Chris walks into Emily's office and sees that she is in a good mood. They start to talk about articles for the paper and the phone rings. When Emily answers the phone, someone tells her that her mother and son have been in an accident and they are dead. Chris can see that it is not good news as she lets the phone fall to the desk. She tells him that her mother and son are dead. He grabs the phone to see who is on the other end and no one is there. Emily heads for the door and Chris asks where she is going? Emily says that her baby needs her and as she opens the door, her mother and son come through the door. She grabs Daniel and hugs her mother and says that they are both alive. When Susan hears what just happened, she wants to call the police. Emily won't let her. The phone rings again and Emily says that she will get it. When she says hello, David Stenbeck is on the other end and asks how her afternoon is going. She tells Susan and Chris that she needs to take this and she steps away from them. She warns David that he had better never do anything like that again. David tells her that she had better write the article about him or one of her family is really going to end up hurt. She hangs up the phone and Chris and Susan are full of questions. She down plays the whole thing and says that it was about a story she is working on. Susan finally gives up and leaves. When she is gone, Chris wants Emily to tell her everything. Emily tells him to leave, she wants to be alone. Chris gives up and leaves, too. Emily takes Daniel to her desks and sits down. She tells him that she will protect him and no one will ever hurt him. She starts to type on her computer. The headline reads, "David Stenbeck Should Be Freed!" Rose walks into Lily's house to find Celia there with a gun pointed at her. Celia explains that she wants her diamond. Rose tells her that she doesn't have the diamond, Lily has the diamond. Celia tells her that she should not play that game with her. Rose tells her that she is serious. She asks Celia why would she be there when she could be on an island somewhere living it up. Celia decides that she is telling the truth and tells Rose to tell her the story. Rose tells her that when they were being shot at, at the hotel, she and Lily decided to split up and meet up in Oakdale. Rose was scared to have the diamond, because the person shooting was obviously after the diamond, so she stuck the diamond in Lily's pocket. Celia tells Rose that she can't believe how stupid she could be, she gave up a seven million dollar diamond. Rose says that she knows it was stupid to do now, but she is going to get two million dollars from Lily's estate and leave. Celia informs her that she won't be getting the money either. She says that she saw her mother take the check from the lawyer. Rose does not know what to do now. Celia says that she will let her go if she promises to not go to the police and tell them she was there. Rose promises and Celia lets her go. Rose heads for Cal's house. When she gets there, she tells Mitzi everything she has learned from Celia. Lily is on an island with the Aussie and she is not getting her two million dollar check. Mitzi suggests that she cut her loses and leave. Rose says that a De Angelo never gives up. She decides that she will stay and take over Lily's life. Katie finds Holden at a bar. She goes to him and tells him that she wants to be there for him. She says that he has always been there for her and she wants to return the favor. Holden tells her to go home, there is nothing that she can do for him. She looks at him and asks if he is sure about that? Finally, he tells her that Lily has told him that she wants to leave him. Katie acts like she is so surprised. She tells him that Lily is crazy and if she wants to leave him, then he should let her go. He tells her that it is definitely over. Katie offers to drive him home, but he says that he doesn't want to go home. She says that she knows his house could be lonely for him, but she will stay with him all night if he wants her to. Finally, he gives in and Katie drives him home. When they get to the mansion, Katie suggests that Holden sit down because he has had a lot to drink. Holden thinks that is a good idea and sits down on the couch. Katie sits beside him and tells him that he has always been there for her and she wants to be there for him. She says that she will do anything for him. Katie grabs Holden and starts to kiss him. Holden kisses back at first and then pushes her away. Katie reminds him that she is not a child. Holden says that he knows that, but she should go home now. She finally gives in and stands up to leave. She turns and says that if the loneliness gets to be too much, he should just call her, even if it is in the middle of the night. Katie leaves and Holden walks over to a picture of he and Lily and the kids. Rose comes walking into the living room and tells Holden that she has made a big mistake and she wants to stay with him and the kids. She says that she doesn't want to be with Simon and she walks over and kisses Holden. Simon wakes up after the storm and Lily is beside him asleep. He rubs her cheek and she wakes up. It is an awkward moment and Lily apologizes for hogging the bed. Simon says that she didn't and he had a good nights sleep. They get up and see that the cave is in shambles. Lily jokes about the canceling the photo shoot for caves and garden. They work together and put things back together. After they are done, Simon says that they now have a two bedroom one bath cave. Lily tells him not to joke about a bath, she would die for one right now. Simon tells her to step this way and he holds up a makeshift curtain he made from their parachutes. She steps to the other side of the curtain and Simon says, "Voila!" and points to the ground. Lily doesn't see anything. Simon picks up some branches and reveals a hot spring. Lily is elated and she can't wait. Simon steps to the other side of the curtain as Lily undresses. They talk while she gets ready for her bath and Simon can't take it, watching her shadow through the curtain. Lily slips into the bath and she is "oohing" and "aahing" the whole time. Simon is going crazy and he tells Lily that he will leave her to her privacy and he leaves the cave. Lily is relaxing in the hot water and behind her a hand slips under the curtain and takes her clothes. When Lily is finished soaking, she gets out of the water and sees that her clothes are gone. Right away she blames Simon. She starts yelling for Simon and he runs into the cave. When she tells him that it is not funny that he took her clothes, at first, he laughs and then swears that he didn't take her clothes. She asks who could have taken them, they are the only two on the island. Simon jokes that maybe it was some wild animal that stole her clothes. She tells him that it is not funny, she needs clothes to wear, they are not going to start a nudist colony on this island. Simon tells her to wait there and she will sew up something for her. He gets the other parachute and makes her a skirt and top from the material. He passes the material over the curtain to Lily and she puts on the new clothes. When she comes out, Simon's eyes bug out at her. She has tied the top around her to make it look like a bathing suit top and the skirt is down around her hips so she is showing her tummy. She says that she feels pretty good and she is going to take a walk and see if she can find a weasel wearing her clothes. Simon tell her to be careful and she leaves. After she is gone, he picks up her coat and feels something in it. He starts to feel around and finds that there is a hard object in the lining of her coat. He puts his hand in the pocket and finds a hole and puts his hand through it. When is touches the object, he says that it can't be. He pulls the object out of the pocket and finds that it is the diamond that he has been chasing after. He says, " have been lying to me all along!"
