Monday, November 5

Karen's energy level was too high for Frank to keep up with her as they returned from a long run as an eager Chris watched. Chris watched as Frank and Karen made love. Karen asked Frank to get married. A stunned Frank said yes. Karen heard a noise outside and saw Chris spying on them, and she ordered him to leave. Karen also told Chris that she and Frank were getting married, and she went back into the house. Chris vowed that there would be no marriage between them. Frank got a phone call from Joe.

Valerie talked with Jamal about Hope as they looked through the baby book that Valerie had made before she'd given Hope up for adoption. Valerie asked Jamal to go with her to the Hartmans' to get them to change their minds about her being able to still be part of Hope's life, but Jamal declined, saying that going there would make thing worse.

Alison and Jack talked about what Alison had done that made it impossible for Valerie to see Hope. Jack and Alison talked about the same thing outside, but Jack thought that the Hartmans were lying, and he wanted Alison to run a DNA test to find out if Jamal could possibly be Hope's father. Alison looked at Hope's baby book and took a lock of hair to run the DNA test. Jack ran into Kyle, and Kyle told Jack that he was not going to press charges against Jack. Kyle said that Livvie had played both of them for fools.

Livvie confronted Caleb with the evidence of what he'd made her do to her friends and family in Port Charles. Caleb told Livvie that she still loved him, and that was why she'd made him come back to life again. Livvie told Caleb that he didn't know what love really was. Livvie couldn't believe that she'd helped Caleb, and she vowed to tell the people of Port Charles the truth. Livvie told Caleb that he shouldn't have put her in that position. Caleb told Livvie that she still loved him, but Livvie said no, he made her sick. Caleb stopped Livvie from leaving.

Tuesday, November 6

Caleb let Livvie go, even though she swore to tell the truth. He told her to tell them and see what happened. Livvie woke up on the sofa and called for Kevin. Lucy went to the door, dressed strangely for the costume party, and asked what was wrong. Livvie told her Caleb was back, and they headed for the party. Livvie told the entire party about Caleb, but only Rafe believed her.

Livvie admitted her part in the plot, and they all turned on her for betraying them. Rafe tried to help, to no avail. Kevin thought Livvie was crazy, and she found herself strapped to a bed with everyone hating her. Rafe went to help her get out of Port Charles, but she ran straight into Jack, who told her she belonged in the room. Suddenly, Caleb was there. Livvie believed it had all been a dream but Caleb told her no, it was a glimpse into her future. Only he would always love her -- it was her choice.

Wednesday, November 7

Rafe stopped by the lighthouse to see Lucy. They discussed her relationship with Kevin. Lucy admitted she was rethinking her destiny. Maybe her future wasn't with Doc. Rafe asked if she thought her destiny was with Ian Thornhart. He told her he'd seen her kissing Ian.

Lucy was shocked. She demanded to know where Rafe's powers came from. Trying to explain, Rafe slipped and admitted he couldn't tell her. It was against the rules. Lucy persisted, but Rafe would only say she was better off not knowing. He told her she needed to be still and listen to her heart. When Lucy did so, she realized what she really wanted was Kevin.

Frank and Karen were having a wonderful time at the cabin, celebrating their engagement. Frank noticed that Karen had not slept at all in the four days they'd been there. She claimed it was because she liked to watch him sleep. They were cuddling on the couch, happy and in love, when Karen decided she would like to get a picture. While getting the camera, Karen's purse fell to the floor, dumping its contents.

Frank picked up a packet of white powder then tasted it. The powder was cocaine. Frank looked at her suspiciously, but Karen swore she was not back on drugs. She claimed Chris had planted the drugs. Frank was skeptical, so Karen confessed the whole story about how she had been accidentally injected with vampire blood.

Alison took a break while working at the Recovery Room. She made a phone call to ask when the DNA results she'd requested would be ready. When an envelope was finally delivered to her, she took it outside to read the results. Before she could open the envelope, Rafe appeared.

Mac Scorpio and Kevin got together at the Recovery Room. Kevin asked Mac if there was any news on Christina. They discussed Kevin's situation with Lucy. Mac asked where Kevin's head was "these days," with Lucy or with Eve. Kevin didn't understand how Lucy could defend Ian then blame their problems on a faceless, evil presence.

At the courthouse, Eve and Ian awaited a visit from the court-appointed counselor. They began to argue, blaming each other for losing custody of Danny. They were still arguing when the counselor entered. The counselor chastised them for their behavior. Eve began the meeting by accusing Ian of trying to take Danny out of the country. Another argument was about to ensue when Ian turned the tables and told the counselor how much he loved Eve and what a good mother she was to their son.

Eve was surprised at Ian's sudden change of attitude. When the counselor left to take a phone call, Ian told Eve she should play along. Pretending they were working things out was the only way they would get Danny back. Eve made an attempt to play nice, and for a moment, it seemed they made a connection. The counselor was unconvinced. She mentioned the vampire element.

Ian explained that Eve had been having bad dreams about vampires, while Eve claimed she was getting professional help. The counselor said she would make her recommendation to the judge. When she left, Ian begged Eve to give him just a half-hour of her time. Eve agreed, and they went to the Recovery Room.

At the restaurant, Eve and Ian were discussing their meeting with the counselor when Ian was paged. While Eve waited, Kevin walked in, carrying Danny. He placed the baby into her arms, telling her that Mac had pulled strings to have him appointed Danny's temporary guardian. An ecstatic Eve held her baby, thanking Kevin, while a stunned Ian and Lucy looked on.

Thursday, November 8

Ian and Lucy appeared to be upset over the announcement of Kevin being Daniel's guardian. Ian wanted to visit, but Kevin told him only supervised visits would be allowed. Lucy questioned Kevin's loyalty to her, asking why he would help Eve get her child back but not help her with Christina. Kevin told her that she was just seeing things and that Christina was gone. Lucy walked out, feeling that Kevin was committed to Eve and not to her.

Eve asked Kevin to take her "home" to the lighthouse. An apologetic Lucy showed up at Kevin's door, only to watch a cozy scene unfold with Eve and Kevin. Devastated by what she had seen, Lucy walked away. Eve thanked Kevin for getting Daniel back for her but told him that she worried about Ian being alone. Kevin told Eve that he had hired someone to watch Ian.

Alison confessed to Rafe that she'd had a DNA test done to prove that Hope was Jamal's daughter. Not seeing the results yet, Rafe asked Alison why. He told her to feel within herself how she was going to respond when she knew the true answer. Thinking out loud, she realized that if she didn't open the envelope, no one would be hurt. As she went to tear up the envelope with the results, Jamal showed up, asking why she'd gone to the Hartmans and asked for a DNA test. Seeing the envelope in her hand, he grabbed it away and opened it to find that he was indeed Hope's father.

Livvie told Caleb that she had decided that he was the one for her. As she professed her undying love for him and contempt for the others, Caleb looked at her and told her that he did not believe one word of what she was saying. Livvie tried to convince him that she was telling the truth and that she was willing to do anything that he asked. Caleb informed her that she had to perform the task that he'd requested of her before. She needed to kill Jack.

Lucy returned home and found Ian at her doorstep. She invited him in for a talk. He handed her a large box, which happened to be filled with the invitations to her and Kevin's Christmas wedding. Upset that her world was falling apart, she turned to Ian, who gave her a hug. Not sure of themselves, Ian backed away only to hear Lucy tell him that he didn't have to leave. At that, he stepped closer, and they kissed.

Caleb told Livvie to kill Jack by poisoning him. He gave her the poison. He said that for her sake, she'd better not be faking. She promised that she wasn't. She called Jack and set up a meeting at the Recovery Room.

Jamal asked Alison how long she had planned to keep the paternity news from him. Rafe chimed in to say that Alison had just gotten the envelope, but Jamal told him to stay out of it. He said that for her to have had the test run, she would have had to have suspicions. She admitted that she had wondered for weeks if he was Hope's father. He told her that she'd had no right to go behind his back.

Alison apologized to Jamal. He said that he'd thought the secrets were over. She told him they were, but he said that he needed some time. After Jamal left, Alison told Rafe that she didn't blame Jamal; she'd really screwed up that time. She went back to work.

Livvie met with Jack. She distracted him and put the poison in his drink. Rafe saw it and caused Alison to knock the drink out of Jack's hand. As Alison left to find Jamal, and Livvie went to Caleb, Jack and Rafe cleaned up the mess. Jack noticed that the drink was eating through the napkins like acid. Livvie returned to Caleb and said that she'd put the poison in Jack's drink, but Alison had knocked the drink out of his hand. Caleb told her that she had not done what he'd sent her to do.

On his way back to the bike shop, Jamal ran into Valerie. He told her to tell him the truth about why she'd returned to Port Charles. She told him again about her anonymous note, but he didn't buy it. After they talked, she admitted that she was in love with him. As he was about to tell Valerie that he was Hope's father, Alison walked in and interrupted. Jamal asked Valerie to give him and Alison a moment. When Valerie left, Alison asked Jamal not to tell Valerie about Hope.

Mac stopped by the lighthouse and asked how Lucy felt about the Eve/Daniel arrangement. Kevin said that Lucy knew that he loved her, and she'd "come around." At the same time, Kevin's hired P.I. took photos of Lucy and Ian making love.
