Jack strokes Carly’s cheek and tells her that he can’t stop thinking about her and Carly tells Jack she has the same problem she can’t stop thinking about him.

Jack agrees with Carly and then Parker arrives and apologizes to his parents for interrupting whatever it was they wore doing or discussing.

(Lilly’s house) Holden arrives to pick Ethan up to take him to a birthday party and Lily tells him that Lucinda hired a private detective to help find out what happened to Damian.

(Carly’s house) Parker tells Carly and Jack that they can continue with whatever they were doing or discussing he just wanted to let Carly know he won’t be home for dinner because he is going to see Liberty after he is through with his physical therapy and then he will stop by Al’s diner to get something to eat. Carly tells Jack that Parker knows what is going on between them which gives them one more reason to stop this now before they do something they will both regret. Jack wonders if Carly will be having dinner alone tonight and when Carly tells him yes he wonders if she wants to have dinner with him. Carly tells Jack that is a bad idea because he knows they couldn’t just have dinner together.

Holden tells Molly that the first mate on Damian’s ship saw a bloody body on the deck but when he went to get a closer look the body was gone. Holden thinks the most logical conclusion is that Damian’s body washed out to sea. Holden wants to turn himself in to the police but Molly tells him he doesn’t have to do that because there is no proof that he was responsible for what happened to Damian. Molly also reminds Holden there is no body so he would just drag his family through a painful trial and he could risk being put in jail.

Carly and Jack make it clear to Parker that they understand his feelings but he can stop living his life just because Liberty is sick. Parker tells them that Liberty told him the same thing but he is wiling to make any sacrifice to help Liberty through this crisis. Carly and Jack tell Parker they won’t let him do it and they make him promise that he will do his schoolwork and go to therapy. Parker wonders how they are allowed to sacrifice their happiness because he knows they want to be together but they are holding back because of Liberty’s illness. Jack explains that adults often have to make sacrifices because it is the right thing to do and Parker tells them that just because he is a teenager it doesn’t mean that he isn’t allowed to make sacrifices for the things that are most important to him like Liberty. Parker storms upstairs and Jack tells Carly that their son is way too smart for his own good. Jack tells Carly that she was right they can’t keep seeing each other it is just too hard so they both agree if they have something to talk about they will do it by phone or e-mail because it will be easier for both off them.

Ethan goes to his room to play and Lily tells Holden that she hated lying to Ethan but Holden says it wasn’t a lie because Damian is gone and he won’t be coming back to Oakdale. Lily wants Holden to tell her what happened to Damian and he tells her that he wishes that she could trust him when he says that Damian isn’t coming back to Oakdale and let this go.
