In their shared dream, the couple travels back in time and imagine themselves as an artist and his headstrong model in the Paris of the early 1800's. An irate neighbor complains to Lucy about Sigmund biting his dog but Kevin gets the worst of the argument when the man hauls off and punches him in the nose. Later, Lucy receives her divorce papers from Scott and admits to Kevin how much she regrets the way she's messed up her life for so long.

When Chris read it, he smiled and called a friend of his, the dean of the Port Charles medical school. He arranged to bring Livvie to the school and thanked his friend for the favor. Livvie went to the Alison's and Jamal's garage to see if she had left the letter there and she ran into Jack instead. Jack contended that she hadn't just been looking for a letter, she had also been looking for him. Frustrated by his taunts, Livvie slapped him, then pulled him into a long hot kiss. In Paris, Eve and Ian basked in their love for each other. Eve decided to leave her husband to be with Ian, but before she could, her husband walked in. Eve said she would go with him, but told Ian that she would always love him. Her husband declared the duo would never be together and he shot at them. Eve jumped in front of Ian and took the bullet for him. As she died in his arms, Ian vowed never to leave her. In the present time, Eve woke up, but Ian didn't.

Eve and Ian hastily invent a cover story when the INS agent again appears at the Scanlons' basement apartment with more questions about the Thornhearts' union.

March 9 - Tinkering again with the old computer, Frank is surprised to see a melancholy message appear on "Nellie's" monitor. Gabriela chides Joe for not warning her that Ian had the hots for Eve. Meanwhile, at the loft, Arianna explains to her husband why she changed their address during his absence. Eve inadvertently blurts out to Kevin the truth about Ian's marriage of convenience. Revealing how Ian saved her life on the island, Eve assures a wary Kevin that she's truly happy with her new man. Arianna can barely hide her disappointment when Ian pronounces their latest living arrangement the perfect cover for the INS. Joe advises Gaby to stop meddling in the triangle which is beginning to form around Ian and the two women in his life.

Eve's unscheduled arrival at the loft makes for an awkward moment.

Though Jamal urges her to give Amanda a chance, Alison reminds him that her granny is a slippery character who will stop at nothing to pry them apart. Arianna angrily takes her husband to task for not letting her know how the INS agent spotted him with Eve in the basement apartment. Later, out of Ian's earshot, Arianna demands that Eve reveal her true agenda. Karen suggests to Frank that someone with a major crush has been sending him those cryptic e-mails. Jack advises Alison and Jamal not to let their petty squabbles ruin a fabulous relationship. Fed up with Eve's excuses, Arianna screeches at her rival to leave her and Ian alone from now on. Alison smells a familiar rat after a city building inspector threatens to close down Jamal's shop for code violations. Eve warns Ian that his wife has fallen in love with him.
March 13 - With just 48 hours to fix the building code violations, Alison, Jack and Jamal scramble to get the bike shop up to speed. Though Ian scoffs at her concerns, Eve insists that Arianna's main fear is not deportation by the INS but losing the man she loves to another woman. Though Alison decides to expose Amanda's misdeeds by taking a certain audio tape to the media, Jamal firmly vetoes her idea. Kevin explains to Lucy why he missed their dinner date and how his hand was cut by the irate wife of a patient. Later, Lucy applauds her lover's choice when Kevin reveals how he's agreed to head up a kind of "psychiatric SWAT team" for the police department. Ian tells Eve he's working on a way to give his wife a new identity to keep her safe in some town far from Port Charles. Meanwhile, a heartbroken Arianna weeps alone on the docks. Jack is forced to referee another spat between Alison and Jamal. Gaby cautions Ian that Arianna has developed some genuine feelings for him which go way beyond play-acting for the Immigration service. Approached by a stranger, Arianna becomes completely hysterical and begins flailing her arms at the startled man.
March 14 - Eve heads to the lighthouse to seek help from her estranged husband and is peeved when a half-dressed Lucy answers the door. Ian rushes to the hospital upon learning that his wife has been admitted.

Grateful for the way Jack played Cupid for herself and Jamal, Alison urges Livvie to give her former boyfriend a second chance. At the Recovery Room, Chris taunts a fuming Frank about his renewed interest in his brother's old flame. Later, as Chris starts to coach her for her med school interview, Livvie finds herself daydreaming about Jack instead of listening to her self-appointed mentor. Alison begins to lose hope that Jamal will ever be able to open the bike shop. Chris intercepts a call from Karen and deliberately neglects to let Frank know about her plans to come home early. Lucy offers a sympathetic shoulder to a tearful Eve. Following an aborted attempt to counsel a traumatized Arianna, Kevin warns Ian that his wife is in serious trouble.
March 15 - Karen returns home from Memphis and tells Eve she's especially eager to hook up with Frank. Meanwhile, Frank continues to receive peculiar messages via "Nellie". Arianna shakily explains to Ian how devastating an effect the rape had on her entire life. Eve confides to Karen her fear that Ian's wife will never release her hold on him. After Ian gently encourages her to open up, a sobbing Arianna finally reveals how one of her brother's friends brutalized her.

Entering the garage alone, Frank smothers Karen with kisses. Afterwards, he explains how he asked one of his waitresses out but couldn't follow through because he realized that Karen was the only woman he wanted.

A computer specialist arrives to take a look at "Nellie" and archly informs Frank that it's impossible for him to be receiving e-mail messages on such an old machine.

At the loft, an INS agent interrogates an annoyed Ian about his island interlude with Dr. Lambert. Chris and Eve raise a toast to the concept of hardening their hearts against falling in love.

March 26 - Karen reluctantly sent a message through Nellie and was very surprised when she got a response. She found that there was a person on the other side of Nellie only her name was Cookie. Cookie told Karen that she was in high school and that her dad would kill her if he found out that she was using his machine. Joe and Gabriela were about to enjoy their stay in London when Gabriela ran into Ben at the front desk. Ben jumped all over Gabriela when he recognized her from Port Charles while she accused him of being a murderer. Ben dismissed her accusations and showed her the article about Joe in the paper. Since Joe was busy finding fellow speakers to critique his speech, Gabriela pretended that Joe was dead. She told Ben that Joe had been scheduled to speak before his death and that the article was only a mistake on the part of the committee. For the moment, Ben seemed to accept her story and left, but not before threatening Gabriela and telling her to keep quiet about seeing him there. Karen was chatting with Cookie about school when Frank walked in. He was so relieved to find that Karen didn't think he was crazy anymore. Karen explained that she should have trusted him, but that she may have been pushing him away just because everything was going so well and she didn't want to get hurt. Unknown to Karen was that Cookie wore a gold heart necklace very much like the one that she was wearing. In the middle of their conversation, Cookie was interrupted by her father, who angrily told her to stay away from the computer and shut it off. Eve told Ian about her drunken evening with Chris in an effort to explain why she was soaking wet. She left out the part about Chris and her almost sleeping together. Overjoyed that Ian's marriage would be over soon, Ian and Eve were going to stay together, but they decided that it would probably be better if he leave just in case the INS were watching. But, before he could get out the door, they caved and fell onto the bed. It wasn't long before there was a knock on Eve's hotel room door. Being cautious, Ian hid while Eve opened the door. The visitor was a hotel employee delivering a package that evidently came from the island that Eve and Ian had visited. The package was from Mya and contained a statue and a note. The note explained that she had sent the statue of a couple so that it would watch over Eve and Ian's love. Eve was reassured that her and Ian would work out just fine. Eve got ready to leave her hotel room and set the statue on a table near an open window. Shortly after she left, the breeze from the window knocked the statue off of the table separating the two figures in it. Gabriela filled Joe in about her visit with Ben. Joe quickly called Ian to let him know about the encounter with Ben. Then, Joe and Gabriela hurried to get out of the hotel, but hidden behind a newspaper, Ben was watching.
March 27 - Lucy and Kevin returned from another wild motorcycle ride. Shortly after, Lucy told Kevin how great it was that Alison had talked him into buying the bike. With the mention of Alison, Kevin's mind shifted towards Livvie. He expressed how concerned he was that Chris was going to hurt her. Immediately, Lucy started to come up with sneaky ideas of how to get Chris away from Livvie. Kevin tried to tell her that they needed to let Livvie do this on her own, but Lucy wasn't listening. From the on call room, Chris called Kim and told her to poke around Livvie's bedroom to see if there was a diary. He said that he was ready to step things up and get into her heart. Just then, Eve walked in. Acknowledging the awkward situation, Eve tried to stop Chris from ridiculing her, thanked him for not taking advantage of her and made him promise not to tell anyone what almost happened. She told him that he was a good guy underneath and that she knew he wouldn't hurt a woman intentionally. Sensing the reference to Livvie, Chris defended himself by explaining that he was taking it slow with Livvie and that he would never hurt her. Alison tried to put her two cents in with Livvie, but Livvie wouldn't listen. She told Alison that she was going to see what was there with Chris, this time for real. Alison did her best to remind Livvie of how she feels around Jack. It seemed that Livvie was trying to make herself care about Chris and Alison told her that wasn't how it should be. Still, Livvie defended Chris because he was the only one who had been there for her since the beginning. Victor and Ian discussed the plans to put Arianna in hiding. Since all of the plans were in order, they broke the news to Arianna that she would be leaving sooner than planned, but left out the part about Ben being a possible threat again. Ben was on a jet on his way to Port Charles with an article in hand about Joe and Gabriela's safe return to Port Charles. Kevin decided that Lucy was right and Chris needed to be dealt with. Kevin even insinuated that they should have someone "get rid" of Chris so that Livvie would be protected. Lucy was surprised at Kevin's reference to violence. Then, with serious face, Kevin was getting excited about the possibility that Livvie would be safe with just one phone call. Lucy was really disturbed now so she started to talk him out of it. Kevin was disappointed and asked if Lucy would prefer he do nothing. Faced with the alternative, Lucy decided nothing was the best choice. With Kevin's smirk, Lucy knew that he had been scamming her in order to prove that the best thing to do was to not interfere in Livvie's life. With her fingers crossed, Lucy agreed that he was right and they should do nothing. Alone with Ian, Arianna demanded to know if her hasty departure had been arranged because he wanted to be with Eve as soon as possible. Standing his ground, Ian still didn't tell her about Ben, but insisted that he was only doing this so that she would be safe as soon as possible. Chris was on the phone with Kim who had found Livvie's diary when Livvie found him still in the on call room. She apologized for the way that she had been treating him. Chris explained that she shouldn't be so worried, but she insisted that she had been terrible to him while he had been nothing but nice. Livvie promised that she would make it up to him and sealed it with a kiss. Alone with Arianna, Alison took the opportunity to welcome Arianna to Port Charles. She stressed how wonderful the people were and what a great place PC would be to raise children. Upset, Arianna quickly got up and told Ian that she was on her way home. Eve followed her out. Outside, Eve reminded Arianna that Ian was doing all of this to protect her. Eve told Arianna that she thought she was a brave woman and wished her a long, happy life. Meanwhile, Ben was landing in Port Charles.

Meanwhile, at the hospital, Ben sneaks into the on-call room and prepares to strangle Eve but a timely interruption saves the unwitting doctor from being attacked.

APRIL 9 - Karen confronted her mom about the picture of her Aunt Caroline. She couldn't believe that she had never told her how much alike they looked. Her mother said that Karen was exactly like Caroline in every way, but her death was just too painful for her to discuss. She did reveal that Karen's precious locket once belonged to Caroline. Karen tried to get more out of her, but she needed to leave because she had become so upset. Frank was surprised to learn that Cookie lived in Port Charles. He told her that he could help her better knowing that she lived in the same town. Frank asked Cookie for her phone number so that he could give it to Kevin and she could have someone to talk to. Cookie insisted that she didn't want to tell her problems to anyone but Frank. Frank reminded her that they couldn't be talking anymore and Cookie decided that she would handle things by drinking. Eve couldn't believe that Ian was suggesting that they end their relationship. Ian was insistent that they could not be together with Arianna's blood on their hands, but Eve thought otherwise. Eve told Ian that she felt just as guilty as he, but she didn't think that it was worth ruining three lives over. She tried to get Ian to focus on getting Arianna well and to leave decisions about their future for later and he seemed to agree. While Chris was examining Arianna, Denise asked him about the rumors she had heard of Ben's death. Not knowing that Arianna was awake, Chris confirmed the rumors of Ben's fall and said that he thought that such a quick death was too good for him. Arianna opened her eyes and asked what he meant. Chris told her that her brother was dead and she replied by saying that she would soon join him. Lucy and Serena packed for a big trip into New York City. Lucy was worried about leaving Kevin home alone because he was so upset about everything that had happened with Ben and Arianna. Kevin assured her that he would be fine. While Frank was telling Cookie that drinking wouldn't solve her problems, Karen walked in. Karen was furious to find Frank still using the computer. She changed the subject and told Frank about her aunt, but couldn't hold his attention because he was too distracted by Cookie. Karen became even more angry and decided that since it was her computer she had the right to shut it down. Frank couldn't believe that Karen wanted to stop her from helping Cookie, but before they could finish their argument, she was called to the hospital. Chris interrupted Ian and Eve and filled them in on what had happened in Arianna's room. Ian was absolutely furious with Chris for telling Arianna about Ben in her condition. Chris tried to explain that it was an accident, but Ian was in a world of his own. Ian rushed in to see Arianna who was relieved when he confirmed that she was in no danger anymore. He showed her the scrapbook and told her that she would be able to fill it with as many memories of Port Charles as she wanted. With Eve looking on, Ian promised that he would make sure that Arianna got the life that she deserved. Kevin got a phone call from the hospital asking him to meet Alan Quartermaine and was told that he would know what it was about. Kevin told Lucy that he had to go deal with a patient and wished her and Serena well on their trip.

Chris agrees with both Eve and Karen about moving Arianna. Frank returns to the room with the ripped apart computer to throw it away and is shocked to find Nellie has somehow sent him another message.

May 4 - 18, 2001
May 4 - Kevin spoke to Rhonda to ascertain whether or not there really was a Karen Wexler. Rhonda insisted that Frank was crazy and that she didn't have a daughter. Ian overheard Kevin and asked if there was even the slightest chance that Karen really did exist. Kevin found out from Victor that there were no records anywhere of Karen. Frank ran from everyone because he knew they believed he was crazy. He remained determined to not only find evidence of Karen's life, but to return her to the present time. Ian found him in the park and asked for information about Karen. Frank recounted the whole story again, but Ian didn't believe it. When Frank mentioned something that only Eve, Ian, and Karen could know, Ian realized Frank could be telling the truth. Livvie and Alison commanded Jack to tell them where Jamal was and what was going on. Jack hemmed and hawed and tried not to tell them anything. A customer came in talking about the motorcycle races and Alison figured out that Jamal was racing. They all rushed to the track just as Jamal was crossing the winning line. Alison pulled him away from Zach and Sam and demanded to know why he was racing again. Eve attempted to tell Ian about the baby, but a series of interruptions prevented her from doing so. She finally gave up and made up a story that he believed. Chris chastised her for not telling Ian the truth, but Eve didn't feel that the time was right. She told Chris that whether or not Ian was a part of her life didn't matter. She was prepared to raise and love her child on her own. Chris told her that she didn't have to do that because he was willing to help her. He asked her if she would consider marrying him.

When Zach orders him to race again, Jamal threatens to turn a certain incriminating tape over to the cops unless he backs off.
May 8 - Eve fantasized about marrying Chris and raising her child with him. In every fantasy, she was happy and so was Chris, but Ian kept popping up and ruining things. The dreams made her realize that she needed more time to sort out her feelings. She left a message for Chris telling him that she was still thinking about his proposal and was leaving town to do so. Ian was torn between wanting to believe in Frank and not understanding how the situation could be possible. As he drank a dram of whiskey, he had a vision of his sister Granya. Granya advised Ian to have faith in what was in his heart and trust himself. She also told him that there was no shame in wanting Arianna to be saved so that he and Eve could be together. Frank and Ian convinced the chief to give Frank the morca root that would allow him to travel back in time and fix the things he messed up. The chief told Frank that the herb would allow his spirit to travel, but to the outside observer, he would appear to be in a coma-like state. Knowing that his family and Joe in particular would flip out if they saw him like that, Frank decided to take the herb at Ian's house. He went to see his family to tell them that he no longer believed that Karen existed and he was going away to get some much needed rest. Everyone but Lucy and Kevin bought his story. Lucy urged Frank to give her the picture that Kevin drew of Karen, but Frank lied and said he threw it away. Lucy and Kevin privately agreed that they knew Frank wasn't telling the truth. Frank said a special goodbye to Mary and then wrote a letter for Neil in case he didn't return from his travels.
May 9 - Kevin spent the entire night in his office trying to recreate the picture of Karen as he assesses the whole situation. He then goes to Frank's house to talk with him. Frank tells Kevin that he is on his way to the airport. Kevin begins to question him about the trip, even asking if he could come along, hoping that Frank would tell him where he was really going. Kevin finally shows Frank the second picture of Karen and Frank was surprised that Kevin could recreate another. He said that he was able because Frank's description was so deep and sincere that it stuck with him. Frank confided that he was going to search for Karen, but didn't tell him how. Kevin wished him luck and made him promise that he would call him first if he needed anything. As Eve prepared to leave town, Chris called to question her trip. She assured him that she was considering his proposal but just needed some time alone to think everything over. She didn't get very far before a flat tire stopped her. She starts to change it herself, but is afraid to take a chance and calls for assistance. On his way to the airport to pick up the herbs for Frank, Ian sees Eve and stops. Surprised that she wasn't changing the tire herself, Ian offers to help her. As he tightens the last bolt, the wrench slips and cuts his hand. Eve takes a look at his hand and they begin to embrace but she quickly pulls away telling him that she had to go. She begs him to come with her and almost slips about the baby. Upset, Eve gets in her car and Ian watches her drive away. Chris finds the perfect, one-of-a-kind engagement ring for Eve!
May 10 - Joe cornered Kevin to ask him if he thought that Frank was really stable enough to be alone in Alaska. Kevin assured Joe that Frank would be fine and convinced him to just give his brother time and space. Lucy told Kevin that she found out that Frank had never boarded the plane to Alaska. She was stunned and elated when Kevin revealed that he believed Frank and had encouraged him to look for Karen. Kevin showed Lucy the picture her drew of Karen and Lucy noted that Karen seemed very familiar to her. Sketch in hand, Kevin went to see Rhonda in her hospital room. Eve arrived at the cabin where she and Ian first realized their love for each other. She was determined to use the time to think about Chris's proposal and the life she wanted to make for her baby. Alison and Jamal entered their apartment to find the place ransacked. Jamal and Jack immediately figured out that Zach and his gang had been looking for the tape of Zach's confession. Jamal found the tape and told his friends of his plan to use it against Zach. Alison wanted Jamal to take the tape directly to the police or at least his cousin Dara. Jamal didn't have enough faith that the police would help him, but he agreed to talk to Dara. They listened to the tape to make sure the confession was good enough. Initially, they heard Zach talking, but then music started playing. At the same time that they were listening to the tape, Zach was listening to a copy he made and he smirked when the music played instead of his confession. A weakened Arianna confessed to Ian that she felt her time of death was near. Ian urged her to fight for her life and not give up. He told her that Frank was trying to find someone who was a perfect donor and asked Arianna to try and hold on until Frank returned. As the chief prepared the morca root for Frank, he had a few strong warnings. He told Frank not to tamper with anything other than getting Karen back. He knew that Frank would be tempted to change many other things, but if Frank did this, it could have dire consequences. Frank promised to only make certain that Karen was born and do nothing else. As he took the morca root and focused on Karen, he opened his eyes to find himself in a park. A newspaper on a bench revealed the date as being 1973. Frank had successfully travelled through time.
May 11 - As Jamal played the tape that was supposed to have Zach's confession on it, music started playing instead. Livvie realized that she had accidentally taped ch while taping some music. Jamal lamented that he didn't have proof of Zach's corruption. Zach and Sam came to talk to Jamal and gloat that he had nothing on them. He forced Jamal into agreeing to race for him, much to Alison's dismay. Eve settled into the cabin and tried to relax enough to think. When memories of her time with Ian overwhelmed her, she went for a walk in the woods. She got lost and tried not to panic when she heard a strange noise. She discovered that the noise came from a handsome stranger chopping wood. Kevin visited Rhonda in her hospital room to ask her more questions about Frank and Karen. Rhonda refused to talk about it and especially didn't want to talk about the computer. Kevin's suspicions grew when she said the computer had caused her nothing but trouble. Kevin stopped her from leaving the room and the picture she was holding of herself and Carolyn fell to the floor. Kevin picked it up and compared it to the sketch he drew of Karen. He looked up at Rhonda in shock. Frank safely arrived in 1973 and read the paper in the park to get caught up on what was going on. As he sat on the bench, a little boy ran up to him. Frank stared at him in stunned recognition as he realized he was looking at himself as a child. Soon, the boy's mother came to retrieve her son and Frank looked into the eyes of his mother. Mary was pregnant with Joe and obviously didn't recognize Frank, but she was very friendly toward him. He initially asked her to have coffee with him, but he rescinded the offer when she said she was on her way to apply for a job at GH. He was afraid that he might accidentally change something in the future if he detained her. She directed him to the Wexler household and Frank watched as Carolyn, who was the spitting image of Karen, came out of the house.
May 14 - Shocked by the drawing Kevin made of her "imaginary" daughter, Rhonda wonders how Frank could have described Carolyn so exactly without ever having met her. Meanwhile, in 1973, Frank trails Carolyn into Kelly's and stares openly at the familiar face. Eve encounters a man chopping wood in the middle of the forest. Introducing himself as Michael, the stranger offers to help Eve find her way back to the Johnson cabin but she nervously insists she'll be fine on her own. Kevin asks Gail to look in on an agitated Rhonda.

May 16 - Kevin and Lucy continue to try to find information to back up what they found in Carolyn's file. They go over to Mary's to see if she has any information about the Wexler Family and Carolyn's accident. Looking for a logical explanation, Kevin was hoping that maybe Frank remembered or possibly saw Carolyn being hit by the car and the memory has stayed with him causing his delusions of Karen. Mary told them that Frank was too small to remember her accident. After hearing that Lucy continued to insists that she is right. She and Kevin then break into Rhonda's house to look for more answers. Lucy is amazed as she enters the basement and finds everything set to 1973. Lucy then plugs in the computer and it comes on.

May 17 - Miserable in the cold cabin, Eve called Chris to see what he was up to. He was thrilled to hear from her and instantly hoped it meant she was considering saying yes to his proposal. Eve told him that she still hadn't made a decision, but they enjoyed a lighthearted conversation anyway. Chris was especially pleased when Eve said she was coming home and promised to talk to him once she got there. Eve packed her things and was prepared to leave when she encountered Michael outside of the cabin. He had brought her some fresh fruits and vegetables in gratitude for her tending to his wounds. Eve decided to make a meal of his gift and invited him inside. At the Recovery Room, Chris glowed from his conversation with Eve and held up the engagement ring that he had purchased for her.

As Harry yelled at them both, Mary came in having brought dinner for Cookie and Harry. She took Frank out of the house with her. Harry slapped Cookie across the face for causing him such grief. He later wheeled in a computer that he had built and Cookie realized it was the one Frank was telling her about. Mary took Frank back to her house and he reeled from the knowledge that he was talking to his own mother and couldn't tell her.

She told Chris how much she appreciated his support and proposal, and how she even daydreamed about the life they may have together, but she just couldn't marry him. They have a lighthearted conversation about what might have been and Chris wished her luck as he left the cabin smiling. Once on the outside, he took the ring he had bought for Eve out of his pocket and sadly gazed at it. The Chief, Ian and Lucy tried to calm Kevin's increasing worry over Frank's condition.

Kevin and Lucy stayed to take care of Frank, and Kevin began to panic when his blood pressure dropped very low. Back in 1973, Frank frantically tried to find the chip that would disable Nellie for good, growing weaker as he worked.

Ian decided that Joe was right and he went in to see Arianna. She thanked him for saving her life and wished him luck with Eve. Ian didn't know where he should look for Eve first until he remembered the cabin. Though Eve was prepared to leave for a new adventure, she went back to the monastery and confessed to Michael that she had no clue how to start. She asked him if she could stay and help him with the restoration until she figured something out. Michael surprised her with his adamant refusal. He wouldn't give her good reasons for his denial though and Eve eventually got him to agree to let her stay for a few days. Alone, Michael prayed for Eve's safety and asked that nothing bad be allowed to touch her. Frank covered when Karen questioned his words of time travel. He was going to leave her alone to rest, but she didn't want to be apart from him. He sat beside her on the bed and told her a fairy tale that was remarkably similar to Frank's journey through time. Karen cried over the beautiful story and told Frank that it sounded strangely familiar. Livvie confided in Alison that Jack had been overly passionate in bed the night before. She became too embarrassed to go into greater detail, but Alison made her promise to tell her more later. Jack sauntered in and asked Alison if they had been talking about him. Their conversation was interrupted when Garcia and Andy came in for a cup of coffee. Alison was shocked by Jack's antagonistic attitude towards the cops and diverted his attention from them by teasing him about his wild night. Jack told her he would show her exactly how wild he was and he pulled her into a kiss. Just then, Jamal and Zach walked in. Jamal pulled Jack off of Alison while Zach slipped away after spying the cops. Andy asked if anyone wanted to press charges, but nobody did. Jamal couldn't believe that Jack would betray his friendship in such a way. Alison took it lightly, assuming Jack had been joking. Livvie, who had come in when Jamal hit Jack, was also stunned by Jack's behavior. Jamal told Jack that he didn't want his help with the race because Jack was acting too weird. Livvie confronted Jack and asked him what was going on. Jack had no idea what was wrong with him.

When Karen left, Gabriela came in and said she had placed a call to Victor. She asked if Arianna was sure about her plans and Arianna said it was time for her to begin her life. Ian searched for Eve at the cabin, but was stymied when he could find no trace of her. He decided to look around the woods, thinking he would find a clue out there. Lucy and Serena packed a picnic lunch and prepared to journey to the woods to secure the last of Serena's Ladybug troop badges. Lucy was a little put-off when everyone kept warning her that the woods were spooky and weird things had happened there. At the campsite, Lucy laid out the picnic and tried to help Serena, who pulled away from Lucy. She told her mother that she was tired of being treated like a baby when she was so close to her teen years. Lucy promised to be more respectful of Serena's age, but warned her that in private, she would still be Lucy's baby. As they tickled each other, a noise in the woods disturbed them. Lucy grabbed her purse and started beating a man as he came out of the bushes. It turned out to be Ian. He tugged her purse away from her and the stranger tarot card fell out. Lucy revealed that the card meant danger for him or someone close to him. Ian told Lucy and Serena to leave the woods because he felt that something was wrong. Eve looked around the monastery for Michael, but he didn't respond to her calls. She had come with a question about one of the places he suggested needed her medical expertise. As she waited for him, cold air filled the room and Eve relit the candles when they blew out. She tried to get into another room thinking that Michael was inside, but the door was locked. She nearly jumped out of her skin when the door opened and Michael came out. He told her that he hadn't heard her calling and wouldn't let her see inside the room. He brought out a cradle that he had carved for her baby and told her that it would keep the baby safe in their travels. Eve didn't think she needed any protection, but Michael maintained that there was a lot of evil in the world and it didn't hurt to have a little extra help. Eve agreed, but wondered about his strange attitude.
May 30 - Karen persuaded Joe to release her from the hospital. Frank made her comfortable at home. He remembered that he still had her locket and returned it to her as Scott and Rhonda walked in to visit. Scott thanked Frank for taking such good care of Karen and told him that they would be visiting for a while if he wanted to take a break. He agreed that it would be a good time to leave for a while. Rhonda saw the locket in Karen's hand and told Karen how proud Caroline would have been for what Karen did, and the person she has become. She laughed and told them that she almost didn't go to the dance the night Karen was conceived, but that a friend who had been helping her through all of the things that had been going on in her life had also encouraged her to go. Scott asked Rhonda who the friend was and she told him that it wasn't anyone he would know, he wasn't from Port Charles; he was from the future. Hearing this intrigued Karen because of the time travel story that Frank had told her in the hospital. She asked more about this friend and Rhonda said that she didn't remember very much, he had dark hair and ironically enough, his name was Frank. Frank took flowers to Caroline's grave. He told her how sorry he was that he wasn't able to save her from the accident. He went on to tell her how proud she would have been of Karen, and that Karen is living out many of Carolyn's own hopes and dreams. He told her how difficult it was to keep his time travel journey to himself. He did not want to keep it all a secret, but was afraid something would come between them if he told her the truth. Frank then promised Caroline that he would always take care of Karen. As Jamal was getting his bike ready for the race, Alison questioned his decision to not let Jack and Livvie come. Jamal told her that he had enough to worry about during the race and didn't need additional distractions. Alison became more nervous went someone gave Jamal a ribbon to wear during the race in memory of another driver who was killed while racing. Jamal assured her that everything would be OK, and she asked him if they could go for a ride before the race. Jamal took Alison out for a great ride. They stopped along the road and Alison told Jamal how wonderful the ride was but needed to do one thing before they headed back. She then went over to Jamal's bike, pulled out a part, and hurled it across the road. In shock, Jamal asked her why she had done that and Alison told him that there may be a race, but that he was not going to be in it. Ian was about to give up on finding Eve when Granya "came" to visit him. She encouraged him not to give up now, he had come so far already.
