Nevertheless, she does for Casey's sake and told him that's great news. Saying "It's about time Michael and Vanessa got serious with their relationship."

At Cole and Caitlin's Place, Caitlin thanks Cole for helping out her mother, but still wonders why her mom decided to leave Sunset Beach. Cole told her that Olivia just needed to get away and the important thing is that Olivia will now take steps to pull herself back together and get her life back on track. Caitlin still wonders how Cole know where to find Olivia at, because the last thing Olivia said was that she was going back to the place where it all begin. She then asked him how did he know he would find Olivia at The Grotto. Cole lies telling Caitlin it was just by accident. When Caitlin continues to speculate about why The Grotto seems to hold a special significance for Olivia. Cole plays dumb. Caitlin then told Cole that she believes part of the reason her mother left is because of her father's lack of support. Cole agrees with that theory and told Caitlin that Gregory played a big part in Olivia's decision to leave. Caitlin then told her husband that she wishes her mom and dad's marriage could be more like theirs is, adding that they have total trust in one another. Feeling a twinge of guilt, Cole holds Caitlin and told her that they could of lost it all, but they fought for their love for one another. Caitlin agrees and told Cole that when Trey is old enough to have a sitter, she would like for them to return to The Grotto and have the honeymoon they never had there. Cole told Caitlin that's one promise he intends to keep and as they reminisce on the night when they first made love; Cole told Caitlin they will take better precautions next time because he doesn't think Trey needs a little brother or sister yet. Caitlin agrees, but then feels guilty when Cole told her that he would love to have another baby sometime in the future. Cole then told Caitlin that he has to get to work and after kissing her and his son goodbye leaves. Once he's gone, Caitlin told Trey that she will do everything in her power to keep her and Cole's happiness together and he must never know that Trey is not his son.
At the Richards, Sean corners Annie once again about the baby coincidence. Annie told Sean that he needs to let it go, everyone know that Olivia's baby was stillborn. Sean told her that he thinks she's involved in this all the way up the her eyebrows. Annie told Sean that she's not covering anything up and told him she thought they where friends after everything she did for Caitlin. Sean told her that he wants to trust her but after seeing how she's always around when something went wrong, he's having a hard time. Annie asks Sean what is this some conspiracy and then told him that both Olivia and Dr. Brock signed the cremation papers. Sean told her the same Dr. Brock that she was having a private conversation with this morning. Annie cleverly covers again by telling Sean that she was trying to find out from Dr. Brock why Olivia had her baby cremated. Sean doesn't buy it and told Annie he's beginning to wonder if his father is right, that baby disappeared because somebody had something to hide. Annie then blurts out that Olivia was plastered when she gave birth and that is why she had her baby cremated so that no one would find out about it when they did an autopsy. Sean defends his mother by telling Annie he'll never believe Olivia was drunk the night that she gave birth, because he knows she wanted that baby more than anything. Annie told him that she was only speaking hypothetically, but Sean told her hypothetically Annie, I think you are the one who has something to hide.
Virginia shows up at Mrs. Moreau's wanting more Vanessa help. Mrs. Moreau asks Virginia if she is there to complain about the potion again.

Virginia told Mrs. Moreau that she doesn't want to kill Vanessa she just wants her to leave town for good. She then asks Mrs. Moreau for a potion that will make Michael and Vanessa fall out of love, but the woman refuses. She told Virginia that her potion cannot stand in the way of true love and love is like a water fall you either go with it or against it. Virginia told her she came over for some advice and all Mrs. Moreau can give her is a greeting card message. Moreau told her when she opens her mouth to speak, all she gives is good advice. Catching on Virginia gets ready to leave and told Moreau that she knows exactly what she is going to do to Vanessa. After leaving, Mrs. Moreau shakes her head and says that Virginia is no good, bad to the bone.
Back at the Richard's, Sean told Annie the same day she delivered a baby to Caitlin, his mom had her baby out in the middle of nowhere and then mysteriously forgets the whole thing. Annie told him there is a hole in his logic, because Olivia didn't have the baby out in the middle of nowhere; she had the baby in San Francisco and she (Annie) delivered Caitlin's baby about 2000 miles from there. Sean then asks Annie why was she so interested in Olivia's medical condition when she was pregnant. Annie told him she was just showing Olivia some support for Caitlin's sake. Sean told her or maybe you where plotting out the due date so you could figure out some way to get Olivia out of town. Annie told Sean again that Olivia was trunk and she's not a psychiatrist, she can't explain Olivia's erratic behavior. Sean tells her to explain her own erratic behavior, like why is she so afraid for Olivia to get her memory back. Annie says nothing and Sean flat out accuses her of stealing Olivia's baby in order to give the baby boy to Caitlin. Though Annie nervously denies, Sean threatens to squeal to Caitlin unless Trey's birth mother is produced. Still trying to stall Annie told Sean that she doesn't want any contact with the people who adopted her baby. Sean told her either he meets the birth mother or he's calling Caitlin chose. Annie agrees and then leaves. Once outside, she decides to find a girl to pose as the birth mother and heads over to Father Antonio's church since he's always taken in homeless people.
Over at the Church, Father Antonio is outside playing Hoop when Cole shows up. Cole told him that his job just donated a lot of stuff to the church and he volunteered to bring it over. Antonio told him that was nice of him but can see that he's got something on his mind. Cole admits it and then asks Father Antonio is they can talk privately. Once inside Father Antonio's private chamber, Cole told him that the lies are eating him up inside and explains to Father Antonio about the last few days he's been having since his son was born. He told him that the guilt over sleeping with Olivia and losing a child that could have been his is beginning to tear him apart. He then tells Antonio that he wants to tell Caitlin, but if he does; He'll lose Caitlin and Trey forever and wonders if there is any justice. Antonio told him that he can't make those decisions for him, but told Cole that we all must live with our decisions one day or another. Annie shows up to speak to Father Antonio and hears Cole's voice on the other side of the door. As Cole told Father Antonio that he's made up his mind and he has to tell Caitlin the truth about him and Olivia, Annie overhears all of this on the other side of the door......
Still bitter about the loss of his infant son, Gregory wonders who he can pass his legacy on to now that both of his older children want nothing to do with the Richards' empire. Upset when Sean begins speculating aloud about where Annie procured the baby, Caitlin sternly reminds her brother that she is Trey's only mother.

Meanwhile, at Cedar Oaks, Michael inquires about a certain patient to whom his girlfriend seems to have become attached. After catching Annie listening in on his private conversation with his priest, Cole covers his tracks by convincing her that he was discussing Olivia's suicide attempt. Later, anxious to locate a young woman who can portray Trey's birth mother, Annie volunteers to join a church mentoring program. Dr. Estrada told Vanessa a new test has just been developed which can identify Martin's Syndrome in its earliest stages.
At Sunset Beach, Casey, Michael, and the rest of the lifeguard crew are busy cleaning up the beach due to another El Niņo storm. Casey tries to encourage Michael into letting him throw a farewell party to celebrate Michael's decision to move in with Vanessa. Michael told him it sounded like a good idea, but Vanessa and him haven't gone public with their news yet. He then suggested that they make it a welcome party for Father Antonio. Casey said that was a good idea, and told him to go see Vanessa. Michael called Vanessa's and got the answering machine. He left a message for her to call him on his cellphone or at Surf Central. Casey asked Michael if anything was wrong. He told him no, he was just having a hard time tracking down Vanessa. Casey kidded Michael about his anticipation to move in with Vanessa. Michael told him he was excited as the two of them strolled back to Surf Central.
At Cedar Oaks, Vanessa is in Dr. Estrada's office in a panicked state because she has found out that the other Doctor that Dr. Estrada was referring to is Dr. Tyus Robbins from Sunset Beach . As Dr. Estrada starts to enter her room with Tyus, Vanessa hides in her closet. Tyus asks where is she, but Dr. Estrada is wondering the very same thing and told Tyus, she was just in here. Tyus then asked Dr. Estrada to tell him more about the patients case. Dr. Estrada told him everything he needed to know about the patients was in these files. As she is about to hand the files to Tyus, Vanessa emerges from the closet where only Dr. Estrada can see her and signals her not to let Dr. Robbins see her medical file. Dr. Estrada then makes up an excuse and tells Tyus that it would be unethical if she showed the patients files to him, when the patient has really agreed on the testing yet. Tyus understands and prepares to leave. Dr. Robbins apologizes to him for driving all the way out to Cedar Oaks. Tyus told her that's alright and to just keep him informed on the situation. Once gone, Vanessa comes out of hiding and told Dr. Estrada that Dr. Robbins is an acquaintance of hers and she doesn't want him to know she is the patient. Dr. Estrada agrees to keep Vanessa's identity a secret, but told her to that she is going to need Dr. Robbins to help her conduct the test for (name of disease). She then told Vanessa to call her tomorrow to schedule a test. Vanessa told her not to worry and that she will call, because it will be the most important call of her life.
Meanwhile, Virginia is also at Cedar Oaks under her alias Selida Jones. She is in Lena's room and as Lena lays there hardly noticing her, Virginia starts telling her how sorry she is that Vanessa didn't care enough to send her very best goodbyes, it is awful especially when she is afraid that she will look like her. She should be crossing the state line by now and she will never look back. As Virginia starts to leave, Lena grabs her arm and says Vanessa please don't leave me. It's been along time since I've had the chance to talk with my little girl, stay with me. Virginia told her alright mom. Lena asks Virginia is she is ok. Virginia told her, yes I have never been better. Lena asks Virginia to tell her if she is happy. Virginia says yes, she is in love with a man that is everything she has ever wanted. Lena said it sounded wonderful. Virginia told her he is and she will never let anyone or anything come between them. Lena told her that's my girl. Just then, Laverne yells into the room, "Selida get out here." Virginia told Lena she has to go. Laverne tells her she might have known this is where she would be. She then tells Virginia that there is a nice mess waiting for her in another patients room, she pushes a bed pan at her and told her to clean it up. Virginia pushes the bedpan back at her and told her to clean it herself and walks off. Laverne catches up to her and told her that Nurse Baker was right about her and then tells her it gives her great pleasure to tell Virginia she's fired. Virginia tells her she can't fire her, because she quits. Then told her that she too is also glad that she doesn't have to deal with Laverne one more day, with her file this, file that, clean this up attitude.. Laverne asked for her keys. Virginia told her gladly and then says goodbye Selida Jones and hello Michael Bourne and throws the name tag in the garbage on her way out.
At Ben and Meg's Place, Meg arrives home and then calls out to see if anyone else is there. When she gets no response, she begins to start reading her mail unaware that she is being recorded. After Meg is done reading the mail, she puts it down on the coffee table and turns and almost runs into the camera. Startled she says, Ben you scared me to death. Derek told her he's sorry, he was hoping to surprise her. Meg asked if the video camera was for her. He said it was for both of them, it was for Venice. Meg told him it was nice, but it was too high tech for her. She then asked what was the first thing he wanted to tape. Derek told her he has thought of something special. Meg asked, what are you going to shoot first. Derek told her you. Meg asked why me? Derek said why not. Meg told him she felt kind of silly. Derek told her not to she is the star attraction. Derek begins to look aggravated with the camera. Meg asked him what was wrong. He said it wasn't working right. He then told her to go and hold up the paper so he could focus in on the date. As she held it up, Ben zoomed in on today's date. He told her he was going to ask her a few questions. He then asked her who she loved? She said you. He asked how much? She said more than anything. He said to himself, that it was perfect, this may be all it takes to kill Ben. He then asked her to describe how they met. She said he was her night in shining armor and saved her from a man at the Java Web. He asked when was the first time we kissed. She told him here, out on the deck and it was so romantic. He asked her to tell about other romantic things they did? Meg asked him if he really wanted her to discuss that on video tape, and what if others would see it, he told her it was just for them. She then told him there were so many, but her favorite had to be when they first made love when she returned to Sunset Beach from Kansas. He asked what day she was looking forward to the most. She told him our wedding day and then told him the interview is over and told him to come here. He asked her what for. Meg said he would see. As he went over there to her, Meg kisses him. While they are still kissing they are still being recorded and Derek does a little wave at the camera meant for Ben, Meg doesn't notice this.
At Surf Central, Casey and Michael arrive and Michael said how many flyers can they put on your car in one day. Casey was thinking about the flyer that Tim had. He said it was odd that he had it in his suit at Cole and Caitlin's wedding. Michael said maybe someone put it on his windshield. Casey said he was probably right. Michael told him they still had a party to plan and hopes he hears from Vanessa soon, if it is going to be a goodbye party for him, he has to clear it with her first. Jimmy walks in and asked him where he was going. Casey said he would give them privacy. Michael told Jimmy to come sit on the couch. Casey runs into Virginia at the door. Michael said he was glad they were both there, he has something to say, I am moving in with Vanessa. Virginia said she already knew, over heard Casey. Michael said he knew. Jimmy asked if he was still going to be his friend. Michael said always, now he will even make a bigger effort to be around him, it would mean a lot if you would be happy for me. Jimmy said he was for both of them. Michael asked Virginia if she was ok with this. Virginia said she wasn't going to lie, she is jealous, anybody would be they have a great relationship. They were not going anywhere, they were family. Michael said right and that she will find a good man soon too. Virginia told him she knew she would. Michael wondered why he hadn't heard from Vanessa. Virginia told him to give her another call. Vanessa walks in and said don't bother I am here. Michael said he was starting to worry. She told him she was safe in his arms and there is no place she would rather be. Virginia looks upset.
At The Warehouse, Ben said there has to be a way to get to Meg. He sees a metal piece attached to the pipes he is chained to and thinks to himself if he can reach that sharp edge he might be able to sever them. He stands up and starts scraping the chain on it. As Ben is still working feverishly on the chains, he told himself that he'll save Meg if it is the last thing he does.
Back at Ben and Meg's Place, Joan and Hank arrive there and Meg shows them the video camera. Derek told them he thinks it is broken and will return it to where he bought it from. Meg asks her dad if he knows a lot about these things and asks him if he can fix it. Derek told her that he's afraid that would void the warranty. Meg told him that was alright, her father can fix it. Derek yelled Meg, give me the damn camera would you. Catching himself, he apologizes and told them he didn't know what came over him. Hank said he sure liked to know. Meg asked if he was having his headaches again. Derek said yeah but that is no excuse and apologizes to everyone and said it was unacceptable. Hank told him he had that right and Joan got Hank to give Meg and Ben some space. Derek asked if she was mad at him. Meg said no. Derek explained that he didn't want to lose the beautiful footage they just shot. Meg asked if he has been taking his medication. Derek told her no. Meg told him he needed to, and knows that the headaches aren't the only thing that is stressing him out, it is also because her parents are here, she knows what he is going through. Derek asked how she could be so understanding. Meg said because she loved him and he loved her. Just then, the doorbell rings it is Casey and he invites them to the party. Meg asked Ben if he wanted to go. Derek said sure, but he had to go get the camera fixed first, he would meet them there. Meg asked if she could bring her parents too. Casey said yes. They start talking about the flyer that Tim had. Casey said he had enough time before the party to go to the warehouse district and check it out.
Back at Surf Central, Vanessa asked Michael what was so important. Michael told her they are having a party. Vanessa asked what it was for. He said a welcome for Antonio and goodbye for me, they didn't have to make the party that way, but it was a perfect opportunity to let the whole world know how he feels. He asked her if something was wrong. Vanessa said no. Michael said he didn't want to pressure her. Vanessa said she knew and said lets do it, she wants everyone to know. Virginia is listening out on the deck. Michael walks in the room and told Father Antonio that he hoped he didn't mind that he was going to have to share his party. Antonio asked him what for. Michael told him he is moving in with Vanessa. Gabi jumps up and hugs Vanessa and told them it was wonderful Virginia says to herself, she didn't know why Vanessa was still there, but she intends to find out. Tyus drops by as well and asks Vanessa if she was going to invite him in. She said of course. Michael said hey Tyus, glad you could make it. Tyus asked what the party was for. Michael explained and Tyus said congratulation. Michael went to answer the door, it is Meg and her parents. Michael asked where Ben was. Meg said he had a few errands to run and he would be there soon. Tyus told Vanessa congratulation. She said thanks. He said her perfume smelled familiar. Virginia still pondered why Vanessa wasn't leaving town and thought that maybe there is a clue in her purse. She took Dr. Estrada's card out of her purse and wondered what Vanessa was doing with it. She sees that it says call tomorrow regarding test. She wonders what test. Gabi walks up to Meg and said hi, saw her pearl necklace and asked if Ben gave her another pearl. Meg said not for a while, but he did give her a video camera. Gabi looked upset. Meg asked what was wrong. Gabi said when she said video camera, she couldn't help think of the island and the maniac recording killing Elizabeth.
Back at the Warehouse, Casey shows up to check out the warehouse and is shocked when he finds Ben/Derek there unlocking a chained gate. Derek enters the warehouse and Ben hears that someone is coming in and sits back down. Derek told Ben he now has the proof Ben's been waiting for. Just then Casey enters and yells out, Ben are you in there.........
With the party in full swing, Tyus recognizes a familiar perfume while chatting with Vanessa. As Casey pounds on the door of the warehouse, Derek gags his twin to prevent Ben from calling out for help. Virginia learns that Vanessa has made another appointment with Dr. Estrada. Antonio makes fast friends with Jimmy on his first night at Surf Central. Ricardo again warns Meg to stay away from Ben before she pays the ultimate price for her misguided love. Virginia returns to Cedar Oaks and pesters an irritated Laverne to rehire her. Vanessa tries to throw Tyus off the scent by surreptitiously spraying her perfume on several other women at the party. Derek finally lets Casey in but carefully steers him away from the room where Ben is imprisoned. After Casey leaves, a snickering Derek taunts his brother with a hologramatic image of Meg. An offhand remark from Hank about the love fathers have for their daughters gives Gabi the shivers. Later, Gabi tearfully reveals to an appalled Antonio how her father raped her when she was a child. Derek warns Ben he'll kill Meg that very night if he doesn't get the password which will open his twin's bank accounts. Casey convinces Meg to go back to the warehouse with him.
