Desperate to find Bo, Julie spots an old friend at the docks and he flies her in his helicopter to Bo's boat. Julie then advises Bo that Gina had her appendix taken out while Hope didn't. Realizing the dead woman might not be Hope, Bo climbs up the helicopter ladder. However, when Shawn tries, he flashes back to the moment when Gina ordered him to jump to his death and finds he can't move. Bo finally helps him into the helicopter. Doug manages to stop the cremation for a few minutes and then gets into a fight to delay it further. The police show and soon after, Bo arrives and manages to stop the coffin before it goes into the fire. Brandon upsets Nicole when he brings their mother to Titan to visit with her.

After they argue about Nicole, Austin stuns Sami by admitting that he feels like they are already married because of their many arguments. He then pulls her to him for a passionate kiss and boasts that the only way for their relationship to work is if they stop living together. Still upset at her brother for bringing their mother to Titan, Nicole argues with Brandon about their childhood. When she claims that Abe helped their mother every time he was called to their house, Brandon argues the opposite is true. Upset to hear that Victor is trying to find Stefano, Kate warns him about the danger he's facing. He insists that he must do this and suggests that if she can't allow him to do what he wants, then she should reconsider his proposal. She becomes more upset when Victor decides to consider Vivian's new business proposal. Nicholas tries to calm Kate down as he escorts her back to her office and asks her if she's decided to end things with Victor. Bo examines "Hope's" body for a scar from an appendectomy but fails to find one. Though he now believes this is Hope's body, Greta examines the body herself and finds a protrusion that may be a scar after all.
