John continues his search for Adriana, stopping at the diner to ask Carlotta if she knows where Adriana is. Carlotta believes that she's staying with Dorian, but Dorian is away on a trip and a check with the day care where Adriana works informs him that she hasn't been seen there in days. In fact, no one has seen her since the night of the 4th of July. John tracks down Rex, who was the last person to be seen with her. After some pressure by John, he admits that he and Shannon are trying to break Adriana and River because Shannon is interested in River. He is forced to admit in front of Lindsay, who had come looking for him when he didn't show up to work at Ultra Violet, that he was involved because he was interested in Adriana. John calls Bo to give him an update. Bo suggests he check with Jen because he saw her filming the night of the 4th of July. John heads back to the diner and asks Jen if he can check the tape to see if there are any clues about Adriana.
At the diner, Jen and Riley have a discussion about whether to take their relationship "to the next level." They almost kiss, but ultimately decide they don't want to risk losing each other's friendship by getting romantically involved. Neither of them looks particularly happy about the decision.
Quarantined in Nora's house, Bo and Nora are extremely cranky and get into an argument, which upsets Matthew. They claim they are arguing because they are not feeling well, but Matthew thinks it has more to do with Bo being jealous of Daniel's relationship with Nora. After playing some board games, Bo and Nora both fall asleep on the couch. Matthew grabs a blanket and crawls up on the couch between his parents to go to sleep.
In Puerto Rico, Antonio comes face to face with the acting head of the Santi crime family. He is very suspicious of Antonio, especially since he used to be a cop.

David, Dorian, Natalie and Paul arrive in Puerto Rico and head out in search of the Santi money. But thanks to Jessica's false instructions that everything on the map is reversed, they waste the day wandering around the mountains. John calls Dorian to check if Adriana is with her. Once Dorian finds out that Adriana is missing, she decides to fly home to Llanview immediately.
In the meantime, Jessica is also in Puerto Rico and calls on one of Antonio's friends in the police department for help. He warns her that if Antonio is trying to infiltrate the Santi crime family, he is in great danger and will probably not make it back alive. Jessica frantically calls Carlotta and asks her for the numbers from the broach, which will complete the combination for the vault. She has heard they sometimes lock traitors in the vault and is worried for Antonio's safety. Carlotta gives her the numbers and Jessica and the police officer find the vault and begin to open it. The police officer leaves to go get some backup. Jessica enters the vault and finds a man being held prisoner there, but it is not Antonio.

The bickering at Nora's house continues, to the point where they actually create a line down the center of the house and create a schedule for time to spend in the kitchen. Matthew unhappily watches his parents snipe at each other about their lack of cooking skills. When Evangeline stops by to drop off a file, Bo refuses to take it and sends her around to the side door, which is in Nora's part of the house. They are both thrilled when Jordan arrives to examine them and tells them the quarantine is over. Bo rushes off to work, but returns later to get his cell phone. Matthew invites him to stay for movie and a pizza and he agrees, settling down on the couch next to Nora. When the phone rings, Matthew answers it and lies to Daniel, saying his parents are still under quarantine.
There's even more bickering at the house where the students are staying, all of them are unhappy with their current roommates. Roxy comes up with the idea of changing roommates and puts Jen and Riley together and Marcie and Shannon become roommates, too. Nick invites Jen to go to Ultra Violet. She agrees, as long as Marcie comes with them. Riley refuses to go, but seems jealous that Jen is going with Nick. After they leave, Mark tells Riley that he should admit to himself that he wants Jen.
Dorian and Carlotta pay John a visit at the police station and inform him that Adriana is safe and sound at the convent school. They return to the diner and worry about the possible danger that Antonio, Adriana and David are in. Evangeline visits John and learns that the person who killed Kathryn and the accountant killed himself with a cyanide pill rather than divulge any information about the person who hired him. Unable to get in touch with Antonio, John decides he needs to go to Puerto Rico and see what's going on for himself.
In Puerto Rico, Antonio sends Sonia to talk to her contacts and get some information about what is going on. He takes the opportunity to talk to his police friend and finds out that Jessica is in Puerto Rico and that she is at the hospital with the man that they found in the empty Santi vault. Antonio also learns that Paul and David are currently in police custody. Sonia returns and catches them talking, but Antonio tells her they used to work together and just happened to run into each other. Later, Sonia almost sees John when he arrives at the hotel in Puerto Rico, but Antonio kisses her to distract her. When Sonia leaves, Antonio catches John up on what has been going on, including the death of the Santi second in command. John wants Antonio to end the undercover operation now, but Antonio refuses, Sonia is hiding something and he is determined to find out what it is. Sonia returns and from a distance sees the two of them together. She pulls out her gun, but John spots her and pushes Antonio to the ground, pretending to arrest him.
