is attempting to implicate her.
Feigning panic, Julie calls Kevin and leaves a message on his machine
asking for another therapy session. Before she leaves, she grabs an
umbrella and dips its sharpened tip into a bottle of poison.
Victor comes home with real estate flyers advertising the house on
Jasmine Island. Kevin told him that Julie is on her way over and asks
for some privacy during her visit. Victor agrees, reluctantly, to stay
out of Kevin's way, but when Julie arrives carrying the umbrella, Victor
grabs it from her hand, believing the handle might conceal a blade. He
breaks the handle off and, over Julie's objections, takes it to the
other room to attempt to repair it.
Julie told Kevin that she feels anxious because people like Victor
still suspect her of being the killer. She says her dreams are getting
creepier and produces the journal she has been keeping. Julie sees the
real estate flyers for the Jasmine Island house. Victor comes back
without the umbrella, saying he was unable to repair it and has thrown
it away. Julie reacts angrily, telling Victor he had no right to discard
the umbrella. Kevin gives her one of his own umbrellas when she leaves.
Outside the courtroom, Eve apologizes to Karen for getting Scott in
trouble. Karen told Eve that Scott's behavior is not her fault. Lucy
and the Baldwins show up, and Scott stays in the hallway to talk to Eve
for a moment. Eve told Scott she wants to lie for him on the stand, but
he won't let her.
Ellen and Serena plan a surprise treasure hunt for Scott and Lucy when
they return from court. Serena gets the map Scott brought back from
Florida to use as a pattern for her own map of the firehouse.
After the D.A. makes his opening remarks, Lee argues that Scott is
pleading not guilty because his actions and conversations with Eve are
protected by attorney/client privilege. Eve is called to the stand.
While the D.A. grills her about the bracelet, forcing her to admit that
Scott has committed perjury and obstruction of justice, Scott stands and
offers to change his plea.
While Kevin and Victor discuss the possible reasons Greg Cooper might
have for implicating Eve, Julie uses a pay phone to call the realtor and
make an appointment to see the house on Jasmine Island.

Victor told Kevin the realtor has arranged for him to meet a
prospective buyer for the house on Jasmine Island and takes off to cozy
the place up. Meanwhile, Kevin heads for GH to compare notes with Eve
and come up with some clues to the killer's identity.
At the Scanlon house, Lark prepares a plum pudding from Mary's recipe.
While her back is turned, Julie slips some opinion into the batter.
Frank comes into the kitchen and tries to sneak a taste, but Julie
stops him. Then she urges him to convince Mary to come home to stay with
them for Thanksgiving.
As Scott and Lucy prepare to play Serena's treasure hunting game, Eve
calls to find out if Scott has heard anything from the judge and to once
again apologize for getting him into so much trouble. Scott once again
absolves her of any responsibility. Serena comes in with the original
Florida treasure map, which she places on the coffee table. Lucy and
Scott dive in and begin to play her treasure hunting game. When they
finish, Serena asks them if they think the Florida map could really lead
them to a buried treasure. She reaches for the map and accidentally
spills Lucy's coffee cup on it. While Lucy dries the map, Scott calls a
friend from the library who specializes in restoring damaged documents.
Joe and Frank invite Mary to stay with them when she is released from
the hospital, but she refuses. A while later, Karen talks to Mary and
tries to convince he to reconsider their offer, pointing out that Mary
should feel fortunate to have such loving sons. Mary relents and tells
Joe and Frank she will stay with them for a short while.
Claude, the document restorer, comes to the firehouse and examines the
treasure map. He assures Scott that he can repair the damage done by the
spilled coffee, and Lucy notices that an "underimage" seems to have
appeared where the coffee was spilled. Claude told Serena that the
document is likely very old and is drawn on true vellum.
Kevin arrives at the hospital just as Eve hangs up, and she told him
she feels responsible for Scott's problems but she has to accept that
Scott is with Lucy now. Kevin asks Eve if she was able to obtain the
schedules for each of the people trapped in the elevator on the day of
the bombing. She has, and when they compare notes, they realize that
there is a large gap in Julie's schedule for that day. Kevin recalls
that Julie has told him she was working on the computer in the on-call
room during that time. He and Eve go to the on-call room to check the
computer's logs to see if Julie really was there. The computer usage log
for the day of the bombing reveals that Julie was not logged on, but
someone named "Marcia" was. Eve points out that Victor's mistress was
named Marcia. After several failed attempts at breaking into Marcia's
account, Eve succeeds using the password "homicide." She and Kevin
examine Marcia's saved e-mail files and discover a diagram that explains
how to manufacture a bomb.
Victor arrives at the Jasmine Island house and gives Mary a call to make
sure she is all right. He then checks the answering machine and hears a
message from "Marcia" saying she will be there presently. He busies
himself trying to make the place more homey. When he answers the door
expecting to meet the buyer, he finds Julie on the doorstep.
