Sorry for the delay! I didn't expect the summary to be this late (real life problems today!)
At the Book Cafe, Luis has imagines Sheridan regaining her memory after being kissed by him. In reality, she has remembered nothing. Suddenly, Sheridan begins to hear her baby cry, and she blurts out "My baby . . . . " Luis looks at her and then outside. Outside, Pilar tells Beth that she knows why she doesn't want Sheridan to see her baby. Beth thinks she's been caught, but it turns out Pilar only thinks Beth doesn't want to go through the pain she felt when Sheridan used to insist Beth's baby was hers. Pilar says she can't imagine what that must have been like for her. Pilar suddenly gets a call from a customer inquiring about Grace's B&B. She takes the call, and Beth notices that Sheridan and Luis are heading their way. Beth realizes she cannot have Sheridan see Martin. Fortunately Pilar has to leave, so Beth asks Pilar to take Martin with her, which she does. Sheridan comes out, drawn by the cries of her baby, but by time she gets to Beth and Mrs. Wallace the little boy is gone. Sheridan heads home to Antonio, and Luis tells Beth that he'll be over later to visit. Beth thinks Luis is coming to see her, but her mother tells her the only reason he is coming over is to see his son!
At the courthouse, Judge Sanders rules that Theresa should lose custody of her son. Theresa is devastated, and Rebecca is overjoyed. The judge says this is only temporary, Julian and Rebecca will have custody for a year and then the case will be reviewed. He advices Theresa to get her act together before they meet again, and she insists she will. Ethan doesn't think this is right at all, and Rebecca hits home when she asks him to look into boarding schools for her because she wants the boy shipped off tomorrow! Meanwhile, Theresa thinks there is still hope, so she goes to Julian and begs him for help. It appears as Julian is about to help Theresa when Rebecca warns him that if he says a word than she will expose all of Eve and his dirty little secrets to TC and Whitney. Julian tells Theresa that there is nothing he can do. Eve wishes Julian would have helped Theresa, but Julian says there is nothing he can do without exposing their past. Theresa ends up getting a pep-talk from Fox, Whitney and Chad, and she begins to see that she has not lost her son for good. She decides to go say goodbye to him. Meanwhile, Ethan tells Gwen that this is wrong, Little Ethan should not be with Rebecca and Julian. Gwen agrees, and she tells Ethan that she feels they should adopt the boy. Theresa overhears this and is floor. She braces herself against the table to keep from passing out.
At the Bennetts, Ivy and Sam ask Charity why she is acting out the way she is? They say she is in danger of flunking out of school. Sam says he thought she wanted to be a teacher? Charity says she does. Ivy says if she keeps this up than she is going to end up like Kay. Ivy says Kay does not have an easy life because she never went to college, is that what she wants? Sam decides to talk to Charity alone, and he says he believes she is acting this way because of her heartbreak over Miguel. He says he wants to help her, and asks her to confide in him because maybe he can fix it. Charity says he can't. Sam says he can't promise the hurt won't go away, but it will get better. He tells Charity that he loves her, they all do. Charity tells Sam that if he still believes in love after what Grace did to him than he is a bigger fool than she is! Sam speaks to Charity about love, the love they all have for her, and it brings her to tears. He asks her to confide in her. Charity remembers her deal with Death and how it cost her Miguel. She lashes out at Sam and says he can't fix this, no one can, so just leave her alone. Sam finally leaves, and Charity breaks down when she looks over at Tabitha's and sees Kay, Miguel and Maria together as a family.
At Tabithas, Simone questions Kay about the life she has chosen for herself. Kay
says it is hard, but it won't always be this way. She says eventually she'll be
able to quit working at the cannery. Simone isn't sure, but she sees how Kay,
Miguel and Maria are together. They seem to be happy. Still, Simone tells Kay
that she is and always has been selfish; if they look her name up in the
dictionary they'll the words manicures, hammocks, and ice tea. Kay says that was
the old Kay, she is now a responsible and loving mother who only wants to marry
the father of her child. She says by the way things are going, she doesn't think
that is far off at all!

Charity heads down to the pier to think. She remembers seeing Miguel with Kay and their child. Charity tells herself that she has to stop feeling sorry for herself because she gave up being with Miguel to save the baby. She says if she cant be with the man that she loves than shell have to be with the men she lusts over. Charity wonders what Reese is up to. She goes to call him only to see Kay and Miguel, with Maria, out taking a walk. Charity tells herself that is it, shes calling Reese so he can come down here and she can float his boat. Before she can, Father Lonigan shows up. Charity says she doesnt want to be his catch of the day. She tries to be quiet, but Father Lonigan senses her presence. Father Lonigan knows she is there, and he also knows something is wrong. Charity, who is crying, says it is no big deal and that she has to go. He stops her and asks her why she is crying? Charity says it doesnt matter, but Father Lonigan says it matters to him. He asks her to unburden herself to him. Charity finally makes a confession to him. She says she has seen death again, several times in fact. She says death came for Maria, but agreed to spare her if she gave up Miguel. Charity says without Miguel she is empty, but she cant have him or Maria will die. She says that is why she was crying. She says she has lost everything, even hope. Father Lonigan says he knows she only did what she thought was right, but Death is not allowed to bargain with mortals because heaven forbids it. He says he feels evil was using Death to torment her and deprive her of her happiness. Father Lonigan says she has always been good, and Maria is an innocent soul, and God would never allow this pact to be made. Charity says she hears what he is saying, but she doesnt believe him. HE asks why not, has she lost her faith? Charity says she has lost her faith. Charity says people sin to get what they want and they get it! Charity says she cant go back to the way she was because she no longer believes good wins out over evil. She says evil has taken everyone she has loved from her, and she cannot have faith and hope without love. She says unless God brings Miguel back to her than she will never have faith again! Father Lonigan says he will pray for her long and hard. Charity thinks he shouldnt waste his prayers on her.
Miguel thanks Kay for helping him stay positive and cheering him up after the lousy day hes had. Miguel cant believe how happy Kay is considering how much she works. Kay says she does it for him and Maria. Still, Miguel says shes going to wear herself out if she keeps it up. Kay says shell be fine as long as she has him and Maria to come home to. Miguel knows this isnt how she wanted her life to turn out. He thinks she was probably expecting to finish college, not drop out. Miguel asks if she ever stops to think about how difficult her life is? Kay remembers the girls at the cannery teasing Kay about her job. Kay said the job was temporary, but the girls at the cannery said they claimed the same thing when they started working here at her age. Miguel tells Kay that she looks upset, and he asks what is wrong. She says she was just thinking about how nice it is to be with him and Maria and not at work. Kay tries to convince herself that she will not end up like the women at the cannery, she will not work there her entire life.
Pilar is taking care of little Martin at the B&B. Luis stops by to see his son. He tells him that hes sorry he hasnt been around much lately, but that is all going to change. Luis cant believe how big hes getting. Luis looks at the baby and sees himself, but he doesnt see Beth. Luis says he sees Sheridans smile and Sheridans eyes in him. Pilar tells Luis that he made this baby with Beth and he owes it to him to raise him with his mother. Luis says he knows, he just cant accept a life without Sheridan. Pilar says he must put this baby first, and he must be an equal partner with Beth in raising him. Luis says he knows and he will start making things up to Beth today. He says hes going to go over and see Beth right now.
At the cottage, Sheridan is looking at a scrapbook, which has pictures of Luis in it, when Beth shows up. Beth wants to continue talking about how Sheridan can help her get back together with Luis. Beth asks Sheridan to give her a makeover. Beth says Luis is coming over tonight and she has to look her best. Sheridan says that doesnt give them much time. In her head, Beth says You bitch! Sheridan says she means she wanted to take her shopping and plan the dinner first. Beth says she knows, but hes coming over tonight. Sheridan says Luis hasnt wasted much time. Beth asks Sheridan if she is changing her mind about helping her get Luis? Sheridan says she hasnt, it is what she wants and what Luis needs. Beth says good and she thinks they should get started. Sheridan suggests Beth wear something casual but elegant. Beth says she doesnt really have anything that would work. Sheridan says they are the same size so shell go look for something she can borrow. Sheridan leaves, and Beth says Sheridan is really nice. Beth says she almost feels bad for trying to kill her before. Beth rationalizes her crimes and says that was Sheridans fault for stealing Luis from her, but things have changed now that she is with Antonio. Bet then sees the photos Sheridan was looking at and fears Luis isnt completely out of Sheridans life yet. She tries to convince herself that Sheridan will be out of his life soon once Luis accepts that she is with ANtonio now. Sheridan returns with some outfits for Beth, and they select one that works. Antonio comes in and asks what is going on here? Beth says Sheridan is helping her get back together with Luis. Antonio says good and that it is time Luis moved on. Beth puts on the dress, and then realizes she doesnt have any jewelry. She asks Sheridan if she could borrow something? Sheridan says of course and tells her to go pick something out. Antonio doesnt think Sheridan should be involved with Luis in any way, even helping Beth get him. Sheridan says she wants Luis to be happy, and she wants him to be close with his brother again. Antonio says okay, hell do whatever she wants as long as Luis accepts he will never be with her again. He hugs Sheridan, who glances over at the scrapbook on the table. Antonio soon sees the photos of Luis, and he thinks there is no reason for her to keep these. He thinks they should burn them because they are only reminders of Luis. Sheridan agrees, and Antonio burns the photos! Beth returns from the bedroom all decked out in Sheridans things. Beth says shell get all this stuff back to Sheridan as soon as she can. Beth leaves, and Antonio hopes it works out for Beth and Luis. Later, Antonio carries Sheridan off to bed!
Luis, Pilar and Little Martin head over to the Wallace house. Luis says he is here to make up time lost with her and the baby. Pilar tells Beth that she looks nice, and Beth says she just threw it together. Beth goes inside, she met them on the porch, and straightens up for them. Pilar tells Luis that this could be his chance to be happy and have a family.
At the courthouse, Theresa goes into a rage after hearing Gwen say she and Ethan should adopt Little Ethan. Ethan holds Theresa back as Theresa tells Gwen that she cant adopt her son! Fox and Woody pull her away, and Woody says if she doesnt stop than she will end up in jail for sure! Gwen tells them all to keep that psycho away from her! Rebecca says she has mace if she needs it. Theresa continues to threaten Gwen, and she ends up saying that she will kill Gwen before she lets her touch her child. Unfortunately the judge returns and hears this. Woody sees the judge and tries to make excuses for Theresas outburst and she didnt know what she was saying, but Theresa says she knows what she is saying. Theresa says her child is hers and she wont let anyone else adopt her. Woody tells Theresa to chill, nobody can adopt her son without her consent. Theresa tells Gwen that she will never let her take her child, she will never have her consent! Woody begs Theresa to shut up! Ethan tells Gwen that he loves Little Ethan, but he will not take Theresas child from her. Theresa thanks Ethan and says it is nice to know someone on Rebeccas side actually has a heart. Rebecca ends up flirting with the judge and says she is so scared and her heart is pounding. She puts his hand to her chest to show him, and she begs him to protect her daughter and all the citizens of Harmony and lock Theresa up! Woody continues to beg Theresa to Prozac down! Suddenly the judge announces that he has changed his mind about custody of her son after her outburst, he is terminating her parental rights all together! Theresa begs him not to do this, but his mind is made up. Rebecca cries out God bless America! Theresa tells Rebecca to shut up and calls her a cow. Woody asks the judge to reconsider his decision because Theresa was just temporarily insane after losing her child, and Fox says Theresa would never hurt a fly. Rebecca says Theresa killed Gwens child and she would have killed Gwen if these people hadnt stopped her! Rebecca says she will adopt Little Ethan to protect the boy from Theresa. Ethan then sticks up for Theresa and says she is not a violent person and her actions are motivated by fear of losing her child. A fed-up Gwen refuses to stand and listen to anymore of this. She goes to leave, but Ethan stops her. Gwen lashes out at both Ethan and Theresa. She says Theresa just threatened her life, and what kind of husband defends a woman who killed their little girl? Gwen storms out, and Ethan follows her. Theresa once again begs Julian for help, but Julian cant help because of Rebeccas threats. Theresa begs the judge to reconsider, but he says her son will be better off without her. He also suggests Theresa take an anger management course before bringing anymore children in the world. Rebecca tells Theresa to get married before she spawns again. She says all of her family members have illegitimate children, so clearly Pilar was as bad at parenting as she was at doing windows. Fox tells Rebecca that is enough, and he tells Theresa that he and Whitney will keep helping her to see Little Ethan. Rebecca says Little Ethan is hers now, and anyone who helps Theresa will have to face the consequences. Outside the courtroom, Eve is upset because seeing Theresa lose her child has reminded her of her own lost child. Julian promises her that he will find their son. Julian has to leave because Rebecca is yelling at him to hurry up because she wants to go.
Back at the mansion, Ethan and Gwen continue to fight. Gwen says Theresa is violent and unstable, she is unfit to be a mother, yet for some reason he keeps defending her. Ethan says she is not unstable, but Gwen says it doesnt matter because Theresa cant go near the boy anymore. Ethan thinks this is all Rebecca's doing, she swayed the judge and now Theresa is suffering. Gwen tells him to forget about having pity for Theresa and worry about Little Ethan who is going to be adopted by Julian and Rebecca. Gwen says they are going to be bad parents, and Ethan says he agrees with her. However, Ethan says he thinks it would be best for them to convince Rebecca and Julian not to adopt the boy, and for them to be substitute parents. Gwen says she will not be Little Ethans stand-in mother. She says she will not love and raise him with the constant threat of Julian and Rebecca taking him from her anytime they want. She tells Ethan he is a monster for suggesting such a thing! Julian and Rebecca show up, and Rebecca has a brochure about a boarding school she wants to send Little Ethan to. Ethan says he is a little young to be going to boarding school. Rebecca says Churchill went off to school as a child, but Ethan says he was traumatized for life because of it. Rebecca says he still helped them win World War 2! Julian and Rebecca leave, and Gwen continues to push Ethan to adopt Little Ethan. Ethan says he cant do that to Theresa. Gwen accuses Ethan of still loving Theresa, and she tells him that they should just let Little Ethan suffer with Julian and Rebecca because he would be a terrible father!

Charity returns to her room and continues to look over at Tabitha's and watch Miguel with Kay and Maria. Ivy walks into Charitys room and says it is time they have a heart to heart. Charity says that is impossible because she doesnt have a heart. Ivy says she saw her looking next door and watching Miguel. Ivy tells Charity that it is time she get over Miguel. Ivy says she can either spend the rest of her life crying over what could have been, or she can get productive and make something of her life. Charity tells Ivy to leave her alone. Ivy refuses because she thinks she can help her because she knows what it is like to desperately love someone but not be with them. Charity says she is over Miguel, but Ivy says she will never be able to convince her of that. She says she has been in her situation and she is going about this all wrong. Ivy tells Charity that acting like a tramp is not the way to behave. She says her life is spinning out of control, and what she is doing is not going to make Miguel forget his obligation to Kay and the baby. Charity says she doesnt want him to forget. Ivy asks what she wants then because she is on her way to becoming a thirty-five year old waitress in a bar by the airport. Charity says she isn't, but Ivy tells Charity that she has no skills and no direction. She begs Charity to let her help her get over Miguel. Charity asks how she can help? Ivy says she was once like her, but then she took charge and became the chairperson for all of the Crane charities. Ivy says she threw herself into work. Charity says she had money, it was easy for her to drown her sorrows at Tiffanys. Ivy says she grew up with money and it never meant much to her. She says she found a direction for her life, and now Charity needs to do the same. Ivy asks Charity if she could go anywhere she wanted or do anything she wanted, what would she do, where would she go? Charity thinks to herself that she would go be in Miguels arms. Ivy says she is not a spiritual person, but she reminds Charity of her brush with death and her second chance at life. (Timmy music plays in the background). Ivy tells Charity that Timmy would have wanted his heart to have gone to someone who is doing something with their life. Ivy says she didnt know Timmy, but he must have been wonderful because everyone loved him. Charity says he was amazing. Ivy says Timmy managed to melt Julians cold heart, so dont waste his. Charity says she doesnt know what to do, all she ever wanted was to marry Miguel and have a family with him. She says now she doesnt know. Ivy asks if she had any dreams as a little girl? Charity says she and her mom were always on the move, so she never had any friends. She says then they moved to Harmony and she met Miguel She says that is when her life seemed to find a purpose. Charity tells Ivy that she doesnt think it is possible that shell ever be happy again. Ivy says perhaps they shouldnt aim for happiness right now then. She says theyll just aim for something to keep her mind off of Miguel. Ivy throws out tons of ideas, but none of them are good. Ivy ends up deciding that her computer should be the key to the rest of Charitys life. They look at the sites she has bookmarked which all have to do with fashion. Ivy thinks that is her passion, that is what she needs to focus on. Ivy suggests Charity go to a design school and study fashion. Ivy says fashion needs to be her direction, and she says it could lead her to the runways to Paris! Charity actually smiles. Ivy tells her not to worry about money because maybe she could get a scholarship. Charity fears she wont be any good, but Ivy says she cant be afraid to try or she will regret it. Charity says she cant have anymore regrets.

Later, Luis opens the wine and Beth puts on some music. She turns on the radio and Sinead OConnors Nothing Compares 2 U is playing. This was there favorite song in high school, and she says they should dance to it. She says this is such a coincidence it came on, but Mrs. Wallace knows Beth called the radio station to request it. The song eventually ends, and then they dance to a Natalie Merchant song (a remake of One Fine Day). This song reminds Luis of Sheridan. Luis stops dancing and says this song reminds him of Sheridan, so she turns it off. Beth asks him when he is going to forget about Sheridan? She asks if this dinner or romantic setting means anything to him? She cries "What do I have to do to make you forget about her?" Luis looks upset by Beths spastic behavior, so Beth apologizes to him and says she is just frustrated. Luis says he is the one who should be apologizing.

Meanwhile, Fox asks Theresa not to come up with any of her wild and crazy ideas on how to get her boy back. Theresa says she wont, and she leaves the room.
