A shot rings out on the pier, and a woman in a raincoat falls. The shooter checks her pulse, and then calls Roger and Pierre to tell them that Sheridan is dead. A cop finds the body and phones it in.

At Tabitha's, she is looking through the Book of Spells to see if there was some way that she could appease the dark forces in her basement. Timmy comes in with his hair standing straight on top of his head, and Tabitha tells him that she she had had enough of the Don King look and she wanted him to do something with his hair. He tells her that he had tried to do something with it, but had no success. He gets very nervous and says that he had tried everything that he could he get his hair back to normal. He then told her that he was a nervous wreck and that his pulse was racing..
He then said that he couldn't feel a pulse and realizes that he doesn't have a heartbeat, either. He then decides that the reason that his hair wouldn't get back to normal was because he was really dead. He then faints. Tabitha tells him that he doesn't have a heartbeat or a brain because he was a doll. Tabitha said that her friends in the basement had plenty of reason to be upset with her because she failed to lure Charity to the dark side and she also failed to kill Grace more than 20 years ago. She said that everything that had happened to her was Grace's fault.

Chad and Whitney are at the Jazz Club. He tells her that his father was a racist who abandoned his mother just because she was black. He said that his mother wasn't much better because she just abandoned him period. Whitney tells him that maybe his mother thought that she was doing what was best for him. He said that if that were true, then she would have gone through a reputable agency. He said that she had given him to people whose only joy was getting high. Whitney said that she could never imagine a woman doing something like that to her own child. Chad is waiting to hear more information from Crystal.

TC and Eve are also at the club. Eve is very upset and tells TC that she can't keep everything inside of her any longer. She is hysterical. TC keeps telling her that he knows what she wants to say, but she tells him that he has no idea. Before she can say anything more, her phone rings. She tells him that she has to act as Medical Examiner and go to the wharf where a woman was shot to death. TC wants her to let someone else handle it, but she can't. He then joins Chad and Whitney. Chad tells him that Crystal is going to tell him about his parents. TC said that Crystal said that she had information that could destroy several lives..

Grace and Sam are at home in bed. Grace is very upset about Eve. Sam gets a phone call about the woman getting killed on the wharf and he leaves. Grace hears loud noises and becomes very worried about Tabitha and leaves to go check on her..

Gwen and Ethan are in bed kissing while listening to Theresa's special song. Ethan suddenly imagines that he is in bed with Theresa instead of with Gwen. He looks stunned and Gwen wonders what is wrong. Gwen says that she is sure that a lot of people probably think that she is a fool for leaving him before the wedding. She tells him that she trusts both him and Theresa and that she can't believe that she ever mistrusted her. After Gwen falls asleep, Ethan keeps saying to himself that he loves Gwen, not Theresa..

AT the Lopez-Fitzgerald house, Theresa and Luis are talking. Luis said that he suddenly had the feeling that someone had walked over the grave of someone that he loved. Theresa asks him if he thinks that it had anything to do with Sheridan. He dismisses the thought. Hank comes over and Theresa asks him about his travels. She said that the next time that he leaves, she may join him. Luis tells her that she wouldn't be joining Hank. Luis gets a phone call about a woman being shot dead on the wharf. Hank says that there was where he left Sheridan. He leaves with Luis. Theresa immediately gets on the phone and calls Ethan. She tells him that Sheridan may have been shot. He leaves and Theresa said that she would meet him there. Meanwhile on the pier, Eve gasps in shock at the corpsee. When Sam arrives, Eve tells him that they both know the corpsee. Sam says that they have to notify the woman's family. Theresa and Ethan arrive, but are not allowed to see the body. Ethan explains that it might be his Aunt Sheridan. He tells Theresa that he couldn't bear to lose Sheridan and they hug. Luis looks at the body and says, "Oh My God." Eve runs and hugs TC.

Chad is still at the the Cafe with Whitney waiting for Crystal to return. The Audience never sees the identity of the corpsee..

Chad gets very anxious waiting for Crystal and can't imagine what is taking her so long as she had plenty of time to go to her hotel and get the papers and come back to the club.
