Lily has been mistaken for Rose and she has been put in jail. She is in a cell next to Simon and they are kissing. Lucinda comes marching in and interrupts the two. She thinks that Lily is Rose and asks what is going on? Lily asks how long has she been there? Lucinda says that she has been there long enough. She asks if the infatuation with Holden is over and is she on to someone new? Lily asks, "Infatuation?" Lily realizes that Lucinda thinks that she is Rose. Lucinda says that this is why she needed the money from Craig, to get a plane ticket for the two of them to leave town. Lily says that she can't believe this, her own mother can't tell her apart from Rose. Lucinda asks why her daughter would be incarcerated? Lily tells her mother that it was a mistake, they took her for Rose. She says for her mother to look her in the eyes, the same eyes that have looked at her for years. Finally, Lucinda decides that Lily is telling the truth and then she wants to know why she was kissing that man? Lily says that there is a lot that she doesn't know. Finally, Lucinda gets Lily released from her cell and as they are leaving, Lily stops by Simon's cell and tells Lucinda to go ahead and she will catch up. Lucinda asks if she is going to start up where she left off. Lily reminds her mother that she is an adult and she doesn't need her to tell her anything. Lucinda reluctantly leaves. Simon tells Lily that he wishes he could help her through what she has to go through now. She says that she has been through hurricanes, attempts on her life and an outfit that would make Adam and Eve jealous and she can handle a show girl from Atlantic City. Simon tells her that he knows she can, but he has to say goodbye to her again and he had a hard time the first time. He says that this is funny, they are missing the good old days on the island, isn't this nuts? She says that they aren't nuts, it is the rest of the world that is. Lily leaves to catch up with Lucinda.

Everyone is starting to gather at the Lakeview for the Endicott Awards. Rose is in the back with Jake and she is very nervous. Jake reminds her that she is there to make a wrong, right. She says that she understands and she wants to help. Out front, Molly, Chris and Abigail are standing together and making sure they know the plan. They decide that it is time to set the plan into motion. Molly leaves and Abigail goes over to the technician behind all the equipment and starts to talk to him. He is delighted to talk to Abigail, but he informs her that no one is allowed behind the equipment except the technicians. She says that she understands, but she has lost her contact lens and asks him to help her find it. He tells her that he is not allowed to leave the equipment. She convinces him that it will only take a second and he decides to help her. After Abigail and the technician leave, Chris walks up and looks at the equipment. He sees that there is a tape sticking half out of the tape machine and is ready to be played. He takes out the tape of Katie's confession and starts to switch the tapes. Emily walks up and says that she can't believe that Chris is there? Emily keeps talking to Chris and he tries to get rid of her, but she won't go. Finally, Chris looks across the room and says, "Who is that beautiful woman with Jake?" Emily turns and says, "Where?" She takes off across the room to find Jake. Chris goes back to changing the tape and Katie walks up. She tells Chris that she didn't think he was the technical type. Chris tries to act like he isn't up to anything and Molly comes running over and takes Katie away and asks about her dress. Chris, finally changes the tape and the award show begins. The technician that has been helping Abigail tells her that he has to go and gets to his post in time to start the tape. Emily and Tom start the program by introducing Katie and her accomplishments at such a young age. Tom tells the technician to start the tape. The tape begins and it is the tape that Katie made the night the stalker had her held hostage at the station. A few minutes into the tape, Katie jumps up and says that this is the wrong tape, stop the tape. Holden tells her to sit down, he wants to hear it. The tape goes on and Katie explains that she has been a bad person, she had fixed it so Molly would lose her job and she could take it over. She adds that she made up the stalker bit to get a story and to get attention. Tom yells out to stop the tape. He says that someone is playing a bad joke on Katie. The technician stops the tape and Holden looks at Katie and asks if any of the tape was true? She starts to deny it and Craig and Margo come over to console her. Margo says that she can't believe that someone would play this joke on her. Craig says that whoever did this, will answer to him and he looks around the room. Molly backs up a little. As everyone is milling around the room, Rose walks out and asks for everyone's attention. Jake is standing beside her. Holden looks up and he can't believe that Rose is standing at the microphone. Rose asks everyone to please sit down, she has something to say. Everyone finds their seat and Rose starts telling the story about how she and Lily Snyder came to know each other. She goes on by telling everyone that she and Lily had switched their identities and then their fate had changed their lives. She tells everyone that she didn't mean to take Lily's identity, it just happened that way. She says that a lot of people had been hurt and she had to make this wrong, right. As she is talking, Lily and Lucinda show up. When Lily sees Rose at the front of the room, talking to everyone, she starts to go after her. Lucinda pulls her back and reminds her that the room is full of reporters. Lily stays and listens to Rose. Rose goes on to say that Katie had found out that she was not Lily, but Rose D'Angelo, a show girl from Atlantic City. She tells everyone that Katie made her go along with Katie's plan to get Holden. Rose says that she had to go along with it, because Katie had the goods on her. Holden looks at Katie and Katie hangs her head. Rose tells them the table turned when she got the goods on Katie. She knew that Katie was after Holden and she wouldn't let that happen. The cameras start to flash and Rose tells Holden that she is so sorry to tell him this way, but he had to know. Holden stands up and tells reporters to stop taking pictures. Rose and Jake leave the stage. Holden grabs Katie and takes her to the other side of the room. He confronts her about knowing that Rose was not Lily. She starts to deny it and Holden tells her that she had better not lie to him. She confesses and tries to explain. She tells Holden that she has been in love with him and Lily had been treating him so bad. She says that Lily ran off with Simon and she wanted him. Holden tells her that he can't believe that she held the truth about Lily. Katie asks if he can ever forgive her. He says that he never wants to see her again. When Holden leaves, Molly comes over to gloat. She tells Katie that she underestimated her and that was her biggest mistake. Molly pushes the Endicott Award into Katie's hand. Molly tells her that this is what she plotted to get and she hopes she will be very happy with it. Molly walks away and Margo comes over. Margo tells Katie that she stood up with her when she accused Chris of stalking her and she stood up to her husband taking Katie's side. Katie tells Margo that she has been so good to her. Margo says, "Yes." Margo goes on to says that she deserves to know the truth, did she make up the stalking story? Katie says, "Well, at first..." Margo tells Katie that she doesn't know her anymore and she doesn't want to know her. Margo leaves Katie crying.

After Rose's speech, Lucinda makes Lily leave for a bit to calm down. When Lily is calmer, they make their way back stage to find Rose. She is gone. Lily tells her mother if she hadn't insisted that Lily leave they could have confronted Rose and now she is gone.

Jake finds Molly and congratulates her on a job well done. Molly says that they all did it. Jake tells her that the best part of the whole night is that she is there, in his arms and that is the way he wants it to be for as long as possible. Jake kisses Molly.

Holden walks away and Molly steps in front of Jake and says that they need to back it up a bit. Did she hear him right? Is Rose staying at his apartment?

Lily tells Lucinda that everyday on the island, all she ever dreamed about was getting back home to her family. She goes on to say that little did she know, no one was missing her. Lucinda tells her to go easy on them. They had no idea that someone that looked just like her had existed on this earth.

Carly asked Craig Montgomery for assistance in obtaining custody of Parker. He agreed to help her if she consented to have dinner with him. A suspicious Carly asked him why he wanted her to have dinner with him when she had basically tried to scam him from day one. Craig laughingly informed her that she was "honestly dishonest" but that he liked it. He offered to let Carly move into his extra bedroom and loan her money (with interest) until she got a job. He told her that once she became an upstanding member of society, he would help her get Parker back.

Hal blew a gasket upon his and Barbara's arrival home when he learned that Jen let Bryant in the house while her parents were away in Las Vegas. Hal threatened to send Jen to boarding school to get her mind off of Bryant once and for all. Barbara accused Hal of being unreasonable where Bryant was concerned but Hal countered that she was being unreasonable about Carly. Barbara feared that because she initially lied to Hal all those years ago about Jen's paternity, he was taking it out on Jen now. On the spur of the moment, Barbara decided to go to a designer show in New York to give her and Hal time to think things through.

Lily arrived at the airport as Simon was boarding his plane and begged him to stay in Oakdale. Simon argued with her but Lily was adamant about not wanting him to leave. Simon reluctantly agreed to stay in Oakdale for one more night. Lily came to see him in his hotel room. When pressed by Simon for her reasons for wanting him to stay, Lily admitted that she was angry at Holden and her family for accepting Rose so easily. After confessing his love for her, Simon told Lily she needed to make a choice between him and her family. Lily told him she couldn't make such an important decision so quickly and rushed out of the hotel room. A few minutes later, there was a knock at the door and Lily was back. Simon let her in and when he asked why she came back, Lily said she didn't want to talk anymore and started kissing him. They fell to the bed together in a passionate embrace.
