After Myrtle leaves, Stuart puts the box back under a tree. He looks up and tells JR he is trying to figure out a way to ask "the main man of Christmas" how to open the box. Stuart asks out loud for a sign about how to open the box, but JR says he doesn't believe anything will happen. Stuart urges JR to believe and asks him to reveal one thing he believes in. JR says he believes in Stuart. Suddenly, the box glows again and Stuart opens it. Stuart is smiling but the contents are not revealed.

She planned to hurt Bianca but Bianca changed her. She used drugs and made out with JR to fight the changes but she ended up changing anyway. Frankie said all she ever wanted was to be happy with Bianca. Bianca told Erica that Frankie sacrificed herself for her and she turned on her. "I killed her," Bianca says.

A tearful Erica pleads with Bianca not to say she hates her. Bianca leaves the room and finds Opal, who suggests they go out and get some air.

Hayley and Mateo are in their secret room when Hayley gives Mateo a wrapped box. Inside are confidential documents about Proteus that Hayley was able to obtain. They search through the documents. Hayley says Proteus is more dangerous and lethal than they thought. Mateo says it appears that whenever Proteus is threatened, he does things without thinking. He notices all the companies Proteus has used to move his drugs and notices most of them are run by women. That makes him wonder if Proteus could be a woman. Hayley tells Mateo he could be right. An enlightened Mateo gets a revelation and leaves, telling Hayley to stay behind. Hayley wonders what he is up to.
Dixie is driving Tad's car when she realizes the brakes won't work. Instead of stopping, the car speeds up. "My God. No, no," she says. The next scene shows her car crashed into a guard rail and Dixie is fine. She gets out of the car to examine the wreckage and Edmund and Brooke arrive on the scene. She tells them she just had the car serviced and can't understand why the brakes wouldn't work. Edmund looks under the hood of the car and tells Dixie he doesn't believe this was an accident. David arrives, saying he was driving by and saw the accident. Edmund physically assaults him and accuses him of cutting the brake line. David denies it, saying it looks like the work of Leslie Coulson. Dixie says it could not have been Leslie because she is in a locked facility. David asks Dixie if she is all right, but Dixie just wants him to leave. When he leaves, Dixie says David would not do anything to hurt her. Edmund tells Brooke he has no idea who would want to hurt Dixie. Dixie tells Edmund that the line could have been broken accidently by her mechanic.
The mystery person with the black gloves is seen entering David's office with the book of sonnets. He puts the book on David's desk, takes a letter opener, cuts out a page and burns it. Later, David walks into his office and Anna is already there sitting behind the desk. David is angry that Anna was upset about him attending to Dixie. "I still care about her, so shoot me," David says angrily. Anna apologizes. David tells Anna about stumbling upon Dixie's car accident and Anna asks if Dixie was hurt. David tells her she was not. Anna says she does not care about the accident, she just cares about David. David kisses her. They begin taking clothes off and the burned page from the book is seen in the garbage can.
