At the Port Charles Grill, Eve and Kevin are discussing DV. Eve is concerned about DV finding out the truth about her baby. She knows just how devious he is. After all he did wait for the most embarrassing moment to have Scotty arrested for stealing his plane. DV enters the bar as the two discuss him. Kevin chases him away. Eve decides that she needs to go splash water in her face. Before she can exit the lounge she bumps into her guardian angel. The entire room becomes empty except for her angel and herself. Eve asked if she died. The guardian angel assures her that she is very much alive and that he is here to help her fix this situation with DV. He starts by telling her that all of the answers can be found in fairy tales. He then describes three different fairy tales that symbolize important decisions that Eve has to make.

The first fairy tale is a portrayal of Humpty Dumpty. Eve is a huge egg sitting on top of a brick wall. She is admiring the beautiful sky when an evil cloud being portrayed by DV knocks her off the wall. Her rescuers are Scott, Kevin, and Chris. Try as they might, they were unable to put her back together again. She believes all is hopeless. Until Kevin reminds her that he said that they could not put her back, not that she could not put herself back together. A very happy Eve takes the glue and makes herself whole again. The moral being that only Eve can fix the emotional problems that she has inside.

The second fairy tale is a portrayal of The Emperor's New Clothes. Eve is a peasant woman who bumps into Kevin. Kevin is a cloth maker who has dreams of selling his beautiful cloth to he emperor. When the king, being portrayed by DV looks at Kevin's cloth he throws it to the ground, stomps on it, and finds it unworthy of his opinion. Kevin is devastated and stomps away. Eve seeing a chance to right a wrong asks the king if he likes her fabric. Eve holds out an imaginary piece of cloth. She told the King that only the most brave, honorable, intelligent and worthy of people can see the beautiful fabric. You see it has magical powers and any one who is not worthy can not see it. The king who obvious could not see it did not want to admit that he could not see it pretended that it was the most exquisite cloth that he has ever seen. He leaves to try it on. He returned out in his underwear. Kevin re-enters the scene and questions the king about the imaginary cloth. DV explains that only the intelligent and worthy can see the cloth. Kevin then responds that all he sees is the King's underwear and if the cloth were indeed magical he would be invisible to those who were unworthy. The entire village realized what a fool the king was and began to laugh. The king left the village defeated. Kevin thanks Eve. He told her that he would not have had the courage to face off the king if it were not for her. Moral of the story, if they work as a team, they will have the power and strength to defeat DV.

The third story is a very different rendition of Rumplestiltskin. Eve is a poor maiden who is trying to spin straw into gold for her father. Her father told the king that his daughter had the ability to create gold out of straw. Not wanting to see her father be imprisoned for lying, she makes a deal with a magical elf portrayed by DV. He agrees to make gold for her one more time if she will give her first born to him. Eve agrees. The next morning the king (Kevin) himself arrives to collect his gold. He explains that he really did not come for the gold but for her. He has been collecting this gold just to be close to her. The two agree to be married. After their first born child arrives, DV Stiltskin arrives for the baby. Eve does not want to give up her child. He makes her a deal. He told her that he will give her 3 days to figure out his name. For 2 days, she tried every name she could think of with no success. On the third morning a servant played by Frank arrives at her door. He explains that he saw a very weird man in the woods gloating how he was going to get the queen's baby. Eve asked if he per chance heard the man's name. The servant responded that he heard the name Ribbledith several times.

When DV Stiltskin arrived to take the baby, Eve replied, " Not so fast, for I have one more chance. Your name is Ribbledith." Gloated Eve. DV Stiltskin laughed; he had successfully tricked her. He paid Frank to give her misinformation. That way she would stop searching for the truth. He then took her child and disappeared.

Eve did not like the ending to that fairy tale. Ernie, the guardian angel informed her that if she did not like that ending, she could rewrite the story herself. Moral: All is not hopeless, She has the power to change the future.

Eve awoke from her trance and found that she was still standing in the same place. Kevin was calling her. He asked her why she was still standing there when he thought she was going to splash water in her face. Eve told him that the strangest thing just happened to her but she did not know how to explain it. He asked her if she would rather just go home. She said yes with a big smile. Kevin commented that it has been awhile since he has seen a smile like that out of her. She responded that every thing is going to be just fine.
