Ian was pleased to see how well Arianna's recovery was going. Joe suggested that since Arianna was doing so well, maybe it was time for Ian to get his life back. Ian decided that Joe was right and he went in to see Arianna. She thanked him for saving her life and wished him luck with Eve. Ian didn't know where he should look for Eve first until he remembered the cabin. Though Eve was prepared to leave for a new adventure, she went back to the monastery and confessed to Michael that she had no clue how to start. She asked him if she could stay and help him with the restoration until she figured something out. Michael surprised her with his adamant refusal. He wouldn't give her good reasons for his denial though and Eve eventually got him to agree to let her stay for a few days. Alone, Michael prayed for Eve's safety and asked that nothing bad be allowed to touch her. Frank covered when Karen questioned his words of time travel. He was going to leave her alone to rest, but she didn't want to be apart from him. He sat beside her on the bed and told her a fairy tale that was remarkably similar to Frank's journey through time. Karen cried over the beautiful story and told Frank that it sounded strangely familiar. Livvie confided in Alison that Jack had been overly passionate in bed the night before. She became too embarrassed to go into greater detail, but Alison made her promise to tell her more later. Jack sauntered in and asked Alison if they had been talking about him. Their conversation was interrupted when Garcia and Andy came in for a cup of coffee. Alison was shocked by Jack's antagonistic attitude towards the cops and diverted his attention from them by teasing him about his wild night. Jack told her he would show her exactly how wild he was and he pulled her into a kiss. Just then, Jamal and Zach walked in. Jamal pulled Jack off of Alison while Zach slipped away after spying the cops. Andy asked if anyone wanted to press charges, but nobody did. Jamal couldn't believe that Jack would betray his friendship in such a way. Alison took it lightly, assuming Jack had been joking. Livvie, who had come in when Jamal hit Jack, was also stunned by Jack's behavior. Jamal told Jack that he didn't want his help with the race because Jack was acting too weird. Livvie confronted Jack and asked him what was going on. Jack had no idea what was wrong with him.
A grateful Arianna fervently thanked Karen for donating part of her liver and thereby saving Arianna's life. Karen told Arianna that she wouldn't have had the courage to do it if it hadn't been for Eve. Arianna revealed that Eve would find out about her sacrifice because Ian went in search of her. When Karen left, Gabriela came in and said she had placed a call to Victor. She asked if Arianna was sure about her plans and Arianna said it was time for her to begin her life.
Karen persuaded Joe to release her from the hospital. Frank made her
comfortable at home. He remembered that he still had her locket and returned
it to her as Scott and Rhonda walked in to visit. Scott thanked Frank for
taking such good care of Karen and told him that they would be visiting for a
while if he wanted to take a break. He agreed that it would be a good time
to leave for a while. Rhonda saw the locket in Karen's hand and told Karen
how proud Caroline would have been for what Karen did, and the person she has
become. She laughed and told them that she almost didn't go to the dance
the night Karen was conceived, but that a friend who had been helping her
through all of the things that had been going on in her life had also
encouraged her to go. Scott asked Rhonda who the friend was and she told him
that it wasn't anyone he would know, he wasn't from Port Charles; he was from
the future. Hearing this intrigued Karen because of the time travel story
that Frank had told her in the hospital. She asked more about this friend
and Rhonda said that she didn't remember very much, he had dark hair and
ironically enough, his name was Frank.
