In the kitchen at the mansion, Little Ethan asks Theresa when she will be marrying Ethan. She doesn't know how to respond. Ethan appears in the doorway and asks her the same question. Theresa takes him aside, refusing to discuss this in front of the children. Ethan says that she owes an explanation to her son, but Theresa thinks that none of them can understand. After saying that he will find out anyway, he breaks the news that Luis has been recaptured and made his job a lot harder. She sends little Ethan upstairs and Ethan starts arguing with her again and begging for information. Little Ethan returns with Jane, ready to go to school. Ethan takes the children to school and Theresa sits down, crying that her dream is slipping away.
Whitney is taking Jane to daycare with little Ethan. He talks about how much he wishes Ethan could live with him for good now. In her office, Theresa remembers her perfect night with Ethan. Suddenly, another message from the blackmailer comes in telling her to stay away from Ethan. Ethan walks in with a rose, pretending to be delivery man. He sits down on her desk and they start kissing. Whitney arrives with the children and Ethan eagerly greets them before little Ethan does a magic trick. Theresa takes Whitney aside and remarks that she can't accept that someone is still stopping her dream from coming true. Ethan offers to take the children to daycare. He tells Theresa that they're a great family and they belong together and then leaves with the children. Theresa beams as she closes the door. She's been waiting years for this. 'But the blackmailer wants you to marry Jared,' Whitney reminds her. They start to wonder if the blackmailer is gay or a woman. Theresa insists that she will find a way to help her brothers no matter what. She can't lose this chance at happiness. Whitney leaves and finds Chad in the hallway at Crane. The elevator opens and Vincent walks out, making a serious of double entendres before suggesting that they should have a double date. Whitney agrees and he walks away smiling. Chad isn't so perky.
Ethan is taking little Ethan and Jane to daycare when they run into the tabloid reporter. He’s just looking for Valerie, but, while he’s there, he decides to ask Ethan about his marriage breaking up. Little Ethan is surprised to hear this and Ethan sends him and Jane off to daycare. When they’re gone, Ethan grabs the reporter and threatens him. Chad seems them scuffling and runs over to break it up. After he talks Ethan down before he can get charged for assault, he offers to give the reporter something bigger so that he’ll leave him alone. ‘Do what you have to do,’ Ethan says before trudging off to Theresa. Chad then gets a call from his lover, but tells them that they’ve almost been caught too many times. He finally agrees to meet one last time and then hangs up.
Around the breakfast table, Ethan, little Ethan, Theresa and Jane finish their meal. Little Ethan has always wished that they could be a real family and now his wish has come true. She leaves Ethan with the children and runs into Whitney in the hall. Surprised to see her so happy, she asks her what happened. ‘My dreams came true,’ Theresa beams and tells her that Ethan and Jane have moved in. ‘Everything’s perfect,’ she smiles. ‘If everything is perfect, then why are you still wearing Jared’s engagement ring?’ Whitney asks. She doesn’t know, but it’s over with Jared and Gwen has left Ethan for real this time. She finally has a chance to make all her dreams come true. Whitney is worried: Every time that Theresa talks like this, something bad happens. They look into the kitchen to see Ethan playing with little Ethan. Whitney starts to wonder if Theresa is actually doing the right thing...maybe. While she tries to support Theresa’s enthusiasm, she always thought that this could only end in disaster. Ethan stops in to say that he has to take care of something urgent. She says how much she likes having him around. After Ethan leaves, Whitney reminds her again that she’s wearing Jared’s engagement ring. She needs to go the whole way if she’s going to do this; she has to take the ring off so that she can have an honest relationship like her and Chad. Reluctantly, Theresa pulls the ring off.
The jovial Noah and Paloma return and start decorating. Jessica is bored and wants to go outside but Noah panics. She says she'll be fine outside for ten minutes. She goes down to the waterfront while a series of perfect couples walk by depressing her. She sees a bar and goes in for a drink. Fox's actors appear and sit down to rehearse their lines. Half-drunk, Jessica comes out with a bottle in a bag and thinks that she hears Charity's voice. She turns the corner and is shocked to see the actress taking off her mask.
Little Ethan bounces into his mother's office with Theresa and Jared behind him. They talk about what a great time they had skating. Little Ethan hugs Jared and thanks him. "I promise that we will do this again," Jared says to Little Ethan. Theresa watches them both, beaming with happiness.
Little Ethan is at the laptop while Jared and Theresa sneak kisses. Whitney interrupts the happy threesome for a talk with Theresa. Jared takes Little Ethan to the Book Café so the women can be alone. After the boys leave, Theresa gushes about how well her favorite guys are getting along. "I can't see how anything could go wrong for us now."
Little Ethan is beating Jared at checkers. They are having a blast. It is cut short when Little Ethan's nanny appears. Before Jared leaves, Little Ethan asks, "Do you really like my mom?" Jared lets him in on a little secret. "I love your mommy." Little Ethan asks him if that means he is going to be his dad. First Jared wants to know if he would like that. When Little Ethan answers yes, Jared tells him he hopes so too.
Ethan is sitting in The Book Café talking on the phone to JT. He tells him that he has already called his friend at the IRS. Now JT has to deliver on his part of the deal. Ethan wants to know every detail he can find about Jared but he has to be discreet. No one is to know that Ethan is behind the investigation. Chad walks into the restaurant and hears Ethan badmouthing Jared again. "Who are you talking to about Jared?"
Ethan pretends that he is talking to Gwen and gets off the phone. Chad sees right through him. He knows it's killing Ethan watching Theresa with Jared but he needs to let her find love again. Ethan admits that he wants Theresa to be happy. Chad gets up to get something to eat. Ethan talks to himself. "I do want Theresa to be happy, just not with Jared. He is not the Mr. Nice guy that everybody thinks he is. And I am going to prove it."
When Chad returns, Ethan brings up Whitney. Chad tells Ethan not to ask. "You know I can't go on like this so I gave her ultimatum. Either we get married by Christmas or we are through." This makes Ethan recall their conversation about adultery. "Does Whitney have reason to be suspicious?"
Chad is resentful that Ethan would question his loyalty to Whitney. Ethan studies him and gives him a warning. It's hell losing the woman you love. Chad could lose Whitney for good and then where will he be. Can he imagine her with another man? Chad wonders if they are still talking about him. Their conversation is interrupted by a call on Chad's cellphone. Chad tells the caller he is on his way and leaves. Ethan ponders whether Chad knows what he is doing.
Ethan sees Little Ethan and his nanny at the restaurant. He stops by to talk. Little Ethan tells about all the fun that he had with Jared. Ethan offers to take Little Ethan on a play date real soon. Little Ethan shares a secret with Ethan. "I am going to have a new daddy." Ethan looks dumbstruck.
Jared, Theresa and Little Ethan continue to bond at the park. Little Ethan and Theresa talk a reluctant Jared into skating with them. He never learned how and is terrified to start now. Theresa and Little Ethan are happy to teach him how to skate. With a little coaxing from Theresa, he decides to give it a try.
Jared is very shaky on his skates but this is part of the fun. Everyone is having a great time. When they think Ethan isn't looking, the two steal a kiss. "Eeeww," Little Ethan caught them but they think his reaction is cute.
Theresa and Little Ethan laugh at Jared's attempts at skating. Little Ethan offers to give Jared more lessons but Jared has had enough. He doesn't like being so unsteady. Theresa tells him all he needs is to take a leap of faith. She offers her hand and he takes it. They skate off, holding hands.
Jared is finally getting the hang of it especially the part of learning from each other. Little Ethan suggest they do it again tomorrow. Jared smiles broadly.
Jared and Theresa are playing hooky together in the park. They have Little Ethan along, too, so they can share some time together. Little Ethan runs off to build a snowman, leaving Theresa alone with Jared.
Jared and Theresa decide not to do too much kissing in front of Little Ethan so as not to confuse him until they are sure their relationships "is a go." However, Jared thinks one little kiss will be okay. They start to kiss when Jared gets smacked in the back by a snowball from Little Ethan. Soon the three of them are having a ball, throwing snowballs at each other.
Little Ethan thanks Jared for keeping his mother's lips warm, making his mother blush. She suggests they get back to building a snowman.
After they finish building their snowman, they stand back to admire it. "We make a pretty good team, don't we." Theresa, Jared and Little Ethan share a group hug.
