Matt, Ellen, and Sebastian
Matt arrives at Ellen's apartment while she is packing for her trip to New Orleans. He is very upset that she still intends to go. He gives her an ultimatum, "If you go to New Orleans with Sebastian then we are through!" Ellen apologizes and told Matt that she has to go. Matt said, "Then I guess you have made your choice."
Ellen arrives at Sebastian's hotel room with her bags. Sebastian is happy that Ellen is going with him. Within minutes of Ellen's arrival, Sebastian collapses. Ellen calls for an ambulance. When they arrive at General Hospital, Ellen calls for the doctor on call to find out that that would be Matt.
Lucy, Kevin, and Eve
Lucy arrives at the Lighthouse pretending to gather information for Scotty and her trip to New York. She nonchalantly asked Kevin what had occurred with Eve's lunch date with DV. Of course Kevin did not know that Eve had had lunch with DV. Kevin played it off real cool by saying that Eve was her own person and he wasn't her keeper.
Lucy tried to add doubt to Kevin's mind by insinuating that Eve probably had a lot of secrets that she has told no one about, including Kevin. Kevin took up for Eve by telling Lucy that he knows what she is up to and it is not going to work. He asks her to leave. Lucy denies coming to the lighthouse with the intent of trying to cause problems in Kevin and Eve's relationship.
After Lucy left, Kevin calls Eve only to find that she was not at the hospital. He leaves a message for her to call him as soon as she arrives. When Eve does return Kevin's call, Kevin asks her if she had lunch with DV. Eve admits that she did have lunch with DV in an attempt to help Scotty and Lucy. She explained that she needed to find out if DV was causing this trouble because of her. Kevin was worried that DV might have been trying to force Eve into something that she did not want. Eve told Kevin that DV said that the only reason that he did what he did was to eliminate the competition from the Serena line.
Kevin told Eve that it was Lucy who told him about the lunch. He also told her that he defender her right to privacy. Eve was very appreciative. They ended their phone conversation on very good term. As Eve turns around, she comes face to face with Lucy.
Lucy begins to harass Eve for details about the lunch with DV. Eve again told Lucy that she has no new information that will help her. Of course Lucy was not satisfied and told Eve that she and Scotty are going to New York to dig up information on DV and they will find whatever Eve is trying to hide. Eve told her to do whatever it is she wants and walks away.
Chris, Courtney, and Frank
Courtney and Chris are in the living room of Chris's apartment. Courtney is only wearing the top of Chris's pajamas and Chris is wearing the bottoms. Chris asks Courtney how Frank knew about the Connellos money. Courtney told him that Frank was always sticking his nose where it does not belong. Chris seems to buy her answer.
Meanwhile, Frank is still listening to Chris and Courtney's conversation. He has placed a picture of Courtney on the wall and is throwing darts at her face calling her a back stabber, double-crosser, and an evil bitch.
Later, Courtney asks Chris if he will ever trust her again. He responds no. She looks hurt. Chris is quick to explain that trust's no one. He learned that lesson along time ago. Chris picks Courtney up and carries her into the bedroom.
While lying in bed, Courtney asked who was the person who taught him not to trust. Chris confided that he had learned the lesson from his father. He told her about this scam that he and his father had when he was but fourteen. His father had several loan sharks after him for gambling debts. He would steal fur coats and sell them whole sale. Chris would be the middleman for his father. The problem was that the more money that they made, the father would gamble more. One day, Chris forgot to take the price tag off of one of the furs. The wholesaler realized that they were stole and refused to do business. The loan shark came looking for the money and Chris. He then was beat as a warning to the father. Chris went looking for his dad but could not find him. He eventually found him and his family in this seedy little motel. The father explained that he left Chris because he screwed up. The lesson to learn in life is not to trust anyone and you will not get hurt.
Later that day, Courtney arrived at the stake out room and confronted a very upset Frank. Frank accused her of trying to set him up. She tried to explain that she was on his side. She knew that she would have to feed Chris with information that held a hint of truth in order to get him to trust her again. Courtney bragged how she is convinced that Chris believes her. Their conversation was halted when they heard Chris's doorbell ring.
Chris let his private investigator in. They both went right to the bug and spoke loud and Clear. Chris told his investigator that Frank was using Courtney and she was innocent.
Courtney and Frank just smiled not realizing that Chris was setting the bait.
