Mia implored Frank not to seek out William because she feared it would upset their son's life, and she also enlisted Simone's help in getting Frank to back off. Jamie met Joni at the boathouse and headed to church - secretly -- with her and her family. JR and Laurie also had a secret meeting, in which JR gave Laurie his class ring. Jake continued to demand that Liza be held accountable for Mia's "accident." Anna learned that Aidan was wanted by Scotland Yard for murder.

Julia and Maria met face-to-face for the first time in years, but the reunion was far from happy. Aidan had a flashback of kissing a woman named Fiona. Mia informed Jake that their wedding was off. Erica prepared to square off with Greenlee, who was plotting to topple Enchantment as the cosmetics company.

Aidan told Maria that he had found Fiona shot to death with a note warning, "You're next." Aidan's hiding spot in the stable was nearly uncovered several times, but he managed to avoid capture. Aidan sneaked into the main house at Wildwind and sent an email to someone, which read, "Come and get me." Reggie, a young man at the Front Street Clinic, held Anna at scissor-point. Luis, another young man who made Reggie nervous, threatened Janelle. Greenlee, Kendall, Simone, Mia, Maggie, Joni, Laurie, and Liza had a New Year's Eve meeting to devise a launch plan for their company, which they named Fusion. Erica had a meeting with Jordan Roberts, a man from her past. Bianca and Chris worried that Erica might be flirting with him.
