When Alicia recieves word that Ed had died during their confrontation she feels guilty and believe shse caused his death but when she sees that Mae is happy instead of greaving for Ed, she begins to suspect that mae and Escobar had killed Ed, but she dismisses the idea and knows that Ed was a bad man. She is then asked to read some of her latest book at the bookshop in town and she quickly catches the eye of the book club moderator, Ted Swirl. He asks her to come back the next week to read some more and when she does he garners the courage to ask her out and she happily accepts. She and Ted then begin to date happily.

Ted, secrelty, visits James Person and threatens him to make things right with Candi and Jasper or else, James does so and Candi is elated. Ted and Alicia then continue dating. Alicia then recieves a suprise when her estranged older sister, Catherine Andrews, arrives in town. Catherine tells Alicia that she and her husband, Reginald, have separated and that she wants to make up for lost time and get to know her niece. Alicia allows Catherine to stay with them and introduces her to Ted who seems to reconginze Catherine, which bothers Cathy. This makes Alicia suspicious as to her sister's true intetntions for being in town. Afterwords Alicia asks Cathy question about the status of her marriage to Reggie, Catherine dodges the question by telling Alicia she has met a wealthy sim in town.

Ted, not wanting the whole wedding set up to go to waste, then proposes to Alicia. She accepts and they married then and there. She and Ted then share a long and happy marriage. However, after she and Ted marry Alicia begins to wonder if perhaps she only married Ted to simply supress her under-lying feelings for her ex-husband, John. When Candi confesses to Ted that she and Jasper purposely broke Mae and Escobar up, he decides to keep it a secret so Alicia won't become angry. However, when Alicia does discover this, she decides to not blow it out of proportion because she and John had shared a passionate kiss and she feels guilty. When Donna Talbot, comes to town, she is initially mean and crude to Alicia and even sees Alicia and John kiss on the sidewalk, which leads to them having a rondevous session.

However, she comes around as love blossoms between Alicia and John again. Alicia then meets new resident, Donna Talbot, who quickly establishes herself as a town frenemy. When it is revealed that Catherine still holds her criminal position and her entire redemption was simply a facade she and Alicia have a falling out as Cathy goes into hiding. Alicia and John's relationship also comes to an abrupt end when she asks him to move in and he hesitates at the offer. Seeing his childish nature she ends their second relationship but instead of becoming saddened she sees it as the aprpriate break up they should have had years ago.

When Catherine comes out of hiding she tries to apologize to Alicia and tells her that her wanting to repair their relationship and re-connect was not an act and that she has truly missed her. Alicia at first refuses, but after seeing the truth in Catherine's eyes, she tells her that in time sha can and will forgive her. Alicia then goes through a dry spell, dating wise and simply takes time to relax and write. She and Catherine are then blind sighted when their long absent mother, Frances Cabot, arrives in town for a visit. She makes her plans known that she will be staying with Alicia. During this time, The Sun-Crest Killer, begins stalking the towns people. And Alicia's cousin, Mike March, comes to town shortly after the return of Franny.

However, when Mike becomes a victim of the killer (but survives) Catherine cathces Franny attempting to smother Mike in the hospital and she reveals that she is the killer and did kill the girl's father, Walter and their uncle, Leo. Apparently, Walter had an affair which sent Franny over the edge and she has since waged a war on adulteres.

Finally Alicia tells Chris the truth when she hears that he had ordered the arrest of Chloe Talbot, believing that she faked her attack so she could escape custody. After Alicia tells Chris about her mother's involvement in the whole event he ends their relationship and tells her that she let a killer go free. He tells her that if he didn't care for her and by association Catherine, he would have them locked up for aiding abd a bedding a criminal. He then calls it in and has Chloe relaesed and leaves Alicia in tears as she attempts to tell him her intentions were good.

Alicia quickly gets over her break up with Chris and resumes to work on her tell all book about the killings. She then begisn to watch as her son-in-law, Luke Donovan, becomes consumed with finding the killer and even gets as far as working with Chris who eventually tells him to move on and closes the case, now knowing that Franny is the killer.

Still Shining

When David learns that Mac's surname is Cabot he becomes even more curious and corners him in his home asking if he is a relative of the family, perhaps a son of Travis or Catherine. Mac reveals himself to then be not only David's brother, but his twin.

Mac reveals that they are both biologically Alicia Cabot's son's. Alicia had discovered she was pregnant with Chris McCain's child(ren) right after their break up and left town to see her father's mistress, Nadia Walker. After helping "take care of" their serial killer grand-mother, Alicia gave birth to twin boys, David and Mac (short for McCain) whom she gave up for adoption.

Mac then meets Chris who is elated at the revelation.

Chris then visits Alicia's grave and is visited by her spirit. HE lashes out at her for concealing the existence of their children from him. She accepts the blame and tells Chris he is right to be mad. She then says that at the time she was scared because of her mother, and when she returned he had a budding romance with Roxy Crowley, his true love. The pair manage to forgive each other and Alicia encourages Chris to forge a relationship with their sons, one that she was unable to and states how Mac is just like him. She then disappears.
