While trapped, Theresa breaks into song; Fancy gives Noah the full court press; Esme sets her sights on Ethan, much to Viki's ire and Pilar and Theresa escape!
Paloma and Luis sit in the Book Café discussing Fancy's bizarre behavior. Luis says it's like someone flipped a switch because she's a completely different person. Paloma is surprised to hear how crazy Fancy is acting, but Luis says he's seen it with his own eyes. The conversation turns to Paloma and she tells her brother about the double wedding with Miguel and Kay. Luis is thrilled for her and Paloma says she used to be worried that Noah still had feelings for Fancy, but now she knows he would never cheat on her.
On the wharf, Pretty turns up the controller making Fancy throw herself at Noah. Noah tries to fight off her advances, but Fancy won't take no for an answer. Noah wants to know what's going on with her because she's not acting like herself, but Fancy just tells him that she will do anything to pleasure him. Pretty continues to turn up the device and Fancy asks Noah to go somewhere private with her and kisses his neck. Noah says, "God give me strength," and breaks away from Fancy. He tries to walk away saying he won't betray Paloma, but Fancy kisses him again. Pretty wishes that Luis could see this and calls him.
Paloma and Luis come to the wharf after Pretty calls saying she saw Fancy acting out. As they walk around looking for Fancy, they see her kissing Noah. Paloma yells at Noah for kissing Fancy and runs off. Noah goes after her, as Luis demands answers from Fancy. Since she's back to normal, Fancy doesn't know what happened. Pretty goes to turn up the juice on the controller, but drops it and can't find it. Luis continues to yell at Fancy and Pretty finds the controller and turns up the device, making Fancy suddenly kiss Luis. Luis doesn't know what to make of her behavior and Fancy says, "Noah's gone, but you're here and you're hot!" Pretty thinks that Fancy's behavior will disgust Luis more than her scar ever could. Pretty then turns the controls so it makes Fancy angry and lash out at Luis. After yelling at him, Fancy storms off and Pretty thinks that she will take Luis for herself and leave Fancy with nothing.
Noah catches up with Paloma and explains that he was trying to get away from Fancy. Paloma doesn't buy his story and tells him that she never wants to see him again.
In the Crane living room, Ethan and Esme tell Viki that they are drawing up papers so Esme can adopt her and Viki's all for it. Ethan gets a call and hoping it's about Theresa, he walks away to answer it. Esme leers at him while he talks on the phone and lists his positive physical attributes to Viki. Viki thinks that Ethan has to die. Esme tells her niece that she was considering a relationship with Julian for his money, but now that Theresa is out of the picture, she thinks Ethan would make a great husband and stepfather to Viki. Viki imagines that Ethan and Esme decide to get married and Ethan tells her that they are sending her to boarding school in Switzerland. Viki thinks that she will kill Ethan before she lets him take Esme away from her. Ethan comes back and says there's been no word on Theresa. Esme offers to take him to dinner to express her gratitude for helping her adopt Viki. Ethan declines and Esme says she doesn't blame him since all her dates end up dead, but that maybe Ethan is strong enough to break the curse and points out all the times he has been poisoned and lived. She tells him she wants to show him how grateful and limber she is.
Gwen and Rebecca enter the foyer and discuss Theresa. They wonder if she's gone to Mexico to try and make peace with Juanita so that she can finally tell Ethan about Little E. Gwen thinks even Theresa isn't dumb enough to do that, but then asks, "Is she?" Gwen says she would never want to put Pilar's family in real danger and if Juanita knew where they were there would be a blood bath. Rebecca looks in the living room and sees Esme coming on to Ethan. She tells her daughter she should do something, but Gwen thinks she's being ridiculous because Esme is not interested in Ethan.
Gwen and Rebecca walk in the living room and Rebecca makes some inappropriate remarks about Viki being a mute. Viki heads upstairs to bed and Rebecca says she thinks Viki is a little strange. Gwen tells her mother that Viki is babysitting Jonathan now and Rebecca thinks that's a movie of the week waiting to happen. Rebecca gets between Ethan and Esme when she sees them sitting close to each other. She brings up Theresa and tells Ethan that he deserves a woman who doesn't lie or cheat and Esme thinks to herself that she could be that woman. Meanwhile, Viki lurks in the hallway with a knife and vows to not let Ethan take Esme away from her.
Ethan, Esme, Gwen and Rebecca go into the foyer and Esme again thanks Ethan for his help. Ethan goes back to the desk in the living room to grab some papers. Viki walks behind a curtain that is set up for the room to be repainted and stabs someone through it saying, "Have a nice dirt nap Ethan!"
Trapped at Juanita's place, Pilar sleeps on the couch and Theresa laments the situation she's gotten them into. Theresa suddenly bursts into a love song set to a montage of her and Ethan's relationship. After Theresa's ballad, Pilar wakes up and they talk about Juanita. Pilar insists Juanita wasn't always like this, but things changed after that fateful night. They discuss how Carlos raped Pilar and how Juanita's family died and Pilar says their whole family is in danger now because of what happened all those years ago. Pilar thinks that Luis should have received the fax telling him about the situation by now, but over at the hotel it's sitting in the trash can while more paper is thrown on top of it. Theresa is just happy that all their loved ones are safe in Harmony, but Pilar says Juanita could find a clue to their whereabouts and that no one in their family is safe. They talk about Ethan and Pilar tells her not to give up hope that she will get back to him. Pilar again thinks that Luis should have gotten the letter by now, but Theresa thinks it's hopeless. Pilar and Theresa wonder if there's a way out of there and Pilar thinks the code to the eclectic trap is today's date, which is the day her husband and children died. Pilar makes the sign of the cross and punches in the code. It works and they run out of the house, but someone seemingly follows them.
