She responds by calling him selfish and the couple realize that they are not in the mood to argue any longer. Eve is furious to learn that Ian overheard the argument. She asks his advice and Ian admits that he agrees with Kevin. Later, Kevin and Eve admit that their love is more important and put the argument behind them.

Scott meets "Charlie" for the first time when he shows up at the hotel to escort Lucy to the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new GH Community Clinic. Neil is very excited to see Joe at the hospital after he returns from baseball camp. Courtney is obviously very uncomfortable about the two being near each other.

Scott expresses concern about their family, but Lucy still isn't ready to rebuild. He also expresses concern about Lucy's well being while she's busy helping others.

Lucy and Scott spend a nice evening together talking about old times. Lucy seems very happy, and her and Scott seem to be connecting like before the kidnapping.

As it looks like Lucy is going to give in to her emotions, and tell Scott she wants to come home, she pulls back from Scott and leaves.

Chris visits Estelle and pretends to be a friend of Rachel's and schemes to fool her into revealing Rachel and Livvie's secret. Estelle falls for it, and starts talking about Grace and her death. She describes her drowning in detail, blaming Kevin for her murder. Chris asks her couldn't it have been an accident and she told him no. She rambles on about Rachel, Livvie and Grace, saying that Livvie could never learn the family secret. Chris promises he will never tell, all the while wondering what the family secret could be. Meanwhile, Kevin is trying to comfort Livvie, who is upset about the nightmares she keeps having about drowning. She told him the details of her dream, which are eerily similar to the scenario Estelle is giving to Chris about Graces death. Kevin tries to comfort her, but she gets angry and told him to leave.

Chris keeps pressing Estelle for more and more details, and she starts getting upset. She told Chris that he has to keep Kevin away from Livvie. Chris agrees, saying he will try to keep her from finding out that Kevin killed her aunt. Then Estelle told Chris that Grace isn't Livvie's aunt --- she is Livvie's mother.
