Gregory almost called security on Tiffany for being in Sean's room, but instead, he offered her a check for $10,000 to get out of Sean's life. She leaned close to Sean and tore up the check. Gregory threatened to get rid of her just like "I got rid of Caitlin's little boyfriend," he said. As he opened the door to usher Tiffany out, Caitlin walked in, overhearing what Gregory had just said. Caitlin confronted him, telling him he had let her down, "You will never be my hero again," she blasted him as Sean awakened. Sean asked for Tiffany, and Gregory ignored the request.
Rae told the Richards that all his signs were good. Olivia and Caitlin didn't see anything wrong with Sean seeing Tiffany. Gregory lost out, and Sean thanked Tiffany, as "everything's perfect," he said. Outside, Caitlin told Gregory he had ruined the good between her and Cole. Olivia walked up to Gregory, saying, "She found out, didn't she?"
Tiffany kept Sean company, describing what she pictured them doing once he was better. Olivia told Gregory everything would be fine between him and Caitlin. Caitlin informed Cole that she knew what had been going on behind her back. He nervously thought she knew about his trysts with Olivia.
Cole thanked Elaine for giving him the advice, and she attempted to talk with him about the mother he had never known. Cole told Elaine he only felt contempt for the woman who had given birth to him and that he never wanted to see her again. Elaine tried to explain that his mother might have loved him and that he should have an open heart. She wished him luck with Caitlin, biting her tongue about her being his mother. Elaine replayed her talk with Cole at the Waffle Shop as she stared at the picture of Armando Deschanel.
Michael officially asked Vanessa out on a date. Wei Li returned, seeing Rae and Casey in the midst of their kiss. Mark encouraged Meg to talk to Ben about what she had seen. Meg asked the group to offer Michael ideas on what would impress Vanessa. Wei Li, as it turned out, had rented Candlestick Park for Rae's 21st birthday.
Rae and Wei Li left for South Bay General to see Sean. Meg and Casey discussed relationships. Vanessa canceled on the date, as all had gone wrong for her that day. Virginia stopped by the Deep to see Michael, and they stepped outside to chat. Virginia thanked Michael for what he had done for Jimmy. She told him she understood if he had to move on, but she felt James needed him.
Virginia wanted Michael to continue being a part of their lives. They hugged each other as Vanessa watched. Casey threw out ideas about how to impress Rae to Meg. Meg encouraged him to compete with Wei Li by being himself. At the hospital, Wei Li got her a job offer at San Francisco's Surgery Center. He had a letter of recommendation from the head of surgery at San Francisco. Rae was amazed and told Wei Li she had to think about it.
Annie smilingly asked Ben if things were all right between him and Meg, while Tim asked the same of Meg at the Deep. Tim surmised that Meg was avoiding Ben. He told Meg his parents had had the picture he had taken with the Laker girl put in the Ludlow paper. She told Tim he hadn't changed. He was still a skirt-chasing man, but he explained that, if Ben wanted to get caught, he would invite a woman over when he was going to be with another woman.
Meg realized Ben would be stupid to do that. She arrived at Ben's, where Annie was cleaning her purse. "I know that Ben is not sleeping with you," Meg announced to Annie. She explained that it was too much of a coincidence and found the pills. Meg "offered" to show Ben the pills. Annie played it off that she had been in bed with Ben because he'd had nightmares, and she had been comforting him. Meg bought her excuse.
Ricardo went to the Deep to meet with Ben. Paula arrived, wondering what Ricardo was at the Deep for. She was persistent in her questioning, and Ricardo asked her to back off. "What are you hiding from me?" Paula asked Ricardo as Ben walked in. He asked Ben if the evidence against Eddie was in the briefcase full of the Deschanel jewels. Paula called somewhere, requesting that Elaine call her.
Ricardo got it out of Ben that Eddie had the jewels and had kidnapped Meg. Ricardo told Ben he needed hard evidence, while Paula recalled her talk with Elaine. Paula was vehement about the Douglas case being closed. "Annie's dead," she exclaimed to Ricardo. Tim chatted with Ben, telling him that Meg shouldn't be getting hurt. He added that he knew Annie was alive and didn't want Meg involved. Ricardo broke up their discussion when Ben grabbed Tim.
Caitlin told Cole she knew her dad had made him break up with her, much to Cole's relief. He explained to Caitlin the other woman had been around when he had been hurt, but he loved Caitlin. She agreed to leave Sunset Beach with Cole once Sean was better. Caitlin added that her mother had helped her with her relationship and covered for her the whole time. They discussed where they could possibly go when they left Sunset Beach. They shared a kiss while starting a fire, and Cole tried to discourage things from going further. Caitlin and Cole made love at the cave.
Vanessa decided to go out on the date with Michael after seeing him and Virginia hug. Michael canceled all the plans, as he thought Vanessa had canceled for sure. At dinner, the two were uncomfortable on their first date. Vanessa worried their relationship wouldn't work unless they were involved in a crisis.
Gregory and Olivia discussed his need for control and their children. Apparently, Gregory thought Cole had left town. He thought Cole was "out of sight, out of mind." Olivia told Gregory that Caitlin was just like him. She would stop at nothing to get what she wanted. He thought she should return to UCLA. Olivia offered to help him get Caitlin back.
