At Tabitha's house, Kay and Tabitha worked through the instructions to the three-part spell to rid Fox of the Mermaid curse and keep Siren from snaring Miguel. In the first part they had Siren tied to one side of a large heart and convinced Fox that he needed to wear a funny cupid costume and shoot an arrow into the heart for a calendar photo. He shot the arrow and they were able to toss the arrow with Siren's blood on it into the fire as part of the spell. The second part was even sillier and they got Endora to lock Siren outside so they could concentrate. They needed Fox to stand under a ladder, hop on one foot, holding a lit candle, eating an oyster, making funny faces that made a child (Endora) laugh. They manipulated him into it and finished part two just as Siren fell through the chimney into the fireplace. She was angry that they'd gotten that far and was sure they could never accomplish part three.
At the Police Department, Luis decided to do a background check on Chris Boothe and after he put in the request, he took Fancy to practice shooting her gun at the firing range.

While he was helping her, Fancy fantasized about getting even closer and kissing him. When they were done, Luis was disappointed to find out that the background check database was off line and he'd have to wait for the information he needed.
At Sheridan's cottage, Chris and Sheridan arrived after finding out that she could work at Crane and that he had an interview to work in accounting. He regretted being forced into working there by Spike and felt like he'd gotten out from under Alistair's thumb only to be beset by Spike and his greedy requests. He got a call on his cell phone and told Sheridan it was from another company to which he'd applied, so she left the room to call Valerie so she could schedule an interview with Chris and Theresa. He answered the call and wanted to know why the caller was contacting him now that Alistair was dead. The caller let him know that Luis was doing a background check and when Chris begged the person to intervene or his whole life with Sheridan would collapse. As they spoke either the caller disabled the database or just found out it was off line. Sheridan returned to the room and let him know that Theresa wouldn't be able to meet with him, but that Valerie had assured her that the job was his. Sheridan was ecstatic that they'd both be doing something worthwhile and be able to have lunch with James in the daycare downstairs.

He told her that he just couldn't walk away after all the years he'd loved her. She asked what was different, what had changed. He told her about Pilar's about face in the hospital and how she had pled with him to leave Gwen to be with Theresa and the children. He asked Theresa what he was supposed to think when the woman he thought of as a second mom told him to abandon his marriage vows to be with the woman. He said he thought he had to be with Gwen out of duty, but he'd never stopped loving her. Theresa demanded that he leave and ranted at him to let her move on. He finally left and Theresa sunk into her desk sobbing. Jared knocked lightly on the door as he walked in and she screamed for him to go away without looking up. He went to her and asked her why she'd been crying. He held her and they kissed. Chad started to walk in to ask her something, and stepped back out. Ethan came back and wanted to talk to her, but Chad told him that Theresa and Jared were busy. Ethan looked in and was not only disappointed but dismayed because he was sure there was something not right with "that guy."
