Meanwhile, in 1973, Frank trails Carolyn into Kelly's and stares openly at the familiar face. Eve encounters a man chopping wood in the middle of the forest. Introducing himself as Michael, the stranger offers to help Eve find her way back to the Johnson cabin but she nervously insists she'll be fine on her own. Kevin asks Gail to look in on an agitated Rhonda. Frank approaches Carolyn with questions about her sister but she firmly informs him that Cookie is way too young to be of any interest to a man his age. Wandering aimlessly in the woods, Eve becomes lost once again. Kevin and Lucy do some snooping through the hospital records and manage to unearth a file on Carolyn Wexler.

Kevin and Lucy continue to try to find information to back up what they found in Carolyn's file. They go over to Mary's to see if she has any information about the Wexler Family and Carolyn's accident. Looking for a logical explanation, Kevin was hoping that maybe Frank remembered or possibly saw Carolyn being hit by the car and the memory has stayed with him causing his delusions of Karen. Mary told them that Frank was too small to remember her accident. After hearing that Lucy continued to insists that she is right.
She and Kevin then break into Rhonda's house to look for more answers. Lucy is amazed as she enters the basement and finds everything set to 1973. Lucy then plugs in the computer and it comes on.

Miserable in the cold cabin, Eve called Chris to see what he was up to. He was thrilled to hear from her and instantly hoped it meant she was considering saying yes to his proposal. Eve told him that she still hadn't made a decision, but they enjoyed a lighthearted conversation anyway. Chris was especially pleased when Eve said she was coming home and promised to talk to him once she got there.

Harry was furious to find Cookie and Frank alone in the basement. He accused Cookie of being responsible for Carolyn's death.

Frank tried to defend her to Harry and Cookie cried in his arms. As Harry yelled at them both, Mary came in having brought dinner for Cookie and Harry. She took Frank out of the house with her.
