Brad, Victoria and Victor arrived at a hotel in the Czech Republic the night before they were scheduled to tour the catacombs. Victoria was still miffed at Brad after she had earlier caught him and Sharon talking together in her car. Victor had gone to bed early in his room, so Brad wined and dined Victoria with an elegant dinner ordered from room service. He later recited poetry and shared a romantic tale about his parents' undying love for one another. Victoria's iciness soon melted, and the couple reconnected with what Victoria termed a "world-class" apology.
When Sharon ran into Nikki in the break room at Newman, Sharon asked if Nikki had heard from Brad and the others in Europe. Nikki became livid that Sharon had been told and strongly suggested that Sharon keep mum about what she knows. Later, Jack came into the break room with a belated Valentine gift for Sharon. He and Nikki sparred over Jack's premature victory of acquiring the variance on the property Jack wants to develop for N.V.P. Later, Jack and David Chow lunched at Indigo and made tentative plans for David to represent Jack and direct his political campaign. Later, David and Jack announced Jack's run for Bodi's senate seat to Sharon. Dru interrupted the impromptu announcement to tell Chow that she knew what he and Carmen were up to and that they would not get away with their attempt to frame her for Carmen's murder.
At the coffeehouse, Nick silently reminisced about his marriage to Sharon on the eleventh anniversary of the event. Nikki joined her son and the two spoke about it briefly after Nikki commented about Nick's pensive mood. Later, Sharon stopped in, and she and Nick shared an awkward lunch together, but Sharon said nothing about remembering their anniversary. However, Sharon mentioned Victor's trip to Kutna Hora, and Nick felt betrayed that he'd been kept in the dark. Nick later confronted Nikki about the issue, and she said it was Victor's decision not to tell anyone about the trip. Nikki, in turn, confronted Sharon about broadcasting information the Newmans wished to keep private, but Sharon boldly told Nikki that it had always the Newmans' way or the highway and that Sharon has decided that the highway was preferable.
Later, Nick went to the Newman break room to see Sharon and gave her a gift, which was a porcelain figurine of a mother and her young daughter in a dance-like embrace. Nick told Sharon that after some people divorce, they feel that their years together were wasted, but Nick told Sharon that he felt his years with her were special. Sharon, emotionally moved, told Nick that she felt the same way and that what she had with Nick and their children was the very best part of her.
Dru was still shaken after seeing yet another vision of Carmen the night before in the Winters' bedroom. As she napped on the sofa, Neil startled and awakened Dru when he placed a blanket on her. Neil was upset when Dru became frantic about searching for evidence to prove that Carmen was still alive. Dru theorized that the body placed behind Indigo was not Carmen's. Neil later called Devon and secretly asked him to come over to stay with Dru while Neil went to meet with Michael. Devon was also upset by Dru's insistent belief that Carmen is still alive after Dru claimed to receive a phone call from her. Dru told Devon that Carmen pulled a "Sheila" by having someone surgically altered into a Carmen look-a-like and then murdering that person. When Neil met with Michael, he requested a DNA test be done on Carmen's remains, so Dru could see scientific proof that Carmen is dead. Although Michael received William's approval for the DNA test, Michael admitted to Neil that after the fiasco with Sheila, he would not rule anything out.
After Jana surprised Kevin is his car, she convinced him to follow her to the storage locker. However, just after Kevin entered the storage locker, Jana threatened both Kevin and Colleen with a stun gun. Jana told her two captives that she'd faked her death by saving her blood and then dumping it by the lake. Jana also confessed to killing Carmen, although she explained that the killing was unplanned. Carmen was murdered the day she had come into the coffeehouse. Jana recalled that she was in the back room rifling through Victoria's stolen art portfolio when Carmen confronted her. Jana made up a story about finding the portfolio left behind on a table, but after Carmen walked out, Jana panicked. Jana snuck up behind Carmen and hit her over the head. Jana also told Kevin and Colleen that the information Colleen had provided about the reliquary's inscription would allow Jana to find and recover billions of dollars. Jana's great-grandfather, a jeweler, had been forced to etch the inscription into the reliquary, and then afterward, he was murdered by the Nazis because he knew too much.
Jana also tearfully admitted that she had fallen in love with Kevin, but sadly explained that she would now have to frame Kevin as Colleen's killer. After the police had gotten heavily involved, Jana said her plans to frame Adrian Korbel by planting her own hair extension along with Carmen's driver's license would no longer be part of her grand scheme to cover her trail. Jana said that she planned to make it appear that Kevin had locked Colleen in the freezer, but that Kevin would also die by making his death appear accidental from his failure to escape after setting the storage locker on fire. When Kevin attempted to gain control of the stun gun, Jana shot a bolt of current into Kevin's arm, and he fell to the floor in agony. Both Kevin and Colleen made an effort to convince Jana that Carmen's murder was a mistake and that Jana should drop her plan to murder them because she's not a killer. Colleen even offered Jana money, but Jana said she could have billions instead of millions. Colleen provoked Jana by telling her that Brad would get to the money first and Jana would end up in jail with no money at all. However, Jana said that she and her dad would use the secret code from the inscription to find the massive hidden fortune. Jana tearfully apologized before she left Kevin and Colleen helplessly locked inside the storage locker.

Phyllis was sure when she found a receipt for a gift that Nick had gotten her something. When she found out he'd bought a figurine of a mother and daughter for Sharon, she was stunned. She told him that he'd made a mistake. Nick said he'd wanted to offer Sharon something that would show they were all making peace, much like Jack had put a nursery for Summer in at Newman. Phyllis refused to see the two things as similar. She wanted to know what had prompted him to make such a gesture, and Nick said that it had been his and Sharon's anniversary. Phyllis wondered if she should tell Jack to get her a gift from Tiffany's when it was their anniversary in ten months. Nick said it wasn't like that. He'd wanted to give something to Sharon that would remind her of her relationship with Cassie. Phyllis told him that she was a mother with a daughter, too--his daughter, Summer. She stayed angry at Nick in spite of his apologies until he told her that he had a question for her. He wanted to marry her again in Wisconsin now that the waiting period was over. He even gave her some bridal magazines so she could start looking for the perfect dress. Phyllis's anger dissolved and she told Nick she'd marry him.
Cane was dazed by Amber's news that they'd gotten married in Vegas. She put on Cane's rugby jersey and reenacted the ceremony for him. Cane was amused by her, but he was also worried. He remembered that she'd said she loved him. He didn't want her to be hurt. It wasn't too late to annul the marriage. Amber told him that she'd married him as a friend, so he wouldn't have to leave the country. She wasn't going back on her word. But as long as he felt sorry about the wedding, it was probably better that they didn't have sex again. Cane didn't go for that idea at all and pulled her back into his arms. Later, Amber got out of the shower to find Cane missing. She got dressed and waited for him, obviously worried about where he'd gone. But when Cane returned, he'd bought her a rugby jersey just like his.
Brad and Victoria arrived at the hospital to find that Colleen's condition was no better. Sharon and Jack explained that the doctors had to periodically bring her back to consciousness to test whether she could breathe on her own. She still couldn't. Brad was angry at J.T., who apologized for not taking better care of Colleen. Lily was there, too, and believed J.T.'s story that Kevin was responsible for trying to kill Colleen.
Daniel talked to Kevin, who explained everything that had happened with Jana. Daniel felt sorry for him and assured him that as soon as Colleen regained consciousness, she would exonerate him. But when Kevin explained that Jana had also killed Carmen, Daniel was overjoyed. This meant that Devon would no longer be accused and have to stand trial. It was more important than ever that Colleen wake up.
Lily gave Dr. Korbel a compassionate look when she saw him sitting alone in the lounge and drawing a picture of Colleen on a napkin. When Daniel came in and told her Kevin's side of the story, Lily didn't believe him. She now thought that Kevin had killed Carmen, Jana, and Colleen, and that was what she told Devon when he arrived at the hospital. Devon said it was hard for him to be relieved about the possibility that charges against him would be dropped when Colleen was in critical condition.
Brad and Victoria were finally able to see Colleen. Victoria told her that her work on cracking the code with Dr. Korbel had paid off. They'd found what they were looking for in the Czech Republic and now the family was safe. Brad told her that he'd misjudged Adrian Korbel. He wished Colleen would open her eyes and say, "I told you so." Later, while Victoria and Victor were away from the waiting room, Brad thanked Sharon for staying with Colleen. She urged him not to blame himself for not being there. There was no way they could have known what was going to happen, and she and Jack had stayed with his daughter all night. When Brad hugged her in gratitude, Victor and Victoria arrived and watched them from the doorway.
Kevin talked to Lauren and asked her to deliver a message to Colleen. When Lauren left the room, she spoke to Michael, telling him that she needed to see Colleen. Michael said that wasn't a good idea. Jack confronted them, accusing them of covering for Kevin all this time. Michael told Jack to back off; his brother was innocent. Jack said that Kevin was finally going to pay for everything he'd done. Michael told Jack he pitied him; there was no one left in his family to care about him, so he was directing all his anger at Kevin. When Jack seemed about to go after Michael, Victor restrained him, telling him that wasn't the time or place to pursue a personal vendetta.
Lauren was able to slip into Colleen's room. She told Colleen that Kevin had sent her with a message. He was praying for her to get well. Lauren told Colleen that they needed a miracle. They needed for Colleen to open her eyes and tell everyone the truth, that it had been Jana, not Kevin, who'd tried to kill her.
Gloria and Michael were with Kevin when he was released by the doctors. But before they could take him home, William Bardwell arrived with the police. They arrested Kevin for the attempted murder of Colleen. Gloria was furious, telling William that Kevin was innocent. She couldn't believe that he'd first gone after her husband, and now it was her son. While the police were reading Kevin his rights, Devon stormed in. He wanted Kevin to tell him that he'd killed Carmen and was willing to let Devon take the blame for it. Michael pushed Devon from the room and told him that Kevin was innocent. Devon accused Michael of covering for Kevin during all the months that Devon had been fighting to prove his innocence. Michael said he believed in Kevin's innocence the same way he'd believed in Devon. Devon turned away in disgust.
Kevin felt miserable that everyone believed he'd tried to kill Colleen. He knew they hated him. When the police began leading him out of the hospital, he had to meet the accusing eyes of J.T., Adrian, Devon, Lily, Victor, Victoria, Sharon, and Jack. But it was Brad who came out of nowhere and assaulted Kevin, who staggered backward bleeding as the police pulled Brad away from him.
