At the Lighthouse, Paige admits to Kevin that she DID die in the accident with her husband and Kevin asks her WHY she came back.
Outside the Recovery Room, Jamal is getting beaten up, but Casey comes to the rescue. As Casey distracts J.D., Ricky sneaks up behind him and holds a knife to his throat to stop the beating.
Elsewhere in the Park, Amy says: "Don't worry, Papa. I haven't forgotten and I never will. Ian Thornhart will suffer. I'll make sure of that. And he'll die! Who's there?'
ED: Could be your conscience - IF you had one!
AMY: Ed - WHAT do you want?
ED: I want to have a little chat about your plans for Dr. Thornhart.
Meanwhile, at Harris' compound, as Ian and Eve talk about their troubled marriage, Ian states: "If we're going to have a shot at this marriage, we have to say exactly what's on our minds.'
EVE: I'm not sure that's such a good idea.
IAN: Nothing else is working. I want to hear exactly how you feel about things.
Eve slaps him: "That's for sleeping with Lucy!'
Outside the Recovery Room, J.D. gets away and Ricky chases him - but is startled by a sound in the bushes.
At Harris' compound, Eve admits to Ian that his affair with Lucy revived all sorts of insecurities she thought she had overcome. Then she asks Ian what he REALLY feels about Amy and Ian admits he was attracted to Amy. 'Is this ALWAYS going to stand between us?' he asks.
Back at the Park, Ed says to Amy: 'So, I'm wrong about you and Ian. You don't blame him for your father's death?'
AMY: My father was too ill by the time Ian got to him.
ED: Not planning any revenge?
AMY: I just want to go home and soak in a nice hot bath and forget...
ED: Amy - do you know how you can see people's character by touching their face? Well, I went deep down and touched your soul. Not really a nice place.
AMY: Then why did you let me come back if you think I'm such a big sinner?
ED: If I had my way, you wouldn't have.
AMY: Then that must mean you couldn't stop me - even if I DID come back for revenge!
ED: Amy - Cut the bull! Now we both know you came back to kill Ian.
AMY: You! Get off my back and let me finish what I've come here to do.
At the Lighthouse, at Kevin's request, Paige describes for him her experience with dying and finishes by admitting to Kevin that 'I came back because of you.' But Kevin wants to know if Paige came back BECAUSE of him - or FOR him.
At the Park, Amy told Ed: "I can and I will kill Ian Thornhart for what he did to my father. And if I have to pay for the rest of eternity, it'll be worth it to avenge my father's death.
ED: Avenge your father's death? You sound like a kid doing Shakespeare in a high school play!
AMY: My father was suffering and he wanted Ian to help him but the great Dr. Thornhart just left him to die.
ED: That's NOT what happened, Amy, and you damned well know it. I got the paperwork to prove it. Ian killed your father in self-defense.
AMY: My father was a good man. He was a tough man and strong-willed, but that does NOT make him evil!
ED: Excuse me, if your father was such a good man - such a prince - how come he set his daughter on a course that ended her life?
AMY: He loved me.
ED: He filled your heart with hatred and anger and you hired a hit man to kill Ian - Only that is NOT what happened! The trigger man wasn't stupid. He took your money and shot you.
AMY: So now I'm finishing the job myself.
ED: Not going to be so easy - now that you've fallen in love with Ian.
AMY: You're crazy. I don't know what you're talking about.
ED: Oh, yeah. You DO! Complicates things a bit, doesn't it?
Meanwhile, at Harris' compound, as Ian and Even continue to try to sort out their problems, Ian told Eve: "There's no middle ground! We either leave EVERYthing behind us and love each other the way we used to. OR we go our separate ways. It's YOUR call, Lambert!
Outside the Recovery Room, Jamal and Casey search for Ricky as Casey unconsciously grasps the key she has around her neck. Then, suddenly, they hear Ricky moan from the grass and rush to help him.
At the Lighthouse, Kevin asks about Paige's statements at Christina's bedside and Paige reassures Kevin that she just wanted Christina to feel a little less afraid. Kevin admits that Paige DOES have a soothing presence - but that would be logical IF she's an angel.
PAIGE: Well, we're in the process of BECOMING angels.
KEVIN: WE? Is Amy one too?
Paige immediately reminds Kevin that he can't tell anyone what he has guessed about there being OTHER angels in Port Charles. Paige explains her transition to Kevin by telling him that it was like existing in the purest light. And Kevin excitedly told Paige that THAT was how he painted her - in the light. Then Kevin sees Paige again in the light and told her: 'It's like now I could follow you anywhere.' Paige holds her hand out to Ian and Ian takes her hand as they are BOTH bathed in white light. Meanwhile, at the Park, Ed says to Amy: 'Ian got to you.'
AMY: No one gets to me.
ED: Oh, but he DID! Only you can't admit it because of some mixed up sense of loyalty to that miserable excuse for a parent.
AMY: How could I be in love with the man who killed my father? It was all a part of my plan - pretending to be interested in Ian.
ED: Oh, you're such a tough nut, Amy. Here you say you hate Ian, want him dead. You've been back ten weeks now but Ian is STILL breathing! You COULD have killed him a dozen times but you didn't.
AMY: I wanted to make him suffer first. The way my father suffered. My father was my whole world and Ian took him from me.
ED: Daddy Dearest brought his death on himself.
AMY: And now Ian is going to die as my present to my father - on his birthday. THEN, my journey WILL be complete.
ED: Oh, Amy, Think about this carefully. Do you know what you really want? Do you know who you really are? OR are you just doing your father's bidding?
AMY: I have to kill Ian. He killed my father.
ED: The man who showed you kindness? Who opened your heart?
AMY: That's what you think. But I do NOT love Ian!
ED: It's no crime to love someone. It's one of God's greatest gifts. Maybe that's why you came back - to find out if love is possible for everyone. EVEN you? Ed leaves.
At Harris' compound, Ian asks Eve: "HAVE you STOPPED loving me?
EVE: I wish I could
Eve and Ian reconcile and hit the sheets in the very place where they had been trapped and afraid for their lives more than a year ago.
Lucy walked in on Kevin transfixed by Paige and demanded to know what
was going on so Paige told Lucy what she was and Lucy fainted. Ricky was
badly injured but refused to go to the hospital. Casey cared for Ricky
while Jamal looked for Frank. Alison caught Rafe asking to go back to
heaven to find out who was going to die. She offered to go with Rafe and
they both vanished in a flash of light. Lucy almost destroyed Kevin's
painting but he insisted he would finish it. Jamal found Ricky gone when
he returned with Frank. They went to look for him but Casey had him
hidden. Lucy insisted that Kevin finish the painting immediately so
Paige could leave. Rafe found the "big book" and Alison's name was in
Ian finds Amy at the park. When she asks what he did on his day off, Ian told her he took Eve to Harris's compound - the place they were held while they were kidnapped. When Amy asks why, Ian explains that he and Eve had to deal with what has happened to their marriage. They ended up talking about a lot of things including talking about Ian's attraction to Amy. Amy is surprised when Ian thanks her for inspiring him to be more straightforward.
Ian and Amy's conversation is interrupted when he gets a message on his pager to meet Eve at the hospital. Before leaving, Ian asks Amy if she would like to have dinner so they could continue their conversation. She accepts then practically dances with joy wondering if Ian could possibly be falling in love with her. Almost immediately, Amy remembers the promise she made to her father. She prays for him to understand that she can't go through with her plan for revenge because she and Ian love each other.
At the hospital, Eve told Karen that she and Ian have fallen in love all over again. From now on it will be "happily ever after" and nothing or no one will come between them ever again. Ian finally appears. He told Eve that he ran into Amy at the park and invited her to have dinner with them.
Alison and Rafe are in Heaven. They find the Book of Records and look inside. Alison sees her name listed. She will be the one to occupy the 5th chair. She sits down in the chair as Rafe screams at her to get up. Suddenly Rafe wakes up, still screaming. Alison told him it's all right; he just had a bad dream. After a while, Rafe begins to calm down. Alison gently prods him to tell her about his dream. He told her some, but not the part about seeing her name in the Book of Records.
Even after a cup of Alison's special extra chocolately hot chocolate, Rafe is still disturbed over his dream. A worried Alison guesses what it is that has made him upset. She figures out that he must have dreamt that she would be the one to die. Alison assures Rafe that everything will be ok. All they have is the present moment and the only thing that scares her is wasting any time that they do have together.
Meanwhile, in Heaven, Ed is reading the Book of Records. He sighs, "What a shame...so young, so vital, so little time left to live."
Determined to send Paige on her merry way as soon as possible, Lucy orders the lighthouse's resident angel to join her for a Tarot card reading. As Jamal and Frank continue their search, Casey helps Ricky hide in the Scanlons' basement. Armed with a picnic lunch, Alison and Rafe head back to the barn where they first made love but are met by a pair of pitchfork-toting youngsters. After getting a closer look at Ricky's wounds, Casey fears that her feverish friend is on the way out. Bernie and Sara explain to Rafe and Alison that they're best friends who ran away from home because they don't want to be separated when one of their families moves away. Lucy does her Tarot reading and turns over cards featuring an angel and a young girl. Later, Lucy told a skeptical Paige that she isn't the last one in her family after all. Alison and Rafe encourage their new pals to believe that even great distances can't keep true friends apart. Casey finally summons help for Ricky, then prays that it's not too late to save him from the fifth chair. Alison asks Rafe to marry her.
At the Recovery Room, Amy remembers Ian telling her that he had told Eve he was attracted to Amy, as Amy blissfully prepares for her 'dinner date' with Ian - and is thrilled to find that Ian IS waiting there to have dinner with her.
In the meantime, at the hospital, an equally blissful Eve excitedly told Karen about her plans for a romantic-family getaway with Ian and Daniel, just as Frank runs up with the news that Gabriela's brother and Casey's friend - Ricky - has been badly hurt and has been stashed in a empty room. When Eve asks why Ricky was NOT taken to the Emergency Room, Frank replies that Ricky refused to go - it had something to do with being worried about getting in trouble with his parole officer. Once the doctors arrive at the Luxury Suite, Ricky insists that he is going to be OK, but, he turns to Casey and told his pal: 'I'll never forgive you - you turned me in!'
Meanwhile, at the Barn, Rafe and Alison talk about their love and Alison insists that she wants something to hold on to - to remember, once Rafe is gone. Saying that his love has changed her, Alison told Rafe that she wants to make a vow that their hearts will always be joined - no matter what happens.
At the Recovery Room, Chris hovers over Jack's shoulder as Jack enlarges a re-imaged picture of the fuzzy man standing behind Amy in the photo. Chris told Jack that he thinks it MIGHT be Amy's father and that Chris' recollection is that the photo was of a parents' weekend at college.
As Chris and Jack look across the room, Ian is holding Amy's hand, but, when she wonders WHY Ian is so bold as to hold her hand in public, Ian quickly pulls away and then begins to tell Amy how grateful he is to her - that he would have lost everything that mattered to him if it had not been for her. Then Ian drops the bombshell that Amy has saved his marriage and family, as a shaken Amy appears to be reeling from the news.
In the meanwhile, Rafe has left the barn to hunt up some flowers and, when he returns, he told Alison that he is sorry that - without his powers - he can NOT really produce the same kind of magic he worked for Lucy and Kevin's wedding, but Alison assures him she does NOT need anything fancy, and Rafe sends Alison behind a pile of hay as he prepares the barn for their nuptials.
At the hospital, Casey and Frank watch as Eve and Karen fix Ricky up and Karen mentions that, if Ricky had waited a couple of more hours after the infection set in, they'd be visiting him in the morgue. However, as they all insist that Ricky needs to stick around to have the plastic surgeon take a look at his face, Ricky shakes them all off and prepares to leave.
Colleen brought some vacation brochures to Eve while, over at the Recovery Room,Chris and Jack have managed to come up with a clear picture of Harris - whom neither of them would recognize. Jack asks if this is for one of Chris's scams, but Chris insists that he is just doing a favor for a friend - then asks Jack to save the picture to the disc and Jack hands the disc to Chris.
CHRIS: I owe you one.
JACK: Yeah - you DO!
And Chris hurries off, with the enlarged photo in his hand and the disc in his pocket.
Across the room, Ian told a flabbergasted Amy that he and Eve have reconciled, telling his 'friend' that it was 'our true love that helped us defeat Harris.' A shaken Amy gets up and announces that she was mistaken about everything. When Ian tries to discover what is suddenly troubling Amy, Amy shouts out" 'Get away from me. I hate you!'
At the Barn, Rafe finally pronounces his preparations complete, and asks Alison to join him in a circle of stones he has put down in the center of the barn. Then, tenderly taking Alison's hand, Rafe begins to tell her all that is in his heat.
RAFE: 'I came here an angel, blessed by an angel's powers. But I will leave here a man - much more blessed by your love. People say there are only angels in heaven, but I've been here and there. And I know better. You see, angels live in the hearts of those who dare to love. And how lucky am I to meet the most incredible angel of all.'
As he kisses her, Alison reminds him that he is NOT supposed to do that until AFTER their vows.
RAFE: 'People spend forever, searching and looking on a journey to nowhere. And, you know what? That COULD have been me - except I found you. And, now, I know my journey began - and is going to end - with you. If you're wondering about the circle of stones - I didn't have a ring to give you, but the circle of stones represent the bond of our love - an infinite circle, without beginning or end - never to be broken. Alison Barrington, I promise that I will carry our love with me forever and we will be joined together as one from now and into eternity.'
ALISON: 'And I promise you, Rafe Kovich, to carry your love with me forever. My heart and soul belong to you, now and through eternity.'
RAFE: 'And now, underneath the eyes of God, we belong to each other.'
ALISON: 'NOW you may kiss the bride.' And their seal their vows with a kiss.
At the Recovery Room, an emotional Amy told Ian that she misunderstood his intent, as Ian tries to apologize for not realizing that she had misinterpreted what he had to say - because he was so anxious to give her his good news.
But Amy told him that she does NOT want him to be sorry and insists that the misunderstanding is really NOT his fault. Then Amy concludes by saying: 'It's better this way. You SHOULD get what you deserve,' as she kisses him and then turns to leave hastily.
In the Luxury Suite, as Karen insists to Ricky that he needs surgery, Ricky prepares to leave anyway, until he catches a glimpse of his torn-up face in the mirror.
Back at the barn, as Alison and Rafe kiss, the carving that Bernie and Sarah made on the post in the barn suddenly disappears, so that the only carving left is the one that Alison and Rafe made. When Alison mentions the strange way Bernie and Sarah had ALSO considered the Barn to be THEIR special place, Rafe told her to think of it as a 'gift out of nowhere.'
In the Park, Amy says: 'I was such a fool,' as her father, Harris, suddenly appears beside her.
HARRIS: 'I told you who he was, sweetheart. I guess you just had to find out for yourself.'
AMY: 'You were right. You were right, Papa. You were SO right. But don't worry. I'm NOT going to be fooled again. I'll make SURE Ian pays - for the BOTH of us!'
Meanwhile, at the hospital, Chris puts his enlarged photo of Harris in an envelope for Eve.
CHRIS: Alright, Amy. Why don't you want anyone to see this picture? And WHO is this guy? Is he involved in this? I got a hunch he might be - JUST a hunch.'
As Eve comes by, Chris insists that she SHOULD take time for this - that he had the picture of Amy in Philadelphia enlarged and urges Eve to look at it. "I think the answer to what she's been hiding is in here.'
EVE: 'What answer?'
CHRIS: 'You tell me,' as he hands the envelope to Eve.
