Woods) did not propose to her.  But when the couple has a quiet holiday moment alone, he makes a surprising declaration!  Meanwhile, Lindsay and Jen (Jessica Morris), void of the holiday spirit, have unfinished business with the men in their lives.  For his own safety, Cristian (David Fumero) is forced to stay at Llanfair, close to Natalie (Melissa Archer), and the star-crossed couple find comfort in each other’s arms.  Later, Antonio (Kamar de los Reyes) is determined to uncover the truth about the paternity of Liz’s (Barbara Niven) baby, but he puts aside the investigation for an untraditional family celebration.  Will it be the Christmas Eve that Keri (Sheri Saum) and Antonio are hoping for?  Maybe…just maybe…
