Holly grew close to Mac Scorpio, and this made Dominique so mad she broke up with him. But Holly didn’t love Mac, she was in love with Bill Eckert! After they helped Holly’s look-alike half sister Paloma restore freedom to her small country, San Sebastian, they returned to Port Charles where they consummated their romance with a night of passion at the Port Charles Hotel.
Scott stumbled upon news that incriminated Lucy in a Port Charles art heist! He told Bill and Holly who deduced that Lucy had supplied information about the local paintings to the wealthy Richard Halifax. When Halifax realized Bill and Holly were on to him, he arranged the return of all the art…except Bill Eckert’s painting, “Summer in Provence”, the only painting Lucy couldn’t have known about. Halifax swore he knew nothing about Bill’s painting. Bill didn’t believe him.
