This triggers a violent attack of nausea on Gwen's part and glowering looks from Will.

As Gwen and Will watch Casey leave with his family and Celia, Gwen blurts out to Will that she is pregnant and Casey is the father.

At the prom party, Casey tells Celia that he loves her....she says she loves him, but she is actually thinking of Will when she says it.

Rosanna tries to convince Paul that she really loves him and that it was James who made her break up with Paul. He tells Rosanna that he could almost believe her except that she showed up with Craig. Her story of how Craig saved her life in Bangkok just doesn't wash - and neither does anything else she says about James and Cabot. But Rosanna continues to plead with him, and even kisses him....he kisses her back!

Hal is angry that Emily wants to press charges against Rosanna. He even tells her that he won't allow it! Emily is furious and hurt, but so is Hal.

Emily asks him why she is always the last priority in his life, why she is an afterthought. Emily tells him that she will stay with her mother for awhile but assures Hal that she will press charges against Rosanna. Hal asks her if she is doing that for her or for Paul....Emily goes to tell Paul that they cannot get any help from Hal, but she walks in on Rosanna and Paul kissing.

She is afraid that Keith is involved in Julia's murder and thinks that the man she has let into her heart is a murderer. Carly agrees to stay with Lily while she tries to get some rest. When Lily goes upstairs, Carly picks up the phone to call Jack. Just as the Oakdale Police answer, the line goes dead! Carly is worried and goes for her cell phone. She is waiting for Jack to answer as the doorbell rings. She isn't sure what to do, but then hears Jack's voice calling for Lily. She is relieved and starts to walk toward the door - but she doesn't reach the door, because someone wearing black gloves grabs her from behind, covering her mouth.

Lily was asleep after taking a sedative and was having a terrible nightmare about Keith. Carly was at Lily's trying to call Jack when suddenly the power and phone went out. All of the sudden someone grabbed Carly from behind and dragged her upstairs to the attic. Carly screamed for Lily, but than the person that was holding her captive gagged her and locked her in a trunk. Lily having heard Carly call her name tried to find her but with no luck. Lily wound up in her bedroom but after she turned her back someone locked her in. Downstairs of Lily's house someone poured gasoline all over Lily's house and set it on fire. Lily tried desperately to get out of the house when Keith showed up and carried her outside to safety. Once outside Keith and Lily saw Les and realized that he was the one behind the fire. Les held Keith and Lily at gunpoint and made them leave with him. Carly was still trapped inside the trunk but managed to get free and push the trunk open, but the house was covered with flames.

Ben and Jessica arrived at the police station to tell Jack about Lily's car accident. Jessica started to tell Jack about Lily's concerns that Keith may have been involved in Julia's murder. Jack feared that something may be wrong so he called Holden and asked him to meet him at the site of Lily's accident. Holden was at the farm talking with Lucinda when Jack called, once Holden received the call from Jack he asked Lucinda to watch the kids and left. Holden and Jack were at the site of Lily's accident when Jack saw that Lily's brakes had been tampered with.

Luke was upset about his parents getting a divorce so he went to Keith's house to talk with him but only to find that the house was broken into and destroyed. Outside of Keith's house Luke saw the smoke coming from his house and ran off. Just as Luke got to his house Holden and Jack showed up. Luke spotted Lily and Keith leaving with some man and told Holden. Holden rushed off to find Keith and Lily. Jack thought that Carly was inside the burning house so he rushed in to save her. Jack made it upstairs to the attic to find Carly trapped. Carly told Jack to save himself but Jack refused to leave without her.

Meanwhile Les took Keith and Lily to the basement of the Snyder farm and was about to shoot Lily when Keith jumped in the way and was shot in the shoulder. Holden found them and tried to get the gun from Les but Les punched Holden and ran off. Les ran upstairs to where Lucinda was and held the gun to her head. Les was about to shoot Holden when Jack came and shot Les. Jack confirmed that Les was dead and Jack and Carly embraced.

Holden was sifting through the debris and found a picture of his family. Luke came in and asked Holden if he was okay. Holden said the important thing was that everyone survived and was okay. Luke started to cry in Holden's arms. Afterwards, they started to clean out some stuff from the house. Holden said that family was the most important thing they had. Luke asked if the family could be fixed. Holden said he didn't know. Holden later found the divorce papers and told Jack he thought it was funny that everything else was destroyed but not the papers. Jack was quick to add that Lily never signed the papers.

Lily was sitting at the hospital with Keith who was in a lot of pain. Keith wanted to know why she was there and not with her family. She told him she wanted to make sure he was doing okay. He said he would survive and that she needed to be with her kids. Lily told him that he saved her life and wanted to know if they had a chance together. Keith asked her if there was a 'we' anymore. Lily told Keith that he came into her life at a very unhappy time. She asked Keith if he could ever forgive her. He told her that there was nothing to forgive and that he loved her. They both agreed to start over and forget about the past. As they kissed, Holden watched through the door.

At the farm, Jack went after Carly and told her that Les was dead for good. They were interrupted by someone from Internal Affairs who had questions for Jack. Carly went outside and, as she stood outside the door, kept seeing Les. Jack came outside and found her standing there terrified. Jack wants Carly to see someone professional to help her. Internal Affairs told Jack the case was closed and left. Rosanna arrived and she and Carly had a nice reunion. Rosanna explained to Carly what happened and Carly told her that Rosanna needed to tell people what really happened with Cabot. Rosanna disagreed and changed the subject. Carly picked up Sage so Rosanna could see how much she has grown. Craig arrived as she was leaving and told Rosanna that Paul and Emily would not be pressing charges.

Craig and Rosanna were at the Lakeview talking about Emily need for revenge. She was worried about James finding out about Cabot. Craig told her not to worry and he left to take care of it. Rosanna started to read the paper and realized Carly needed her after she read about the fire. Meanwhile, Paul called Emily and said he had arranged a meeting with Tom Hughes. There call was interrupted by Mike who had come to talk about Jennifer. Mike told Paul to just stay away from him and Jennifer. Mike wants to handle Craig by himself. Craig arrived and asked Paul to cut a deal. Craig told Paul that he knew all about the false charges against him and he would use it against them if Paul and Emily would forget about their revenge against Rosanna. Craig then laid a big guilt trip on Paul about not helping Rosanna when she needed him. At the hospital, Emily was trying to get her mother to see her side. Susan didn't want any part of it because she thought it wouldn't do any good. Emily couldn't believe that her mother was taking Hal's side. Emily went to Paul's and came unglued when Paul told her about the deal Craig wanted to make. Emily yelled at Paul for giving in to Craig and pushed him away only to pull him in again and they started to kiss.

Katie arrived at Mike's and expected to see him but got Jennifer instead. Katie said she wanted to talk to Mike and Jennifer. Jennifer invited Katie in and they made small talk until Katie mentioned Craig and how she felt bad about what Craig was doing. Jennifer got angry and told Katie that Craig would never be a part of the baby's life. She also told Katie that she didn't trust her either. Katie apologized but Jennifer said that Katie needed to worry about her own family and not interfere with hers. Katie left visibly upset and ran into Mike who wanted to know what was wrong. Katie tried to explain to Mike what she had just tried to explain to Jennifer. Jennifer came out, told Katie to leave and stay out of their lives.

At the Snyder farm, Craig told Rosanna that he got Paul to agree to get Emily not to file charges against her. He told her that Paul doesn't understand Rosanna the way he does. Then, Craig received a phone call from Katie telling him to meet her at the Lakeview, so he left. Carly came outside and saw Rosanna, who told her about Craig getting Paul to stop Emily from pressing charges against her. Carly said that was a good sign and told Rosanna that it meant there was still a possibility of her reuniting with Paul. She told Rosanna to fight for Paul the way Rosanna helped her fight for Jack. After Rosanna left for the second time, Parker came downstairs and told his mom that he'd had a dream "about Aunt Rosanna and Cabot" and that Rosanna "is still sad about Cabot." Carly agreed, and Parker said that perhaps Paul could make her laugh, because "he's good at that."

Mike and Jennifer told Katie to stay out of the whole business with the baby and Craig. Jennifer was glad that Mike took her side in front of Katie, even though she knew he agreed with Katie that Craig does have legal rights as the father of her baby. They went to a doctor appointment, to have a sonogram done, but Mike was called away on an emergency visit to the Lakeview by Lisa, who told him the water pipes had burst at the Lakeview. Meanwhile, Katie went to the Lakeview to meet Craig, to tell him about her failed mission to convince Mike and Jennifer to let him be involved with the baby. Katie mentioned that Mike and Jennifer had been on their way to a doctor appointment, and Craig immediately began saying he was concerned whether something was wrong with the baby. Katie tried to assure him that nothing seemed amiss to her, and she even told Craig that she didn't know which doctor they were seeing because Jennifer had changed doctors after finding out that Katie had read her chart at the doctor's office. Craig left, telling Katie they would have dinner one night this week, because it was harder to be alone at night than during the day. As Katie got up to leave, she ran into Mike, who accused her of having arranged to have Lisa call him to get him to come to the Lakeview. He told her to get a life of her own, and she told him to go to hell.

At the doctor's appointment, Jennifer got to see the baby on the sonogram and was trying to decide whether to find out if it was a boy or a girl when the doctor was called away for an emergency consultation on the phone. A nurse came in and said the baby's father had arrived, and Jennifer excitedly called out to Mike to come in, but instead, Craig walked into the examining room.

Will went to see Gwen at her room above the garage, and he told her she couldn't possibly continue to live that way, especially with a baby on the way. He tried to convince her that she should tell Casey that she's pregnant, but Gwen accused him of wanting to do that just to break up Casey and Celia so that Will could pursue Celia. Will denied that and said Gwen didn't need to be alone during and after this pregnancy, but Gwen told Will the one thing she could not do was tell Casey she was pregnant only to have his first words be, "Is it mine?" which Will agreed was a likely scenario. Gwen said her parents were not in the picture, and she didn't want Casey's family to know about the pregnancy and look at her as "Casey's mistake," but that she was strong and could survive on her own. Will told Gwen it was soon going to be impossible for her to hide the pregnancy, unless she stayed in her room every day, so he still thought telling Casey was the best approach. Will lectured Gwen about smoking during the pregnancy, then he gave her his phone number and told her to call him if she needed anything, but she told him that she was through being anyone's problem and crumpled the piece of paper and threw it away.

Celia, Casey, and Tom went to the hospital to have Casey checked out again since he'd developed a bad headache. Tom told Celia that he might end up prosecuting the girls who set up the bucket prank at the prom, but he'd do it in a way that would keep Celia safe. He told her to consider his family to be her family while she was in Oakdale. Tom left Celia and Casey alone in the hospital room, and they kissed, but Celia fantasized about it being Will she was kissing. Casey talked about taking Celia to the prom again the next year, and she became upset, telling him you can't plan on things that far ahead because the unexpected often happens, but Casey gave her his bracelet and told her he'd still be with her next year, if she'd still have him. Later, while Casey was out of the room having tests done, Will arrived for a visit, and Celia walked into the room. Will said he had something he needed to tell Casey, and Celia told him that if there was something bothering him that he needed to talk about, he could tell her.

At Paul's place, Emily reacted badly to Paul's suggestion that she not press charges against Rosanna, and she screamed at him, but then she kissed him, and they ended up making love. Emily told Paul she had no regrets. Paul told Emily that he'd never forgotten their first time together, years ago, which was his first time with any woman. He told Emily that she turned out alright, but that he wished he had a "do-over," because he'd have killed his father when he had the chance, and things would have turned out better for everyone. Emily told him not to talk about James, and she told him she would focus on what he'd done right today. As she left, Emily ran into Rosanna in the hallway.
