At Al’s Diner, FBI Agent Brackett who has been following Molly, meets up with her again. Agent Brackett harshly grabs Molly by her arm and leads her to a booth. Agent Brackett strongly suggests to Molly that she seduce Dusty Donovan to gather needed information and make arrests. Offended by this request and his threat, Molly declines and tells him off. After Agent Brackett apologizes for threatening and insulting Molly, he leaves. Molly then phones the FBI to check his legitimacy. Apparently Agent Brackett has been working the Oakdale area for the past five years. Kim arrives. Molly tells Kim that Dusty Donovan is involved in a crime organization and that Agent Brackett threatened and asked her to prostitute herself to Dusty, which is illegal, in order to obtain information for the FBI. With a smile on her face, Molly says that being the journalist she is, she will call Agent Brackett and agree to do this. Molly says telling the world about Dusty Donovan and Agent Brackett will make a wonderful story, especially since she is sick and tired of everyone telling her how to run her life. Kim gives Molly the okay, as long as she (Kim) provides Molly with protection. Kim agrees to provide Molly with special recording equipment. Molly tells Kim that after her story airs, Agent Brackett and Dusty will not know what hit them.

Paul walks in on Rose and Dusty locked in a passionate kiss. Rose begs Dusty to go. Dusty leaves. Paul asks Rose how she can choose Dusty over him. Now crying, Rose says she cannot explain her feelings. Paul tells Rose she is dumb for falling for a trashy con man (Dusty) that was hired by his mother (Barbara). Paul asks Rose if she loves him. Rose says she thought she loved him more than anything in the world, but since she returned from Italy, she has changed. Paul tells Rose that Dusty will break her heart and he (Paul) will not help her. Paul walks out the door and over to the police station. Paul tells Jack that he caught Rose kissing Dusty, so he asks Jack for proof that Dusty lied to Rose. Jack hands Paul a file containing Dusty’s bank account statements and bills showing Barbara’s payment for Dusty‘s hotel bills. Paul curses him mother and Dusty. Paul leaves and tells Jack he is taking his mother and Dusty down...and taking Rose back.

After being caught by Paul for smooching with Dusty, Rose manages to arrive at her grand opening party. Lisa, Lucinda, Emily, Hal, Holden and Lily greet Rose. Lucinda asks Rose where Paul is. Rose says Paul may not be coming. Rose goes to chat with Lily in private. Rose says that she and Paul are over. Lily hugs Rose. Dusty arrives. Alone with Dusty, Rose tells him that she and Paul are finished. Rose asks Dusty to hold her. After a few minutes have passed, Rose and Dusty head back to the party. As Rose toasts to Dusty, Barbara walks in and congratulates Rose; saying that she (Rose) and Dusty have apparently done a bang up job. Rose and Barbara exchange insults. Lucinda tells Barbara that if she does not leave, they will gang up on her and turn her hair blonde. Paul walks in and tells Rose that she and him have been set up. Holding documents showing Barbara‘s payment for Dusty‘s expenses for the last few months, Paul tells Rose that Dusty was paid by his mother (Barbara) to break them up. Paul orders Dusty to tell Rose the truth.
