At the asylum, a guard catches and asks Norma and Edna where they think they are going? They say nowhere, so he says turn around and watch the rest of the show. Enda cant believe Norma had to sing that stupid song to her dad, that ruined everything. Normas father demands an apology, so Edna gives him one. However, Edna thinks theyll never get out of here. Norma says they will, she deserves a present that money cant buy this season. The guard sees them to their seats, he knows Norma escapes every year and he has to watch her per his orders. Norma claims they wouldnt dream of leaving during the show, and Enda just wanted to go get on her costume for the show. The guard asks what her act is, and Edna says she doesnt want to spoil the surprise as it is a show stopper. He tells her she can get into her costume, but not to try and leave this room. Edna thinks their opportunity to escape has been lost, but Norma says she has a plan. She tells Edna to do an act so she can steal the guard's keys. Edna doesnt know what to do. Norma tells her to do something, something to distract everyone. Norma tells her not to make her axe her again. Later, Edna comes out dressed in a Christmas tree skirt and with a feather boa. She calls herself cinnamon bun and does a strip tease for everyone. Norma says she said distract the guy, not disgust him. Normas father says she does have a certain something about her. Norma realizes it is now or never, and she tries to get the keys from the guard. The crowd begins to revolt and boo as Edna takes off her clothes. She swings her walker around, gets caught up in the curtains, and the show comes to an abrupt end. Shes got everyone upset as she wrecked the stage and the show, and Edna yells to Norma to help her. The crowd is coming for Edna. Norma throws daddy to Enda, who holds him up and says get back! Norma gets the keys from the guard and opens the doors. Norma and all the other inmates flee! Norma and Edna make it outside the asylum and Edna thanks the angels. Normas dad then tells Norma not to let that smelly old woman touch him again. He then tells Norma she knows what she has to do. Norma pulls out a knife and says Kill Tabitha! Edna asks if they can just head to Vegas instead? Norma points the knife at her, and Enda says she didnt think so.
At Tabithas, Tabitha realizes she is in big trouble for casting the love spell on Fox and Kay. The boys in the basement are spitting fire out the air ducts. She damns Kay for talking her into this, and if this spell overturns her first spell then the boys below will rain down havoc on them. Tabitha tries to cast a reversal spell, but it fizzles. Endora is giggling, and Tabitha says she doesnt need this added stress right now. She says Christmas is around the corner and she knows what that means. Endora says Santa! Tabitha says no it means Norma, and this year shes teamed up with loony tunes Edna. Tabitha says she must stop this spell, and she tries to tell Endora how they must stop this spell or shell be in deep trouble. Later, all the hearts that were flying out of the cauldron get sucked back in. Tabitha thinks maybe her spell worked afterall. Endora is disappointed, but Tabitha says this is best for now. She says she guesses they wont know if it worked or not until Kay and Fox come face to face. Tabitha says she knows Endora is upset, and Kay will be too. However, she says she will tell her she did the best she can. Endora zaps the cauldron, and the hearts fly out of it again. Tabitha tells her that she must not keep doing that, and she searches for a counter spell. Tabitha ends up falling on purpose ala the Three Stooges, and that makes Endora giggle and stop worrying about the spell. Endora wants her mom to do it again, but Tabitha says no the fun is over. Endora then makes her mom rewind and fall over and over. Tabitha yells at her to stop, but Endora is having too much fun.
At the Bennetts, Ivy tries to convince Fox that perhaps things with Kay are over. Fox wont accept that and says there has to be a way he can fix it. To herself, Ivy says not if she can help it, she wont lose another son to a maniacal woman. Fox continues to wonder why Kay would want to dump him. Ivy says maybe the phone call was an excuse to dump him. Fox asks what shes saying, that shes making excuses to break up with him? Ivy says Kay is very vulnerable, and she hasnt had much success in the love department. Ivy says Miguel ran off with Charity after getting Kay pregnant, and even Kay's mom left her family for someone who was practically a stranger. Ivy says shes no shrink, but when people you love betray you the way they have Kay, that leaves scars. Ivy says maybe Kay just cant commit to him. Fox refuses to believe that, they have discussed the future and he says Kay makes him happy. Ivy says she knows, and that is why she wanted it to work out. However, she says Kays emotional issues could take years to resolve. Fox says then fine, hell go through them with her. Ivy says he thinks he wants to, but he has so much on his plate right now. She says it wont get easier if he really wants to run Crane Industries. She asks if he has the time and energy to devote to Crane, to Kay and to Kays emotional problems? Fox says he doesnt see why not, and he thinks shes blowing Kays problems out of proportion. He says Kay is strong and level headed, and what she is going through is temporary. Ivy says she hopes hes right. Fox asks his mom if shes trying to get him to break up with Kay. Ivy says all she wants is for him to be happy. She says if Kay is the girl he chooses then shell be happy. Fox says well shes the girl he chooses. Ivy says it wasnt long ago he chose Whitney. Fox says things change. He says he had strong feelings for Whitney, but it is different for Kay. Ivy asks how he doesnt know it could be different with someone else, perhaps better? She thinks he should use this time to find out. Ivy suggests he come to the country club dance for Christmas and meet some new sophisticated and educated girls. Ivy asks what he says? He says no, he loves Kay and wont give up on her.
Meanwhile, Kay cries to her dad about her problems with Fox. Kay says she loves Fox so much and she cant lose him. Sam asks what happened, so she explains the whole story to him about taking the phone off the hook so Valerie couldnt get a hold of Fox. She says then a business crisis came up, and Valerie came to the house to get him, and he left with her. Sam asks if she thinks hes falling for Valerie? Kay says no, but she thought they were kissing and she made a huge fool of herself. Sam asks why she thought they were kissing. Kay says it was more like she imagined it, and shes blown it with Fox. Sam asks what Fox said. She said he was mad at first, but hes not now. Sam says so there is hope. She says no, she cant keep screwing up his life like this. She says she loves him so much, but all she does is cause him problems. She says that is why she has to break up with him. Sam tells her to listen, Fox doesnt care about Valerie, he cares about her. He says Fox is in the kitchen pouring his heart out to his mother, so he thinks she should go in there and work things out. Sam urges her to go tell him how she feels, she thinks Fox will forgive her. Sam thinks Fox will forgive her, and if they both want the same thing then what is to stop them? To herself, Kay thinks magic, unless Tabitha can come up with a counter spell.
Kay walks into the kitchen to see Fox. They look at one another and smile. Kay thinks Fox does love her, therefore Tabithas new spell must be working. Kay says hes so sorry, and Fox says so is he. They agree to talk things over. Suddenly the office calls and Fox takes it. Kay thinks Tabitha must not have gotten rid of the old spell, his career still comes first. She says it is over. Kay storms off, and Fox gets done with his call and asks where Kay is? Ivy says she left. Fox thought she wanted to talk things over, but he guesses he was wrong. Fox leaves to get a drink. Ivy tells Sam its too bad, but Sam wont give up on them. He wants to get them back together for Christmas. He asks Ivy to help, and she says of course shell help. Sam is positive theyll find a way to get them back together. To herself, Ivy says over her dead body.
Up at the cabin, outside the police are still arguing over what to do about finding two cars with slashed tires and a tracks from a heavy vehicle. One cops doesnt care out of fear of angering the Cranes, the other wants to investigate. The one cop calls the Crane mansion to let them know what is going on up here. The cop is told none of the Cranes are home, but Gwen is there. They recall she is the wife of the guy who was kidnapped. They speak with Gwen and ask her if she knows what is going on at the Crane Cabin?
Inside the cabin, Noah tells Fancy not to hit Theresa, but she thinks
someone should beat the hell out of Theresa. Theresa thought Fancy was
helping them, but Fancy says shes only giving Ethan a chance to live.
Noah says that is all he and Theresa want too. Fancy says but it is
still all Theresas fault. She tells Fancy that shell never forgive
Theresa for what she did to Ethan. She calls her a stupid bitch and
smacks her again! Noah says that is enough, but Fancy says maybe is
someone smacked the hell out of Theresa before then she wouldn't be the
way she is. Theresa says she feels horrible what happened to Ethan, but
it was an accident. Fancy says yeah, she was trying to kill her
grandfather. Theresa says she was out of her mind when she did that, and
Fancy agrees. Fancy thinks Theresa is a walking nightmare, and she
accuses her of playing God with peoples lives. Fancy says she decided
to kill one man and now shes trying to save another. Fancy asks
Theresa just who in the hell she thinks she is? Noah then notices the
cops are still out there, so Theresa goes to spend time with Ethan in
case they return. Fancy and Noah continue to argue about Theresa. Noah
tells Fancy that she claims she doesnt believe in Theresas talk
about destiny and fate, but she just helped keep Ethan and Theresa
together as Theresa claims they are destined to be. Fancy says there is
no fate or destiny and the only thing in Theresas future is a mug
shot. Noah say for whatever reason she did what she did, he is glad.
Fancy says Ethan is her brother, she loves him too much to give up on
him. Noah says he feels that way about her, he thinks their relationship
deserves a chance. Fancy refuses to forgive him for lying and kidnapping
Ethan as it was a crazy thing to do. Noah says he did it because Ethan
deserves another chance, so doesnt he? Fancy says just because she
thinks Ethan deserves a second chance, that doesnt mean she does.
Fancy says he lied to her, he didnt trust her enough to tell her what
he was doing. Noah says he does trust her, and he tried to call her.
However, he says Theresa thought she would have reacted how she did and
called the police. Fancy says if he loved and trusted her then he should
have told her and known she wouldnt have called the police. She says
he lied to her, she cant be in a relationship without trust. She says
they are through.
Meanwhile, Theresa sits with Ethan and tells him how Fancy just saved them. She doesnt know why Fancy did this, but she doesnt care. She says she loves him and will always love him. She says God wont take him from her, she knows he wont. She continues to beg Ethan to fight.
December 20, 2005
At the cabin, the one cop calls up Gwen to talk about what is going on at the cabin. He says that Fancy is here and is with Noah Bennett. He says that Fancy asked them to leave, but he thinks something is going on as there are tire tracks . . . . Gwen says she doesn't have time for this. She says her husband has been kidnapped and if Fancy asked them to go then go. She hangs up, and the cops think that settles that.
At the mansion, Gwen is with Rebecca. Rebecca is enjoying the new cook a little too much. Gwen tells her mother that they need to focus on finding Ethan. Two cops show up and they have the ambulance salesman with them. They think he can help, perhaps give them a lead. The man says the woman, Theresa, had a man friend helping her. He says he had a biblical like name. Rebecca begins naming off names off hunks she knows, Moses, Solomon . . . . Gwen asks Noah? The man says that is it. Gwen then realizes that Noah is at the cabin, and those cops just called about something fishy going on up there. Gwen says Theresa has Ethan at the cabin!
Back at the cabin, Noah realizes the cops have finally left. Suddenly the power goes out, and Theresa panics. She rushes into Ethan's room and begins breathing for him. Fancy can't believe Theresa. She says she really loves Ethan that much, and it is insane what she'll do for him. Noah says that is the power of true love, and he thinks that is why they deserve a chance too. Noah and Fancy rush out and get the generator started and Theresa hooks Ethan back up to his respirator. She sits with him and continues to wish him to come back. She once again prays to God and offers to give Ethan up if God will bring him back. Meanwhile, Noah continues to plead with Fancy for another chance. She however can't give him one as she can't trust him. Suddenly they hear sirens and realize they are busted. Gwen is in a cop car speeding towards the cabin!
Outside of Harmony, Edna and Norma are marching through the snow when they come upon a sleigh. They decide to steal it. In the slay are some elf costumes, and Norma makes Edna put one on. Suddenly Santa shows up and yells at them that they can't steal his sleigh. Norma realizes this Santa is an imposter. He tells her that she's nuts, there is no such thing as Santa. This sends Norma off. She says there is a Santa! She attacks the guy and steals his clothes, leaving her Betty Davis costume on him. He says he's calling the cops. Edna says they can't let him do that, so Edna attacks him and knocks him out. As they are about to leave, Santa's elves show up and say they won't get away with attacking Santa. They charge after Edna and Norma.
At Tabitha's, Kay gets a call from her dad about coming over to trim the tree. She tells Tabitha where she's going. This upsets the boys in the basement. Kay suddenly realizes they can't stand Christmas cheer, and perhaps that can break the spell! After she leaves, Tabitha turns on the TV and sees a news report that Norma has escaped. Tabitha can't believe this and tells Endora that they have to leave town. She thinks they should go to Paris, so Endora magically packs a bag for them.
At the Bennett's, Sam gets an idea to help the kids back together, decorating for Christmas. He calls Kay up and asks her to come over and help. He then asks Ivy to talk to her, he's taking Fox tree shopping and will talk to him. They leave, and Kay shows up. She asks Ivy what is going on. Ivy says her dad and Fox went tree shopping, and they need to talk. Kay tells Ivy if she's going to talk to her about giving up on Fox then forget it. Ivy says no, she wants to see her dead! Ivy then strangles Kay with the Christmas Tree lights. Of course it's all a fantasy. Ivy talks to Kay about how she wants what is best for Fox. She says Kay was in love with Miguel for a long time, what if he came back and decided he wanted to be with her? Can Kay honestly say that she wouldn't be tempted? Kay says that is a non issue, and she has moved on and loves Fox.
At the tree lot, Fox and Sam are shopping. Sam finds a good tree, but Fox says it has a big bare spot. Sam says this isn't for the Crane mansion, and that side will face the wall. Sam also has a talk with Fox about what is going on with Kay. HE tells Fox that perhaps Kay is freaking out because he works so much. Fox says he knows, and he doesn't know where this drive to work came from. HE says he didn't think he had it in him, all he ever cared about was partying. Sam knows, he broke up some of those parties. Sam says Kay has a right to worry about ending up with a workaholic. Fox says he guesses.
Back at the Bennett's, Fox and Sam return with the tree. Kay and Fox see one another and decide to talk. Sam tells Ivy that he did all he could, and hopefully they have helped them get back together.

At the Bennett's, Fox and Kay are decorating the tree together. Sam tells Ivy that having them decorate the tree was a stroke of genius, they are really getting along. Ivy unfortunately agrees. Sam leaves to get some eggnog, and Ivy swoops in between Fox and Kay. She begins instructing them on where to hang things. Kay knows how to do this, her mom taught her well. Ivy says well her mom isn't here, and Kay says they know why. Sam brings out the eggnog, which they say has a kick. Kay never had it with alcohol, her mom made it without booze for the kids. Kay is missing her mom and she wishes she was here as Maria really needs a grandmother. Later, Tabitha, the kids, Sheridan and Chris show up. Sheridan invites them all to go to the tree lighting, and Sam thinks it is a wonderful idea. Kay asks Tabitha that this normally isn't her thing.

Gwen tells Theresa to open up, but Theresa refuses to allow Gwen to kill Ethan. Theresa tells Gwen if she tries to take Ethan it will be the last thing she ever does. Meanwhile, Noah begs the cops not to arrest Fancy for her part, she showed up and wasn't part of the kidnapping. Fancy says it's okay, she'll take her punishment. Gwen can't believe the two of them, especially Fancy. They say they just wanted Ethan to have a chance. Gwen says this isn't what she wants, but it is what Ethan wants. Theresa is eventually apprehended, and as she's being arrested she and Gwen yell at one another. Gwen tells her how selfish she is and how she's not thinking about what Ethan wants.
