On the roof of the hospital, Jonathan reels from the news that Ava's married to Sandy. Meanwhile, thinking Fallon has taken care of getting Ava to agree to a divorce, Sandy asks Tammy to marry him. Thrilled and determined to end her conflict over Jonathan, she accepts.

Tammy and Sandy go to Company where they run into Cassie. They are unaware she's completely pre-occupied and worried about losing Hope. Cassie is considering going after Danny's record to try to hold on to the child. As mother and daughter celebrate the big engagement news, Ava admits to Jonathan that she still has feelings for Sandy.

Gus gets wind of what she's doing and races to the offices, nearly ruining her efforts. Working together, they bluff the accountant and get what they need, unaware Beth has seen them. Beth calls Alan. He realizes their plan to sink Harley at the meeting has hit a snag, so he puts Plan B into action. Later, at Alan's request, Beth brings him a video he's hidden at the house for just such an occasion.

Jonathan is about to tell Tammy what he knows about Ava and Sandy being married. But when she declares there's nothing he can say to make her change her mind about Sandy, he surprisingly pulls back, and says she's right. Tammy didn't expect this and when he leaves, there's a part of her that wishes he had fought for her.

Jonathan returns to Ava. She has told Sandy she doesn't want to give him up, despite his protests about being in love with Tammy. Getting Ava alone, Jonathan urges her to walk away because it's the right thing to do. He gives her a business card for a lawyer. He insists he is tired of chasing after Tammy. Now he's going to wait for her to realize she can't live without him.

Josh catches Billy with a bottle of liquor and lashes out at him for not being strong enough to stop drinking. He washes his hands of Billy for the night and leaves. He runs into Reva. She has just come from an intense encounter with Olivia, who she thinks is to blame for Billy's drinking. There's a tentative connection between Josh and Reva. But when Reva gets a panicked call from Billy, ready to get drunk, she makes an excuse to Josh and leaves. Olivia sees this and fills the void a little for Josh, leading to a vulnerable moment when she recalls a time when they could count on each other for anything. Josh pulls away and it's unclear whether a lonely Olivia might be looking to take Reva's place in Josh's life. Meanwhile, Reva sticks close to Billy, helping him through the night, but mindful of her missed opportunity with Josh.

He eventually gets her to lower her weapon. Edmund demands Dinah's arrest, but Mallet informs him the gun is a fake and that no charges can be filed.

It's Halloween and Dinah wants to cut loose and have fun. Mallet, however, won't let her out of his sight until she appears at her probation hearing. She bristles at what she sees as another man trying to control her, unable to see the good guy who has her best interest at heart. Meanwhile, Edmund finds a way to use Halloween to mask his appearance so that he can sneak into the jail to see Alan. Both men need the other in order to put their own desperate plans into motion. Edmund narrowly dodges discovery when Dinah and Mallet appear at the jail but later, he and Alan have forged an alliance. Cassie throws herself into the holiday spirit, not just for RJ's sake but to keep her own mind off the loss of Hope. Reva is there to help her, and tries to get her to confront her feelings. But, Cassie ultimately admits that she needs a kind of help she can't get from her sister or even from Jeffrey. Later, she calls upon an unlikely source for comfort - Dinah. Knowing what her mother is going through, Tammy is all the more eager to marry Sandy and create a stable, happy life for herself and her family. Which would be great for Sandy, if only Ava would agree to the divorce. A divorce is just what Jonathan urges Ava to go for, telling her that by setting Sandy free, she will have a fighting chance of winning him back. What he doesn't tell her is that he is setting up Sandy for a fall so that a heartbroken Tammy will turn to Jonathan for support. Later, when Ava signs the divorce papers, Jonathan tells Tammy and Sandy he wants to throw them an engagement party.
