At Fairwinds, Will tells Paul that since he told Barbara to give it up and go to prison he's doing well. Will tells Paul that if Barbara signs the plea agreement she'll be sent to prison for two years. Paul points out that if Barbara doesn't sign it they'll be in for a long legal battle. Will tells him that it doesn't matter, because he's never seeing him again.
At the police station, Rosanna grabs the pen out of Barbara's hand, telling her not to sign the plea agreement. She tells Barbara that she's there to make sure Barbara doesn't go to prison.
At Metro, Rafael walks into the bar area while Aaron and Allison are kissing. Aaron sends Rafael and Allison to the stock room when Holden arrives. Holden tells Aaron that Luke cut classes and he's not answering his phone, but Aaron tells him he hasn't seen Luke. Aaron is about to fill Holden in on his new job at Metro when Julia calls, asking Holden if he's found Luke. Holden offers to come help her unpack, but Julia tells him not to. Holden tells her that he gets it: he's turning out to be more trouble than she thought because of Luke and Lily. As Julia looks at a picture of herself, Keith and J.J. she tells him it's not that, and she wants him in her life because he's worth it.
Lily and Carly sit in a car outside looking through binoculars at Julia's new apartment, waiting for Keith to arrive. Lily gets out of the car to go peek into Julia's place to see if Keith is already there. She drops her keys, and suddenly Keith is there. He asks her if she needs help.
Allison comes out of the storage room at Metro and asks Aaron how it went with Holden. He tells her that he hasn't told him yet and sends her back so he can speak with Holden alone. Holden finishes his call with Julia and asks her if she's got another guy stashed over there. She tells him that she's met a great guy who is good to her and J.J. Holden promises that the three of them will spend a lot of time together.
Outside Julia's place, Keith asks Lily if he just saw her at the coffee shop, and she acts surprised, saying yes, she did see him there. She tells him she's waiting for her friend Anne, and he heads into the building. Back inside the car, Lily tells Carly she's worried that Keith might tell Julia she was there, but Carly brushes it off, and they continue to watch the building. Lily hopes that Julia will leave town with Keith.
Just as Julia puts the picture of Keith, J.J. and herself away there's a knock at the door, and it's Keith. She opens the door and says she is surprised he found her. He says she knew he would and he asks where J.J. is. Julia tells him J.J. is with a friend. He sees all the boxes and asks her if she's coming or going, and she tells him it depends on him. Keith asks what that's supposed to mean, and Julia tells him it depends on whether he still hates her for what she did.
At the police station, Barbara can't believe that Rosanna is trying to save her. Rosanna tells her that she's calling a lawyer and telling him that Barbara hasn't signed the plea agreement. Rosanna tries to tell her that she's helping her because she's Paul's mother, but Barbara doesn't buy it because she knows Rosanna hates her. Rosanna tells her to trust her and take the gift. Barbara tells her she'll never trust her.
At Metro, Holden asks Aaron what he wanted to talk to him about. Rafael comes up behind him. Aaron gives Rafael another job to do and Holden immediately questions why Rafael is working there. Aaron tells Holden that Dusty didn't hire Rafael, he did, and then he tells Holden that he's now managing Metro. Allison offers Rafael help behind the bar and Rafael tells her that if Holden wasn't happy to see him working there, wait until he finds out that Aaron is sponsoring him for his green card. Allison tells Rafael that she's sure Aaron will not change his mind, no matter what Holden says. Rafael stresses that if he loses his job at Metro he doesn't know what he'll do, because he can't go back to Montega. Allison presses him as to why he can't go back, and Rafael tells her it's because he's ashamed. Holden tells Aaron that he's not completely happy about him working at Metro, but Aaron's not a kid and he's sure he can handle managing Metro. Holden tells Aaron how worried he is about Luke and that Luke isn't handling his and Lily's separation very well. Holden leaves to continue looking for Luke.
Aaron calls and leaves a message for Luke, telling him to come to Metro because he wants to see him right away.
At Fairwinds, Paul tells Will that he's going to the police station to make sure Barbara signs the plea agreement papers, because there's no way he's going to allow her to drag them through a long trial. Will tells him he's going along; Barbara won't listen to Paul, but she will listen to Will, because she thinks she still has a chance with him.
At the police station, Barbara insists to Rosanna that she's signing the papers to prove to Will that she loves him. She tells Rosanna that if she doesn't sign them she'll lose him forever. Just as she's ready to sign, Rosanna's phone rings. She hands the phone to Barbara and it's James, who asks her why she can't do anything the easy way.

Rosanna tells Barbara that Cabot is alive and she has to let her help so they can both have what they want. Barbara tells her that James could betray them both.

Keith describes the messenger as a woman with red hair, and Julia replies that she bets she had blonde roots.
Jack continues to try to talk to J.J. and Parker. He tells them that they need to give each other another chance.

J.J. storms out the door and Holden, on his way inside, grabs him. J.J. tells Holden that he hates Parker. Jack tells Parker that he won't tolerate the two of them trying to hurt each other. Holden tells J.J. to show Jack that he can be fair, just like Jack is trying to be fair.
