At the gym, Louie explains to Henry and Katie that, like it says in her employment agreement, if she makes money she can keep a percentage, but any improvements that she makes to the place come out of her pocket. Louie excuses himself to get the rest of the crime tape from the murder out of the locker room. Katie asks Henry what she was thinking by taking the manager's job at the gym. Henry looks sick every time Katie reminds him that everything they're doing is being done so she can get Mike back.

Emily continues to pack up the dishes in her kitchen while Barbara barks in the background that Emily is the one who wanted to send Will back to the hospital. Barbara concocts a whole story about how Emily feigned an illness and had Barbara doing all the work around the house so she could be up all night causing problems at Fairwinds and terrorizing Rosanna. Paul tells Barbara the proof is that her mistake was being nice, decent, and kind to Emily, or anyone for that matter, and no one in the world would believe that. Barbara tells Emily to stay away from Will or she'll spend the rest of her life behind bars. Hal comes home and Barbara blurts out that Paul and Emily think she drugged Emily. Paul asks Hal to have the dishes analyzed. Hal asks Barbara and Paul to leave so he can talk to Emily alone. Hal insists that Barbara not go to her room, that she get out of the house. Alone, Hal tells Emily that he missed her. Emily begs Hal to believe that she would never do anything to hurt Rosanna or Will and asks him to run the tests. Hal tells her he'd do anything for her and leaves to get started on them right away. She asks Hal if he's doing this as a favor, and Hal asks why that matters. Emily tells him she needs him to believe in her and questions if he believes her at all.
Mike tries to pin Jen down to her yes answer. Jennifer questions if his asking her to move in with him has anything to do with Katie, and he tells her that she's the one he wants.

She tells him in that case to make her a key, because she's home.
At the gym, Katie asks Henry when he and Mike are renting their tuxes. Henry reminds her that he needs money to do that.

Katie imagines Mike stepping in at her and Henry's wedding and not allowing her to actually marry Henry. Henry asks her if she's thought that Mike really might not care, but of course Katie doesn't see it that way. Katie tells him that she can't let it go, she loves Mike too much to just let it go.
Lucy arrives back at the Walsh mansion where Rafael greets her and tells her that if she doesn't want to talk he won't follow her.

Lucinda asks Dusty why he's punishing Lucy for being honest with him. Lucinda tells him that Lucy does have emotions for Rafael, but it's him that she longs for. She tells Dusty that she thinks he and Lucy could have a future together if he could forgive himself for putting Lucy in the position with Rafael in the first place. She tells him it's his choice, but he should try to be the man that Lucy wants and deserves.
Lucy apologizes to Rafael for falling apart on him. Rafael tells her that he said some things to Dusty that let him know something happened between them.

Sierra delivers papers to Lucinda outside Al's restaurant. Sierra asks where Lucy is, and Lucinda explains that she went away crying after talking to Dusty.

Lucy tells Rafael that she's confused about Dusty. She tells him that even though Dusty doesn't want her, it doesn't change the way she feels about him.

He tells her that deep down inside she wants to give them a chance, too, and Lucy tells him that maybe she does.
