An angry Robert is brought in by two officers, insisting that they have the wrong guy.
Anna is looking at the sketch of Faison as Duke asks if Robert honestly expected her to believe that he is Faison. Anna says that Robert was adamant about it.

Anna tells Faison that Robert knows what he did, he knows the law and he knows the consequences. She tells him that she wouldn't blame him for taking out a restraining order.

Olivia tries to tell Lulu that it doesn't matter, but Lulu tells her it does to her. Olivia tells Lulu that she saw her with a baby, but it was a baby dog.
Connie closes her purse as Molly suggests retracing their steps to find the manuscript. She tells Todd that Starr gave it to him to read but before he could read it, it was gone. He says that yes, it was gone and so his he as he grabs his phone and heads out. He tells Molly, TJ and Connie to work it out amongst themselves. Molly implores Connie if she knows where the manuscript is to tell her. Connie says she already told her she doesn't know and asks why she would be interested in a teeny bopper fish out of water story. Molly asks how she knew what the book is about. Connie tells her that she knew from the title "Love in Maine". She tells Molly that it's what the kids are reading now anyway and tells her she doesn't read books without sex in them. She asks Molly if there is sex in her book and Molly says there isn't. Connie says then she wouldn't be interested in it and she's too busy running a magazine for it anyway. She tells Molly she may want to consider looking at her magazine. TJ suggests that maybe Connie saw the book lying around and moved it, then tells her that its important that they find it. Molly tells Connie that the copy they gave Todd is her only copy.

He tells Starr that he is just as bad as the rest of his family and maybe worse. Starr says that he's acting like he killed someone and realizes that he did kill someone. Johnny tries to get Starr to leave but she refuses to go. Starr says that she thinks she knows who he killed. Starr says she should have figured it out and knew that he was a suspect all along, but she couldn't believe he would kill his own grandfather. She asks if he killed his grandfather. Johnny says that the cops blamed Heather Webber for his death, but Starr says Heather never went to trial for it and she thinks the case is still open. Johnny tells Starr that Connie's blackmail has nothing to do with his grandfather's death. He says that killing his own grandfather would make no sense. Starr says that it would a little if it was because of Anthony's part in Cole and Hope's death.
Connie asks if Molly really doesn't have another copy of the book. Molly tells her she did print out a copy. TJ adds that it's gone and that it was his fault. Connie asks if she saved the book on her computer or maybe typed it on a typewriter. Molly says she accidentally overwrote the file on her computer. Connie laughs and TJ tells Connie it isn't funny, that the book meant a lot to Molly. Connie tells Molly that she's young and has time to write another book. Molly tells her that it wouldn't be like this because this book was a labor of love. TJ tells her that the manuscript has to be around the office somewhere and he starts to look around.
Ellie says hello to Maxie and Spinelli. Spinelli tells Ellie that he was asking how Maxie's first appointment went and he got chewed out for no reason. Ellie tells him that there actually is a reason. Maxie asks what that could be. Spinelli tells Ellie that it might be wise to stay clear of Maxie as she is still hurt that he chose Ellie and not her. Ellie says that she wasn't referring to their relationship. Maxie asks what she was referring to. Ellie says that she saw the lab reports and saw that Maxie and Lulu had their first hormone injections. Maxie accuses Ellie of stalking her.

Olivia guesses that the baby will be cute and cuddly like a puppy then tells Lulu that her visions aren't always accurate. Lulu says they are. Olivia said upsetting her is why she didn't want to tell her about the vision. Lulu tells Olivia that it's not her, it's the hormones. Olivia tells Lulu she needs to concentrate on getting ready for the baby, not listening to her ramblings. She suggests that Lulu go clean up and Lulu apologizes for crying before she goes to clean up. Anna walks in and tells Olivia that she is glad Olivia is there. Olivia asks what she can help with. Anna says she wants to talk about the sketch of Faison.
Dr. Obrecht enters Faison's apartment, telling him she noticed that he outmaneuvered Robert as she saw him being led away in handcuffs.

He says that Anna is the one who called the police. Faison tells her that Robert won't let him keep Anna. He's going to have to take her.
Robert tells Dante that he thought Dante believed him about Duke. Dante says he does but then he also told Robert to wait for him at his apartment and not to go after Duke alone. Robert asks Dante how he's going to get proof that Duke is Faison. Faison's name gets John's attention. Dante asks John if he knows Faison.
Starr tells Johnny that he knows that Anthony wasn't directly responsible for the accident but he did run her off the road because he was running, thanks to his ties to Sonny and that's why Connie shot out his tires. She says that when she asked Anthony for help, he just left them and that she told Johnny this. She tells him that he took her loss personally and reminds him how angry he was with Anthony. Johnny says that as much as he'd like to pin everything on Anthony, she's got it all wrong. She says she knows that it was Connie's fault and the lines could get blurred but Johnny can't confess, she doesn't want him to do that. She tells him that if this is true, he must be going through hell. Johnny tells her that she has no idea.
Connie stops TJ from looking around and tells Molly and TJ if she finds it, she will let them know but she doesn't think she will because Todd keeps moving things around. Molly asks if Connie doesn't have people to help her keep track of things. Connie says she has tried to hire an assistant but since she works with Todd and Kate has a reputation for being difficult, she has a hard time hiring someone. Molly offers herself and TJ as interns to Kate. TJ protests because he's a guy and Connie comments that he's a cute guy. Molly asks if that means she and TJ are hired.
Maxie tells Ellie and Spinelli that maybe she is on edge and she could have spoken too harshly. Ellie tells Spinelli that her advice is not to take anything personally because it's the hormones. Spinelli agrees that it must be the hormones. Todd walks into Kelly's and wants to speak with Spinelli. Todd asks if Spinelli is a P.I. and says he wants to hire Spinelli.
Olivia asks Anna where she got the sketch of Faison. Anna tells her that she got it from Robert and asks if that's the face she saw when she looked at Duke. Olivia says it is. Anna wants to know if Robert made any suggestions or mentioned any features to help Elizabeth draw the sketch. Olivia says she did all of the talking and that is who she saw. Anna comments that it's really him. Olivia swears that the sketch is the spitting image of what she saw when she looked at Duke. Anna says that she doesn't understand hallucinations and asks Olivia if that's the face she saw when she looked at Duke, does that mean that they are the same man?
John tells Robert and Dante that Faison was one of the most wanted at the Bureau until he supposedly died. Robert insists that Faison is not dead. John asks if he knows that for a fact. Robert says he just talked to him. He says that Faison is alive and well and living with another man's face. John asks if he told Anna. Robert says that's what got him arrested. Anna doesn't believe him. Robert tells Dante and John that he needs them on his side and he needs to get out of there before Faison hurts Anna or worse.
Faison says that Robert is always showing up where he is not wanted. He says he had to change his plans once already when Robin figured him out. Dr. Obrecht tells him that bringing Robin home alive would have made him a hero. Faison says he could have left Robin where she was. He says he didn't even need Robin but he didn't realize that Anna's attraction to Duke was so strong. He could have won Anna over on his (and Duke's) own merits. Faison says that Anna agreed to go away with him but Robert must be stopped. Dr. Obrecht asks if Robert must die. Faison says that as tempting as that is, no. He has a more effective plan in mind.
Connie tells Molly that they don't want to be interns because interns don't get paid. Molly says that's ok with her. TJ tells Molly that he's not working for free. Molly steps on his foot and tells him to not think of it as work. TJ asks what he should think of it as. She tells him she doesn't know, maybe community service. Molly tells him that they can use the internship to fulfill the required hours for school. Connie interrupts as Molly tries to convince TJ to be an intern with her to tell them that they are her interns and they can start tomorrow.

Maxie tells her that she's not helping them to get her mind off of Spinelli. Ellie says that what she is trying to say is coming out wrong. She tells Maxie how wonderful what she is doing is. She tells Maxie that its going to be difficult for Maxie and that she will need people to turn to. She says she would like to be one of those people. She said it's preferable to being rivals. Maxie asks how they can be rivals when Ellie already won...then tells her it's the hormones talking.
Spinelli asks why Todd wants to hire him. Todd tells him about Molly's missing manuscript that he needs found. Spinelli asks if the book was by a famous writer and if it was valuable. Todd says no on both counts and says that he needs it found because he promised Starr he'd read it and he'd do anything for her.
Starr tells Johnny that she knew it had to be big for him to do what he did to her and to Carly. Johnny tells her he didn't want to marry Connie, that it ripped his heart out to marry her. Starr says that she thinks she understands why but Johnny tells her that she doesn't and that's not even close. Starr then confesses that she doesn't understand, that there has to be something else. Johnny says that Starr is being way too easy on him. Starr tells him that some things aren't as black and white as they seem. She tells him that she won't press him anymore and they don't have to talk about it ever again if he doesn't want to. Johnny tells her he doesn't do much talking these days anyway. Starr tells him that it's a good start. She goes to leave and picks up her CD, then comments on how they made a good team. Johnny agrees with her. Starr leaves Johnny alone in his home.

Anna asks Olivia if some of her visions come true. Olivia says almost all of them, but they don't always make sense until later. She tells Anna about seeing her future grandchild as a dog for example. Olivia encourages Anna to take her visions with a grain of salt. Anna says none of it makes her feel any better about having Robert arrested. Lulu returns in time to hear this and asks Anna if she said she had Robert arrested.

Dante says he doesn't know, it's their first day as partners. Robert tells them that they have Olivia and her visions. He says that Olivia is a true psychic and her visions come true. Dante confirms this. Robert says that makes Olivia a reliable witness. John says that he prefers evidence but says that he's known a few psychics who have turned out to be right on occasion. Robert takes that as John believing him. Robert says that since John mentored under Anna, he knows how dangerous Faison is. He gives John a brief rundown on what Faison has done to Anna and her family. Robert says that Anna is blinded with grief over Robin or she'd have seen through Faison. He believes that she eventually will but says that Faison will turn on her when she does. John reminds Robert that he lost Robin, too.

Molly and TJ arrive at Kelly's. She tells TJ that she will research how to deal with people who have DID. She says that her manuscript is in Connie's office and if it's not, Connie knows where it is. She says that interning there could be their in to find it. As Todd walks past them, Molly calls out to him but he completely ignores her. Once outside, Todd runs into Starr. Todd tells Starr that Connie knows nothing about the book. Starr says she knows, she saw Connie at Johnny's. She tells him that she talked to Johnny. Todd wants to know what Johnny said. Starr says that she can't tell him but she changed her perspective and feels bad for Johnny. Todd tells her not to feel bad for him and leaves, commenting on how the day sucks.
Dante tells Robert that they both respect him but they can't just let him go. Robert tells Dante that all they have to do is go get coffee and he can be gone. Dante says they can't, especially since the Commissioner made the call. Robert impresses upon them how dangerous Faison is. John says that they don't want Anna in any danger. Robert tells them to go arrest Faison. John says they don't have a lot to go on. Robert says if they let him go, he'll get evidence. Dante says they can't do it. Robert tells them that they have to do what they have to do but if anything happens to Anna, it's on them.
Lulu starts to cry again, saying its unfair for Luke to send Robert back to deal with everything alone. Anna asks why Lulu is so upset about Robert. She tells Anna that it's not Robert, it's the hormones. Anna is happy that things are getting started with the surrogacy. Anna tells her how she's going to feel so much better when she is holding her baby in her arms. Lulu asked what Robert did. Anna tells her how Robert broke into Faison's apartment to find evidence against him but didn't find any. She says she doesn't see how one man can steal another man's face. She tells Lulu that everything Duke told her checked out. She says if there as any chance Robert was right, she wouldn't go away with Duke.
Faison escorts Dr. Obrecht to the door and asks if everything is clear. She says it is and she's going to get ready, then leaves. As he walks back into the apartment, Faison picks up the ski trip information and tears it up as he says they won't be needing those.
Todd is at Johnny's place and tells Johnny he wants to know what Johnny told Starr. Johnny says he told her nothing. Todd asks if he is sure and tells Johnny about the change in Starr's feelings about him. Johnny says that Starr had her own theories as to why he married Connie and he didn't correct her as much as he wanted to. Todd tells him that it needs to stay that way. Johnny says he is aware of what the stakes are. Todd tells Johnny to stay away from Starr. Johnny reminds Todd that Starr is a grown woman and she almost figured it out. Johnny wants to know why Todd hasn't told on him yet. He says that he knows that if Todd tells Starr then Johnny would tell her that Todd knew all along and helped cover it up. Todd tells Johnny that they both need to keep their mouths shut. Johnny says as long as she doesn't figure it out on her own. Todd leaves.
Starr talks to Molly and TJ about how Connie has to know what happened to Molly's manuscript. TJ wonders why Connie didn't say anything about knowing. Molly doesn't know. Maybe she ruined it or threw it out. TJ asks who lies about something like that, though. Starr says Connie does and tells them that they don't know what she's capable of.
In her office, Connie scratches Molly's name off of her manuscript and writes her own name. She then decides that she needs to change the title.
Spinelli returns to the table where Maxie and Ellie are waiting. He asks if everything is ok. Maxie says it is but she has to go and she leaves them. Spinelli asks Ellie if she's ok, she seems a little peaked. Ellie says that she and Maxie were just talking about where everyone stands. Spinelli asks if Maxie is clear that he stands with Ellie. Ellie thinks back to Maxie's comment about her and Spinelli being soul mates and says Maxie does.
