She notices the door open and goes it. There are no lights so she lights some candles and looks toward the bed and is surprised.

Sara is out of the patio and Casey joins her. She told him that she has a gift for him. He jokes asking if she knitted him a sweater, she says no, she made him dinner. She says that she made her family specialty, Shepherd's Pie. She went to get it when Casey grabs her and kisses her, she says to save that for dessert, but they don't stop kissing. Next scene they are at the table and her Shepherd's Pie is more like Shepherd's Soup. Casey says that he will just skip dinner and go to dessert.

Maria went to Carmen's house first and told her that Gabi is back in Sunset Beach, Carmen gets upset. Maria told her that she will be the reason that their family breaks up, not Gabi, she will be the reason because if she went to Ricardo with what she knows the he will confront Antonio who they know will not lie about it, and then they will not be brothers, they will hate each other all because of Carmen. Maria continues to beg Carmen to let sleeping dogs lay. She told her that it would be a tragedy to tell them, she says that it will be OK when Gabi leaves again. Maria yells at her mom saying it is not about Gabi it is about her destroying her sons relationship and then says that after she does what she thinks she needs to Maria says that she hopes she can live with what she has done, and leaves.

She shoos the lady out promising to tell her all and call her tomorrow. She then apologizes to Antonio saying that she has a back up, and says that she will be ready if she ever shows up in the town again. She went to put the video again, but stops to check to make sure the tape came out OK. All she sees is fuzz. She checks all the connections and sees that a wire is loose so she fixes it and the picture comes back.
