At Sheridan's Cottage
Luis and Hank sit anxiously awaiting to hear what Sheridan remembers under hypnosis. As Luis is pacing back and forth to Sheridan's bedroom door, Hank tells Luis, "Your wearing [your] heart on your sleeve!" Luis asks him,"What do you mean?" Hank reminds Luis about their past relationship and how Sheridan dumped him! Hank asks Luis if he still has feelings for Sheridan, if he thinks they can start all over with a clean slate? Luis answers,"Maybe I don't know, right now I don't think either one of us could commit to a relationship, that's why I never started one with Beth!" Hank is getting more and more upset, telling Luis, "What about me, it's my turn to try again with Sheridan because I love her! Luis can tell Hank is jealous and smiles. Luis says ,"Who knows, if Sheridan can remember something, I don't know what will happen, maybe we can start over."
Still under hypnosis, Sheridan tells Eve that she recognizes who's under the sheet! Eve asks her who it is, to which Sheridan cries out, "I killed Martin Fitzgerald! Luis will hate me!" Eve calms her down and asks her to remember what happened after she saw the person under the sheet. Sheridan says she remembers hearing someone talking downstairs. She said that she'd gotten up and headed downstairs. It was dark. "Julian kept telling me I didn't see any body --- that I was just having a nightmare, when I looked back down at the floor the body was gone!" she said softly. "They kept telling me," she continued, "that it was never there and that it was all in my mind! That's when they sent me away to Europe!" Eve explained to Sheridan that sometimes things do get mixed up. Luis is still pacing and says, "It's getting quiet in there!" Hank tells him, "Maybe their getting ready to wind down." Eve calms Sheridan and asks, "What happened after they told you you were just imagining this?" Sheridan answered, "They put me to bed and told me it would be better in the morning, but it wasn't; I was still telling them I saw the body, and that's when they sent me away." Suddenly Sheridan cries out ,"I remember now, they were all lying!" Back in the living room, Hank tells Luis,"After this she'll be ready for a relationship with me and not you." Luis replies, "I know it's against all odds, but I'll give it another try." Hank says, "Whatever she remembers they'll be the three of us to sort this out!" Sheridan tells Eve, "I remember because I hid on the landing of the stairwell, I could see them carrying out the coffin with Martin Fitzgerald's body in it. I killed him?" Eve is worried what this will do to Sheridan and Luis's relationship. Luis has a flashback of when Sheridan was teaching him the paso doble dance, and smiles when remembering kissing her. Hank asks, "You're thinking about Sheridan aren't you?!" Luis replies,"Yes, and I have a good feeling about this." Eve walks in and asks Hank and Luis to sit before she tells them what Sheridan said.

At the Russell Home
In the backyard, a possessed Charity asks Tabitha and Timmy ,"Where is the motorcycle?" Tabitha says, "Whoever took that bike will soon be dead!" Just then, Theresa is in a horrible accident. Miguel returns from looking for his motorcycle and guesses Theresa took it. Miguel asked Chad and Whitney if they'd seen Theresa. A possessed Charity tells Tabitha and Timmy, "This is all your fault, I should kill you right now! Now it's not Miguel that dies, but Theresa" Tabitha says, "How was I supposed to know Theresa would take it?" Evil Charity says,"Nevermind, we'll just have to come up with another plan to kill Miguel." Timmy says,"I'm going to put a stop to this right now", and jumps out of Tabitha's arms and grabs the pendant off of Charity. Miguel walks up and asks, "Did I just hear that doll speak? I could have sworn I heard him say something." Tabitha says,"It must have been the voice box! acting up that I sewed in his belly. Miguel noticed Charity's pendant is missing and asks her about it. Charity replies, "Lately I'm missing pieces of time." Miguel, "Maybe it's because of those premonitions you're having." Miguel looks at Timmy and notices he's holding the pendant. Tabitha nervously explains, "It must have falling on to Timmy when I was checking into my purse." Miguel takes it from Timmy and sees the clasp is broken and gives it back to Charity to be fixed. Out on the patio, Chad and Whitney are arguing. Whitney is furious at Chad and says, "If anything happens to Theresa, it's his fault." Ethan sits quietly remembering telling Theresa he didn't love her, and Chad telling him,"What if he's making the biggest mistake of his life marrying Gwen and not Theresa, the woman he loves." Simone and Kay discuss Chad and Whitney. Kay reassures Simone she has Chad and now she must help Kay get Miguel. Ethan asks Chad and Whitney if he heard them right. Whitney tells him, "You broke Theresa's heart." Chad reminds Ethan, "You're making a big mistake." Whitney says, "Stop it! We need to find Theresa right now." Ethan tells them,"I'll go look for her and to tell Gwen I'll be right back and that's all! Chad and Whitney continue to argue about Ethan and Gwen. Chad explains, "Sooner or later he'll have to come to terms with his true feelings!" Whitney is furious with Chad. Chad says, "I just tried to make Ethan aware, before he makes a mistake, he loves Theresa, not Gwen!" Gwen walks up and says, "I know exactly what's going on here! Chad and Whitney are shocked! Gwen thinks that Chad and Whitney have fallen in love and realizes Chad will hurt Simone. Whitney is stunned and walks into the house. Gwen realizes Chad hasn't told Whitney he's in love with her. Chad tells Gwen, "Some people just don't want to hear it and explains that Ethan left to look for Theresa. Gwen hopes she's alright. Chad says,"I'm sure everything will be okay." Gwen suggest Chad put on a song for Whitney that will suggest his feelings for her. He does and as Whitney walks out to talk to him, the phone rings and Kay jumps at the chance to send her to answer it. Kay then tells Chad she had a message from Whitney that she thought the song he put on was the sappiest song she ever heard. A sad Chad takes it off and Whitney is surprised when she walks out and hears the changed song. Kay brags she is good when she sees their sadden faces. Miguel wonders where Theresa is. Charity says she sees a death. Tabitha says under her breath, "She's probably spread out over 3 townships by now."

At the Accident
Theresa lies unconscious. The man who hit her said, "The motorcycle came out of nowhere." Witnesses call an ambulance. Ethan arrives after she was carried to the hospital. He asks the officer what happened. The officer said, "The girl was hit head on and wearing no helmet and has head trauma." The witness said, "It would be a miracle if she lives." Ethan races to the hospital, having a flashback of telling Theresa he didn't love her and says, "Please God, Let her be alright." He arrives at the hospital and the nurse yells, "You can't go back there!" Ethan pulls back the curtains and sees a body covered. The nurse tells him, "We did everything we could."

Ivy jeers at Julian for failing to ferret out her alleged secret. After Alistair phones with an update on recent events, a panicked Julian heads out of the mansion on the double.
