            Phillip hosted a costume party in the spirit of Halloween and in celebration of Beth’s return.  The Spaulding's and Lillian continued to believe that the reason for Beth’s slight change of character (sudden love of country music and dislike of classical, for example) is due to the “bump on the head” she claims to have gotten during the flash flood.  To her delight, Alan and Lillian rather enjoyed the “new” Beth, while Phillip enjoyed most of the changes but remained perplexed by some.  When asked to speak and give a toast, Lorelei (Beth) spoke from the heart when she said that she finally knows what is most important—the ones who love her and a home, a sense of belonging that she never had before.  A masked Edmund watched Lorelei’s every move and realized that she had grown to love her new life…

            Michelle and Danny hired look-alikes to don the same alien costumes as them in order to enable giving Gus, who attended the party to their dismay, the slip…Michelle fretted that they weren’t ready to do the heist yet, which Danny originally planned for two weeks from now…

            In the present, Josh and Olivia, who wanted to reunite with “old friend Beth,” made plans to attend the costume party.  In the past, Olivia’s dead ringer, Madame Robechaux, tried to frame Nurse Shayne (Reva) for spying.  To her shock and horror, Jack (Josh), grateful to his nurse for disclosing incriminating information about his wife’s affair, took the blame.  Both were accused of spying and locked up in adjacent prison cells by Morticah (Alan).  He taunted them that they would both be executed. 

            In her cell, Reva met a dead ringer for Felicia.  The woman revealed that she had been a slave who escaped and was jailed for helping slaves flee via the underground railroad.  Reva was touched, especially when the woman said that she could tell that Reva was good and wise from her aura.  One look at Reva’s palm was enough for her to know that Reva wasn’t finished.  This gave the time traveler hope that she would elude death.  Jack’s future, however, looked bleak as he was beaten by Morticah’s guards and shoved into his cell, writhing in pain.
