Luis couldn't figure out what had Theresa on Cloud Nine. Theresa rambled on about how happy she was and how it had been the best day of her life. All the while, Pilar was listening from the kitchen. Pilar overheard Luis say that he and Sheridan had grown closer. Theresa started to tell Luis about her and Ethan being in love, when Pilar -- shaken up from thinking about what the Cranes would do to her children -- dropped the coffeepot she was holding. Luis and Theresa rushed to her, but Pilar acted as though she was worried about Luis and Sheridan growing closer. Luis went to get a bag ready to go back to Sheridan's, and Pilar warned Theresa not to tell Luis.
Theresa prepared a meal for Luis. Luis took the opportunity to assure his mother that everything would be okay if he and Sheridan reconciled their differences. Luis started to go out of his car to put up his bag, when Theresa walked toward him from the backyard. Luis told her to take it easy, since she had just had the accident. Theresa told him that the reason she was so happy was because she had fallen in love with a man, and the man loved her back. Luis hugged her. Then he asked the man's name as Theresa smiled nervously.

Chad turned off the music; he and Whitney both thought back to deals they had made with their friends. Chad walked back over to her. "There is something I have to tell you," they both said in unison.
Whitney and Chad were on the verge of admitting their feelings to one another, but Kay and Simone unwittingly interrupted them. Kay noted the romantic mood and purposely broke up their moment. Kay continued to make Chad think Simone had an eating disorder. Kay warned Chad not to tell Simone he didn't really love her, or it might drive her over the edge. Later, Kay lied to Whitney when she said Chad had recently gotten a girl pregnant and was turning his back on her. Whitney was stunned.
On the phone with Gwen, Ethan was put on the spot when she asked him to assure her mother he still wanted to get married. An uncomfortable Ethan deflected and asked to speak with Gwen alone and in person. Gwen told Ethan they could talk the next day. Meanwhile, Alistair told Julian to make sure Ethan and Gwen's wedding went off without a hitch, since the merger of the two families was so important for Crane Industries. Julian informed his father he had sent Gwen some Crane family heirlooms, which should reassure Rebecca about the wedding.
Theresa prepared to tell Luis she was in love with Ethan Crane. She mentioned the guy she liked had money, prompting Luis to go off about the Cranes. A flustered Theresa defended Ethan.

Luis angrily reached the conclusion he could never have a relationship with Sheridan. A miserable Theresa decided to keep her relationship with Ethan a secret, but Luis still wanted to know the name of her guy. Meanwhile, Sheridan confided to Ethan that she didn't know what kind of man Luis really was. Even though she was positive she had heard him say those things on the wharf, Sheridan couldn't help but be drawn to him.
After believing Kay's lie about Chad getting a girl pregnant, Whitney gave Chad the cold shoulder. Whitney related the story to TC, but left out Chad's name. Kay feared Whitney and Chad would realize she had lied when she saw them talking. Kay separated the couple and told Whitney the girl Chad had impregnated had miscarried and left town. Later, Chad told Eve he had recovered enough to move back to his own place. Eve admitted she no longer saw Chad as a bad influence on her daughters. Simone was disappointed to learn Chad was leaving.
Sheridan told Luis she had gotten her first good night of sleep in years since it appeared she hadn't killed anyone. Luis and Sheridan grew closer when she revealed she had dreamed about him.
