Everyone panics when they find a puddle of blood and cannot find Charity. Simone and Whitney fear that Kay may have "done something" serious to Charity.

Luis keeps trying to call the number he traced. Luis keeps insisting that he heard Sheridan and Pilar insists that it was Antonio. Luis wants to know why they would be together. "Diana" has a feeling that she is close to something from her past, unaware who was on the other end of the cell phone.

Ethan appreciates how Theresa is trying to help but cannot condone Theresa trying to set up an abortion for her friend. Ethan tells Theresa that a pregnancy should pull a couple together not apart. He says that if she got pregnant before they were ready to afford a baby, they could work through it somehow. Theresa explains to Whitney how she got out of trouble by lying to Ethan about making an appointment for Lynn. Whitney once again pleads to Theresa to tell Ethan the truth. Theresa refuses and tells Whitney that Ethan must never know that she is pregnant. Theresa still plans on an abortion. Theresa gets ill when she sees lox and bagels put in front of her. Lynn announces that Theresa is sick over the sight of the food because she is pregnant. The others laugh it off. Lynn says that she is serious and would bet her life on it.

They come across the cave that the "iced" Charity has been hidden in and decide to check it out. Luis lights a candle for Sheridan and prays. He begs God on his knees for a miracle. As he does, the flame on "Diana's" candle grows bigger.
