A frightened Livvie returned to Caleb and finally confessed that she had been unable to kill Jack as he had ordered. Surprisingly, Caleb remained calm but then announced he'd changed her target and ordered her to work her wiles to break up Alison and Jamal. Though Jack was upset by Rafe's intrusion, he was grateful when he discovered that his spilled drink had been laced with a deadly poison. Later, Jack confronted Livvie on the bridge about the death threat.
Hoping to convince Frank that she was not back on drugs, Karen pushed Frank to confront Chris about the vampire serum. Frank did so, but Chris denied injecting Karen with anything. Frank heard Gabriela talking about the aftereffects of being a vampire and compared her feelings to Karen's. He began to suspect that Karen was telling him the truth.
Frank tried to find Karen and let her know but couldn't find her, unaware that Chris had taken her away with the idea of doing more testing and also to appease his attraction to her. Caleb overheard Chris talking about his experiment with Karen and the vampire blood and considered a solution to Livvie's refusal to kill as ordered.
Ian was at the bar, talking with Victor, when Lucy walked in. He told her he planned to visit Danny at the lighthouse. Lucy didn't think it was a good idea, but she didn't stop him. After Ian left, Lucy overheard a social worker talking on the phone. The social worker was telling someone she was planning a surprise visit to check on Daniel's living conditions. Lucy frantically asked Victor to distract the social worker so she would have time to run to Kevin's house to warn him.
Kevin and Eve were caring for baby Danny at the lighthouse when Ian arrived. He felt he should also have access to his son. Eve reluctantly agreed. Lucy ran in with a warning. A few moments later, there was a knock at the door. Lucy hurriedly ushered Eve and Ian into the closet. The social worker entered. Kevin introduced Lucy as his fiancée. Lucy cradled the baby, saying how quiet and good he was, while Kevin tried to show the social worker to the door.
Unfortunately, the social worker would not be deterred. She insisted on staying and observing. Lucy and Kevin pretended to be a normal, happy couple until Danny began to cry. Inside the closet, Eve was anxious to go out and comfort her son, but Ian held her back. Lucy attempted to calm the baby, but she didn't have a clue how to go about it. As Kevin extolled Lucy's virtues as a mother, Danny continued to wail.
Finally, as the social worker was about to jot down her observations, Lucy succeeded, and Danny fell asleep. The social worker left, and Ian and Eve rushed from the closet to check on their son's well-being. Eve was concerned that the visit had not gone well and that Danny might be put into another home. Ian believed he had a plan.
Jamal was working on a bike when Alison walked in. He still couldn't believe how she sneaked around behind his back. An exasperated Jamal claimed he wished he had never found out the truth about Hope because he felt stuck in a difficult situation. If he got involved with Hope, he would ruin the life she had with her adoptive parents. However, if he didn't show an interest in her, he would be no better than his own father, who had walked out on his family when Jamal was young.
Alison tried to explain to Jamal that no matter what he did, he was nothing like his father. Jack walked in and asked Jamal not to place all the blame on Alison. He took responsibility for his own role in the situation. Jamal felt betrayed. He couldn't understand why the two people in the world who meant the most to him would go behind his back.
Jack found Livvie at the bridge in the park. He accused her of trying to kill him. They argued, with Jack blaming and Livvie denying. Finally, Livvie decided that they were better off apart. Jack left, and Rafe appeared. He tried to reason with Livvie, telling her that Caleb was using her. He let Livvie know he had seen her poisoning Jack's drink.
Livvie didn't try to find excuses. She claimed it had been her own choice to kill Jack. She said she'd do anything to prove herself worthy of Caleb's love. Rafe pleaded with her to change sides and fight Caleb. When Livvie refused, Rafe asked what she would do when Caleb asked her to hurt her father. Rafe left, and Livvie, talking to herself, admitted she already had plans for Kevin.
Karen and Chris were chatting about Karen's feelings after spending time in the catacombs. She didn't like what was happening to her and was angry with Chris. Frank walked in, and Karen told Chris she needed to speak with him. Frank admitted to Karen that he'd talked with Gabriela and realized that Karen was having the same symptoms as Gabriela had when she'd been bitten. Karen stopped him, telling him that it wasn't the serum but that she was back on drugs.
Upset by the news, Frank told Karen he would stand by her and help. Karen responded by telling him to back off because she had to do it on her own. Karen broke off their engagement and said she would be taking a leave of absence and going into rehab. Frank let her know that he would be waiting for her. Chris returned, and Karen lit into him about everything that was going wrong in her life. He offered her a place to stay while she was gone from work. Chris, feeling a presence in the room, turned and exclaimed, "It can't be you. You're dead."
Eve and Ian anxiously awaited the court-appointed counselor and agreed that they should put up a good front so they could get Danny back. When the counselor arrived, they tried to be friendly and play nice. She could see the tension was still thick in the air. She told them both that they needed to be together for at least a week before the court could consider putting Danny back into the house. After she left, Ian and Eve agreed that they had to do what they could to get Danny back. They would live together in the apartment, but apart. Ian moved back in, but both were extremely hateful toward each other.
Lucy went over to talk with Kevin. Livvie left the room but listened in on the staircase. Lucy asked Kevin why he wouldn't help her with Christina. He told her that the situation was different and that Christina was gone. She needed to face up to that. Lucy wondered if they stood a chance for a future together. Kevin told her he wouldn't give her up without a fight, and their love should be able to help them through the difficult time.
Lucy proclaimed her love for Doc, and Doc told her that he would help her in any way he could with Christina. Livvie "talked" to Caleb, asking for help in keeping Lucy and Kevin apart. At home, Lucy talked to herself and Christina. As she went to lock the door, she realized the porch light was still on, opened the door, and found Christina at her front step.
The P.I. that Kevin had hired showed up with pictures of Ian and Lucy locked in a lovers' embrace. Kevin could not believe his eyes.
Chris was shocked to see Caleb, who wanted him to give him the vampire serum. When Chris said that it and his notes had been destroyed. Caleb offered his blood. Chris, seeing that Caleb really wanted it, tried negotiating. Caleb made a deal with Chris -- if he made the serum, his life would be spared.
Lucy took Christina to the couch. She took a picture of her to prove she was real. When she left the room, Christina turned into Livvie. Livvie went outside then returned. When Lucy tried to show her Christina, Livvie feigned disbelief. Lucy was upset when the picture she had taken showed nothing. Livvie left, but Lucy followed and was shocked to see her and Caleb.
Kevin got drunk because he'd found out about Lucy and Ian. He went to see Eve. Ian, who had decided to tell Eve about his and Lucy's night together, entered just as Kevin kissed her.
