Luis and Dottie frantically tried to find Sheridan. Luis needed to tell her that he was wrong, he should have trusted her, Marty might be her son, and Dottie needed to tell her something important about Marty. Luis headed to the cottage, where he discovered that all of Sheridan's things were gone. He thought she might already have gone to the airport. At the airport, Sheridan bought a ticket to Paris and thought that if only Luis had believed her about Marty, it would have changed everything.
Beth told her mother that she was going to get Alistair to give her and Marty money so they could move to a nice house in a nice neighborhood far away from Mrs. Wallace. Mrs. Wallace pointed out that for Beth to get all that money all of a sudden would look suspicious, so Beth decided to have Alistair make it look like she had won the lottery.
After Whitney faltered onstage, Liz tried to make Chad and Fox leave the Blue Note, but both of them wanted to stay and help. Fox and Chad got into another argument about Whitney and her baby while Liz talked to Whitney. Liz called Eve and T.C. and told them that Whitney needed them at the Blue Note. Meanwhile, Whitney got back onstage and started singing again. When she finished, she went to the bar and ordered a double while Chad and Fox looked on, worried.
In Las Vegas, Fancy and Ned were in the hotel room when rigor mortis started setting in on the dead body, who turned out to be the man who had tried to rape Fancy. Ned said that was not good; Fancy could be a prime suspect in his murder. Fancy pointed out that Ned would be a suspect, too, because he had fought with the man in the casino. They started trying to wipe their fingerprints off everything in the room.
Fancy started cleaning off the gun when she accidentally fired it and almost shot Ned. Ned fell and hit his head on a cabinet, but he was okay. They started picking up the money, and Ned took over wiping off the gun then someone started opening the door.
Alistair, Katherine, and Martin entered the Crane mausoleum. Alistair gave Katherine a chance to leave before she learned the truth, but she was determined to know what the secret of the gazebo was, and Alistair agreed to show her. He opened a door in the crypt, and Katherine and Martin followed him into a dark room. Martin tried again to convince Katherine to leave, but she wouldn't listen to him. She said she had to find out the truth if it was the last thing she did.
Alistair called them over to the coffin he was standing next to, and Katherine convinced Martin to help Alistair open it. Martin told her it was worse than she could possibly imagine and said, "God forgive me," before helping Alistair open the coffin. Alistair said that everything before that moment and everything after that moment would change forever. Katherine looked inside the coffin and screamed.

At the Crane estate, Martin, Alistair, and Katherine were in the secret chamber of the Crane family crypt. She held a lit torch while the men moved the heavy lid off of the coffin. Katherine screamed as a desiccated body of a woman with long blonde hair was revealed. She asked if that was who was buried under the gazebo.
Katherine kept begging them to tell her who it was and what had happened. Martin refused to tell her because he said it would sicken her. Alistair, on the other hand, taunted her with bits of information, alluding to the woman being someone she had known and loved.
In Las Vegas, Ned and Fancy were cleaning up the money and deciding what to do when the room's guest inserted his key in the door. By the time he entered, the dastardly duo was under the bed. The man who belonged to the room started making himself at home, loosening his clothing, flopping onto the bed, and letting loose the gas from his Mexican dinner. He noticed that the body of the man he'd shot was in a different position, but before he could do much about it, the maid arrived to clean up all the dirty linens Ned and Fancy had strewn about.
The man pushed the body under the bed before the maid could see it, much to Fancy's chagrin. The killer noticed that the body had been moved again and fired three silenced shots under the bed, but while the man and maid weren't looking, Ned and Fancy had managed to slip out from under the bed and into the dirty linen cart. The maid complained as she pushed the heavy cart down the hall, and when she went into the next room, the renegades climbed out of the towels. The killer noticed that his briefcase full of money was missing. Fancy had grabbed it, and as she and Ned discussed the stupidity of taking it, he went after them. Ned pushed the linen cart at him, and the guy tumbled in headfirst.
At the Blue Note, Whitney continued to drink at the bar, causing Liz great consternation. Chad commented to Valerie that Whitney's drinking was a cry for help. He started to get up, but Valerie held him back, reminding him that Whitney didn't want to talk to him. Meanwhile, Carla stroked Fox's leg and asked him to let her help him forget Whitney. He removed her hand and gave her the cold shoulder.
Julian and Eve arrived in answer to Liz's phone call for help. Liz whined about Whitney's boozing ways, and Eve was angry at Liz for hiring Whitney and putting her in harm's way. Liz defended her decision to help Whitney out with a job and said she'd tried to convince Whitney not to turn out like Eve. Eve slapped Liz just as T.C. showed up.
T.C. accused Eve of passing her "drunken, whorin' easy" to their daughter. Julian defended Eve, and Liz told them that she had called Eve to help her future daughter. Ivy showed up at the bar and, with surprise, asked Whitney what she was doing there. Whitney told her about the singing job, and then Ivy told her she should slow down on the drinks. Fox noticed the two of them together and decided to referee.
Chad told Valerie that Fox and his mother were ganging up on Whitney so he was going to rescue her. Fox asked his mother what she was doing there, and Chad asked Whitney if she was okay. She said she'd be fine if they'd just leave her alone. Fox agreed with Chad that the way she was acting was freaking them both out. Whitney got up to get ready for her next set, and Fox accused Ivy of upsetting her.
Ivy agreed that she'd addressed the drinking. Ivy told him she was glad that Whitney had given up Fox's baby for adoption, since it was better that he not be raised by a drunk. Eve took exception to that, and Ivy said she was just trying to help. She asked Chad when she could visit her grandson, and Chad said she wasn't his grandmother anymore. Chad said he'd call his lawyer.
Ivy appealed to Eve as the "other" grandmother. Eve said that Chad had every legal right to decide who could see Miles. Whitney started singing her "Remember" song while Ivy and Eve continued to argue about Miles. Eve accidentally burst out, "He's not your grandson!" Fox walked up and asked what she wasn't telling them.
At the Wallace house, Beth made a point of telling Marty that she was his mommy and Luis was his daddy, and soon the three of them would be living happily ever after. Then she said they'd drape Grandma's grave with diapers. Beth decided to look for a new house to buy with the money she was going to ask Alistair to give her as his darling daughter, especially since he had the hots for her. Edna was disgusted by that picture and scoffed that Alistair would give Beth nothing. Beth thought she'd get hundreds of millions of dollars from Alistair and then make it look like she'd won the lottery.
Beth told her mother that she'd make sure her mother never went hungry because she was going to buy her cases and cases of cat food. Edna declared that she wanted cases of gin. Beth said she might even hire human help for her mother, and Edna rued her loss of Precious. Beth went into a fantasy of her living at the Crane mansion -- Alistair having sold it to her furnished -- where she wore a sexy evening dress and Luis and Marty wore tuxes. Her mother was outside the mansion, in the dream, whining to Beth that her new nurse had run off with all of her cat food. Beth told her to switch to dog food, or better yet -- be dog food.
Then in the dream, Beth locked her mother out and went to a control box with brass tags that read "killer bees," "hit man," and "attack dogs," which she pressed, and then snarling dogs went after Edna. Luis and Marty used the helicopter she had bought in her dream to go to Boston for a game in their tuxes. Luis declared his love for her and her money, since Sheridan was gone. Beth emerged from her sappy dream, almost drooling. Edna laughed at her, saying that it was "if" Alistair gave her anything, and Beth said that he owed her for having to grow up poor.
Beth continued to make plans for herself, Marty, and Luis, and Edna worried about getting left out. Beth said that she'd take care of her mother, but Edna would have to stay there because she and Luis needed privacy at the mansion to make siblings for Marty. Edna cried out for her angels. Beth went off into another reverie about life in the rich lane. Beth was looking forward to Sheridan being out of their lives.
Beth started looking through the real estate ads and despaired that all the ads were for two bedroom dumps instead of mansions. Edna tried to convince her that she was counting chickens before they hatched. Beth had been engaged to Luis twice already and still hadn't gotten married. Beth assured Edna that nobody would find out that she wasn't Marty's mother.
At the airport, Sheridan waited for her flight and despaired at all the people she would leave behind. Dottie continued to call Sheridan's phones, leaving messages about the DNA test. Luis drove around town, looking for her, resorting finally to putting his police light on top of his car to race to the airport. Sheridan got tired of sitting and wandered out of the waiting area.
While Sheridan was gone, Luis blew in, flashed his badge, and tried to get passenger manifest information about Sheridan from the airline clerk. She refused him, since Sheridan wasn't a criminal, but told him a woman was in the waiting area. As he was looking, she returned, saw him, and tried to duck out of the way. He caught up to her, hugged her, and begged her not to leave.
Sheridan told Luis that it wasn't enough to love each other anymore. It would be better for them both if they were apart than fighting every day. Her flight was called, and as Sheridan got ready to board, Luis remembered that Dottie had called. He admitted that he hadn't taken a message because he had been too busy looking for her. The news stopped Sheridan in her tracks, and she decided that she had to call Dottie immediately.

With the help of her bowl, Tabitha heard Sheridan's message from Dottie saying that Dottie had the DNA test results. At the airport, Sheridan thought that Dottie might have found a mistake in the other results, and that could be the reason she had called. She could tell that Luis didn't believe that, and Luis thought that if that were the case then Dottie would have said something when he had talked to her. Sheridan said he was probably right and then said she had to leave.
Luis tried to stop Sheridan again, but it was no use. Luis watched the plane take off and thought it was really over for him and Sheridan, but Sheridan had never gotten on the plane. She said she couldn't leave without talking to Dottie. While Tabitha listened from her bowl, Sheridan called Dottie and was told that Dottie had the "quite exciting" test results right in front of her. Sheridan asked if Marty was really her son.
Katherine begged Alistair to tell her who the body in the coffin was. Alistair said he was surprised she didn't know. Martin told Alistair to spit it out, and Alistair told Katherine that she had known the person quite well and that the woman had been a great beauty. He said that they didn't have to look at her face; all Katherine needed to see in order to identify her was her hand. He lifted up the corpse's hand and showed Katherine her ring.
When Katherine saw the ring, she gasped and shrieked that it couldn't be. Alistair asked her if she remembered the last time she had seen that ring. Katherine turned to Martin and said that he had known, all that time, and she asked how he had never said anything. Alistair told Katherine to look at her, the woman who had been buried under the gazebo for all those years.
Katherine begged Martin to tell her it wasn't true, and she started panicking. Alistair grabbed her and told her to calm down and look at the woman's face. He said that was the woman Sheridan had called "Mother" and told her to look at her sister Rachel. Katherine screamed, "No!" and collapsed.
Whitney sang as Chad and Fox watched. By the bar, Eve told Ivy that Ivy wasn't Miles's grandmother. Fox overheard that, went to the bar, and got Whitney. He and Whitney went back to where Julian, Eve, and Ivy were, and Fox asked how that could be, since Fox was Miles's biological father. Eve said it was past time that they knew the truth, but she hesitated before telling them and decided to say instead that Ivy had been a horrible mother to all of her children, and that was why she couldn't be a real grandmother to Miles.
Fox defended his mother and said that at least Ivy, unlike Julian, was trying to make up for being a bad parent by helping him get his son back. He and Ivy went to "talk this over." Eve told Whitney that she could tell how much pain Whitney was in. Eve said Whitney could tell the truth and get her baby back, but Whitney told Eve to leave her alone and walked to the bar.
Julian approached Fox at the bar and said he knew the pain Fox was in. Fox pointed out that Julian had been supporting Chad all along and said that Julian had always been a worthless father. Fox said that he would be there for his son, but he didn't expect Julian to understand because he had never been there for Fox. Later, Fox told Ivy that he would take Miles back and make Chad pay. Ivy said she would do whatever it took to help him.
A drunken Whitney got on stage and started singing again, and Eve said it was hard to watch Whitney follow in Eve's path. She said if something didn't change, Whitney would end up on drugs.
Theresa went to the Blue Note to forget about Ethan and Gwen taking Jane. She ordered a double martini and talked to the bartender about her problems. She said she was really mad, and if she saw Ethan, she didn't know what she'd do. Right then, Ethan walked in and went to Chad's table. He said he had gotten Chad's message. Chad asked him how he could get back at Fox for trying to sabotage his files without starting a never-ending war between them.
Ethan explained to Chad that it had been a very hard night for him, and Chad said they could talk later. Ethan saw Theresa at the bar. Ivy walked over to Ethan and expressed how happy she was that he and Gwen had Jane, but Ethan said he felt guilty for it. Ivy said he needed to cut Theresa out of his heart, that Theresa had deserved to lose her child, and people did move on. She said that Theresa had destroyed all of Ivy's dreams for him by sending his paternity papers to the tabloid.
At the bar, Theresa told the bartender that she had realized alcohol wasn't the solution to her problems and was getting ready to leave when Ethan approached her. She saw him and slapped him hard across the face. He told her to go ahead and do it again if it helped her because he deserved it. She screamed that she hated him, and she shoved him. She started to sob, and Ethan held her and said he was "so sorry."
Theresa yelled that Gwen had Jane because Ethan had helped her, and that really hurt. He apologized again, and Theresa asked why he was sorry. She told him not to start, because he had won -- he had gotten everything, and Theresa had lost it all. Ethan said he didn't have the woman he loved. He said he should be with Theresa, Jane, and Little Ethan.

In Las Vegas, while the killer continued to search for Ned and Fancy, they sat in her suite and discussed what would happen to them if the mobster looked for them and his money. She asked him where home was, and he insisted that they each not know where the other was going. She wanted to spend some of the money, but Ned told her that the casinos marked the bills, and if she spent it, she'd get arrested. They decided that they'd go to the airport, then split up and go their separate ways. They each wanted to go home to get far enough away to hide.
Ned sneaked up to the room he'd been squatting in and retrieved his stuff. When he got back, Fancy had packed dozens of suitcases and her little dog, Preston. Ned told her that they needed to be inconspicuous, but Fancy didn't understand the meaning of the phrase "blend in." They made it out to the taxi stand, and there were some nuns collecting donations. Ned made her give all the stolen money to them, and when she tried to get it back, the nuns decided to close up shop and deposit their take.
The mobster and his cohort walked out front, trying to find them. Fancy really thought the money belonged to her. She and Ned said goodbye and took separate taxis to the airport. The goons found nothing and decided to keep looking, or their boss would have them strung up. Ned boarded a plane and sat in coach. While he was looking the other direction, Fancy boarded the same flight and went to first class.
At the Blue Note, Whitney sang more sad songs while Chad with Valerie and Fox with Carla listened in. Fox told Carla that he had to destroy Chad. Whitney started singing a love song, and Valerie scoffed at Whitney still loving Chad. He said he knew she still loved him. Carla asked Fox if he still loved Whitney, and he said he couldn't possibly love her, since she had given away their son. Ethan told Theresa that he really wasn't with the woman that he loved.
Theresa jabbered on about how Ethan could move in and make a life with them. Ethan stopped her to say that he would stay with Gwen because he wasn't going to break his wedding vows. He said they wanted the same thing -- to be together -- but it couldn't be. Theresa cried as he said they needed Jane to know she had been conceived in love. Theresa admitted that he hadn't been aware that it was she when they had made love, and Ethan set her straight -- he had known it was her.
Theresa tried to convince Ethan he couldn't have known it was her, and he explained that whenever she touched him, he felt electricity. He said that the same feelings he'd had when they'd made love on the beach before their disrupted wedding were the same he had felt when she had tried to disguise herself that night, and all he had been able to think had been that he could steal one more night with her. Theresa smiled triumphantly and then was disgusted with him because they both knew they belonged together, and he refused to leave Gwen. Whitney approached and asked what was wrong. Theresa got emotional and left quickly.
After Theresa left, Whitney told Ethan to let her go because he'd hurt Theresa enough. He said he didn't want to hurt her, and Whitney asked him why he had sued her and taken her baby away. Theresa had lost everything. She asked Ethan what had happened, and he told her that he'd told Theresa he still loved her because he had thought it would be better to be honest. Whitney said it was being in hell for a person to know someone loved them and they loved that person back, but they couldn't be together.
Whitney admitted to him that she still loved Chad. Ethan started to understand and then realized that Chad was standing there, listening to them. Ethan decided it was a good time to go home to Gwen and Jane. Chad told Whitney it was okay that she still loved him and that he had known it already. He told her that their strong love couldn't just go away.
Whitney said she had "so much" to tell Chad, and he caressed her face as Fox approached and denounced him for being a freak for loving his sister. Fox asked Whitney if that was why she had given their baby away. He told her to go play house with her half-brother; he just wanted them to give him his son back because he didn't want him near their incest party. Whitney blurted out that he already was. Fox asked her what she was hiding, and Chad locked eyes with her.
Theresa stopped at the waterfront to pray to God about how unfair it was to lose the only man she loved. As she looked up, Ethan was there. She told him that every time she tried to run away from him, he showed up. Ethan apologized, and Theresa told him it was fate's sign. He said that it wasn't, and they kissed in a light embrace.
At the Wallace house, Beth made nursing home arrangements for Edna, who quaked with fear. Beth was sure that Sheridan was gone, and she planned what she would do with the millions that she'd get from Alistair, namely buy a huge estate to share with Luis and Marty. Edna said there'd be room at a mansion for her, and Beth said if her new estate was half the size of Harmony, there wouldn't be room for her mother. She said that her mother would never live in her nice mansion, and if she didn't play by Beth's rules, she'd end up in the rat-infested state-run home for the indigent.
Edna imagined huge rats hovering over her in a dirty room. Edna despaired and told Beth that she'd tell the police if "Bethie" crossed her. Beth decided that her only course of action was to kill her mother. Beth chased Edna, saying that she had changed her last diaper. Edna prayed to the angels to save her. Edna begged for mercy, and Beth started pushing a pillow over her face.
At Tabitha's house, she kept an eye on Sheridan and Luis. At the airport, while Luis looked on skeptically, Sheridan talked to Dottie about the DNA test results. Sheridan was overcome with emotion, and Luis assumed that the test had proven yet again that Beth was Marty's mother. He started to tell her that he had been sure it would happen, and she asked him to talk to Dottie. He took the phone and started to ream Dottie out for setting Sheridan up for disappointment again.
Dottie cleared things up when she told Luis she was just sorry that she hadn't run the full gamut of tests the first time. She explained that Sheridan was definitely Marty's mother. Sheridan told him that he had the proof that he needed. When he asked for more explanation, Dottie started to tell him, but Tabitha put a spell on the phone, creating static so they couldn't hear. Luis actually smiled at Sheridan without that "I'm feeling sorry for you because you're crazy" look in his eyes.
Sheridan realized how right she had been that Beth had kidnapped her and taken Marty. He asked her about Beth being pregnant and about Charlie. Sheridan decided that they had to go get Marty away from Beth before she did something crazy. Tabitha became irate that the story might have a happy ending and wondered what she could do.
Luis apologized for being wrong about Beth and said he'd go with her. Sheridan said she wanted Marty right then. Tabitha had an evil idea of something to do for which Sheridan would never be able to forgive Luis.
