Jamal, Alison and Livvie took Jack back to the bike shop still amazed that he was really alive. Jamal was very disturbed by the whole situation. He knew Jack was dead when they buried him, and now he was standing there without a scratch on him. Jamal questioned Jack about everything that has happened to him but Jack told him that he didn't know how he got out of the coffin and couldn't remember anything. Frustrated by all of Jamal's questioning, Jack went outside to get some air. Caleb appeared lurking around the corner of the shop watching Jack. He whispered to himself that he was surprised that Jack had made it back so fast, but that it didn't matter. He began to approach Jack, but ducked back behind the shop when he saw Chris coming. Jack coldly greeted Chris as they walked back into the shop. Chris told him that he was concerned about him and had tried to find him. Chris made an inappropriate comment about Livvie and Jack grabbed him by the throat, pushed him up against a shelf and held him there. It took Jamal, Livvie and Alison to pull Jack off of Chris. Gasping for air, Chris angrily told Jack that he may be alive, but he was dead to him. After he left the shop Jamal told Jack that he had an iron grip on Chris, and wondered what was up? Again Jack had no answers for Jamal.

Lucy got hysterical as Kevin told her that almost everything, including her gowns, was underwater. After calling every possible place in town, Lucy was convinced that they would need to cancel the ball. Totally crushed, she went up on the roof to regroup. Kevin tried to remind her that for as long as he could remember some sort of catastrophe always seemed the plague the ball, but that she had always managed to pull it off, making each year's event bigger and better. Lucy disagreed with him and told him that this year it was over, but then she looked over at the landing pad, smiled and told Kevin that she had an idea that could make it happen after all!
