She complains about being almost arrested. He told her he'll take care of her. She asks him if there is a chance of her involvement being known - if there is a paper trail. He told her that no one could crack his files. She wants to see them and he refuses. Kevin walks in.. Lucy claims that the man is Henri - a new designer for the Nurses Ball. "Henri" flounces out. Kevin told her he doesn't like Henri's taste in costumes. But since she has it on... She asks if he has a sword - he says he'll see what he can do.

Later, Lucy arrives at a customer's seedy apartment building. She flashes back to the PI telling her about the rumors that Eve was a paid escort She told herself she's doing it for Scott and Serena. Calling herself Xanadu, she went in to meet a guy wearing underwear and a stuffed lion around his neck. He's supposed to be Hercules. He wants them to lay on his bear skin rug (the bed). But Lucy wants to hear his exploits with women of yore. He wants to know how yore, and she told him 3-5 years ago, perhaps brunette. He does remember one who was very young, buxom, full lips, big eyes, but he doesn't remember her name. Then he remembers - Evelyn Honeysuckle.

A reporter calls about Jules being poisoned in the book and told Kevin about Julie's poisoning.

Joe and Frank try to resuscitate poisoned Julie. Frank starts in with his paramedic kit. Something they give her brought her around. Since the substance worked - it means she had a drug overdose.

They put her on an opiate reversal drug and along with Jake and Mary - they realize someone tried to kill her. Jake told Chris and Karen that Julie had an opiate overdose. Karen says "No way!"

"Jules Melvin" came to town posing as "Jules Norris", Jake's character gets to find out how it feels to be a lab rat at the end of the day, Tris Rambo gets cut down to size and bleeds to death, and Carol Waxler, the ex-stripper is treated to a hangman's noose. They realize that the killer seems to be going in random order. They discuss Lark's going missing.

Meanwhile, back at the Scanlon's, the cops are searching the place while Eve paces. Scott arrives and Eve fills him in on everything. This convinces Eve that Julie is innocent. Frank arrives and Garcia comes upstairs and starts questioning him about what she ate and drank during the day. Frank and Alex argue. Scott tries to calm Frank down and he stomps back to the hospital. Scott then starts in on Garcia about the murders following General Homicide.

Lucy calls 911 after her "date" has had a heart attack. As the Paramedics arrive, still dressed in her Xanadu outfit, Lucy hides outside on the ledge of the building barely escaping again!

Julie is recovering from her near death experience from the poisoning, while at the same time Garcia is placing an armed guard at her door. He tells the guard that he wants to know everyone who comes in or out. Scotty is happy (for a moment) to see that Garcia has come around and realizes that Julie is in danger, but Garcia explains its to protect everyone else from Julie. Scott is outraged.

Frank meets up with a strange looking yet professionally dressed man in one of the small rooms General Hospital seems to have so many of. He starts speaking with him about copying the formula for the drug. He explains that he has copied it to perfection.

Lucy went to General Hospital and meets up with Audrey at the Nurses Desk. She explains that she is there to make arrangements for the Nurses Ball. Audrey asks her about the clothing she intends to wear this year and is she is planning to strip or swing from the ceiling. (Remember last year?).. but Lucy assures her that she will be completely and elegantly clad. After Audrey leaves, Lucy enlists in conversation with one of the nurses standing at the desk. She asks about a heart attack victim that was brought in earlier that evening, and the nurse told her that some guy was brought in wearing a Hercules outfit from a seedy hotel where a woman called 911. Lucy says he's a friend and asks for his room number. She went to visit him but he does not recognize her. She told him who she is, and he wants to continue the role playing. Lucy, scheming as we know her, then has Eve paged to Hercules' room so that he can get a good look at her.

Meanwhile, Kevin is at the hospital and runs into Audrey. Kevin mentions that Lucy is meeting with her designer "Henri" and Audrey explains that she just saw Lucy. Kevin is greatly suspicious of what Lucy's up to and decides to have her paged. As he is standing up at the Nurses desk (The same nurse that Lucy inquired about Hercules), he overhears the paramedics talking about bringing in Hercules. Kevin mind is spinning and then he realizes that Lucy is involved. Lucy doesn't answer her page, so the nurse asks if she should page her again, and Kevin says no. The he inquires about "Hercules" and the nurse snickers a bit, and told him the room number.

Back in "Hercules'" room, Eve responds to her page and walks in the room. Lucy is standing behind the door. Eve demands to know why she was paged, and Lucy told her that the patience knows her from somewhere. But neither recognize the other. Hercules is excited that they know each other and states that he would pay big money if they were a "team". Lucy rushes Eve out the door and makes up and excuse that she was just trying to help him out because he thought he knew Eve. Lucy rushes off just as Kevin comes around the corner. He speaks to Eve briefly letting her know that he saw Lucy and then went into the room with Hercules.

Garcia, after testing several of Julie's things for possible poisoning, determines that the poison was in the water bottle. Julie almost becomes hysterical stating that it was in the dishdrainer all day, but Lark is the one who did the dishes. She accuses Lark of trying to kill her. Frank just sits by and lets the accusations fly.

At the coffeehouse, Devon spilled his drink. Kay approached him and asked if he needed a hand. Devon said he was just clumsy. Kay offered to help Devon if he ever needed a hand.
