At The Floating Rib, Nathan tells Maxie he wants to celebrate Valentine's Day by having them spending some quality time alone and asks what she says to that. She replies she would like that. They notice Dante walking in by himself, knowing that Lulu is also alone. She then concludes to him, that she has ideas for their friends. Jordan enters, notices Curtis and angrily tells him he better leave. He asks her what she will do if he does not leave. She tells him she can have him arrested and impound his car. He reveals to her that he is not following Jordan and has a legitimate reason to be in this public place. He's there to meet Valerie for a date. André, Dante and Nathan surround them and overhear. Jordan asks her detectives to let her talk to Curtis privately and she continues to confront him, telling him he better leave Valerie alone. He tells her he won't be intimidated as he reminds her he knows how she's screwed up the lives of both Shawn and Thomas. Dr. André Maddox comes to meet with Jordan for their date and Curtis leaves them alone and goes off with Valerie. TJ appears and waits for Molly. Curtis introduces him to Valerie. Maddox can clearly see that Jordan has a serious issue with Curtis. She explains Curtis is her former brother in law and they are not on good terms. André suggests that the problem could be easily solved if they went elsewhere yet she tells him that if Curtis is not leaving neither should they. André can clearly see that Curtis has the power to press Jordan's buttons and asks her what is the connection. She explains she met Curtis when she married Thomas who was in the military when Curtis was in the DEA. After Thomas died, Curtis kind of recruited her into the DEA, and it did not turn out well. Curtis and Valerie play pool and she tells him she wants to know more about him. Nathan goes to join Dante and play pool after Maxie has left. Jordan explains to André that she blames Curtis for the ending of her marriage to her son's father. She admits that she has concerns not only about TJ being around Curtis, but Valerie as well.
At Wyndemere, Laura makes it clear that she is not in support of her son and new daughter-in-law spending Valentine's Day together. She reminds Nikolas that he might not want to be offering his grandmother's jewelry to Hayden because there is going to be an official reading of his grandmother's Will. Laura warns her son that he cannot ignore threats from Helena even if she has passed. She wishes the two of them a happy Valentine's Day and leaves. Alone with Nikolas, Hayden remarks that his mother appeared to be discontented that she (Laura) was invited to the event yet he assures her he's not worried as he knows exactly what is in the Will, while she watches him locking his secret safe. He explains that the family estate is passed to the eldest son which is himself and Spencer will inherit it from him so he has nothing to worry about, he tells her. He affirms that his financial position is quite secure and, as his wife, she can also benefit from it. They go off together ready to share intimacy in the bedroom.
At The Haunted Star, Lulu is bartending and lost in thought while she remembers a previous Valentine's Days when he placed a necklace in her glass, and she almost swallowed it. A customer asks her if she thinks his girl will like the ring he has for her. She replies that it's fine as long as he doesn't put it in her glass. Laura goes to find her daughter and warns her that Scott Baldwin sent her an invitation to the reading of Helena's will. Lulu thinks she's also been invited but thinks it's a bad idea to attend the reading. Laura plans to be there. Laura leaves. Maxie goes to visit Lulu and remarks that as the owner of the establishment, Lulu should not have to be tending bar on Valentine's Day. It's so unromantic and so she suggests that Lulu enjoys a relaxing night of massage at The Metro Court. She informs her that she and Nathan arranged it as their Valentine's Day gift to her along with a sitter for Rocco while she's gone. Lulu agrees to leave and Maxie calls Nathan while he's at The Floating Rib. She reveals to him that she's arranged for Lulu to go somewhere and she needs his help doing the same with Dante so that their mutual friends will accidentally run into each other and hopefully get back together...at least for that night, or possibly permanently. When Nathan gets off the phone, he informs Dante that their desk sergeant wants one of them to cover a B&E at the Metro Court. Realizing he has nothing planned for the evening, Dante easily agrees it should be himself instead of Nathan who goes there, and he leaves.

He tells her he cannot easily do that because she is recovering from major trauma. Sam reminds him that the word can't has never been in his vocabulary and she does not think he should use that word now. He asks her if she has always been this stubborn. She tells him that she knows the doctors are being cautious not wanting her to leave but she is fine. He assesses he knows she misses Danny and asks how she expects to leave wearing only a hospital gown.

At the hospital, Lucas finds Brad who tells him maybe he needs to have a conversation with his step-sister, Kristina who they notice sitting nearby alone having a conversation which he just happened to overhear. Lucas goes over to talk to Kristina and asks her if she intends to go and celebrate the holiday. Knowing she has no plans nor a date, he asks if she might want to join him and Brad. She declines but asks them (knowing how it relates to them), how and when they discovered, and how it affected them by finding out they were not straight. She does not admit it's herself who has found out she is not straight, as she talks about this friend in this situation. Lucas explains to her that it's usually more than just one incident that alerts someone to their sexual orientation and talks about how he could see that he was different than other boys while growing up. He noticed he could not relate to the values and interests of the other guys. He admits to Kristina it took him a while to come out, yet Brad admits it was easier and more natural for him to do so. They both talk to her about how her friend's parents might be old school and so it's a judgment call. Lucas tells Kristina the most important thing for her friend is to be brave.
Molly goes to find TJ at The Floating Rib and indicates that maybe now is the time for them to have sex for the first time.

Hearing that, he is surprised that she would not choose something more lucrative. Yet she informs him that her mother taught her the value of good work over money. He informs her that policing is about the law and not about good work revealing he might not be comfortable dating a future cop. She then goes off and talks privately to Jordan whom she knows has concerns about her being with Curtis. Jordan warns Valerie that she needs to see that Curtis is trouble and realize the best thing she can do is walk away and forget she ever met that man. Valerie asks her boss why she has a professional concern since Curtis does not work at PCPD. Jordan tells Valerie associating with Curtis could jeopardize her career, given his fondness for drugs. It will reflect poorly on Valerie, Jordan warns her, as she encourages her to find out about Curtis' involvement with cocaine.
Lulu goes to the place Maxie sent her to, as Dante goes where Nathan has sent him.

Right outside, Maxie and Nathan conclude that they've successfully implemented their plan although they are not certain of the outcome.

Laura calls Scott Baldwin to inform him she definitely plans to attend the reading of Helena's will.
At Wyndemere, Hayden goes to attempt to crack the code to Nikolas' private safe while he's upstairs in his bed wondering where she went. Elizabeth finds her and demands to know what the hell she is doing.
