She tells Fox that knowing Ethan and Gwen are together is a knife in her heart. She tells Fox she doesn't want to give up on Ethan because she loves him and wants him with every fiber of her being. Theresa asks Fox if he understands and if he ever felt that way about anything. He admits he knows exactly how Theresa feels because he feels the same way about his family. He tells Theresa that there was a time when he saw Ethan get all the love and attention lavished on him. He says he got very little from his family. Theresa sympathizes with Fox and admits that when she was Ivy's assistant she noticed how Ivy slighted Fox. Theresa confesses to taking the birthday cards that held only cash and buying Fox birthday gifts "from his mother." She even admits to writing short notes in some of the cards. Fox tells Theresa that those notes meant a lot to him. Theresa apologizes for telling Fox the truth.
Phyllis interrupts their conversation. She informs Theresa that Ivy and Rebecca won't vacate the living room so she and the other staff can clean up. Theresa asks the maid if she told the pair that she is holding an important meeting there tomorrow. Phyllis reports that the two called her a "Loitering Latino." Theresa says that is enough. She storms from the room and announces that she has some evicting to do. Fox laughs and follows after her saying he wouldn't miss this for the world.

Theresa goes to the living room and listens outside the door. When she hears Ivy calling Little Ethan Theresa's barrio spawn she bursts into the room and demands that both Ivy Rebecca leave the house immediately. The two laugh in her face. Theresa takes matters in her own hands. She pushes Ivy's wheelchair out the door and Ivy falls face down in the snow. Fox grabs a hold of Rebecca who almost falls as Theresa brushes past her.

Luis and Sheridan meet in the hallway of the Cliffside Inn. They are both distant and a little cold to the other. They finally start talking and find out that neither one stood the other up at the judge's office. When Sheridan finds out Luis wanted to marry her, she throws herself into his arms. They kiss passionately. They discuss their future and agree they no longer can be a part. Luis says that if Antonio was strong enough to marry her, he is strong enough to be told the truth.

Liz tries her best to interrupt Eve and TC's romantic night. She barges in on them and asks for milk for her morning coffee. As Eve leaves the room, she puts the moves on TC.

She declares that Sheridan is the one ruining her life not Luis and it is Sheridan who deserves to die.

Sheridan and Luis go to tell Antonio the truth once and for all. They find him collapsed on the bedroom floor. They panic and try to call an ambulance. The maid comes in and says she was afraid this would happen. She said Antonio looked so pale and was waiting for his bride to come back to give him his medication. She then makes Sheridan feel even more guilty by saying she could not imagine where his bride would have gone to on their wedding night.
The ambulance can't get through so Luis says they will take him in his four wheel drive. They call Eve to meet them at the hospital. Sheridan calls Eve while she and TC are sharing their long awaited romantic night. TC is extremely unhappy about Eve having to leave his side once again. He explains to Eve he does understand but asks her point blank when they will have some time to their selves. TC says they haven't been alone together in months.

Ethan comes to Ivy's rescue and pulls her up out of the snow. She explains that Theresa threw her out. They ask Julian to intervene. Julian tells Theresa that Rebecca could be considered his house guest. Theresa admits that is true and because of Julian, Rebecca can stay but Ivy is out. Julian says he does not care if Ivy is thrown out since he did divorce her. Ivy tries to play on everyone's sympathies. Fox tells her to save it. This house was only a home to her and her precious firstborn son Ethan. It was never a loving home for him or the rest of his siblings.
Theresa then tells Ethan how nasty and plotting Rebecca and Ivy have been to her. She explains how they would not let the maids in to clean for the morning meeting. She also tells Ethan how Ivy slandered her family, Pilar and her heritage. Ethan tells his mother there is little he can do. Theresa tells Ivy to go to a hotel or go stay at the B&B so Grace can toss her ample behind out in the street. Julian then relents a little by telling Theresa that maybe it is not such a good idea to throw Ivy out in a snowstorm. Theresa says no way and orders Ivy to move it.
Theresa then says to herself "Okay, Gwen, you are next."

Liz pretends to sleepwalk to TC. TC calls the hospital and asks for advice on what to do or not to do for a sleepwalker. The nurse says don't wake her and let her act out her dream. Liz then pulls TC in for a kiss.

Sheridan keeps blaming herself for Antonio's condition. Eve says it does not look good. Eve then gets angry with Sheridan for not giving Antonio his medication on time. She questions what was more important to her than Antonio's life. Luis says it was all his fault because they were together. Eve exclaims, "I don't believe it." Eve says that their coming together tonight just may have killed Antonio. She doesn't know how they will be able to live with themselves. Eve hopes they did not put a curse on their love.

Beth goes to the hospital chapel to pray for Antonio's life. Beth prays that if Antonio dies, Sheridan will become poisoned with guilt. Beth says that the guilt Sheridan will feel will keep her a part from Luis forever. She begs God to let Sheridan be miserable for ruining her life and once again taking Luis away. A cold wind blows through the chapel. Beth then swears that she will never let Sheridan have Luis.

Sam shows up at the Crane mansion. Ivy is secretly thrilled because she is sure Sam will side with her and that she will have a reprieve from Theresa's eviction. Theresa tells Sam that maybe he should send for another officer since he is so close to the situation. Sam assures Theresa he can be partial when it comes to the law being broken and besides, there is no one else to answer the call. Ivy gets nasty with Theresa all over again, so sure that Sam will help her. Sam says he doesn't necessarily agree with Theresa but says the law is on her side. Sam insists that Ivy is out unless Julian, the other owner of the house, says Ivy can stay. Julian goes after Ivy and tells her it is payback for deceiving him all those years into thinking Ethan was his son. Fox jumps in and announces that bit of information sticks in his craw too.
