In his Texas motel room, Rex sees Gigi's reflection in the bathroom mirror. He turns but no one's there. He takes a call from Aubrey, promising to be home in time to celebrate the holidays, then joins Shane. He finishes his call with Neela and leaves with Rex.


Down the hall in their room, Gigi admits how confused she's become since arriving in Texas. She wants to go back to the Bon Jour Café one more time before leaving town. Cutter objects. When the manager appears to inform that Cutter's credit card is no good, Gigi rushes off.


Everyone prepares for the pie contest at the Bon Jour Cafe. Moe and Noelle reflect on admitting their feelings for each other and urge Viki to give Clint a chance. Viki would rather concentrate on winning the contest - for Gigi. Rex and Shane arrive and take a Team Gigi pin. Noelle tells Shane she's sure Gigi's watching over them today. Professor Del Fina arrives to judge the contest. Rex thinks he looks familiar. Noelle pulls him toward the pie. Del Fina asks which one of them is Gigi. Gigi's gone, but Noelle explains her pie is as sweet and tart as Gigi was. From outside the window, Gigi stares at those who loved her. Cutter appears and pulls Gigi away. Gigi doesn't want to upset those inside since they look so happy. After Del Fina takes a few pie samples, he deems the Gigi Morasco Pie the winner. Noelle gives Shane the award. Before Del Fina leaves, he gives Rex a book his father wrote and suggests that's why he appears familiar to Rex. Viki and Rex comment on how much the professor looks like Madame Delphina. Shane goes to the window but doesn't see anyone. He admits to Rex he had a weird feeling someone was out there.


At the airport, Rex looks at the book Del Fina gave him. Every page reads 'Don't Give Up'. There aren't enough open seats on the flight to Llanview, so Rex agrees to stay behind. Gigi and Cutter arrive in another area. After Cutter leaves to pay up at the motel, Del Fina sits next to Gigi, who thinks he looks familiar. Like Rex, she's subconsciously recalling Del Fina's father as the man who help her and Rex travel back through time. They talk, to which Del Fina shares his motto, "Don't ever give up." Later, Cutter returns and finds Gigi gone.


Rex returns to the Bon Jour Café and takes a seat. Gigi appears. Rex turns and sees her!


Back in Llanview, Natalie catches Clint up on her progress with Jessica at Llanfair. She gave Natalie advice about John. Natalie hasn't been able to reach him and leaves to track John down. Kim arrives soon after and asks if Clint's made a decision. He and Viki have bonded. He's been trying to make up his mind. Kim wants to help and kisses Clint. Viki appears and sees them.


In Todd's office, Jack makes it clear he's only working at The Sun because Todd's blackmailing him. Jack accuses Todd of stealing everything from Victor. Todd reminds Jack he's keeping him out of jail. Not just for the fire but for the Gigi Morasco debacle. Neela appears with the hidden recorder. After introductions, Todd urges them to order lunch and leaves. Neela wonders what changed. She thought Jack hated his father. He shares Todd's blackmail then they order some Indian food. After they eat, Jack kisses Neela. Jack feels different when he's with her. Over talk about the bad things Jack's done, he admits his upset isn't over getting caught. He doesn't know how to live with what he's done. Guilt overcomes Jack. He wants to tell Neela the truth and asks if he can trust her completely. The recorder sits in Neela's purse nearby.


Tea's surprised when John arrives at the hospital and offers to take her home. She asks about the case. John warns Tea about her stress levels and putting added pressure on him. Tea apologizes and questions John about Natalie. John admits Natalie was blowing him off. Tea reminds John Natalie's been trying to get a hold of him. She's reaching out to him. John doesn't see it that way. Talk turns back to the case. Tea can't wait for Todd to be behind bars for killing Victor. Todd appears to check on Tea and the baby. He wonders why Tea thinks he doesn't give a damn about her or the baby. John prevents Tea from explaining. After Todd leaves, Natalie appears. John says he's busy. Whatever Natalie has to say will have to wait. He wheels Tea away.
