Upstairs at the Crane mansion, Theresa had just agreed to work with Ethan on the wedding in the mansion while Gwen was away. Theresa said, "Well, that's what Gwen wants, right?" Ethan said she was right, and suggested they coordinate her school schedule with his work schedule so they could maximize the time they had to work on the wedding. Theresa agreed they should make the most of time they had together. Ethan noticed Whitney standing in the doorway and told her about Theresa agreeing to work with him at the mansion, and Whitney said sarcastically, "Oh, how great is that?"
The phone rang, and Ethan went to answer it. He left the room to talk on the phone, and Whitney asked if Theresa was totally nuts. She said she had thought Theresa had agreed not to work with him. Theresa said it was Gwen's idea. Whitney said, "Yeah, but you're still in love with him. You have to work on this wedding at your house." Gwen walked in and said she couldn't believe what she had just heard.
Gwen asked if she had just heard correctly. Theresa asked what exactly Gwen had heard. Gwen asked if Theresa had promised that she was going to help Gwen plan the wedding when Gwen was gone. Theresa said she was. Gwen asked what Whitney had been saying again about Theresa working at home. Whitney said she was just concerned that Theresa was going to put her schoolwork on the backburner.
Theresa said that wouldn't happen and she would figure out a way to take care of everything. Gwen verified that it was all settled. Theresa said it was absolutely not a problem. Ethan walked in, and Gwen said she was very happy that Theresa was going to help with the wedding while Gwen was away. Ethan replied that would be sooner rather than later. He informed Gwen that her office had just called to inform her they had pushed up her schedule.
Gwen said she had already sent her things ahead, so all she had to do was get on a flight. Gwen said she was leaving Ethan in good hands. Gwen again thanked Theresa for all the work she had already done on the wedding. Ethan said, "So, is this it? All I get to say goodbye?" Gwen promised that when she got back, he would get a long and proper hello, and she kissed him.
Theresa turned away and looked upset. Whitney said Theresa couldn't keep putting herself through that kind of torture, and sooner or later, Ethan was going to figure out that Theresa's portfolio was for Theresa's and his wedding, not his and Gwen's. Gwen and Ethan stopped kissing, and Gwen said she had to get going and thanked Theresa again for helping out. Theresa said, "Sure, no problem." Gwen and Ethan left the room. Whitney said that moment marked the end of Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald.
At the spa, Grace told Sam he was too good to her. She asked what the occasion was. He said it was a "just because I love you" occasion. Grace walked away, and Sam said to himself, "I love you, Grace, and only you." Ivy appeared behind a curtain. She said, "Oh, no, Sam. You still love me. I know you do. And pretty soon, you will know it too."
Back at the spa, a spa worker named Shelly talked to Grace about what she wanted to have done at the spa. Grace told Shelley that her husband had set up the whole day for her, and Shelley said, "Oh, that's a good one. Don't let him get away." Grace said she was not letting Sam go anywhere. Shelley said to be careful because she knew about a woman named Maureen, and Maureen's husband had cheated on her, which had sent Maureen over the edge. Grace asked if she meant Maureen Allen. They talked about her, and Ivy was behind a curtain, eavesdropping, the whole time.
Grace said the woman who Maureen's husband had cheated with was just as awful as he was, and she asked what kind of woman would do something like that. Ivy smiled. Grace and Shelley continued to talk about Maureen, and Shelley agreed that both parties were guilty, and she said, "I say skin them both." Shelley walked away to get some nail polish, and she opened up the curtain as she left. Grace saw Ivy and called out Ivy's name. Ivy acted surprised to see Grace and said, "Oh, Grace, you're here?"
Ivy walked over and asked what Grace was doing there. Grace told Ivy about Sam sending her there for the day. Shelley asked if Mrs. Crane knew Maureen Allen. Ivy said no but asked if that was the same Maureen that Grace had run into at the hospital. Grace said it was and called it very upsetting. Ivy said the man was a swine. Shelley asked about the other woman. Ivy acted disgusted and said the thought of taking another woman's husband was… but she was unable to finish her thought.
Sam interrupted and said he was glad to hear Ivy was as offended at the thought of something like that happening as he was. Sam commented on how good Grace looked. Shelley said she was putting Grace's guy up for husband of the year. Sam said when a man had a perfect woman, it was easy to be a great husband. Sam said they had to go because they had dinner reservations.
Grace said goodbye to Ivy and said she hoped to see her soon. Ivy said she would and smiled. Sam got a worried look on his face, and he and Grace left. Sam verified that Grace hadn't told Ivy where they were going to dinner that night. She said she had not, and asked why he was concerned. Sam said there was no reason, and they left.
Ivy asked another Spa worker, Inga, if Grace had told her where Chief Bennett was taking her to dinner. Inga said she thought they were going to the Seascape. She had heard Grace mention something about the best restaurant in Harmony. Ivy said, "Oh, you know what? I changed my mind. I think I am going to go out tonight."
Ivy said, "Let's do something with my hair." Shelley asked what Ivy was thinking. Ivy asked for something younger and sexier -- something that would make a man remember what she had looked like around 20 years earlier. Shelley said Ivy's husband was going to be one happy camper that night. Ivy asked who Shelley was talking about. Shelley said Mr. Crane. Ivy said, "Oh, yes."
Luis sat at the kitchen table, looking upset. He remembered when Sheridan had slapped him at the youth center, and he still couldn't figure out why she had done it. He asked what he had done to set Sheridan off like that. He kept going over it, over and over. It was just crazy.
Pilar walked in as Luis worked on some papers. Pilar noticed that the papers were about Martin, and she asked if he was reopening the case. He said no; he was closing the case on papa's imposter. He wanted to bury the file and never think about it again. Pilar said that had been such a horrible night that she still had nightmares about it. Luis said he had thought it was papa too. He said he didn't know if he could have gotten over the guilt of letting his father die to save Sheridan.
Pilar said Luis had done the right thing. He asked, "But what if it had been him? I would have let my own father die to save someone who is practically a stranger to me." Pilar said that because maybe to him, she hadn't been a stranger and suggested maybe it could be because, deep down in his heart, she meant more to him than his own father. Luis just shook his head.
Luis left the room to get something for the file, and after he left, Whitney and Theresa walked in. Pilar asked what was wrong. Pilar asked if it was Ethan. She told Theresa not to worry because Theresa would get over him. She said Theresa just had to be strong and ask for God's help if she needed to. Luis walked back in and greeted Theresa and Whitney. Pilar said she had an idea. She suggested Luis use the gift certificate that she had won at the church raffle and take Whitney and Theresa to the Seascape. Luis agreed.
Theresa and Whitney left to get ready. Pilar said she hoped the dinner took Luis' mind off of Sheridan. Luis said he was just glad the girls were excited about going. In the living room, Whitney asked if Theresa knew what the best part about the night was. Theresa guessed it was all the free food. Whitney called her silly and said it would give Theresa a chance to get her mind off of Ethan. She said if Theresa were really lucky, she might meet some really cute guy at the Seascape and forget all about Ethan. Theresa smiled slightly as if to say she didn't think that would happen.
In Julian's office, Julian was still talking to Alistair on the speakerphone. Julian was drinking again. He said his father was overreacting. Alistair slammed down his paper and said, "Don't you dare tell me what I am doing!" He lifted up his paper, and he had squished a fly.
Alistair continued to tell Julian how careless he had been to take photos of Eve Russell. Julian said the photos were destroyed. Alistair said he didn't believe in destroyed. Julian told him about Orville and how the photographs had gotten destroyed. Alistair took the dead fly and fed it to his tarantula in an aquarium. Julian again stated there was no way those pictures had survived being burned down in Orville's apartment.
Alistair again told Julian what would happen if those pictures ever surfaced. Julian said they wouldn't. Alistair said if they did, Julian was finished. That would be the end of Julian in the Crane family, and Alistair wouldn't allow Julian to ruin the Crane empire. Julian said it was all academic. The pictures were kaput.
Alistair and Julian talked about how much time it had taken to break up Luis and Sheridan. Julian said it wasn't his fault. He asked if he had had anything to do with them getting together. Alistair laughed and said that was the one thing that Julian was not responsible for. Julian said that was unfair. Alistair said what was unfair was him always having to clean up Julian's messes. He said that was all over.
Julian said there would be no more trouble from him. Unlike Sheridan, who had risked disaster by associating with Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald. Sheridan appeared in the doorway. Sheridan asked what Julian was saying about her and Luis. She asked what Julian and Alistair had been talking about, specifically wondering what they had said about her and Luis. Julian said, "Father and I were just relieved that you were able to finally see Luis for who he really is."
Sheridan admitted she had been wrong about Luis, and she said again that if she hadn't heard Luis with her own ears, she could never have believed he would say the things that he had. Julian flashed back to when he had paid the Luis imposter for the job, and the imposter had ripped off the Luis "mask." Then he said he was glad she had overheard the phone conversation Luis had had.
Sheridan said she had just gone there to tell Julian that she was leaving for Europe the next day, and she asked Alistair sarcastically if he had heard her. He said, "Yes, dear." Julian and Alistair said it was good she was going because she had always seemed more at home there. Sheridan asked, "Will I be seeing you there?" Alistair said, "Heavens knows I would love to spend time with you, but..."
Sheridan said, "You're busy. I can't remember a time when you weren't busy, Father," and she turned and walked toward the door. He said he was sorry, it was just a -- Sheridan left before he finished -- meeting he couldn't postpone. Julian cut Alistair off and said to save it. Alistair told Julian to make sure nothing changed Sheridan's mind. Julian said it would get done. Alistair said, "Don't say that. Every time you do, something goes wrong."
Julian said, "Trust me. Tomorrow night, our Sheridan will be dining at Tour d'Argent." Alistair advised Julian to stay on top of the Eve situation and to make sure the photos were destroyed.
The bird sat on a table in Simone's room. T.C. asked Eve to help him try to open the puzzle box because it was driving him nuts. T.C. walked into the room from the hallway, and just as Eve was about to walk in, she got beeped. She said it was the hospital, and she would be right back.
T.C. and Eve talked about the romantic evening they would have that night, and she left. T.C. went back to trying to open the bird. The bottom of the bird cracked open, and he said, "So, what do we have here?" Just as he was about to see, Eve called him from downstairs. He said, "Yeah, honey" and walked into the hallway after putting the bird back on Simone's bed. Eve said she was sorry, but she was needed at the hospital.
Eve said she and T.C. were still going to have that romantic evening, and he could pick her up as soon as he was ready. He told the bird it had a reprieve, and he would have to see whatever was in it later because he had a date with a beautiful woman. He said he would get together with the bird later, and he set the bird back on the table.
Just as Sheridan was leaving the house, Ethan walked down the stairs and said, "Sheridan, you're here. I have to talk to you." Sheridan said she couldn't because she had to leave. Ethan said Sheridan couldn't leave and had to stay in Harmony. She said he never gave up. He said Harmony was her home, not Paris. She said they had been over the same ground many times, and he said he still didn't understand. She informed him that she did, and that was all that mattered.
Ethan said he would miss Sheridan and wondered what he was going to do without his favorite aunt. Sheridan asked when Gwen was leaving. He said she should be getting on the plane at that moment. Sheridan said the next couple months were going to be hard with her traveling so much, and he said he had a lot of things to do. He also said he had to finish planning the wedding, and Gwen had arraigned for Theresa to work with him. Sheridan said that at least one of them had good luck with a Lopez-Fitzgerald.
Ethan asked if Luis was still on Sheridan's mind. He suggested that maybe she should go talk to him before she left. She said she didn't want to speak to him ever again. She didn't even want to be in the same room with him. Just then, Ivy walked in through the door. Ivy called herself lucky because she wouldn't have to call either one of them. She walked into the living room and called for Julian. He said, "You called, light of my life?"
Ivy announced that she wanted the whole family to get dressed and go have dinner at the Seascape restaurant. She said she thought they should give Sheridan the proper sendoff. Julian questioned why she wanted to go to the Seascape. Ivy replied that they couldn't exactly send her off without a proper goodbye. Ethan said, "Mother, but the Seascape? I'm not so sure Sheridan would want to go there. That's where she almost fell through the ceiling and died." Sheridan said it was okay and that she would love to go.
Julian asked to be excused, and he took Ivy away. He said he was not really up for going to dinner because he had other things to take care of. Ivy smiled and said that unless he wanted Sheridan to know that he had hired an imposter to break up Sheridan and Luis, he had better put on his best toothpaste grin and be a charming host. He said, "Well since you put it that way," and he smiled. They walked back over to Ethan and Sheridan. Ivy said, "Let's go."
Sheridan said she had packed all her dresses, but she was sure she could find something. Ethan said he'd go change, and they both left the room. Julian said he knew Ivy was up to something, and he was going to find out what. He said he knew there was a reason she wanted to go there that night, and it had nothing to do with Sheridan. She said there was a very good reason, and he would never find out what it was. She instructed Julian to go change for dinner. He left. Ivy smiled to herself.
Ivy was in her closet, looking for the perfect dress. She said, "Here it is," and she said, "This will be an evening you will remember for the rest of your life, Sam."
Sam and Grace walked into the Seascape. He had a tux on, and Grace wore a black dress. Sam said to himself that it was one night Ivy couldn't ruin, and they went to sit at their table. Sam kissed Grace, and they sat down. Grace said it had been a perfect day. She asked what could be more romantic. Then the waiters walked over with two vases of red roses. Grace asked if they were for her, and he said with all of his love.
Grace said Shelley had been right. Sam was the most wonderful husband of the year --and of the millennium. He said she was the only woman for him. Theresa and Whitney walked into the Seascape. Theresa wore a pink dress, and Whitney wore a gray dress. Theresa remembered the last time they had been there, when their dates had gotten very drunk, and Ethan had needed to take her home. Whitney said, "Don't even start."
Luis walked in. The maître d' showed Whitney and Theresa to their table. Luis said he had to take care of something first. It had to do with the Martin imposter case, so he could close the file. He walked away. Theresa and Whitney were at their table. Whitney said, "You know what? Four guys noticed you on your way over to the table." Theresa said she hadn't noticed. Whitney said to start. It was just what she needed. Whitney said she bet Theresa would meet someone there that night who would sweep her off her feet, and Ethan would be nothing but a distant memory.
Theresa said she could never forget about Ethan. Whitney said she had to try, and the first step was being somewhere he wasn't. Ethan and Sheridan walked into the restaurant. Grace and Sam toasted each other, and Eve and T.C. walked over to their table. T.C. said, "Now here is a happy couple." They said hello to each other. Sam said he had taken Grace there to show her that she was the only woman for him, and Eve said, "Well, I guess we're all here with who we are supposed to be with."
Ivy and Julian walked into the Seascape and met up with Ethan and Sheridan. Ethan told Ivy that their table would be ready in two minutes, and Julian said it was unbelievable that the Cranes had to actually wait for a table. Ivy said it would be worth it, because that night would be unforgettable. Sheridan had a flashback of when Martin had kidnapped her and Luis had saved her as the Martin imposter fell through the roof. Ethan said, "Sheridan, if you'd rather not stay, just say so." She said no because Ivy wanted to spend the evening there.
Ethan said to Sheridan again that maybe she should talk to Luis, and she again said no, insisting it was over. Ethan said he had ulterior motives. He said if she could get past "this thing with Luis," maybe she could stay in Harmony. She insisted she had made up her mind. He said he would miss her. She said she would miss him, too, and then she said she had to go outside for a minute because she needed some air. He understood and said he would meet her at the table.
Sheridan had another flashback of standing on the roof with Luis just after the Martin imposter had fallen through the roof. She left. Ethan told Julian that she would be back in a minute. Julian looked in the restaurant and saw Sam, Grace, Eve, and T.C. Ethan said he was going to go call Gwen and see if she had gotten in all right.
Ethan walked into the dinning area, and he saw Whitney and Theresa. He greeted them. Ethan said he hadn't known they would be going there. Whitney said she couldn't believe Theresa and Ethan kept running into each other. Ethan said she was right, and he guessed they just couldn't seem to keep away from each other. Theresa smiled. He said it was very odd that they kept running into each other. Theresa said it was serendipity. He said, "Yeah, like a happy accident."
Theresa asked if Ethan was there alone. He said no and said he was with Sheridan and his mother and father. Theresa asked when Sheridan was leaving Harmony, and he said the next day. He said he would miss her terribly. Theresa said, "I know some people who will miss her too." Ethan excused himself, saying he had to go call Gwen and see if she had gotten in all right. Theresa said, "Yeah, Gwen." Ethan turned to walk away.
Ethan returned and asked if Theresa would save a dance for him for later. She said sure. He said that was good because he had really enjoyed the one they'd had the last time they had been there. She said she had too. He left. Whitney sighed in disgust. She said it was unbelievable that he would be there the same time Theresa was. Theresa said it was serendipity. Whitney said she had never heard Theresa use that word before. Theresa said it was in a new book she had been reading.
Whitney asked if Theresa even knew what the word meant. She said yes; like Ethan had said, it meant a happy accident. Whitney said, "Yes, an accident, a fluke. Don't read anything more into it than that." Whitney said she knew exactly what Theresa was thinking -- it was fate. Theresa said she knew Whitney hated that word, but the fact was they had gone there to find some guy to take Theresa's mind off Ethan, but he had shown up. Theresa said, "I'm going to call it what it is: fate. Capital F-A-T-E, fate," and she smiled.
Julian and Ivy continued looking at the Bennett/Russell table, and they both said they'd be right back, and they left. Eve commented on how funny it was that every time they went to do something, they ran into Sam and Grace. Sam said, "Well, great minds think alike." Eve got beeped. She said it was the hospital, and Grace tried to dial on her cell phone and said the battery was dead, so Eve left to use a pay phone, and Grace went with her.
T.C. and Sam talked about how glad they were that Eve hadn't told Grace about Sam and Ivy, and Sam told T.C. about Maureen and what bad timing that was with their predicament. T.C. said he knew when he thought about what Chad had said about Julian and his wife, he felt like he wanted to rip Julian's heart out. He left to find Eve.
Eve was using the pay phone, and someone slipped up from behind her and touched her on the neck. She smiled, thinking it was T.C. It was Julian, and he started kissing her. He said, "I want you right here, right now." She said, "Julian!" Sam couldn't find Grace, and he went to the coat closet to look for Grace's jacket. Ivy walked up behind him, and he tried to get away from her. She grabbed him, and they both fell into a coat rack and landed on the floor, with Ivy on top of him. Ivy smiled.
Grace walked around the corner, looking for Sam. Sheridan was on the roof by the skylight that the fake Martin had fallen through. It had been fixed, and she thought back to when the imposter had fallen through. Then she turned around, and Luis was behind her. He said, "I guess we both have some unfinished business." She agreed.
Luis said it was better for Sheridan to finish alone, and he started to leave. She said, "Luis, wait. No." He asked why. She said there was something she needed to tell him before she left for Paris.
