He says hes hoping once Gwen has her own baby then he will be able to give him back to Theresa. Downstairs, Rebecca and Gwen watch Theresa slapping Ethan on the news over and over. Rebecca says Theresa has just slapped away her last chance to get Little Ethan back. Rebecca says everything is going so well, nothing can go wrong. Gwen tells her that she is tempting fate. Rebecca says she is beginning to sound like Theresa, besides she doesnt believe in fate, she believes in reality. Rebecca says they have taken Theresas child and there is nothing she can do about it. Rebecca thinks that they are untouchable, nothing will happen. Gwen says she is worried something could happen to mess this up, something like Ethan finding out they were the ones who sent the story to the tabloids about him not being a Crane. Rebecca says they sent it from Theresas computer, so he will never find out that they sent it. They change the subject to Ethan and Gwen having their own child. Rebecca says she, Gwen, will have everything and Theresa will end up with nothing! Rebecca says when she does have her child her only request is that she be called Granbec, and not Grandma. Later, Rebecca councils Gwen not to lash out at Ethan anymore until she has her own child, then she can have his head on a platter. Gwen doesn't know if she can because it makes her so angry when he defends Theresa. Rebecca just asks her to try and keep it together, which she says she will. Ethan comes downstairs, and he says he just checked on Little Ethan. Gwen tells him how glad she is they are adopting him because now their baby will have a big brother. Ethan sees Rebecca watching Theresa on the news, and he can't believed Rebecca taped this. Rebecca says it was on the news, and she taped it from the news. Ethan looks at the tape says this is just too much for Theresa to take. Gwen says Theresa slapped him! Ethan says they are taking her child from her, so he doesnt blame her. Gwen asks why is it that Theresa can do no wrong in his eyes? Is he ever going to be over her? Will they ever have a future without Theresa? Ethan tells Gwen that she has no reason to be upset. He says he wants to be with her, and he only feels sorry for Theresa because she is losing her son. Gwen says they are doing her a favor by not letting him be raised by Julian, and nobody made Theresa sleep with Julian. Gwen says Theresa is her own worst enemy. As Gwen begins to talk about Theresas part in Sarahs death, Ethan says she never meant for that to happen. Gwen lashes out at Ethan and asks him why cant he take her side for just once? Ethan tells her not to be upset. He says he wants a life and family with her, so she should be happy. Gwen calms down, and Ethan goes upstairs to check on Little Ethan. Rebecca tells Gwen that she deserves a gold star for using her anger to draw Ethan to her. Gwen says she learned a few things from her, and she will make sure Theresa never gets her hooks into Ethan again.
At the Wallace house, Mrs. Wallace, Precious and Martin return. Precious takes the baby upstairs, and Mrs. Wallace asks what Luis is looking at? Luis says they are blueprints of Crane Industries, hes trying to find out where Alistair hides his secrets. He thinks if he can bring Alistair down, he can then get Ackland to admit to what he did to Sheridan, and then Sheridan will remember that she loves him and not Antonio. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Beth is on the phone with Alistair and is about to tell him what Luis is up to! Before she can, MRs. Wallace interferes and tries to stop her. Mrs. Wallace realizes she is talking to Alistair, and she wont let this happen. As they argue, Luis walks in and asks why her mother is so upset, and who is she talking to? When Beth doesn't answer, Luis takes the phone and asks who this is? Alistair says nothing, so Luis asks Beth who she is talking to? Luis says he can hear someone breathing and it sounds like a man. Alistair hangs up, and Luis asks Beth who she was talking to? She claims she was going to call the pharmacy to renew a prescription for her mother. Beth says these prescriptions are the only thing keeping her mother somewhat sane and out of the nursing home (a veiled threat to her mother) She says before the pharmacy answered, she saw her call waiting bling. She says she got a call from a telemarketer, it was one of those recorded messages. Beth tells Luis before she knew it she was wrapped up in what they were offering. She says that is why her mother grabbed the phone from her, because she knows they cant afford to buy anything after Precious shopping spree. Beth says by time he took the phone the message must have ran out. Luis believes Beths story, and he decides to call Hank. Mrs. Wallace ends up arguing with Beth about what she is doing, and she says Luis will eventually figure out that she is betraying him. She asks Beth if she will really rat out the one man she claims to love? Beth says nothing, so Mrs. Wallace tells her that she is doomed because Luis will succeed and he will get Sheridan back. She tells her daughter that she is done for! Hank shows up and he and Luis begin to plan. Beth says she has to find a way to stop them from finding Alistairs secrets. Luis asks Beth if she can bring them some coffee, and she say sure. Beth then gets an idea, and she tells her mom that she knows how to stop Luis from finding out where Alistair hides his secrets!

Pilar says she saw her on the PC, and she asks if this disease is worse than she originally thought? Eve tells her that she will pull through this, she promises. Pilar thanks Eve and says she feels better already. Eve says the medicine may nauseate her, so shes written her a prescription that may help.

attacks Kay! Tabitha is unable to get Fluffy off of Kay, so Endora zaps
the cat. Simone comes in right after and asks Kay if she is all right,
and how did she get that big cat off of her? Tabitha says they threw a
bucket of water on it. Miguel and Maria walk down stairs, and Miguel is
glad Kay is home because he says he was up all night with Maria and
neither one got sleep. Miguel says he has to go, his computer is down so
he has to go to school and finish a paper. He hands Maria to Kay and
runs. Later, Kay vents to Simone and Tabitha about not having time to be
with Miguel, and about the women at the cannery tormenting her about
Miguel going off to be with Charity. She says Miguel only has time for
her and school, he wont have time for Charity. Tabitha suggests they
all take a walk, and Kay agrees and goes to get the stroller. Tabitha
tells Endora that she is afraid Kays life is about to be turned
upside down just like her tea leaves predicted.

Meanwhile, Someone sneaks into Alistairs office and begins looking through his desk drawer. The person is caught by Sheridan, and she says :Its you! It turns out it is Fox. She asks what he is doing here? Fox says he was looking for money. He says he needs to post Theresas bail and get her out. He says he was hoping Alistair had some cash lying around, but Sheridan says Alistair never leaves cash lying around. Fox says he has to do something to help her. Sheridan says she knows how frustrated he must be. Fox wonders what kind of family they belong to, and he rants about his family. Sheridan tells Fox that she never got to know him very well, but right now he doesnt sound like any of the Crane men. Fox says maybe not, but if he cant get Theresa out of jail then he will start acting like a Crane in the worst way. Sheridan asks Fox if he sees a future with Theresa? Fox says maybe, he could see it happening. He says he likes her a lot. Sheridan asks just like, not love? Fox says he does love her, but there was a girl he loved before Theresa. He says she is with someone else now, but it is okay because he wants her to be happy. Sheridan says it sounds like he is not over this other woman. Fox says he is working on it.

She says they will make it a charity dedicated to reuniting mothers with their children, and she writes Fox a check for Theresas bail. They get a laugh out of pulling a fast one on Alistair. Sheridan asks Fox if it the love he has for this other woman that has made him change? He says he doesnt know, but being in love has made him want to be a better person. Fox says since they are talking about love, what made her choose Antonio over Luis? He says he doesnt get it, everyone thought she and Luis belonged together forever. He says he wonders what happened. Sheridan says she is in love with Antonio, and she tells Fox to stop asking her all these questions. Fox says Luis thinks Alistair and Dr. Ackland may have done something to her in the psych ward to make her forget Luis. Sheridan says that is not what happened, so Fox lets it go.

It seems the shots are making Gwen a little nauseous. Gwen tells Ethan someone bailed Theresa out, and she asks if it was him. Ethan says that is ridiculous. Gwen wants an answer. Ethan says he had nothing to do with this, but hes glad she did. Rebecca cant believe him and thinks he did bail her out. Ethan says he didnt, but as far as hes concerned Theresa has suffered enough. Gwen cant believe this and says no matter what they are doing or going through, Theresa always has him under her spell. Ethan says he doesnt want to fight with her about this. Gwen says she doesnt feel well, and this is making her feel worse. She asks if they will ever be free of Theresa? Ethan says they are free of her, he loves her and she is his wife. He says it is her constant suspicions of his love for Theresa that make her present in their lives. Ethan says he doesnt want to see Theresa suffer because that is they kind of person he is.

Later after Eve leaves, Ethan pays a visit to Julian. They talk about Little Ethan, and Julian admits to Ethan that he feels Little Ethan should be with Theresa, but he is not in a position to make it happen. Ethan then confesses to Julian that he is only adopting Little Ethan to keep Rebecca from filing charges against Theresa and so he can give the boy back to Theresa. Gwen overhears this and is stunned. Later, Ethan sees some papers on Julians desk, and he sees that Julian is searching for a child. Ethan realizes that Julian has another child out there, and he lashes out at Julian for not being faithful to his mother. He says it is interesting that when he finally thinks he might have a heart something happens to make him think otherwise. Ethan tells Julian that he is a selfish bastard, 100% crane. Ethan leaves, and Julian says hes trying to make up for being a bastard for Eves sake.

Gwen shows up, and Eve tells her all the test results are normal. Eve says she looks upset and asks if she is okay? Gwen says she is fine, so Eve leaves. Rebecca sees her daughter is upset, and she asks what is wrong? Gwen tells her mom what she has found out about Ethans motive for adopting Little Ethan, and she tells her mom what she overheard. Gwen says there is no way she will let Ethan give the boy back to Theresa. She is furious that the only reason Ethan has agreed to adopt him is to help Theresa. Rebecca says she has made sure that Theresa and her family cant survive in Harmony, and eventually they will have to leave or perish! She says once that happens they will never have to deal with Theresa or her inbred clan again! Rebecca tells Gwen to let Ethan think he can give Theresa her son back. Rebecca says one they have adopted Little Ethan, he becomes both of their child, so they both have to decide to give him back to Theresa. Gwen says she wont agree to that. Rebecca tells her to let him think he will be able to give the boy back until they adopt the boy. She tells her when the right time comes then she will stand her ground. Gwen says she will because there is no way she will give Little Ethan back to Theresa.

Sally tells them to give it a try, and she explains the story of the love noodle. The man starts at one end, and the woman at the other. If they meet in the middle with a kiss than their relationship is meant to be. However, she says if the love noodle breaks than the relationship is doomed. Chad says they will try it, and he assures Whitney that it will take much more than a noodle to come between them. Chad convinces her to take the test, and the noodle breaks in two places. Sally says this is very bad, and in all of her years of giving the test she has never seen the noodle break twice! Whitney asks her what it means? She doesnt want to say, but they force her to tell them. Sally says it means their relationship is not only doomed, but a big tragedy will result from their relationship that neither of them will ever recover from. Whitney gets a cold chill, and she says she feels like that woman on the talk show the other day. Chad tells her they were brother and sister, and something like that will never happen to them.

However, the good news soon wears off as Theresa begins to loose hope and says even if Gwen does have a child of her own, she wont give her Little Ethan back. She says keeping Little Ethan is Gwens revenge on her. Theresa says Gwen blames her for Sarahs death and now Gwen is making her suffer. Fox tells her that she cant keep doing this to herself, she has to keep Hope. A storm suddenly comes in, and Theresa thinks it is a sign. Later, Theresa receives papers from a messenger.

Theresa says she brought it in case the lock on the door jams, she locked it so they could talk in private, mother to mother. She tries to plead her case to Gwen and begs her not to take her away from her. Gwen says she is not taking her son, the courts already did that! Theresa says Rebecca was behind that, but Gwen says the court did not make a mistake and that Theresa needs to stop blaming others for all her problems. Gwen tells Theresa that she is not fit to raise the boy, that is why he was taken from her. Gwen tells Theresa that she has lost her son and there is nothing she can do. Gwen says Theresa should be thanking her for adopting Little Ethan because otherwise Julian and Rebecca would raise him. She says they are already planning to ship him off to boarding school. Gwen says she and Ethan will be better parents than they will. Gwen storms off, but Theresa tells her to stop. Theresa says she is the best parent for her child, and soon Gwen will have her own child so she doesnt need to take her son. Gwen says this is about what is best for Little Ethan, not what she wants. Theresa says this is about her mother getting revenge on her because she blames her for Sarah's death.

taking her son. Ethan says he isnt doing this to hurt Theresa. Fox
tells him to give Theresa her son back then! Ethan says it isnt that
simple. Fox wonders what it is with Cranes and love, it only seems to
cause them and the ones they love pain. Ethan says he hopes to make
things better for Theresa one day. Fox asks Ethan what he plans on
doing? Before he can answer, the guys hear Gwens screams. When Ethan

She says she has been kept from their son for far too long. Inside, Whitney continues to worry about the love noodle breaking. Chad tells her that she cant believe this silly superstition. Whitney knows it is silly, but she says she is worried and she doesnt know why. She says maybe it was that talk show they watched the other day. She says something about that show really bothers her. Chad says their situation is nothing like those people on that show, they found out they were siblings, and that could never happen to them. Eve and Julian walk in and Julian thinks he spots their son. Eve says that cant be him, there is no way! Meanwhile, Whitney feels like something horrible is about to happen, but she doesnt know what. Eve tells Julian that cant be their son, but Julian says he is the only one here young enough. Julian approaches a young Asian man and asks him if he is adopted? He says he is, and Julian explains his situation, that he is searching for his son. Julian realizes this man cant be his son because he is Asian, and the young man suggests Julian get a new detective. Julian apologizes to Eve for getting her hopes up. Eve says she doesnt know how many more of these disappointments she can take. Suddenly, Julian gets a call from Alistair, who asks if he has found his son? Julian realizes his father was behind this. Alistair gloats and says he will never find his son! Julian says he will pay for this, but Alistair says it is time to face reality. He tells Julian to go home to his wife Rebecca. He says she may not be the professional whore that Eve was, but she will keep him entertained. Eve is a wreck, and Julian comforts her. As they hug, Whitney and Chad are headed for the door. Whitney spots her mom outside with Julian, and she is once again upset. When she tells Chad what she saw, Chad says she must have been mistaken because Julian Crane does not eat in places like this. Elsewhere, Eve and Julian are driving away in Eves car, and an upset Eve isnt watching the road and ends up swerving off the road and crashing the car!

Luis and Hank return to Hanks place after dropping Beth off. Luis and Hank change out of their tuxes, and they discuss how nervous Beth was. Luis thinks shes just upset about what hes planning to do tonight. Luis says once he gets the goods on Alistair he will bring down Alistair and get Ackland to admit what he did to Sheridan, then he will finally get Sheridan back. Hank tells Luis to be careful because there is no telling what Alistair will do to him if he finds out. Luis says hes not worried about Alistair, and he thinks Alistair will be at the Casino the rest of the night. Later Pilar drops by and she has a letter in her hand. Hank asks what brings her by? Pilar says she came by to see Luis and give him something. Hank says Luis just headed out . . . Luis appears from the bedroom in his old man outfit, and Pilar doesn't recognize him until he speaks. She says if it wasnt for his voice he wouldnt have recognized him. He says that is good. She asks what is he doing in this disguise? Luis explains to Pilar what he is up to in regards to Alistair. Piar says this is too dangerous for him to be doing. Luis says he has to do this for the family. Luis says he could even find information in the safe that indicates what happened to papa. Pilar says she would like to know what happened to his father, but this is still too dangerous. Luis says it will be fine, and he says he will get in and out before Alistair knows he was there. After Luis leaves, Pilar gets a nosebleed which Hank notices. He asks her if something is wrong?
At the casino, Alistair decides to call it a night. He decides to speak to Sheridan before she leaves. Alistair says they need to go to his office and talk about her in-laws. Sheridan asks what about them? Alistair says he will tell her in the office where she wont be disturbed. Sheridan and Alistair go to the office, and Sheridan asks what is this about? Alistair knows Sheridan worked together with Fox to help bail Theresa out of jail. Sheridan admits she did, and she defends her actions and the Lopez-Fitzgerald family. She says Rebecca is on a crusade against them and it is not fair. Alistair says she has used Crane money for personal reasons. Sheridan says that Rebecca did the same thing! Alistair says if she wants to squander the Crane Foundations money than she will be out of a job. He tells her not to do something this rash again without consulting him first! Sheridan asks if that is all? He says for now. Alistair says Theresa is not a threat to the Cranes. Sheridan asks what that means, he thinks Luis is? Alistair asks where that came from? Sheridan says she remembers Luis used to tell her that he (Alistair) didnt want them together because he was afraid it would lead to Luis learning secrets that would bring down the entire Crane Empire. Alistair says that is preposterous! He says that Luis filled her head with nonsense, he never loved her. Alistair says he is glad Luis is out of her life and if he knows what is good for him than he will stay out. Sheridan assures her father that she isnt getting back with Luis, but she is curious about the secrets this family has. Alistair tells Sheridan that it is late and she should go home to her husband. Sheridan says she wont be dismissed, and she thinks their secrets should be out in the open so they dont haunt her or the family anymore. Sheridan still remembers having blood on her hands as a little girl. Alistair says Luis manipulated her and her memory to serve his own purposes. He says Luis has influenced her and brainwashed her to think ill of him. Sheridan says she believes Luis, she trusts his instincts. Outside the office, Luis listen. He says he wont let Sheridan down, he will find out everything Alistair is hiding and expose it. Alistair swears on his love for Sheridan that Luis is wrong and that they have no secrets. He tells her that it is late, and he will take her home. After hey leave, Luis sneaks into Alistairs office and heads for the safe.

Ethan takes the stand next, and he says he loves Little Ethan and wants what is best for him. Gwen tells herself, as she listens to Ethan, that she will never let Ethan give the boy back to Theresa. Julian is supposed to testify next, but he is absent and no one knows where he is. Rebecca wonders what her pookie is up to now, but claims her husband couldnt be here because of a prior engagement, and because they didn't expect the hearing to be pushed up to today. She also has his power of attorney with her. She produces it, from within her bra. She says she and Julian do care about Little Ethan, and they also feel Ethan and Gwen would back far better parents. As she approaches the judge to give him the power of attorney, she asks if he would like cash or bonds this month? Reilly tells them to surprise him, and he says he really loves the beach. Rebecca flirts with the judge and says a man with his physique really should summer at the beach. She strokes his hand and talks about him oiled up like a Greek god. She says she doesnt think she can control herself! He tells her to meet him in his chambers to find out! He then quickly concludes the hearing, giving full and permanent custody of the child to Ethan and Gwen. He also says from henceforth the child will be known as Ethan Winthrop Jr. Gwen is pleased and hugs both Ethan and her mother. Ethan tells Rebecca that he and Gwen should be the ones to tell Little Ethan what is going on. Rebecca says okay, and she says she will go thank the judge. Ethan tells Theresa that he is sorry.

She says she is going to ruin their lives!
Whitney and Chad return home to the Russell house. Whitney is still ranting and raving about how she swears she saw her mom with Julian tonight. Chad doesnt think so and says she is probably upstairs with her dad. Whitney hopes he is right, but cant find her anywhere. TC comes down thinking it was Eve, but it isnt. TC thinks she is probably still at the hospital, but Whitney isnt sure. Later, TC gets the news that there has been a car accident and Eve was involved. Whitney and Chad go with them, and Chad says he will drive. After they leave, the phone rings.
Eve and Julian have crashed the car they were in, and Eves automated dashboard emergency system (They call it SkyCom) is triggered. A woman's voice asks if anyone is there and says they have received a signal that their airbag deployed. The womans voice asks if they need help? Both Julian and Eve are out cold and do not answer. The woman says that she will notify emergency services in the area of their location and will check back with them. Julian finally comes too and wonders what happened. He looks over and sees that Eve is still passed out. Julian worries about her, and he examines her. He tells her to wake up! He says he cant lose her and he loves her more than his life. Julian pulls Eve out of the car, and she begins to regain consciousness. Eve asks what happened? Julian says she was pulling off the road when the car skidded. Eve says TC will be so upset with her because he loves this car. Julian says hell take care of it, but Eve says she will handle it because she cant have TC or anyone else finding them together. She remembers last time they had an accident and TC caught them together in that diner. She continues to feel guilty about ruining TCs car, but Julian says it is all right. Julian says hell call the toe truck. Eve says he cant be here when they come. Just then the emergency lady notifies them that police, paramedics, and the cars owner are en route to them now. Eve says this cant happen! Eve tries to call TC and tell him that she is fine and for him not to come, but by then TC has left the house with the others. Julian tells Eve to call his cell phone. Eve tries, and TC answers. Eve lets TC know that she is okay and there is no need for him to come. She says she swerved to avoid and animal, but she is fine. She says there is no sense in him worrying. She says shell have the car towed and she will pay for it. TC says he doesnt care about the car, and he insists on taking her to the hospital to see if she is okay. Eve says no and she asks him to go home and wait for her there. TC says okay he will. Meanwhile, Julian has SkyCom (HArmony's version of OnStar) call for a tow truck and stop the police and paramedics from coming. When it begins to rain again, they take refuge in a nearby barn. The barns owner allows them to stay in it for awhile, and Julian pays him for the trouble. Meanwhile, TC refuses to go home and tells Chad to continue to the accident. Back at the barn, Eve thanks Julian for taking such good care of her. He says he is sorry they didnt find their son tonight. She says it isnt her fault, it is Alistairs. Eve coughs, and Julian holds her and says his body heat will keep her warm. Eve says the sound of the rain is so nice. Julian says it is very peaceful. Julian ends up pulling Eve into a kiss, but she pulls away and says it isnt right. Julian apologizes, and he says he loves her and is very happy with her right here and now. Outside, TC and the others find the car, and he says this is more than no big deal. HE wonders where Eve could be. Whitney fears she is up to no good. She convinces her dad to wait with the car incase Eve comes back, and she and Chad go looking for her mom. They find them in the bard right as Eve and Julian are sharing a kiss. Whitney says her dad will kill them both when he sees this, and she cant wait! Back at the car, TC gives up on moving the car and goes off looking for Whitney and Chad, as well as Eve. HE sees the barn and heads there
