Don't let my mom die!
In her rom at the mansion, Pretty is modelling her phoney baby bump in front of the mirror. Luis and Fancy are running through the halls searching for her, worried that the baby might have been hurt in the earthquake. As he starts to pound on her door, she starts to panic inside. As she hurries back into her pregnancy outfit, Luis panics at the delay and smashes the door open. Unfortunately, Pretty manages to be back in her outfit by the time he gets through. Suddenly, news comes over the radio that Sheridan was pushed over Niagara Falls. Fancy and Luis are shocked; Pretty wishes it had been her idea. Right now Sheridan is in the hospital and the engaged couple want to hurry over to check on her. They also want to drag Pretty over to get checked out. She protests but to no avail.
At the hospital, Sam is arresting Julian for Alistair's murder. Eve doesn't want him to be punished for a crime that she tried to commit. Esme and Viki suddenly walk through the door. A worried Esme wonders if Alistair is really dead. Although Julian tells her that he killed him himself, she wonders if they should drive a stake through the old man's heart just to be sure. Ivy is repulsed, but Esme is thrilled. All of a sudden, Sam gets a call from the station. To everyone's surprise, he promptly uncuffs Julian and informs them that the gun Julian used was actually full of blanks. Everyone's confused... except for Viki. She flashes back to sneaking in and shooting Alistair at exactly the same moment that Julian opened fire. Using his policeman's brain, Sam assumes that this murder must be connected to the murders of all the other men that Esme has had her way with. Esme worries and wants guards. Sam tells her there aren't enough cops. Butting in, Ivy suggests that they send Viki away to boarding school to protect her. Inside, Viki is furious at this suggestion. Ivy continues to make the case as Viki stares daggers at her. Esme starts to think that boarding school sounds like a good idea and Ivy worries about who could die next. From the look on Viki's face, it may be her.
Back at the mansion, Ethan does his best to revive Gertrude after she was crushed by the falling bookcase. As he performs CPR, Little Ethan blurt out: "Don't let my mom die!" Ethan and Gwen are perplexed. Pilar nudges the boy to keep mum. Gertrude starts coming back to life. Once she's breathing, Ethan asks the boy what he meant by his outburst. Pilar tries covering for him, insisting that he's just been traumatized by losing his mother and Gertrude has been taking her place. Ethan starts calling for an ambulance but the phone lines are dead. Pilar begins praying that her daughter will get better. Ethan is disoriented by all of this, even more than usual. He starts flashing back and forth between Gertrude saying that she was connected to Theresa and him making love to Theresa. He stares at Gertrude, giving Gwen a grimace and the creeps. They both know that something strange is going on. While he tries calling 911, Pilar notices that her daughter's wig has come loose. Panicking, she tries to hide this and slip it back on before anyone can notice. She manages to do so just in time. Theresa opens her eyes as Ethan kneels by her side. He thanks her for saving the boy. It's what any woman would do, she says. Gwen rolls her eyes; she's had enough of this nanny. As Ethan stares at the nanny, he continues to flashback to Theresa for reasons he can't understand.
When Ethan and Gwen go upstairs to bed, she continues mocking Gertrude. He's still bewildered by why Little Ethan called her "mom: and is glad that the boy wasn't sent away. It seems like he needs a lot of attention right now. Gwen turns this around, telling him it's time to get rid of Gertrude. She thinks it's obvious that the nanny is too involved with the children - it borders on obsession and disturbs her. Ethan refuses to get rid of her, insisting that she is a good person but he'll try to keep her from undermining Gwen in the future.
Ethan walks down the hall to Gertrude's room. Looking in, he finds her asleep and sits on her bed. Looking down at her, he wonders what it is about her that draws him in. As he kisses her lips, she opens her eyes. "Ethan," she says, before instantly going back into character and trying to cover.
When Ethan and Little E head down to have milkshakes, Pilar
asks Gwen if she's satisfied Theresa's dead. Gwen is, though she again insists
she saw her. Pilar again says the vision was just a sign of her guilty
conscience and Gwen again wonders how she's still losing fights to Theresa and
when she will ever be free of her. "Never," Gert-resa promises silently.
Juanita and her henchman pull over at a bookstore. This is the address they traced Pilar's call to. When they go inside, they can hear the news on the radio about the earthquake that's hit Harmony. The cashier worries aloud about Pilar. Juanita's ears perk up. She asks the woman about this Pilar. The woman continues to worry and tries calling her friend, leaving a voicemail. Juanita assumes that she's on the right track and whips out her gun. Threatening, she demands that the woman answer her questions. She refuses. Juanita's henchman searches the store discovering that Pilar's phone was hooked up there before. When the woman still refuses to help, Juanita is outraged and knocks the woman out. They continue to search for more evidence and wait for Pilar to call the woman back.
Back at the mansion, Pilar drifts downstairs and notices that her friend called her. Although she has an eerie feeling, she returns the call. Juanita answers. "Are you prepared to die?" he fiendishly asks.

You Always have to Believe!
the manse, Ethan leans over Gert-resa as if to kiss her. "What are you
doing?" he asks himself, but plants the kiss anyway. "Ethan," she whispers,
before jumping back into character to ask what he's doing kissing her. He
admits he's kissed her and apologizes. She says it's alright, but he gets in
a thither over his inappropriate behavior. He calms down to explain that
during the CPR, "there was a certain familiarity" about the feel of her
lips. She empathizes that he's been under a lot of stress lately, adding
that people do strange things when they're grieving. He remembers how
Theresa always made his heart beat faster. "No one has ever made me feel
that way… until you came along. If I didn't know better, I would just think
you were Theresa in disguise," he sighs, clearly still unaware that's
exactly the case. She's glad to help him get through this and doesn't want
his apologies. He thanks her for saving Little E, so she coos about how
wonderful Little E is. Ethan agrees they're close, and wonders if it's
because he delivered the kid or maybe just because he loved Theresa so much.
Gert-resa is sure Theresa is watching over Ethan, happy for how well her
kids are being cared for. When Ethan can't imagine when his "feeling of
desolation" will go away, Gert-resa is moved by his love for Theresa. She's
wishes she could tell him everything after Ethan admits, "I've had fantasies
that [Little E] was my son with Theresa." When she says it's the most
beautiful love story she's heard, he counters that Theresa's death was
horrible. She hides her face as she finds the words. "She's very lucky she
had you," she says, but he talks of the "something" that kept them apart.
"Not something, someone," she thinks to herself. Then Ethan reveals losing
Theresa has stolen his purpose in life and challenged his faith in heaven,
let alone God. "You always have to believe," she insists, adding that love
is eternal and Theresa is waiting for him. He's impressed with her fire,
which is just like Theresa's. His spirits lift more as he talks of Theresa's
kids. She takes his hand and begs him not to doubt himself. "You're a good
man," she says. He again thanks her and apologizes for the kiss. When he
excuses himself to find Gwen, she thanks him for the CPR and they hug it
is dying to talk to her mom, who shows up in a Wonder Woman costume. Beccs
explains she was having a sex party with Pablo, who was the Incredible Hulk
to her Wonder Woman. "I thought the Hulk was making the earth move," she
recalls, but that turned out to be the earthquake, which sent her stud
muffin running scared. When she complains about having to walk home in her
boots, Gwen demands she hush up and listen to her troubles with Ethan. Beccs
shrugs her daughter will get the hang of it after a few more husbands, but
Gwen wants Ethan and is nervous that he seems to be picking Gert-resa over
her. "That is absurd," her mother counters, noting only dead Theresa could
steal Ethan's heart from her. When Gwen tells her about her
dream/hallucination of Theresa in bed with Ethan, her mother loses her
patience. Gwen brings the convo back to Ethan's vibe with Gert-resa,
grimacing that, "The way he was giving her CPR, it was almost like he was
making love to her!" When she admits she had a fantasy Ethan slept with
Gert-resa, her mom really think she's off her rocker. Then Gwen gets a call,
which completely changes her mood. While Beccs goes to take a ride on the
stable boy, she sets out to find Ethan, dying to share some big news.
Instead, she finds him in Gert-resa's arms! "I know exactly what's going on
here," she says, with a roll of the eyes. She figures that after Ethan gave
Gert-resa a talking to about behaving properly and not stepping on Gwen's
toes, she was upset and needed a hug. To Ethan's relief, Gert-resa lets that
slide. Then Gwen starts to gush about her big news: there's an opening for
their vow renewal ceremony! Gert-resa drops her glass in surprise.
goes to check on her patients, a new mom and baby, only to find Valerie
sitting there with "her" son, wanting to register the birth of the newest
Crane baby. When Eve asks if Valerie is the one who shot Alistair, she's
sorry she can't say yes. She was out of town, tasking care of business. When
Ivy shows up, she congratulates Valerie on having Julian's latest - and
likely last - child. Then she tells them about Sheridan's accident.
"Sheridan survived?" Valerie asks, sounding more annoyed than surprised.
After Ivy leaves, Valerie spits, "Vincent failed! He's the one who pushed
Aunt Bitch over the falls." Horrified Eve grumbles that she is Vincent, but
Valerie continues talking about him in third person. "I swear, if you want
something done right, you have to do it yourself," Valerie decides. Eve
demands an explanation and is shocked when Valerie reveals Vincent wants to
be the new Sheridan.
is thrilled Ivy can help get Viki into boarding school right away and thus
protect her from the killer. Needless to say, Viki is not thrilled! As Ivy
calls in a few favors, Viki thinks, "I already killed Alistair tonight.
You're next." Ivy chances only get worse as she explains the school she
found is isolated on Lake Superior, with harsh weather, and that Julian may
let her take the Crane jet as soon as today. As Ivy raves to Esme about the
top notch security at the place, Viki sneaks over to a med cart and takes a
vial and syringe. When Esme pushes her to thank Ivy for her help, Viki says
she doesn't want to go. Esme promises she can return as soon as Sam catches
the killer and sets off to make some calls, leaving her with unsuspecting
Ivy. Lucky for Ivy, Esme returns just before Viki takes a stab at her. Esme
admits she doesn't want Esme to go either, so Ivy tells her she can send
care packages, but warns no gifts from the pharmacy. Esme goes off again,
leaving Viki to take another stab. This time, her injection makes it mark
and Ivy goes down!
After Luis sends (a suddenly much more) pregnant Pretty
off with nurse for a checkup, he spots Sheridan being wheeled in. He and
Fancy follow to learn she survived being thrown down Niagara Falls in a
barrel. Then Pretty shows up and flinches at the smell. "Algae," explains
Fancy. Pretty then whines that with the hospital so packed, she's going to
leave, but Luis again insists on taking her to get their baby checked. She
thinks she has him trumped when she reminds him Sheridan will want him there
when she wakes, but then Sam and Fancy promise to stay with Sheridan for
him. As they leave, she insists she's not a timid bulb, but he grabs a
doctor and gets her right in with him. When Luis follows, Pretty stops him
from coming: It's not proper, considering he's engaged to her sister. She
sends him to check on Sheridan and then tells the doc they need to have a
talk. Lifting her shirt to show him her fake baby bump, she says, "Looks
just like me, doesn't it?" She offers him some cash in exchange for a good
report on her "mythical baby." He milks her for a bit more money, and then
agrees to do her bidding.
seems to be coming to, but doesn't answer or open her eyes when the chief
asks who did this to her. When Luis enters, Sam hopes his voice will do the
trick. He leans over her and puts a hand to her head. She moans his name, so
he asks who hurt her, but then she's out again. Luis is sure she'll come
back, while Fancy is worried his feelings for her already are. "I'm here,"
he tells Sheridan, promising to punish the perpetrator. Then he goes to
check on Pretty, who says all is well and the report are being delivered to
the manse. "That is a load off my mind," he says, returning to Sheridan's
bedside. She comes to again, but this time she struggles to wake up.
Finally, what's happened comes back and she recalls who did it. "Vincent, he
said he'd just had a baby," she puts together, which just confuses the
Pilar asks Juanita why she's answered her friend
Carmelita's phone. "Did you think I would never find you?" Juanita asks,
cooing that she's near. "Carmelita's about to take a short swim in deep
water. For her sake, I hope she doesn't wake up before she drowns." When she
reminds Pilar of her vow to kill everyone around her, Pilar asks, "Don't you
fear for your soul?" Juanita isn't interested in her "saintly lectures" and
cackles that she's coming for Pilar's sons and grandchildren. Spooked, Pilar
hangs up, intent on getting the family together to go on the run.

Lots of Things can Kill you, Mija
paces the manse living room, gearing up to a panic over Juanita, who is just
up the coast at her friend's bookshop. "We have to run," she decides. "This
entire family has to disappear!" When Gert-resa, Ethan and a bubbly Gwen
enter, Pilar barely has the patience to hear what she has to say, which is
that she and Ethan have a date set to renew their vows. Gert-resa mutters to
her mom that the renewal will kill her, but Pilar only warns, "Lots of
things can kill you, mija." Gert-resa explains that once Ethan takes his
vows, he will never break them again. Pilar can't imagine why Ethan would
tell her this, so she reveals they've had some heart to hearts of late.
"He's drawn to me," she shrugs and then has a fantasy about living her life
without Ethan. An old, battered Theresa sits by the fire when a
distinguished Gwen and Ethan come downstairs. Old Ethan wonders why he keep
her around instead of sending her to a home, but Gwen says to be kind and
says having her around reminds her of what she almost lost. Theresa needs a
contraption to hear, but Ethan doesn't need a little blue pill to go all
night. She flashes back to now and tells Pilar she must fess up to Ethan.
She finally admits that Ethan loves Gwen too, but "It's not the kind of love
we have" and she doesn't want it to become that! Pilar can't imagine it
will, but Gert-resa is stuck on imagining her life without Ethan. This time
Old Gwen is raving about the kids coming for a visit, which excited Theresa,
so Old Ethan mutter that perhaps they should ditch Theresa since the kids
don't like her. Then the couple starts making out like kids. "I won't let
that happen," Gert-resa insists.
Gwen continues to gush, noting how folks will stop talking and pointing at
them once they're official reunited. She wants to find a good love poem, but
he says "nothing mushy," reminding her they're still married. She also wants
to invite his old fraternity buddies, but he warns that will devolve their
special day into a drunken extreme Frisbee tournament and insists he's happy
with whatever she plans. They toast to "riding off into the sunset together"
and then Gwen starts the guest list. Ethan steps aside to ask Pilar how she
feels about the ceremony. She won't deny she feels it's too soon, which
makes him suggest to Gwen that they wait. Gert-resa suggests they wait a
year or so, so Gwen reminds her again to stay in her place. Gwen reveals
that they're just joining the double wedding already planned and "if it's
not too soon for Theresa's brother and sister to get married, it's certainly
okay for us." Ethan agrees theoretically, but wants Pilar's okay first.
"Just say the word, and it's postponed," he says. Gert-resa is horrified
when her mother congratulates him and tells him to find happiness with Gwen.
Even Gwen is confused. "Theresa would never stand in the way of your
happiness," she tells Ethan and gives her blessing. While a thrilled Gwen
gets Ethan to talk guest list, Gert-resa asks her mother how she could
betray her. She insists Ethan was looking for a way out and can't believe
her mother didn't give him one. Pilar explains Juanita called her cell phone
and is closing in on them. Gert-resa wonders if Juanita lied about
Carmelita, but Pilar insists the entire family must go on the run, including
Little E, Jane, Maria and Marty. Gert-resa doesn't think that's a solution
and suggests they count on the FBI and DEA to protect them and find her, but
Pilar knows it's time to run.
Gwen wants to invite her girlfriend Bitsy Leland and
after they discuss her many marriages, Ethan reflects on how odd it was to
get Pilar's blessing. "I'm not a fool here," he says, referencing the
tension between Pilar and Gwen of late. He doesn't want to hurt Pilar, but
Gwen wonders if he's trying to find a way out of the ceremony, and why he
cares what Pilar thinks. Then she accuses him of running hot and cold, so he
backtracks and again says he was just curious about Pilar's change of
attitude. Gwen shrugs that Pilar must have realized that her grandkids need
a strong family and tells him to let Theresa go. Then they tell the ladies
they're going to get more champagne. Pilar sees this as their opportunity to
make a get away, but Gert-resa says they'll think Gertie kidnapped the kids
and refuses to run. Pilar demands she do as she says, but Gert-resa can't
imagine her brothers or Paloma will agree to the plan. What more, she'd
rather die than walk away from Ethan. "What about the children?" Pilar
demands, but before she can answer, Ethan and Gwen return. Ethan toasts his
upcoming marriage and a happy life for them all.
anxious Juanita and her henchman can't find any clues to Pilar's location at
the bookstore. She plots that she wants to find out everything about Pilar's
life, "so I can tear it down in the most excruciating way." She curses
having killed Pilar's friend Carmelita before learning Pilar's whereabouts,
but then realizes Carmelita's private quarters may be the place to look. She
sends her henchman upstairs to search and paces until he returns.
Ironically, she finds a book called "Finding Harmony", but there's nothing
in the box her henchman brings downstairs… except a photo of Luis in his
Harmony PD uniform! "I found the key to making Pilar suffer," she says,
planning to kill the kids one by one in front of Pilar.
the hospital, Esme listens in as Sam and Luis question Eve and Julian about
Vincent. They pretend they know nothing, so Sam informs them Sheridan has
pointed the finger at Vincent for throwing her over Niagara Falls. Julian
laughs it off, but when Luis pushes, Eve cries, "It's a miracle… our son may
be alive!" Julian follows suit and they pretend to gush together, while he
pulls her aside to tell her they're in trouble. Julian asks them to be sure
and Eve says she loved him, no matter what he did. "Including rape, arson,
serial murder?" Luis asks, but Eve just wants to know how he could have
survived. Sam reminds Eve's that only recently she'd sworn her son was
alive, but she just blames the booze and drugs, insisting she's clean now.
Sam asks them to give an on the record answer and starts his tape recorder.
He again asks if they knew Vincent was still alive. After some stalling,
they give statements that Vincent is dead and they don't believe Sheridan.
"Lord knows when you think of Sheridan, you don't also think of stability,"
he chuckles. Luis chimes in to say Sheridan was sure of herself, so Eve
leans in to tell the tape recorder she's treated Sheridan as a psychiatrist
and says she's "prone to flights of fancy." Then she again asks how Vincent
can be alive, which Sam intends on finding out. He and Luis head back to
talk to Sheridan and after Esme asks why she moved back home where even the
dead can kill, she goes to search for Viki, leaving the couple to freak out
over what to do next about their out of control son. Then Eve tells him
Valerie is there to get the baby registered and was not involved in
Alistair's death, but that Vincent wants to kill Sheridan and become her.
"He wants to be my sister now, as well?" Julian gasps, asking what happened
to him not killing folks anymore. Eve counters it's just Vincent's parents
who are safe now.
When Luis and Sam return, they report Sheridan is
sleeping and unavailable for questioning. The couple is relieved and again
talk about how crazy Sheridan is, which Luis doesn't like. "People come back
from the dead all the time," he shrugs. "I've done it, as has Julian," but
Julian insists they're wasting their time at the hospital and suggests they
go out and find the real culprit - probably the same baddy who maimed Little
course, that would be Viki, who is struggling to drag or push her newest
victim, Ivy, out of the way, not knowing that Valerie is watching with
pleasure. Viki mutters that it's Ivy's fault for trying to separate her from
Esme, "like all of the others" she's killed. After she has her newest victim
shoved behind the door, she dumps her purse, revealing her gun. An impressed
Valerie surmises "cool as a cucumber" Viki is the one behind all the recent
murders. Then Ivy's body falls out, just as Esme calls for her. "The killing
is the easy part," Valerie thinks, anxious to see how Viki handles herself
now. Viki manages to hide the body just as her aunty arrives. Esme assumes
her niece was searching for drugs, which makes Viki say she wishes Esme
would cut back on the pills. "I worry about you," she says, but Esme insists
her prescriptions are prescribed by docs. After Viki notes some of those
docs are in prison, Esme redirects the convo. With a killer on the loose,
she wants to keep an eye on Viki until she leaves for boarding school. When
the duo walks away, Valerie comes out of hiding
and tells her baby she can use Viki's talents. Then she follows Viki and
Esme to Eve, Julian, Sam and Luis and introduces everyone to her new baby
with Julian. Sam suddenly realizes Ivy is missing. Viki "hopes" nothing bad
has happened, while Esme says she doesn't know where Ivy went after helping
with them out with a boarding school. The group splits up, until Julian
spots blood. Sam follows the trail to the stuck door and calls for Ivy. He
finally pulls it open and Ivy falls out. Eve rushes to check her pulse,
while Sam begs her to help and asks if Ivy is alright. Eve's silence says
everything. "No, she can't be dead!" Sam begs.
