Meanwhile, Arianna orders Eve to keep her distance from Ian before the INS uncovers proof that the Thornharts' marriage was a ploy to avoid deportation.

As Sam brought several of her pals down to the bike shop, Jamal is peeved to see Zach saunter back into his life.

Kevin takes Lucy for a spin on his new motorcycle. Returning to the Recovery Room afterwards, Kevin is irked to see Jack getting chummy with Sam. Looking for a sympathetic shoulder, Livvie drops by Chris' place unannounced but he hastily gives her the bum's rush while Eve passes out on the floor. With Frank away for a while, Karen decides to compose a message of her own for "Nellie".
