Esme tells Fox about Viki, Luis drags Fancy away, Ethan lies dying as someone else is shot to death, Spike goes after Vincent.
At the mansion, Esme stretches out in Fox's arms as they finish watching a movie. They glance over at her sleeping niece Viki (she is only pretending to sleep and, in fact, listens to everything). He asks Esme why her niece always whispers in her ear rather than speaking directly to people. Esme explains that she and her niece are very much alike...unfortunately she hasn't seen much of her because she's estranged from Viki's mother (she pushed her out a window some time ago). She explains that Viki's father is a rich man and... before she can say anymore, she tells him that he can't tell a soul what she's going to tell him because Viki doesn't even know. After they get some scotch and ice cream, she explains that Viki's father lost all of the family money before killing himself...and Viki's mother. Esme begins crying in his arms. Now she has lost a sister and has a child she unable to take care of her. Fox tells her that she's doing a great job; she's a regular Auntie Mame. She puts a blanket on Viki and Fox puts his arm around her. He wonders how she can handle all of this. She tells him that she was close to her sister once but... things change. Something bad happened between them, something much worse than what happened between Fancy and Pretty. She blames herself for her sister's death...she doesn't want to talk about this anymore. Fox picks up the sleeping Viki and carries her to bed as Esme follows them upstairs.
Vincent waits for Spike by the water. He soon appears, wearing sunglasses at night. Vincent assures him that this fashion statement doesn't make him look like a movie star. Spike is annoyed with his frequent partner in crime: How could he have known that Alistair was alive all this time and never said anything? He only does what he's told, Vincent insists. Spike pulls out a list that Alistair gave him of people who they have to kill. Vincent's been having second thoughts about all of this. He always thought that Alistair had his best interests at heart but since his grandfather tried to kill him, he has his doubts. Spike tells him that Alistair tends to save the worst for his own family. As he's about to open the envelope, Vincent grabs him into a kiss. Spike fights him off; he doesn't do that, at least, not for free. With this rejection, Vincent starts crying but Spike tells him he has to turn his frown upside down so they can get to work. He looks at the list and asks Vincent for a gun. Once he hands it over, Spike levels the gun on him. 'Surprise! You're the first name on the list,' Spike sneers. Vincent begs and asks him if this is a joke. Spike starts to laugh and then shoves the list in his face. Vincent is sure that his grandfather loves him and wouldn't do this. 'Oh father! Thank god!' Vincent blurts out. When Spike turns around, Vincent runs off. Spike chases him around the docks before finding him whimpering in a corner and begging his invisible grandfather not to kill him.
Gwen is pacing in the halls of the inn. Rebecca offers her daughter an eclair but Gwen refuses to eat or drink anything that Alistair may have had contact with. Rebecca sadly drops the possibly poisoned pastry and tells her daughter that she should start planning her future with Ethan. Meanwhile, Alistair begins choking Theresa while they stand over Ethan's body. Soon, Chad and Whitney run in. Chad jumps his father and wrestles him away. As Alistair fights him off, Theresa tries to send Whitney off for the police. Pulling out a gun, Alistair stops her and promises them that they'll all be dead soon. When Gwen and Rebecca walk in, they're shocked to see Ethan sprawled out on the bed. Chad refuses to stand by and let Ethan die. As he picks up the phone, Alistair reminds him that he will shoot him. Theresa and Gwen begin blaming each other for all of this and demanding that someone call 911. Alistair tells them it's pointless: They are all going to die; he's come back to clean up his mistakes. Chad tries to wrestle the gun away, unable to imagine his father would actually shoot him. He does. 'But I'm your son,' Chad says as he drops to the floor bleeding. 'You're no son of mine,' he says. Everyone in his family has disappointed him and they're all going to die. He turns to Theresa, leveling the gun in her face. 'Our marriage was forged in Hell so you're going to be very comfortable down there,' he says. Suddenly, a pair of security guards run in with their guns drawn. Alistair shoots at them before jumping out the window and running. As he escapes, Whitney tries to stop Chad's bleeding but it's too late. 'I love you...only you,' he says before his eyes roll back. He's dead. As she cries over him, Theresa screams at Gwen to get away from Ethan.
Luis chases Fancy through the Crane grounds. He catches up with her and tells her again that he refuses to leave her. She tells him that she'll destroy his life. That doesn't make any sense to him so she lists all of the cursed relationships that the Crane's have had. She runs into the night and he follows her. When she thinks she's finally alone, someone runs out of the dark and grabs her, running off with her thrown over their shoulders. As she screams, the man puts her down. It's Luis and he kisses her, vowing to take her away, against her will if he has to, and convince her that there is no Crane curse. When she says no, he throws her over his shoulder again and strolls away. He takes he to a bedroom and tells her that she needs to stop being an idiot. 'I love you,' he says, putting his arms around her and slowly kissing her neck. Eventually she returns his 'I love yous'. As they fall into the bed, Alistair appears in the window. Luis took Sheridan from him and now Fancy. 'You cross me once: You die, you cross me twice: You die in agony,' he growls.
