The mysterious woman with the antidote is an old flame of Roberts named Holly. She tells Robert that she could dump enough of the virus into the river in order to contaminate the entire city. He tells her he cannot believe that she would actually do that. Could she actually want to profit from this epidemic and kill a lot of innocent people? She asks him if he really wants to take a chance with that.
In Sams hospital room, she goes into cardiac arrest. Monica and Emily attempt to revive her with Sonny watching silently. They stabilize her. But this is not the first time theyve done this.
Carly and Jason finally find the brief case with the vials that could save everybody from the virus. But right at that point, some gunmen come and point their guns at them and tell them they better not move.
Holly reveals to Robert that she left Luke alone and bleeding at the haunted star and no longer cares since she and Robert had an ill-fated romance, long ago. She gets up to leave and grabs the briefcase with the money, telling him she just wants to take her money and disappear. He tells her she must come back and give up the antidote. His daughter is dying. But she tells him that it does not matter to her. Whatever they had is gone since he left her to believe that he died for all those years. He did the same things to Robin, she reminds him. So she does not buy his heroism for his daughter. She tells him if he does not let her go, the entire water supply will be contaminated with the virus. He then lets go of her and she gets into her cab. And of all people to be driving her, its Luke Spencer.

She reveals that a kind nurse let Alexis have a lock of her hair. But she was put up for adoption. She tells him she thought, at the time, she made the right choice to have given up her daughter. He asks her if she might have reconsidered. She tells him that she realizes it is now too late. Even if the law could bend in her favor and let her find her now adult daughter, she believes she has given up her rights as a mother and has no business disrupting her childs life.
After watching Monica and Emily reviving Sam for the second time, Sonny asks them if theres anything more they can do for Sam.
