After being on the same soap opera for twenty years, Carmen suggests that Spence throw himself a party. At the party, Carmen greets an actor who plays Dr. Blake McDye. The maid is so excited to meet actor, stating that she hated his character. This puts the actor in an awkward position, so he walks away. Some time later, a group of robbers: Ethan, Carter, and Jason break in. They have everyone, including the actor get down on the ground. As Carmen tries to call the police, Ethan grabs her threatening to shoot her if anyone tries anything. Spence's nephew, Ty, decides to be a hero and stand up for Carmen. Spence tells him to get down so he isn't hurt. However, Ty does not listen and he runs forward at Ethan. The actor who plays Blake McDye then trips him so he's not hurt by Ethan. This leaves Ty completely and utterly humiliated. Carmen then grabs a knife and stabs Ethan in the gut. He, Carter, and Jason get away. After the police arrive, the actor, along with whoever else was at the party, is asked to give a witness statement about what he saw happen. ("The Visit")
