Cooper tells Georgie that he will go help her find Maxie. They look in several rooms but can't find her. Logan catches up to them and can't believe they are that worried about her. He tells Georgie that Maxie is a drama queen and is probably hoping for them to go look for her. Georgie gets very upset and attacks Logan with her fists and pummels him for saying nasty things about her sister when she could be in danger from Anthony Zacchara.

He agrees with her that he is insane and that there is something very liberating about not caring what people think of him and what he does to people.

Jason shows up in the room they are in and wonders why they are arguing when they should be staying with the others in a safe room. Lulu wants to help Johnny find his father and thinks she can be bait for him since Anthony wanted to kill her because he thought she was Johnny's new girlfriend. Jason agrees with Johnny that Lulu should not make herself a target for Anthony but thinks that Johnny is going after his father to protect him and so they aren't exactly on the same side. Johnny tells Jason that he isn't going after his father to protect him but to kill him himself. Jason grabs Lulu's arm as she starts to argue with him about making her own choices and Johnny reluctantly follows them. Meanwhile, Liz, Paige, and Spinelli find one of Zacchara's men laying wounded on the ground outside the barn and drag his body inside. Liz and Paige try to tend to his gunshot wounds and ask him who he is and why he is there. The man manages to say one word, "Zacchara" before he dies. Paige ends up talking about her sister Jolene, and how she ended up being someone she wouldn't recognize now since she was such a good and kind sister to her. Liz explains about her own life experiences lately and how you can find yourself doing things you never thought you would do and end up being more surprised about yourself than anyone else. Soon after that Jason shows up at the barn with Lulu and Johnny. He puts Spinelli in charge of protecting Lulu and everyone and to make sure Lulu stays there and doesn't try to leave. They tell Jason about the dead gunmen and what he said. Liz hugs Jason when she sees him with Lulu. Jason hugs her back but then pulls away to take care of business. Lulu starts to protest what Jason is doing by making her stay there but Jason ignores her and leaves with Johnny. Lulu tries to use her charm to persuade Spinelli to go with her to find Anthony. Liz and Paige try to reason with Lulu about staying there with them and letting Jason handle things. Lulu ignores them and tries to get Spinelli to let her go.

Spinelli hits her over the head with the butt of the gun and knocks her unconscious. He feels really bad about it but tells her while she is laying unconscious that he had no choice but to keep her from getting hurt. He brings her to another room and sits her down in a chair. Lulu wakes up but doesn't remember much about what happened. She thinks she got hit in the head with a tree branch and Spinelli goes along with it so he doesn't have to tell her what he really did to knock her out. Lulu tells him she is sleepy and looks like she is going to go back to sleep but Spinelli tells her it isn't a good idea for her to go to sleep if she has a concussion and promises to stay there and take good care of her. She smiles at him and tells him he is a great friend to her and she wouldn't know what she would do without him. Later, Paige makes a comment to Liz when they are alone about Jason being her "guy" who is a professional who she is sure can keep them safe. Liz corrects her about Jason being her guy and that what she saw isn't what she thinks and asks her to act like she never saw her hug Jason earlier.

Georgie asks Cooper why Jerry called him "Number 3." Cooper doesn't answer her and changes the subject. Georgie wants them to keep looking for Maxie. Cooper tells her that they can't just roam around the rooms looking for Maxie and that Maxie would want them to stay with the others and help keep people safe. Carly wonders around and comes face to face with one of the gunmen looking for Zacchara. The gunman aims his gun at Carly.

Jason shows up to protect her and Sam also shows up as well with a gun of her own. Jason and Sam look at each other and Sam nods her head to let him know she is ready to cover for him while he shoots at the men. They both end up shooting the gunmen as Carly watches them. After they take care of the gunmen, Jason asks Carly if she is o.k. She tells him she is fine and asks him if he is okay. Sam feels unappreciated by them for helping them and lets them know it. Carly accuses Sam of wanting a pat on the back from Jason, hoping he will forgive her because she helped them. Jason tells Carly that Sam already knows why he will never be able to forgive her.
