She tells him about her plans for Hope, to give her back her memories of Gina in order to make her so preoccupied with her past, that she'll forget about Isaac and JT.

After they burst into Victor's hotel suite, the police handcuff Nicole to bring her to the station house for questioning. Victor orders her not to say anything and promises to get her some help. Still bleeding, a groggy Paul overhears them talking and realizes that Nicole is being held for his shooting and is pleased. The little girl from the docks spots him and notifies the police who then can't find any sign of him. Meanwhile, Paul falls into the bushes outside. As the kids from Salem remember their missing friends, Jan informs Mr. Woods that she's very ill and needs to leave. Belle panics when the water starts filling up the cavern. Brady worries about Belle and orders Chloe and Mimi to stop their bickering and find out if they landed on the right island. He then searches for some fruit to eat and remembers his sister and how much she means to him. As they walk down the beach, Mimi fears that nothing looks familiar which could mean they are lost.
When it rains, it pours, and Nicole is finding herself in a pretty deep puddle. A little girl has seen her shoot a man, and has told the Police.
Water is rising quickly as Belle, Shawn and Philip try to stay afloat. Brady, Chloe, and Mimi are searching for the trio, but Mimi can't remember which section of beach they were on when they fell in. Jan asks for help from a local doctor who tells her that he must tell her parents, and teachers. She insists he can't do that. He responds saying it is his duty.
Nicole insists the she didn't shoot her father, as she runs it through her mind again. Victor wants to see proof of a body and a weapon as they handcuff her to take her to jail.
Mimi remembers the spot where Kevin kissed her and made her feel like a "desired woman" for the first time in her life. She thinks she knows where to find Belle, and the others. The rain continues to fall as they bob in that dark pit that continues to fill up. Philip and Shawn convince Belle that she has to climb up to grab the piece of rope leading them to freedom. Belle grabs the rope, but falls back in. Shawn and Philip try to boost her spirit as they convince her to try again. Jan pleads with the doctor not to tell her parents. She tells him that she went to a bar, and things got carried away and she couldn't make him stop, but she's sure he gave her a disease. The doctor agrees to examine her, much to her relief, only to tell her that she has a venereal disease. Meanwhile, Mimi, Chloe, and Brady are going in circles trying to find Belle and the others, and finally Mimi says, "Wait! I'm getting something!" She recalls Shawn and Belle's escapades on the sand and remembers they have gone too far. They turn around and back track. Belle tries again, to reach the rope, and can't quite reach. After giving up again, she gives Shawn a good luck kiss to carry him through as he goes under water to search for a rope.
The police officer tells Victor to stand aside as he takes Nicole. Victor sees the body as they take Nicole out and tries to stall them saying, he isn't feeling well. Nicole interjects that he needs his heart medicine, and they take a different path to get it, leaving the body still hidden.
The doctor tells Jan that she has gonorrhea, and will also treat her for Chlamydia. He explains to her the importance of protected sex, and warns her that she needs more tests. Could she be pregnant? Jan tells him she knows her body, and knows there is no way for her to be pregnant. Mimi gets down on her knees and draws in the sand. Chloe and Brady have had about enough and ask her if they are going to go in circles all day. She explains she is trying to get her bearings, and admits to a frustrated Brady and Chloe that she doesn't know where they are at. Shawn manages to find a rope and hands Belle his grandmother's ruby. Philip and Shawn explain again, how to go about making a successful climb this time, and Belle gives it another shot. With the rope Shawn found attached to her waste, Belle makes a successful climb to a rocky landing. Chloe grabs Mimi, and asks her when she is going to get her pea brain to work. They start throwing punches and Brady runs over to see what the matter is just in time for Chloe to fall onto Brady, and in his arms. Mimi asks, "Are we having a private moment??"
Victor is still voicing his opinion that they need proof, and he insists they let Nicole go. They tell Victor that they can hold her for 24 hours, and by then they will have all the proof they need. Victor steps out of the room to make a phone call. It's time to hide a body.
Mimi finally remembers where she last saw Shawn, Belle, and Philip. They take off to go find them. Belle sees that she is almost to the top, and notices a hand reaching down to help her. She tells Shawn and Philip they've been found, and allows the hand to pull her up. Shawn and Philip hear her scream, and are still down in the pit, unable to help.
Victor goes back to where the body is, only to find it has disappeared.
