In the Q study, Alan and Tracy continue their ghostly dialogue. She tells him that she did him a favor by altering his will because he left his money to the unborn children of Jason! She contends that Jason is a thug and gold diggers are his taste in women - just like his Uncle Alan. Just then, thunder booms and a bolt of lightening flashes and Alan smugly says, "I wish I could do that when I was alive." Tracy threatens to get some garlic and holy water if he won't leave. Alan says that he's a ghost, not a vampire. Alice has entered the room to announce that Jax has arrived to see her, and she and Jax have witnessed the entire (one-sided) conversation. Jax has come to the Q house for a meeting that Alan has called.
Skye arrives in the study followed by Dillon, Monica and Edward. Monica announces that she and Edward are contesting the validity of Alan's will. Jax speaks as Michael's trustee and says that Michael's interests are well served, so he has no problems with the will as it is. They all argue over whether or not to fight the will and Alan is contributing little barbs, only no one but Tracy hears them. Skye says that she might just question the will herself "if only to drag you hyenas to court." Alan proudly says, "That's my girl!" Everyone leaves, but Dillon hangs back in the doorway to hear his mother continue her argument with Alan. Finally, he says, "Mom, Uncle Alan is dead." Tracy tells her son that she knows her brother is dead. Then, as Dillon starts to sit in the chair, Tracy stops him. Dillon figures out that Tracy thinks Alan is sitting in the chair because she has a guilty conscience! Dillon says that if this gets out, she could lose her CEO title at ELQ.
At the Spencer home, Spinelli stands up and objects to Liz and Lucky's marriage - on behalf of Jason! He calls Jason "Jackal" and no one makes the connection. Jason tries to shut him up but the minister wants to hear what Spinelli has to say. He begins to ramble about their compatibility, comparing them to computers and Lulu pipes up, calling him her boyfriend and leading him from the room. Outside, she tells him to shut up! She doesn't plan on telling anyone about the baby and wants him to keep quiet, too. Around the corner, Maxie is eavesdropping on them. Lulu sees Maxie and the two begin to argue. Maxie tells her to stop the wedding if she really loves Lucky; Lulu says there is only one way the wedding will be stopped - when she pulls Maxie's hair out in chunks and the guests come out at her screams! Maxie walks away, but her words have Lulu worried. Back inside, Liz vows her undying love to Lucky. "I give myself, my body and my soul to you," she says. Lucky promises to be the best man, husband and father that he can be. Lulu and Spinelli return inside as Lucky and Liz kiss! As they take pictures, Nikolas tries to find out what is wrong with Lulu but she blows him off. Jason offers his congratulations to Liz and Lucky, who are surprised he came. Carly gives Liz a hug, whispering to Liz to stay away from Jason! Lucky gains the guests' attention when he proposes a toast to Liz, their family and their new baby. Lulu grabs Jason and asks him to meet her later as Lucky delivers a piece of cake to her. She approaches Liz, telling her that she wants her to make Lucky happy. Liz hugs her as Jason looks on. Luke toasts Liz and Lucky. "Love is a gamble, may you both come up winners," he says. Lucky asks Nikolas if he has spoken with Emily. He says no and walks away. They are called together for a family photo and Spinelli approaches Luke, saying his intentions toward Lulu are honorable. Tracy comes over, wondering what Spinelli has been smoking and Luke leaves them to congratulate the bride and groom. He and Tracy leave and as he exits the home, Luke talks to Laura, telling her he can feel her there. Liz and Lucky send Cameron home with his grandparents and get ready to spend their first night as husband and wife - again! - together. Lucky tries to kiss her but Liz turns away.
Tracy finds Luke bellied up to the bar on the Haunted Star. She tells him that she thinks he could use a friend because Lucky is getting married at Laura's house and Laura won't be there. Tracy offers to make a pot of coffee while he gets presentable. He says that she doesn't know how to make coffee and he doesn't want to kill his buzz. Luke says that when people want to pledge everlasting love and talk about happily ever after, he thinks they are setting themselves up to be shut down. And, he's not particularly happy to see his son go down that road again. "But, it ain't up to me." He says glumly. Tracy tells him that as long as Luke and Liz believe they are in love, they are invincible. Luke asks her if she would do him a favor and go to the wedding with him. "Grab my purse," she says.
Tracy goes rushing into the Q study to pour herself a stiff drink. Before she can take a sip, Alan's ghost starts to speak to her from the chair. She admits that she tampered with his will and as she talks to him, Luke comes in for a drink too. He tells her to stop talking to the furniture. Alan says that he's perfectly welcome to haunt his own house, and Tracy reminds him that it's Monica's house. "I gave it to her," Alan says for the millionth time. Then he admits that he has tried haunting his widow but she can't hear him. Just then, Edward and Monica come in to corner Tracy and tell her they are planning to protest the will. Tracy keeps talking to Alan with things like "Shut up!" and her comments only enrage the family more. Luke snuggles up to Spanky Buns and says that she wields power very beautifully (they snuggle nose to nose in a sexy way and Alan says he doesn't want to "go there"). Monica explains that she failed Alan in life, and she won't fail him in death. As Monica (and Edward) turns to leave, Alan thanks her for her loyalty, but only Tracy can hear it.
Luke and Tracy (and Alan) are still in the Q study when Alice announces that Sam McCall has arrived. She comes marching in and tells Tracy to back off! Tracy pushes Luke out of the room so she can deal with Sam alone. Sam tells Tracy that if she ever sends her a picture of Angela Monroe againï¿½Tracy says that somebody else must know her secret because she didn't do it. After Sam leaves, Alan asks Tracy what she's bribing Sam with. Luke hears Tracy yelling at the chair again so he comes in and tells her that he needs to get out of town if she's going to confess to altering the will. He shakily chugs a drink as Tracy continues to argue with "the chair."
Luke is in lock-up at the PCPD asking Tracy to post his bail. She says that she is his wife and she shouldn't have to put up with him getting into fights over Laura all the time. Alan's ghost is also in the room – unknown to Luke – badgering Tracy. He tells her to face the fact that she will always come in 2nd to Laura in Luke's mind. Tracy decides to cut the check anyway and as they are leaving, Bobbie shows up with Scott. She has talked him into dropping the charges. Scott taunts Luke right in front of Mac – that he'll take good care of Laura when Luke's locked up in Sing Sing. Mac tells them to behave.
"Shame Tracy…you should be ashamed of yourself," Alan chastises his sister while "sitting" in a chair in the Q study. Luke doesn't know who in the heck Spanky Buns is talking to. He curiously watches as his wife's has what looks to him like a one-sided conversation. Alan tells Tracy that he saw the whole fiasco at his will reading. Tracy can't believe her eyes, so Alan suggests that maybe he should put a white sheet over his head and go "wooo, wooo". Luke tells Tracy that she should go lie down and she does. After a while, she comes back into the study and pours herself a drink. Alan pops back into the chair and announces that he is "haunting" her. She tells him that he is faking his death, but he tells her that he can't get his "entry permit" to the afterlife until she admits that she has tampered with his will. Alice comes in and Tracy demands that the place be fumigated.
Edward doesn't think it's fair of Luke to throw his love for Laura into Tracy's face. Tracy tells her father that she appreciates his concern, but she has come to accept Luke's feelings. Edward asks them to put their stuff aside for today so they can read Alan's will in peace. After Edward leaves, Tracy asks Luke if can embarrass her any more? Luke thinks he should get credit for thinking on his feet! "Take it easy Buttercup, you'll get what you deserve," Luke tells her as he heads out to change the will.
The Q family is gathering in the study, including Luke, Jax and Scotty. Luke whispers in Spanky Buns' ear that everything is taken care of. No one can figure out why Jax and Scott have been invited to attend. Monica says that she's not in the mood for a scene, so let him stay.
The lawyer begins to read:
*A generous amount to the La Mesa Wellness Community for breast cancer research.
*Alice gets $75,000. (Jax rushes over to shake her hand.)
*Luke gets $250, 000 for putting up with Tracy. (Luke acts deeply touched.)
At this point, Ned wonders out loud if Alan was of sound mind when he last amended the will. The lawyer proceeds:
*There is to be an inheritance in trust for Michael Corinthos III, but since Alan didn't trust his parents, he named Jasper Jax as the trustee.
*Ned gets Alan's box seats at Wimbledon as long as he never shares them with Monica. (Ned and Monica had an affair many, many years ago, so this is a funny jab.)
*Dillon gets all of Alan's home movies because if anyone can edit them into something interesting, he can.
*Skye gets Lila's ruby earrings because she doesn’t need money now that she's with Lorenzo.
*Jason gets Alan's engraved signet ring even if he never wants to wear it. He can pass it on to own son. And since he is gainfully employed as a gangster he doesn't get any money either.
*Monica gets all of his personal goods since words would never express his love anyway.
*Edward is to receive Alan's medical diploma in hopes that it will finally fill him with pride.
*Emily will get Lila's diamond necklace and no money since she is to marry the Cassidine heir.
*And finally, Alan bequeaths the rest of his estate, valuable funds and ELQ stock to his sister Tracy.
The lawyer has finished reading the will and Edward declares that it is a fake! Monica agrees because Alan would have never cut Emily out of his will. Skye points out that Tracy made out pretty well. Dillon compliments his mother for a sneaky job well done. Tracy tries to divert the attention by saying that Alice could have had a hand in it. As they bicker, Emily demands that they respect her dad's wishes. She insists that he knew that she, Jason and Skye don't need money and Tracy has been wanted his respect all of her life. "Let it rest," she orders and leaves.
They all calm down, but Luke tells Monica at least she got to keep the house. As they leave the room, Edward and Monica tell Tracy that they can't believe she and Luke deprived Alan of his last wishes. On his way out, Ned says that he'll reserve judgment because he chooses to believe that his mother could never have done such a thing. Dillon says, "Good role model, mom" and splits. Luke and Tracy are finally alone. Luke pulls her into his arms and tells her she's a big winner "ELQ stock or not". Over his shoulder, Tracy's face looks like she sees a ghost. And, she does! Alan is grinning from ear to ear, telling her to be ashamed of herself.
