At the cottage, Dahlia is drilling into the staircase when she hears a car drive up. She runs upstairs as Simon and Katie walk in. Katie hears a noise upstairs, which she thinks is a cat. Katie wants to bring the kitty a bowl of milk and she starts to walk up the staircase. Simon tries to stop her because he wants to make sure the house is secure first. They decide to go upstairs together and the banister gives way. Simon falls down the stairs right on top of Katie. They both agree they can't stay in the cottage any longer because of Dahlia. They start to get up, but Katie's wrist hurts too much. Simon thinks it's fractured. They take off to have it treated, and Dahlia waltzes down the stairs grinning from ear to ear.

Margo visits Hal at Memorial and tells him about Dr. Weston. He asks about Emily, but Margo doesn't have much to offer. Hal beats himself up for losing Emily in the first place. Margo tries to console him, but it's no good. Margo tells Hal that they have a report that James and Babs have entered Thailand. Hal says, "As long as there's breath in my body, I'm coming after him. He won't get away. I'm gonna get him."

Around the corner, Jack & Carly and Rose & Paul plead with Dr. Dixon to have him perform the surgery instead of Dr. Weston. Weston confidently walks in and smugly says, "Ahh, Carly and Rose. Two of my greatest creations. It's going to be a pleasure to work on you both again." Rose and Carly both gag at the sight of him. Weston looks at Carly and says, "All right kitten. You're up first." After he leaves the room, Rose demands to know the deal he made with Jack. Carly is unsure about letting Weston treat her again, but she sees that it's her only choice.

In a hotel room in Thailand, Barbara is looking out a window when James opens the door for a bellhop wheeling in a large trunk on a dolly. James tips him on the way out. He sees Babs staring into space and says, "Darling, I thought you'd be glued to a mirror, or shooting off fireworks." Barbara turns around revealing her fully restored face, "There's only one thing I feel like shooting." She's concerned that Jack will finds her, and she'll go straight to jail. James tells Barbara that Dr. Weston is in Oakdale right now fixing Rose and Carly's faces, so once they have their faces back, all will be forgotten. "But we do have one fish left to fry, before you are totally exonerated." He opens the trunk revealing an unconscious and gagged Emily. "What have you done with her?!" "After Rose ran off, I decided to put her in cold storage." Emily isn't aged like Rose and Carly. James says, "Let's throw away things we no longer need." He pulls Emily out of the trunk and sets her sedated body on a couch. Barbara wants to bring her to a hospital. James says, "I know that an Emily alive is a big problem. This is your party. You decide what to do with our groggy little friend." Barbara looks at Emily, torn because she doesn't know what to do, and says, "Send her home. Give her life back to her! This is your mess. YOU clean it up." Emily sobs as James starts to put her back into the trunk and tells Babs that he's going to dump her in the harbor. Barbara says that they should just drop her off at a hospital, then leave the country. James balks at that suggestion and says that he and Babs will just have to part ways unless they eliminate Emily. Barbara wonders why he would abandon both of them. James tells Barbara he will leave her, but not alive. "If I wouldn't leave one woman behind who can point a finger at me, why would I leave two?" Emily sobs and Barbara spits at her to, "Shut up! One more word out of you and I'll put you back in that trunk myself!"

In a hospital room, Carly and Jack watch Dr. Weston prepare for the treatment. Carly is happy that Jack is there for comfort. Jack says, "If it's one thing I've learned...I want to spend the rest of my life with you. If you'll have me." Carly coos, "Oh, Jack. Me too." Dr. Hughs then comes over and says they are ready to begin.

Outside the room Rose is worried about Carly, and Paul comforts her. Dr. Hughs walks out of the room followed by Dr. Weston. They say that Carly should be fine, but she's still sedated and bandaged. Dr. Weston walks over to Rose and asks if she's ready for her treatment. She grits her teeth and says she's ready. He reaches up, cradles her chin, and says, "Well, tough luck cookie. 'Cuz I'm not gonna raise a finger to help you." This freaks Paul out. "We had a deal!" "Her case bores me. I'd sooner smear her with honey and cover her with fire-ants." Jack comes out and Weston demands a new deal, "Or else Rose is doomed to...this." Paul offers Weston a new deal of his own. "How bout I break your neck?!" Jack restrains him. Weston says he wants to escape to Spain with a million dollars. Jack asks what happens if the Feds don't agree. Weston says, "Then Rosie can turn all the mirrors toward the wall."

Back in Thailand, James forces Barbara to choose between killing Emily herself, or James killing them both. Emily pleads with Babs for her life and Barbara slaps her so hard she falls to the ground. James says, "That was good. I almost believed you." Barbar says how grateful she is to James for restoring her face to its former glory. Methodically she says, "I owe you. I'll do anything for you." She walks over to a chest, opens it, and pulls out a knife. "Shall I slit her throat? Would that prove to you that I'm yours?" She says she'll need towels to help with the mess Emily will make. James goes out into the hallway, and Barbara's eyes fix on Emily as she points the knife directly at her.

Tom goes to visit Molly who is discussing Jake to Abigail. Abigail then discusses her relationship with Adam. She no longer wants to see him as a boy friend and then Tom walks in. He tells Abigail to be honest because he has raised Adam and knows he can handle anything as long as he gets the truth. Molly later tells Tom she doesn't want Donna and Marley at Jake's party, and she also tells Tom she wants to use some dirt to get the twins. Tom explains that he wanted to do the same thing when trying to get Daniel but when he realized how Danny misses his mom, he wouldn't do it. Molly reconsiders and discusses it with Jake's ghost.

Margo shows up at Katie and Simon's and says they were set up and wants Katie to stay with her and Tom, but Katie decides to stay with Simon at the cottage.

Emily shows up at Barbara and James's suite in a coffin. James wants to kill Emily and leaves Barbara to do it. Barbara can't do it and they attack James in order to get away. Emily wants to call Hal and Barbara tells her why she can't.

Carly freaks out while being bandaged from Weston's treatment; however Jack and the doctors comfort her. Weston decides he doesn't want to do Rose until they renegotiate, and Jack is less than receptive. Meanwhile, Bob tells Rose the treatment was videotaped and he thinks that with John's help and some research he can reproduce the procedure. Rose and Paul agree to go through with it, but John thinks Bob is out of his mind. Recap --->

She looks at Molly and asks if she really wants to go to court and maybe lose everything. Molly says that she could agree to a six-month trial. Everyone is happy and they thank Rosanna for her help. Everyone goes outside the little café to have a time of saying nice things about Jake. Tom speaks first, then Lucinda, and then Abigail recites a poem. As they are talking, Molly looks across the lawn and sees Jake sitting at a table. When Rosanna starts to speak, someone walks up behind Molly and when Molly turns around, she sees Carly. Molly lets out a scream when she sees her beautiful cousin. Carly tells Rose that there is hope. Carly takes Molly's hand and tells her that there is hope for her too.

When Carly is alone, Craig walks up to her and says, "Hi!" Carly replies, "Hello." Carly tells Craig that she is ashamed of herself for any feelings that she had had for him. She tells him that she is going to be happy for the rest of her life with the man that she loves and that doesn't include him. She tells him to go off and hit on the coat check girl. Craig says that he didn't deserve that and he leaves. Jack comes back and asks what Craig wanted and Carly says that it doesn't matter; he is out of her life now. When everyone is gone, Molly is left alone at the café. She goes around and turns off all the lights. Alone in the dark, she puts a quarter in the jukebox and plays a song. She goes to the bar and pours two glasses of booze. She says, "One for me and one for you." She hears Jakes voice say, "It isn't an Irish wake without a dance with the dearly departed." Molly looks up and sees Jake standing there. She gets a big smile on her face. She sets her glass down and starts toward him. As she gets closer and closer to him, he fades away. She wraps her arms around herself and starts to the dark.
