Theresa is in a panic when she sees the fake video. She calls the so called blackmailer and says that she wants to do business. The tape has her convinced that Ethan killed Julian on her behalf. Theresa meets with the fake blackmailer. He asks her for one hundred grand to start. Theresa refuses to live out her live as this guy's money machine. She tells him so but he laughs and says she will do what he asks from now on.

Luis tries to call Bermuda to check on Father Frank Liva. (Sheridan and Antonio's son from their past life.) Luis cannot get through. When he finally does, he speaks only to the caretaker and not to either Antonio or Sheridan. He too finds out the Father Frank has just died.

Beth and Luis fill Hank in on the goings on in Bermuda. They explain to Hank that they are happy but do not go into details. Hank hears all about Brian and his girlfriend Diana. They also show Hank the picture from the internet of Liam and Susan dancing. Hank gasps "Oh my God, Luis it looks just like you and Sheridan."

Privately, Beth shows Hank a picture of the man that Susan married. She asks him if it isn't the identical image of Antonio. Hank agrees. Beth wonders if it is Antonio who is destined to keep Luis and Sheridan apart for all time. She decides once again that it would be best if he doesn't think it is his own brother coming between him and his true love.

Sheridan and Brian find out that they were married and lived out their married lives in Bermuda.

Timmy trips the silent alarm to get the teen thieves in trouble. The cops burst in and tell Timmy to hit the floor. The cops round up everyone except Timmy and his dog "Toto." They manage to elude the police and hit the road once again in search of the magic ingredient that will help free Charity.

Sheridan's visions of her past life with Brian only bring the two of them closer together. They share a passionate kiss.

Ivy and Rebecca are pleased with the progress of their plan to get Theresa to the electric chair until Ethan picks up the fake video and inserts it into the vcr.

Antonio gets in touch with Pilar. She anxiously asks him when he is coming home. She does not tell Antonio about the house fire even though she is worried about how they can afford to rebuild. Antonio asks Pilar about Theresa. He tells Pilar that he is glad that Julian Crane is dead. He says that Julian got what he deserved. Pilar asks Antonio outright if he knows anything about the murder. Before Pilar can explain about Luis leaving abruptly they got disconnected. Pilar says that it is a miracle that Antonio called on his birthday. Luis does not realize that Antonio wants to come home and help the family, especially Theresa. He feels that Antonio is still the same and has not changed since the day he left them.

Diana has visions of her past life with Brian. (Antonio) She can see that they had a happy and wonderful life together.

Hank tells Beth that it is best to keep the fact the Sheridan and Antonio were married in a past life a secret from Luis. He reminds Beth how tenuous Luis and Antonio's relationship is. Beth feels guilty and does not want to go along with Hank on this.

Rebecca and Ivy are pleased with their plotting. Their plan almost backfired when Ethan picked up the damning video tape and put it in the vcr. Theresa manages to steal it away. Ethan is suspicious and tells Theresa he can see that she is hiding something and she is up to her old tricks lying to him.

Theresa plays innocent. Whitney is also concerned and knows that Theresa has a video in her purse. Theresa manages to get Ethan and Whitney to go with her to Chad's recording studio. Ethan is sure Theresa is up to something. He knows she dragged him to the studio under false pretenses. He thinks it is because she did not want him to view the video. Theresa lies once again. She covers up by saying that she is trying to play matchmaker between Whitney and Chad. Ethan accepts this and apologizes.

Chad plays his music. He words to one of the songs talks about being willing to die for the one you love. Theresa listens very carefully thinking of Ethan and the fake tape thinking he really killed Julian.

Luis shows Pilar the pictures of his past life with Sheridan.

Brian's stalker turns to killer as he takes aim to shoot Brian and Diana. He tells the unknown man on the other end of his cell phone that it is a lucky think to have found them sitting in a graveyard because he can dig a hole for the bodies right where he drops them.

Theresa says that Luis would arrest Ethan on the spot. The priest then says he will go to the police himself. Theresa stops him with a tearful speech.

She swears on her life that she will not let Ethan suffer because of Julian matter what she has to do to protect him.
