Meg visits Craig at The Lakeview and says he is no longer CEO of Montgomery Enterprises! He is stunned. They argue about the company and the medical research that Evan has been doing. Meg stands firm and says she wants Lucinda to have the company back! She says Lucinda deserves the company because Evan is a mad scientist and Craig is the one who hired him. Craig wonders who filled her mind with lies about Evan and then realizes it can only be Paul! Meg says regardless of who told her about Evan, Lucinda deserves the company. She says she wants her life back and that means she has to have distance from him and from Paul! Craig begs her to reconsider.

Paul is lurking around The Lakeview when Emily walks in. He asks where their investigation stands and Emily tells him about the hostage situation with Evan at the hospital! Over martinis, Emily says that his big plans to implicate Craig are about to blow up because it is clear that Evan isn't working on Craig's behalf - he is working on Lucinda's! Paul brings up his past with Em, saying she shouldn't judge anyone. She says he was only trying to manipulate Meg out of her business. She leaves. Paul calls Meg, who is still in Craig's room, and says Holden isn't a suspect any longer. She agrees to meet him in the lobby. Meg arrives and Paul tells her about Evan. Meg thanks him for giving her the news but insists she has to go. They leave as Craig gets off the elevator!

Inside Room 408, Evan tells Lucinda that the syringe has enough of the poison to kill Lily and Lucinda and Holden, too! Lucinda says he'll never get away with it. Holden yells in from the hall, saying they will let him leave as long as he lets Lily and Lucinda go. Evan says he'll let them go once he is out of the country. Lucinda yells out that Evan was behind everything. Margo says she won't negotiate! Chris walks up to Margo and Holden, demanding to know what is going on. They fill him in on Evan's craziness; Chris can't believe it and feels really bad. He convinces Margo to let him go in to talk to Evan. Inside, Chris asks Evan what he is trying to accomplish. Evan keeps talking about his important research and how he is going to save the world; Chris tells him to give up but Evan won't. He backs into a corner, grabs Lily and makes Chris leave. With Evan distracted watching the cops, Lily grabs a scalpel off the medicine cart in the room. Lucinda calls her pilot and asks him to get the jet ready. When Evan reaches for the phone Lily attacks with the scalpel but Evan deflects her blow and grabs her! Evan tells Lucinda to get them out of there.

Back in the hall, Holden hears a noise and tries to get inside the room but Margo holds him back. Chris comes out and apologizes to Margo for not talking Evan down. Holden calls Kim at WOAK and asks for the chopper to be sent over. Margo tells him that is a good idea. Holden calls into the room, saying a helicopter is on the way. Evan drags Lily and Lucinda from the room and walks behind them up to the roof! Margo, Holden and the cops follow at a distance. Once on the roof Evan locks it from the outside and begins looking for the chopper. They can see it in the distance and Lucinda begs him to let Lily go. Evan pushes Lily away and he grabs Lucinda. Lily lunges toward him and they fight over the syringe; Evan is stabbed with the needle! He falls to the ground as Margo and the others make it to the roof from another access door. Lily and Lucinda argue about Evan but Lily gets quiet when she realizes the cops are close by. She tells Lucinda she'll have to live with what she did. Holden convinces Margo to let him take Lily home. Margo begins questioning Chris, who hurries up with Emily. He says he met Evan in Darfur but didn't know much about the research. Craig is next to arrive; he says Evan sought him out and that the research seemed legitimate at the time. Margo believes them. Chris says he should have listened to his father! Emily comforts him but they argue about her accusations toward him regarding Dusty; Emily says he did things just as bad. Chris storms off, saying he never wants to see her again. Margo questions Lucinda, who says she had no idea who Evan was before he showed up in town. Margo walks off; Craig comes over and insinuates that he knows Lucinda was behind Evan's arrival in town!

Two nurses walk the hall, stunned about Evan. Paul hugs Meg, telling her that everything has worked out and how glad he is to be with her now. Meg pulls away and says she isn't "with" him at all! Paul doesn't want to accept that but Meg won't change her mind. She leaves. Craig arrives, rubbing Paul's nose in his failed attempt to win Meg.

Holden and Lily run into Meg in the hall and tell her about Evan. She is relieved that Lily and Holden are okay and no longer suspects. They leave. At the farm Holden asks Lily what her argument with Lucinda was about but Lily doesn't tell him. They sit at the table and talk; Holden says he doesn't know what he would do without her in his life. "I feel the same way," she says! They hug. Faith and Natalie arrive home, very worried because they saw some television coverage of the hostage situation. Holden and Lily reassure them that everything is fine now. The girls hug Lily.

Chris returns to Room 408 and stands outside, looking at the crime scene tape. Then he goes to Bob's room and touches the sign marking the room as Bob's. Emily watches him. Paul watches her!

Over coffee at Java, Noah and Luke talk about their likes and dislikes. The conversation turns to romantic movies and both guys try to picture themselves in those old Hollywood classics. They can't. So they decide to create their own "classic"; Noah asks what kind of relationship Luke wants! Luke isn't sure. They begin to work on a new story for their internships at WOAK, but the conversation turns back to their relationship rather than the relationship they are writing for work. Noah brings up family; Luke says they are creating a new kind of family - together! They share a sandwich.
