Camille and Brad stop at a restaurant. Despite having driven around all night, Camille still wants to "keep going." Ben leaves another message for Camille. At Cal's bedside, Lucinda tells him about B & B Enterprises being interested in his share of WOAK and that they are closing the deal-she says she had them investigated thoroughly and found no connection to David. The nurse from Cal's room leaves to call David and tells him what she overheard. Nurses are always underpaid, David drawls to his dad.

Margo and Tom argue about Eddie. Tom is convinced that Eddie's actions are a result of being on drugs, not sleepwalking as he claims, and he's worried about the boys. Tom tells Margo he wants Eddie out of their house, and turns to realize Eddie overheard them. Tom waves off Margo's apology to Eddie. Eddie denies using drugs but wishes it were something that easy to cure. Eddie listens in as Margo reminds Tom of her PTS episodes and how she got through it because of him, because he gave her that chance. Fine, Tom tells Eddie-prove you're not on drugs by taking a drug test. Eddie refuses and walks out. James leaves David's hotel room to "take care of" Lucinda, just as Molly is entering. Molly worries that James has told David something about her but David tells her to relax-his father is not coming after her like he did with Emily. Molly says she's still scared of him. She tells David about Kim refusing to give her book airtime on WOAK. Soon she'll have all the airtime she wants, David promises.

Ben pronounces Cal to be on the mend (if he gets rest) before leaving to answer a page. Lucinda leaves Cal's hospital room to answer her cellphone. It's James, calling her "lover." He wants to know if the package he had sent to her home has arrived yet. She hangs up. Margo tells Tom not to tell her what to think or feel and then walks out. She meets Eddie on the doorstep. He refuses to go to the hospital with her to get treated-he doesn't trust doctors because "they bury their mistakes." Emily arrives to have Tom (the other half of the "Tornado Twosome") edit her article, but Tom's not in the mood. She agrees with him about Eddie's sleepwalking being a ruse. Bob's not enthused about Nancy and Kim's plans for a surprise anniversary party for Tom and Margo-he's worried that they're at a rough point in their marriage. Ben turns down his party invitation and tells Bob about having to sleep off a hangover because Camille needed time to think about the marriage proposal he made to her.

Brad tells Camille he can't walk away from her-he's involved now. He picks up a magazine and opens it to one of her pictures. She's upset at seeing it, saying it, like everything else now, is in her past. She brushes off his attempts to cheer her up and tells him she has cancer. He figures out that that is why she was running. She tells him it is breast cancer. Bob tells Ben not to give up. Ben is determined to find Camille. Nancy and Kim plot to get Tom and Margo to the party until they spot Margo rushing by them in the hospital corridor. Margo asks Ben for help-sleeping disorders was one of his specialties in med school. She describes Eddie's actions and Ben defines it as night terrors. Eddie enters the room. David tells Molly about his buying a share of WOAK. Lucinda arrives home to find the place emptied of servants. But James is in her bathroom, giving himself a bubble bath.

She tells him not to feel bad. David has room service deliver a book-shaped cake to celebrate the success of Molly's alter ego, "Cherish Forever." Molly leaves to visit her "publisher," promising to cut the cake when she gets back. Matthew doesn't return Lucinda's repeated hails. James tells her he's her surprise package. She tries to call the police but discovers he's cut the phone lines, too. James just wants her to join him in the tub. Emily hugs Tom, then goes to leave as Bob, Nancy and Kim arrive. Bob tells Tom about their plans for a surprise party. Tom admits to forgetting it was his anniversary and nixes the idea of having people come over. Ben arranges to have Eddie stay at the hospital overnight to monitor his sleep patterns.

Camille tells Brad that she hasn't told anybody else. He tells her that someone he knows has survived breast cancer, though it wasn't easy. She tells him she wishes she could get her treatment outside of Oakdale, away from everybody she knows. Brad agrees and they leave the restaurant. Tom tells his "grams" to un-invite everybody. Ben is called away from watching Eddie and the lone nurse then gets called away, just as Eddie "wakes up" from dreaming about when Deena left him the first time. He begins removing his monitors.
