At Holden's house, Abigail is nervous about having Dr. Michaels re-hypnotized her. Holden encourages her that everyone will be there to support her. Aaron listens to Abigail agonize over the details of Nick's murder in the shadows. He also hears how caring and supportive Holden is toward Abigail. Holden sees him, and introduces them to each other. After Holden leaves, Aaron asks Abigail "Is he always that full of it?" Abigail defends Holden's honor and tells him about her experience when she first came to Oakdale and Holden was there for her. Abigail offers her ear if Aaron ever wants to talk. Molly, Jake, and Dr. Michaels come over to try the hypnosis again.

Dr. Michaels starts the therapy and hypnotizes Abigail. Dr. M leads Abigail to Nick's room on the night of the murder. She sees Nick dead on the floor, then she sees Mary. Mary yells, "Why did you kill him Abigail! Why did you do it!" Abigail snaps out of it and accepts the fact that she's the one who killed Nick. Everyone tries to help Abigail reinterpret her memories. Aaron comes in after they all leave and they talk about her memories. Aaron thinks it's funny that she wants to remember something very important, and he's trying to forget his past.

Margo tells Craig at the station that Jack agreed to James' terms: Barbara for Carly and Emily. Margo hears noise from the interrogation room, and they discover Officer Greene. Craig snickers and says, "If this is decoy Barbar...where, oh where could the real Barbar be?" He pushes for Margo to let him help because he doesn't want Jack to get all the credit when Carly is rescued.

Babs and Jack discuss the rendezvous with James at the Old Mill. Jack sees through Barbara's charade and asks her how Will is doing. Barbara unveils herself and pleads with Jack, "I have to be here Jack. Please! Please don't tell me to leave!" Jack says, "You can't make things right, by sacrificing yourself." "I can do this! I'm not afraid!" Jack relents and agrees to let her help, but he recovers the gun Barbara stole from Officer Greene. They hear footsteps outside and Hal walks in. "I want to be a part of this. I have to be here for Emily!" James calls Jack and tells him to drive all night to Jollop, Tennessee. He tells Jack to look for an old carnival at the edge of town. "I'll be waiting at Twilight." Jack asks Hal if his gun is loaded and they all take off for Tennessee.

Kim and Dr. Dixon are having a meal with Parker, when Rosanna (Carly's sister) walks in. John invites Rosanna to come over later for dinner, but she doesn't think it's necessary, "You see, I'll be leaving town in a few days and I'll be taking Parker with me." She then pulls out a court order "giving me temporary custody." John doesn't like anything she has to say. She threatens to get the police to force John to give up custody. John picks up Parker and says he'll drive Parker to the police station himself. Meanwhile, Kim calls Tom and tells him to meet them all at the station.

When they all arrive at the station, Margo confirms that John must give Parker up after looking over the court order, with one stipulation: Rosanna can't leave the state. Rosanna moves to take Parker to her suite at the Lakeview, when Tom arrives. He reviews the court order, but he too can't find anything to stop Rosanna. She moves in again to take Parker. Craig plays horse with Parker in a playful way, and before anyone realizes it, he gallops out the door with Parker on his back. Margo halfheartedly chases after him, but she's too late. Margo puts out an APB on Craig, but that's not good enough for Rosanna. She says, "I want Craig arrested and charged with kidnapping." Margo laughs and says, "You can't arrest Craig. Trust me. We've tried. It doesn't work!" Rosanna isn't amused. She demands action, so Margo calls Evelyn and tells her to write a warrant for Craig's arrest.

In a car, Craig is settling Parker into a car seat and then he mutters to himself, "Alright Jack-o, you may have gotten to Carly first, but guess who saved her son?"

Holden is upset because Abigail left with Aaron after Holden specifically told her not to leave the house. Lily tries to get Holden to relax.

While they are at Java, they see Rose and Paul and notice that he is proposing.

Paul begins his proposal with three different rings: a "decoder ring," a "mood ring" and a "disco dazzler ring." He tells Rose she has to choose one. Then he hands her a brown bag and inside is a beautiful engagement ring. He puts it on her finger as everyone at Java watches him get onto one knee. Rose notices that Abigail is watching and goes over to her table and asks her not to say anything to Lily. Rose says she wants to tell her herself. Rose is introduced to Aaron and wishes Abigail luck at the trial.

When Aaron and Abigail return home, Holden is furious. He tells Aaron he is disappointed with him and orders Abigail to go upstairs, get dressed, and think about the trial.

Craig is arrested for kidnapping Parker. Margo brings him to the police station and asks Craig to hand Parker over. Rosanna comes in and tells Craig she will eventually get Parker and she will take him away. Craig says, "No wonder Carly hates you." He tells Rosanna that she doesn't know Parker and probably couldn't even pick him out of a playground. Rosanna says she has a responsibility to her nephew. Craig explains how Parker's parents were victimized by the evil James Stenbeck and says that taking Parker away from his family and friends would only frighten him. Rosanna says that Parker needs protecting. Craig says, "You hate Carly that much." Her reply is, "I'm here for Parker."

At the cottage, Katie and Simon are watching Parker. While he plays, Katie talks to Simon about Dahlia's watch and shows him her first check from the video sales. Katie says she is upset with the whole "Dahlia thing" but she believes that Simon did not kill Dahlia. Their conversation gets interrupted by the police. Katie leaves with Parker and tells Simon to distract the police. Simon eventually gets the police to leave. Once he is alone, he makes a phone call and says, "Katie is gone. Can you come over?"

Katie, with Parker in tow, shows up in Nancy Hughes' car. Katie asks Nancy for a favor - to babysit Parker for just a little while. Nancy is hesitant but finally agrees. Katie leaves and promises to be back shortly. Nancy takes out her cell phone and says she will get to the bottom of this.

Back at the police station, Margo receives word that Parker is with Katie. She tells Rosanna this is good news because Katie always seems to mess things up.
