At the Comeback, JR is irate that Babe is in parts unknown with a recently released, violent criminal. Greenlee offers to make calls to try to track them down, and Annie tries fruitlessly to get through to Babe's cell phone.
Trapped by the storm in the cabin, Richie tries to convince Babe that even though Annie is worried, it would be more dangerous to try to brave the torrential rain. She tries to get in touch with Annie a few more times but can't get through. She leaves her cell phone behind and runs out to see if there is any hope for a safe escape. While she is gone, the phone rings and Richie answers it wordlessly. He hears his sister pleading for Babe to answer, but refuses to speak up. Annie finally realizes that there is a possibility her brother might be listening. She warns him that she won't stop in her pursuit to make him pay if any harm comes to her daughter. As a way of hanging up, Richie tosses the phone to the floor. The battery pops out and he attempts to put it back together. Babe returns at that moment, and he apologizes, explaining that he accidentally dropped her phone, and feared it was irreparable.
Back at the bar, Annie flips out at the possibility that her brother could hurt her most precious possession. Ryan tries to calm her down as Aidan tells him that he was able to locate an address on Richie. Ryan kisses his wife and promises her that he will do everything he can to bring Emma back safely and the two men take off to follow their lead. Tad shows up and offers comfort and support to JR while Adam arrives in short order and makes a beeline to Krystal. She is busy berating herself for not knowing the truth about Richie before singing his praises, and assumes that Adam is there to cut her down as well. He looks at her longingly and she is surprised that he isn't blowing his stack. He assures her that he only came over out of worry for Babe and his grandson. Krystal looks at him oddly and knows that he has more to say. Colby comes over and gives him support, and Adam finally tells her that seeing the pain his son is over not knowing where Little A is brings home what he did to her when he tried to give Jenny away to adoptive parents. He apologizes and tells her that he doesn't expect forgiveness. She thanks him for it but says that things won't magically be okay between them because he confessed to his wrongdoing. Adam starts to protest but then, realizing that she has a valid point, silently slinks away to another part of the bar.
Across the room, Greenlee tries to be an attentive friend and to help Annie in any way that she can. Annie asks if Greenlee had ever spoken to her brother and she admitted that she had, a few times when he was behind the bar. Annie asks about the impression he made on her, and Greenlee relates a time when she gave him some sort of sob story about being upset when she was little and having some extravagant meal for lunchtime made by the house staff as comfort food. He said he understood and proceeded to go back to the kitchen and bring her a peanut butter sandwich and a glass of milk – something that she would have appreciated as a little girl. Hearing that, Annie tells her that Richie would do that kind of thing to set himself up as a good guy. Greenlee then apologizes for all of the cracks that she made about the perfect life she believed Annie had growing up. Julia shows up then and immediately apologizes to Annie for her part in Emma's predicament. Shortly thereafter, an officer arrives and tells them that they have put an APB out on Annie's brother and that they have their best men working on it. He then wants to talk to Annie about her assessment of her brother. She quickly tells him that Richie is dangerous and should not be left alone with a woman and two small children. Then, her phone rings and she finds the bodyguard on the line. Annie is elated that he finally got back to her, but that joy is short lived when she realizes that he didn't accompany Emma on the picnic.
Back at the cabin, Babe and Richie give in to the idea that they need to stay put and ride out the storm. While gazing upon the sleeping children, Babe is inspired to tell him about what an amazing mom Annie is. Richie takes it all in and initially seems like he wants to tell her the truth about who he is. She tells him that she hopes that they have lots of time to spend together, so he shouldn't feel pressured to let her in until he is ready. He tells her that he doesn't want to mess up the process because he really likes her and doesn't want to scare her away. However, before he can confess anything weighing on his soul, the kids wake up. Babe tells them that they just have to wait for the rain to stop before they can leave and Emma astutely notes that the adults managed to miss the rain's end. Babe then tells them that they can go home but Richie mysteriously says that he's not sure he wants to.
Aidan and Ryan arrive at the Pine Cone and talk briefly to manager about the man who had been staying in the room rented to Richie. The man tells them that the tenant was always quiet and always paid his rent on time. The two men thank him and send him on his way. Aidan notices that for a single guy, the room is a little too neat. They realize that it's a message from Richie – he knew they were coming and he made sure that they wouldn't find anything that could help them find him. While Ryan rants on about how much he will make Richie pay for what he'd done, Aidan finds a picture tucked away from plain site. He shows it to Ryan – it's a picture taken of Emma running on the beach. They know that it was planted specifically for them but are amazed at how perfectly Richie was able to execute his plans, all while living right under their noses. Ryan admits that Emma represents all that Richie believes Annie stole from him. Aidan notes that his next move will be to check in with his men while Ryan says that he will head back to the bar so that he can be with his wife.
A short time later, Babe shows up at the Comeback with her son in her arms. Everyone rejoices that both she and Little A are safe and crowd around her to wrap her in their loving arms. The young woman is confused and begs someone to tell her what she missed. At the same time, Annie realizes that her daughter hadn't followed Babe in. She runs outside and looks around wildly, screaming Emma's name. As she takes the next deep breath, Richie interrupts her by delivering a low greeting to his sister. Annie turns fearfully and sees her long lost brother with Emma in his arms.
