Emily finds Iris drinking in the Fairwinds Wine Cellar, with the place a wreck.  Iris thinks she’s been caught and that Emily has also seen Barbara, but when they talk to Gwen it becomes clear she has not, and is disappointed only in Iris’ drinking.  Iris, glad she hasn’t been found out, plays up her shame and throws herself on Gwen’s mercy.  Gwen understands, and actually blames Iris’ relapse on Emily, for not being as kind as she could be.  Emily can’t believe it.  Iris goes to Barbara’s room and gets ready to cash a large check.  At EOD, Emily is again disbelieving when she finds Barbara in the wine cellar. Emily has found Barbara tied up in the wine cellar.  She toys with her little bit, teasing her about it being nice with Barbara bound and gagged.  Iris finds this scene and knocks Emily over the head with a wine bottle, then ties Emily to Barbara.  Emily reveals to Barbara that Henry and Vienna are no longer together, and that ever since Barbara “disappeared” Henry has been spending all his time trying to find her.  Barbara’s faith is renewed and now she needs to escape to get home to Henry.  Gwen calls the hospital to know when to pick Iris up but hears that there is no AA meeting at Memorial today.  Henry has more or less confirmed that Barbara is in trouble.  He still considers Vienna a suspect.  Iris, sensing their getting close, suggests it could be Emily – who she’s tied up in the wine cellar.  Henry, still in his get-up, goes to the Warehouse with Paul and Myra Haft, the psychic.  Myra says Chuckles has been witness to much pain and suffering in the room, but confesses that there’s not much to offer in the way of evidence or testimony.  But Henry keeps believing, and in the end finds the scrap of paper on which Barbara had written that she was in trouble.  At EOD, Henry is vindicated.

Chris has his blood tested for an illness and Reid is concerned.  Both prepare for a meeting with union reps at Al’s, Reid with Luke, and Chris with Katie.  But Chris snaps at Katie because of his stress and later finds out that he’s tested positive for a serious condition.  Chris falls asleep while preparing for the meeting and is later chewed out by Bob for appearing lackadaisical, the opposite of how he should act if he wants to be COS, considering he’s Bob’s son.  Reid, meanwhile, takes Luke’s advice (mostly) and knocks the meeting out of the park.  Luke and Reid go for dinner at Metro.  Luke talks about Noah, and Reid is uncomfortable at that.  Later, Alison sides with Luke that Noah has been a big part of his life and Reid will have to accept hearing about him.  Noah is moving to LA in September.  Meanwhile, at Metro, Katie and Chris, and Casey and Alison, are also there.  Chris asks Reid to give him an injection, and he does so in the restroom.  Katie later complains to Reid that Chris has been hot and cold with her and Reid, knowing what’s going on with Chris’ health, asks her to be patient, while having already encouraged Chris to tell her the truth tonight.

Lucy goes to Craig’s room and they have an awkward reunion. Johnny returns with a scraped knee and Craig’s alarmed, internally, that Blackthorn could have been the man who knocked Johnny over as part of his threat. Craig accuses Blackthorn of attacking his kid, and Blackthorn denies but still wants his money.   Carly’s informed by Lily that there’s no perfume factory and that Craig was the silent partner. Carly’s upset that Lily would let Craig into their business plan. Carly turns to Jack for emotional support. Together they will look into Craig and Blackthorn.  Carly overhears Craig and Blackthorn talking about their deal. She confronts Craig, and he denies that helped Carlisle fail. Carly tells Jack that she wants to set up Blackthorn to get to the truth of the matter. Jack will let her if she wears a wire.  Dusty and Lucy wake up together. Dusty rushes off to a meeting with Teri, leaving Lucy wondering about his feelings for her. Dusty tells Teri he saw Blackthorn and Janet kissing. Teri goes to Janet and encourages her to take action before she loses Dusty. Janet takes lasagna to Dusty’s room, only to find him back in Lucy’s embrace. Jack takes distraught Janet home from the Lakeview, where she saw Dusty and Lucy in bed together. Jack tells Janet she has no one to blame but herself, since she pushed Dusty away so often. Janet concedes that Jack has a point. Dusty tells Janet that he’s sorry she was hurt by his actions, but he can’t apologize for not being perfect – he never said he was.  Janet can’t accept Dusty’s love since he slept with Lucy. Liberty defends her. Janet takes Blackthorn up on his offer to meet. Meanwhile, Jack and Carly can hardly resist the heat when Carly unbuttons her shirt so Jack can wire her. Holden walks in on them, diffusing the moment. Carly finds Blackthorn in the Lakeview Lounge and flirts with him in the hope of discovering some evidence of his corrupt past. Blackthorn is about to admit to something when Janet walks into the lounge.

Gabriel hints to Lucinda that he knows she’s behind the sabotage of Carlisle. Lucinda goes to Worldwide only to find a crying Lucy. Lucy berates Lucinda for coaxing her back to town and into Dusty’s arms when Dusty loves another woman. Lucy and Gabriel meet for the first time and bond over memories of Lidia. Lucy tells Gabriel she’s leaving because she can’t put up with her family. Gabriel confesses that he knows Lucinda set Craig up.  Craig receives a threat.  Lucy advises Gabriel to do whatever he’d like with the information that Lucinda set up Craig for failure. Gabriel goes to tell Craig, but Craig, worried about Blackthorn’s threat to his children, tells Gabriel to stay away from him. Hurt Gabriel goes to the Snyder pond. In Fashions, Liberty berates Lucy for sleeping with Dusty and ruining her mother’s happiness. Lucy tells Liberty that Janet already won. Liberty joins Gabriel at the pond, where they console each other.  Craig’s freaked out by the bomb threat he’s received. Dusty learns of Blackthorns menace to Johnny. Dusty threatens Blackthorn at Al’s. He leaves, only to run into Lucy who’s there to say goodbye.

Holden tells Lily he’ll always rescue her, no matter what. Lily doesn’t want to need rescuing. Holden recommends she stop hanging out with Craig then. Lily’s not entirely convinced. Lily meets Holden, who presents her with the necklace she hocked to get them flown back in time for Holden’s wedding. Lily’s touched by the gesture, until Holden starts to go off on Craig. Lily tries to convince Holden that Craig isn’t to blame, but they argue instead. Lily walks off, only to come home to find Sierra and Lucy there to warn her about Craig as well. They discuss how Lucinda’s played them like chess pieces and they bond.
