In San Cristobel:
At the Palace, Edmund has taken Reva through the secret passage in her room and is holding her at gunpoint when Josh and Olivia arrive in her quarters. All they find is the bloody dagger that Reva used to stab Edmund in the leg in an attempt to get away from him. Josh and Olivia break through the locked passage and follow it out. Cassie is still trying to detain Richard who gets by her and through the palace. Richard comes into Reva's room and finds the picture of Jon and puts it in his jacket pocket still thinking it is Shayne.
Beth is still harassing Jim until he spills the whole plan to save Reva from the Prince and about the explosion. He asks her time and time again to go back to the hotel and he would meet up with her as soon as he could but she wouldn't leave. After she was convinced about what Jim was telling her, she wanted to stay and help him. He pulled her by a guard to get her to the exit and dropped the remote device that set off the explosives that made pandemonium break out at the ball. Beth "fell" and retrieved the device. The guard informs Cassie that Princess Catherine has disappeared. Richard is upset and looking for her. Meanwhile Edmund has a gun pointed at Reva. She tried to negotiate with Edmund while she leaves her bracelet behind for Josh to find. Shortly after, Josh finds the bracelet. He and Olivia know they are on her trail. Jim and Beth are still bantering back and forth about her leaving San Cristobel and back to Springfield. Cassie comes up and tells Jim that Reva was gone so Josh must have gotten to her. Richard overheard her and followed her out of the palace.
Now out of the view of the palace, Reva wants to know if Edmund intends on letting her go but he only answers, "We'll have to see about that."

At the Santos Estate...SC:

They try to talk to Michelle to get her to spill information and she finally does. She offers to help them. Danny tells them that he is going to return to the grill where he has been cooking dinner for he and Michelle. He went out while Michelle took the officers over to the television and explained that she had told Danny that their getting Cable free all this time was illegal and that they would be caught. The officers got angry and started tearing their suitcases apart. When they realized the suitcases were empty, they commented on the tip that said the bonds where in the suitcases. Meanwhile, Danny barbecued the documents to a charcoal briquette. The Officers leave and Danny and Michelle think of the expensive barbecue they just had. Michelle is still upset about the whole situation and picks up their argument where they had left off earlier. Carmen calls and Danny tells her that he burned the bonds.

    In San Cristobel:
    Richard is arguing about where Reva is with Josh and Cassie. Olivia comes in and Richard berates her being there after her multi- attempts on Reva's life. Olivia explains that it is all Edmund behind his shooting, Reva's stabbing, all of it. Richard refuses to believe her but between her and Josh they get through to him.
    Richard drops the picture of Jon and after Josh assures him that it is not Shayne, Olivia tells Richard to turn the picture over. He discovers that it is his son, Jon. He talks to Olivia and wants to know why she kept him away from him all these years. She tells him that Jon is with her sister and is safe.
    Richard says that he is going to go search for Reva and Josh insists that he is going to go with him. He can find the clues like the bracelet Reva left behind. The two decided to work together to bring Reva back.
    Edmund has taken Reva to a cave with shackles in it. Reva provokes him telling him that he isn't half the man his brother is and that he is only mad because he wants her and hates that Richard had her. Edmund grabs her and kisses her and she knocked him down when he was off guard. He grabs her and throws her to the floor knocking her out.
    Edmund (looking maniacal) calls Richard up and tells him that he will meet with him the next morning. Richard tells him that he will give him anything he wants to release Reva unhurt. After getting off the phone, Edmund secretly wished that Richard and Josh aren't able to meet his demands so that he can kill her.

    At Drew's Apartment:
    Drew and Selena pack for their Chicago trip. Selena and Drew talk about the guy with the scars that she had slept with all those years ago that could possibly be Drew's father. They get up to leave and Drew protests the idea of calling Jesse, telling Selena that if he loved her, he would have never left her. She takes off her engagement ring and leaves it on the table with the phone. The phone rings but she leaves without answering it. (It was Jesse from the airport on his way home, he leaves a long mushy, "I love you" message on the machine and heads for the apartment.)
    Jesse comes in looking for Drew. He sees that she has not picked up his message and that she left her ring on the table. He says something like, I guess she didn't miss me like I missed her and since the ring is here it must really be over. He erases the message, leaves and goes to Company.
    (At the airport) Drew is upset so she and Selena go back to the apartment to pick up her ring. She puts it on, checks the messages, none, and they leave again.

    At Company:
    Bill gets advice on women from Max and then from Buzz. Pilar walks in and tells Bill that she put the moves on Ben and that she was upset. She also told him that she really cares for him but isn't interested in pursuing sex with him yet. She tells him that she realizes that he will want nothing to do with her (Because of the abstinence) and leaves. Bill follows her out and they make up. He didn't care about the sex, it was the lying and he will wait until she is ready.
    Jesse comes in and receives the cold shoulder from Max. He tells Buzz about the ring and Buzz tells him that Drew had left with Selena to go to Chicago.

    At the Santos Estate (Springfield):
    Carmen and Ben are kissing. Pilar leaves and Ben talks to Carmen about discussing men with Pilar. Carmen agrees to do it and then she wants to talk about him. She asks about his first sexual experience and he told her about his scars and how he was set up with a prostitute and how she turned his life around and made him feel like a real man instead of a freak. Carmen loved the story and told him that Mr. Santos was her first and that Ben was the first one since then that she had accepted into her bed.

He says that they can meet together only if Ross is present. They all agree and go off to the Jessup farm for their first meeting.

Olivia told her sister to pack all their things that they were leaving San Cristobel ASAP. Cassie told Olivia that if she really loved Richard, she would give him his son back.
