Kate asks Allie who she cheated on Tripp with. Allie admits that it was Chanel. Allie says Chanel is like her best friend she’s ever had and she couldn’t believe how happy she was to see her again when she moved here. Kate asks if Chanel came on to her. Allie assures that was not the case and they just had a couple of kisses. Kate asks if she considers that cheating. Allie says no and that Tripp was cool with that and didn’t judge her or anything.

Roman informs Tripp that he did hear something happened between Allie and Chanel but he thought it was minor and over with. Tripp says that Allie told him about them kissing and he was surprised but she said it was over, so he made himself get past that. Tripp adds that after that, things were great between them and Allie knew that but then she went and slept with Chanel. Roman asks how long ago that was.

Abigail tells Sarah that she came hoping to find her, but Sarah found her. Abigail says she’ll try to explain everything. Abigail shows her Renee’s diary and admits she read it. Abigail calls it an unbelivable story that she knows is true, but it’s not Sarah’s story, it’s Renee’s. Sarah remarks that she doesn’t understand anything. Abigail asks if she trusts Kristen. Sarah calls Kristen her little sister. Abigail says that Kristen told her that she gave Sarah the diary after she got her and she was drugged and confused, thus when she read the diary, she became convinced it was her story.

Tony tells Chad that he understands his feelings about Kristen. Chad points out that Kristen wasn’t always this bad. Chad says when he came in to the family, Kristen treated him like an annoying kid brother but she seemed to like him. Tony points out that it all got worse for her when her relationship with Brady fell apart and she lost contact with her daughter.

Kristen explains to Steve and Kayla that Abigail was planning on injecting Gwen to sweat a confession out of her. Steve points out that Abigail didn’t go through with her plan. Kayla accuses Kristen of injecting Sarah and giving her Renee’s diary. Kristen argues that she was forced to use the syringe but Abigail left it there to be found, so it’s all on her. Kayla refuses to believe her until she sees Abigail for herself to see she’s alright. Steve demands that Kristen take them to Abigail now. Kristen encourages them to eat the meal that she brought. Kristen points out that it’s not just Valentine’s Day, but their anniversary.
Kate tells Allie that she’s had a number of relationships turn bad so she shouldn’t ever give up hope. Allie argues that Kate wasn’t there. Kate thinks Tripp reacted how he did because he felt blindsided and once he calms down, he will realize what he’s throwing away. Kate asks if she’s tried to talk to him yet.

Kate says Allie is her grandchild and she loves her. Kate asks Allie to come with her.
Tripp tells Roman that he just doesn’t get it as it’s not just that Allie cheated on him, but that it was with Chanel which makes him think maybe she’s not as in to men as she wants to be. Roman can’t answer that but tells him that he knows what it feels like to be cheated on by a woman that you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with. Tripp mentions that Kayla told him about Roman and Marlena. Roman talks about Marlena swearing that she loved him but it turns out that she loved John in a different way which ended their marriage. Tripp thinks Allie loves him and says that’s the hard part. Tripp says that Allie is a good person so she wouldn’t just go behind his back for someone who meant nothing to her.

Tony thought it was over for them but Renee felt different and wanted him back. Tony talks about Renee doing hideous things to Anna and it was all for nothing. Tony calls Anna the love of his life and Renee had to accept the fact that she couldn’t come between them. Tony says he never wished Renee any harm, but his life has become far less complicated now that she’s dead. Tony looks out the window and says he can see land and light which excites he and Chad.
Sarah goes over Abigail telling her about Kristen kidnapping her and locking her in a secret room, where she found the syringe that Kristen used on her. Sarah doesn’t believe any of it. Abigail understands that she doesn’t remember because the drug wiped her memory of it. Sarah argues that Kristen would never do that to her but Abigail assures that Kristen would do that to anyone who got in her way. Abigail admits that she doesn’t think Kristen knew what was in the syringe but it’s a very powerful drug that has made Sarah believe that she is someone that she is not. Abigail knows what the drug can do because Gwen gave it to her and it caused her to have hallucinations, leading to her going to a psychiatric hospital for months. Abigail adds that she could have lost everything she loved but she got treatment and got better. Abigail warns Sarah that if she doesn’t listen to her, she could go down the same hole that she did and she might never get out.

Tripp tells Roman that Allie said she still wanted to marry him and what happened with Chanel was a mistake. Tripp admits he wanted to believe her. Roman asks if he still loves her. Tripp says he can’t just turn it off with a switch. Roman points out that they still love each other, so maybe Tripp could find it in his heart to forgive her. Kate and Allie then arrive at the Pub. Tripp asks what Allie is doing there. Kate explains that she came with her but they didn’t know Tripp would be here too. Tripp decides to leave but Kate asks him not to go. Kate says she brought Allie because she’s heartbroken and she didn’t want her to be alone. Kate adds that Allie just told her that she still loves Tripp and feels miserable about what happened. Kate knows Tripp is hurt as they had something so lovely together. Kate asks if Tripp can find it in his heart to forgive her. Tripp points out that Roman just asked him the same question. Roman asks what his answer is.
With Kristen gone, Kayla unties Steve. Steve tries to escape but finds the door is locked. Kayla asks about eating the food. Steve points out that they saw her open the champagne so it couldn’t have been poisoned. Steve adds that Kristen didn’t poison the salad that Kayla ate.

Roman asks Tripp again what his answer is but Allie tells them not to do this to him in front of everyone. Allie and Tripp step to the side. Allie knows Tripp can barely stand to be in the same room as her and she doesn’t blame him. Allie cries that she hates herself for what she did to him when he stood by her through everything and forgave her for other stupid stuff she’s done. Allie brings up Henry loving him like a father. Allie thinks she couldn’t tell him about what happened with Chanel for the same reason that she couldn’t tell him that she loved him for so long. Allie cries that she felt like damaged goods and like she wasn’t good enough for him, so now she’s proven that. Allie adds that she will never stop hating how much she hurt him but she’ll never stop loving him either. Tripp says she says these things and it seems like she means it, but she’s also said a lot of other things that he thought she meant. Tripp feels like he’ll never be sure if it’s him that she wants and if they’re not together, he could never be sure of who she’s with or what she’s doing. Tripp declares that he’s sorry but he can’t live like that. Tripp walks out of the Pub and Allie breaks down crying. Kate apologizes to Allie for bringing her here. Allie tells Kate it’s not her fault but she just wants to go home. Roman asks Allie to stay with them for dinner but Allie says she can’t eat and just wants to go. Allie then hurries out of the Pub.

Chad and Tony arrive at the house on the island. Tony recalls being here before. Chad notes the place is enormous. Tony says it has at least two wings so they should check every room for Abigail. They decide to split up. After they go in opposite directions, Kristen comes in and says she could’ve sworn that she heard the front door..
Abigail assures Sarah that she would never lie to her. Chad then comes in to the room. Abigail excitedly hugs him, saying she knew he would find her.
Allie returns home and finds a note from Nicole, saying she put Henry to bed and went to bed herself, adding that she would get up with Henry so Allie and Tripp could sleep in as late as they want, hoping they had the best, most romantic Valentine’s Day ever. Allie then breaks down crying again.
