At Paul’s place, Paul offers to marry Emily because she is worried that Tom will take custody of Daniel away from her. Emily refuses Paul’s offer of marriage because she can tell he is only trying to do her a favor.

At Carly and Jack’s place, Carly runs around the house making sure everything is perfect for her lunch with Gwen. Jack arrives with the soft drinks and Carly is annoyed at him because he didn’t buy any root beer. Jack points out to Carly that nobody in the house likes root beer. Carly tells Jack that Gwen might like to drink some root beer. Jack goes over to Carly, gives her a hug and tells her to relax, because everything will be fine with the lunch. Jack smiles and says that it is impossible that things won’t go well, because she has every kind of bread and sandwich topping imaginable.

At Gwen’s house, Gwen is also nervous about the lunch with Carly and considers calling to cancel it. Will tells Gwen to relax because it’s just a lunch, and all she has to do is smile and eat. Iris arrives and Gwen tells her they are going to lunch. Iris asks Gwen to get her a grilled cheese sandwich. Gwen explains that they aren’t going to a restaurant, they are going to have lunch at Carly’s house. Iris tells Gwen not to trust Carly because she is only trying to use her so she can drop the charges against her. Gwen tells Iris she doesn’t want to listen to her anymore. Gwen tells Iris she is going to have lunch with Carly and she can’t say anything to stop her. Gwen, Will and the baby leave to go to Carly’s house. Iris tells herself she warned Gwen, but she didn’t listen to her. Iris takes a glass of juice, puts poison in it and drinks it.

At Lily’s house, Holden is puzzled by Lily’s change of heart about getting back together with him. Holden tells Lily he knows she loves him; no matter what she says, he knows that in his heart. Holden asks Lily if she wants him to leave her alone. Keith interjects before Lily can say a word and tells Holden he must leave Lily alone, because she is with him now, and he should accept that fact. Holden yells at Keith that he won’t ever accept that Lily is with him. Lily explains to Holden that she always had feelings for Keith, and she has forgiven him because she knows he would never harm Lucinda or Luke. Holden tells Lily that he can’t believe that she is falling in love with Keith. Lily doesn’t say a word, and Keith once again jumps in and tells Holden that she does love him, and they are getting married.

At the hospital, Lucinda stops by to visit Luke after her own doctor visit. Luke wonders what the doctor told her, and Lucinda jokes that the doctor said she is too stubborn to die. Lucinda then tells Luke she will be just fine. Lucinda also tells Luke she is going to throw him a big welcome-home party once he is released from the hospital. Luke tells Lucinda he wants a special present from his favorite grandmother. Lucinda tells Luke she will tell Emma to cook him something special. Luke smiles and tells Lucinda that he would like a red sports car. Lucinda says that she will see what she can do, but she has to ask Holden and Lily for permission to buy him a car. Luke tells Lucinda he really doesn’t want a car, or a party, because his parents getting back together is the best present he could ever receive. Luke reminds Lucinda she must keep the promise she made to him. Lucinda tells Luke she must go make sure one of his wishes comes true.

At Jack and Carly’s place, Carly tells Jack that she hopes Gwen will realize the importance of having a family. Carly wonders if she and Gwen will have anything in common with each other. Carly also tells Jack that Gwen won’t be a replacement for Rosanna because Gwen and Rosanna have very different personalities. Jack points out to Carly that even though Gwen is different from Rosanna, Gwen is also her sister, and he believes they will grow to love each other. The doorbell rings and Parker rushes to answer it, shouting, "Rory is here!" Carly reminds Parker not to call the baby Rory, because his name is Billy. Parker opens the door and is happy to see the baby but isn’t so happy to see Gwen. Parker asks Carly what Gwen is doing there, since she hates her. Carly tells Parker to be quiet and gives him a stern look. Gwen tells Carly it is okay, because Parker is right—she does hate her. Gwen starts to leave, but Carly asks her to stay. Carly sends Parker to get J.J. and Sage so that she and Jack can apologize to Gwen. Jack explains to Gwen that the last time Parker saw Gwen she was taking the baby away, so that is why he was so rude to her. Gwen decides to stay and ignore Parker’s comments about her.

Paul tells Emily that now he knows that love is two people who make each other happy and protect each other.

At Gwen’s place, Iris asks Stan if he ordered the same poison Will used to poison Rose. Stan is offended by the question because he can read, and it is the same poison.

At Lily’s house, Lily asks Keith to allow her to speak to Holden alone. Keith goes outside so Holden and Lily can be alone to talk. Lily does her best to persuade Holden that she always had feelings for Keith and the only reason they (she and Holden) got close again was because they were worried about Lucinda and Luke. Holden doesn’t believe Lily because he knows she loves him. Lily reminds Holden that they split up because their marriage had problems, and she doesn’t think those problems can be solved. Holden demands Lily tell him the real reason she is marrying Keith.

Lucinda arrives and isn’t happy to see Keith standing outside Lily’s house, looking in the window.
