Inside the Light
As Josh, Cassie and Jeffrey prepare to go down to the island clinic to meet with Alonzo, Dinah runs into Edmond in the clinic hallway. She's instantly reminded of all the bad things he's done to her. Edmond leaks that Cassie plans to visit him. He asks Dinah to put in a good word for him. She wants to know what she gets in return. He hints that he has access to the outside world—a little friend. Meanwhile, a caretaker looks through the facility's dark corridors for Will, who hides from him.
Mallet and Marina arrive at the clinic on the tip that Alex gave them. They ask the guard if the man and woman (Cyrus and Harley) in their photos came to visit Dinah. The guard issues them guest passes and bids them well in their search. Meanwhile, lost in the dank stairwells of the clinic, Lizzie Spaulding is puzzled on how to find the exit. She decides to return to Dinah's room and retrace her steps.
Josh, Cassie, and Jeffrey arrive at the clinic and are told that Edmond is a model prisoner. Meanwhile, a deranged patient torments Edmond. He lunges at Edmond's cage and spouts obscenities about The Crown. As Josh, Cassie, and Jeffrey are escorted to their hearing with Alonzo, Lizzie becomes more disoriented and winds up in some stone passageways. Cassie excuses herself from the group to go to the bathroom. Suddenly the lights go out in the entire facility. The hallways illuminate in red. In his cell, Edmond pulls out a flashlight and calls the facility employees morons. "Electric locks," he says. He pushes open the cell door and exits.
Mallet and Marina sit in the stairwell until Mallet decides they have to do something. He opens the stairwell door and runs into Dinah. She immediately asks for help getting out of the dark clinic. Mallet decides just to go for a walk instead. He tosses her over his shoulder and carries her out. Meanwhile, Cassie gets hopelessly lost as she tries to find Josh and Jeffrey in the dark. Around a corner comes Edmond. She shrieks.
Edmond assures Cassie that he means her no harm and wants to do whatever it takes to help her with her son. Josh and Jeffrey argue over who ought to take the lead when traveling down the dark corridors in search of Cassie. Meanwhile, Marina finds someone in the dark and tackles them. She discovers that it's Lizzie. She accuses her of being an inmate. Lizzie retorts that she not an inmate. She came there to see Dinah. Outside with Mallet, Dinah gladly breathes in the fresh air.
Edmond leads suspicious Cassie around and they hear Will calling for his mother. Will hugs her, but when he sees Edmond, he becomes excited. He jumps into his arms and tells his Uncle how frightened he has been since he left his room. Cassie looks on in shock. She learns that Edmond is the friend Will says that he travels to visit. As Edmond and Cassie discuss this, Alonzo enters the hallway, and discovers will. Alonzo becomes suspicious that Cassie arranged for Will to be there. An announcer comes over the PA to say that they are resetting the system. They advise that no one stand near any electrical equipment while they briefly lose total power. The power goes out. Someone screams. Sparks ignite and fade out.
Power returns as Mallet and Dinah sit out on the landing outside of the kitchen, eating and drinking what goods they discovered. As they reminese, Dinah thinks she's starting to feel normal. She makes another plea for Mallet to help her walk out the front gates of the facility. He tells her he can't do that.
Edmond checks Alonzo, who lies unconscious on the floor. Cassie ushers Will away. Josh and Jeffrey rush on the scene. Jeffrey pronounces Alonzo dead. Edmond claims he was with Cassie and Will while Alonzo must have been near the electrical box. Jeffrey discovers a bruise on Alonzo and accuses Edmond of shoving Alonzo into the electrical box.
Meanwhile, the deranged patient, who earlier was angry with Edmond and The Crown, stumbles upon Cassie and Will. He calls her princess Cassie and tells her that she's just as bad as Alonzo was. "Was?" Cassie repeats, backing up. He pulls out a screwdriver and advances on Cassie and Will. "Happy Halloween, Princess," he says.
Back in the hallway, Edmond objects that he hurt Alonzo. Doctors drag him away as he protests. Dinah becomes angry at Mallet for not helping her. He only wants assurance that she won't hurt anyone or herself. Dinah tells him that they are over and leaves to return to her room.
Meanwhile, the deranged patient closes in on Cassie and Will. Suddenly, Edmond shoves him and engages in a terrible fight. He beats the patient up enough for a doctor to get hold of him. The patient shouts that he will kill them as he killed Alonzo. As the patient is hustled away, Cassie wonders who he was. "The man that killed Alonzo," Edmond tells her.
Mallet finds Marina. He wonders where her jacket is. She says she must have left it somewhere in the dark. They decide Alex's lead was bogus. When they head to the guard to check out, they learn that Lizzie Spaulding just left with Marina. Mallet and Marina look at each other puzzled. Meanwhile, Lizzie and Dinah stand together as Lizzie tells Dinah that she can thank Marina that she's free. Dinah is wearing Marina's jacket with her visitor's pass on it. Dinah doesn't care. She tells Lizzie that she owes her one.

Olivia has a bad dream while she naps on the couch, seeing someone's outstretched arm holding a teddy bear. She wakes, feeling frightened about Phillip possibly returning and what he might do. Gus is at the mansion and calls Harley, trying to help find where she may be, but only gets her voice mail, again. He leaves another message, as Natalia overhears. He re-assures her that the call was nothing more than helping try to locate her. Out in the hallway, Alan gets a call from Olivia, who is concerned about Phillip. Alan asks her to get Gus away from the house and keep him away all afternoon. Gus' phone rings – it's Olivia, saying she thinks Phillip was just at her place and it has shaken her. He tells her he'll be right over.
As Gus knocks on Olivia's door, she is rushing to print out a picture from her computer before she opens the door. She finally lets Gus inside, and shows him the picture, saying someone slipped it under her door. He tells her it's a good idea to increase her security, around herself and her daughter, Emma. Though Olivia tries to keep him engaged in chat to follow Alan's instruction, Gus leaves soon anyway.
Meanwhile, back at the mansion, with Gus away, Alan tries to sell Natalia that he's a family man who likes commitment - all of the things that he thinks Natalia wants in a man. Alan also plants the idea that Gus may not be ready for that, since he's fresh out of another relationship, and men usually need time before entering another relationship. Later, Gus returns, and finds that Alan and Natalia have made plans to have lunch together. But when Gus says that it's important that they talk, Natalia ask Alan if they can have lunch at another time. Alan responds they can, and leaves the room.
Gus announces to Natalia that he wants to end his marriage to Harley and move in another direction in his life; new beginnings. He adds that because of her religious beliefs, he wants to ask Harley for an annulment rather than a divorce. Natalia states that if Harley were to call, Gus would go to her. Gus says that he wouldn't. Natalia tells Gus to read over the papers to really know what he is about to do, and then they can meet for lunch to discuss things more. She leaves, and next, Gus' phone rings. It's Buzz telling him about Harley, and Gus rushes out to see her.

Mallet and Marina return to the Springfield police station after coming back from their false lead from Alex that Harley and Cyrus may be in San Cristobel. Marina is frustrated with the loss of time, then gets an idea and calls her grandfather, Buzz. Meanwhile, Alex is at the hospital getting checked, and the doctor asks her how she got her cast so dusty, but she snips it's none of his business. Then, she hears Buzz's voice outside of her room, reacting to what sounds like some good news. Alex tells the doctor to tell Buzz that she wants to talk to him. Buzz enters her room and she wants to know what the good news is, as she hopes to hear that Cyrus is ok. Buzz tells her that Harley is back, though he doesn't know the details. She becomes anxious and starts to ask if they also found Cyrus in the rubble because he was with Harley. Marina then storms into the room, catching Alex in her lies about what she knows about Harley and Cyrus. Marina's plan to set up Alex to get her to reveal that she knows something worked, and Alex confesses that Griggs told her that they were in the old church when it got demolished. Mallet calls for police to watch Alex, while Buzz and Marina start to go to the church site to look for Harley and Cyrus. Inside the rubble, Harley keeps talking to an unconscious Cyrus, and protects him from the debris that continues to fall sporadically.
Alex is released from the hospital, and is wondering if Cyrus and Harley have been found, but a nurse had no information on that. Meanwhile, Buzz, Mallet, and Marina have arrived at the site of the demolition and are calling out loudly for Harley and Cyrus, hoping their voices are heard, so that they the trapped duo know that help is on the way. Buzz hears something, and they all remain quiet, listening, when it becomes clear that they heard a voice. This motivates them even more, and they start to make their way through the rubble, as Mallet calls for additional help. Soon they can see Harley, who upon seeing her rescuers quips "It took you long enough." Marina asks, "Where ‘s Cyrus?". Harley informs that he's there but unconscious and with her weak, whimpering voice says to please hurry. As Buzz and marina continue to move debris, they soon can see Cyrus, who appears dead to them.
Later, Cyrus is being wheeled into a room at the hospital to be checked, as Harley waits in the hall with Buzz, and Marina waits near his door to hear some news about his condition. As a doctor leaves the room, Marina follows behind, trying to get information, and Buzz steps away from Harley to find someone who can examine her. Now alone, Harley walks over to Cyrus, who is still unconscious, looks at him with a certain fondness, and whispers to him that she knows he can be ok, because they are survivors. She sits near him, talking to him, as she did when she was trying to keep him awake while they lay in the rubble. Marina, Coop, and Buzz look in from the hallway. When Cyrus starts to move and cough a little, they rush in. The doctor says they need emergency surgery on him, as he suspects internal bleeding. They take Cyrus to surgery, as Mallet holds Marina and Harley, one on each of his sides, and as Marina and Harley both look at each other with concern.
