Carly startles her when she asks, "What do you think you are doing?" Katie spins around and asks Carly what is she doing there? Carly tells her that she has two seconds to take those earrings off. Katie informs her that she doesn't live there and she is not her boss. Carly grabs a pair of scissors and threatens to cut Katie's ears off. Katie doesn't budge and Carly turns her around and acts like she is cutting her hair. Katie screams and Carly grabs the earrings off her head. She asks Carly if she is crazy. She yells that she can't wait to tell Craig what she had done. Craig walks in to hear Katie say this and he asks what is going on? Katie tells Craig about Carly threatening to cut her hair, leaving out the part about her wearing the earrings. Carly tells her side that she had walked in on Katie wearing the earrings. Craig asks Katie about how she had gotten the key? She starts to lie to him and he warns her that she had better tell him the truth. She confesses to going in his room and getting the key and unlocking the safe where Craig had the earrings. Craig issues her a warning to never go into his room again. He tells Katie that he has an errand for her to run. Katie makes a remark about being an errand girl and Craig whispers something in Katie's ear so Carly can't hear. Katie looks at Craig and takes the envelope that he is holding and leaves. After she is gone, Carly starts to explain to Craig why she is there in his hotel suite. She explains that he was right, she can't do in on her own, and she needs him. He tells her that she has left something out. Carly looks at him and says, "I'm sorry?" Craig says, "Very good." He tells her that she will have to make the drop for him and if she is thinking about setting him up, she had better think again. He tells her that if she double-crosses him, he will make it so she will never hold her son again! He turns her toward the mirror and puts the earrings up to her ears and says that she will be the bell of the masquerade ball and that is where she will deliver the earrings. He adds, "And it will be right under the Oakdale police department's nose."

At the police department, Hal and Jack are planning a strategy to catch Craig Montgomery in a crime. They discuss keeping the project very quiet so Margo does not get wind of the plan. As they are talking, Katie walks in and over to Hal and Jack. She has an envelope for them from her brother Craig. Hal tells Jack to open it. Jack opens the envelope and finds an invitation to a masquerade ball inside. Hal tells Katie to tell her brother that they will be there. She gets mad because Craig has not told her about a party and he hasn't invited her either. She tells Hal to tell Craig himself and she stomps out.

Lily and the kids show up at the farm and surprises Holden. She tells him that the kids wanted to have lunch with him. She apologizes for just showing up, she can see that he is busy. He tells her that he is happy they are there and he would love to have lunch with them. Luke pipes up and says that he wants spaghetti, just like that other lady made for them. Holden starts to tell him that it might be better if they didn't have that and Lily stops him and says that she would love to fix spaghetti for them. She leaves Faith with Holden in the barn and she and Luke go into the house to fix lunch. She goes to the cabinet and gets a box of spaghetti. Luke looks at her and makes a face. He tells her that the other lady made real spaghetti and she had told him that spaghetti out of a box was for lazy people. Lily looks at him and says that she is definitely not lazy. She gets a jar of sauce and Luke makes another face. She reads his face and says, "No sauce in a jar either?" He smiles and says that the gravy has to be made in a pot and has to cook for hours. She tells Luke that they don't have time for that, Daddy is hungry now. He gives her a stern look and she gives in. She says that she will try to do it the other lady's way. She mixes up everything for the pasta and lets it sit. She mixes everything up for the sauce and then has the good idea to put it in the pressure cooker so the sauce, um gravy will cook faster. So, the gravy is in the pressure cooker and the homemade pasta is a flop. She talks Luke into just this time, letting her make the pasta in the box. When the boxed spaghetti noodles are cooked, Luke shows her how the other lady checked to make sure it was ready. He takes a handful of pasta and throws it against the wall. It doesn't stick. Lily takes a handful and throws it against the wall and it doesn't stick. Then they both do it again and it doesn't stick. The pressure cooker starts to vibrate and Lily grabs Luke and tells him to hit the deck. The pressure cooker blows up. Holden hears the explosion from out in the barn and gets Faith and runs into the house. He finds Lily and Luke on the floor covered in spaghetti sauce. They are laughing and Holden asks if they are all right? Lily says that they are and Holden suggests that maybe they should go to Mabel's for red hots? Lily is laughing and she says that she thinks that would be a good idea. She scoops some sauce up from the floor and rubs it into Luke's hair and they both laugh.

Holden dropped by Lily's to say goodnight to the kids and found her in their bedroom, freshly showered and wearing nothing but a towel. Lily's state of undress put them both in a passionate mood and they made love. Afterwards they laid together and reminisced about old times. When Holden assumed that their lovemaking was a prelude to him coming home, Lily apologized and said it was too soon for Holden to move back in. In disbelief, Holden furiously started to put his clothes back on. They argued and Holden pounded his fist on the wall in frustration. He could not understand how they went from making love and holding each other to things getting worse than ever. Lily insisted that their making love was not the answer to their problems but rather a step in getting back together. After Holden calmed down and they talked a little more, Lily asked him if he would escort her to Craig Montgomery's Halloween party, to which he agreed. After Holden left, Lily had a flashback of her and Simon kissing on the island.

Rose met her father and Nancy at the Lakeview for dinner. When pressed about the diamond that had been in her possession all those years, Joe remembered that a letter signed by Caroline Carpenter (Iva's mother) came in the same box as the diamond stating that some personal items and jewelry belonged to Rose. Rose insisted that if they could find that letter, she would be able to regain what was rightfully hers. Joe warned Rose about getting her hopes up and told her to be careful in her dealings with Lucinda Walsh. Against Joe's better judgment, Rose insisted on getting what she deserved and said she was "going for it, no matter matter who."

Lucinda paid Simon a visit at his new job where he was working as a mechanic. She offered him $20,000 in cash to leave Oakdale and never return. Simon refused her money and informed her that he intended to stick around Oakdale permanently. Feeling rather mischievous, Simon started the car he was working on, which sent a stream of motor oil flying in Lucinda's direction. An outraged Lucinda was drenched in oil. When Lucinda pressed him as to his intentions, Simon admitted that he was completely in love with Lily and that was what he wanted. Lucinda informed Simon that there was no way in the world that he could separate Lily and Holden--that better men than he, including herself, had tried and failed. Simon threatened to burn the envelope containing the bribe money and Lucinda snatched it back from him at the last minute.
