Luis calls Sheridan and catches her up on everyone being in Rome and of the catacomb incident. Fancy takes the phone from him and tells Sheridan about the kiss Luis gave her while thinking it was Sheridan and how much passion was in it, proving to her how much Luis does love Sheridan. Sheridan reacted by being very jealous. Chris questioned her about her jealous feelings when she got off the phone.
Beth and Marty left the cafe to go talk to Fancy some more but lost her when they stopped to buy a balloon. Beth was disappointed because she has no one to talk to and felt a connection with Fancy because of their man problems. Luis was just feet away from Beth and Marty as they sat by the fountain but was completely oblivious because he was on the phone with Sheridan. Beth and Marty overheard him say the name Marty and decided to go talk to the nice man because maybe he have a son named Marty also.
The two men in black took the girls to an old warehouse type building with one of the paintings in it. When the girls noticed it the men started shooting in their direction but it was at two burglars not at the girls. Jessica distracted the men by enticingly showing them the tattoo on her lower back while Paloma took the painting and Simone snuck behind them and knocked them out with a lamp. The girls made a mad dash for the street as fast as they could.
Noah and Fancy continue their argument and Fancy slaps Noah
On the Crane jet, Theresa and Ethan discussed the status of Paloma, Jessica and Simone. She told him she was glad that the man she loved was at her side. He made sure that she knew he wasn't there as a couple. Theresa said she didn't want to argue, but she knew that eventually they'd be together. She asked why he'd joined her and Ethan said that Gwen had sent him after they confirmed that Jessica was in trouble. Theresa pushed her luck by saying that he'd go back to her after she proved that Gwen sent the story to the tabloid so Ethan said he'd ask the pilot to turn the jet around and leave him in Harmony. Theresa stopped him and he asked her if she was going to use the trip to get close to him. She agreed and he said he'd call Gwen and tell her. Theresa kept hoping anyway that she'd find a way to get Ethan back and fantasized about past encounters with him. Theresa got an anonymous email that said she'd gain Ethan in Rome but lose her love and it had an omega symbol at the end. It said that someone from Harmony would die in Rome.
Noah and Fancy returned to their hotel room in Rome. He started to tell her why he kept ditching her and then saw Lina looking for him. He drew Fancy into a lip lock to hide from Lina. Lina questioned one of the hotel clerks who could see Noah. He said he hadn't seen him so Lina offered him some money. The clerk accepted the money and told her he hadn't seen him. Another clerk asked why he didn't give him up and he replied that he had to be discreet for their guests. Noah decided that he couldn't tell her yet for her own safety. Fancy pitched a fit about him kissing her and leaving her and a drunken Esme interrupted and comically mocked them both fighting. Fancy stormed off and Noah decided to take the opportunity to fulfill his mission for Lina.
In Italy Jessica, Paloma and Simone ran away with one of the missing church paintings and the three thugs chased after them. The girls eluded capture and Jessica checked to be sure they were gone before they headed for the hotel. Then the thugs saw them again and captured them. The girls begged to be told the meaning of the symbol and the thugs threatened to kill them. Noah came upon the thugs threatening the girls and attacked them. During the fight, the painting got torn. After the thugs ran off, Noah saw the piece of painting and asked the girls why the painting had the same symbol as Jessica's tattoo. The girls made up a story about buying the painting at a street fair and then asked why he was there. He mentioned that Chad and Luis were there too.
Fancy ran to her hotel room sobbing hysterically. Esme walked in on her and said that maybe she and "Nathan" weren't meant to be together because they were always out of synch with each other. She said when "Norman" said he loved Fancy she didn't love him and vice versa. Esme listed all the fun exploits they'd been on before. Esme told Fancy they needed to go have fun so pulled out an invitation to an art gallery opening so she could get her mind off "Nero." Fancy wasn't sure and corrected Esme every time she said his name wrong. Esme told her she'd meet a man who would change her life.
Luis phoned Sheridan from near a fountain in Rome to give an update and remind her how sorry he was that he hadn't believed her about Marty before and the situation was all his fault. Beth and Marty ate gelato just feet away and overheard him say the name "Marty." Marty wanted to know why so Beth said they'd go check it out. Chad tapped him on the shoulder so Luis turned around and a shocked Beth saw that it was him. She ducked behind a pillar but not before Chad saw her. Beth told Marty that Luis might be there to take him away to that awful Sheridan. When Chad and Luis walked away, Beth lost control of Marty who ran into the square yelling "daddy!" Luis heard his son's voice so he and Chad went back and saw Beth running off with Marty. They gave chase and Beth slipped through a door with the omega symbol engraved around the keyhole. Beth and Marty went upstairs and looked out on the street. Marty saw Luis and delightedly called out "daddy!" Luis heard him and looked up to see them in the open window. Beth tried to leave by the back way but it was locked. She told Marty that they were playing a game and had to stay away from his daddy. Just as Luis and Chad broke in, Beth went into a room to hide. Chad and Luis snuck up on a door and decided that Beth and Marty were behind it. Marty had been carrying a balloon with him and it popped. Beth anxiously told Marty to be quiet because they were still playing a game. She hugged Marty close to her and looked every here for an escape route.
At Sheridan's cottage, Chris comforted Sheridan and then brought a surprise for her out of his suitcase. It was a beautiful art book that he said reminded him of her because she is also beautiful. She turned to a religious picture and it had the omega symbol in it. Sheridan had a nasty cough so Chris went to get her some tea and when he left the room, he whispered to himself that he hoped Sheridan would understand as he fiddled with a worn piece of brown paper with the omega symbol on it.
Kay finds Miguel in the bathroom with Siren who is only covered in bubbles. A fuming Kay throws a towel over Siren's head and starts to overzealously dry her hair for her. Miguel gets angry and Kay apologizes to Siren. She tells Miguel she is tired and needs to take a shower before feeding Maria and going off to work. Miguel rudely shows her the door and says when he and Siren are finished the bathroom is hers. Kay goes down the kitchen ranting and raving to Tabitha who just plainly tells her to get Miguel away from Siren before it's too late. Kay continues to profess her love for Fox but looks uncertain and miserable.
Noah settles Jessica, Simone and Paloma into their hotel room and waits for room service to arrive before leaving them. Having checked the suite beforehand he warns them not to open the door for anyone. The girls enjoy a delicious dinner and talk about their adventure so far, unaware that Spike is waiting outside the hotel room door.
Esme and Fancy are ready for the gallery opening when Fancy tells Esme she's changed her mind. Esme talks her back into going. Fancy gets a call from Luis before going.
Chad and Luis get arrested in the museum storeroom after Luis breaks the door down and tackles a mannequin thinking it was Beth. He calls Fancy and she bails them out of jail and accompanies Luis back to the museum in case Beth may still be there. Chad heads back to the catacombs. Beth hears Luis approach the museum and quickly locks the door and tells Marty they still have to play hide and seek with Daddy for a little while longer. When Luis and Fancy find the museum door locked they spend the next few minutes awkwardly complimenting each other before heading back to the hotel where they share dinner after Luis cleaned himself up. Fancy excuses herself to go up to her room and Noah walks in the restaurant and sits down with Luis. Luis again questions him about letting someone like Fancy get away.
The monk tells Whitney she will die if she ever even sets eyes on Chad again. The monk leaves and as she's praying Chad hears her. They're on opposite sides of one of the collapsed walls. Chad begs her to go back home with him and Miles and she tells him that she hears the voice of God and that she will die if they see each other again. She runs off while Chad calls to her from the other side of the wall.
At the dock, Miguel slung boxes of fish around with one of his co-workers. The other guy had a tattoo on his arm that he said looked just like the mermaid he saw off the coast of Maine 40 years earlier and Miguel thought she was a dead ringer for Siren. Carl told the story of how he met his mermaid out in the middle of the ocean—beautiful, blonde, and young. He tried to rescue her and then realized that she didn't have legs, just a big shiny fish tail. Miguel didn't believe him, but Carl swore it really happened. He said he still kept his eyes peeled for her. Then he told Miguel the story of the mermaid's curse—once a man makes love to a mermaid, he can never make love to a woman again.
At Tabitha's house Kay tossed and turned in bed while she tried to figure out what was wrong with Siren. Fox woke up and asked why she was so restless. He wanted to know why it bugged her that Miguel liked Siren. Fox told her that if he was the jealous type, he'd be worried about their relationship. They bantered a bit about Miguel and Siren and he ended the argument by kissing her and pulling her back to the bed. Downstairs in the kitchen, Tabitha cooked up a big breakfast of bacon and eggs for Siren who really wanted some kelp and fish. Tabitha counseled her to act more like a human or Miguel would figure out that she was really a mermaid. Tabitha told her she'd throw Miguel away soon enough. Siren said she wanted to throw Miguel onto a tide pool and make love to him over and over and over. Miguel got home from fishing and brought a bucket of fish with him. Siren excitedly hugged him despite the fact that he smelled bad. Siren grabbed one of the raw sea bass and almost ate it, but Tabitha grabbed it and scowled at her. Miguel told them Carl's story of the mermaid and how he's still in love with her. Miguel pointed out the resemblance of the tattoo to Siren's likeness. Miguel went to clean and refrigerate the fish so Tabitha pulled Siren aside and confirmed that she really was the mermaid from 40 years ago. She asked how old she was and Siren said she wasn't any older than the witch but she'd aged better. She said it was from being in the healing water all those years. Miguel told them about the curse and it piqued Tabitha's interest when she realized that if Miguel made love to Siren he might never make love to Charity. Siren wrapped herself around Miguel and said all the talk about making love made her all tingly. He protested that he needed to shower all the fish stink off. Kay came in and got jealous so she told Miguel that he should go spend some time with Maria upstairs before Pilar picked her up. When they got upstairs, Maria was gone so Kay told him he should shower so he didn't offend Maria's nose. He was upset that she'd dragged him up there with Maria gone. He commented that Siren liked the way he smelled and Kay flipped out and said the girl was loony. He countered that she was beautiful and he liked her. Kay started to protest and Miguel told her she'd have to get used to the idea that he was going to spend time with Siren. In the kitchen, Siren was steamed that Kay had taken Miguel away again and decided to get back at her by paying attention to Fox. Tabitha asked her how often she'd been out in real life anyway since she was stuck in Mr. Andersen's fairy tale. Siren explained that it was magic—once he dreamed up that whole world for her she could pop back and forth from the sea to the story. She just happened to be there when Endora popped her out. Fox walked in with Maria and declared he'd cook breakfast. He was very excited because Maria had called him "daddy." Pilar knocked on the door so Tabitha took Maria from Fox to deliver her to her grandma's arms. Fox got eggs out for breakfast and Siren asked him to show her how to crack open an egg. He was surprised and then even more so when she pulled him around her to give her hands on help. Kay saw them together when she came back in and got furious with Siren. She told Fox he needed to get ready for his big day at work. Siren wanted to know what was up and he said he had to run a commercial shoot for Fancy since she was out of the country. When Fox left the room, Kay confronted Siren and asked what the heck she was doing. Siren replied that it should be her line.
On the Crane jet Theresa mulled over the nasty anonymous email message she got. It said she'd regain Ethan, but lose her love and somebody from Harmony would die in Rome. Ethan was asleep so Theresa unbuttoned his shirt and began kissing him. She murmured that they'd be joining the "Mile High Club." The pilot announced over the com system that they were beginning their descent into Rome and she shushed him. Ethan woke up alarmed at what was happening and Theresa told him that she hadn't seen him smile like that in years. He hollered at her for playing games, pulled his shirt back on and told her that he'd never leave his wife. She said that they couldn't fight fate. Theresa pled her case once again and told him she wished she carried a tape recorder around with her so he could hear Gwen and Rebecca bragging about sending his story to "Daily Private Lives." She told him he just needed to talk to J.T. Cornell from the tabloid and he'd surely confirm who gave him the story. Ethan told her there was no proof that Gwen had done any of the things Theresa accused her of doing and he was going to believe his wife because she wouldn't lie. Theresa yelled that Gwen was lying, but Ethan wouldn't hear it and went to shave. Theresa sat down, buckled up and swore to herself that just like the email said—she'd get him back.
Luis dreamt that he hid behind a pillar on the streets of Rome and snatched Marty from Beth when she walked by. Then she was arrested and hauled off to jail. Luis called Sheridan to tell her that he was taking Marty home to her. When he woke up he called Interpol to help him.
In Rome Fancy drank a latte in a café and looked so sad that the waiter commented on it. She decided not to waste any more tears on Noah. Luis joined her and asked if she'd seen Noah. She snapped at him that he should check Maya Chinn's room. Luis said that he knew Noah loved her because every time she walked into the room, Noah's face lit up. The waiter came over to them and said that they looked like a couple in love. They denied it and asked him to bring coffee. Luis told her that he had a meeting at the bank and he was hoping to get Beth's address. He said he couldn't wait to put Marty in Sheridan's arms again. Fancy told him that Sheridan was a lucky woman. He told her that he thought that the problems between her and Noah could be worked out if they talked and Fancy replied that they were way beyond talking. A guy walked by Luis and he was sure he knew him from Harmony, but couldn't think of his name or why he knew him. He thought the gut's name was DJ or TJ or something like that. (The guy –JT--talked on his cell phone and said that he had to skip out of town before the IRS caught him on tax fraud. He said he was going by another name now and would keep moving so they didn't catch, but he wanted to know the statute of limitations on his crime. He told his caller that as far as they were concerned JT Cornell was dead.) Luis noticed that Fancy was sad again and commented that it hurts to be in love. Fancy said it was more than just another woman and Luis jumped to Noah's defense saying what a stand-up guy he was. Fancy disputed that and remarked that he hadn't seen Noah for years, so what could he know. He reached over and took her hand and then moved his chair around the table to be closer to her. She told him that despite the fact that Noah looked up to him like a big brother, he was a scam artist. Luis had a hard time believing that Noah would change that much. At a nearby table, Beth had lighter colored hair and hid behind a menu. She told somebody on her cell phone that she was there and staying out of sight. She said she'd take them and then get out of there. As she exited the café, she snapped photos of Luis and Fancy sitting close to each other and smiling. The waiter commented to her that there was nothing like young love and pointed to Luis and Fancy. Beth immediately started thinking psycho thought about what she'd do to this new blonde trying to steal her man. She muttered under her breath that he shouldn't have come to Rome looking for them if he wasn't going to stay there forever. She said that something dangerous was going on in the city—so dangerous that someone wasn't going to make it back to Harmony alive.
It's a new day, and Miguel wants to see Maria, but she is off to see grandma. Tabitha couldn't help but to stir the pot a little. She tells Miguel that Maria is calling Fox "daddy." It's just like Tabitha to make Miguel feels inadequate, or anyone for that matter. Siren and Kay are having a spat over Miguel. It's one of those "who met whom first and who is better suited for whom" moment. Kay thinks Siren is also making a play for Fox. Can it get any more tense between these two? Siren tells Kay to make up her mind already: Fox or Miguel? Fox is having a crisis at the office and tells Kay about it. They need a new model for Fancy's clothing line. Fox and Kay come up with the idea for a new model unbeknownst to each other. Kay chooses Miguel and Fox chooses Siren as a model. It turns out that Kay doesn't want Siren to spend the day with Miguel, so he was the perfect idea for the photo shoot. Well, it backfires on Kay because Alfredo, the client thinks both Miguel and Siren are suitable for the photo shoot. The ad campaign is sizzling hot, thanks to Miguel and Siren. Kay is not that happy about the situation at all.
Luis tells Fancy to talk things over with Noah, but Fancy tells Luis that it's no use since she has seen Noah cheating more than once. Luis promises Fancy that he will have a talk with Noah because that's not the Noah he remembers. As soon as Luis tells Fancy that he bets his life on it that Noah isn't cheating, he and Fancy glanced at Noah kissing Maya. Fancy proved her case, and Luis proceeded to straighten Noah out.
Ethan thinks that Theresa has manipulated the situation so that they only have one hotel room to share. He makes it very clear to Theresa that he is not cheating on Gwen. Theresa tries to calm Ethan down by telling him about the cryptic email she received in regards to the death of one of Harmony's residents in Rome. She is scared about the news and does not want to stay by herself. Theresa and Ethan run into Luis and Fancy. Theresa fills Luis in on Paloma, Simone, and Jessica's situation. He now knows that Paloma is not in Rome for art school. Noah joins in and tells Luis of the girls' latest mishaps. Luis tells Theresa that he has found Beth and Marty. Fancy asks Ethan what he is doing in Rome, but figures out that Theresa has talked him into it. Ethan thinks it's odd that all these people from Harmony are in Rome. Luis thinks it's for a reason, and Fancy wonders why. Luis thinks it's Alistair, except he is in a coma. Fancy of course comes to Alistair's defense by telling everyone that they are overreacting. Ethan mentions the email Theresa received and Luis asked to see the email. He discovers the same symbol in the email as the same one he and Chad saw in the catacombs. Noah also mentions the tattoo on Jessica's back. Everyone is trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Luis senses that there is more to the email, but Theresa tries to take the printout of the email back. Ethan finally got to read the other email about him. Apparently, it states that Theresa will gain Ethan in Rome but lose her love. Ethan jumps to conclusions right away. He thinks Theresa is trying to wreck his marriage as always. Theresa then starts rambling about the tabloid. Luis tells her that JT Cornell is in Rome, and Theresa is excited right away. She thinks that J.T. has evidence that Gwen is connected to the tabloid scandal. Ethan is suspicious of Theresa, and Luis tells Ethan that his problem with Theresa has nothing to do with anyone being in Rome. He thinks that everyone is being used as bait for something much bigger. Luis tells Fancy that she needs protection 24/7, and Noah volunteers to protect Fancy. Fancy shuns Noah. Luis volunteers to protect Fancy instead.
