Henderson greets a soaking Carrie and Austin at the mansion. The two decide to go to the living room to warm up. There, they talk about their relationship. Carrie is still venting that Sami is up to her old tricks, but apologizes to Austin for always talking negatively about Sami to him. He admits that they both were to blame for their breakup, but it's time to move on. He does say that Carrie is still a good woman. Nicole comes sauntering in, drinking glass after glass of mimosas (orange juice and champagne). Austin is getting worried that Sami and Lucas haven't returned from their trip to the capitol. Jogging her memory, Nicole updates them with the news from Mickey that Sami refused to sign the custody agreement. Austin quickly assumes that Lucas must have been so angry that he did something to Sami but Carrie doubts this and guesses that they simply came home separately. Austin begins making phone calls to find out where the two are, as Carrie and Nicole look on. He yells at Nicole, wondering if she is the least bit worried about her husband, but she shrugs and says that maybe the power was out where they were and they could not call. Austin worries when he receives word that the helicopter Sami and Lucas used failed to come back to the airport and may have gone down in the storm.
In the mountain cave, Sami panics when she comes to and is alone. Her anxiety turns to fury when she figures that Lucas has left her there to die. As the storm intensifies, a rockslide hits the cave and Sami frantically moves out of the way of the falling rocks. She hears a noise and calls out Lucas' name. He has returned. He gives her the bad news that his cell phone no longer works nor does the radio in what's left of the helicopter. Sami begins to berate Lucas, saying that at least Austin and Will are worried about her and have probably started a search party, but that no one would care if he was gone. Lucas says that Will loves him, along with his mom, Alice and even Maggie. Sami says it's interesting he didn't say Nicole's name. She knows that Nicole could care less about Lucas and that she's probably counting her millions because Lucas is missing. Lucas has had enough of Sami's mouth, and tells her to shut up. He says that any other sane person would have left a lying, conniving bitch to die in the mountains without any other thought. But he came back for her because he has compassion. This shuts Sami up and the two, to stay warm, hold each other. In the distance, a wolf's howl can be heard.
Gina is holding the CD of Hope's memories on it, pleased that her plan is starting to take shape. Kurt arrives, and Gina hides the CD.

Elsewhere, Rolf tells a furious Stefano that the CD is missing. As Kurt rifles through all his papers and other CDs, Stefano thinks Bo may have stolen it. He calls Bart on the cell phone and wants him to find Bo now. Bart calls back and tells Stefano that Bo was in jail, but just got released. Rolf thinks perhaps Stefano took it with him when he went to the other room to talk to Marlena. The two leave, and that gives Kurt the opportunity to return the CD. Rolf and Stefano return and they find the CD.
Out in the Paris alley, Bo holds Hope, he asks for her forgiveness for all he put her through. He blames himself for all of this because when she came back from Maison Blanche, he should have known she was Hope. Instead, because he did not believe in their love, he turned to Billie.
