Abigail and Adam have been booted out of Jake's apartment for trying to videotape Vicky's ghost. They go to the diner to get something to eat and Adam remembers that he left the video camera running. Abigail calls Jake and tells him about the video camera and he tells her that he will take care of shutting it off. Out in the living room, Molly is getting another visit from Vicky. Molly asks Vicky what it is that she wants? Vicky tries to speak but can't. When she finally gets "Molly" out, Molly says that she can't hear her. Molly drops her purse and Vicky sees a tube of lipstick on the floor. She bends over and picks it up. She goes over to a mirror by the door and slowly and painfully draws four lines on the mirror. She tells Molly to find her, please. Molly picks up a whatnot from the end table and throws it at Vicky. Vicky is gone. Jake walks in just as Molly is throwing the item and yells, "Leave me alone!" Jake wants to know what is going on? At first Molly doesn't want to tell him. She finally tells him that Vicky was there again. Jake looks at her like he doesn't believe her. She begs him to believe her. She takes him to the mirror and shows him the four lines drawn with lipstick. She tells him that she wouldn't make this up just to hurt him. He drops his head and says that he has something to tell her. Molly waits to hear what he has to say. He finally confesses that when he went to the town that he and Vicky grew up in and confesses his love for Molly to Vicky, that he had felt her presence. Molly says that she can't believe that all this time he had experienced Vicky's ghost and he was making her think that she was going crazy. Jake apologizes and agrees that he and Molly work together to find out what it is that Vicky wants from them. Molly suggests that they call Donna and go see her and tell her about what has been going on with Vicky. Jake agrees. Molly tells Jake that she knows this isn't easy for him, but they need to find out what Vicky wants so they can go on and be happy together. As they hug, Vicky's ghost walks across the room and disappears.

Katie has been looming around outside the garage and a cop picks her up under the suspicion of a break in. He takes her to the police station and Margo asks the cop what is he doing?

The cop leaves Katie and Margo alone. Margo lectures Katie about trying to marry an illegal alien to keep him in the country. Katie doesn't want to listen. She yawns and tells Margo that the same speech was just as boring when Tom gave it to her. Margo tells Katie to be realistic, if she were to marry Simon; they would be joined at the hip. They would not be able to see anyone else and they would have to go out together all the time. The INS would watch them continuously. Katie perks up. She asks Margo if she means that no one would be able to date anyone else? Margo tells her that is what she is saying. Katie grabs her purse and runs out, saying bye to Margo as she goes. Katie goes to the garage just in time to see Lily leaving. Katie goes inside and tells Simon that she is still available to marry, if he wants to stay in the country. Simon tells her that the INS will be there tonight to get him and deport him, so he is going to go meet Lily and then he is going to leave Oakdale for good. He asks Katie to do him a favor, hold off the INS if they show up there. Just as he is leaving, someone starts banging on the door. Katie waits for Simon to get out of sight and then she opens the door. The INS officials are at the door and they ask Katie if Simon Frazier is there? Katie looks over her shoulder and then back to the officials.

Hal was astonished when Jack told him of Julia's involvement with Winston Lowe, but he was a little worried about Jack's seemingly sympathetic feelings for Carly. They argued when Jack told Hal he wanted to apologize to Carly for not believing her. Hal told Jack he needed to get his loyalties straight. Jack insisted that telling Carly was not being disloyal to his wife and that maybe Hal should take a look at his own marriage to Barbara instead of giving him advice.

Julia revealed to Barbara that Jack found the photo of her and Winston Lowe, and that she admitted the truth about everything to him. Barbara was pleased to find out that Jack had forgiven Julia. She was not so thrilled to find out that Jack knew of her involvement, since he would most likely tell Hal. Barbara told Julia there were problems in her and Hal's marriage and admitted that Craig made her feel desirable. Although Barbara insisted that she and Craig were just friends, Julia was worried. Barbara told her she felt that she and Hal needed a separation. At that moment, Hal walked in and he and Barbara argued once again. He informed her that until further notice, he would be sleeping on the couch.

After Carly admitted to Craig that she knew about the envelope but not its' contents, he laughed and told her that Julia couldn't wait to get her hands on it. Carly was thrilled when she found out who was in the photo and ecstatic when she learned that Jack already knew. She happily assumed that Jack's marriage to Julia was over and that he would come back to her at last. Craig disagreed and bet Carly $100 that Jack wouldn't even tell Carly who was in the photograph.

Denise told Isaac that she wanted to use his club for her dance classes. Isaac was skeptical at first but eventually agreed, since he already used the club for his martial arts classes. He suggested that perhaps he and Denise should be partners.
