Selena pours her heart out to Buzz, and admits that she will probably never tell Drew that she is her daughter. Buzz disagrees with her and thinks that she needs to go ahead and tell her the truth. Drew comes into the diner and can see immediately that there is something wrong with Selena. They instantly start fighting and Drew tells Selena that she hopes that her long lost daughter knows how lucky she is not to have Selena as a mother. Bill comes to Cedars to visit Josh, but finds Teri locked up in his room. He gets her out of there, and ends up comforting her. He guesses that she has had a bad past experience being locked up somewhere else accidentally, as she was quite hysterical. She offers to take him to dinner at the Towers some night.

Reva is so happy to be spending her holiday with Cassie and the new baby, and she hints to Josh that she may like to have a baby also. When Cassie is asked how the events unfolded with the birth of her baby with the help of Dinah, she completely covers for her and acts like Dinah was doing her a favor and saved her life. Reva sees through this and later demands that Cassie tell her the truth. After hearing from Cassie about the hellish time that resulted from Dinah's involvement, Reva begs Cassie to rethink about telling Hart the real truth.

Dinah cries when she sees Cassie holding her baby, and tells Hart that it should have been their baby, not hers. Cassie later talks to Hart and announces that she will go to Cross Creek for a few days of relaxation (Reva will send a nurse with her to care for the baby). Hart asks if he can come along, but Cassie declines. She tells him that he needs to think about Dinah and make a choice. Hart starts coming up with the many excuses about why he needs to stay with Dinah, such as her upcoming cosmetic surgery and her terribly painful past, but Cassie is not impressed.

Danny Santos drops by and delivers a big wet kiss to Michelle right in front of Jesse. Jesse, blind with rage, tries to attack Danny. Later, out in the hallway, Danny tells Drew that he kissed Michelle in order to prove his theory that Jesse, when provoked, could be violent enough to kill. Meanwhile, inside the apartment, Michelle confesses to Jesse that Danny has been bothering her for some time, in an attempt, she feels, to coerce Jesse into confessing to murder. She tells Jesse about the first time Danny kissed her at the diner. Jesse then secretly decides his only choice is to leave town forever in order to keep Danny away from Michelle. He confides in Bill and asks him to take care of Michelle. As Danny Santos leaves Drew's apartment, he is confronted by a menacing mobster-type individual in a trenchcoat who tells him that he has 48 hours to wrap up his brother's murder or else Jesse, Bill, Drew and Michelle will be killed.

Dinah and Hart painfully try to evaluate their relationship now that Cassie and her new baby have returned to Springfield. In a last ditch effort to hang onto Hart, Dinah comes clean and tells him the truth about why she really went to Chicago to see Cassie. Hart, even more confused about the two women in his life, leaves Dinah in tears and rushes off to find Cassie and their son at Cross Creek.

A cozy Blake and Ben awaken after a night of passion to find Holly, agitated and already nipping at the brandy, in their living room. When Holly sees Ben, clad only in his pajama bottoms after obviously having spent the night, she is furious and accuses Blake of throwing her life away and compromising her children's welfare. She also knowingly warns Blake that her actions might cause her to be visited by the Stalker. Blake throws her mother out of the house. Moments later, as Blake passionately declares to Ben that she may be falling in love with him, the front door opens and Ross walks in.

When Dietz reminds Danny that he has 48 hours to come up with his brother's killer or else all four of his "friends" will be killed, Danny sends him on his way. Drew overhears Jesse arguing with Bill about why he has to leave town for good. Drew pleads with him to stay and later leaks to Danny who she thinks killed his brother.

Ross enters with the twins just as Blake tells Ben that she's falling in love with him. Ross insists that the two of them join him and India and ring in the New Year together at Millennium. There, Ross toasts to their future after thanking Ben for giving him his freedom. He then admits that he hates them both and toasts to himself for the first time in 20 years.

Readmitting himself to the hospital, Josh tells Frank that he's determined to stay there until Rick gets his blood test results. When Reva tries to give him his shaving kit, he quickly backs away. Curious, Reva searches the kit and ends up rubbing some of his after shave on her wrists. She quickly does everything he asks her to do which makes him realize that the after shave is to blame. Frank confirms that the cologne was spiked with a drug. Reva insists to Frank that Teri is responsible.

Alan is taken aback when a picnic-basket-toting Teri arrives at the front door with an apology and an invitation. When he agrees to share a drink with her, he's intrigued when she knows where he keeps the cork screw. Later, Teri plants the bottle of drugs in Alan's safe.
