Nash comes home. He immediately turns on his answering machine to listen to his messages. One message is from Tess, informing him not to make any plans because she is dropping by with a surprise. The other message is from a business associate, telling him that a company is going under and he can forget about the dividends. The buzzer sounds and it is Tess, telling him to let her in. He looks at a picture of a grape vineyard and tears it up just as there is a knock on the door. He opens the door to see that it is Tess, and he throws the wadded-up picture out into the hall.
Adriana comes to visit Antonio. She apologizes for coming by so late. He tells her to come by any time. She asks him if they could go out for dinner because she is starving. He declines the invitation, saying that he has to meet Rex at Rodis. Adriana is surprised that he is meeting Rex. Adriana asks him if she can tag along, and she will just hang out until his meeting is over. Antonio agrees and tells her to let them go. She hands him a sucker and tells him to wait a minute, and she heads off for the bathroom. He asks her if there is anything that she would like to tell him. She comes out of the bathroom carrying some womans bra and asks him if there is anything that he wants to tell her.
Layla asks Evangeline if she is still in love with John. Evangeline confides in her that she is reminded of John all the time, and she admits that she is still in love with him. Layla tells her that their mother had let her believe that it was all just a one-way street, but after seeing Johns actions she now believes that he cares very deeply for her. Evangeline doesnt quite believe her. Evangeline informs her that all these feelings dont matter to her as long as he is in love with someone else.
John comes back into Marcies apartment. He asks Bo if he has found anything. Bo informs him that no, he hasnt found anything, but he has police officers everywhere he thinks Marcie might be. Bo cant figure out why, after all these months this guy has been with her, he had chosen tonight to take her--unless he thinks they are on to him.
Hayes and Marcie arrive at their destination. Marcie asks him where they are. Hayes remarks that she will find out soon enough. Marcie offers to get him some help but he refuses, telling her that it is too late for that now. He greets all the other people (mannequins) and tells them that the Killing Club is back together again. Marcie thinks that she sees Natalie, but when she turns around she finds out that it is not Natalie at all, just a dummy that looks like Natalie. The arm of the dummy falls off and hits the floor.
Adriana tells Antonio that if he doesnt want anyone to know that Jessica is back, then she can keep a secret. Antonio informs her that Jessica is not back. Adriana apologizes. Antonio tells her that it is not what she thinks and that it belongs to a waitress at Capricorn. Adriana remarks that this is getting interesting. Antonio explains to her that the woman needed a place to stay, so he let her stay there last night. Adriana asks him if the bra is a souvenir. Antonio tries to change the subject, but Adriana insists that a woman just doesnt leave her bra behind, it is a necessary ornament. Antonio tells her that they didnt, so just let it go.. Adriana asks him if Jessica knows that he is opening his home to strays. Antonio tells her that he has nothing to hide, and then he changes the subject to her and if she has anything to hide with Rex. Adriana exclaims that they are just friends. They get into a little dispute, and Adriana apologizes. Adriana tells him that she is in love with Duke. Antonio declares that it is good that he is in her heart and away from the rest of her. They change the subject. Adriana notices a picture on the wall and asks if Christian had painted it. Antonio tells her yes. They discuss how many people miss Christian.
Tess comes into the apartment and asks Nash if this is bad timing. He tells her that the windfall he had yesterday had blown away. Tess is surprised. Nash explains to her that you lose some and win some. Tess just laughs. She goes over to the sofa and gets the package. She hands it to him. He opens it and finds that it is a vase. She explains that it isnt just like the one she broke, but... He tells her that he likes it. She asks him if he is cold. He tells her no, but he will go and get dressed. He heads for the bathroom. She opens the door and picks up the wadded paper. She starts to unfold it, but Nash comes back and takes it away from her. She is surprised that he is hiding something from her.
Bo is on the phone, and he tells the listener to check the airports and every road out of Llanview. He hangs up and tells John that Hayes wasnt the only one with Marcie at Rodis. Bo tells John that Marcie was having a conversation with Hugh Hughes. John asks, "From the district attorneys office?" John tells Bo that Hughes had taken Marcie home the night before. Bo tells John that he will leave a message at the D.A.s office saying they want to see Hugh as soon as possible. John vows to find and stop Hayes before he can kill someone else.
Hayes and Marcie argue, as usual. Marcie tries to remind him of all he has accomplished. Hayes informs her that none of this matters, he is still an outsider. He then goes on to explain to her how he had gotten checked into Llanview Hospital and had made it a point to meet Michael McBain. He reminds her of all he had done for her, and that she hadnt appreciated it. Marcie tries to tell him that she did appreciate it. Hayes doesnt believe a word that she is telling him. Hayes also tells her that her friends, Nick and Rex, hadnt had time for him, but all that has changed. Marcie wants to know what he has done to Rex. Hayes goes over and takes the sack off Rexs head and tells Marcie that Rex is not a dummy at all, but he couldnt say that about her.
Antonio tells Adriana that sometimes he goes to Christians grave just to talk to him about everyday stuff. He tells her that he talks about her, about their mother, about Jessica, and about Jaime. He also tells her that he is sorry that the only Christian she got to know was the imposter. They continue to talk about Christian and how much Antonio misses him, but he is glad that he has got a nagging little sister to worry about him. He tells her that they should go to Rodis. They leave the apartment.
John gives the other officers instructions on where to look for Marcie and Hayes. Bo informs them that they are to consider Barber armed and dangerous. The officers leave. Hugh knocks on the door. When he enters, Bo questions him about how he knows Marcie. Hugh tells them that he had met her at Ultraviolet, and she was really hammered.

She asks him about his family helping him. He refuses to ask them for help. She offers him assurance that he will get the land. He tells her to leave, saying she had brought him a surprise and now he wanted to give her one. She wants to know what the surprise is, but he refuses to tell her.
Layla tells a lie about her night with Antonio. She sees the looks on their faces and then tells them that she was only joking. Antonio goes to talk to the bartender about Rex.
