The publisher receives a call from New York City, and she tells them about Tabitha and the fact that she thinks Tabitha has a dual personality. After the call is finished, she decides she definitely wants to interview Tabithas friends in the basement. As Tabitha is leading her towards the basement door, Grace Bennett is coming to Tabithas front door. The publisher tells Tabitha she really dropped the hammer on her as there are so many things she is finding out about Tabitha. She knows the money from the sale of the book is going to pour in. Sitting in the chair close to the door, Timmy daydreams about all the money pouring in, when he opens the front door! Grace knocks on the door. Tabitha is out of sorts and thinks Grace's timing is great. Grace has brought a fresh batch of Christmas cookies over for Tabitha. The publisher asks if she is Grace Bennett, the wife of Sam Bennett, and then asks her what she thinks about Sam and Ivy Crane. Grace is confused. The publisher is going to read the section in the book about Sam and Ivy, but Tabitha grabs her book. Grace questions Tabitha about the book and Tabitha tells her it is just a bunch of notes she has kept over the years. Grace wonders if Sam is in the book because he is a local hero, and Tabitha agrees with that. Grace is going to have to wait until the book comes out, to read what Tabitha has written about her husband. Suddenly, the friends in the basement make a noise, and Grace thinks it is Tabithas pipes that are acting up once again. Grace offers to look at the piper for Tabitha but she yells NO! Tabitha says she will take care of them and Grace is surprised that Tabitha is a do it your selfer! Grace tells the publisher how Sam would fix the piper for Tabitha in a moment if her were here, but he is on a case. Grace tells Tabitha about the premonition she had earlier about evil being close by. She was worried about Tabitha so that is why she came over, to check up on her. She invites Tabitha and her doll Timmy to spend Christmas Eve at the Bennett house. Tabitha tries to back out of it, but Grace will not hear of it. Grace then leaves for home. Having seen everything that has been going on, the publisher thinks it is times to leave. She is scared that Tabitha is really evil. She grabs the book from Tabitha, and tells Tabitha she will soon be a star. Tabitha replies that she is afraid of that. When the publisher is gone, Timmy is singing a song. He's got big martimmys in his hand, instead of the whole world in his hands. He also has a big fat check in his hands.

Ethan finds Sam is not working fast enough so he calls for the Crane helicopter to be ready in five minutes. Sam and Luis tell Ethan to back off because if Roger and Pierre hear a helicopter, they will kill Eve, Hank and Freeman. On the boat, Eve is calling for Chad. Roger tells her Chad is probably dead like Sheridan Crane. Hank, Eve and Freeman are hand cuffed to the rail of the boat. Roger and Pierre tell them they are waiting for the tide to turn so they can throw all of them over board. Roger is pleased, as he knows Hank's plan did not work and since Hank did not tell Luis about Sheridans fake death, not even Luis can save Sheridan. They finally got what they wanted. At the graveyard, workers are beginning to fill Sheridans grave with dirt. The concrete that Julian had poured over her coffin has hardened. No one will ever get to Sheridan now. Sheridans grave is sealed forever. Luis wants desperately to get Roger and Pierre if it is the last thing he ever does. Sam is afraid that it might just be the last thing Luis ever does if he does not use a cool head. Ethan is getting restless again and wants to go on his own boat. Sam tells him he is not going on his own boat or going with them. He is going to have to stay back and let them do their job. Ethan decides he will do as he is told. Sam is saying they have to be extremely careful, as they will probably be out numbered and out gunned when they get to the boat. Hanks asks Roger and Pierre to let Eve go. She has children, a husband and is a well respected Doctor in the community. Freeman tells Hank not to blame himself for the blotched operation. They took a chance and they lost their gamble. Eve knows she will never see TC or her daughters again. She beings to panic. She wonders how Sheridan will spend her final moments. She knows Sheridan will start having fantasies and then she will think she is very happy and it will all be over. In fact, Sheridan is having a fantasy. She is with Luis and her children on a picnic. She tells Luis she has never been happier. Hank tells Freeman and Eve he is not going out without a fight. He wants Eve to grab the lifesaver and swim as hard as she can when they are thrown over board. Roger tells them the tide has turned. Ethan is arguing with Luis as they are preparing to leave in their boat. Sam tells them to get in the boat. Theresa is worried and wants to stop Ethan from going with Sam and the others. Pilar prays the men will be safe. In her fantasy, Sheridan asks Luis and Ethan to be friends. Sheridan wants to see the two men embrace like brothers. She wants Luis to do that one final thing for her. They do embrace, and Sheridan knows she can now die in peace. In her coffin, Sheridan thinks this has really happened. Pierre unlocks Hank, Freeman and Eve. Roger holds a gun on them. They are going to tie them down with weights, so they will sink. Hank and Freeman grab Roger and Pierre and a fight starts. Eve goes for the lifesaver. TC wants Eve to return to him safely. He pledges he will kill the bastards with his own hands if they hurt Eve. On their way to the boat, each man is remembering something. Sam remembers Grace giving him the Christmas cookies before he left. Ethan remembers kissing Theresa, while Luis daydreams he comes home to Sheridan after he was finished in Washington. Luis calls out Sheridans name and Ethan looks over at him. In her fantasy, Sheridan says good-bye to her two children. She asks Ethan to be Luis friend. She says good-bye to Ethan as she does to Luis. She walks into the bright light and she disappears. Luis and Ethan stop rowing and they pull up along side the boat. Ethan wants to ask Luis to give Theresa a message for him should he not make it. Luis says he will do no such thing and Sam tells them to stop and be quiet. Sam assumes they will be outnumbered so before they board the boat, he tells everyone to be extra careful. The captain grabs Eve and tells Hank and Freeman to stop the fight or he will shoot her. Roger is mad and tells Freeman and Hank they will pay for this. Roger tells them this was a mistake. Hank and Freeman are going to have to watch Eve die first. They start to tie the weights to Eve. Sam is on board the boat as is TC. As Luis climbs on board, he says he is doing this for Sheridan. Sheridan is walking in a white gown in the light. Hank tells Roger he will be a marked man. Roger and Pierre are trying to throw Eve over board. Theresa calls out for her mother. She tells Pilar she feels something terrible is about to happen to Ethan. She remembers telling Ethan she loves him. Sheridan is walking into the light. Luis calls for her but she tells him he can't come with her. Grace arrives on the wharf and she tells Pilar she could not stay away. She feels terrible that the Crane family has been torn apart by Sheridans death and hopes nothing will happen to Ethan. Theresa is scared and she is praying. She asks God to keep Ethan safe. She will do anything, even give up her love for him, if God will keep him safe. The captain almost discovers Ethan climbing up the side of the ship. Had it not been for Roger calling out to him, he would have found Ethan. Sam, TC, Luis and Ethan run for Roger and Pierre just as they throw Eve over board. A fight breaks out. TC jumps in the ocean after Eve. A worker on the boat has drawn a gun but he can't shoot at any one as people are going every where! Sheridan walks towards the light, after she says good-bye to Luis. She tells Luis to look for her in his heart, as she will always be there.

Julian has received a Christmas present and he is put out, as the delivery boy seemed to have wanted a tip. Ivy said the delivery boy must be new, as he doesn't know Scrooge lives at the mansion! Julian wants to open the present but Ivy tells him it is for Ethan. Julian does not care and he opens it any way. Inside, he finds plans for a big home. Plans for a house for Ethan and Gwen.

Julian drops the new decoration, and it falls to the floor smashing into hundreds of pieces. Julian asks Pilar if she has been drinking. He has never heard of such trash. Sheridan is dead and buried. Julian is angry. There is no way Sheridan could have been buried alive. Ivy wonders if this could be true. Julian refuses to listen and puts on more Christmas music. Ivy tells him he is one hell of a guy. Julian replies that if Sheridan is alive, he will put a present under the tree for her. Rebecca tells Julian it could be helpful if Sheridan were alive. Ethan would be so happy to see her and he would never go against his aunt's wishes. Ethan and Gwen are sure to be married then. Ivy asks Pilar if she really thinks Sheridan is alive.

The Crane Mansion:
Julian is sitting on his bed, calling out for Rebecca to return so he can have more of her plumb pudding! Pilar walks by; thinking Rebecca is in Julians room with him. Julian opens the door, thinking it is Rebecca and is embarrassed that it is only Pilar. Pilar wonders what on earth Rebecca is up to. Ivy is in the bathtub and she is day dreaming of Sam. He comes to her, and she tells Sam he is all she has ever wanted. Sam loved her once and Ivy wants him to love her again. Ivy keeps dreaming and wishes that her dream of Sam would come true. Little does Ivy know that Rebecca is in her bedroom, searching for something. Pilar enters Ivys room and calls out for her. Rebecca hides. Pilar asks Ivy if she has seen Rebecca, as she is worried Rebecca is looking for and could find things that only Ivy and Pilar know about concerning Sam. Rebecca can hear the two women talking and she says she all ready knows Ivys secret. Julian is now looking for Rebecca. He is boarded all alone in his bed. Ivy finds Rebecca in her room and demands to know what she is doing. Rebecca tells Ivy she is worried about her and wanted to know if she could do any thing to help. Ivy knows this is a pack of lies. Ivy also knows that Rebecca has slept with her husband. Rebecca finds it very strange that Ivy is not mad at her. Ivy explains if it wasn't Rebecca Julian slept with, it would have been one of the maids. Julian enters the bedroom wanting to know if any one wants to share a nightcap with him... Ivy finds Julian appalling since he is not grieving for Sheridan. Julian thinks it is horrid that he has buried his sister once, and is now going to have to turn around and bury her again. He has never in his life heard of anything so ridiculous as burying someone alive. Julian asks Rebecca if he can talk to her, and then two of them leave Ivys bedroom. He asks Rebecca what she was doing in Ivys bedroom. Rebecca tells him she was searching for something and when Julian asks if Ivy knows that they slept together Rebecca tells him yes. Julian is crushed that Ivy is not mad that Rebecca has slept with him. Rebecca tells him Ivy did not give a damn. Ivy is scared that Rebecca may have seen the picture of Sam and Ethan in her locket. Julian hands Rebecca a drink. Rebecca asks Julian what would he do if she gained her freedom from her husband and if she managed to get Ivy free of Julian? Julian answers that Rebecca would then become the next Mrs. Crane if she could accomplish that. Ivy tells Pilar that the locket has not been tampered with. Rebecca has not figured out how to open it. Pilar is very worried that Rebecca will not stop at anything to uncover Ivys secret. When that happens, Ivy will loose every thing she has worked so hard for.
Grace has found Sam and Hank. She asks who is responsible for burring Sheridan Crane alive? TC asks Eve how she is doing, and she tells him she is not doing very well. TC wants her to go home and get some sleep, but Eve can't sleep while Sheridan is in a coma. Eve is upset. She tells TC she has lost Chad. Eve thinks Roger and Pierre killed Chad. Chad hears Doctor Russell's voice and calls out to her. Eve is overwhelmed to find Chad alive. She runs to Chad, crying with joy. Whitney walks in and sees her mother hugging Chad and crying tears of joy. Luis, Theresa, Ethan and Gwen are waiting for news about Sheridan. A Doctor tells them that Sheridan has lapsed into a coma, and they need permission to keep Sheridan alive on a respirator. Grace is distressed to learn that Hank is the one who is responsible for what has happened to Sheridan. Sam rakes his brother over the coals. He tells Hank he is the same screw up he has always been, always looking for a score. This time, Hank even tried to con Sam on his own turf. Roger and Pierre had something on Hank, and they blackmailed him into killing Sheridan. Sam asks him what the hell is going on in that head of his? Hank admits to Grace that every thing Sam said is true. Eve thought Chad was dead. She thinks it is a miracle that he is still alive. Eve tells TC that Chad took a bullet for her. TC calls Chad a hero. The woman from the trauma unit tells Ethan that the issue has to be raised about Sheridans wishes as she is in a severe coma. Luis tells everyone that Sheridan is going to live but the trauma worker says someone is going to have to make the decision for Sheridan. Ethan drew up a living will for Sheridan. It was Sheridans wishes that should any thing ever happen to her, she did not want to be kept alive by machines. Luis grabs Ethan and tells him, Sheridan has to be kept alive and if it is by a machine then so be it. Sam tells Grace he was so sure Hank had changed. Risking Hank's life by putting his life in the hands of an innocent woman is unforgivable. Sam is not going to put up with his brother any more and tells Hank they are through. They are no longer brothers. Eve apologizes to Chad for all the things she thought of him in the past. She feels so badly for everything she has put Chad through. Chad tells Eve to put all of that behind them. Truly sorry, Eve is crying. She tells Chad she was afraid of him because she thought he was different, but Chad tells her they have a lot more in common than she thinks. Eve tells him she owes him her life. Chad asks her just to help him find out who his mother is. Eve tells him she will help him with that but she feels she owes him so much more. Luis does not want Ethan to let Sheridan die. He will do anything to keep her alive. He will fly in the best doctors from Europe if he has to, but he does not want Sheridan to die. Gwen yells at Luis to stop, as does Theresa. Ethan remembered Sheridan and him drawing up the living will. Sheridan did not want to put Ethan in any kind of circumstance where he would have to make critical decisions for her. The Doctor returns and both men ask her how Sheridan is doing. The Doctor tells them she does not have good news. Grace asks Sam to forgive Hank. Sam tells her he is not going to forgive him this time as he has done so many times in the past. Sam is not going to take any more chances with his former brother. Hank has tears in his eyes as he listens to Sam. Eve tells Chad she will treat him as an equal from now on. She also tells him her daughters are so lucky to have him in their lives. Eve feels he is a fine young man and she tells Whitney she was all wrong about Chad. If Whitney does not want to keep her distance from Chad, she will not object. The Doctor tells Ethan and Luis they are going to have to wait for the results of the MRI to see if Sheridan will be able to breath on her own. She will let them know, as necessary arrangements are going to have to be made. Ethan tells the trauma worker there is a copy of Sheridans living will in the hospital. Sheridans wishes were not to be kept alive by machines. Grace begs Sam not to disown his brother, but Sam tells Hank he is no longer allowed to go near his family or his children. Sam leaves to check in with police headquarters. Grace encourages Hank to go after Sam. A confused Ethan asks Gwen if it would be wrong to go against Sheridans wishes. Ethan believes it is a Christmas miracle that Sheridan was really not killed. Gwen tells Ethan they will get through this rough time together. Theresa walks in while Ethan and Gwen are embracing. She tells them the Doctor has returned with the test results. Alone with Sheridan, Luis is telling her he wants to bring her back. He will do anything to bring her back here with him. He kisses her on the forehead. Hank tells Grace he has no right to ask Sam for his forgiveness. He wonders what would happen if someone would ever threaten the girls because of him. He is going to pack up all his things and leave Harmony. Whitney and Chad really appreciate what Eve said, and they will not let any thing stand in the way of their "friendship." Whitney tells Chad she always does what her mother asks. Chad is elated. The nurse enters, bringing Chad's jacket and tells him to get dressed. He is being realized. She asks Chad if Whitney is his girlfriend. He replies she is not his girlfriend "yet"! The Doctor tells Ethan and the others, that the MRI shows the chances of recovery are very slim for Sheridan. The only thing that will keep her alive is the respirator. The Doctor asks Ethan what his decision is; whether to keep Sheridan alive or let her die. Ethan is torn, but Gwen tells him he has to respect Sheridans wishes. Luis pleads with Ethan not to pull the plug on the respirator. Ethan tells the Doctor to take Sheridan off the respirator. Luis yells out no and a shuffle begins between Luis and Ethan. An orderly tries to break the two men apart. Hank tells Grace that everything Sam said about him was true. Hank broke their father's heart over and over again. Hank always looked up to Sam and Sam has always been his hero. Hank is crying and admits he has screwed up worse than ever. Grace tells Hank she is sure Sam will forgive him. Hank said he would not put Sam through any thing like that again. Sam returns and admits he heard everything Hank said. He tells Hank to remember in spite of everything they will always be family. Hank and Sam hug. They admit they love each other. Hank is crying. Whitney helps Chad with his coat. She does not want him to be in too much pain and certainly wants him to have a Merry Christmas. Eve sees Whitney and Chad together. She tells TC she hopes she was right telling Whitney she will not longer stand in the way any longer where Chad is concerned. She sees Whitney and Chad kiss, and she has a smile on her face. Gwen says good bye to her friend Sheridan. She seeks comfort from Ethan. Theresa and the orderly are holding Luis. Ethan tells Sheridan he knows she is finally at peace but if it were up to him he would leave her on the respirator forever. He kisses her on the forehead. He looks at the plug. Luis is desperate. He begs Ethan not to kill Sheridan. Ethan begs God for forgiveness as he pulls the plug. Luis is screaming like a mad man. Sheridan flat lines. She is gone.

Rebecca confides to an astonished Gwen her suspicion that Ethan is not a Crane at all but the police commissioner's illegitimate son. Meanwhile, Theresa is heartbroken when Luis refuses to give his blessing to her proposed union with the heir to the Crane fortune. Ivy raises her voice in protest as Alistair reminds Julian that his grandson must not be allowed to marry the housekeeper's daughter. A disappointed Sheridan gently scolds Luis for hardening his heart against her family once again. Rebecca informs Gwen that they can have their cake and eat it too after they walk both Julian and Ethan down the proverbial aisle. Theresa trembles when Ethan begins to wonder if he made the right move by asking her to wed a man of whom her family so disapproves. Ivy agrees to help Alistair break up Luis and Sheridan provided that no one attempts to tear Theresa and Ethan apart. Later, Alistair privately assures Julian that he's going to double-cross Ivy the very first chance he gets.
