Jade says he will if he knows the answers in advance.... Katie learns that Nick knows about her getting the medallion and rushes to tell Mike, but Nick beats her to it. Mike reminds Katie that she promised to stop listening to Carly's insinuations about Nick. Katie shows Mike the two medals and insists she only went snooping to protect Mike. Mike points out that sounds a lot like Carly's usual line about lying to Jack. Katie tells Mike it doesn't matter anyway, since Jack checked out Nick's alibi and it's solid. Mike promises Katie that he'll take care of Nick. But, instead of calling his cousin, Mike calls his brother to talk about that trip Nick took thirteen years ago....

Hal tells Nick he has 48 hours to give him his new contact information, or he'll send people out to find Nick. Hal leaves, and Jack tries to get Nick to tell him why he's really leaving, but Nick says it's because Carly won't quit trying to get him in trouble.

Carly and Katie have Del tied up in Carly's basement. Del says that the man who murdered Maya Gold was named Nick Kasnoff, not Mike Kasnoff. Katie tries to call Jack on her cell phone but can't get any reception; Carly tries to go upstairs to get her phone, but the stairs collapse, having been hacked at by Del in his attempts to find the rubies.

She tries to tell him where she is and what's happening, but the connection is bad, and then Del, who has managed to untie himself, grabs Katie, then tells her he's getting out of there. She climbs out of the same window that Carly went through as Del goes up the broken stairs.

Carly goes to the police station looking for Jack or Hal, but neither of them is there. She asks them to page Jack for her and then leaves, going to Mike's place to try to get his help. Katie comes running up to the house and tells Carly that Del got away. They go in, but Mike isn't there. They hear a car starting in the garage and go out to find Nick trying to take Katie's car. They both get in the car, and Carly says, "Going somewhere, Nick?"

Jack gets to Carly's place just as Del is leaving and demands to know who he is and what's going on. Del makes up a story about being mugged, but then Mike comes rushing in, grabs Del, and asks him where Katie is. Del then tells Jack and Mike that Katie and Carly attacked him while he was looking for the rubies, and Mike goes to the basement to see if Katie's still there. When he comes back upstairs, he hears Del telling Jack that Katie had thought her husband killed Maya, but it was a different Kasnoff. Mike tells Jack he means it was Nick.

Luke goes to see his grandmother, and he tells Lucinda that Lily wants him to see a shrink and that he thinks Lily is having him followed. He's worried that Lily will never accept him for who he is. Lucinda tells Luke that Lily is just afraid for him, that he'll suffer because of being gay and that his life will be hard. Luke wants to know why it's so much easier for Lucinda to accept that he's gay than for Lily; she asks him if she can change the fact that he's gay, and when he says no, she replies, "Then I accept it." Luke tells her he'd actually been more afraid to tell her he was gay than to tell his parents; Lucinda is stunned by this and tells Luke that one thing having cancer taught her is that it's most important to simply love the people in your life.

Damian shows up at Lily's house without warning, and she isn't happy to see him. He assures her that his life has changed and that he's no longer a marked man with enemies who want to see him dead. She tells him she doesn't think she should just take his word for that. He asks about Luke, telling her he didn't find out that Lily was trying to reach him until after Luke had his kidney transplant. He says that he wants to be sure Luke is okay, even though he looked okay to him. Lily realizes Damian is the one who has been following Luke. She tells Damian that Luke actually accused her of hiring a private investigator to follow him, and confused, Damian asks why on earth he'd think such a thing. She tells him it's normal teenager stuff, but he senses there's something more that Lily isn't telling him about Luke. Damian tells Lily that he wants Luke to have a Grimaldi family signet ring that has been in his family for generations, and that one day, when Luke is married, he can give it to one of his children, and Damian will know that he will always be a small part of Luke's life. Again, Damian can tell from Lily's reaction that something is bothering her about Luke. Just then, Luke comes home.
