Allison is in her room at St. Annes. She is remembering when she confessed to Vicky that she had taken Jessica. Rae enters the room. Allison asks if they were supposed to have a session today. No, Rae just wanted to see her before her meeting with Vicky. Allison is starting to chicken out of the meeting with Vicky. Rae reminds her that she herself told Rae that she needed to apologize. Allison thinks Vicky will never be able to forgive her. Rae reminds her that she was the one that brought Jess back to Vicky safe and sound. After four long weeks though, that must have been hell on Vicky. Rae comments that four weeks is a lot less than a whole life time. Allison figures out that something like this has happened to Rae before. Rae finally breaks down and tells Allison all about Skye. Allison is very sympathetic to Rae. Rae tells her they have to concentrate on her now, this is her day. Allison doesn't think so. Rae reminds her that Vicky knows Allison was under the influence of Mitch Lawrence. Allison doesn't think Vicky will be able to forgive what she has done. We flash back to when Allison
stole Jess. Does Rae really think that Vicky will forgive her? Rae doesn't know, there are no
guarantees. Allison gets discouraged by those words again. Rae rebuilds her confidence, and knowing Vicky the way she does, she thinks Allison may have a good chance of Vicky forgiving her. Rae comes out into the hall to great Vicky and Ben as they arrive. Ben tells Rae that he is going in with Vicky. Rae doesn't think that is a good idea, it will intimidate Allison. Ben tells Vicky she can change her mind, he doesn't want her in there alone with Allison. Vicky decides to just do it and get it over with. Ben tells her he has his cell phone. Vicky assures him she will be okay. Ben leaves. Rae thanks Vicky again for trying to help Allison. Vicky tells her she is trying to help herself also. Rae tells Vicky that she will be near by, and leaves. Vicky takes a deep breath at the door and enters the room. She walks in and sees a lady sitting in the chair with her back to her. She calls out to Allison. Gum smacking Nicki turns in the chair to great Vicky.
Vicky and Ben are in the foyer at Llanfair. Vicky is staring into the mirror that she just broke seeing Nicki. Nicki tells her that now she will have 7 years of bad luck. Vicky yells no into the mirror and turns away. Ben asks her what is going on. She tells him that she just saw Nicki Smith. She tells him that Nicki talked to her too. Nicki wanted to go with her to see Allison Perkins. Ben is getting very concerned. He asks Vicky if this means that Nicki is coming out again. No, it doesn't meant that. Her alters never appeared to her before, they became her. Her alters are
integrated now, and she will not let this happen again. Ben tells her she is right, and another thing she isn't going to do is to go and see this Perkins lady today. Vicky is
insistent that she go see Allison. Ben is not pleased with this at all and tries to talk her out of it. Vicky thinks that she needs to handle this problem by facing it head on. She has been thinking of the Nicki Smith side of her personality because Allison is back in her life. Ben asks her if she is afraid of Nicki coming out again. Vicky assures him that she will not let Nicki come out again. In the past, she couldn't control it, but she is certain that she can now. Ben tries again to talk her out of seeing Allison. Vicky insists that she has to. If she doesn't, she is giving in to her fears. That is what Nicki wants, for her to be weak. Ben is going to be there with her too. Of course he will be there, he tells her. Vicky goes upstairs.
