Meanwhile, David and Paige commiserate over their mutual disappointment that Spencer is in town. Kelly happens upon them and is shocked to discover that they even know one another. David uses humor to play down the situation, and is let off the hook when his cell phone rings. Kelly sits down with Paige, who tells her that Spencer once got a promotion that she deserved. Kelly tells Paige that she finds Spencer attractive, and Paige warns her that the doctor is not what he appears.

Evangeline walks in on John and Natalie's innocent hug and struggles to hold back tears. She tells them that the least they could have done would be to shut the door. She rips into Natalie for throwing herself at John, and when Natalie tries to defend herself, Van tells her to shut up and calls her "Princess." Van asks John if anything he's ever told her is true, and he futilely tries to explain herself. Van vows that she's not going to cry in front of them and throws John's key down on the table. She storms out and heads to Capricorn to drink away the pain. Kevin is at Capricorn, talking to Antonio about Duke and Adriana's disappearance. When Antonio leaves Kevin to do some spying on R.J., Evangeline joins the former lieutenant governor for a drink. They bemoan their current romantic states and engage in minor flirtation. Back at his hotel room, John sorrowfully looks at an old newspaper clipping announcing his father's death in the line of duty.

Todd brings Tess home to Llanfair, where Viki comes downstairs in her robe, evidently not feeling well. Todd tells Tess that she is going to confess who she is to Viki. Tess starts screaming at Todd, who in turn calls her a slut. Viki cannot believe what she is hearing, since Jessica never uses this kind of language, and Todd would never speak to his niece in such a fashion. She grows increasingly shaky and demands that Jessie let her know what is wrong; she insists she can handle anything. Tess tries to go upstairs to bed, but Todd grabs her ... Tess tells him to take his "rapist hands" off of her. Viki demands that they stop their fighting, and Tess finally explodes. She screams at Viki, telling her that everything that is wrong in her life, including the medication and the past few months of being off kilter, is all Viki's fault. Viki is puzzled and heartbroken, but Tess continues her tirade. She calls Viki "Princess Victoria" and blames her for how messed up she is. As Todd once again grabs Tess and tells her to stop insulting Viki, Viki goes into coronary arrest. While Todd and Tess continue to argue, Viki suffers a massive heart attack and falls to the floor unnoticed. Todd turns to discover his fallen sister and rushes to her side. He asks Tess to call 911, but she laughs in his face and walks off.

An ambulance eventually arrives at Llanfair, and Todd calls the relatives. Natalie, Kevin, Kelly, Bo, and Todd race to the hospital, where Viki is taken to the E.R. The family wonders what set off this heart attack ... Todd remains silent. Meanwhile, Tess lays down on the kitchen table at Llanfair and chants in a singsong voice: "Mama had a heart attack, I'm not taking Antonio back."

Paige is the attending physician for Viki, and Spencer arrives just after Viki is wheeled into the E.R. Paige reluctantly informs Dr. Truman of Viki's condition, and he immediately changes the subject to her feelings towards Bo. Spencer taunts Paige about her secret: the fact that they were once married!

Lindsay is sponsoring a fundraiser for leukemia at the gallery. Kelly asks her if she's okay taking on such a task, and Lindsay says that she wants to do it for Jen. She knows Jen would have been proud of her. Spencer mingles with the guests at the fundraiser, while Kevin tries to pretend to Kelly that he's not jealous.

R.J. arrives at the gallery, and Lindsay grills him for information about Antonio. She offers R.J. a loan, but he refuses to accept any money. He insists that losing Capricorn is just a minor setback, and that he will pay Antonio back for his actions. Lindsay warns R.J. to stay clean, because they both worked so hard to leave their criminal pasts behind. Meanwhile, as the guests filter out of the fundraiser, Kevin plants a long, lingering kiss on Kelly as Spencer watches. Kevin walks off, and David saunters over to Kelly, expressing his desire that she "stay with Kevin." Spencer taunts Paige, who is worried that Nora will share her secret with Bo.

Bo, Nora, and Evangeline head to court, where Van is petitioning for the legal name change. The judge brings up the old DNA results that Lindsay forged, and Nora steps forward to speak. She explains how stupid she feels over what happened with Daniel Colson, but reminds the judge that she and Bo owe some kind of peace to Matthew.
