Paul tried to figure out how Kevin found out he had asked Lauren to the Valentine's Day dance. The only person he'd told was Michael. On a hunch, he called J.T. and told him he had a job for him. He then invited Lauren over and questioned her again about her conversation with Kevin. Lauren insisted that she hadn't told Kevin about the dance. Neither of them could figure out how Kevin knew. Lauren thought maybe he'd just made a lucky guess, but Paul said it was possible that there was some sort of connection with Michael Baldwin. He had J.T. working on it.
J.T. was trying to leave the loft when Colleen showed up. He told her that he was happy to see her, but he was just going out. When Colleen complained, J.T. reminded her that they had to get the goods on Kevin. They exchanged a little banter about their Valentine's Day plans, then J.T. went to check out Kevin for Paul.
At Crimson Lights, Kevin approached Lily and Sierra, who tried to run him off with rudeness. He reminded them that he had much better things to do now than waste his time on them. He'd see them later at the Valentine's Day dance, and he didn't want them to mess up his date. The girls were shocked when he admitted that he was going with Lauren Fenmore. After Kevin left, they decided Lauren must not be the person they thought. Colleen arrived and heard their side of the story, then put two and two together. It was possible that Lauren was helping Paul and J.T. set a trap for Kevin. But they were the ones who'd been damaged by him. They should be part of bringing him down. The girls agreed with her.
Sharon saw herself preparing a nice table for her family on Valentine's Day. She called up the stairs for them to come down and was interrupted by a knock on the door. She opened it to the threateningly empty gaze of a bloody Cameron Kirsten. As Sharon backed away, Cameron fell into the room. Sharon began to scream and woke up, realizing it was all a nightmare. Nick ran down the stairs at the sound of her screaming and tried to reassure her. His flight had been delayed by mechanical problems the night before, and by the time he got home, she was asleep on the couch. She'd looked so tired that he hadn't wanted to awaken her. Sharon evaded his questions, trying to determine if Nikki had told him anything. When Nick tried to get amorous, she told him that she wasn't feeling very attractive. Nick said he understood, but before he left for the office, he told her that he'd be talking to the police. When Sharon, startled, asked why, Nick said the search for Cameron was getting more intense.
Sharon went to Michael's apartment and told him about the day she'd had. Michael was appalled that she'd been seen by the same desk clerk when she was getting Cameron's body from behind the dumpster, stopped by a policeman in the wrong part of town, attacked by gang members who'd seen Cameron's corpse in her trunk, and been confronted by Grace at a bar. But he was baffled by the fact that the corpse had vanished. He warned her that this didn't let her off the hook. She was getting in deeper and deeper. Tired of what she called his lack of sympathy, Sharon left his apartment.
Unfortunately, as soon as Michael showered and prepared to face the day, Kevin showed up. They fought again about Kevin's obsession with Lauren Fenmore, which Kevin insisted was real love. Michael begged him to get help and forget Lauren. She was involved with Paul Williams. Kevin triumphantly told him that he was wrong. Lauren had agreed to go to the Valentine's Day dance with him. When Kevin left, Michael realized that Paul and Lauren were setting his brother up. Neither he nor Kevin knew that J.T. had been lurking outside his apartment and saw Kevin leave. J.T. immediately called Paul to tell him that Kevin had been to see Baldwin.
Katherine was frantic as she tried to find liquor, which Jill had apparently cleaned out of the house. She threw things out of drawers until she finally glanced at the phone book. Quickly calling a liquor store and ordering a case of their cheapest vodka in Jill's name, she was thwarted once again when she learned that they had a note telling them not to deliver to that address. As she slammed down the phone and raged about Jill, Arthur arrived. She let him in, and Arthur tried to figure out what was wrong. Katherine tried to downplay the mess, saying that she'd been looking for some old momentos. Arthur wondered why she hadn't told him that Jill was her daughter when she'd introduced them a few days before. Katherine jumped to the conclusion that Gina had told him that, as well as details of her long and unhappy history with Jill. Arthur didn't tell her that he'd learned it from Jill, but he did ask if her problems with Jill had led her back to drinking. When Katherine tried to shelve the whole topic of Jill, Arthur finally said what was on his mind. Was Katherine uncomfortable about discussing Jill because she was, in fact, his daughter, too?

Jack went to see Christine and put himself on the list of people who could talk about the impact of Victor's crimes. In the course of their discussion, he accused Christine of sounding more like Victor's attorney than the prosecutor bringing him to justice. Christine said that she'd done Jack a favor. If Victor hadn't pled guilty and had been found not guilty at a jury trial, Jack would have had a much harder time getting reparation in a civil suit. Jack said he not only wanted reparation, but he thought Victor should have some time alone in jail to consider the consequences of what he'd done. He wondered if Christine was cut out to be a district attorney, since her personal feelings for Victor were obviously influencing her actions.

J.T. dropped by Crimson Lights and saw Raul, who said he wasn't interested in going to the party with Brittany in the hospital.

He wouldn't say if he had anything special for Colleen, but insisted that he'd been working so hard he barely had time to go to class.

At the Carlton house, Sierra, Lily, and Colleen compared outfits and talked about how they hoped nothing went wrong at the dance. With any luck, Lauren would quickly be able to get the goods on Kevin. When J.T. arrived to pick them up, the three girls told him about visiting Kevin's apartment. At first J.T. was furious, telling them they weren't taking Kevin's danger seriously. Lily said the only thing unusual she'd been able to find in Kevin's apartment was a tool box, some duct tape, and some Styrofoam. None of them knew what that meant. They finally left for the party.
Lauren was startled out of her wits when Kevin appeared behind her at the boutique. While she tried to regain her composure, Kevin said he'd wanted them to ride to the dance together. Lauren put him off, saying that he should warn her before surprising her. Kevin apologized for scaring her and told her that he was crazy about her. Lauren finally managed to put on a good show of being interested in him, and Kevin told her there was one other problem. Some people at the party might say things about him in front of her or to her. He'd had some difficulties with them in his past, but he was moving forward now. Would Lauren's feelings for him be the same no matter what she heard? Lauren assured him that her feelings would go unchanged. So, Kevin wondered, could he drive her to the party?
Paul was baffled by the answers he was getting from Michael. Michael accused him of prying into his personal life, but Paul said he hadn't been. He'd been investigating Kevin. But there had to have been a reason for Kevin's visit to Michael's apartment. Previously, Michael had said that Kevin deserved to pay for what he'd done. Now Michael was suddenly acting like his attorney. Michael said that just because Kevin might have sought legal advice from him, that didn't mean Michael was representing him. But he was beginning to think that Kevin needed a lawyer, since he was being persecuted by all of them when there was no evidence that he'd done anything wrong. Paul said Michael would sell out his mother for the right price. Michael said maybe so, but he wouldn't betray his principles. Frustrated, Paul said there was some kind of connection between them and he was going to find it. Michael finally exploded, telling Paul that Kevin wasn't his client. Kevin Fisher was his brother.
