Carrie and Lucas are sitting at their table. Carrie is hunched down telling Lucas about how she hid in the bathroom stall so as not to be seen by Sami. Lucas and Carrie try to escape unseen via the dance floor. Carrie and Lucas make it to the door unspotted. Lucas steps outside to get the valet. Lucas talks in a fake accent as he walks with Carrie to the car. Carrie and Lucas talk of how her relationship with Austin didnt work out but decides not to blame Sami since she is the one who fell for Mike. Carrie brings up how Sami was boasting in the ladies room about wanting both Austin and Lucas. Lucas quotes the shame on me proverb and Carrie apologizes for bringing it up. Lucas insists that hes moving on without Sami. Carrie notes how Lucas sounds like hes already found someone else. Lucas says that he hopes he has. Lucas and Carrie stop off for coffee and sit on a bench in a park. Lucas tells Carrie how hes ready to settle down. Carrie admits to Lucas that she hasnt dated anyone since Mike because she still has feelings for Austin. Carrie explains that she had hopes for her and Austin when she thought Sami was going to marry Lucas but now after hearing Samis bathroom speech, her hopes are once again dashed. Lucas asks if Carrie can move on with someone else if Sami ends up with Austin. Carrie claims that she wouldnt come between Sami and Austin. Carrie is skeptical though that Austin would go back to Sami after all shes done to him. Lucas warns that stranger things have happened. Carrie wants to find out how Austin feels about her before she drives herself crazy fantasizing. Lucas points out how they just spent the evening dodging Austin. Lucas suggests taking Carrie home now but Carrie suddenly remembers that she left a confidential High Style file on the table. Lucas offers to go back and get it but Carrie insists on doing it because its her five-year bonus plan. Lucas urges Carrie to hurry back to get it because Sami is like a magnet when it comes to confidential information.
Sami is furious that Lucas is in LA with another woman but Austin points out that Lucas is free to date whomever he pleases since hes not with Sami anymore. Austin and Sami decide to head out onto the dance floor. Sami spots the woman from the bathroom, whose back is to Sami and Austin, and recognizes her shoes. Austin ignores Samis attempts to stop him and heads over to ask about the shoes for Sami. Austin is surprised when he recognizes the woman. The woman turns out to be someone Austin knows as Rori Finch. They catch up and Rori explains that the Christmas party currently going on is a charity event to raise money to get Christmas presents for hurricane victims. Sami joins them to ask about the shoes and Austin introduces them. Rori tells Sami that she doesnt remember where she got the shoes. Rori congratulates Austin on his new company and finds out that Austin is now based out of Salem. Rori starts to flirt with Austin about a past event they attended but Sami interrupts to ask about earlier in the ladies room. Rori claims that she hasnt been in the ladies room all night. Sami wants to get Austin away with an excuse of business but Austin tells Rori that the business is done and leads Rori to the bar for a drink. Sami disgusted by Rori and Austins flirting, spans the crowd and calls Austins attention toward the door. Sami directs Austins attention to a sign stating that a pair of tickets to the Rolling Stones concert is going to be raffled off. Rori explains that the raffle is part of her charity event and Austin offers to not only buy a slew of tickets but also wants to write out a check for the hurricane victims. Samis eyes go wide as she watches Rori thank Austin with a deep kiss. Sami spots Carries folder on the table but before she can do anything, Austin pulls her away from the table. Carrie slips in and grabs the folder before rushing back toward the door. Austin leads Sami to stand under the mistletoe and kisses her. Carrie spots them kissing from across the room. Carrie considers the sight as her being wrong about Austin falling for Sami and leaves the restaurant. Everyone applauds and Sami looks around confused. Rori comes over to them to announce that they are the Christmas Kiss for Katrina contest winners. Austin is thrilled and high fives Sami but Sami has no idea what is going on. Sami is disappointed that the kiss was only for charity but pretends to only care about the charity. Rori pulls Austin aside to make out the check for his donation. Sami is convinced that Austin kissed her because he loves her.
Carrie rejoins Lucas in the park but is now crying. Lucas thinks Carrie is upset because Sami was insulting to her but Carrie explains that she spotted Sami and Austin kissing. Lucas pulls Carrie close to comfort her. Carrie thanks Lucas for being her good friend and Lucas promises to always be there for her.

Belle asks Shawn to promise to take things slow and Belle is glad to hear Shawn say that hell always care about her. Belle is having doubts that Claire will make it so Shawn tries to assure her. Lexie comes back and tells them that Claire is still hemorrhaging and needs more blood. Shawn asks about the blood bank but Lexie laments that supplies are low. Belle asks for the truth about what will happen to Claire if she cant get more blood. Lexie admits that Claire will then die.

Lexie assures Belle that they are still using the pint Shawn gave yesterday. Lexie adds that the blood bank is putting out calls to all potential donors. Lexie urges Belle to stay strong.

Belle begins to get upset at the thought of Claire dying and Shawn vows to do whatever it takes to save Claire.
Shawn overhears Lexie tell a nurse that the blood bank isnt having any luck with finding donors. Belle and Shawn both offer again to donate blood but Lexie refuses their offers again. Belle asks how Lexie would be feeling if it was Theo in there and Lexie assures Belle that they have calls out to hospitals within a 50 mile radius and their main concern is stopping the hemorrhaging or there will be no need for more blood. Lexie suggests that Belle and Shawn say some prayers and promises to keep them up to date before leaving. Shawn assures Belle that he will take care of getting the blood and sends her off to the chapel. Shawn heads over to the blood bank and lies about having donated blood yesterday in order to be able to donate more. Belle returns from the chapel just as Lexie comes out of Claires room in a frantic mood. Belle senses that something has changed and Lexie warns that its not a change for the better. Lexie looks at Belle in surprise when Belle instinctively demands to need Shawn by her side. Shawn lies and tells the blood bank nurse that Lexie said it was okay to take an extra pint of blood.
