Duke is enchanted upon meeting Adriana but confesses he saw her earlier. While stuck in traffic en route to Asa's place, he saw her in Angel Square and took her picture with his digital camera. He asks her out but is quickly stopped dead in his tracks when Dorian comes upon them. Making light of it, she advises him that Adriana will be too busy. She shows him the door but not before remembering to ask him to defend Kelly at her upcoming hearing. She orders her daughter to stay away from him as a Buchanan will only bring her misery. David returns home and Dorian fills him in on the unsuccessful Cramer get-together as well as Duke hitting on Adriana. She apprises him of Kelly's upcoming trial that Duke may testify at when David offers to go after him and suggests they be nice to him until afterwards.

A snitch named Ravi visits John at the police station; for $20 he offers to give him a tip on the upcoming heist involving Paul Cramer. With that being the only information that he has, John gives him $5.

Carlotta begs for Antonio's life; a shot rings out but it's not Antonio who falls. A gunfight ensues as men enter and take off after the felons and Antonio is able to retrieve a gun as well. An hysterical Carlotta insists that she knows nothing about the sequence of events that led up to the present, only that she received a note that Antonio was in Puerto Rico. She was grabbed by some men when she arrived. One of the rescuers is Antonio's friend, Emilio, who is shocked to learn about Antonio's handprint obtaining the Santi millions. He regretfully advises Antonio that he will not be able to remain behind to investigate when Carlotta leaves; the FBI is insisting that he return to Llanview.

Sonia quickly attempts to replace the CD and other items out of place at R.J.'s but he returns to the room too soon. Making up a story and then changing the subject seems to work but after she leaves, it's obvious that R.J. is suspicious. Soon after, Ravi arrives with the news that he wasn't followed and he's clear on what has to be done. R.J. threatens him with death if things don't work out as planned. Sonia shows up at Tico's but as they await word, he receives a phone call and takes off angrily.

At Rodi's, Marcie unintentionally hears Rex filling Nat in on the latest heist details when she sits down at their table. The duo quickly covers up. When Marcie sees John later, she advises him that something is going to happen soon. He tries to get Nat to talk to him but they're promptly interrupted by Rex. The two have a verbal duel, sharing their mutual dislike of each other until John has to take a phone call. It's Antonio who familiarizes him with the situation in Puerto Rico. Mark meets up with Marcie and she introduces him to the bartender, Justin, who unmista.k.ably flirts with him. Marcie convinces Mark to ask him out; it's the first time and he's thrilled when Justin accepts. Rex reassures Nat. John returns to his pool game.

An angry Tico shows up at Dorian's, demanding to know about Adriana's supposed pregnancy and her obvious lack of supervision. An equally angry Dorian is incensed that Tico is aware of this privileged information and reminds him that she is the girl's mother and will handle everything herself. She orders Tico to provide her with his source, the person who divulged the information but he refuses. She does finally admit that Adriana is not pregnant. Interceding before the argument escalates even more, Adriana brings up Duke but Dorian would rather discuss the gala that Tico is throwing. Once he's gone, David and Dorian can't help wondering about all of the money that he's throwing around and wonder how he might have really obtained it.

Jessica is positive that something has happened to Antonio and takes off for Tico's residence. She expresses her fear about Antonio as Sonia denies knowing anything about what he has encountered or what may have happened to him. Jess doesn't believe her and informs her that she will hold the woman responsible if something has occurred. When Angelina shows after Sonia dashes off, Jess tries to get her to disclose some secret. She begins by talking about the peacefulness of Spain versus the busyness and intensity of America. Before she can continue Tico returns, adamantly stating that he has not heard from Antonio. When Antonio shows up suddenly, having returned from Puerto Rico, Tico is visibly annoyed. He remains so upon learning that Carlotta has been located as well. When Sonia returns, Antonio states that he wants to speak with the pair alone. He dismisses Jess abruptly and she takes off in tears. He informs his cousins that he saw and held 100 million dollars. Both Tico and Sonia appear perplexed as Antonio demands answers.

Duke slides his print of Adriana under the front door where she finds it. A crying Jess finds Nat at Rodi's.
