Keith has gone to visit Luke at his home, and he convinces Luke to be truthful with him so he can help Lily. At first Luke is unsure, but Keith convinces him that he just wants the real killer to pay for Julias murder, and if it is not Luke or Lily then he wants to help them both. Keith finally gains Lukes trust, and Luke admits to him that Julia was alive when Lily left but dead by the time he got to her. He assures Keith that he was not the one who killed Julia, and his mom is so adamantly professing her guilt to cover for Luke that she must think he killed Julia.

At the gym, two high school boys start to harass Celia. Casey tries to come to her rescue but to no avail. Then Will gets involved and diffuses the situation quickly by alluding to the fact that Celia has the same boxing background as her brother, Rafael, who put Aaron in the hospital. He also reminds them that Katie and Henry are watching them, and if they call the police, Wills dad is Chief of Police and Caseys mom is a detective. The boys decide to leave, and Celia thanks Will and Casey for being her heroes. Allison tells Will that she is proud of how maturely and calmly he handled the situation, which affects Will.
Jen wants to know why Dusty thinks it is a good idea to stay quiet. Dusty thinks that it will only make things worse for her if Mike is forced to always remember what happened with her and Craig by being constantly reminded by a baby. Jen is not even convinced Mike wouldnt question outright whom the baby belongs to. She is especially concerned about doing this to Mike because he has already gone through it with Carly and it practically destroyed him. Dusty tells her that because Mike loves her he may wonder, but because of that love he would also believe in her. So Dusty tells her to go home and make love to Mike, and then in a month she should tell Mike she is pregnant. Jens conscience is really torturing her because her heart is telling her to be honest with Mike, but she is terrified that it would spell the end of her and Mikes relationship.
Luke and Keith show up to talk to Lily. At fist Lily wants Keith to stay away from Luke, but they soon get her to realize that Keith only wants the truth, and he is there to help. Luke finally gets Lily to understand that he did not kill Julia, and for that reason she should stop trying to convince everyone of her guilt. Lily finally understands that Luke is in fact innocent, and she realizes the mess she has created; by now she has worked so hard with so many people to get them to believe in her guilt that she is afraid if she recants no one will believe her. Keith tells her he will talk to Tom, but she is sure no one will believe her flip-flop. Keith thinks the fact that he is the victims brother will affect people if stands beside her. They agree that there are a lot of lies to unravel, but they have to start somewhere. If they figure out who may have really killed Julia, then they would have ground to stand on. Keith tells Lily Julia had a shady past, and he will tell Lily about that if she fills him in on her actions before he got to Oakdale. They have to trust each other in order to solve this.
Jen comes home to find Mike setting up a romantic evening for them with all of Jens favorite Chinese take-out dinner selections. Immediately Jen is wracked with guilt, but she also experiences a wave of nausea and covers by saying all the stress is getting to her. They decide to skip dinner, but Mike hands her his blueprint plans for her studio on the back of the cottage. Jen is so appreciative of Mike that they start to kiss, but Jen stops them by claiming she is overwhelmed and still feeling so badly about Craig. Mike wants them to have a pact to never talk or think about Craig again. He wants them to agree that there will be no more hiding things or lying because they have to have a new beginning. Jen continues to wrestle with her love for Mike and fear of losing him if she tells him the truth.
Sierra meets with Dusty to discuss Craig. He tells Sierra that what he saw in Craig at the trunk show really made him realize how evil Craig is, because it wasnt just business that was making Craig steal the designs and undermine Street Jeans sales; he was out to personally destroy Jen. Sierra tells him that she will no longer fall for any of Craigs lies and that she will never trust him again. Dusty believes they need to go on the offensive to stop him. Sierra is worried that he means he is going to hurt Craig, but what Dusty wants is complete control of Street Jeans. He assures her he wont harm him, only neutralize him slowly yet effectively. Sierra gives him the okay to do whatever he needs to do.
