Georgia and Eddie are at Lily and Holden's house and they are ready to leave for the reunion. Georgia is getting the mail stacked up for Lily and she drops a letter to Lily. She picks it up and sees that on the back it says, "urgent information about your baby." She puts in out in plain sight on the desk and leaves a note for Lily about the letter. Eddie and Georgia leave to go to the reunion.

Well, the reunion of the Class of 1979 is getting started and the Lakeview is all abuzz with excitement. Alec is walking around looking at all the memorabilia from the class and he finds a picture of Dina and her friend Shirley. From behind him he hears a woman say, "Dead women don't show up at reunions. Alec says, "Hello Shirley". She says that she can't believe that he would show his face at this reunion. She rakes him over the coals for not being there for Dina and her baby. He says that she doesn't understand what he was going through. She says that she wonders how Eddie will feel and what kind of life that he has had. She realizes that he knows that Eddie will be at the reunion tonight and she says that she will tell him what kind of lying piece of trash is father really is. He tells her that he wants to handle this in his own way. She says, "As if I care." He says that he knows that she is up for a promotion at the Lakeview and he is an investor there. She says that he can fire her, she will get a job somewhere else. He says that he will find out and he will make some calls or he will buy that place too. He says that he will make her life miserable. He tells her that she has two choices, either she avoids his son altogether or if she does encounter him, she keeps her mouth shut. Eddie walks in and is surprised to see Alec there. Eddie asks Alec if he is working the room? Alec explains that he bought Paul Ryan's shares in the Lakeview. Alec introduces Shirley as one of his employees and she says hi to Eddie and she says that he looks pretty young to be from the class of '79. Eddie doesn't know who she is and he explains to her that his mother was in the class of '79, but she died. She says that she is sorry. He says that he is there in hopes of finding someone that can give him some information about his father. She says that his mother would be proud to know that he cared so much. Alec reminds Shirley that her shift is beginning. She says good-bye and as she is going, Eddie remembers that he didn't get her name. Georgia says that they need to go mingle. Eddie says that he sure hopes someone is there that can tell him something about his dad. Alec's eyes are shifting.

Out in the lobby, Cass and Lila Winthrop are trying to get a room at the Lakeview. The desk clerk apologizes and says that he can't find their reservation. Lila is ready to get out of Oakville. Cass corrects her and says that it is Oakdale. A person from the reunion comes up to Cass and mistakes him for someone he went to school with named Herman. Lila nudges Cass as to go along with it so they can get a room. (The only rooms that are available are the ones reserved for the people at the reunion.) He goes along with it and the guy, named Wally, drags him into the reunion and tells everyone that he found "Vermin" Herman out in the lobby. He makes Cass get up in front of the crowd and tell the story about the Homecoming. Cass has no idea what the story is but he makes up one and everyone in the room doesn't know what he is talking about. Lila starts to clap and says what a great story that was and they make a hasty retreat out of the room. Cass is pushing by people saying that has to go to the "toity". Wally goes to the microphone and says that he doesn't remember the story that way, but most of high school is a blur to him. Everyone laughs. Then Wally says that someone special is in attendance tonight. He says that one of their classmates, Dina Silva, died last year and her son is here in her place. Everyone claps for Eddie. Wally asks Eddie to come up and say a few words about Dina. Eddie doesn't want to go at first, but Georgia encourages him. He goes to the microphone and tells about the life that Dina had lead. He tries to explain that she was not a drug addict and she was selling drugs to keep them together. As he is talking about Dina, Cass Winthrop walks in and hears the name Dina Silva and he seems like he knows her. Eddie finishes talking and Wally tells him how sorry he is that he has lost his mother. He tells Eddie that his father didn't go to their school and he doesn't know anything about him. Lila comes in and puts her arms around Cass. She tells him that she got a room for them. The desk clerk had heard his story and they had some extra rooms booked for people who came in at the last minute. He tells her to go on up to the room and get ready, there is something that he needs to take care of. Cass goes over to Georgia and says that he is not an alum nor is he "Vermin", but he did know Dina Silva. Georgia goes and gets Eddie and tells him to listen to what Mr. Winthrop has to say. Eddie says, "You mean, you're not...." Cass says no, but he lived in Oakdale a long time ago and he did know Dina, very well.

At the police station, Gary is yelling at Denise that she is going to pay for what she has done. She sold her baby and she is guilty too. Kim hears what Gary is yelling and says to Lily and Holden that that can't be true. Lily looks at her with a worried look and says that it is true, Denise did sell her baby. Denise says to Ben that she had better get used to all the looks. She tells him that she can't believe that Kim has heard what she did. Ben tells her not to worry, Kim will understand when she hears the whole story. Lily and Holden try to explain to Kim about Denise selling her baby. Lily tells her about David Stenbeck being the one that bought the baby and switched Denise's baby with their baby. Kim says that if Denise is the birth mother, then who is the birth father? Lily says that they don't know, she never talks about him. Lily and Holden decide to go home and see if they have any leads about the baby. Kim tells them that she will stay there and keep Denise company and let them know if anything happens with Rady. Andy comes walking into the police station and Denise sees him. She tells Ben that if Kim tells him about her being Hope's mother, then he will do the math and figure out that he is the father. Hal comes in to talk with Andy and Denise goes to talk with Kim. She tries to explain about what she has done and Kim tells her not to worry, she is not passing judgment on her. Denise asks Kim not to say anything to anyone about this, because she doesn't want to cause any problems for Lily and Holden. Kim says that she understands and she won't say a word to anyone. Kim gives Denise a hug. Andy comes walking by and asks if that is his mother hanging out at the police station? He comes over to Kim and wants to know what she is doing there? She and Denise explain that they are there for Lily and Holden. They tell him that Gary is at it again and Lily and Holden are on a wild goose chase to find their baby. Kim remembers that she has an appointment and leaves. Andy asks Denise if she needs a lift somewhere and she says that she is there with Ben. She asks Andy if he has told anyone about them? He says that he has only told Molly, but she isn't going to say anything. She explains that she wants to keep it personal, between them. He says that he understands and then he says that he has to get back to his assignment. Andy leaves and Ben comes in and tells Denise that Hal and Jessica just went in with the judge. Denise tells him that she has covered everything with Andy. Ben tells her that she can't hide this from Andy forever. Denise says that she has made a mess of things and she wants to keep things right for Holden and Lily. Ben gets a page and he has to go to the hospital.

Holden is holding the letter that Luc gave him and he turns it over and sees that it says "urgent information about your baby". Then he sees that it is from a psychiatric hospital. The doorbell rings and he goes to answer the door and Emma is standing there. She says that she couldn't sleep, so she thought that she would come over and bring them some goodies that she had baked. She sees that Holden is holding an envelope and she asks him about it. He says that it is something about the baby, but they have got so many crack pot calls and letters that he doesn't even have to open it, he knows what it is going to be. Emma tells him that he should open it, he never knows, this might be the one lead. He points out to her that it is from a psychiatric hospital. He says that he will probably open it after Lily goes to bed. He thinks that it will be for the better that she doesn't know. Lily walks in and says, "What is for the better?" Holden makes up something about Julia and Jack and brushes it off. Lily sees Emma and says that she is glad that she is there. Emma shows her the baked goods that she has brought. Emma tells Lily that when she woke up this morning, she had a good feeling come over her and she feels that their daughter is fine and will be with them soon. Holden makes a negative comment and Lily asks him why he is being so negative tonight? Lily shows the two dresses to Emma that she has bought for her daughters and they talk about how cute they will be when they wear them. Later, Emma decides to go back home, because she sleeps better in her own bed. Holden and Lily show her to the door and she leaves. Holden tells Lily that he is dead on his feet and Lily says that maybe they will sleep some tonight. Lily remembers that she has to find Luc's teddy bear before she goes to bed. She asks Holden to look in the office and she will look in the living room. As she is looking, she finds the letter from Rita. She opens it and reads it and it says something about seeing her for the missing piece. She says under her breath that it is a treasure hunt and throws the letter down. Then she sees a picture fall out of the envelope. It is a picture of a baby.

When Brad gets to the living room, all he finds is lit candles and two wine glasses. He picks up one and says that it has Carly's shade of lipstick on it. He examines the other and says that there is no lipstick so that rules out Molly. He concludes that Jack has been there. Then he finds the note that Jack has sent to Carly with the wine.
