Eager to get a ride, Kevin stepped out in the middle of the road to flag down huge semi. The driver gave them a ride to a restaurant so that they could make arrangements to get home. While they waited Kevin and Lucy continued to discuss the possibility of Lucy being of vampire decent. Kevin then saw someone using a laptop computer and posed as an FBI agent to have access to it. He began tracing Lucy's family tree, but was quickly frustrated by error messages and then gave up when he lost his connection. He left to phone Victor and Lucy gave it a try. She was able to reconnect and trace the CEO family back to Eastern Europe. She was then astonished when she found that her great, great, great grandmother was from Transylvania.

Eve told Michael that she knew he could stop Caleb, and when he told her that he couldn't do anything this time she then told him how she had overheard his prayer confessing that he had fallen in love with her. He first denied it, telling her that he loved her as a friend. Eve told Michael that she could not get Caleb's threats out of her mind, and that he had to help her protect her baby. As she began to cry, he hesitated, but then hugged her to try to comfort her. Michael then apologized to Eve and confessed to her that her was in love with her. He looked up to see Ian standing in the doorway of the chapel.

Alison and Jamal went to the lighthouse to see Livvie. A brainwashed Livvie told them how wrong they where about Caleb, that he was kind and gentle and even brought her mother to see her. Jack, Jamal and Alison could not believe it when she told them that Rachel was fully recovered, and had even given her blessing to her marriage to Caleb. Desperate to break Caleb's spell, Jack took Livvie to see Rachel at the Sanitarium. Livvie was confused by the nurse's comment about Rachel never receiving visitors, and that Estelle has even stopped coming because her condition had not improved. She entered the room to find Rachel lying in her bed in a catatonic state. As Livvie tried to talk to Rachel, she was disturbed to see her so unresponsive after "seeing" her well and looking better than ever just the day before. Jack opened his arms to comfort her, but she angrily walked past him and out of Rachel's room.

Jamal went to visit Gaby taking with him some of his Mother's pictures. She let him know that she was not happy to see him. He told her that family was family and he would stand by her no matter what. He showed her a picture of him as a young boy and told her that he was sorry they didn't get to grow up together. She coldly asked him what she was supposed to do with a bunch of old pictures. He told her that it didn't matter what she did with them, but like it or not, he would be back. She ignored him and pretended not to care about the pictures, but then went over to get them as soon as Jamal had left.
