Eve excitedly tells Julian that she was right about Vincent being alive as she goes to pick him up off the floor. Much to Eve's dismay, the person Julian threw to the ground turns out to be "Valerie." Eve is completely confused and asks where Vincent is. "Valerie" says Vincent is dead and Julian asks what she's doing there. "Valerie" tells them she wanted to check up on Eve and that she felt guilty about Eve finding her and Julian on the docks. Eve says it wasn't the first time and then demands to know where Vincent is. Valerie/Vincent thinks to himself, "Closer than you think mother." He then flashes to putting on the Valerie disguise right before Julian found him. Julian and Eve go back and forth again about Vincent being alive. Eve accuses him of thinking she's going mad. She tells him that she will prove that Vincent is there. Julian tells Eve he thought she accepted that Vincent was dead, but Eve says that changed when she touched him earlier that night. They rehash how Vincent died and the DNA evidence, but Eve can't understand how he could be dead. She says she just wants her son to be alive and then asks Julian to get a sedative and a cup of tea of for her. Julian asks "Valerie" to keep an eye on her while he gets Eve's medication. Valerie/Vincent thinks to himself that it won't be a problem. As Eve lays on the couch with her eyes closed, Vincent rips off his Valerie mask and stands in front of Eve as himself. Eve looks up and is shocked to see her son. After the shock wears off she's thrilled to seem him and yells for Julian to come back. When Julian returns, Vincent is gone. "Valerie" comes back into the room and wonders what all the commotion is about. Eve freaks out and wonders what is happening to her. Julian tries to calm her down as "Valerie" slips some pills into Eve's doctor bag. Eve yells for Vincent to come back and "Valerie" assures her that Vincent is gone. Eve then attacks "Valerie" and says she must have seen Vincent and knows where he is. "Valerie" says she doesn't know what she's talking about, but Eve again accuses her of knowing where Vincent is. Julian tells her to stop the craziness and Eve insists that "Valerie" knows what's going on and that she's part of it. Eve sticks to her story that Vincent was in her house and tells Julian that he's supposed to love and believe her. Julian says he does love her, but just looks distraught when Eve insists that Vincent is alive. Eve tells Julian and "Valerie" to get out of her house when she realizes that they think she's crazy. She tells "Valerie" that she's on to her and calls her a conniving little b**** before she leaves the room. Julian says he'll go calm Eve down, but "Valerie" tells him to wait till she's more rational because there's nothing he can do for her right now.
Gwen Cracks the Code
Eve continues to become unglued, Ivy accuses Kay of being a serial killer, Pretty messes with Fancy's head, Gwen gets the dirt on Theresa and Pilar convinces Theresa to tell the truth.
At the Crane Mansion, Kay walks into the living room to see Fox's casket. She cries as she says even though they had problems he didn't deserve to be murdered. She picks up a black sweater lying on the couch and puts it on because she's cold. She goes back to the casket and tells Fox she hopes he's at peace and that she knows they loved each other despite their problems, as Esme walks in. Kay asks if she's alright since she's known Fox since she was a little girl. Esme tells Kay that it's more than that because her and Fox were together up till the end. Kay hugs her and tells Esme she's glad Fox wasn't alone. Sam walks in and asks Kay what she's doing there. She tells her father that even though they were broken up, Fox was still her husband. Ivy then enters the room, accuses Kay of killing Fox and slaps her. Sam pulls Ivy away from Kay and Ivy tells Sam to arrest "Your s*** of a daughter." Sam tells her he has no evidence linking Kay to Fox's murder. Sam then notices Esme and asks if she's ok, telling everyone about her being with Pete who was also murdered. Esme says "He was the cat's meow," and they discuss the incident and Pete's bizarre preferences. Ivy bitingly says she's glad to hear Esme has gotten over her son so quickly and Esme replies that it wasn't like that, "Everyone has their own unique way of grieving." Viki then enters the room and lays her head on Fox's casket. Ivy is pleased to see that someone besides her is grieving for her son. Ivy asks Sam about Fox's case and Sam pulls out the file on Fox's death and says that some fibers from a black cashmere sweater were found on the window ledge. Everyone notices Kay's sweater matches that description and Sam says he needs to gets some samples from the sweater. Kay swears she didn't have anything to do with Fox's death, saying it makes no sense that she would kill him. Sam asks where she got the sweater and Kay responds that she just found it and gives it to Sam. She then offers for him to search her and empties out her purse. Sam finds a bag of catnip and Esme notes it was the same stuff she used on Pete. Sam then asks where Kay was when Pete was killed. Kay is questioned about her whereabouts and Kay says she was at Tabitha's all night. Sam wants to talk to Tabitha to confirm the story, but Kay remembers that she turned Tabitha into an "Evil Tinkerbell" and says that Tab is gone somewhere, but she doesn't know where. Ivy thinks Kay probably killed her too and Sam says things don't look good for Kay. Ivy demands Kay be arrested since she doesn't have an alibi. Ivy verbally attacks Kay and Sam tells her to let him handle it. He questions Kay's story, recounting that she doesn't know where Tabitha is and that two men are dead. Ivy then says, "The next thing you know, you won't be able to tell us where Endora is." When Kay can't come up with the little girl's whereabouts, Ivy accuses her of being a serial killer.
