Craig is at Java Underground going through the chocolates that he had sent to Lucinda. Some of the chocolates were laced with poison and Craig is going through and sorting them. Emily comes in and shows Craig the pictures that she took when Lucinda had her "spell" at the Worldwide board meeting. Craig tells her that they have to make the story very respectable because stockholders all over the world will be reading it. He tells Emily that he has to take the rest of Lucinda's chocolates to her at the hospital. As Craig is leaving, Hal comes staggering up. He yells at Craig and says that he has ruined his life. Craig offers Hal a ride home. Hal takes a swing at Craig and misses. Craig says if he can't help him then he is going to leave. After Craig is gone, Hal picks himself up and goes to the bar and yells for the bartender. Isaac comes over and tells him to do everyone a favor and go home. Emily comes over and tells Isaac that she will take Hal home. At first Hal refuses to let Emily take him home but then he gives in with her persuasion.
At the hospital, Rose is trying to comfort Lucinda. Lucinda tells Rose that she came through for her today and she won't forget it. John comes in and tells Lucinda that the tests they took proved that she was given a hallucinogenic. John questions Lucinda about what she had eaten that day. She tells him that Matthew is back and he supervised all her food preparation. John tells her to think real hard. Did she eat something that Matthew would not have prepared? Rose speaks up and reminds Lucinda about the chocolates. Lucinda says that the chocolates were from her granddaughter. She wonders who would have tampered with the U.S. Mail? John suggests that they didn't come from her granddaughter at all. He tells Lucinda that someone could have sent them to her in Lucy name. Lucinda says that Craig must be really sick to pull this off. John tells her that they must get the chocolates from the office so they can run test on them. Lucinda tells Rose to call Matthew and tell him to go to the office and get the box of chocolates and bring them to the hospital. Lucinda gets upset thinking about all the things she can't put in her mouth for fear that Craig would have laced it with something. Craig sticks his head in the door and asks if Lucinda is feeling better. Lucinda tells him to leave and he says that he brought her the box of chocolates that she got at the office. He adds that he thought it might make her feel better to have them there. Lucinda starts throwing out all kinds of accusations about Craig putting poison in the chocolates. Craig chuckles at her and says that she must really be losing it. He takes out a chocolate and eats it. He asks if he poisoned the chocolates would he be eating them. Lucinda tells him to get out. Rose (acting as if she is Lily) escorts Craig to the door and pushes him out. Craig takes the rest of the chocolate and spits it out on the floor. Back in Lucinda's hospital room, John suggests that she go away for a rest and where no one can lace her food with anything. Lucinda fights this idea. John tells her that it is more like a spa. Rose encourages her and then she agrees to go. John leaves and Rose asks Lucinda if she passed her test. Lucinda says that she sure did and more.

At Craig and Barbara's suite, Barbara was feeling down about her family situation as she wrote out corporate checks for her business. Craig approached her about a business proposition involving Worldwide. He told her that the stock was falling since Lucinda was hospitalized and they should jump on it while the price was so low. Barbara wouldn't make a move unless she spoke with Paul, but Craig tried to convince her they shouldn't wait. Barbara got upset with Craig and told him to back off.
Simon sat in his room thinking about where Katie had gone with the note she left for him still unfound on his bed stand.
Katie, asleep on the island, dreamt of Simon saving her and telling her he really loved her. As she awoke, she found herself on top of Henry and she screamed.
Lien lay asleep in the hospital as Ben and Tom looked after her. Tom asked Ben what was wrong with her. Ben revealed that Lien had an often fatal neurological disease called K and Jack.
Rose stopped at Lily's to find Margo there still investigating the shooting. Margo told Rose no one had heard from Lily or Holden and Rose took off to find them in Chicago.
Lily was pacing at the dock remembering the explosion from the night before. A man from the search team told her there still wasn't any information, but a search team had been sent out to look for Holden and Luke. Lily prayed they would be okay.
Craig apologized to Barbara for pressuring her, but continued to try to convince her that they should buy the stock, but Barbara stuck to her guns and said not until she consulted with Paul. She had to leave to pick up Will. Craig pondered using her signature stamp to write out checks for the stock himself as Simon walked in complaining he had to do community service. Craig said he'd take care of it, but Simon really wanted to let him know that Katie was missing and he was worried. Craig said not to be, Katie could take care of herself.
Katie was disgusted to wake and find Henry instead of Simon and they fought about their situation on the island as Katie noticed fresh footprints in the sand.
Ben told Tom that Lien's condition was probably a result of prolonged exposure to toxins - most likely from when she lived in Viet Nam during the war. Tom began to blame himself as he helped to drop those toxins on the country when he was in the service.
Rose showed up at the docks and Lily told her what happened and said she wouldn't leave until she knew Holden and Luke would be returning with her. Rose tried to keep Lily's spirits up and told her everyone was fine, but Lily stopped her and said it was all her fault. She was being punished for almost leaving her family a few months ago. Rose told her never to blame herself and she would stay with her until Holden and Luke returned.
Katie thought the footprints were Simon's and she fantasized that he had come to save her, but Henry brought her back to reality. Katie took off to follow the footprints with Henry in tow. A man came out of the bushes upset to learn that people had landed on his island again.
Craig escorted Simon out and told him if he was so worried maybe he should go look for her. Alone, Craig called Cass to come over to see him about some investments he wanted to make.
Lily couldn't help thinking she was to blame for the whole mess, but Rose said that because of everything that has happened between Lily and Holden, she now knew how much Holden loved her. Lily's hope was still fading away, but Rose tried to convince her to hold on to her faith. Lily hugged her and thanked her for coming. The man from the search team returned - he had found something. He showed Lily and Rose Luke's stuffed bear, torn and burned. Lily broke down and Rose tried to tell her it didn't mean anything.
Ben told Tom that there was no reason to give up hope and that new treatments are being developed all the time. He had been researching the disease and said there was a chance Lien could beat it. Margo and John joined them and Margo apologized to an upset Tom that she didn't let him in on what was going on with Lien. They left to visit Lien and Ben laid into John for consulting him on the case without telling him it was Lien. John broke it to Ben that he would not be Lien's doctor.
Henry and Katie continued to argue over whose footprints they found. Katie said they have to find out in case it is someone dangerous. Just then, coconuts were being hurled at them and a man yelled out to get off the island as Henry and Katie ran.
Alone, Tom told Lien he loved her very much, but wanted to know why she didn't confide in him. Lien wanted to fight it on her own. Tom apologized for what happened to her during the war, but Lien said it wasn't his fault and she wouldn't change anything in her life. She said if not for the war, he wouldn't be her father.
Simon met up with Margo at the hospital and told her Katie was still missing and asked her to put out an APB on her. Margo said her resources were all tied up at Lily's because of the shooting. Simon, worried about Lily, wondered if he should call her. Margo told him to concentrate on Katie and leave Lily alone.
Rose comforted Lily and said not to give up hope and Lily told Rose to keep telling her everything will be okay. Rose told Lily she would stay with her for as long as it took.
Craig stamped a bunch of blank checks as Cass knocked on the door. He told Cass he wanted him to buy Worldwide stock as soon as it reached $40 a share and to keep buying it until the stock goes up. Skeptical, Cass asked Craig if Barbara was aware of this and Craig lied to say she was. After he left, Craig said to himself that by the time Barbara figured out what was going on, she will have made a mint and he would own Worldwide.
Back at the hospital, Ben told Lien that he was glad she was feeling better because they have a lot of plans to make.
Henry and Katie were scared about who was after them and discovered that all their stuff was missing. Henry buried a "survival kit," but it was only stocked with martini makings. Katie was not happy and prayed for Simon to find them.
The man from the search team returned and told Lily a new team was coming in. With her hope dwindling again, Rose said everything would be okay and the two embraced again. Recap --->
Carly checked her dress designs and wondered if Barbara would really stake her new design business.

She said that since Jack couldn't be there, he would want her to go.

Emma couldn't believe it and began sobbing. Emma asked if the divers found anything besides Luke's teddy bear. They told her no. Lily said she had to see Faith and hold her baby. She and Emma went upstairs to be with Faith. Joe told Emma that he and Rose would call the rest of the family to let them know. Joe told Rose that at first he never understood why she wanted to stay in Oakdale, but now he sees that she was there for a purpose. He said that it was good that she was there to help Lily. Rose agreed but asked how she would get through it herself. Joe told Rose that she was just the person to help in this situation because she is strong and the rest of the family really needed her.

Removing Carly's name from her latest sketches, Craig places the drawings where Barbara will find them. She admires them and then realizes they are Carly's work. She lets Craig believe that she has fallen for his claim that they belong to Concepcion, a Montegan designer and promises to put them in her fall line and would like a meeting with this mystery person. Barbara wants to know a little about this person but all Craig will tell her is, she is married with 2 kids.
Meanwhile at Worldwide Rose looks for any memo or note that would give her an idea where Lucinda has gone. When two of her top people report that Lucinda needs to report to the office to handle a possible takeover effort, Rose runs to Lily with the news. Still in mourning over the loss of Holden and her son, Lily gives Rose her power of attorney and asks her to handle the threat and calls Tom to draw up the proxy for Rose. Back at Worldwide Rose quickly orders Lucinda's two top men to try to find out who is buying up all the stock as it tumbles in value. She then asks them to also find out all they can about Craig, pointing out how concerned he was when Lucinda became ill.
Simon searches through wastebaskets in his suite for any clue to Katie's possible whereabouts. He discovers that Katie and Henry may have rented a plane with Henry as her pilot. Hearing about Holden, Simon rushes to be with Lily and becomes suspicious when he learns that no bodies were found after the explosion in the Chicago harbor. This in turn gets Lily's hopes up and makes her wonder who is behind this. As Katie and Henry fight on the deserted island, Cooley secretly watches them.
Rose was concerned when she learned that an anonymous buyer was buying up all of the World Wide stock and called her father for assistance. She told Joe of her suspicions that Craig was behind everything that had been happening lately, from Lucinda's mental episode to the buying up of shares. They learned that the person buying up all of the stock was one Cass Winthrop from Bay City.
Lisa recognized Carly's sketches immediately when Barbara showed them to her. Barbara was furious when she realized that Craig had lied to her about the identity of the designer and suspected Craig of wanting Carly for himself. She decided to confront Carly and demand that she stay out of her life once and for all.
Jack arrived home from New York and Carly broke the news to him about the explosion and Holden and Luke's disappearance. The two of them decided that life was too precious to waste being apart for one more minute and they decided to move in together. After he left to break the news to Julia, Carly received another visitor--Craig Montgomery. Craig told Carly that Barbara loved her designs but admitted that he didn't tell her they belonged to Carly. Carly was worried about Barbara's reaction when she found out the truth but Craig assured her they could market the designs through a third party and Barbara would never know. Carly was so excited about the prospect that she impulsively kissed Craig, not knowing that Barbara was watching through the window!
Iva interrupted Simon comforting a shaken Lily and accused him of trying to take advantage of her grief. Jake and Molly arrived at that moment and Iva asked Jake to escort Simon out of the house. Lily recounted the details of the explosion to Jake. He and Simon decided to do a little private investigating on their own. Lily was crushed when Luke's sock with traces of his blood on it were recovered from the lake.
