Ethan is fussing over Theresa, and Gwen makes her presence known. Jared rushes to Theresa's side and relieves Ethan. Gwen can't bear Ethan's clinginess to Theresa, so she walks out of the room. She tells Eve that she feels that she should cut her losses and run since Ethan can't seem to put Theresa behind him.

Ethan offers to take her home, but Theresa tells him that she wants Jared to take her home. Gwen tells Ethan that he is the one that cannot let Theresa go.

As the episode opens, Julian and Eve are in his office at Crane Industries, in each other's arms, kissing passionately, but Eve pulls away. Julian persists. Eve was right to come to him, he says, their love means everything, Valerie means nothing, he insists. He persists in kissing her. Eve's resistance crumbles. She and Julian start undressing each other and fall to the floor. Eve murmurs, "This is so wrong." Theresa is in her bedroom recuperating and visiting with Whitney, who is concerned because she fears that Chad is having an affair. Outside, Jared overhears a conversation between Chad and his mistress. Despite Chad's denial, Jared urges caution, warning Chad that he could lose everything. In the police station rookie room, Paloma and Fancy are dressed in sweats and conversing while working out. Fancy, who has been angrily punching a bag takes off her pink boxing gloves and tells Paloma to "Stop it." Paloma insists that if Fancy wants Luis, she has to have an open mind. Maybe, speculates Paloma, Fancy's visit to Sheridan had the opposite effect to the one that Fancy intended and now Sheridan wants Luis back. Not going to happen, says Fancy. At Pilar's home, Luis and Sheridan are embracing. Luis is convinced that Sheridan has come back to him, and does all the talking. Before Sheridan can interrupt Luis to tell him why she has come, Luis hugs her again. He looks very happy, but Sheridan seems uncomfortable.
In Theresa's bedroom, Theresa advises Whitney to ask Chad what is going on. Whitney says she can't do that. Theresa says, "Secrets can ruin a relationship." Whitney says she does not know what to think, and besides Theresa has plenty to think about herself. Theresa says that they are best friends and that she will always have time for Whitney. Theresa tells Whitney that her problems with Jared and Ethan are over. She has decided to do the right thing and be with Jared, who is free to be with her. Chad is defensive, but Jared tells him he is concerned because they are friends. Chad lets down and confesses to Jared that he does not want to lose Whitney, because she and their son Miles are Chad's whole life. "Then don't" advises Jared. "Show her how much you love her." Chad says he should have been honest all along, but he did not think Whitney could handle it. Jared tells a grim Chad that he has the choice of keeping his secret and learning to live with it, or telling Whitney the truth and watching their relationship break apart. Fancy questions Paloma's loyalty to her. Paloma insists that she still wants to see Luis and Fancy together, but she loves the truth. She points out to Fancy that they are both stubborn and if someone gives Paloma a lecture on what not to do, she has an immediate urge to run out and do the proscribed activity. Fancy agrees that she feels that way, too. What if Sheridan is as stubborn as we are, asks Paloma. Fancy is immediately subdued as she sees the possibility that her actions in warning Sheridan off may instead have sent her into Luis' arms. Maybe not, Paloma muses as she goes on to tell Fancy about the bond that once existed between Sheridan and Luis. Fancy does not want to hear it and she asks Paloma how she can compete with that. Fancy refuses to let the situation get her down. She is convinced that Sheridan will stay with Chris. She has an answer for every objection that Paloma makes. Meanwhile, Luis starts talking about wedding plans and living arrangements with Sheridan. He is euphoric and does not allow Sheridan to tell him why she is there. As Luis continues to express his impassioned vision of their future together, Sheridan is caught up in his dream. When he asks her if she can imagine their life together, she sees herself with Luis and a houseful of children. They are living in Pilar's house and are very happy. "Yes," she tells him. "I can imagine it."
Luis is ecstatic as he looks for a newspaper so that he and Sheridan can start house hunting. He recounts all the trials that they have been through to make it to this point. Sheridan smiles wryly as she fingers her wedding band and thinks to herself, "It can't happen, Luis." Julian and Eve bask in the afterglow of lovemaking. Julian wants to forget the last month of unhappiness and start again. Eve concurs. Julian suggests that they can still take the Mediterranean cruise. "Yes," murmurs Eve. "As soon as I know TC is OK." Julian does not get immediately angry, but he does not understand why TC comes first with Eve. She insists she loves Julian. He tells her that if she does, the he must come first. Theresa tells Whitney that they both deserve to be with people they love. Whitney continues to express her fear that Chad is cheating on her. When she asks Theresa what to do, she notices that Theresa has fallen asleep. At first she thinks it is because Theresa is tired, then she realizes that Theresa has a fever and has passed out.
As they get dressed, Eve tells Julian not to give her ultimatums. She says that she can love Julian and still care about TC. She does not want to choose between them. Julian is adamant that Eve's obsession with TC is entirely to blame for the problems in the relationship. Julian says that Eve has used him to pull her out of the wreckage of her dull middle class life. He reminds her that he stood by her when her past was revealed, unlike TC, who divorced her. Julian insists that Eve is using TC's illness as an excuse to push him away. "How pathetic is that?" he says to Eve, who appears dismayed. Fancy and Paloma lift weights. Fancy wants to know details of the conversation between Luis, his mother, Pilar, and Paloma, his sister that took place earlier. Paloma tells Fancy that the advised Luis to give up on Sheridan and look to Fancy. Paloma says that her mother wants grandchildren, so if Fancy and Luis get married, Fancy had better be ready to "pop a few buns out of the oven." Fancy blushes and imagines that she and Luis are standing on the threshold of their home, watching their children playing outdoors. She and Luis are older, but very much in love. He tells her that the happiest day of his life was the day he dropped Sheridan. They kiss. Fancy comes back down to earth and wonders whether or not Pilar will be satisfied with a dozen kids from her and Luis. Sheridan tells Luis to stop looking for the paper because they have to talk. "Am I getting carried away?" Inquires Luis, but continues to talk about houses. "It's not the house," says Sheridan. "It's about Chris. I have a husband at home and you know what I have to do," says Sheridan. "Of course" says an agreeable Luis, but they each misunderstand the other. Sheridan thinks Luis understands that she is staying with Chris and Luis thinks she is talking about divorcing Chris. As Jared looks on, Chad books a motel room and says he has to leave. Jared tells him to do what he has to do, and assures Chad that he will not do anything to hurt Whitney. At that moment, Whitney comes out and says that she thinks something is wrong with Theresa. They all run into Theresa's room. Jared feels her forehead and realizes that Theresa has a very high fever. Before they can decide what to do, Theresa opens her eyes, but doe not remember what happened. Jared wants to call Pilar, but Theresa insists that she just needs some aspirin. Whitney corners Chad. She overheard Chad and Jared's conversation and she wants to know about the "motel."
"What motel?" asks Chad. Whitney says she heard them talking and she want to know what is going on. Chad covers quickly and says that he and Jared were talking about the benefits of working for Crane and how they never have to stay in a seedy motel again. Chad explanation is smooth, so Whitney accepts his explanation, but remains skeptical. Jared interrupts and asks Whiney to get the ice pack he left in the bathroom. Chad leaves to meet his mistress, Valerie. Jared thinks out loud that there will be hell to pay if Chad does not handle the situation he is in. Paloma reminisces about her first meeting with Luis in Mexico and how she has come to love him, even though they got off to a rocky start. Fancy and Paloma continue to discuss Luis and his stubborn behavior. Paloma tells Fancy how difficult it was to convince Luis to let go of Sheridan. Fancy gets upset because Paloma's retelling of the encounter with Luis has her thinking that his mother and sister are forcing Luis into a relationship with her. Luis continues to think that Sheridan has come back to him. Sheridan finally interrupts and tells him that she is staying with Chris and that anything that exists between Luis and her is over.
Julian and Eve's conversation becomes more heated. Julian insists that TC is deliberately coming between them. Julian tells Eve that she is not the only doctor capable of treating TC. "It's not the same as family," says Eve. "He's not family," Julian insists. Then, Julian tells Eve that she is everything he has ever wanted. She says, "I'm not perfection. Julian responds with, "I think I know that." Eve wants to know what he means. Julian begins to make himself a drink, and tells Eve that maybe they should just stop where they are because he is wasting his time. Eve still want to know what he meant. He tells her he does not think she can take it. She still wants to know what he is thinking. "Give it your best shot," challenges Eve, as Julian swallows a sip from his drink. Fancy is appalled to know that Paloma and her mother were begging Luis to go out with her. "I'm Fancy Crane," she says, "Men all over the world want to go out with me, and if Luis doesn't want me, then I don't want him either." Fancy say angrily Sheridan tells Luis that she is sorry, that she got caught up in his dream. Luis tells her that she still loves him. Sheridan tells Luis that it does not matter. She has to do the right thing for the child she has at home. She tells Luis that he must move on. "We had a chance, but it's gone," a sad Sheridan says to a disbelieving Luis.
Julian tells Eve that he used to think she was perfection, but now he knows that she is not. Julian reminds Eve that she also has a past. He tells her how easy it was to turn her into a tramp. He tells her that he used to think it was the drugs that turned her into a whore, but that the truth is that she is a whore at heart. Eve stares at Julian disbelievingly.
