Grace thinks that this could be the "evil" that is hurting everyone and that she needs to abide by the laws of the church. She tells David that maybe she and Sam should separate.

Sam questions Ivy about Theresa's complaint. He asks her point blank if she set up Theresa. Ivy acts outraged. She screams at Sam that she would never let anyone think her son killed Julian. Sam doubts her word and tells Ivy that she has been a Crane too long and she has adopted their way of doing things. Ivy tells him that if she has such a low opinion of her to get the hell out of her house.

Tabitha and Julian get down and dirty. They do the deed in such wild outfits, even Rebecca would be shocked.

The zombie appears after Julian passes out and asks Tabitha just what in the hell she is doing. The zombie reminds Tabitha that Julian is her enemy and she should be killing him not playing push-push with him.

Tabitha realizes that the zombie is right and begins to strangle the unconscious Julian. She then stops and sees a message from Timmy printed on the ceiling of her bedroom. He tells Tabby to be good so she can be with him in heaven. Tabitha says she doesn't know if she is capable of being good because she has been evil for so many centuries. Timmy sends his love and signs off.

Ivy tries to play up to Sam. Theresa is watching. She tells Ivy that they are exactly alike in the fact that they both want their men back from other women. Theresa then tells Ivy that she may have a chance with Sam if Theresa decides not to become Grace's ally.

Antonio almost catches Luis and Sheridan in the act. He loses his sight temporarily. It then returns once he is relaxed, inside of the cottage. He decides to spend the night. Sheridan tells him she will not sleep with him until he is better.

Eve then lies to everyone and says that Antonio is just fine. After hearing that Luis prepares to tell Antonio the truth. He plans on telling his brother that Sheridan was engaged to him before her amnesia and is still planning to marry him even now.

Julian wakes up in Tabitha's bed all smiles. He tells Tabby that she had tricks up her sleeve that even he did not know about and he was sure he had seen everything. Julian leaves Tabitha by telling her once again how sorry he is that Timmy is gone. He then makes the mistake of opening the basement door. Julian gets blasted by the fire and smoke. Tabitha then gives him the bum's rush out of the house by way of her front door.

The zombie appears and questions Tabitha as to why she did not kill Julian when she had the chance. Tabitha cannot honestly answer that. Then they both hear strange knocking. Tabitha says it is coming from the attic. She opens a small door that she tells the zombie is a door from the future. Out walk four ugly babies. Tabitha laughs. She sees babies and pain in the future. She seems to know who three of the babies belong to but not the fourth. The zombie smiles. She says she knows who the fourth baby belongs to but won't tell Tabby.

Theresa has a new plan to get Ethan back. When Julian returns home Theresa drops a bomb on him. She reminds him and everyone else that she is the true Mrs. Julian Crane. When Julian makes an advance toward Theresa, she slugs him. Julian orders her out of the house. Theresa only laughs and says she is going nowhere.

He is proud of the fact that she wants a job and is willing to work, unlike the rest of the Crane women.

Rebecca tells Ivy that she is waiting for an important call that will put an end to Theresa's tyranny. Rebecca's call come through and she is pleased with the news she received. She says to herself that Theresa better enjoy the Crane money now because soon she will be out on her ear.

Grace orders Kay to get dressed and to meet her for a little talk downstairs. In the meantime David and John arrive. When John hears Kay going after Grace he tells his "Sis" to calm down. Kay informs him not to call her Sis and to butt out. She then hears that Grace sent John a fancy hot breakfast. Kay tells John that all Grace ever gets her for breakfast is cold cereal.

David tries to defend Grace but Kay tells him it is none of his business except for the fact that since her mother is married to him that makes Kay a bastard. When Grace hears this she grabs Kay's wrist. Kay retaliates by slapping her mother across the face.
