At the hospital, Tom Hughes and Dr. Ben Harris discuss an alternative medicine for Lien. Ben tells Tom that they need to act soon because John wants to try something different on her. Tom finally decides to try the alternative, but he tells Ben that he needs to be the one to administer it. Ben gives Tom instructions on how to administer the drug and gives him the syringe. While Tom starts, Ben steps out into the hall to watch for anyone coming. John walks up and starts into Lien's room. Ben stops him to talk about a patient. John tells him unless it is an emergency; he has to see Lien now. John starts to walk by and Ben stops him and says, "You can't go in there." Inside the room, Tom is using the syringe to put the medication in Lien's I.V. When John comes into the room, Tom is finished, but still holding the I.V. John asks Tom why is he touching the I.V. Tom tells John that Lien's tubing was all tangled and he was just fixing it. John checks everything out and says that it looks ok and tells Tom that the next time he is to call a nurse to take care of such things. John tells Tom that there is something new that he wants to try on Lien. Tom argues with John a little but John informs him that he is her doctor. Tom informs John that he is her father. John says that they are going to have to try something different soon and he leaves. Ben tells Tom, when John is gone, that anything that John wants to try will negate what they have just administered. Ben tells him that they have to hold John off as long as possible. Tom asks when will they need to administer the next dose and Ben tells him soon. He adds that for now all they can do is wait and pray. Ben walks over to Lien, puts his hand on her head and starts to pray.

At the Lakeview, Hal and Emily are at one table and Craig and Cass Winthrop are at another table. Hal is telling Emily that he has found evidence that Craig did not set the bomb for Barbara. Emily tells him to let the guy take the rap for it anyway. Hal says that as much as he hates Craig Montgomery, he can't let him take the rap for something that he didn't do. Hal influences Emily not to run the story about Craig in The Intruder. Emily finally agrees and then gets a call on her cell phone. When she hangs up, she tells Hal that the phone call was one of her reporters telling her that the footprints that were found outside the boathouse matched Craig's.

Over at Craig's table, Cass is very upset with Craig and demands that he tell the truth about where he was the night of the bombing. Craig tells Cass that he did go to the boathouse, but he didn't go inside. He adds that he got there and saw the look on Barbara's face and turned and left. Cass asks if he is to believe that Craig went all the way there and then didn't stay to see what Barbara had to say to Jack. Craig says that when he saw the look on Barbara's face, he knew that she was going to press charges. He realized that he needed to raise some cash and fast and Hong Kong was the place to do that. So, he left and went to his apartment to get some things together and he knows the rest from there. Cass asks how his money clip was found inside the building. Craig says that he said before that he gave it to Barbara earlier that day. Cass tells Craig that he has lied to the police and he has lied to his lawyer. He asks Craig how he thinks this looks. Cass tells him that at best the jury will think he plotted Barbara's murder or at worst, he walked away from a burning building with his wife in it. Craig says that he has slit his own throat and now all he can do is bleed to death.

When Hal hears that Craig's footprints have been found at the crime site, he charges over to Craig's table. He tells him that he can't believe that he would leave Barbara in an exploding building to die. Craig tells him that he doesn't know what he is talking about. Hal starts to yell at Craig. Craig reminds him that Hal had told him he pretty much didn't do it. Hal says was believing that until the footprints showed up. Hal yells at Craig that he is going down. Emily grabs Hal and pushes him out of the restaurant with Hal yelling, "You're going down, Montgomery. You're going down!!"

Simon is on his way to find Katie. As he is flying along, he gets a message over the radio that he is heading for a storm and should turn back. Simon starts to think about how Katie has lied and schemed against him. He radios back and asks for a new coordinate. The radio person asks where he would like to go. Simon tells him that he wants to go to some island where there are a lot pretty girls and some booze. After he gets turned around, he starts to think about Katie again. He remembers the fun times they had had. He remembers Katie smile and how much she loves him. He radios again and tells the person that he is turning back and they shouldn't try to stop him. He heads for the island to rescue Katie.

On the island, Katie is in the middle of an attitude change and it is freaking Henry out. Henry decides to shake things up and gets a great idea. He sits Katie down and asks her to marry him. She jerks her hand away and her mouth drops open. She starts to yell at him and jumps up and starts to throw coconuts at him. He has achieved what he was after. She tells him that she is married and she is now and will remain a Frazier. Cooley walks up in the middle of their fight and settles them down. He brings Katie some flowers and tells her a myth about the flowers. The legend with the flowers is that if you viciously destroy the flowers, the person will be cursed. But, if you gently pick the petals off the flowers and throw them into the sea, the sailor will find peace and the person will be granted their most secret wish. Katie loves the story and asks the two men to leave her by herself for a while. Cooley tells "Hank" to come along with him and let the little girly be by herself. Henry says that he will come, but he better never call him Hank again. After the men are gone, Katie looks at the flowers and says that she can't believe that she is this desperate. She goes to the edge of the water and starts to pick the petals off the flower. She closes her eyes as she drops the petals in the water and says, "My only wish is to see Simon again."

Hal says they know who did it, Craig's shoe print was there and that he must have be the one to do it. Emily asks if that's the cop talking or the man whose wife was taken by another man. Says asks if he was there, why didn't he help Barbara; Emily says that may make him a coward, but not a killer. She asks him to think who else had motive.

Rose tells Craig she has a message for him, Bryant's trust fund is due in a couple of days. Craig taunts Rose as being Lucinda's flunky and asks her what is the big payoff. He says that if Rose doesn't do exactly what Lucinda wants, she won't get a thing. She snaps back that it doesn't matter what she gets, it will be more than where she came from.

Lily tries again to explain the clues and that if they were really gone, she would feel it. Emma asks Lily to stop. She tells Emma that she heard Damian's voice, but Emma tells Lily she is being selfish for putting Faith trough this.

BRO New York Office:

Craig entered the office and saw Lucinda on the phone telling someone it was imperative to find Paul as soon as possible. Craig wanted to know what she and Barbara's staff was doing working on the holiday. She told him that she has BRO stock and she is making sure that the business is kept running while Barbara was in the hospital. She told him that the corporate accounts are frozen so there is no money for the attempted murderer to get a hold of. Craig looked at Barbara's sketched for the 2002 Spring line. Lucinda told him that with those sketches they would have no problem in keeping Barbara's business going while she is in the hospital. He accused Lucinda of having Barbara's accounts frozen to keep him from paying back Bryant's trust fund. He told her he was going to repay the loan. Lucinda told him that maybe he would, but not at the expense of Barbara. Craig got the attention of the staff and made an announcement. He said that he was now in charge of BRO since Barbara was in a coma and Paul was unavailable. Craig said as of this moment he's in charge of BRO and he fired Barbara's staff. He had guards there to make sure that everyone would leave. Lucinda assured them that she would get this straightened out and would hire them back the next day. Craig said from now on, BRO business would be handled in Oakdale. Lucinda told Craig to enjoy it while he could and walked out.

The Hospital:

Margo was upset when they told her what he was doing. She wanted to know if John and Bob were in the dark. Tom told her he doesn't care if he gets in hot water; he had to do everything he could to save his daughter. They talked about the decision that Margo made with Casey years ago. She said she understood what he was going through. Bob and Lisa walked in and asked if there was any improvement. Lisa said she had a dream and it was so real. She said they were all together watching the fireworks, including Lien. Lien opened her eyes and was gasping for air. Tom called out for Ben. Lien said, "I can breath." Everyone was so excited and began asking questions all at once. When she heard the fireworks, she wanted to know what the noise was about. Ben carried her to the window so she could watch the fireworks display.

Outside Barbara's room, Jack was playing with Parker. He told Carly that he was going in to visit with Barbara and would be back in a few minutes. As he opened the door, he saw Julia talking to the unconscious Barbara. When she saw Jack, she asked him not to leave. Julia told Jack that the doctor gave her special permission to visit Barbara. She said she had no idea that Barbara was hurt so badly. She told him she would have been to see Barbara sooner, but it was so traumatic the way she heard that Barbara was injured. She told him she was in shock when Carly accused her of setting the bomb because she wanted him dead. She asked Jack if he thought she could ever want him dead. Jack didn't answer and said he'd better leave. She asked him not to leave yet. She told him that he must feel sorry for not being able to save Barbara from being hurt. They argue about whether he did all he could to save Barbara.

John saw Carly and Parker waiting for Jack and stopped to talk to them. Carly defended Craig when John talked about Craig being responsible for Barbara being in the hospital. John couldn't believe that Carly could defend him. John wondered if Craig was paying Carly to defend him.

Julia walked out of Barbara's room and stared daggers at Carly. She told Jack with disgust that she knew now why he wanted to leave Barbara's room so soon, because Carly was waiting for him. When she saw Parker she walked over to talk to him. Carly didn't want Julia near Parker and told him to go to Jack. Julia told Carly that it was good that Parker was there or she would have clawed her face off. As Julia walked off, Carly told John and Jack "Julia is totally around the bend." John asked her how she was able to derive at that diagnosis. He told her she should be more charitable to people whose lives she had ruined. As Carly walked away, John tried to warn Jack about Carly ruining his life too.

Abigail asked how Barbara was. Jennifer told her that she is so sorry about the way she treated her mom and she hoped that Barbara could hear her when she told her that she loves her. Abigail told her she was sure that Barbara would be OK. She said she knew how Jennifer felt, because she was in the same situation last year when Molly was in a coma.

Craig assured Margo that although he was in the vicinity of the boathouse the night of the explosion, he did not talk to Barbara. Margo found it hard to believe that Craig came all the way out to the boathouse but left without speaking to Barbara and accused him of lying.

Lily asked Lucinda for her assistance in finding Holden and Luke in Malta. Lucinda tried her best to talk Lily out of it to no avail. Lucinda finally agreed to help Lily but insisted on accompanying her to Malta. Lily appreciated her offer but feared that traveling with Lucinda would bring unwanted attention to them. They were interrupted when a courier delivered a package from Algeria. Lily was ecstatic when she opened the package and discovered the contents--it contained the bottle with Holden and Luke's handwritten note!

Simon and Katie took off in the seaplane and left Henry alone on the island with Cooley. To Henry's disbelief, he witnessed a bird running into the propeller of the plane and falling to the ground. Upon examination of the dead bird, he and Cooley discovered Simon's diamond was still clutched in the bird's claws. In the plane, Simon berated Katie for her recklessness but all Katie could think of was that he had kissed her back earlier on the island. When she insisted that he admit his love for her, he reluctantly admitted that in his own "small" way, he did love her.

Carly told Jack about Craig's job offer but as she suspected, he was dead set against it. They argued and Carly reluctantly agreed that it was a bad idea.

Emily presented Hal with a list of Special Forces people with knowledge of bombs. The list included Tom Hughes as well as a former employee of Montgomery & Associates. They located the former employee, Albert Norville, in a bar working as the bartender.
