In Rome, Theresa kissed Ethan because she thought he decided to stay in her room because he wanted to be with her. He said the only reason he was staying there was to protect her from a possible killer. She told him he could deny it all he wanted, but they were going to fall back in love in the most romantic city. He reminded her that they were there to protect their sisters and that if the email she received is right, he's there to protect her and he wants to end up going home to Gwen and Jane. She kept up her yapping and Ethan said they'd be lucky to make it back home as friends much less lovers. Theresa told him he was cruel and just as she was fighting, broke it off because she remembered she had to call little Ethan over her computer. She read him the story of Pinocchio and showed him a wooden Pinocchio marionette she had bought him. Ethan chuckled as they read the story and little Ethan asked if he was there. They talked about t-ball and how much they missed being together. Theresa asked Ethan if he'd be there more for her son. She signed off the web call with little Ethan after he extracted a promise from Ethan to be there the next time his mom called. Theresa apologized for ruining their relationship by going to the islands to be with Julian, but it created her biggest joy. He told her that they should stop talking about themselves. She said that if she it to do all over, she'd still have gone to Bermuda to talk to Julian; she'd still end up in bed with him and still have her son. She told him that she had the whole Crane security staff hunting for J.T. Cornell. He told her that they were at a stalemate because he was never going to leave his wife. She said fine as long as he agreed to spend time with little Ethan. Ethan said that only as long as Theresa realized that Gwen would be involved as well. Theresa said that Gwen stole one of her children and she wouldn't allow her to be part of little Ethan's life too. Ethan told her it was a package deal so she would have to explain to little Ethan why he wasn't going to spend time with him.
Beth listened through Fancy's hotel room door as she and Luis argued about the need for him to protect her from a possible killer. Beth only heard what she wanted to hear and thought that Fancy was making a play for "her" man so she decided to kill Fancy. Luis told Fancy that she needed to give Noah another chance and she said she was through with him. Luis wanted to call Interpol, but Fancy decided that instead of a nap, she was going shopping. A housekeeper came up to Beth and asked if she needed help. She asked for help getting into "her" room and pulled the housekeeper inside and grabbed her clothes as a disguise. Luis wouldn't let Fancy leave and that only made Fancy angry. He told her to give him a chance to check with Interpol about the email and then they could go out shopping. Beth knocked on the door holding a big pile of towels and Luis let her in. She came in saying that she was going to turn down the beds. Luis decided to take a shower, but left the door open so she couldn't sneak out on him. Both Beth and Fancy ogled his beautiful body as he stripped for the shower. Beth thought that Fancy deserved to die for grabbing up Luis as soon as he was free of Sheridan. As Luis showered, Fancy watched and a crazed Beth decided that would have to kill Fancy right then and there because she didn't want the blonde bitch steal Luis from her. She looked around and found a letter opener and raised it to strike Fancy.
In Harmony Tabitha watched in her bowl as Miguel and Siren made out on the beach. Kay found them and then Fox came back from looking for them. He told her that she couldn't deny there was chemistry between the two. Fox wanted to know why it bothered Kay and he thought it seemed like she was jealous. Kay said he was just on the rebound from Charity. Kay started kissing him and asked him to take her home and make love to her. He picked her up and kissed her. After Fox and Kay left, Siren asked Miguel to make love to her. He said that they couldn't because it was a public beach. He told her a story about when he was on the beach when he was 15 years old. An exchange student from GReese had told Miguel and his friends that to get the girl of their dreams they had to write a description of the girl, put the paper in a box and throw it to Poseidon in the ocean. When Miguel left to get some cool drinks, Siren decided to get a favor from Poseidon. She swam out and came back with the box and then slapped her tail a couple of times to turn it into legs again. When Miguel came back, Siren gave him his box and said she'd found it in the sand. She asked him to read the list to her. He read the letter he'd written to Poseidon. It wasn't a physical description, but one of her character. Then she asked him to make love. He convinced her to go back to Tabitha's. While she picked up all of her stuff he wondered if he'd subconsciously written a list describing Kay.
Outside Tabitha's house Fox and Kay fell onto the porch swing set as they kissed. Suddenly Kay remembered that Miguel had told her that memories of swings and Kay would always be linked in his mind because of all the time they spent playing on the swings as children. She abruptly pulled away from Fox and told him they couldn't make love there. He wanted to know what was up because she was the one who hadn't wanted to wait until they got upstairs. She said she realized it was broad daylight. As they came in through the kitchen they sidestepped Tabitha and ran upstairs. Tabitha muttered that Kay wouldn't be able to forget Miguel by making love to Fox. Kay made love to Fox and he was overwhelmed at her ardor, asking her to kiss him like that again and exclaiming she'd never made love like that before. As she loved Fox, she thought of Miguel. Kay went downstairs to get some ice water. She told Tabitha that she couldn't understand why she loved Fox so much, but she wanted to cry. Endora popped up a box of tissues as Kay babbled on about Fox or Miguel. Outside in the yard on the porch swing set, Siren and Miguel kissed and giggled. Kay heard them and looked out at the two lovers. Kay wondered how he could do that on "their" swing. Tabitha told her that she'd have to make up her mind soon or she'd lose Miguel forever.
Fancy sneaks away from the hotel suite and Luis' protection and goes to a club. Beth follows Fancy so she can carry out the plot to get rid of her but acts as if they meet on accident. Fancy is happy to see her new friend again and doesn't hesitate when Beth suggests they try another club that's more fun. She does this when she sees Luis enter the present club searching for the run away Fancy.
Theresa tells Ethan she will find the tabloid editor and the truth about Gwen and Rebecca will make Ethan see Gwen for who she really is. Ethan yells at her and she leaves the suite to go talk with Luis about how their love lives are very similar. Luis doesn't see the similarities. Theresa goes for a drink in the hotel bar and a man named "Joe" offers to buy her one. She doesn't realize it's the tabloid editor she's been searching for.
Ethan tells Gwen about Theresa's quest over the phone and upsets her because she knows Theresa will finally get the proof she's been after for so long. Rebecca tells Gwen how foolish she is for letting Theresa and Ethan be alone together.
At the Bed and Breakfast Gwen and Rebecca argued about Theresa ruining their lives by finding J.T. Cornell and getting him to tell Ethan who sent the story to the tabloid. She was sure Ethan would hate her and go running back to Theresa and after all of these years, Theresa would win. Rebecca told Gwen to relax because Theresa didn't know what he looked like, he was on the lam from the IRS so probably keeping a low profile so Tacocita would never find him. Besides she should not worry because she had once worked with J.T. back in the day when she was emulating Jackie O. as a photo-journalist and J.T was just starting out after college. He wanted an entrée into high society and she had a lot to teach him between the sheets. (Rebecca then went off in a reverie of her memories of making love to J.T.) Gwen pushed her for his cell phone number and Rebecca pulled out a huge stash of business cards from her handbag. Gwen shuffled through them until she found J.T.'s and Rebecca confirmed that he'd called her right before he'd skipped town with the IRS on his tail. Gwen demanded that her mother call him immediately and Rebecca picked up the phone. She reached his answering machine and left him an urgent message to leave Rome and not to talk to any Latino women with heavy make-up because the IRS had hired a bunch of them from the border to do their dirty work. Then she told him to call her back on her special number. Gwen was still worried.
In Rome Theresa had drinks with J.T. Cornell without knowing it since he'd only said his name was Joe. J.T. went to take a call on his cell phone and Ethan came into the bar. He told her that he'd just talked to Gwen and she said that Jane did the cutest thing—she knocked the phone out of Gwen's hand because she wanted to talk to him. J.T. came back and Theresa introduced them and J.T. asked her to go to a club called Prometheus. Ethan said she wasn't interested so Theresa decided to go. She told Ethan not to wait up because she didn't know when she'd get back and he hollered after her to be safe as she ran out with Joe.
Beth pulled Fancy out of the Prometheus club to go see Rome and Fancy had second thoughts but Beth was determined to get Fancy all alone so she could do away with this new blonde threat to her relationship with Luis. She convinced her with a stolen bottle of champagne and lies about how glum she'd been since her husband cheated on her, to go out on the town with her. Theresa and Joe were still in the club dancing and when J.T. went for drinks Luis arrived looking for Fancy so Luis wasn't able to connect the dots about Joe and J.T. He asked Theresa if she'd seen Fancy but she hadn't. Then he asked her what she thought she was doing leaving the hotel. She said she was moving on like he'd counseled her to do. Luis left to go find Fancy, but Ethan was close behind. He watched her dancing seductively with Joe and she watched him watching her. He was sure she was trying to make him jealous and he kept telling himself that he loved his wife and baby and couldn't wait to go home to be with them. As J.T. danced with Theresa he told her that she was the hottest thing to com along since...and then said it was a long time ago in New York (his time with Rebecca).Then J.T. kissed her and pulled her outside. Crane Security called Ethan and asked if Theresa had gotten the photo of J.T. Cornell. Ethan said to send it to his phone and he'd show her himself. They did and Ethan recognized Joe to be J.T. Cornell. He went to tell Theresa, but couldn't find her and when he slipped outside, she was nowhere to be seen.
Out on the streets of Rome Beth took Fancy to see some of the ruins with Luis just far enough behind that he couldn't see them. Beth joked about how Julius Caesar could have stood on the very spot they were at and Fancy, not knowing Beth still planned to do her in with a letter opener remarked that she hoped it wasn't where he got stabbed. Fancy was guzzling champagne and Beth tried to scare her by saying that the place was so remote that they could yell and nobody would hear them. Luis continued to search and call out for her and heard a blood curdling scream that turned out to be a feral cat. Beth grabbed the champagne bottle and took a slug then dropped the bottle so she had some broken glass to use as a weapon. Beth pointed out an arch and told Fancy that it was where the ancient Romans executed promiscuous women. She told her that the Romans strongly believed in marriage so they disapproved of women who broke up a marriage. Just as Luis ran up and found Fancy, Beth ducked down behind some pillars. Fancy was surprised that her new friend was gone. Luis was so glad that he'd found her safely and Beth was frustrated that she'd missed her chance to kill Fancy. Luis told her that she shouldn't have left the hotel and she told she was glad he was there because the place was creeping her out. He asked her why she'd left when he asked her not to and she said she'd felt all cooped up. Besides she was there with a friend. Luis tried to convince her to go, but Fancy didn't want to go without finding her friend. Fancy tripped and bumped her knee and they decided to go back to the hotel. As they left, Beth came out from hiding in time to see them walking closely and pronounce her a blonde whore like her Auntie Sher Sher. She declared Fancy to be dead.
Simone, Paloma and Jessica enjoyed having a hair stylist take care of them in their room since they weren't supposed to go out. Noah came in to check on them and when they had a clothing boutique saleswoman bring in racks of dresses for them to try on, they had her bring some things for Noah to try on as well. Even though the girls said he looked hot in one jacket, he declined because it was out of his price range. He wanted to know how they were affording all this and the girls lied about having babysitting money and graduation presents instead of telling him that they were using Alistair's hidden stash. He then sat down and watched the girls have fun trying on slinky dresses and gorgeous outfits. As he watched, he stewed about having to do a job for Lena and decided to go get more info out of her so that he could get the job done and get back to his life with Fancy. When he'd all he could stand of the girls' fashion show, he made them promise that they wouldn't leave the hotel until he got back from running an errand and jetted out of there. The girls were looking great in their new clothes and decided that since there were three of them together, they were safe and not alone. They peeled out of there with the monk on their tail.
In Lena's room, she heard a loud knocking on her door and opened it to find Spike. She pulled him quickly into her room and exclaimed that he couldn't be there because Noah was looking for him and if he found him in Rome it would ruin everything. He said he'd come because the monk called him and wanted to know why Noah was looking for him. She asked him if he remembered killing a guy and Spike shook his head in disbelief saying that was his job, and wanted to know what guy she was talking about. She reminded him of the guy in the attic near the college a few years back and Spike quickly remembered which one she was talking about. She said that she'd had to lie to Noah and tell him that the victim was her partner and that there was a package missing. She said that she tasked him with finding the victim's killer and the non-existent package and if he finds Spike there, he'll figure out that the whole thing was an elaborate charade to destroy him and "that idiot girl Fancy." Noah then banged loudly on her door and yelled that they needed to talk. She told him to wait and he said he'd waited long enough. Lena told Spike he had to get out of there and Spike waved his gun and told her that Noah wouldn't be a problem. He jumped into a closet as Noah barged in and demanded answers. He said that if he was going to find her partner's killer he needed more information. She told him that he may already have all the answers he needs. She told him that she noticed a phenomenon that her opponents exhibited when she questioned them; they remembered things that they didn't realize they had seen. She told him that he should look within himself to find the key and Noah declared her nuts. He told her that he was beginning to think she was just sending him on a wild goose chase.
Ethan searches the yellow pages for a JT Cornell. Meanwhile, Theresa accompanies JT back to his room and decides to stay long enough to make Ethan jealous. Unbeknownst to Theresa, JT slips something in her drink to get her in the mood. Theresa is hesitant about getting to know JT since they have just met. Theresa tells JT that she has been looking for an editor that could change her life forever. JT tells her that he used to be an editor a while back. Theresa manages to get JT to tell her some of his biggest stories that he has written. He tells her about the tabloid that changed Ethan's life forever. Theresa tries to remain calm after hearing this because she does not want JT to get suspicious.
Gwen is frantically worried that JT will spill his guts to Theresa about the identity of the person who tipped off the tabloid story. She tells Rebecca to get in touch with JT right away. Rebecca very calmly tells Gwen not to worry because she will take care of JT. Gwen insists, so Rebecca calls JT while Theresa is in his room. Theresa hears Rebecca on the answering machine and is excited because she thinks Rebecca is about to spill the beans about the tabloid. Well, it all came to a screeching halt when Theresa picks up the phone, and Rebecca realizes Theresa is on the other end of the line. Regardless, it is enough to give Theresa hope of getting closer to the truth.
Paloma, Jessica, and Simone are out enjoying Rome despite Noah telling them to stay put. Spike manages to get a hold of Jessica without Paloma and Simone's knowledge. The other girls call out for Jessica, but Spike tells her to keep quiet.
Noah continues to search Lena's room but does not find anything. Lena tells Noah to quit stalling and go find the person who killed her partner. Noah does not have much to go on, but Lena insists he does since it was Noah and Maya who saw the shooting. Noah remembers a tattoo on the murderer's wrist, the same symbol on Jessica's back. Lena tells Noah to go put the pieces together by asking Jessica more questions. Lena tells Spike to stay clear of Noah or else. Well, that is impossible because Spike was instructed by the monk to kill Noah.

Sheridan reminds Luis that she is married to Chris and a baby is on the way. Sheridan is worried and tells Luis to be careful because she thinks Beth is violent and insane. That's an understatement. Beth manages to break into Fancy's room while Luis is on the phone with Sheridan. She props up a chair behind the bathroom door so that Luis could not get out. Afterwards, Beth takes a pillow and places it over Fancy's head, who is very much asleep but not for long because Beth started smothering her.
