Livvie was still furious with Kevin for locking her up and could not believe that Victor was helping him. She refused to listen as he tried to assure her that they where only trying to protect her. She began having flashbacks about the times that she had spent with Caleb, and all of the wonderful things that he would tell her when they where together. She told Victor that Caleb would not hurt her, and she would see him again like it or not.

Thinking that Alison was in danger, Jamal began to attack Jack. Alison was horrified and begged Jamal to stop. She told him that she knew about Jack and that she was only tried to comfort him. Jamal quickly apologized to Jack and told him that he had just thought the worst because he knew that Jack would be in need of blood soon. Jack told him that he would have reacted the same way. He then told them how he ran out on Livvie after seeing that he had fangs. Jamal told him that he was just in his room, and Livvie was not there. Fearing for her safety, they quickly left to find her before Caleb did.

Lucy went to Kevin's office to tell him about her theory on Caleb, and could not believe it when Kevin told her that he had locked Livvie up in a hospital room to keep her safe. Lucy then began to tell him about the movie she had watched and how she had come to the conclusion that Caleb was a vampire. Kevin told her that was impossible, and her that he didn't have time for nonsense when his daughter was being stalked by a killer. After searching everywhere for Livvie, Jack, Jamal and Alison came bursting into Kevin's office hoping that he would know where she was. They where equally as shocked when Kevin told them where Livvie was. Jack told him that even with Victor and a guard, Livvie was not safe from Caleb. He knew just what to do to be invited into almost anywhere. Kevin told Jack that he was wrong, but Lucy picked up on Jack's comment about needing to be invited in. Lucy asked Jack if Caleb was a vampire and Jack told her that it was true. Alison and Jamal backed Jack's claim and told Kevin that Livvie was in real danger. This made Kevin even more angry, and when Jack told him that Livvie would be safer at the lighthouse with all of them there to protect her Kevin told them that Livvie was not leaving the hospital. Frustrated, Jack lunged at Kevin and threw him across the room.

When Eve saw Ian struggling with the computer, she offered to help him open a E-mail attachment. Ian stopped her and told her that it was a background check on Michael. Shocked, Eve questioned Ian's reasons for doing this. Ian told her that he thought there was more to Michael's story, his presence in Port Charles. Eve still insisted that he was all wrong about Michael so they agreed to open the file together. After reading the report Eve was pleased that everything checked out as Michael had said. Ian still believed that Michael was still keeping something from them and decided to confront him directly to get his answers, but when he went into Michael's room, he was not there. Eve became angry thinking that Michael must have overheard their conversation and left. Eve and Ian began to argue but where interrupted by a phone call from the hospital. Eve insisted that Ian go to work before she said anything that she would regret later.

Michael had gone to tell Caleb that he would not be able to harm Eve or the baby, and had even moved it with them to be sure of their safety. Caleb told Michael that he would not stand in that way of him finally having a family. Caleb went on to taunt Michael about how he was really lusting after Eve and if they worked together, he could have the baby, and Michael could have Eve. Furious to hear Caleb say this, Michael lunged at him, but after their scuffle, Michael was lying unconscious in the alley.

A few minutes after Ian had left Eve went to answer a know at the door thinking that it was Ian coming back to apologize, but was startled to find Caleb leaning on the doorway asking to come in.
