Paloma is cradling Luis lifeless head in her lap, telling him its not fair for him to die and she should have listened when he asked her to go back to Harmony with them. She says that instead, she fought him out of foolish pride and now theyve killed him. She looks upward and asks God to forgive her, then says its all her fault and that she did love him and loves all of them.
Alistair points the gun at Martin who tells the old man that it has always been his way. Anything that gets in his way is to be discarded, sold, or killed. Alistair praises his clever phrasing, saying it must be the Irish in him and promising to sing Danny Boy over his lifeless body once he kills him. Martin tells him not to bother, its taken him a long time to find him, so go ahead and get it over with. He straightens himself and stands up straight. Alistair tells him theres no need to hurry; hes waited a long time to take his vengeance on him for stealing his wife from him. Martin asks who hes trying to fool since he himself drove her away with his abusive behavior toward her. Alistair tells him to shut up and agrees there is no need to wait. He says that Martin has already outlived two of his sons, his daughter will be dead soon enough, and Katherine and Sheridan are no great loss, and hell have lots of company where hes going.
At the Crane mansion, Eve asks Julian to tell her the name of her son. He remembers the conversation with Fox when the two of them discussed how they would tell the women they love that Chad is Eve and Julians son. Eve goes on talking about how wonderful it is that she will finally know who her son is, but Julian tells her it not easy to tell her. She asks him not to keep her in suspense, tell her the name of her son. Fox is trying to comfort Whitney who is still on the ground after her collapse. He asks if shes ok, and she tells him no as he helps her up. He says hell help her inside, but she doesnt want to go since Chad is in there. Chad walks up, telling them that Theresa is inside with Gwen and Ethan, and then notices Whitney looks sick. He asks if its her stomach and she remembers Fox telling her that Chad is her brother and that they cant get married because it would be incest, then she remembers finding out shes pregnant by him. He asks again if shes ok, and she says no, she isnt. (commercial)
Chad asks what happened, and Fox says shes feeling sick. He says hell go get Eve, but Whitney doesnt want to see her. He wonders why and she says shes feeling better. He tells her hes worried because shes been feeling queasy a lot lately, and then says hell go get something for her stomach and leans in to kiss her and she jerks away from him. He says she must be feeling bad if she wont even let him kiss her.
Julian tells Eve to sit down, and although she says she doesnt need to sit for good news, she allows him to guide her to a bench. She asks again who he is and tells Julian not to tease her. She says its a miracle hes been found after all the time theyve been separated and all the years of worrying about him. She then remembers when he was taken from the hospital after he was born and how she never saw him again. She asked how he managed to find out who he is. Julian tells her it isnt without a cost, but she says it will be worth whatever Alistair asked to be able to know who there son is. She asks again for his name, but Julian thinks about how painful it will be for Eve to find out the son she has been searching for is in love with and planning to marry her daughter.
Martin tells Alistair to go ahead and shoot him, asking what hes waiting for and telling him to show him the monster they both know he is. Alistair tells Martin he has no right to call him names after the way he ran away with his wife but Martin reminds him that he only helped her leave because of the danger the old man put her in. They hadnt been romantically involved for many years after they left. He swears he was happy with Pilar and hated to leave her and the kids but realized it was the only way to save Katherine from Alistairs evilness and avoid her sure death at Alistairs hands. The old man says he doesnt care when they became intimate, what he does care about is he took Katherine away from him and nobody gets away with making a fool out of a Crane. Martin sarcastically tells him that the way he is, protect his name but kill anyone he gets upset with, even his own wife and daughter. Alistair continues telling him he deserted his wife and kids and ran away with Alistairs wife, living in sin with here all those years while Pilar was sleeping with half her marriage bed empty all those years, and he thinks she wouldnt be any more understanding of Martins life since than Alistair is. After some more charges back and forth, Martin jumps at Alistair and grabs the hand holding the gun and they begin struggling for it.
Paloma tells Luis she cant leave him in the temple, that she does love him and is sorry he never got to hear her say so. She then says she has to get his body out of there. She tries to lift him or pull him to get him out but sees she doesnt have the strength. She tells him she will go out and block the entrance so nothing can get in there while she goes to find her Uncle and Aunt and Sheridan, and prays theyre still alive. She makes her way out over the pile of rocks, as we see Luis finger move and his eyes open. (commercial)
Chad asks Whitney why she jumped away from him, wondering if he did something wrong. She says no, and then begins to explain, but he says its ok; he doesnt like being touched when hes sick, either, and it just freaked him out a little. He wondered if she didnt want to get married so soon or something, then notices the way shes looking at him and asks if he has something stuck in his teeth or something. She giggles nervously and says no, then apologizes, saying shes sick. He goes to get something for her to drink. After hes gone, Fox apologizes again, saying he had to let her know Chad is her brother for her own good. She denies it again, saying he looks nothing like her or Simone or their mother, and not even Julian. Fox says that doesnt matter, hes still their son, but Whitney accuses him of making it up. Fox tells her he didnt, that hed do anything to make it not be true if he could, but it is. Eve is still asking what their sons name is, and asks where he is. Julian answers that hes in Harmony, making Eve wonder if they have ever passed him in town or talked to him. Julian says they both have, and she is thrilled, asking again for his name. She thinks once the girls meet their half brother they will forgive her and understand her past life. Julian warns her not to get her hopes up, and she agrees she might be getting ahead of herself, but at least the three of them might be good friends. He tells her its not that simple, but she insists it could be and wants him to make all her dreams come true by telling her the name of their son. Julian says thats the problem, some of our best dreams turn into nightmares. She wonders how finding her son could be anything but wonderful.
Paloma tells Luis shes sorry for leaving him, but she has to go find someone to move his body to someplace safe and then on to Harmony. She asks God why her brother has to die, and wishes he hadnt come to Mexico to see her. Luis, coming to, says Sheridans name.
Alistair and Martin are still struggling, wrestling over the gun. Alistair says no one wins in a battle over a Crane, but Martin tells him his money wont buy him victory this time. Alistair says people like the Cranes win because they are superior, while people like Martin are inferior, and thats why they are in the bottom class. He says his people find and make fortunes, while Martins grow potatoes. Martin gives one last effort and wrests the gun from the old mans hand. He then points the gun at him, asking about the weak and inferior. Leave it to the worlds biggest coward to crawl away like the yellow-belly you are, he says, and Alistair starts whining like a baby. Please, please dont kill me he cries as he crawls on the ground. Martin asks why he should listen to him beg for mercy when he didnt listen to Antonio, Luis, or Katherine when she begged him not to hurt her. He says theres no way. (commercial)
Whitney asks Fox to tell her there is a chance, no matter how small, that he is wrong and Chad isnt her brother. She wants him to say maybe he misunderstood what Alistair had said or maybe he really is lying because he doesnt want her to marry Chad. He tells her hed do anything to spare her pain, but he had to tell her the truth before she married her own brother. She is distraught, realizing he is being honest with her. Chad comes back at that moment and wonders whats going on with them, why they are looking so serious. Whitney doesnt want to tell him, but Fox says either she tells him or he will. Chad wonders whats going on, but Whitney tells him not to pay any attention to Fox. Chad asks again, and Fox finally tells him that he knows who Chads parents are.
Eve asks Julian if their son is ill or in trouble with the law. She says if he is, its because he never had his parents love. Julian assures her hes a fine young man, someone they can both be proud of. Eve is thrilled with that, saying Whitney and Simone will come around and be friends with their brother, and then remembers that Chad and their son are the same age, saying it would be wonderful if they became good friends. She suggests he might be able to come to Whitney and Chads wedding, but Julian tells her to stop. She wonders why hes acting that way and tells him to stop playing games and tell her his name. He finally tells her his name is Chad, which she finds to be a strange coincidence, but he tells her its not coincidence, he is Chad Harris. Eve is stunned.
Paloma piles the last stone over the opening and starts to leave when she hears a voice as Luis calls Sheridans name. She calls out to see whos there, and he hears her and calls her name. She realizes its Luis and hes alive, then rushes back in to him. She thanks God her brother is still alive. He asks where Sheridan is, and she tells him she doesnt know, but she is dead.
Martin is ready to kill Alistair, wishing he could have done it before hed killed so many people. Alistair tells him to wait, then shows him the two vials of snakebite antidote he is carrying. He tells Martin they arent dead, just barely alive, and the antidote will save them. He tells Martin to give him the gun and he would give Martin the medicine. Martin tells him hes holding all the cards and points the gun at him again. (commercial)
Luis says Sheridan cant be dead, but Paloma tells him she came after him with the Wheelers and they all saw the explosion that they thought killed him. He asks about Paloma and she tells him about the man trying to rape her and that she hit him with a rock, and that other rocks fell on him and he wont come to for a long time. He tells her she really is a Lopez-Fitzgerald. He asks what happened to Sheridan and the others, but all she can tell him is that someone on the phone wanted all of them dead. She apologized for not going home with him, saying if she had, theyd all be in Harmony now. He tells her its not her fault and explains that Alistair is the one whos been trying to kill them for years.
Alistair tells Martin to give him the gun and hell get the medicine that will save the women. Martin tells him he can kill him and get the medicine too, and hed rather see him dead. Alistair tosses the medicine in the air, telling Martin not to let them break. Martin jumps to catch them and Alistair runs away, saying Ta ta, Martin. Better luck next time. Martin catches the vials before they hit the ground. Alistair, taking a breather later, swears he will kill all three of them very soon anyway. Martin jumps into the pit and gives each of the women an injection of the medicine, hoping it will work. He thinks it was a fake, saying hes lost them both when neither responds afterwards.

Chad wants to know his parents names. He notices Whitney and Fox looking apprehensive and asks why, and why they wont tell him the names. He asks how Fox found out, but when he tells Chad he heard his father and grandfather talking about it, he wonders why they would care. He asks again for the names, but Whitney tells Fox not to. Fox tells him that Eve and Julian found their son, too, and Chad wonders about the coincidence. He says if Fox wont tell him his parents names, then at least tell him who Julian and Eves son is. Fox tells him its him.
Eve says Chad is a great guy and shed always thought there was something about him that reminded her of Julian. She says she never really minded his relationship with Whitney, then realizes what shes saying. Oh, my God, Whitney and Chad! she says, stunned.
Martin curses Alistair for lying to him, giving him a cure that isnt real. He then hears Katherine moan and realizes shes coming to just as hes climbing out of the pit again. He runs to her and helps her get up. She wonders what happened, then remembered the snake biting her. He tells her he was afraid he had lost her, then she asks for Sheridan. He tells her the antidote didnt work on her, but then they hear her moan, too. Now that they are both ok, the have to get out of the pit, away from the snakes, and he helps Katherine climb up the vine.
Paloma tells Luis he is very weak and needs to find medical help for him. He says they need to find Sheridan. She tells him to rest for a few minutes, but he says there is no time.
Martin carried Sheridan up the vine to the surface, then laid her down. He explains that he got the serum from Alistair who had been there to watch them all die. Katherine is just happy they are all ok. Sheridan finally comes to completely and asks whats happened. Martin explains it to her, then she remembers having a horrible dream, that there was an explosion and Luis had died. She looks around and asks for Luis, then sees the looks on the two older peoples faces and asks them to tell her hes not dead. Martin tells her it wasnt a dream and Luis is dead. She tells him he shouldnt have saved her, if he isnt alive, she doesnt want to be, either.
Luis and Paloma are on their way to find Sheridan. The girl tells him hes too weak, they have to rest, but he says they have to keep going. He steps over a log, then falls and hits his head on a stone, knocking himself out again. (commercial)
Eve asks Julian to tell her Chad isnt there biological son. Julian tells her he is, and she worries about the fact he and Whitney are brother and sister. Chad is figuring out what it means to be the son of Julian and Eve, remarking on the fact he and Fox are half-brothers and thats why they felt so close. He then realizes hes also Whitneys brother, and says it cant be true. He says he believes the part about Julian, but Eve cant be is mother. He begs Fox to tell him its not true. He remembers kissing Whitney, then turns to her and says incredulously Youre my sister.
Sheridan tells Martin he should have let her die, because without Luis she doesnt want to live anymore. Katherine tells her she has her whole life ahead of her, but she says without Luis she has nothing to live for, she just cant go on. Yeah you can, they here from behind them, and look to see Luis standing there. He tells her hes not dead, and she jumps up and runs to him, hugging him as the others look on happily. He swears he's not ever leaving her again.
