Chris proposes to Alison, and she accepts, on the condition that she wants "the Cinderella experience," a traditional wedding. Later, in bed, she is delighted that "your mom and my mom will be related!"

Dusty leaves Lucy in their hideout long enough to meet Ken Starziak, in order to find out the identity of the man with the tattooed wrist. At the same time, Hal introduces his daughter, Nikki, the FBI agent, to all of Lucy's family. Nikki tells them that she intends to find Lucy by following Starziak, in hopes that Starziak will lead her to Dusty. They do not realize that a heavyset gangster is eavesdropping. Dusty returns and tells Lucy that he has learned that the kidnapper is named Donald Creel, but just then Nikki pounds on the door and handcuffs Dusty. Lucy hides as Dusty informs Nikki that he is protecting Lucy, and that Nikki is going to help him find the real kidnappers.

After the family meeting with Nikki, Craig goes back to his temporary home at Holden and Lily's guest house. After Lily tells Craig good night, Lucinda accosts her and demands, "Don't let this mean, lying, pusillanimous wretch infect your home!"

At the metro, Aaron agrees to stay to help Molly close for the night. Starziak, sitting at a nearby table, overhears their conversation and leaves. Aaron is called away to check a bogus gas leak, and Starziak and his thug, Rocco, demand that Molly tell them what she told the feds. When Aaron returns, he and Holden find Molly gone and the metro in shambles.

In the boathouse, Mike surveys the site of Pilar's death and thinks of the mess he made by letting Pilar manipulate him. He finds Katie's bracelet, and Henry persuades him to return it to Katie in person. However, Simon refuses to let him see Katie, and Mike leaves, dejected. At about the same time, Katie finds the note Pilar shoved under the pillow for Simon, which says, ." Spain...I promised you that I would get Katie away from Mike..." Katie storms downstairs and confronts Simon with the note. Simon admits that he struck a deal with Pilar to keep Katie and Mike apart. Simon tells Katie, "It was a stupid, insecure thing to do, and I regret it." Katie reminds Simon that he was a con man when they married, and that he is conning her right now. Simon begs, "What will it take for you to forgive me?"

Lily starts to apologize for her Mother, but Craig interrupts her. He says he will have his say when she is done. Lucinda tells Craig that he has used both his children unmercifully. He tells her that he has always loved his children and will do anything for them. He has always been Daddy to them. He was the one that fathered them when Sierra was off running her country and he was the one who took care of them. Lucinda reminds him that no matter what, he has always put himself first.

Margo runs into Mike. Mike is reminded of so many things that bring Katie to mind. He feels he treated her so badly. He regrets all the things he did and all the things that went wrong, because he didn't trust Katie. She tells him to go after her, but he can't bring himself to do it.

Katie tells Simon that he is still trying to con her now. He tells her he just loves her so much. He is really sorry for what happened. Katie says that sometimes sorry isn't always enough. Katie then asks, "If Pilar hadn't left the note she did, would he ever have told her the truth?" She realizes that he would not have. If what you tell me isn't real, how can I really want to see you ever again? Katie tells Simon that sometimes the hurt is just too deep. Katie says that Mike was not the one that came between them. He was. Simon, tells Katie that if he walks out the door, they will both have a lifetime of regret. Katie tells him to leave and not to come back this time. Simon removes his wedding ring and gives it to Katie. He leaves. Margo is at the door almost immediately. Margo tries to console her but, Katie wants her to figure out what she is going to do next. Margo tells Katie that if you are lucky enough to find real love once in your lifetime, it is worth fighting to keep. Katie goes to where Mike is. She tells him that they need to talk, if, he still wants to. She says he may like what she has to say.

Nikki is still trying to figure out Dusty and Lucy. She tells Lucy that Dusty is not reliable. Lucy begs to differ with her. " He has saved her life and kept her safe," says Lucy. Dusty claims that Starziak's men are not the ones after Lucy. Outside, Dusty tells Nikki that Lucy is not safe, even if she was at home. The people doing this are connected somehow with Lucy's life.

Dusty tells Lucy that he thinks it was a good idea having Nikki Munson drop by. Nikki starts complaining that the pretzels she is eating are moldy. They both hear a noise and wonder who is coming. Dusty, at first thinks that it is Nikki who called the guys in the cars. Nikki reaches Hal and Emily's place, as her cell phone rings. It is Dusty calling and he wants to know who she told about them all ready. Nikki tells him that she didn't sell them out. She doesn't know anything about the guys outside or anything going on. Emily overhears part of the conversation and starts to question Nikki. She calls Emily rude and they get into another argument. Nikki knows that she has not been received with open arms by Emily, and confronts her with the idea that if she wants her to leave, just tell her. Emily does just that. Hal arrives home later, and calls everyone downstairs. He asks where Nikki is, and Emily says, I don't know, she's gone. Then she tells Hal that she asked Nikki to leave. Hal stands there astonished.

Back at the warehouse where Lucy notices that the noise they heard are not police cars but trucks, men are approaching where they are located. Dusty and Lucy hide in a large crate. The men enter, and, one of them notices that the place looks like it had visitors. Dusty covers Lucy's mouth as she tries to say something. The men walk out of the warehouse. Lucy removes Dusty's hand. They almost kiss but a large noise interrupts the mood. The men have come back and all of a sudden, Dusty and Lucy, are being crated and loaded into something that indicates they are being shipped somewhere.

Craig walks into a hotel room where two (2) men are playing cards. Craig announces that the police know all about them. They have the name of the guy with the tattoo and are looking for them. Craig tells them to get lost. They want to know about the money he promised them. He tells them that they muffled the job and deserve nothing. The men tell him that they will tell everyone that he is responsible for setting up the kidnapping of his own daughter. Craig tells them that if they don't walk out the door with nothing, he will pick up the phone and call the police, which he starts to do. Craig reminds them that they were to kidnap Lucy, hold her for ransom, and, then Craig was supposed to save her, but it didn't go at all like that. The men walk out, but say to each other that they are not done with Craig yet. Craig remains behind to pick up any belongings and things left. He picks up a picture of Lucy and tells it not to give up on him yet. Craig leaves the room, but, as he does, he runs into Nikki Munson, where apparently she is spending the night. During the process, it looks as though the picture of Lucy has fallen out of Craig's pocket.

Margo comes in the door and notices Tom there. She tells him that she is ready to tell him everything. She says that she wants him to know it all. Margo tells Tom about Doc's advances. She passed it off as innocent flirting the first time, but, the second time, he kissed her. It was in the locker room. He wants to know why Margo didn't slap Doc back. What was wrong? She can't answer him. Tom says they had made a promise to each other never to go down that road again. She tells him that it only happened once and nothing else. Tom leans over to tell her that he doesn't believe her. Katie knocks on the door and asks Margo to go back to the cottage.

On the way out, Margo tells Tom they have to get through this.

Katie talks with Mike. Mike thinks she is there to tell him that she appreciates what he did. He knows that she loves him and yes, he loves her but, sometimes, love isn't enough. Mikes reminds her of all the chances they had together, and they just blew them away. He tells her that he won't come after her, and tells her that she should give everything you have to Simon. She tells him, she saw Simon for the first time tonight. Mike says that Simon has the best in Katie. Mike has called Henry. He tells him that he saw Katie. Henry disagrees with him because he called the airport and the flight all ready left. Mike says that perhaps they took a later flight. At Katie's place, Katie wants Margo to tell everyone that she did leave with Simon. She especially wants Mike to know this. She wants him to find someone who will make him happy. Margo says, that the trust sets one free, but if you are hurting someone you love, she just doesn't know. Katie is closing the front door to leave town for awhile, and quietly says goodbye to Mike, their time together was way too short.

Doc is leaving the club when Jill comes up to him. She reminds him of where she knows him from. She tells him that she would like to spend some time with him. He tells her she is beautiful and should be with somebody who will return her attention. She reminds him of catching him with Margo, and, he pushes her off with some excuse. He also remembers Kim's talk with him. He goes to call Margo, but, thinks she might be with Tom.
