Ethan was still trying to figure out why Theresa was cheating on him while Gwen was secretly trying to rekindle their relationship. Ethan also received word from Gwen that he was still married to her due to a technicality; Jonathan was in the picture, too. Theresa defied Pilar and went to Mexico to see if she could reason with Juanita. Miguel tried to convince Kay and Tabitha to give up witchcraft. Kay agreed, but Tabitha wasn't having it. Jessica surprised Sam and showed up at the house with her newborn son, but Spike decided to rain on her parade by insisting that he wanted to be a part of his son's life and also give him at least one of his names. The killer was revealed to be Viki, and she wanted to end what she started-killing Alistair; however, Alistair was onto her and wanted to use her as the murdering machine she was. Viki told Alistair that she was killing Esme's men because both her parents died and she feared losing Esme, since Esme was the only person she had. Her next victim was Ethan. Alistair wanted him dead and Viki wanted him dead simply because he was getting too close to Esme. Eve desperately tried to tell Julian the truth about Valerie/Vincent, but Vincent intended to keep her quiet. Vincent drugged Eve and went after Julian with the intention of killing him.

Alistair ordered Viki to kill Ethan, and she took him up on his offer. Pretty visited Alistair in the hospital to write him off, but he managed to manipulate Pretty into working for him again.

Fancy finally got to go out with Luis, and she won over Marty, which left Sheridan steaming. Miguel continued to threaten to expose Tabitha if she did not stop practicing witchcraft, and Tabitha was hell-bent on finding the letter Miguel wrote so that she could put Miguel in his place. Theresa went to Mexico to find Juanita in order to settle a long-time feud between Juanita and Pilar. After arriving in Mexico, Theresa realized that Juanita must be dangerous, because each time she called someone to get information on Juanita, the person hung up. Juanita ordered her assassin to kill Theresa. Pilar urged Theresa to return to Harmony because she was in danger. She agreed, but had no passport because she destroyed it, fearing that Juanita might discover her. Juanita's assassin was hunting down Theresa to kill her, and Theresa bumped into Juanita by accident, not knowing it was her.

Sheridan dumped the control device in the water, and Fancy coughed up the device that Alistair had planted in her brain. Theresa escaped the DEA agent's clutches but ran into Juanita at the docks. Theresa hid in a container, and Juanita shot at the container quite a few times. It was not clear if Theresa escaped the container prior to it being shot at. Gwen convinced Ethan to move on with her, and he agreed within ten minutes of Theresa's memorial service.

Tabitha refused to help save the people at the church that Vincent and Viki poisoned. Tabitha claimed that the people of Harmony tried to kill her in the past, so she did not want to help them.
