The Skating Pond. Gwen and Ethan are on a bench, she is telling Ethan that she can't wait until midnight when he proposes to her again.

Whitney tells her that she doesn't think that Luis will agree with that. They spot Luis and Sheridan on the ice. Theresa says that how can Luis object to her feelings about Ethan when he seems to have feelings for Sheridan. She says that maybe they can have a double wedding. Hank and Beth are looking at Luis and Sheridan and wonder where things stand with them. Gwen tells Ethan that she doesn't understand why Theresa won't turn her ring around. She wants to go over to Theresa, but Ethan stops her. Gwen thinks that the reason that Ethan doesn't want her to go up to Theresa is because Theresa's ring probably can't compare to the ring that he is going to give to her. Luis and Sheridan finally join Beth and Hank. Luis apologizes for being gone so long and offers to go get Beth some hot chocolate. He runs into Theresa and Whitney. He says that he still can't believe that Theresa is wearing that fake ring. Theresa asks him about Sheridan. He says that nothing is going on between him and Sheridan.

She tells him that there can never be anything more between them because Julian was right. Ethan can't believe that Sheridan is taking advice from Julian. She said that with her track record, she doesn't want to be hurt and she doesn't want to end up hurting Luis. He tells her that Gwen is expecting a ring , but he doesn't have it. He tells her that Theresa is wearing the ring. Sheridan asks if Gwen was right all along about his feelings for Theresa. He tells her that he asked Theresa to go along with him to pick out the ring because he wanted to see what it looked like on a woman's hand. He said that the ring just wouldn't come off. Sheridan thinks that maybe Theresa doesn't want the ring to come off. Ethan tells her that they tried everything and he doesn't know what to do. He said that Gwen had finally gotten over her insecurities about Theresa and that she was expecting him to propose at midnight. Hank and Gwen return. Gwen asks them to leave because she and Ethan needed to be alone. She tells Ethan that she loves him and that she would be the best wife. She asks him to marry her. He accepts.

Miguel goes under the water and nobody can seem to find him. Charity is led away by Eve and Sheridan but becomes hysterical when she asks where Miguel is and realizes he's under the ice. Kay says she'll never forgive herself if anything happens to Miguel--what has she done? Simone tells her that she has to stop trying to keep Charity and Miguel apart and Kay nods her head. When Chad comments on how long Miguel has been under the ice, Luis tries to get to his brother but is held back. Timmy says his heart is breaking for poor Charity and Tabby says there'll be a lot more grieving, but it'll be better once Charity comes over to the dark side. Charity gets closer to the ice and prays for Miguel to be all right, but she is taken away from the ice. Ethan and Gwen console Theresa--Ethan takes her hand, inadvertently covering up the engagement ring. Theresa vows that if Miguel comes out all right, she'll stay out of Gwen and Ethan's way unless Ethan wants her. Luis is about to break off some ice and strand himself when Miguel pops up, coughing.

Gwen notices how nervous Sheridan is about Luis and Sheridan says if she pursues a relationship with Luis it can only end in heartache. Gwen says that doesn't sound like Sheridan at all and Sheridan says she's been talking to Julian. Gwen tells Sheridan to listen to her heart, not her brother. Then Gwen says that Ethan has been acting strangely about her engagement ring and Sheridan tells her not to worry about it. Gwen says her ring seems like a small problem compared to Miguel's predicament. Everyone looks on, worried, as Theresa heads out on the ladder. Miguel tells her to go back, but she presses on. Gwen tells Ethan that he's really worried about Theresa, isn't he? She says she isn't upset about it, she's worries about Theresa too. Ethan says they both have to survive. Miguel goes under again and Kay wants to save him but he comes back to the surface and calls to Charity again.

Her and Luis say at the same time "There's something I need to tell..." but then Hank and Beth come to help close off the area. Beth says she's exhausted and Sheridan comments again on the love in Luis's family and the love in Harmony. Beth tells her a Crane could never really be accepted by the locals and the only match she has in Harmony would be Hank because Hank doesn't always stay in town, yet he has good family values. Meanwhile Hank and Luis are talking about the love between Charity and Miguel and how they'd like to find love like that. Hank says Luis may already have found it.

Julian comes out of the covers wearing the maid hat and says he doesn't know how Ivy survived without a man. The maid says maybe Ivy does have someone. Julian says if Ivy was ever with another man she'd lose everything. She asks what if Julian found out Ivy had a secret lover? Wouldn't Ethan be angry if he threw Ivy out? Julian says Ethan would be more angry that Ivy was unfaithful and then says he can't understand why Ethan only wants to sleep with one woman Gwen, instead of having a fling with Theresa as well.

She tells him about her promise to God and he says she can never go back on a promise like that. She says she doesn't want to give Ethan up and Miguel says he was never Theresa's to give. He asks if Theresa would be happy knowing that she got Ethan because she tricked him? Theresa says why is it that something is always stopping Ethan and Gwen from getting married? She says it's because deep down Ethan loves her. Miguel says then she should put Ethan to the test, give him the ring back and see what happens. He says if she keeps going on with her fantasies, she'll get hurt the most. He says he'd never ever deceive Charity like that.
Ethan wakes Gwen up and she says she's really happy all their difficulties are past. They kiss and she asks what's wrong?

Ethan comes out and asks Theresa if the ring came off her finger. She says she's sorry, but no. He says Gwen is going to leave him and this time it's for good. He says Gwen could never see the ring on Theresa's finger because Gwen wanted to be the only one to wear it. He can't get a different one because Gwen has memorized the picture of the old one, and a duplicate would take months to make. He says they have to try one last time to get the ring off or he and Gwen are through. He starts to pull it off but says he doesn't want to hurt her finger and it won't come off anyway. He apologizes for putting her in this situation and she says it's okay. He says at least he hasn't ruined her life and she says maybe Gwen will come around. He says they've always been together and he can't imagine life without her. Theresa says maybe it's because he's never dated anyone else. She mentions fate and he says all he knows is he's always loved Gwen and he still does. Gwen comes down and tells Theresa her and Ethan are broken up. She says Ethan led her on but he must not have been ready for the commitment and she's sorry she ever doubted Theresa. Gwen says it was Ethan all along, not Theresa, who was keeping them apart.
