Nico sits in an alley playing his guitar but is interrupted by some thugs who take his guitar. The thugs tell Nico that they heard he has been staying at the Santos place and wonders whether he is too good for them now. Nico explains that it is just a job. The thugs then tell him that he should be able to handle things then. When Nico wonders what they are wanting him to do, they tell him that they want him to make sure that the fashion show does not happen. The thugs tell Nico that they are tired of Santos and his richy-rich friends coming around on his turf changing things. Pressing Nico against the wall and banging on Nico's guitar, they are insisting on knowing whether he can handle the problem. Nico doesn't want to get involved, but the thugs threaten to take care of it their way, which would be a whole lot worse. Nico, not wanting them to handle this, tells them that he's got it.

Marah runs into Tammy at Company. Tammy was waiting for Joey. Marah tells Tammy that she has feelings for Sandy, but Sandy doesn't feel the same way. After a brief visit, Joey shows up to meet Tammy. Joey is surprised that Tammy isn't mad at him. This is the first time they have seen or talked to each other since they got in trouble. Joey apologizes to her and tells her that she deserves so much better than a dirty old shed, and he invites her to a ball. Before she has a chance to answer, Joey comments about how her Uncle Edmund came through for them, and continues to tell her that Edmund has pulled some fast ones in the past. Tammy tells him to shut up, and tells him that her Uncle Edmund is off limits. Joey apologizes, and Tammy tells him that she is just so tired of her uncle getting a bad rap for something he did in the past. Joey seems to understand since he is having trouble with the bad rap business. After Joey leaves, Marah and Tammy join tables again. By the conversation, Marah begins to wonder whether Tammy has had sex with Joey. Tammy tells her that sometimes she wants to, but other times she wants to wait. Marah tells her not to take things a step further than she wants to. Marah then begins to tell her that when it is the right time, she will know.

At the Beacon, Tammy begins to question Edmund about balls. Edmund seems to think that she should know all there is about balls, but Tammy reminds him that she has never went to a ball with a date, only as a child. Looks like Tammy wants some dancing lessons.

Reva finds Sandy breaking into the Lewis safe. Reva begins to preach how her daughter befriended him and her husband hired him, and she refuses to hear any kind of explanation as to why he is stealing from them. Reva begins to wonder whether this was his plan from the beginning. Sandy comments that she isn't much of a psychic and tells her that if he is going down for this, he will take her whole family with him. Reva doesn't quite understand how he could possible threaten her family, but sitting on the desk in between the two of them is a laptop with Jonathan Randall's account. Reva walks around to the other side of the desk and mentions that she is calling Josh. She starts to dial but gets side-tracked when she sees Jonathan's account on the computer screen. Sandy claims that he didn't pull it up, but Reva doesn't believe him. Reva instantly wants to know how he knows her son. Sandy tells Reva that he knows Jonathan from boarding school and claims that Jonathan sent him there to see what his family was really like. Sandy claims that he only wanted a little cash to get back home and would have paid them back. Reva doesn't believe Sandy and then notices a tattoo on Sandy's skin that she envisioned was on her son. Sandy tells her that she is jumping into conclusions. Reva calls Jonathan's adoptive mother. Reva asks her when the last time she saw Jonathan was. Since Jonathan is supposed to be in another country at boarding school, it has been a while. She then asks her if Jonathan has a tattoo, and she describes it like the one Sandy has. Sandy is in the background demanding she hang up and tells her to stop being his fairy god mother. Reva remembers when she told Jonathan as a child that she would be his fairy god mother if he wanted her to. Reva begins to get teary eyed and puts her hands on Sandy-Jonathan's cheek. Reva begins to explain how she felt after leaving Jonathan in San Cristobel and tells him that she has always wondered what he was like and whether she made the right choice. She continues to tell him that every year on his birthday, she would walk to the lake and watch the sun set and imagine that her son was on the other side of the lake, and she would blow kisses in hopes that he felt those kisses. Jonathan tells her that he felt the kisses. Reva begins to shake in amazement that he just admitted he was Jonathan. Jonathan explains that his nickname is Sandy from hanging out at the beach. Jonathan begins to get angry with Reva and tells her that he did not have a good life, and his adoptive father was brutal and wonders what kind of selfish person would leave a child to deal with that. Jonathan begins to explain that he didn't have plans on staying, but he became friends with Marah, and then Shayne had an accident. Reva then begins to realize that he was leaving town because his sister fell in love with him. Reva apologizes and tells him that if he can't forgive her, he can take the money, but she really wants him to stay.

Nico explains that progress in this area scares a lot of people and they worry about their businesses and homes. Danny seems to think that Nico already knew about the disinterest of the fashion show by the Fifth Street residents. Nico admits that he ran into some people who want him to side with them in stopping the fashion show.

After he hangs up, he tells Reva that he will stay under two conditions. 1. He wants to tell Marah himself that he is her brother. and 2. He wants to wait until after the fashion show because he doesn't want to spoil the most important night of her life. He feels that if he can't make things right between him and Marah, then he can't make anything right here. Once Jonathan leaves, he goes straight to the museum.
