When Mark comes by with a list of things to take with to the island, Ben asks Mark if Meg trusts him, and Mark told him that Meg is more in love with him than she has ever been.

ce her to come along on the trip, which they do.
When Vanessa asks Casey why he convinced Virginia to come with, Casey told her that he did it to prevent Michael from obsessing over all of the things that Virginia's missing. Casey promises Vanessa that he'll keep Virginia busy for the weekend, but Vanessa told him that if Virginia wants to interfere with her and Michael, then she will.
While looking around Grogan's boat, Meg bumps into Grogan. When he realizes that Meg is Ben's fiancée, he told her that he's surprised that Ben hired him, since Ben hasn't had much luck with boats, especially since Maria got lost at sea.
Grogan told Meg that it's difficult to get to and from the island because of the tides, so once you're on the island, you're there for the night. He told Meg that he's the only person who can get them onto and off of the island.
In the process of kicking Jade out, Cole finds out that Jade has been researching Ben. Jade told Cole that she's going to be catering the party on the island and then she "lets it slip" about the videotape that she left for Caitlin to find. Cole leaves to stop Caitlin before she watches the videotape.
Sean told Caitlin that he's going to the island, but that he invited Elizabeth, since Amy can't make it.
After a few false starts, Caitlin plays the tape. However, the phone rings and Caitlin answers it. While she's talking on the phone, Cole comes in and sees the tape playing.
Meg comes home and told Ben about her encounter with Grogan. Meg asks Ben why he hired Grogan to take them to the island, and Ben told her that all of the other boat captains were busy for the weekend.
Meg sees the lab report that Ben has pieced back together, and confesses that she had hired the report, but that she never read it. When Meg mentions that Mark knows about the report, Ben asks if Mark has seen the report. Meg assures him that Mark hasn't seen it.
When Meg went upstairs to pack, Ben calls a hacker to help him get into the computer at the lab, where we see that the red substance wasn't paint after all, it was blood.
Gabi and Mark arrive with the supplies and Mark stops Gabi from opening one particular duffel bag.
Gabi gets the fright of her life when she gets locked in one of the rooms, and Grogan opens the door, demanding to know who she is and why she's on the boat.
Jade believed that if she scanned Ben that Cole would remember what a good team they make.
Cole once again failed to convince Jade that he isn't scamming Caitlin. Jade taunted Cole that Caitlin might feel differently about him once she sees the tape she left her. Cole left in a panic.
Ben and Meg's House
Ben pulls up the lab report for the bloody sheets on the Internet. To keep Meg from seeing what he was doing, he lied to Meg that their Internet connection was down when she wanted to check the weather report. Ben suggested that he get a new copy of the report for he, Meg, and Mark to go over. Meg didn't think that was necessary because she completely trusted him and thought Mark felt the same way. Ben still worried that Mark had seen the report. Meg left to run some errands and said she's meet Ben at the boat. Ben changed the lab results via Internet from blood type O+ to acrylic paint.
Jade went to visit Ben under the pretense that she needed purchase orders. When Ben went to go get them from upstairs, Jade took the opportunity to snoop around. She found a safe and started to try and open it when she heard Ben coming back and had to stop. Ben turned down Jade's offer of a ride to the boat.
The Richard's Communication Group
Annie laughs to herself that her father must have thought that the stipulation on his will would be a punishment for her, but little did he know…
Annie announced to Gregory that she was giving up her shares in the Liberty Corporation because she refused to have an affair with him. Gregory had no idea what she was talking about. Annie reminded him about the kiss they shared and she felt that working together would confuse everything. Gregory insisted that the kiss meant nothing to him. Annie commented that maybe Gregory hasn't won Olivia back because his heart really isn't in it. He thought the idea was ludicrous. When Annie made an advance, Gregory was unable to resist her and they shared another kiss. They were surprised when Alex interrupted them.
Annie listened in as Alex warned Gregory not to let that "self-serving temptress" ruin his plans to get Olivia back. Gregory assured her that what she saw wasn't what it looked like.
Later, Annie decided it was time to have a little chat with Alex.
The Richard's House
Cole pulled Caitlin into a kiss to keep her from seeing the video of Jade and he that Caitlin had just turned on. Olivia walked in, saw the tape, and recognized Jade in the video with Cole. Caitlin received a phone call that prompted her to leave without ever seeing the tape.
Caitlin called the fertility doctor and was pleased to hear that they would squeeze her in that day.
Olivia assumed that Cole was having an affair with Jade. Cole explained that the tape was made over a year ago. Olivia wouldn't let Cole anywhere near the tape. When Caitlin came back, she suggested that the three of them watch the tape together. Cole was really sweating, but when Olivia played the tape he was relieved that Olivia had switched the tape with the tape of Caitlin's ultrasound. The tape made Caitlin sad and she went running off. Olivia told Cole that he'd better take care of Jade.
Caitlin wondered how long she would be able to keep her charade of being pregnant up. She had been fooling with the size of her maternity pad and was holding part of it in her hand when Olivia walked in the door and saw her.
As all of the party guests gradually arrived to catch the boat someone watched them from afar through binoculars.
Mark was protective of his duffel bag, which he explained to Meg just had a few things to liven up the party with.
Gabi greeted Sean and Elizabeth. She made the mistake of thinking that Elizabeth was Amy. Elizabeth realized that she had been Sean's second pick and stormed off claiming she wouldn't go on the trip.
Sean saw Cole talking to Jade. Cole threatened Jade to stay away from Caitlin or that she'd be very sorry.
Meg was upset when Ben phoned her and told her that he'd have to miss the boat because he had urgent business to attend to. He promised to make it out for the party.
Elizabeth sneaked back onto the boat because she decided she didn't want to miss the biggest party of the year. She hid out downstairs and made plans to surprise everyone once they got to the island. Little did she know she was being watched through a peephole.
