As Joshua agrees that Jack WAS right about the VH1 TV interview with the band, Reese arrives and happily announces that her VH1 interview was highly successful. But Reese is surprised when Jack appears to be less than thrilled about Reese's success and later reminds the songstress that VH1 is STILL mainly interested in 'Stephen Clay', rather than the band WITHOUT 'Stephen!' Reese angrily accuses Jack of throwing cold water on her moment of triumph and storms out of the club. Jack runs after Reese. Meanwhile, when Casey sadly reports to Ricky that she feels like a failure as a Guardian Angel because the forces of evil appear to have gained the upper hand in Port Charles while Casey stands helplessly by, Ricky consoles Casey by assuring the angel that she has been a great help to many of the people in town who have experienced trouble in their lives. Ricky urges Casey to realize that she can NOT save the entire world all by herself, overnight. Ricky suggests that Casey take one day off to enjoy some of the things that regular people enjoy, so that the angel can recharge her heavenly batteries. Casey reluctantly agrees. Ricky went to Joshua for permission to take the rest of the day off. But, as Joshua agrees to the time off, Joshua congratulates Ricky for his impending success in bringing Casey down. Ricky bitterly warns Joshua that it might take longer than Joshua expects to get the angel yanked back upstairs, and Joshua agrees that Ricky can have all the time it takes to be successful.

Caleb again explains that Alison just disappeared into thin air when Caleb went outside to check on a suspicious noise at the entrance. Rafe finds Caleb's story hard to believe, but Caleb points out that, since Rafe is the one holding the antidote, it would NOT be in Caleb's best interests to have Rafe angry with Caleb. As Rafe and Caleb argue, Livvie flashes back to her meeting with Joshua. When Livvie declares that she KNOWS that Caleb had NOTHING to do with Alison being gone, Rafe suddenly suspects Livvie and angrily demands that Livvie tell Rafe whether or not Livvie turned Alison over to Joshua. As Rafe demands answers, Livvie finally admits that she went to Joshua to try to get the antidote and alibis that Joshua tricked Livvie into admitting that Alison was really alive. Livvie angrily points out that she would have NEVER gone to Joshua to plead for the antidote if Rafe had given her the antidote in the beginning, the way Rafe had promised that he would! Rafe suddenly decides that he MUST get to Alison right away, but Caleb argues that if Rafe would only give the antidote to Livvie so Livvie could restore Caleb's powers, Caleb would be able to go with Rafe and, between the two of them, they could make short work of Joshua AND Joshua's entire Army of Undead Underlings! But Rafe refuses to have anything more to do with any kind of help from Caleb! Caleb warns Rafe that Rafe is setting himself up for certain defeat by trying to take Joshua on alone.
