Lucas becomes defensive of his feelings for Carrie and tosses Wills present from Kate into his bedroom. Lucas suggests that he fell in love with Sami because he couldnt have Carrie but Kate thinks the idea is ridiculous. Kate recalls how badly Carrie treated Austin and Lucas complains how Austin ruined everything when he showed up. Kate asks if Lucas is going to fight Austin for Carrie but Lucas claims he is too much of a gentleman for that. Lucas warns that if Kate is concerned about Austins happiness, then he isnt the one Kate should be worrying about. Kate knows Lucas is talking about Sami and vows that she must be stopped. Lucas doesnt want to hear talk like that and tells her to leave it alone. Kate complains that she cant leave it alone because Sami cant leave her sons alone. Lucas is beginning to get weirded out at how similar Kate and Sami are in their efforts to scratch and fight in order to seek revenge and protect whom they love. Kate is disgusted at the comparison. Lucas insists that if Carrie and Austin are meant to be together, then he must accept that. Kate claims that Lucas is disappointed in Carrie but Lucas claims hes disappointed in love. Kate offers to help but Lucas begs her not to help anymore. Lucas insists that hes alone now and is okay with it. Kates cell phone rings with a business call and she gets permission to step into the bedroom to take it. Eugenia stops by and tells Lucas that shes heard word that Austins company is ready to take over High Style and wipe Carrie right off the map. Lucas quickly shushes Eugenia because Kate is in the bedroom. Eugenia gloats about how Lucas is sticking it to Austin. Lucas plays dumb but Eugenia confirms that the takeover papers are signed and submitted. Lucas hates that Carrie has to get hurt in the process. Eugenia commends Lucas for orchestrating the plan so that theres no sign of Titans involvement in the takeover and while they lost High Style, Lucas is sure to score with Carrie in bed.
Kate looks furious as she comes out of the bedroom. Lucas starts to explain until he realizes that Kate is upset because he hired Eugenia as his assistant. Lucas becomes defensive of his decision to hire Eugenia because Eugenia can tell the truth unlike Kate. Kate claims she was protecting Lucas. Lucas commends Eugenias work and Eugenia claims she came over tonight to ask for a raise. Kate calls Lucas foolish and Lucas threatens to deny her access to Will. Kate backs off but accuses Eugenia of taping this conversation. Eugenia defends her decision to tape her conversations with Kate and to reveal them when Kate didnt come through with the deal. Eugenia convinces Lucas to give her the raise despite Kates abhorrence to the decision. Lucas admits to Kate that Victor was the one to hire Eugenia but is now glad that he did because Eugenia is proving to be very beneficial to him. Eugenia is amazed that Lucas was able to stand up to Kate. Lucas admits that it felt good and Eugenia is touched that someone stood up for her too. Eugenia laments that they didnt actively fight for High Style but Lucas points out that they not only have Countess Wilhelmina and Clear visage but they are also hitting Austin in the heart where it hurts. Lucas gloats that Austin wont be able to fix the damage he does when he realizes he stole Carries company.
Austin and Carrie stroll through the snowy park. Carrie admits that she didnt only come home to spend the holidays with her family and Austin asks if shes told everyone about her breakup with Mike. Carrie explains that shes breaking it to them one by one because she felt telling them in person was better than over the phone or through email. Austin agrees that email is bad for conveying really important things. Carrie admits that she was worried about seeing Austin. Austin tells Carrie that she neednt feel nervous. Carrie is ashamed about how she treated Austin and Austin admits that he was at fault as well. Carrie has grown to realize that its human nature to be attracted to people but its what you choose to do about it that makes the difference. Carrie tells Austin that she made a huge mistake in leaving him and hasnt been able to forgive herself. Austin claims he hasnt been able to forgive himself for not fighting harder for Carrie. They both admit that they regret their marriage not working out. Austin asks how long Carrie plans to stay in Salem and she mentions being based out of LA. This reminds Austin of how he thought he saw Carrie at the concert and Carrie confirms that it was she there. Carrie claims it wasnt her who called his name and Austin takes that to mean that she didnt spot him there. Carrie admits that she did see Austin and Austin wants to know why she didnt come over and say hi. Carrie turns away without answering and Austin realizes that it was because he was there with Sami. Carrie nods. Austin insists that there is nothing going on between him and Sami. Carrie laments that she and Sami dont have the typical close sister relationship. Carrie warns that things will get worse between her and Sami if things work out like she wants with Austin. Austin jokingly replies that Sami making a play for him is like a reflex. Austin tells Carrie about how he made Sami promise to behave herself before he gave her the job. Carrie changes the topic to Austins business but Austin doesnt want to share what hes working on until its announced. Austin asks about Carries work and she describes it as the head of a small company that has been her whole life recently. Austin hopes to change that and asks Carrie to spend New Years Eve with him. Carrie gladly accepts the offer.
Sami paces the floor trying to think of a way to make Austin look as bad as possible in front of Carrie. Sami rushes to quiet a whistling teapot. Sami prepares her cup of tea as she laments about having to lie to Austin. Sami insists that she has to play dumb and let the damage be done before Austin realizes what hes done to Carrie. Sami hears her own voice telling her that she is making a mistake. Sami looks around until she spots her alter ego in the mirror by the door. The alter ego warns that Sami cant be trusted to control her own life but Sami doesnt want to listen to her mirror image. The alter ego bluntly tells Sami that if she doesnt listen, she can kiss Austin goodbye. Sami isnt at all thrilled to see her alter ego back. The alter ego cautions Sami against losing her fresh start by climbing this slope of lies. Sami claims that it was Nicoles fault for not figuring out Carrie was the CEO of High Style but the alter ego calls Sami insane for thinking that by keeping quiet about what she knows will destroy both parties, it will score her points with Austin. Sami insists that she has been trying to live up to her promise to Austin about being good. The alter ego orders Sami to turn over that new leaf before she destroys everyones life. Sami doesnt think she should bother now because it never got her anything from doing so and justifies her behavior by claiming its Carries fault for leaving Austin in the first place. The alter ego insists that it doesnt matter what happened in the past because Austin and Carrie are both in love with each other. Sami complains that it isnt fair but the alter ego points out that life isnt fair. The ego adds that Sami should stop trying to take love that doesnt belong to her and tells her to go tell Austin that Carrie is the CEO. Sami refuses and yells at the ego to go away before throwing something at it and smashing the mirror. Sami cleans up the broken mirror pieces as she insists that her plan is not impossible. Samis alter ego appears in the broken pieces and insists that Sami is not only going to lose but is also going to get seven more years of bad luck for breaking the mirror. Sami yells at her ego to shut up as she dumps the broken pieces into the trashcan and covers it with a heavy book. Sami insists that she has learned and vows to get Austin this time by keeping her mouth shut about Carrie.
Austin and Carrie laugh as they step off the elevator. Austin mentions making one phone call before they plan their evening and Carrie is fine with waiting. They hug. Sami opens her door to see Austin telling Carrie that he is glad that they are reconnecting. Sami clears her throat to make her presence known and Austin asks if the information he requested has come in. Sami lies and claims it didnt. Austins cell phone rings and he steps away to take the call. Sami hugs Carrie and tells her that shed like them to be close again. Carrie agrees that she would like that too but wants Sami to be aware that she is interested in Austin. Austin, still on the phone, tells the caller that he hasnt been able to find out the CEOs name and hates going through with this takeover without knowing. Sami claims she was expecting that given what she just opened her door to but scoffs when Carrie calls her on wanting Austin too. Carrie admits to overhearing Samis conversation in the LA bathroom and Sami takes it as Carrie spying on her. Carrie insists she wasnt spying and admits to being the woman with the shoes. Sami surprises Carrie when she claims that shell step aside and let Carrie have Austin.
