TABITHA & TIMMY:
Timmy is on the phone and he is ordering ingredients for making his martimmy's. Tabitha is lying on the couch and she is in agony. She does not want her book to be published and they have to find a way to keep it from being published. Tabitha hangs up the phone on Timmy. Timmy reminds Tabitha that she is broke, and has no money. Having her book published is the answer to all their problems. Tabitha tells Timmy to get his head out of the clouds. Their main problem at the moment is keeping a close eye on Charity and Miguel. They will be toast if Charity and Miguel should make love. Tabitha has a strange feeling that something bad is happening at the Bennett house. She has to find out what is going on over there. Timmy has the check the publisher left them, and he wants to deposit it in the bank. Once again, Tabitha says no because if her book is published, they will be in deep trouble.

This is the smell of evil and it is coming from the Bennett house...
AT THE BENNETT HOUSE:
Everybody is wondering what is going on with Sam, TC, Luis and Ethan. Simone and Whitney are at the hospital with Chad and it is reported that he is doing well. Miguel tells Charity he is happy they are together. Kay is watching this and Hecuba asks her why is she torturing herself? Hecuba tells Kay Miguel will be hers once she helps her destroy Charity. Miguel asks Charity if she is cold and if she would like him to build up the fire. She says she is not cold and is sure it is evil that is making her cold. Kay tells Hecuba she wants her soul back now. Hecuba reminds her of the deal they made. Kay does not care about the deal, she only wants her soul back. Kay will not get her soul until she does the things that Hecuba wants. Charity enters the kitchen where Kay is and tells Kay she knows exactly what is going on and why she does not feel like celebrating Christmas. Kay's eyes almost jump out of her head until Charity tells her it is because she misses Noah so much. Grace, Pilar and Theresa return to the house and everybody is asking what is going on. They are all told that they have to trust that Sam, TC, Luis and Ethan know what they are doing. Tabitha is spying on them and wonders what they are talking about. She still smells the sulfur and Charity and Grace also have a bad feeling. Tabitha knows if both Charity and Grace sense Sam is in danger then Timmy and her are more than dead. Grace asks everyone to say a prayer for all the men. Hecuba tells Kay she can not pray with them, as she needs a soul in order to pray. Tabitha wonders why Kay is not praying and why the smell of sulfur is stronger. Tabitha has a plan and she is going to send Timmy to Kay's room to see what is going on. In her room, Hecuba tells Kay she has another errand for her to run. Kay says no and she grabs Hecuba's vile containing her soul and they start to fight over it. Tabitha is now in the house and she can not figure out how Eve Russell is involved with Sam and the men after Grace has told her what is happening. She hopes they will all be o.k. Theresa is telling Miguel the story of her and Ethan and how sure she was that Ethan was going to choose her before he was called away. Miguel tries to reassure Theresa. Theresa says she is praying for all the men and she told God she would give Ethan up if He only kept Ethan safe. Charity tells Theresa she does not have to make bargains with God. They all want the men to return alive. Hecuba grabs Kay and she zaps her to the ground. She has something for Kay to do and she has to do it if she wants her soul back. Timmy hears Kay's voice. He enters her room and he sees Hecuba. He wonders what the old witch is doing, and he remembers Tabitha telling him not to go near her. He feels Kay is truly in trouble. Jessica asks where her sister went and Charity is going to go check on her. Grace gives Tabitha, Pilar and Theresa a nice hot cup of tea. Tabitha wants to read Theresa's tea leaves to help pass the time away, but Pilar and Grace feel this goes against the teachings of the church. Theresa tells them it is all right as long as it is only done in fun. Tabitha sees interesting things in Theresa's cup. She sees Theresa crying as well as all of Harmony crying in the church. Timmy wonders what Hecuba is doing with Kay. Hecuba tells Kay is it important she tell no one what is going on. Charity comes to Kay's room. She finds Tabitha's doll outside the door and wonders what it is doing there. She picks him up. Charity can hear Kay talking and wonders whom she is talking to. Tabitha says she does not see a funeral in the tea leaves. Grace asks her about her friend Eve. Tabitha says she can not answer specific questions. Theresa wonders why everyone is in a church. Theresa is sure it is for her wedding. She asks Tabitha if that is what she sees. Tabitha tells her she will tell her as soon as things become clearer.

him believe he saw Hecuba. Timmy swears on a pitcher of martimmies that
Hecuba is there. Timmy says Hecuba makes Fluffy look like an angel to
him. Tabitha is sure Timmy must have fallen asleep, and dreamt he saw
Hecuba. She is not buying his story. Tabitha is telling Timmy about
reading Grace, Pilar and Theresa's tea leaves. She knows the ladies
would be soured for good if they knew exactly what their future held in
store for them. Timmy asks Tabitha to read her own tea leaves, if she
is not too scared. She agrees to read them, just for the heck of it.
She finds that every thing is just hunky dory when suddenly, Hecuba

house. Hecuba tells Tabitha she can live wherever she pleases. Hecuba

around. Tabitha vows she will stop Hecuba but Hecuba wants to know how
she is going to do that ... perhaps with her little Ken doll? An angry
Timmy replies that his name is Timmy. Hecuba declares herself the queen
of evil, and it will give her great pleasure to see Tabitha fall. Timmy
tells Tabitha her book will make her rich and famous. Hecuba grabs the

AT THE CRANE MANSION:
Julian is sitting on his bed, calling out for Rebecca to return so he can have more of her plumb pudding! Pilar walks by; thinking Rebecca is in Julian's room with him. Julian opens the door, thinking it is Rebecca and is embarrassed that it is only Pilar. Pilar wonders what on earth Rebecca is up to. Ivy is in the bathtub and she is daydreaming of Sam. He comes to her, and she tells Sam he is all she has ever wanted. Sam loved her once and Ivy wants him to love her again. Ivy keeps dreaming and wishes that her dream of Sam would come true. Little does Ivy know that Rebecca is in her bedroom, searching for something. Pilar enters Ivy's room and calls out for her. Rebecca hides. Pilar asks Ivy if she has seen Rebecca, as she is worried Rebecca is looking for and could find things that only Ivy and Pilar know about concerning Sam. Rebecca can hear the two women talking and she says she all ready knows Ivy's secret. Julian is now looking for Rebecca. He is boarded all alone in his bed. Ivy finds Rebecca in her room and demands to know what she is doing. Rebecca tells Ivy she is worried about her and wanted to know if she could do any thing to help. Ivy knows this is a pack of lies. Ivy also knows that Rebecca has slept with her husband. Rebecca finds it very strange that Ivy is not mad at her. Ivy explains if it wasn't Rebecca Julian slept with, it would have been one of the maids. Julian enters the bedroom wanting to know if any one wants to share a nightcap with him... Ivy finds Julian appalling since he is not grieving for Sheridan. Julian thinks it is horrid that he has buried his sister once, and is now going to have to turn around and bury her again. He has never in his life heard of anything so ridiculous as burying someone alive. Julian asks Rebecca if he can talk to her, and then two of them leave Ivy's bedroom. He asks Rebecca what she was doing in Ivy's bedroom. Rebecca tells him she was searching for something and when Julian asks if Ivy knows that they slept together Rebecca tells him yes. Julian is crushed that Ivy is not mad that Rebecca has slept with him. Rebecca tells him Ivy did not give a dam. Ivy is scared that Rebecca may have seen the picture of Sam and Ethan in her locket. Julian hands Rebecca a drink. Rebecca asks Julian what would he do if she gained her freedom from her husband and if she managed to get Ivy free of Julian? Julian answers that Rebecca would then become the next Mrs. Crane if she could accomplish that. Ivy tells Pilar that the locket has not been tampered with. Rebecca has not figured out how to open it. Pilar is very worried that Rebecca will not stop at anything to uncover Ivy's secret. When that happens, Ivy will loose every thing she has worked so hard for.
AT THE HOSPITAL:
Grace has found Sam and Hank. She asks who is responsible for burring Sheridan Crane alive? TC asks Eve how she is doing, and she tells him she is not doing very well. TC wants her to go home and get some sleep, but Eve can not sleep while Sheridan is in a coma. Eve is upset. She tells TC she has lost Chad. Eve thinks Roger and Pierre killed Chad. Chad hears Doctor Russell's voice and calls out to her. Eve is overwhelmed to find Chad alive. She runs to Chad, crying with joy. Whitney walks in and sees her mother hugging Chad and crying tears of joy. Luis, Theresa, Ethan and Gwen are waiting for news about Sheridan. A Doctor tells them that Sheridan has lapsed into a coma, and they need permission to keep Sheridan alive on a respirator. Grace is distressed to learn that Hank is the one who is responsible for what has happened to Sheridan. Sam rakes his brother over the coals. He tells Hank he is the same screw up he has always been, always looking for a score. This time, Hank even tried to con Sam on his own turf. Roger and Pierre had something on Hank, and they blackmailed him into killing Sheridan. Sam asks him what the hell is going on in that head of his? Hank admits to Grace that every thing Sam said is true. Eve thought Chad was dead. She thinks it is a miracle that he is still alive. Eve tells TC that Chad took a bullet for her. TC calls Chad a hero. The woman from the trauma unit tells Ethan that the issue has to be raised about Sheridan's wishes as she is in a severe coma. Luis tells everyone that Sheridan is going to live but the trauma worker says someone is going to have to make the decision for Sheridan. Ethan drew up a living will for Sheridan. It was Sheridan's wishes that should any thing ever happen to her, she did not want to be kept alive by machines. Luis grabs Ethan and tells him, Sheridan has to be kept alive and if it is by a machine then so be it. Sam tells Grace he was so sure Hank had changed. Risking Hank's life by putting his life in the hands of an innocent woman is unforgivable. Sam is not going to put up with his brother any more and tells Hank they are through. They are no longer brothers. Eve apologizes to Chad for all the things she thought of him in the past. She feels so badly for everything she has put Chad through. Chad tells Eve to put all of that behind them. Truly sorry, Eve is crying. She tells Chad she was afraid of him because she thought he was different, but Chad tells her they have a lot more in common than she thinks. Eve tells him she owes him her life. Chad asks her just to help him find out who his mother is. Eve tells him she will help him with that but she feels she owes him so much more. Luis does not want Ethan to let Sheridan die. He will do anything to keep her alive. He will fly in the best doctors from Europe if he has to, but he does not want Sheridan to die. Gwen yells at Luis to stop, as does Theresa. Ethan remembered Sheridan and him drawing up the living will. Sheridan did not want to put Ethan in any kind of circumstance where he would have to make critical decisions for her. The Doctor returns and both men ask her how Sheridan is doing. The Doctor tells them she does not have good news. Grace asks Sam to forgive Hank. Sam tells her he is not going to forgive him this time as he has done so many times in the past. Sam is not going to take any more chances with his former brother. Hank has tears in his eyes as he listens to Sam. Eve tells Chad she will treat him as an equal from now on. She also tells him her daughters are so lucky to have him in their lives. Eve feels he is a fine young man and she tells Whitney she was all wrong about Chad. If Whitney does not want to keep her distance from Chad, she will not object. The Doctor tells Ethan and Luis they are going to have to wait for the results of the MRI to see if Sheridan will be able to breath on her own. She will let them know, as necessary arrangements are going to have to be made. Ethan tells the trauma worker there is a copy of Sheridan's living will in the hospital. Sheridan's wishes were not to be kept alive by machines. Grace begs Sam not to disown his brother, but Sam tells Hank he is no longer allowed to go near his family or his children. Sam leaves to check in with police headquarters. Grace encourages Hank to go after Sam. A confused Ethan asks Gwen if it would be wrong to go against Sheridan's wishes. Ethan believes it is a Christmas miracle that Sheridan was really not killed. Gwen tells Ethan they will get through this rough time together. Theresa walks in while Ethan and Gwen are embracing. She tells them the Doctor has returned with the test results. Alone with Sheridan, Luis is telling her he wants to bring her back. He will do anything to bring her back here with him. He kisses her on the forehead. Hank tells Grace he has no right to ask Sam for his forgiveness. He wonders what would happen if some one would ever threaten the girls because of him. He is going to pack up all his things and leave Harmony. Whitney and Chad really appreciate what Eve said, and they will not let any thing stand in the way of their "friendship". Whitney tells Chad she always does what her mother asks. Chad is elated. The nurse enters, bringing Chad's jacket and tells him to get dressed. He is being realized.
