Molly went to the jail to see Rose, still believing she was Lily. Rose explained things to her, but she didn't believe that Rose was a con artist. Police officer Shanks entered with Rose's dinner, and Rose asked him to tell Molly who she was. Shanks said that she'd probably tried to tell Molly that she was Lily, but she was a con artist named Rose D'Angelo. Molly looked at Rose in disbelief.

Shanks left, and Rose told said she needed Molly to do something for her. At first, Molly didn't want to have anything to do with Rose, but when Rose reminded Molly about the tape, Molly started to listen. Rose told her that if Molly didn't go into Holden and Lily's house, Katie would, and she would find the tape. Rose gave Molly a key to get in, and Molly left.

After Molly left, Jake and Lucinda went to visit Rose. They had been trying to make a connection between Rose and Lily. They told Rose that they wanted to ask her some questions. Rose told them to ask away, but she didn't know anything. They gave her a copy of the picture of the woman that was dressed in the late 1800s costume. She told them that she didn't know who the woman was, and she had found the picture in a trunk with a lot of mementos. She told them that she thought the lady was an ancestor, but she didn't know her name or how they were related.

Lucinda and Jake started to leave, and Rose told him about Molly being there. Rose reported that Molly was on her way to get the tape from the house. Jake got an unhappy look on his face. He took out his cell phone to make a call.

Katie told Henry that she needed to get into Holden's house and find the tape. Henry told her to give it up. He said that Holden would never love her; he was too in love with his wife. Katie still held on to the idea of her and Holden. She just couldn't give it up, and she left to go to Holden's.

Molly arrived at Holden and Lily's house, and she opened the door with the key that Rose had given her. She went inside and yelled for anyone, but nobody answered. She went to the chest that Rose had told her to and found the tape. She started toward the door, and someone began to open the door. Molly ran and hid.

Emma was there with the kids to get some things then they would leave again. As Emma was gathering up the toys and stuff for the kids, the doorbell rang, and Katie was there. She told Emma that she had been working on something for Holden, and she'd lost her copy on the computer. She asked if she could get the hard copy from Holden's briefcase. Emma was apprehensive, but she let Katie in then went to check on Luke.

Katie started to search the living room for the tape. She went to the chest where the tape had been and found an empty case. Emma yelled from the other room and asked Katie if she was finished yet. Katie ran to Holden's briefcase and took out some papers. Emma entered and apologized for rushing Katie, but she was ready to leave again with the children. Katie said that she understood, and she'd found the papers and was ready to leave also. Molly was watching the whole time.

After Katie and Emma closed the door, Molly emerged from hiding and headed for the door. She decided that maybe she would take the empty case with her, and she retrieved it from the chest. She got outside, and her cell phone rang, which scared her at first. She answered the phone, and Jake was on the other end. He asked her what she was up to, and she said that she was talking to the most handsome man in Oakdale.

Jake said that he thought that they should get together at the Lakeview and compare notes. She asked if that was a code word for something fun. He said that they needed to talk about the felon that they'd both visited that day. He said that he wanted to ask her one question. He asked why, if they had so much in common, there were so many secrets. Then he added that he would be waiting and hung up his cell phone.

Katie met Henry at the Lakeview and told him that she was screwed. She'd only found an empty tape case. He told her once again to cut her ties and give up. Jake was waiting across the room for Molly. Molly entered and threw the tape on the table. She tried to explain that she just couldn't let Katie win. Jake started to lecture her then he agreed with her.

Molly started to write a note, and she told him to cover her. She put the note in the empty tape case and asked the waiter to get them their best champagne and deliver the package to the blonde at the bar. The waiter took the package to Katie and said it had just arrived for her. She opened up the package and saw the tape case. She got excited, thinking that it was the tape she had been looking for. She opened the case and found only a note. The note read, "You snooze, you lose, loser."

Katie looked across the room at Molly and Jake, and they were laughing. Molly yelled across the room that she thanked Katie. It had been quite a ride. Katie looked at Henry and said that she was dead. Henry said that they needed to get out of there. They didn't have to watch Jake and Molly gloat.

Rose got Officer Shanks to let her make a call. She called Lucinda and said that she had been thinking about family, especially about Luciano. Lucinda said that he was none of her business anymore. Rose said that she knew Luke was starting first grade the next day, and she was wondering if Lucinda would write him a note and put in his book bag to make his first day go better. Lucinda told Rose to mind her own business, and she hung up the phone. Lucinda said, "Really, I never..."

On the island, Lily and Simon were finishing making another raft. They were very excited to set sail in the morning and finally get home. Celia was watching from behind a tree. She realized that they intend on leaving her behind on the island, alone. She rushed back to Cooley's hut, got the flares that she'd found, and set the hut on fire.

Back at Lily and Simon's cave, they heard Celia screaming for help. They ran to the hut, but it was all burned up, and Simon thought that Celia was in the rubble. Lily held him back so he didn't get burned. They started looking for Celia in the jungle. She was nowhere to be found. It hit them that maybe she had set the hut on fire to get them to leave the cave so she could steal the raft. The made a mad dash to the beach.

Celia went to the cave and found the raft and all the food. But there was one more thing that she needed before she left the island -- the diamond. She started to tear the cave apart and finally found the diamond. She got the raft, the food, and the diamond down to the beach and took off.

Simon and Lily arrived right after Celia had set sail. It was too late. They couldn't get her to return, and the ocean was too rough to go after her. Simon started to have a fit, and Lily tried to calm him down. They looked back at Celia, and she was nowhere to be found. The sea was too rough, and she seemed to have gone under.

Simon started to go into the water to save Celia, and Lily stopped him. She told him that he couldn't save her. Lily said she needed him on the island. He realized it was too late. She said that there wasn't anything he could have done. Simon looked at Lily with tears in his eyes and said that Celia was gone. Lily told him that she was still there; he still had her. She walked over, took Simon in her arms, and hugged him tight.

Ben heard a young doctor and a nurse gossiping about him. He went over to the doctor to yell at him, and at that moment, a boy was taken into the emergency room. The boy was writhing in pain on the gurney. Ben and the younger doctor went over to the boy. The younger doctor assumed that the boy had been doing drugs. Ben asked the boy his name, and the boy said his name was Curtis. The young doctor asked the boy if he had been doing cocaine. Curtis said no.

The young doctor saw needle marks in Curtis' arms and told Curtis not to lie and to tell them what kind of drug he had been doing. Curtis said that he had been doing no drugs. Ben yelled at the young doctor and said that the boy was not on any drugs; he had a blood clot in his lung. The young doctor questioned Ben, and Ben told him to talk to his patient. He held Curtis' hand up and showed the doctor that Curtis had needle pricks on his fingers -- he was a diabetic.

Curtis said, through his pain, that he had been on insulin. Ben rushed Curtis off to a room. Later, Ben had Curtis stable, and he told the boy that he would need to stay with them a little while. Ben asked Curtis about his family. Curtis said his father wasn't around anymore, and his mother was in rehab. The nurse took Curtis' records to Ben. Ben saw that he had a guardian.

Ben read out loud that Curtis' guardian was Isaac Jenkins. He asked if Curtis wanted them to call Isaac. Curtis said that he was okay and asked Ben not to call Isaac. Ben left the room and called Isaac. When Isaac arrived at the hospital, Ben told him about Curtis. Isaac explained that Curtis was one of his tae kwon do kids. Ben said that Curtis had Isaac listed as his guardian if his parents couldn't be reached.

Isaac told Ben about Curtis being under his care. Curtis needed to have a certain dose of medication at certain times, and he had been in trouble with the law. It was more than Isaac had been able to handle. So, he had made Curtis go to the halfway house because they had nurses and social workers on staff that could help him. Ben asked if Curtis thought that Isaac had abandoned him. Isaac said he thought so. Isaac asked Ben how he was supposed to face Curtis. Ben said to talk to him straight and tell him the truth. Isaac said he would do that.

Denise entered the kitchen where Andy was eating his breakfast. She had a piece of paper in her hand. She told Andy that she had been cleaning up his room and had found the paper with instructions for him from the hospital. She said that one of the things he was supposed to do was call and set up appointments for physical therapy. He told her that he just needed a break, and he'd told his father that. He asked her why he had to keep explaining himself to everyone.

Denise told Andy that she had taken it upon herself to call and set up an appointment. Andy argued that he couldn't go that day. Denise asked him who was going to help him if he didn't help himself. A horn honked, and Denise looked out the door and said that he was there. Andy asked who was there. Denise told him that the taxi that was going to take them to the hospital for his physical therapy was there. She started to push him out the door, and he reminded her that he was in a wheelchair. She said she knew that, and the taxi was wheelchair capable. She pushed him out the door.

When Denise and Andy got to the physical therapist, Andy was making up all kinds of excuses why he couldn't be at the physical therapist that day. Denise reminded Andy that he needed to work on getting better so he didn't have to be in the wheelchair anymore. Finally, Andy told Denise that he was afraid of losing her and Hope. Denise said that she had told him that she would be with him until he was walking then they would go off on their merry way, but she and Hope would always be his family.

Denise tried to raise Andy's spirits by engaging him in a game of basketball. As they were playing, Denise made a shot and fell into Andy's lap. She told him that he'd fouled her, and he said that he hadn't. As they were arguing, Isaac walked by, saw the two, shook his head, and walked away. The physical therapist entered and interrupted Denise and Andy. The physical therapist introduced himself then started to check Andy's legs. Andy pulled back and said that he couldn't do it that day. He wheeled himself out of the room. Denise apologized to the physical therapist, and she ran after Andy.

When Curtis returned to the room from getting his test, Isaac was waiting for him. Isaac explained about sending Curtis to the halfway house. Curtis said that he understood, and Isaac said that he would take care of Curtis again. Isaac asked Curtis what he thought of Dr. Ben, and Curtis said that he was a righteous dude. Isaac smiled and said, "Yes, he is."

Cooley told Holden that he would take Holden to his wife, but he had to get Cooley out of jail first. Holden said that his bail was half a million dollars. Cooley said that if Holden wanted his wife badly enough, he would pay. Holden said that he had to go see if he could find that kind of money. Holden left and called Lucinda. He told her that he had a lead on Lily, but he needed $500,000, and she probably wouldn't get her money back. She told him that she would do anything he needed.

Holden got off the phone and told the guard to tell Cooley that he had a deal. Later, Cooley got out of jail, and he and Holden discussed what they needed for the trip. Cooley said that they would need a float plane. Holden said they would need a pilot. Cooley said he would fly the plane. Holden reminded Cooley that the last time he'd flown a plane, he'd ended up in a field somewhere. Cooley said that he'd had a little problem that day; he had met some rocks with his face. Cooley gave Holden a list of provisions to get to take along on the trip. Holden looked at the list and said that Cooley had to be kidding.

Finally, Holden and Cooley got on their way. As they were flying, Holden commented that he hoped that Lily was okay. Cooley said not to worry; her boyfriend had been taking care of her. Holden asked who was on the island with her. Cooley said that it was "some Aussie dude." Cooley asked if Holden knew him, and Holden said, "Oh yeah, I know him."

Holden questioned Cooley about Lily and Simon. Cooley said that he only knew that they were sharing a cave. Cooley said that Lily was a little spitfire. He said that the rocks that his head had been in contact with on the day he'd crashed the plane had been from Lily. As they got near the island, Cooley told Holden to fasten his seatbelt and make sure his seat was in an upright position; they were getting close.

Cooley pulled out a gun and said that they needed to get their firearms in place too. Holden asked where Cooley had gotten the gun because he had been locked up. Cooley replied that he had gotten it from the guard at the airport. He told Holden they would need the gun if that "crazy sister" was on the island. Holden asked if Celia Frazier was on the island too. Cooley said that he hadn't caught her name, but she had been packing heat. He handed Holden the gun, and Holden looked very worried.

Ben was furious when Bob confessed that two of Ben's patients had been transferred to another doctor at their request. Andy got up from his wheelchair to put a pair of scissors out of Hope's reach. A confident Carly told Molly that Jack would never go through with the marriage, and she'd be there waiting for him. An impetuous Jack suggested to Julia they elope to Las Vegas, and Julia agreed, provided they leave that day.

Ben told Bob he was taking a leave of absence. Molly tried to convince Carly to move on, to no avail. Barbara got a call that she and Hal had won a dream vacation, which turned out to be Jack and Julia bursting in the door with tickets to Las Vegas and a plea for them to act as the witnesses. Hal surprised Barbara when he suggested they accept and use it to celebrate their anniversary.

Bob suggested to a worried Kim that she call a support group on Andy's behalf. Isaac and Curtis showed up at Ben's apartment, and Isaac asked his brother to watch over Curtis for a month while he recuperated -- in exchange, Isaac would do surveillance on Andy.

Bob broke up a friendly poker game between Andy and Denise with the news of Ben's leave of absence. Julia insisted to Barbara that she was not pregnant but admitted they were rushing the nuptials because of Carly. Hal maddened Carly when he told her Parker would be staying with Bob and Kim, not her, while he and Barbara went away.

Denise decided to visit Ben. Kim insisted Andy see his visitor -- he needed a reality check. Ben reluctantly agreed to take care of Curtis after Isaac promised to find proof that Andy's paralysis wasn't real. When Carly implied that Barbara had planned the trip to thwart Carly's plans to be alone with Parker, Hal blurted out that they were going to Vegas to see Jack and Julia get married.

Andy was stunned into silence at the sight of Kim's wheelchair-bound assistant, Sally. Ben opened the door and saw Denise. Jack threw away a memento of his wedding day with Carly and comforted Julia when she had doubts. An upset Carly begged Hal to stop Jack from going through with the wedding then cried in Molly's arms.

Jennifer and Hal had finally mended their father/daughter relationship just in time for Hal and Barbara to go off to Vegas to witness Jack and Julia getting married. After Hal and Barbara left, Bryant showed up, and Adam tried to throw him out, telling Jennifer not to believe anything he said. Bryant agreed to leave because Jennifer said she wanted to forget him. He kissed her and asked if she could forget that. She later called him and said she couldn't.

While Cooley and Holden got closer to finding Lily, Simon and Lily got closer also. Lily decided to act like Rose. Since Rose had stolen her life, she wanted to try to steal Rose's.

Denise got a visit from Sally, and she tried to get him to attend a meeting that was set up for people in wheelchairs. He finally agreed to go.

Denise went to see Ben and saw Curtis. She tried to get Ben to open up about going before the board at the hospital, but he didn't want to. She told him how she still felt about him and said if he needed anyone to talk to, he could give her a call.

Carly persuaded Molly to let her borrow a credit card so that Carly could fly to Las Vegas to stop Jack and Julia's wedding ceremony. Molly tried to talk her stubborn cousin out of making a fool of herself by going to Vegas but was unable to do so.

Jack, Julia, Hal, and Barbara arrived at a very cheesy Las Vegas wedding chapel. The regular officiant was called away, so a "guest reverend," the neighborhood Elvis impersonator, was called in to perform the ceremony. Hal tried to talk Barbara into renewing their wedding vows, but Barbara questioned his motives. Julia confided to Barbara her insecurities regarding Jack and Carly's on again-off again relationship. She was apprehensive that perhaps Jack's eagerness to marry her was his way of getting back at Carly for leaving him at the altar. In the midst of the ceremony, Carly burst into the chapel, pleading with Jack to talk to her.

The members of the support group bombarded Andy with questions and comments about his condition, making him extremely uncomfortable. After a harrowing plane ride, Holden and Cooley finally landed on the island. Cooley gave Holden directions to the cave with Lily in it, and Holden rushed off to find his wife.

Meanwhile, Lily and Simon shared a dance and a very deep, intimate kiss before Lily realized what was happening and slapped Simon to stop him from kissing her. To Lily's dismay, Simon professed that he was madly in love with her. She tried to convince Simon that he would forget her once they got back to civilization, but eventually she confessed that she wanted Simon as much as he wanted her. She informed him, however, that wanting someone and loving someone were two very different things.

Simon argued that since they shared the same feelings, they should do something about them. Initially, Lily was resistant, but she soon gave in to her feelings, and the two of them fell to the ground, kissing deeply. Suddenly, Holden barreled into the cave, crying out Lily's name. In horror and disbelief, he witnessed his wife in a passionate horizontal embrace with Simon.
