A look at what was happening the week of November 1, 1999
Sheridan did a lot of covering up for the Lopez-Fitzgerald family. First, Sheridan covered up for Luis so he wouldn't get fired from the police force and second for Theresa so Luis wouldn't find out that she'd really been going against his will and working for the Cranes. The Halloween dance went well for Miguel and Charity. They danced together the entire night, and Charity wasn't afraid of Miguel anymore. Kay, on the other hand, got an unpleasant surprise at the dance when she found out that she was dancing with Reese the entire night and had ended up kissing him instead of Miguel. Charity got a flashback from her past, and Kay was determined to keep her as far away from Miguel as possible. Gwen was still upset that so many coincidences kept occurring between Theresa and Ethan.
