Crane Mansion/Sheridan's Cottage:
Julian is in his study on the speakerphone with Alistair, who is examining pottery with a magnifying class. They're discussing not liking Luis living with Sheridan, but Julian assures Alistair that he cleaned the cabin out of any incriminating evidence years ago. At the cottage, Luis is examining the bullet. It's an old bullet from a handgun. Sheridan wants to know how a bullet got their in the first place, and Luis says that she hasn't lived their forever -- she was away from Harmony for most of her life, so she couldn't possibly know everything to ever happen in the cabin. But Luis knows where he can find the answers. Julian continues to have trouble with his vision, trying to read a book without reading glasses while talking to Alistair. Luis and Sheridan come in, and before Luis can say anything, Alistair congratulates him for looking after Sheridan so well, and reminds Luis that he met him once when he was a young child. Julian asks Luis why they barged in, and Luis holds up the bullet, and asks how the bullet got in the walls of the cottage. On the other end of the phone, Alistair crushes the vase he was holding in his hand. Luis wants to know who fired the gun, and at who. Alistair wraps up his bloodied hand in a handkerchief, and tells him has no idea why the bullet was there. Julian says there's no way to know how long it was there, and Luis says the lab can find out. He then suggests that the bullet was fired right around the time that Martin disappeared. Alistair says the two are probably unconnected unless Martin was into target practice inside the house, and Luis says his father hated guns and violence. If the Cranes won't help him, he'll do it himself. Alistair says the Cranes would be more than happy to help him. Luis wants to know if Julian keeps a gun in the house. Alistair says of course not, but Sheridan reminds Julian of a gun he always kept in a drawer of his desk. Sheridan points out the drawer that Julian 'always' kept his gun in. He slides open the drawer, and we see a pack of playing cards, a few business papers, a handgun, and the Luis mask. Luis asks to see the drawer, and Alistair demurs. Julian says his business papers are too important. Alistair again thanks Luis, who assures him Sheridan will not be harmed under his watch.
When they leave, Julian tells Alistair that the gun is still in his desk, with the Luis mask. The camera closes-in on an old scar on Alistair's hand while Alistair reams Julian out about keeping the mask. Julian says it could be useful again. Alistair lets the matter drop, and asks Julian how he missed the bullet. Julian told him he had swept the cottage clean after 'the incident,' and tells him they're finished if Luis learns the truth. Alistair tells Julian that Luis won't let it go until he learns the truth -- Luis is smarter than Julian, and with prolonged exposure to the estate, could learn anything. Alistair says the clue to saving themselves is to prey on Sheridan's desperation to be loved -- find her a man to obsess over, and she and Luis will be separated. Back in the cabin, Luis is trying to figure out where the bullet was fired from. Obviously it didn't come through the window. Luis is convinced that if his father wasn't the intended victim, someone in his family was. He doesn't think his father would have just taken off without a word. At Sheridan's questioning, he admits that he thinks either Alistair or Julian pulled the trigger. Sheridan tells Luis she will help him find what happened to his father, but Luis says her safety is his first priority. Julian knocks on the door, and comes in telling Sheridan she has to be at the Seascape restaurant tonight for the Crane's Annual Fourth of July Gala. Sheridan seems pretty happy to be going to the Seascape to get away from Luis, but Luis says she can't go. In the house, Alistair has apparently been waiting for Julian to come back. He tells Julian that if this plan doesn't work, they'll just have to kill Luis. Julian looks very worried. Sheridan tells Luis she IS going to the Seascape, but Luis says no way.
Crane Mansion Living Room:
In the living room, Theresa is giving Ethan the 'it's fate' look again. Gwen, completely unawares, is gushing about how every girl must go to their high-school prom, and how she just knows Ethan and her will have a wonderful time. Ethan keeps trying to butt in, but between Theresa's joy and Gwen's eagerness to help their friend, he can't get a word in edgewise! Gwen tells Ethan he HAS to take Theresa to prom. She was so excited when she told her, and Gwen can't think of any reason why Ethan WOULDN'T want to spend time with Theresa. Listening in the background, Pilar hears Ethan tell Gwen that he already made arrangements for one of the young lawyers in his firm (apparently he no longer works for the Hotchkiss family) to take her. Gwen isn't sure. She wants to make sure that Theresa has a great time, and isn't sure if the other guy will be good for her. Ethan assures her that the other ladies in the office all have crushes on him. Gwen is flipping through a magazine, while Ethan learns that Theresa's blind date has been called out of town by a client. Gwen looks like the cat who ate the canary.

Lopez Fitzgerald House:
At home, Theresa picks up her prom dress, and holds it up against her. With a dreamy look on her face, she begins fantasizing that tonight, at the prom, Ethan will apologize for not realizing earlier how much he loved her and wanted to marry her, and proposes to her. She's saying "yes, yes Ethan yes," when Pilar comes in and wants to know what her 'mi hija' is saying yes too, and then has to tell Theresa that Ethan is not coming to get her. Theresa says that Pilar is just trying to make her feel bad. Pilar tells her that she overheard Ethan say he had made arrangements with a lawyer from his office to take her to the prom. Theresa denies it, but Pilar assures her that Ethan says the lawyer was nice, and the girls like him. Theresa says she is going with Ethan. When Pilar tells her that Ethan said he would rather spend the evening with Gwen, Theresa says that now she knows her mother is lying, because Ethan would never say that. He wants to be with her, so he will. Theresa comes into the living room and twirls around, showing Pilar a dress. She looks exactly like she did in her fantasy. Pilar asks Theresa to give the young man a chance, but Theresa again says that she knows it will be Ethan. After all, it was Pilar who told Theresa that fate would rule her life. Pilar apologized for messing up Theresa's life. She goes to get the door, and (surprise, surprise) it's Ethan! Theresa again gives him 'the look.' Theresa grabs her shawl and says they have to get going. Theresa tells Pilar she plans on telling Ethan tonight that she loves him, and Ethan promise to have her home early.

Ivy comes from behind, and snidely asks Eve how many more mother/daughter moments they'll have when Eve is revealed 'to be the ex-slut that [she is].' Whitney opens the door to find Chad dressed in the shirt and pants of a tuxedo -- he's getting ready to DJ at the prom. She asks what he's doing, and he pretends to misunderstand the question by telling her that he needs to be dressed appropriately for black tie. Whitney wants to know how Chad can possibly go to the prom when he almost died a few days ago, and Chad says he's fine. Plus, he can't afford to stay any longer. Whitney tells him not to worry -- her parents will pay for it. He says no way, and what could have been a nasty argument is diverted when she ties his bow tie for him so he'll look 'halfway decent' at the prom. Eve tells Ivy to leave her alone. She's already helped her. Ivy says that's not good enough. She needs to know where Sam is tonight, so she can get Sam back in her bed. Ivy flashes Eve's mugshot, and tells Eve she has no know where Sam is. Eve reminds Ivy that she HAD her chance, and Ivy tells Eve that as soon as Sam remembers what things were like between them, he'll leave Grace for her. Eve wants to know what's different now, and Ivy flashes back to her mental conversation on the boat about Ethan being Sam's child. She tells Eve that tonight could be the night she uses it. Eve tells Ivy that Sam will see through her newest plan, but Ivy is adamant.
Whitney and Chad come out of his room, and Eve wants to know what Chad's doing out of bed (in a nice tux, no less). Eve assures Chad that she and TC will pay, but Chad says no again -- he has to DJ the prom. Whitney walks Chad to the elevator, and Ivy comments that they're a charming couple...unless Chad's her son. Eve tells her once again that her son died, but Ivy says she'll just have to take Eve's word for it that Chad isn't Julian's firstborn. Eve finally breaks and admits that their chaperoning at prom. Ivy flashes back to a special prom she and Sam had, because they couldn't go to the Harmony high prom. (Funny, since she went to boarding school and they first met after they graduated.) Ivy thanks Eve for the information, and says she'll use tonight to relive her prom with Sam. Whitney comes back and asks Eve what's with Ivy, and Eve suggests that she help Whitney get ready from prom. Suddenly, Eve decides that she wants to chaperone with Sam and Grace. Whitney thinks it would be a great idea. Whitney asks Eve about her prom, and Eve flashes back to when she and Julian were teens, entwined on a bed.
While Tabitha looks on, Grace pricks her finger on Charity's pendant. Sam and Hank come in to make sure she's okay, but Hank heads off to answer the door with a 'the faces look familiar, but I don't think we've met.' Miguel and Reese head into the living room, and Kay and Simone come down. Reese and Miguel present their dates with special prom bracelets. Kay sends Reese off, and she again tells Simone that by the end of the night, Miguel will be hers. On the other side of the room, Tabitha echoes the sentiment. Sam can't get Charity's pendant off either. Tabitha lays a guilt trip on Charity, who says she loves the pendant. Miguel (of course) agrees. Sam tells Kay she looks gorgeous, and Reese says he plans to dance every dance with her. Jessica comes down the stairs, and Hank greets his grade nine niece with a resounding "Babe alert!" Sam tries to take a photograph of Tabitha, and despite her protestations, snaps it anyway. Timmy says their busted -- witches don't show up in photographs! The kids are exclaiming over the photo of Tabitha, while the adults try to figure out why Timmy showed up, but Tabitha didn't. Tabitha says she has no idea how it happened, and Sam figures there's a fluke with the camera. Kay comments again on what a geek is, and Tabitha tells Timmy they have to put Reese on their ten most wanted list. Grace asks Hank who Sam went to the prom with, and Sam says that he couldn't find a date. He swears he was a no show, and tells her he can't even remember who his girlfriend was back then. Luckily Hank, who couldn't have been more than three or four when Sam graduated, tells Grace that he remembers that Sam was really psyched about who he was going with, but didn't tell his baby brother who he was going with. Kay says she and Simone have to make sure Charity is doused by fishguts, and the two agree that if Chad goes to prom, it's because he wants to be with Simone. Jessica asks Charity to talk, and Charity assures her that she's thinking positive, and that she hasn't had any more visions. Timmy thinks Charity is very brave. Tabitha says darkness will win...darkness always wins.
The kids head off into the kitchen for a snack, and Grace tells them not to eat too much -- she's sure they'll have food at the prom. Ivy rings the doorbell, claiming some pretext of looking for knickknacks. She manipulates Grace into talking about the prom. Ivy says she was there with her first true love. Grace says she wishes she could remember her prom (if she even had a prom), and admits that Sam says he can't remember his prom. Playing the 'lonely socialite wife' card (and reminding Grace that she's on the school board), Ivy manages to get herself a chaperone invite. Half-teasing, she tells Grace she may even manage to steal Sam away...for a dance. The kids admire Ivy's powder-blue convertible outside the Bennett house -- the same one that Sam's flashback shows Ivy and Sam doing...something fun in on their prom night. All the kids think it's absolutely tops -- she says she hasn't driven it in years. Sam wants to know what Ivy's up to, and she tells him to just wait and see.
The Harmony High Prom:
Whitney comes into the prom (looking fabulous), and Chad goes over the moment he sees her to compliment her on her appearance. He's rather surprised to see Eve there. Eve, of course, misses the significant looks between Whitney and Chad. Kay and Simone come in, and Simone is thrilled to see Chad there. Kay is distracted by Miguel's entry. He's there with Jessica and Charity. Jessica assures the two that they will win for prom king and queen, and Charity says she just wants everyone to have fun and get home safely. Miguel asks if she still has visions about prom. A look up at the silver ball prompts the same old prom vision...complete with Charity in a silver dress, totally different from the dark one she is currently wearing. Ivy hurries in and comments on Charity's unusual pendant. She picks it up to examine it, and remarks that it made her fingers cold...like electricity just forcing through her. Tabitha is elated to see that the pendant is working properly, and that it will make people take risks they normally wouldn't. She says she'll have to keep a close eye on Ivy and Sam tonight, and everyone else...the prom boat will really be rocking tonight. Out of view, Ivy says tonight is the night she will tell Sam they have a son.
