After a long weekend of suspense, we find Sheridan and Luis still at each other's throats. Luis continues to run into Sheridan at every turn despite his attempts to avoid her altogether. At the coffee shop, Luis reunites with Beth, a new character that is revealed to us as his old girlfriend from high school. Beth has the misfortune of witnessing a confrontation between the rich lady the law man as they play Chip N Dale over the last blueberry muffin in the shop. When the two of them have more harsh words, they are sure they have seen the last of one another for the day. NOT! Before she can leave the youth center, she is introduced to the director, whom is none other than Officer Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald.

This comes as a shock to her as up to this point she is being led to believe that the man she is speaking with is the director. Hank Bennett, the younger brother of police chief Sam Bennett has blown back into town and crossed the path of Ms. Crane. The conversation is laced with hints that little brother Hank has led a less than perfect life. He had been referred to as the "prodigal brother" by Sam and been welcomed back to Harmony after what has apparently been a long absence. Sam seems less than delighted at his brother's arrival in town. Hank claims that he has changed, for the better. Meanwhile, he has managed to charm Sheridan almost as much as Luis. After fixing her car, Hank manages to run into Sheridan several more times that day. At the youth center where he practically has her donating money in lieu of her community service before she is surprised by Luis. Sheridan's day has become almost comical as she takes turns running into both of these men back and forth. Little does she know that Hank Bennett is making plans for the two of them. Nor does she realize that the two of them are old friends, both falling for her.

Miguel is happy to see Charity another time before she is forced to move. She offers him her lucky charm necklace to remember her by. Her mother, Faith, calls the Bennett home and speaks again to Grace. Concerned for her daughter, Faith takes comfort in the stranger's words again regarding her daughter's safety. Grace sends Jessica over to Miguel's to let her know her mother is looking for her. Jessica is delighted to see Charity and Miguel together again as she knows how much her sister Kay wants him to herself. She offers to take them back to her house to speak to Grace. She knows of course that her mother is not home, but at the shop. Miguel is in for a surprise.

Meanwhile, at the Bennett home, Kay and Simone are busy making Kay over with a new hair color and a facial. Kay is happy because she has gotten even with her sister for bringing Miguel and Charity back together. She sent an e-mail to Mrs. Crump, a hateful old teacher that Jessica doesn't care for. The e-mail is a message to Mrs. Crump begging her to put Jessica into her class. She returns the message to Jessica confirming her enrollment. Jessica is furious at her sister's actions. When she sees the two love birds together, she brings them home to say hello to Kay. Kay is now covered in a mud mask; her hair is curled up in aluminum foil as she dreams of Miguel confessing his feelings for her, now that she is blonde, like Charity. As she awakens from her daydream, Kay is ready to see her new look. Unfortunately, Simone is no hair stylist, and her hair is falling out in large clumps. She begins screaming in fright. Enter Charity and Miguel!

Faith is about to log on to the computer to look for her sister. Grace has a flashback of childhood with her and a twin playing a game. She passes out on the floor of the shop until Sam comes in and finds her. Together they log on and enter the chat room. He sees that "SEEKER" is in and they begin to ask questions. Grace is told that she has family and it is 'SEEKER"

Frank tried to convince both Ethan and his mother, Ivy, that Theresa and Whitney were hiding information and protecting the stalker. Theresa and Whitney both were scared that he would expose them to the Cranes. Theresa managed to fake passing out and Whitney took her to put cold water on her face. While they were out of the room they agreed that they would continue to tell the same story of how the girl that Frank was looking for had moved with her family to South America. Finally Ethan and Ivy told Frank to leave the girls alone that neither of them would complicate the investigation. The girls drew a sigh of relief, but Frank obviously was not convinced that they were lying about the stalker.

Luis and Sheridan continued to argue at the youth center and Luis tried to change her community service to anywhere but there. The judge refused to change Sheridan's location and they are now stuck working together throughout her 100 hours. Hank did ask her out to eat at the Lobster Shack and she accepted. He attempted to make peace between the feuding duo, but was unable to succeed. Hank suggested that Sheridan be allowed to make the donation to the center, but Luis blew up at the idea and Sheridan tore up the check she had written out. Despite their protest, it is obvious that they are drawn to one another.

Grace went online again and was connected with Seeker. Upon asking more questions, Grace discovered that Seeker was actually her long lost twin sister, Faith. They exchanged information and realized that they were in adjoining towns and near to one another. Faith realized that Grace was really her sister and advised her of the evil forces that had separated them and that were near her in Harmony.

Miguel and Charity were at the Bennett home where they were all brainstorming ways of finding Charity's aunt. Kay was doing everything she could to create trouble and offer negative comments on the chances that she would ever find her long lost aunt. It was Simone who finally realized that Grace was Charity's aunt, even though Charity has never mentioned her aunt's name outloud. Simone told Kay of her suspicions that her mother was the sister, but Kay thought it was ridiculous. Simone also pointed out that Grace and Charity had never looked at one another face to face and that during every one of Charity's visits that the two of them kept missing one another. Kay became upset at the thought that Charity might actually be her own cousin and became even more convinced that Charity and her mother must not meet, just in case. Jessica attempts to tell her mother about Charity, but Sam tells her she is too busy and to bring Miguel and Charity by at a later time. Jessica leaves as her mother is communicating online to her sister.

Timmy was in mourning at finding Tabitha lifeless on the floor. He attempted to awaken her with no luck. Convinced that his maker was dead, he sat and remembered their most bonding times together as the music played. Scenes flashed back as Timmy recalled being thrown from the bike onto the payment, being put in the dryer going round and round, attacking the girl in the park, being rescued from the water, the objects in the tent and he and Tabby floating in the air, the celebration dance of Timmy and Tabby upon realizing Charity was gone, and other times he spent with Tabitha. It was comical that most of Timmy's memories were of him being mistreated by the witch, but after all, she's all Timmy has, she was his reason for living. He jumps out of his daydream and tries to perform CPR on Tabby with no results. The pulls out a Timmy sized baby grand piano and plays Auld Lang Syne. Finally he snaps and realized that without Tabitha to protect him and with Charity next door, he must make tracks. He packs and says his final good-byes to Tabby. Just as he is ready to leave, Tabitha wakes up and he screams outload, "She's alive, alive!" They discuss Charity's return to Harmony and Tabitha sets out to keep her from running into her Aunt Grace.
