Tabitha knows she has heard of the motel some where before but can not remember where. Tabitha is told she is going to have to store her doll before take off. Timmy talks to Tabitha and the flight attendant thinks she hears the doll talking. Tabitha tells the attendant if she wants to store Timmy, she can do it herself. After she puts Timmy in the overhead compartment, Timmy screams out for help. Thinking the screams are coming from couch, the attendant goes to check but returns. The attendant hears knocking on the overhead compartment and Tabitha tells her not to bother opening the compartment. She opens the door and Timmy flies out and lands in her arms. Timmy decides to have some fun and asks her if she wants some coffee, tea or Timmy! The attendant screams and drops Timmy on the floor. Tabitha tries to calm down the attendant. She is sure Tabitha's doll was coming on to her. She pinches Timmy and he screams. Another passenger explains to the attendant that Tabitha's doll is an expensive animatronics doll. The attendant apologizes to Timmy the doll and asks him if she can get him anything. He tells her he would like a martimmy. Tabitha tells Timmy to stop drawing attention to them. She is hoping Hecuba is focused on frying Charity and too busy to notice that they have left Harmony. The attendant brings Tabitha a drink and brings a glass for Timmy. He pulls his flask from his coat pocket and enjoys a martimmy. Tabitha cannot relax. She is worried about what will happen when her book comes out.

Theresa tells Ethan Sam is a wonderful person, and he should try to get along with him. Ivy tells Grace perhaps her baby will not be a son but a little girl. Grace informs Ivy of how Sam always dreamed of having a second son. Ivy tells Pilar Sam all ready does have a second son - Ethan! Ivy watches as Sam and Grace cuddle. TC tells Eve she no longer has to cover up the truth any more. He figures the mother of the dead baby was the young girl Ivy and Eve were talking about earlier. Perhaps she is one of the household staff. Eve is trying to help by saving Julian Crane's image. TC has no respect for that woman or any woman who would have anything to do with Julian Crane. She had a choice and could have backed away from the slime ball. Grace is having a wonderful time and is glad Sam brought her to the party. She thinks the baby kicked her all of a sudden.

The reporter who is waiting for Julian behind the closed library door is sure the information he is about to give Julian will also cause an explosion. TC says he has no respect for the woman who got involved with Julian Crane. She is a tramp and he certainly would not allow his daughters anywhere near someone like that! Eve panics and says maybe the woman was lonely and she made a mistake only out of the love that Julian had for the woman which were nothing but lies. Rebecca can not understand what is taking so long. She is sure Julian should know the news by now. She is going to go to the library to check to see what is taking so long.

Julian asks his father to give him a few minutes before he contacts Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald. He has to get rid of who ever is in his library. Alistair tells him to hurry.

He has to take extra special care of her because he loves her so much. He tells Grace she means everything to him. Ivy says her life would have been so different if she had married Sam. Miguel tells Theresa he loves Charity so much but he wonders at times how they will do in the long term. Charity feels things other people do not. He is scared she will not be in his life for long. She is too good for this world. Sheridan tells Luis she had no friends growing up. Her father would not allow her to play with any of the local children. The only thing she had left after her mother died to keep her company was her doll. One day she got a bit of dirt on it and Alistair ordered one of the servant's to throw it away. Luis is so sorry for the hurt her family caused her. Sheridan says if Alistair or Julian did not like something then they would get rid of it on her, no matter her emotional attachment to it.

The clock begins to strike midnight and Theresa wonders if she will loose everything like Cinderella. Julian tells Alistair he will get rid of who ever is in the library.

Sensing evil at hand, Charity balks at entering her bedroom despite Kay's efforts to get her cousin to "relax." A sobbing Sheridan admits to Luis how frightened she is that her father and her brother will somehow find a way to separate them. Stung by Sam's words about the mistakes teenagers make when looking for a mate, Ivy relates for Grace a sad story about young love gone awry. Watching Chad and Whitney twirl around the dance floor, Eve wonders again about the son she lost. Miguel tries to reassure his sister when Theresa worries that her Cinderella-like fantasy world will vanish at the stroke of midnight.

He asks Charity if she thinks Kay has a soul? Suddenly, Hecuba appears downstairs and the machine starts sucking her in! Hecuba yells out and asks Kay to save her. Kay says she will not save her. She is evil and the sooner they can get rid of her, the better!
Tabitha and Timmy are at the local bookstore. Timmy is excited, as the book is a smash. Tabitha is terrified, and is sure they will be turned into toast when the people of Harmony get a hold of the book. The big engagement party being held at the Crane mansion is being shown on the t.v. Tabitha is glad she is not at the party or in Harmony. She has a feeling so many lives will be changed tonight. Customers love Tabitha's book; HIDDEN PASSIONS. Timmy says he can feel the fire works every where. He reminds Tabitha that the last page of the book contains a spell. Anyone reading the book will forget all about the contents of it once they read it. Tabitha is worried that the spell won't work. She thinks a steak through the heart by Hecuba would be easier to take than what she would face at the hands of the residents of Harmony.

She can not figure out why the motel seems so familiar. Norma, the motel owner, is with her father and she asks him if he has seen a knife. She finds one in the couch. She tells her father the new guests at the motel seem very nice. Tabitha is angry with Timmy, as he has included everything in the book word per word from her original manuscript. Tabitha feels she has seen the motel before but she can not remember where. Norma is outside the room. She shows up with a knife in her hand.

Ethan tells his father he knows he is disappointed in his choice of a bride. He asks his father to toast him and Theresa, and he knows Julian will find it hard to do. Julian tells Ethan he is "flesh of my flesh and blood of my blood". Rebecca overhears Julian say this and she can not wait until Julian learns the truth about who Ethan's real father is.

Pilar hopes he does not tell her. Grace tells Sam she could not bear to be in the same room with a man like that. Gwen is pacing the hall. Rebecca enters the library and she tells the reporter to get his butt in the main foyer if he wants to talk to Julian. The reporter leaves to hear Julian's speech. Eve asks Alistair what he will do. He tells her she will play the tape over the mansion's speaker system so everyone at the party can hear Sheridan's confession. Julian tells everyone he is proud of his first born and he loves him very much. He proposes the toast to his son and his future wife.
