Colby frantically paced around her home as she prepared for the deposition in Adam's lawsuit against Fusion. Adam coaxed Colby into what she needed to say so Pete would not get in trouble. Erica came to see Adam as Jack led Colby out of the home for questioning. Adam told Erica that Jackson was representing Fusion in the lawsuit. Jackson asked Colby if she was intoxicated the night of the Fusion party. Colby said no, but felt lightheaded as if she had something to drink. Colby said she did not remember what happened the rest of the night. Erica snuck out to speak to Jackson. She told Jackson that the only reason he took the Fusion case was to get closer to her. Jackson said he only took the case to save Greenlee and Kendall. He told Erica she should be looking out for her daughter, too. Erica said she had her reasons for befriending Adam.

Inside the Chandler mansion, Adam's lawyer said Jackson was painting Colby out to be an alcoholic. Adam said he wanted to push for a trial. Pete told Adam that Colby's reputation could still be ruined in a trial. Adam said he needed to get the Fusion women practically begging for him to take over the company. Pete said he didn't think anyone needed to fight dirty to be a businessman. Pete told Colby what Adam's plans were for Fusion. He said it would be best to tell Kendall and Greenlee the truth about Bella, but Colby insisted it would hurt her to see Pete go to jail. Pete said he only joined forces with Adam to be near Colby. He told Colby how much he liked her, and to his surprise, she called him sweet. Adam was not happy when he saw the two getting close. He wanted Pete to leave, but Colby insisted Pete stay. She told her father Pete was her guest and she wanted him with her.

Aidan returned to the apartment he shared with Greenlee. He told Greenlee he just needed a change of clothes. Aidan told Greenlee to stop lying about her feelings for Ryan. Greenlee admitted she was not sure about what exactly she felt for Ryan. Aidan said he was partly to blame for the demise of their relationship. After all, Aidan said he knew Greenlee and Ryan shared a strong bond. Greenlee asked Aidan for more time to sort out her feelings, but Aidan said in the end, she would always love Ryan. Aidan told he was tired of trying to fight for their marriage.

Aidan went to the new house that was supposed to be his and Greenlee's home. He told the construction workers that he was no longer working on the house. After kicking the workers out, he hit a sledgehammer through the walls.

Kendall watched adoringly as Zach played with Ian. Kendall snuggled with her husband and son, wondering how Zach convinced Annie to give up custody of Emma. Zach said Annie realized she needed to provide a stable environment for Emma. Kendall found Greenlee looking at a mess the FDA left behind at Fusion. The FDA had seized the company's computers and files, but failed to clean up after themselves. Greenlee said she did not have enough energy to fight the lawsuit because of her failed marriage to Aidan. She even blamed Kendall for what happened with Aidan. Having Kendall constantly tell her how much she loved Ryan didn't help, either, Greenlee added. She told Kendall about the bug he planted in her earrings to overhear conversations with Ryan.

Annie visited Ryan, but was worried when Emma did not come running out. Ryan said Emma was being picked up from school by a sitter. He wanted to know why Annie suddenly thought Emma was better off with him. Ryan said the decision made him think she was hiding something. Annie told Ryan her life was chaos. She had no job, lacked a permanent home, and was being stalked. Annie asked Ryan if Greenlee spent the night with Ryan since she saw Greenlee at the courthouse. Ryan said Greenlee did not stay with him. Ryan thought it would be best to establish rules for Annie's visitation. Annie said Ryan had taken enough from her, and she would not agree to supervised visits. Ryan said he would adjust the visits once Annie got better. After Annie left, Emma and the babysitter came home. Ryan explained his separation from Annie to Emma, but reminded Emma they both loved her.

Annie went to see Adam. He already had her bags packed at the door. Annie asked Adam if she could stay at the house a few more days. Adam said her time was up. Suddenly, a limo driver showed up to take Annie to her new home. Annie assumed the orders came from Ryan. She arrived at the seaside hotel and waited for Ryan to arrive. Instead, Zach showed up. He paid for the hotel so she could try to get back on her feet. Kendall overheard Annie ask Zach if she should tell the cops she killed Richie, or if Zach was planning to do it for her.

Jackson found Greenlee alone at Fusion. Greenlee updated her father on the latest Fusion drama and possible end of her marriage. Jackson said he needed to talk to Kendall about Erica's involvement with Adam. Greenlee said Erica was cozying up to Adam to try to get information from him. She went the house Aidan was building, but immediately started sobbing when she noticed the mangled wall.

A "Redbook" reporter found Erica on the Fusion elevator. She got a quick quote from Erica. Erica found Jackson looking through Fusion files. Jackson asked Erica why she didn't tell him about her plans to spy on Adam. Erica said it felt nice to know Jackson still cared about her.

Once alone, Aidan went to visit Ryan carrying a gun.

In San Diego, Babe and JR spent a romantic morning watching the sunrise and talking about their future. JR surprised Babe with the news that he had made arrangements for them to get married at 6:35 p.m. Babe was overjoyed with the idea of starting their new life at the very same time that they had first started their life together, years earlier. JR's other gift to Babe was help planning their wedding. Babe was delighted and chose a dress and flowers but she insisted on using their wedding bands from their first wedding. JR thought it was a wonderful idea. As they basked in their bliss, Babe offered to give JR a special gift. When JR asked Babe what she had in mind, Babe answered, "A baby."

At Fusion, Erica was convinced that Jackson still cared for her. Jack didn't deny it, which didn't seem to sit well with Carmen when she walked in and heard the tail end of their conversation. When he saw his date, Jack let Erica know that he had dinner plans with Carmen. Erica pretended nonchalance as she breezed out and wished them well. Once Erica was gone, Carmen accused Jack of having feelings for Erica.

Outside, on the patio of the Chandler mansion, Adam threatened to reveal all the sordid details of Pete's role in sabotaging Bella perfume. Colby refused to stand by while her father bullied Pete, and spoke up on Pete's behalf. She warned Adam that if he followed through with his threat, she would expose Adam's role in the entire fiasco. It appeared that Adam didn't appreciate the tables being turned on him. He stormed off to the living room where his attorney, Barry, was waiting for him. Adam ordered Barry to subpoena Babe and JR.

Erica overheard the exchange and, after Barry left, accused Adam of using the lawsuit as an excuse to force his son to return home. Initially, Adam denied the charge and defended his actions, but Erica didn't believe him. She reminded Adam of the upcoming holidays and painted a bleak picture of the loneliness that Adam would face without JR and little Adam. Adam became choked up as he admitted that he did want his son and grandson to return home because he missed them. Erica was sympathetic and understanding. She reminded Adam that their children were adults with lives of their own who needed their independence. She also pointed out that as much as they both loved their children, they had fulfilling lives separate from their children. Erica advised Adam to allow his son to live his own life.

Their heart-to-heart talk led to a discussion about Fusion. Erica readily admitted that she had warned Kendall that Fusion was not doing well. Adam seemed pleased to hear Erica's confession and invited her to dinner so that they could discuss things further. Erica agreed, but requested a few moments to freshen up. Shortly after Adam stepped out of the room, Carmen entered.

Carmen didn't mince words. She asked Erica what she had walked in on between Erica and Jackson at Fusion. Erica didn't appear interested in calming Carmen's fears. She accused Carmen of using Erica's connections to get out of jail. Meanwhile Carmen felt that Erica was using Carmen to play games with Jack. Erica was outraged by the suggestion and pointed out that a true friend would never have gotten involved with her friend's husband. Things quickly escalated from there, and the confrontation turned physical. Eventually, Adam was forced to stop the fight. When the ladies were separated, Carmen was left with a torn dress.

Adam was not happy with Carmen's conduct and promptly fired her. Carmen was unrepentant and stormed out, letting Adam know that she didn't have any intention of working for Erica's ex husband. After Carmen left, Erica thanked Adam for his support. Adam let Erica know that he would do anything for her. Erica appreciated the sentiment but told him that she didn't, for a moment, believe that Adam would do anything for her. While Erica walked away to freshen up, Adam received a call from Barry. Barry let Adam know that the subpoenas, which Adam had requested, were served.

At the Slater home, Kendall was determined to call the police when she discovered that Annie had killed Richie. Zach stopped Kendall from following through on the threat. He explained that he had an agreement with Annie and she had held up her end of the bargain. Kendall wasn't swayed until Annie threatened to take Zach down with her if Kendall called the police. Annie said that if she had to, she would testify that Zach had helped her to kill Richie. Annie then reminded Kendall what a convincing liar she could be when she was pushed. Zach nipped Annie's threats in the bud. He pointed out that Annie wasn't in a position to make threats. Zach also warned her that if she tried to cause trouble, he would make sure Annie disappeared for good. Annie's expression sobered and she quickly left without another word.

Kendall realized that Zach's motivation had not been to protect Annie, but rather to spare Emma a life without a mother, a fate Zach had suffered as a child. Touched by Zach's compassion for Emma, Kendall told Zach about Greenlee and Aidan's split and that Greenlee had advised Kendall not to take Zach for granted. Kendall admitted that she had been doing just that, taking Zach for granted. She apologized to Zach and the two kissed. Soon their kiss led to more and they made love.

Annie turned up at the boathouse where Emma soon joined her. Emma was thrilled to see her mother and ran into Annie's arms. Annie was surprised to see her daughter. When Corrina walked up, Annie demanded to know how Emma could have gotten so far ahead of her nanny. Annie reminded Corrina that she was being stalked and that Emma could be at risk. Corrina apologized but asked for Annie to return Emma to her. When Annie seemed reluctant to turn her daughter over to the nanny, Corrina was forced to point out that she had strict instructions from Ryan that only scheduled visits were permitted. Annie appeared frustrated as she released Emma back into Corrina's care. After Corrina and Emma left, Annie remained behind in the boathouse for a few minutes until something spooked her and she dashed off.

Colby and Pete returned to Courtland Manor after their confrontation with Adam. Pete was impressed with the way that Colby had stood up to her father. As they talked, Colby noticed that the doorbell kept ringing. Opal soon joined them and it was clear that she was very rattled. Opal told the teens that she had fallen asleep beneath one of the hair dryers. While she slept, she had a disturbing dream of a heavy fog, screams, and sirens. The doorbell ringing had awoken Opal. Opal was convinced that the doorbell, which continued to ring, portended doom. Pete felt that the doorbell was stuck as a result of wind, not impending destruction. Colby made the observation that air was still, not windy.

A short time later, as Pete attempted to fix the doorbell, Annie stopped by. She asked Pete if his offer to stay with him was still open. Pete appeared somewhat reluctant to invite Annie inside, but she was desperate. She pleaded with him and told Pete that she had nowhere else to go. She didn't want to leave town because she needed to stay close to her daughter. Annie insisted that she was being stalked and, since Ryan refused to believe her, Annie was the only person who could protect her daughter.

Opal overheard part of the conversation and joined Pete and Annie. By that time, they were gathered in the foyer. Opal told Annie that Annie had every reason to be worried. Opal went on to warn both of them that something bad was about to happen. Just then, the doorbell rang. When Pete opened the door, the porch was empty.

Aidan was sitting in Ryan's apartment holding a gun. Ryan urged Aidan to put the gun down, but Aidan refused. Aidan wasn't surprised when Greenlee walked in a few minutes later. He demanded that his wife admit that she had loved Ryan all along. Greenlee didn't. She saw the gun and tried to talk to Aidan in the hopes of calming her distraught husband. When Aidan realized that Ryan and Greenlee thought he meant to use the gun on Ryan, Aidan clarified things. He handed Ryan the gun and asked his nemesis to shoot him. Aidan assured Ryan that it wouldn't be considered murder because Greenlee had already killed Aidan with her betrayal. Ryan didn't shoot Aidan, which only enraged Aidan further. As Aidan walked out of the apartment, he wished Greenlee and Ryan happiness together.

Greenlee was upset after Aidan's departure. While she talked of her guilt, Greenlee let it slip that she loved Ryan. Ryan was surprised by the confession and asked her to repeat what she had said. Greenlee didn't want to, but Ryan pushed her until Greenlee finally told Ryan, "I love you and always have." Ryan's face lit up with joy and as he pulled Greenlee into his arms. However, Greenlee didn't seem happy with the admission and pulled away from him. She told him that loving him didn't change anything; they were both still married to other people. Ryan disagreed; he believed that it changed everything. He said that what they felt for each other felt right to him and others recognized it, as well. Greenlee didn't see how any of that mattered. She asked Ryan if he had illusions of them hopping on his bike and riding off into the sunset.

Ryan told Greenlee that he didn't have all of the answers but he promised her that he would never leave her and he would strive to give her the love and commitment that she deserved. Greenlee was touched by the heartfelt words and the two kissed.

However, soon Greenlee's fear rose up again and she pulled away. She felt that she couldn't take a risk with Ryan after everything that they had been through. Before Ryan could respond, Emma came running into the apartment. She was excited that she had seen her mother and was eager to tell Ryan about it. Ryan was not pleased to hear about the incident. While Ryan questioned Corrina about what had happened, Greenlee quietly slipped out of the apartment. When Ryan realized that Greenlee had left, he started to follow her. He was in the doorway, ready to walk out of the apartment, when Emma called out and asked Ryan to read her a story. Ryan hesitated a moment, but then returned to the apartment and closed the door.

Nearby, Greenlee stood hidden in a corner and overheard the exchange between father and daughter.

Ryan banged on Greenlee's door. She yelled at him to go away, but he refused to leave. He proceeded to kick open her front door. She begged him to leave her alone, but he insisted that they needed to talk. He declared that they belonged together. She was upset and replied that they caused a lot of hurt. Ryan felt bad for Annie and Aidan, but still wanted a relationship with Greenlee. Greenlee reminded him that they also caused a lot of hurt for each other the last time they were a couple. She recalled Ryan riding off of a cliff because he wanted to flee their marriage. He admitted that he could not handle their intense relationship in the past, but he swore that he was ready to be with her wholeheartedly. She was skeptical. He grabbed her face to kiss her and she urged him to stop. Just then, Jackson entered and told Ryan to let go of his daughter. Jackson affirmed that Ryan abandoned Greenlee in the past, so he had no right to pursue her again. Ryan promised that he would never hurt her again, but Jackson did not believe him. Ryan tried to talk with Greenlee, but Jackson told him to shut up.

After Ryan left, Greenlee embraced her father. She confessed that she was in love with Ryan, not Aidan. She explained that Aidan was a caring man that she loved, but she did not love him in the same way that she loved Ryan. Jackson encouraged her to give Aidan another chance, but she said their marriage was over. She was distraught over hurting Aidan, like Ryan hurt her. Greenlee then ran out of her penthouse.

Kendall was asleep on the floor of her beach house. Zach woke her up by ringing a sliver bell in her ear. She opened her eyes and saw that Zach had brought her muffins for breakfast. She said that she wanted him, not the muffins, and they made love. Afterwards, Kendall wondered what they should do with the rest of their day. Zach joked that they were going to play naked volleyball. She laughed, but commented that something was missing. Just then, there was a knock at the door. Zach opened the door and the nanny brought Spike and Ian inside to see Kendall. She was elated to see her sons. Zach and Kendall played with their sons for the rest of the day. She noted that the day was perfect. He said that their lives could be even more perfect if they had another child. She explained that she was not ready to have another child yet. She wanted their lives to be more settled before they had another baby. He claimed that he understood, but he looked very disappointed.

Kendall heard crying outside of her front door. She opened it to find Greenlee sobbing. Greenlee proclaimed that she could not be happy with anyone, including Aidan and Ryan. Kendall hugged her.

The doorbell at Opal's house was ringing over and over again. Annie yelled for someone to fix the doorbell. Pete opened the front door and saw Colby standing there. Colby stated that she was the one ringing the bell constantly. Colby then noted that Annie looked as though she did not sleep all night. Annie explained that she could not sleep because she felt like someone was watching her. Opal entered the room and admitted that she was watching Annie all night because Opal had a bad dream. Opal said that she dreamt Annie was calling out for Emma, but could not find her. Annie was worried, so Opal urged her to make sure Emma was safe. Pete and Colby assured Annie that Opal was a little crazy and that she should not fear for Emma's safety due to Opal's visions.

Opal informed Pete and Colby that she had her worst vision yet. Opal rushed to The Comeback and the two teenagers followed her.

Corinna and Emma were playing in Ryan's penthouse. Emma wanted to go to the park to see a puppet show, but Corinna said that the weather was getting bad. Ryan came home and Corinna explained that Emma was demanding to go to the park. Just then, Annie entered the apartment and overheard Emma's desire to go out. Annie stated that the weather was not nice enough to play outside. Corinna took Emma into the kitchen so Ryan and Annie could speak privately. Annie urged Ryan to keep a watchful eye on Emma, especially because she suspected someone of stalking her. He insisted that Annie was not being stalked. He further stated that he was protecting Annie by keeping Emma away from her. After Annie left, Emma yelled that she wanted to go to the park. Ryan gave in and told Corinna to take Emma.

Ryan got in his car in a hurry. He was speeding and got pulled over by a cop. Ryan was impatient and rude, so the cop asked him to step outside his vehicle. Ryan was very annoyed and punched the cop in the face.

Frankie and Randi arrived at the Comeback to meet Jesse and Angie for breakfast. Frankie and Randi saw Jake and Amanda first. Amanda was hungover and still slightly drunk from the night before. She sarcastically stated that she was "celebrating" the demise of Bella and her bank account.

Taylor entered the bar and announced that she had received her papers to return to Iraq. Amanda confessed that she was glad Taylor was leaving. Randi offered to take Amanda to the restroom because she looked sick. Jake apologized to Taylor for getting involved in her personal life and making her talk about difficult topics. Taylor was not annoyed with him. In fact, she said she would miss him. Amanda came back from the restroom and looked terrible. So, Jake and Taylor offered to take her home.

Tad found tarot cards behind the bar and asked Krystal why she had them. She admitted that Opal and her ominous predictions had her worried. Tad assured her that Opal should not be taken seriously.

Jesse, Angie, Krystal, and Tad were sitting at a table together. Jesse received a call and excused himself. Tad and Krystal exchanged incredulous glances. Angie noticed the stares and promised them that Jesse was trustworthy. She affirmed that she trusted her husband completely.

Natalia was outside of the Comeback. Jesse told her to stop following him. She thanked him for calling her mother. He said that her mother sounded fine over the phone, but Natalia instated that her mother needed help. She begged him to go home with her. Jesse agreed to see her mother later that night. Just then, Frankie approached them. Natalia left and Jesse claimed that he was talking to her about a police matter. Frankie seemed to believe the story.

Annie found Jesse at the bar. She pleaded with him for help catching her stalker. He said that he had no proof that someone was stalking her, so he could not help her. Meanwhile, Aidan overheard Annie's request to Jesse. Aidan, who was drunk, told her that Ryan and Greenlee drove her crazy, just like they drove him crazy.

Ryan punched a police officer after he was pulled over. The cop was unconscious and Ryan looked nervous, so he helped wake up the officer. The cop immediately handcuffed Ryan and called for backup. Jesse arrived on the scene and asked why Ryan was being arrested. Ryan admitted that he punched the officer. Jesse chastised Ryan for constantly getting into trouble. Jesse urged Ryan to go home to his daughter, especially because Annie was worried Emma was in danger. Ryan assured Jesse that Emma was safe. Then, Jesse was informed over his radio that a tornado watch was in effect for Pine Valley. Jesse told the cop to make sure that everyone in the town was off the roads. Jesse proceeded to let Ryan go with a warning. Ryan rushed off and Jesse assumed that he was going to find Greenlee.

Aidan and Annie were outside of the Comeback. Aidan stated that they were both "road kill from the Greenlee and Ryan truck." Annie affirmed that Aidan was in the same situation as her. He smugly noted that he was nothing like Annie. She asked if he would help her get Emma back. He refused to get involved in anything that involved Greenlee or Ryan. He further stated that he was moving on with his life. Annie was skeptical because she knew that Aidan was not over Greenlee.

Jesse ran into Aidan and Annie. He told them about the tornado watch. Annie feared for Emma's safety, but Jesse informed her that Ryan said the little girl was safe. Annie asked if Emma was with Ryan and Jesse said no. Aidan assumed that Ryan was searching for Greenlee.

Annie broke into Ryan's apartment to look for Emma. Annie saw a newspaper that was opened to the movie listings. She realized that Corinna had taken Emma to a movie and rushed to the theater. Corinna and Emma exited the theater and Annie accosted them. After Annie and Corinna argued about Emma's safety, they realized the little girl was gone. Annie worried that her stalker had kidnapped Emma.

Erica visited Adam at his mansion. She scolded Adam for using subpoenas to manipulate JR into returning from San Diego. Just then, JR, Babe, and Little Adam entered the home. JR was anxious to get their depositions finished, so they could return to San Diego. Erica revealed that Adam was using the lawsuit to get JR to come home. JR asked if that was true. Adam confessed that he was upset with how they left things. Adam pleaded with his son to stay in Pine Valley. JR was aggravated that Adam lied to him. JR declared that he was going to stay at the Pine Valley Inn, not the mansion.

After JR, Babe, and Little Adam left, Adam threw a glass across the room. He exclaimed that JR was a pig-headed fool. He admitted that he missed JR so much it hurt. He then blamed Babe for turning his son against him. Erica consoled Adam by suggesting that they take a trip to New York together. In turn, he suggested that they go to the Caribbean instead. She agreed, so Adam text messaged Colby to tell her that he and Erica were leaving town. Meanwhile, Erica called Kendall to let her know that she was about to go away with Adam to find out more information for her.

Adam and Erica were about to leave when the power went out in the mansion due to the storm. As Adam searched for a flashlight, they saw a person run into the mansion's secret passageway. Adam and Erica were determined to find out who was in the house, so they went into the passageway. They opened the door to a secret room and were alarmed to see that someone was living there. They found food, newspaper clippings of JR and Babe, and Little Adam's football. They wondered if Annie was telling the truth about her stalker. Then, the door slammed shut behind them and they were locked in the room.

Opal, Pete, and Colby went to the Comeback. Opal strongly encouraged Krystal to close the bar and warned that death was at the door. Krystal looked concerned, but Tad yelled at Opal to stop frightening everyone. Opal then grabbed her chest and collapsed. Angie and Frankie ran to her and administered CPR. They restored Opal's pulse just as an ambulance arrived. Tad felt guilty for yelling at his mother. Tad said that he was going to the hospital with Opal, so he asked Pete to stay with Colby.

Angie, Frankie, Randi, Krystal, Babe, JR, Little Adam, and Cathy were at the Comeback. Jesse informed everyone that the tornado watch was upgraded to a warning. They prepared to spend the night at the bar.

Natalia entered the bar and Jesse looked nervous. She wanted to go see her mother. He explained that they could not go anywhere because of the tornado. Angie saw them talking and asked what was going on between them.

JR told Colby about his encounter with Adam. Colby worried that Adam was upset, so she and Pete went to the mansion to check on him. When they got to the mansion, the lights were out.

Kendall tried to comfort Greenlee, but Greenlee was distraught. Greenlee cried and explained that she could not make it work with Aidan or Ryan. Kendall disagreed and urged Greenlee to give Ryan another chance. Zach entered the room and saw Greenlee crying. He quipped that she must be talking about Ryan if tears were involved. As Kendall made tea, Zach poured Greenlee a glass of liquor. She declined it, so he drank it. She confided that she did not know what to do about her love for Ryan. He told her that she needed to make her own decisions and not allow Kendall or Jackson to make them for her. She agreed, and left.

Kendall and Zach played board games. She gloated about winning and said that she wanted s'mores as her prize. Zach left the beach house to buy groceries. After he left, Kendall noticed that the weather was getting very bad. She wished that Zach had not left.

Ryan found Greenlee at their "special place." Greenlee said that she wanted to be alone to think. He professed his love for her and begged her to give their love a second chance. Ryan held out his hand and Greenlee grabbed it. Then, the clouds parted and a tornado formed in the sky.

Friday, October 17, 2008

After Jesse and Natalia narrowly escaped having their secret uncovered by Angie, Jesse was saved further sputtering when the door to The Comeback was blown open. He ran over to help JR move a machine in place in an attempt to keep it from happening again. He then checked in with the dispatcher and got updates about where the tornado had touched down. After he ordered everyone in his squad to take cover, he updated everyone in the bar the best he could. Then, as Natalia paced the floor while she tried to make a connection via phone, Angie surmised that the young woman should be pitied because of how she'd been abandoned by the man in her life. Jesse felt it hit too close to home, responded harshly, and said that they couldn't pass judgment without knowledge of the other side. They were interrupted by another call from the station, and when he heard that two more clouds had touched down, he realized that the report wasn't something the children should hear. He walked away from the group and Krystal and Babe suggested that they all have a party to help get them through. Kathy suggested a wedding and everyone thought that it was a good idea. Krystal took the children to the back to help prepare and Babe professed that she would marry her man anywhere.

Jesse rejoined the group when he finished his phone call and was on board when he found out that the staged wedding would help the children to be less afraid of the storm. He was tapped to be the minister, and everyone else got ready and took their places. JR quietly asked his bride if the setup had been everything she dreamed of and she told him that despite all that had happened, she still wished that her father and his could have been there to share the moment. JR acknowledged that he felt similarly but felt they could manage without those particular guests. The ceremony got underway and after the bride and groom reached the mock alter, Jesse began to deliver his lines in his normal dash-of-humor style. He settled down and asked Babe if she would take JR as her husband, but before she could answer, thunder boomed again and the lights went out.

JR and Jesse ran outside briefly and found that all the power in the vicinity had been knocked out. A car drove up and Annie flew toward them and begged for help. Jesse reamed her for driving around in the storm when he explicitly told her not to but understood when she told him that Emma had been kidnapped. She also informed him that she'd found Zach trapped in his car and asked Jesse to send out help for both cases. He told her that he would do so when it was safe enough to be outside. Just then, the wind died down, but they were still on alert because the sirens hadn't stopped. They heard the telltale sign of a cloud headed directly for them and ran into the bar to tell everyone to take cover. They all did the best they could but several of them had trouble hanging on.

When the worst was over, Krystal found that she and Kathy were mostly unscathed. She moved a piece of plaster that had landed on them and they crawled out into what was once the main part of the bar. They had a clear view of the outside as the walls had been torn away. They called out for others and one by one they started to appear. Angie first, then JR followed by Jesse. After he reunited with his wife, Jesse went to find his daughter. Randi reappeared next, and was glad to see Angie. Soon after, Jesse found Natalia and saw that she was unconscious, so he called his wife over to check for her vital signs. At the same time, JR found Babe and once she regained consciousness, she told them that Little A had been beneath her when the storm hit. JR found his son's hand but realized that he wouldn't be able to extract him from the rubble without moving a beam that had landed on Babe. Jesse rushed over to help but before they could move it, Angie noticed that Babe had lost a lot of blood and that the only thing that was keeping her with them was the pressure from the beam. Babe cried out and insisted that they think of her son first.

Aidan placed a desperate but unanswered call to Greenlee's cell phone, unaware that she'd dropped it at the gazebo where she and Ryan had stood moments before. At the same time, Greenlee and Ryan rushed into a shelter and she expressed how grateful she was that he had saved her from the tornado when he pulled her into a ditch. He said she could offer thanks later, after he warmed her up, and set about looking for matches. In the interim, she went up to the window to witness the storm, but wasn't conscious long enough to regret that decision, as the storm slammed back into the building and collapsed the wall on top of her. He managed to dig her out of the debris and she regained consciousness a short time later. He used his shirt to staunch the flow of blood from her wound as she mildly lamented the fact that she'd become the classic girl in distress. Ryan told her not to worry about that, as he would always be around to save her. He continued to look for matches but when he returned to her side, he revealed that he was only able to find an extra blanket. Then, as he checked her arm, Greenlee voiced that they had been selfish when they said that the tornado was a response to them still loving each other, despite the fact that the storm had hit all over town. Ryan agreed, and tried to convince himself that everyone had made it through as well as they had.

Kendall checked on her incessantly ringing doorbell but found that the storm outside was the culprit. As she closed herself back inside with her boys, she turned on the TV and found out about the tornado. She immediately got on the phone with Zach, who had just heard about the storm and had already turned and headed back in the direction of the house. She urged him to be careful, but he assured her that things weren't so bad since the winds had died down. Moments later, he looked out of his rear window and saw that a funnel cloud was close behind him. Unable to outrun it, he was helplessly sucked up into the spiral and tossed aside like garbage. Kendall called out his name but it was to no avail, as Zach lay unconscious behind the wheel. She hung up the phone and tried to call him back repeatedly but found that all of the circuits were down. Frustrated, she threw her phone to the side but then dialed back her outburst so as not to scare her sons. She assured them that Zach would be home soon, as the man himself started to come to in his totaled car. He felt his way around and found that as a cut wire sparked around him, exiting the vehicle would be harder than he thought.

After she watched Adam's attempt to use brute force to budge the door that had them locked in the tunnels, Erica asked for a chance to try. Adam moved out of her way, filled with disbelief that she could do a better job. She dug a hairpin out of her coif and set about trying to get the lock to release. Adam continued to fire words at her and spoiled her concentration, which caused her to lose control of the pin. They gave each other grief for a few moments, and then entertained several scenarios that could explain the mysterious occurrences in the house. Adam wondered if the stalker had been after Annie the whole time, but Erica reminded him that all of the clips the uninvited person had saved dealt with Babe.

Annie ran back out into the movie lobby and asked an usher if he'd spotted Emma. The usher told her that he hadn't and seemed unmoved by her plight as he coldly told her that they needed to lock up. Corrina ran back into the lobby just then, but without the little girl. Although Annie followed her instinctive urge to lash out and blame, she curtailed herself and told the young woman to go back to the penthouse and call if she found anything along the way.

Colby and Pete ran into the Chandler living room and while Colby begged the young genius to tell her what to do, he continued to prattle on about how amazing and cool the storm formations were. He wanted her to look out the window with him, but when she hesitated he told her that they only had to worry when they heard something that sounded like a freight train. As if in answer to his call, that sound filled the air and Pete yelled out that they needed to run. They got no farther than the foyer when the wind blew the front doors open and knocked Pete out cold.

After a few more sparks lit up the area near the driver's side of the car, Zach realized he would need to try to make his way out of the shattered passenger window. He used his shoe to check for live electricity that might have still been surging through the wires. He then heard a voice call out to see if he was all right, and although he said that they needed to stay back, Annie ran up to the car without a care and was thrown back when sparks emerged from the frayed ends. After she regained her footing, Zach commanded Annie to call 911. She ran back to her car and retrieved her phone but found that she couldn't get a signal. She then told him that she needed to find authorities so that they could help her find Emma. He instructed her to do that, and to ask them to shut the power off so that he could exit the car safely. She agreed and hurried back to her vehicle. As soon as she left, the sparks started again but this time, they connected with some gasoline that had leaked out of the car. Alarmed, Zach watched as a small puddle ignited. He took a chance and snaked his way out of another window, and tossed himself away from the vehicle just before the lethal combination exploded.

Kendall tried to maintain her calm as she sat with her sons but had to check the door again when the bell started to sound. She opened the door and was surprised at who she saw.

Erica was the first to notice a draft as it snuck its way into their holding cell. As they tried to figure out the origin, part of the room's construction gave way and its materials collapsed into the room. Meanwhile, Colby was able to rouse Pete at the front of the house and told him that the funnel cloud had hit the front yard. She then realized that he was faking and allowed him to get up by himself. He thanked her for coming back for him and she admitted that he'd grown on her in the last few months. Back in the tunnels, Adam discovered that the latest hit to the house had caused the lock to come undone and invited Erica to join him as he found out how the rest of the house had fared. However, when he ripped the door off of the hinges, the two of them saw that the tunnel outside had collapsed in on itself. Adam lit a candle and Erica suggested that he should make an attempt to dig them out. Adam told her that doing so would just kill him faster, and Erica asked if he thought they could die down there. Instead of an answer, they both watched as the candle extinguished, which signaled a lack of oxygen.

Aidan reached the gazebos and after he located Greenlee's abandoned phone, he panicked as he believed her to be buried underneath the debris that the storm had left behind. Unable to locate her body, Aidan continued to call her name into the wind.

Ryan was able to get a fire started and as they waited for it to warm them, they reflected back on other times they had weathered storms together. The shared telling of stories brought a smile to his face, which pleased Greenlee. They gazed into each other's eyes for a moment, and then kissed. The kiss was cut short when a tree branch slammed against the blown out window. Greenlee pulled herself in closer to Ryan and true to his word, he protectively shielded her. Aidan happened upon the structure at that moment, but before he could notify the duo inside to his presence, another funnel appeared and ripped the roof off of the structure. When the storm passed, Aidan was injured but able to move. An officer arrived on the scene and told him that he was lucky to be alive. He then asked Aidan if there had been anyone else in the structure when the storm hit, but Aidan was unable to answer.

Zach made his way back to the beach house but was distraught when he saw that one of the funnels had hit there as well. He called out for his wife but heard nothing in return. He then called out for his sons and after a moment he heard crying. He was able to figure out where they were and grabbed them into the safety of his arms, all while he wondered what had happened to Kendall. He put the boys back in the makeshift cove where they had been safe and resumed his search for Kendall. He happened upon a boot but when he turned over the body connected to it, he saw Bianca's face instead.
