At the abandoned funhouse, Troy taunts Lindsay as she thinks about killing him but he knows she can't do it. Her confession is safe and secure; he wants her to turn herself in to the police. Lindsay will not go to prison, she spits. She will find the remote tape and destroy it. After thinking about where the tape could be, she realizes it's probably at Troy's place. As she searches him for his key, he offers to stick by her at the police station. He tries to sway her by telling her what a wonderful new life she'll have, full of trust. She hesitates slightly but grabs the keys, crying that he has ruined her future and her dream. She will have to leave him there while she looks for the tape, she informs him, but it's his own fault. After Lindsay takes off, Troy struggles to get free, promising Nora that he will get the proof to her in some way.

Keri and Antonio have both made decisions regarding their future together. They both have decided to remain together because they love each other. Keri realizes that Antonio is a cop and was only doing his job. She also appreciates that Antonio apologized to her father. They make plans to meet later and once Keri leaves the police station, Antonio arranges for a delivery to R.J.

Max stops by Capricorn where he and R.J. talk about the police at the previous night's opening. R.J. is thrilled that Antonio was the one who looked like a fool. Besides, he knows that Keri and Antonio will never be together again, especially since Keri viewed the whole incident. The men joke over the coincidence of the whole thing and the phony tip that led to it all. Keri drops by and praises R.J. for pressing charges over the phony bust. As the two are speaking a delivery man arrives with a package for R.J. It's a replacement of Keri's broken gift. Believing it's from Keri, R.J. thanks her but she denies all knowledge of it. He opens the card and is enraged to find it's from Antonio. Keri informs her father that she has a date later that night. She stands by Antonio for apologizing and replacing the gift and wonders who originated the phony tip and why. After she takes off, an incensed R.J. growls that Antonio hasn't begun to pay yet.

Roxanne stops the adoption ceremony but Jess defends her to everyone as several of the attendees try to usher her out. She only wants to make sure that Jess gets everything she's entitled to, she says. Jess informs her that she's doing it because she loves Viki. The papers are finally signed and Roxy snaps pictures. She wants a drink but Jess tries to prevent her from that as Ben explains to Viki that he ran some tests on Roxanne and she has hypoglycemia. He also quickly informs her that Jess was tested and is alright. He suggests that Roxy stop by the clinic to get more testing done but she announces that she only wants to say goodbye since she can't bear going to the free clinic. Jess is concerned and tells her she'll stop by later. Viki realizes she knows nothing about Jess' medical history while a nearby Blair realizes the same about Jack. She thinks Nellie should be tested but Todd claims to already know everything about the baby. He'll take care of any medical records. Viki confides to Natalie that she's had breast cancer so she must be aware of testing for that. She's also happy that Nat has seemingly accepted the relationship between Jess and Seth. Asa can't believe that Roxanne is Jess' real mother. Bo tells Asa that he's willing to supervise his community service at the police station. Natalie commends Cris for being there for Jess though he admits it's difficult because of Jen's presence. Al requests that Jen get him a drink and wheels over to Cris while she's gone. He quietly tells Cris that he knows everything because Jen told him all. He warns Cris to stay away from Jen as she only gets upset when she sees him. He agrees and then politely asks Al how his physical therapy is going. He hopes Al can walk again soon, he says. Nora asks Jen if she has a telephone number for Lindsay and Troy but Jen doesn't know how to get in touch with them, though they both seemed to be acting strangely before they left. Nora reminds Jen that she loves Sam. Al leaves the party early.

Lindsay lets herself into Troy's loft and frantically searches for the tape while at the funhouse, Troy continues to try to break free from the handcuffs. Suddenly, Lindsay finds the tape and yells- she's won!

Asa warns Roxy not to mess with the Buchanan family after she tries to get him to give her a drink. Natalie, appearing skeptical over Roxy's statements has followed and warns her of the same. Roxy tells her how much nicer Jess is and that's why Seth likes her better. Once outside, she places a quick call to Allison to inform her that Jess is now a Buchanan and that she "smells money." Natalie whines to Cris about Seth but Cris thinks he's changed. Jen suggests that Nat get her stuff out of the carriage house.

Back at the carriage house Al receives a call from Max and lies about his wonderful news. He's received an award at school but doesn't want to celebrate. He does some quick research on his computer about regaining the use of his legs and realizes he needs strength to build up his limbs. He stands by himself but recalling the conversation between Jen and Cris getting back together once Al can walk, he abruptly sits down.

Once back at the police station, Bo gets a promise from Antonio that he will stay on R.J. but hopes that no one will get hurt.

Lindsay smells victory but playing the tape, she learns that it only contains Troy's medical dictation regarding his patients. As she begins to turn the loft upside down, Cris walks in and wonders what she's doing.

After everyone leaves, Viki tells Nat how proud she is of her but once she spies Seth and Jess getting cozy she storms off for the carriage house. As Al stands up and takes a couple of steps, Nat walks in. Jen hasn't returned yet as she's returned to Llanfair to pick up her forgotten purse.

While he helps her straighten up the apartment, Lindsay comes up with a story that Troy discovered that his passport was missing and she was trying to find it. Cris seems concerned and asks if she's all right, she says sure, just will he do something for her. She asks him not to tell Jen about her coming back because as far as she knows, she's getting married right now. Before she leaves, Lindsay tells Cris that she has to go stop Troy- err the plane and that it's her wedding day; the happiest day of her life.

At the Llanfair carriagehouse, Natalie is stunned when she discovers Al standing up a step away from his wheelchair.

Natalie leaves to go tell Jen and Jessica when Al stops her.

Blair, baby Jack and Todd arrive at the newspaper to be met by Gabrielle.

As Natalie attempts to tell Cristian about Al, they are interrupted. Once Cristian's visitor leaves, Natalie begins to tell Cristian that Al has been faking everyone out.
