Lucas tells "Nancy Drew" to go ahead and search all she wants, maybe she should listen outside of their door at night. Lucas asks if his wife is so unhappy, why is she still living here? Sami tells him that she's already given up the man of her dreams, so she's trying to hold onto what she has left, the mansion, the country club, her job as a supermodel. Lucas asks Sami if she is trying to imply that Nicole only married him for his money, and Sami exclaims "duh!" Lucas wishes she would be happy for him and tells her that if it wasn't for his generousity, she would only be seeing Will on weekends and in the summer. Sami tells Lucas that his generosity almost cost her her life! Lucas says he would never take Will's mom away from him, he believes Will should be around both his parents, even if they do hate one another. Suddenly, Will calls out for his mom and dad.

ALi takes his gag off because they are in the middle of the boonies and nobody can hear him cry for help. Ali sees a sign for burgers and becomes hungry, so she decides to pull over. Ali covers Mike up with a blanket, and that is when she finds Mike's wallet with a picture of Carrie in it. She asks Carrie what she is doing here, she wasn't invited to the party. She then rips the picture up and screams "I hate you!" Ali returns later with food and tells Toni that she is going to push the pedal to the metal till they hit the desert. Ali gives Mike a kiss and tells him that they will have so much fun once he gets over his fantasy of a life with that two-timing slut Carrie. Mike tells her that he's not the one living the fantasy. Ali ignores him and eats her burger. She tells Mike that this is so romantic, the two of them under the stars. Ali tries to feed Mike, but he refuses to eat. Mike tells her that she is never going to get away with this. Ali says people get away with things all the time. She informs him that later at the hotel, Tony will stand guard and inside he will write his dear Jane letter to Carrie. Ali gets some ketchup on Mike's face, so she licks it off! As he squirms, Ali tells him he'll love what she's going to do to him tonight, he'll forget all about Carrie Reed!

Ali freaks out and tells Tony that Mike tricked her again. Tony tells Mike that wasn't very nice. Tony takes Mike out of the car and asks Ali what she wants him to do to him? Mike head butts Tony in the gut, and then starts screaming for help. Tony re-gags Mike and then stuffs him back inside the car. Tony offers to get rid of Mike for her, but she says she has special plans for Mike. Tony gets back in his car, and Ali gets into hers. She turns on "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" by Smashmouth and tells Mike that making that tape was very naughty. However, she says Carrie will forget about it after she gets the kiss-off letter. Ali informs Mike that at the next stop she's going to buy a diamond ring, and then they'll find a chapel to make sure they'll be together forever. She says she'll send her mom the dead flowers from her wedding bouquet, but then realizes the bitch won't believe her unless she sees the marriage certificate. She laughs and says maybe when she sees it, her mom will die of shock.
Up in the air, Austin and Carrie are in a police helicopter and spot Ali's car. The police tell Ali too pull over.

She asks if there is a particular reason why she is unhappy living here? Nicole says that when she said she felt trapped she meant that she was in limbo because she's not modeling anymore and she needs a sense of purpose. Kate tells her that her purpose is to support Lucas, and warns her not to disappoint him. Sami and Lucas return and Lucas asks what they were talking about? Kate says they were discussing how Nicole misses modeling. Lucas wishes she had told him that she missed modeling because he wants her to be happy. Nicole says she's never been happier in her life.

At the police station, Abe tells Claire that ALi's accomplice has been caught and arrested. DA Palmer shows up and tells Claire that she better get her lawyer here because Ali's arraignment is about to begin. CLaire tells Palmer that Ali does not need a lawyer, she needs psychiatric help. Palmer speaks with Ali, and she is willing to answer his questions. He asks her what she thinks of Mike Horton, and she gives him multiple choices. A: You think he's kinda cool, B: You love him a lot, or C: You are passionately in love with him. She says she chooses C, and asks what her prize is? Palmer asks Ali how she feels about what she did to Mike? ALi says all she did was try to make him love her back. Abe asks her if she remembers taking Mike away, and she doesn't. She says that Mike went to Las Vegas, and she followed him there. She admits that she took pictures of Mike and Carrie in Vegas, and she sent them to Carrie's very tall husband so he would learn about his adulteress slut of a wife. Claire tells them that Alison did more than take pictures, she tried to kill herself. Ali smacks her mom and says that is not true, she cut her hand when she put it through a window. Ali tells her mom that she is not crazy, she is an intelligent and educated person. She tells Abe and Palmer that her mom only likes to talk about the bad things she's done, never the good things. Ali says everything she did was for the love of her man, and she'd do it all again in a heartbeat. Abe opens his drawer and pulls out the Carrie doll. Palmer examines the doll, and Abe asks Ali if this doll is supposed to be Carrie? Ali says "Of course not, Carrie still has her head, unfortunately." Abe understands why she would want to hurt Carrie, but why would she try to kill Mike? Ali says she never tried to kill him, she wanted to show him how far she would go for him. Claire tells Abe and Palmer that none of this would have ever happened if Carrie had stayed out of Mike's life. As she is defending her daughter, Ali starts going "Blah blah blah, blah blah, blah blah blah." Claire begs them to allow her daughter to get the help she needs. ALi tells her mom that she does NOT need help, and asks how she could talk about her like this in front of Carrie? Ali points at the Carrie doll, which Palmer is holding. Carson puts the doll down, and ALi just stares at it. In a delusional fantasy, Carrie skips into the room, dressed exactly like a life-size Carrie the slut doll, and starts singing "Nah nah nah nah nah nah!"

At the hospital, Carrie asks the board members to reinstate Mike as COS.

Mike, Lexie, and Maggie walk in and hear this. Winston and Lewis stand up and see Mike, and ask him to please take his job back. Mike looks at them and then at Carrie, who is smiling.

Winston and Lewis offer both of them their jobs back, and Maggie and Lexie cheer. Lewis tells Mr. Wesely that he must have conflicted feelings about this, but Craig says this is how it should be, and Nancy says they understand. Mike tells them to wait. Mike says he can't speak for Carrie, but he can't take his job back. Everyone in the room is shocked, and Winston says he doesn't understand. Mike says what is important that his name is cleared, but he needs to take a leave of absence for awhile.

Mike tells Carrie that he plans to do some traveling. When Carrie says she could use some time away, Mike tells her that he needs to do this on his own. Mike tells Carrie that he talked with Jeremy last night and he's going to go over to Israel to visit him. Carrie asks Mike "I thought you loved me?" Mike says he does, but look what that love has done to her, the pain that it has caused her? Mike tells her that he is confused about some of the things he's done, how he's hurt so many people. He says he needs to distance himself from everyone and think about what he's done. Carrie tells Mike that she has given up everything for him, and asks why he is walking out on her? She begs Mike to take her with him. Mike says he is not walking out on her, but they both need time to heal. He tells Carrie that he wants to be the kind of man who is truly worthy of her love. Carrie tells him that he already is that man, but Mike says he isn't, but hopes to be someday. Mike tells Carrie that he loves her, gives her a kiss, and tells her this has to be goodbye for now.
