Coop and Lizzie arrive at The Beacon to spend a quite evening alone in the Spaulding suite. Lizzie is nervous as Coop turns on the charm and scrambles away from him for some breathing room. Coop guesses she is nervous about going all the way and asks if this will be her first time. Lizzie prattles on unconvincingly about her past 'experiences' and assures him that while she is not a 'ho-bag or anything' she knows what she is doing. Coop recognizes that she is not telling the truth and that she is a virgin which embarrasses her so that she locks herself in the closet.

Since she refuses to come out, Coop tells her through the door that she is beautiful and he is happy she chose him because he has chosen her, too. Lizzie is moved by his admission and opens the door and jumps into his arms. They resume their passion only to be interrupted by Gus who is there to inform Lizzie that he is the new head of Spaulding. He surprises them by saying he agrees with their relationship and has arranged with Rick for Lizzie to occupy the Bauer garage apartment so the two won't have to sneak around anymore.

Edmund and Dinah arrive at Company unaware that Cassie is to have a surprise baby shower. Dinah complains about the huge belly and her desire to be rid of it to the shocked ears of Blake, Tammy and Mel who are listening in the hallway. When Cassie and Jeffrey arrive the women reveal themselves and demand that Dinah tell Cassie the truth about Dinah's pregnancy. As Edmund and Dinah search for words to defend themselves, Tammy chimes in that Dinah hates being pregnant. Edmund is relieved that the truth is still a secret. He leaves the party after telling Cassie she looks beautiful. Outside, Jeffrey warns Edmund that he is playing with fire if he is manipulating Dinah into believing he cares about her. He reminds him that Hart is the last man Dinah was crazy about and Hart is now six feet under.

Inside, Dinah grows increasingly uncomfortable as Cassie shines the spotlight on her and thanks her for carrying her baby. Dinah accepts the praise but rushes outside. Once away from the party, she tells Edmund that if he doesn't tell Cassie the truth, she will. No one - not even Cassie - deserves what they are doing. Edmund appeases Dinah by hugging her but stares menacingly over her shoulder.

Alan has been processed and led to a cell where he demands to make a phone call. He calls the doctor in charge of Phillip and is barely able to speak before the doctor tells him that she needs payment for Phillip's care. Alan becomes angry and tells her he has no access to his money but will have it for her soon. He demands to speak to his son. Gus arrives and snatches the phone saying 'your son is right here.' Alan thinks Gus is there to help him but is quickly disappointed when Gus says he is only to inform him that he has taken over as the head of Spaulding. Alan is desperate when Gus announces that all of his accounts will be frozen. He begs Gus to reconsider as he is his father. Harley arrives in time to hear Gus tell his dad he will be in jail for a very long time for killing Phillip.

Alan unravels and shouts that Phillip is still alive. Harley is momentarily shocked but recovers as Gus makes jokes about already knowing this as he has seen Phillip at the gas station complaining about gas prices. Alan is not amused and re-states his claim that Phillip is alive. Harley remains unconvinced until Alan warns her that if Phillip is released, he will come after her and finish the job he started. Gus ushers Harley away from the cell since Alan is crazy. He kisses her goodbye in the hallway and leaves to take care of family business. Harley returns to Alan's cell and offers to help Alan to get out of jail if he will take her to Phillip. He agrees.

Frank agrees to take Mallet, Harley and Alan to the place where Alan swears he is keeping Phillip, who he says is very much alive. But when Frank opens the door to the room it is empty except for a few boxes and old filing cabinets. Alan pleads with them to believe that is where he has been keeping Phillip, but frankly, nobody believes him. Alan goes into great detail about how he decorated just like the Spaulding board room so Phillip would be comfortable there, including a model of Springfield, on which Phillip used to spend hours working. Still, no one believes him, and Frank escorts him back to jail. Frank asks Alex for her help and Alex talks with Alan. She is absolutely shocked when he tells her that Phillip is alive. Alan tells her that she has to help find Phillip, that he is too delicate a state to be away from a doctor's care. She tells Frank that she thinks Alan has finally cracked and that Phillip is dead. Frank tells Alex that Alan will spend the rest of his life in jail, and Alex replies that justice for Phillip will finally be done.

Buzz is not happy to see Harley with Mallet at Company, and greets him by asking him when he's leaving. Mallet assures him he is leaving, and just when things were getting interesting...Harley explains to Buzz that Alan has declared that Phillip is alive. Buzz jokes about the TV show, "Dallas," and how Bobby Ewing came back to life. They all laugh, but when Mallet and Buzz talk privately, Buzz tells Mallet that Harley shouldn't be involved in the case any longer. Mallet sticks up for Harley, telling her father that Harley was a good cop and couldn't help thinking about it, and since when could anybody tell her anything about what to do. Buzz at least agrees with that. Harley - who has overheard their conversation - gets up to leave, saying she's going to get the kids and go home. However, her cop's intuition has kicked in...she goes back to the room where Alan says he kept Phillip. She looks around and then searches in a wastebasket. She looks at some papers before finding a model of a building...a model of a building in Springfield. "I bet you're missing this, Phillip," she says, knowing that Alan is telling the truth.

Jonathan goes to Tammy's apartment to try to hide. She figures out that he stole the money from Lewis Construction, but he pleads with her and tells her that the police are the least of his worries. She agrees to let him stay, but as soon as he gets into the shower she calls her Aunt Reva. Reva is not alone - Bill, Olivia and Josh are there, discussing what to do about Jonathan and Alfred. After Reva hangs up from Tammy's conversation, she tells the others she is isn't hard for them to figure out why she is going, and they convince her to let them go with her. They go, en masse, to Tammy's and Jonathan is not happy to see them. Josh tells Tammy to go and wait for them at their house while they talk to Jonathan. Things don't even have a chance to go well with Jonathan, though, as Alfred walks into the room. Pandemonium breaks loose and Jonathan runs from the room and jumps off the balcony. He lands, unhurt, and runs out of sight of the people left in Tammy's apartment. Inside, the group wonders what to do about Alfred, who realizes he is far outnumbered. As usual, though, Alfred has thought of everything - he calls out to a police officer whom he brought along for protection. The officer walks him out of Tammy's apartment as Reva, Josh, Olivia and Bill look on in disbelief.

Having overheard Josh tell Tammy to go to his home, Jonathan knew just where to go to look for her. He grabbed Tammy from behind and yelled at her that he couldn't trust her. She yelled back this time, telling him that she called Reva because she is worried about him. He tells her to stay away from him, that he is trouble - he tells her that she should know better. She agrees that she should know better than to mess with Jonathan but they get closer and closer as they say this. Suddenly, they kiss passionately and fall to the floor.

That doesn't make Josh too happy since now he thinks that was her only reason for not sleeping with him. Reva tries to reiterate that she never betrayed him, but Josh isn't satisfied.
