THE SHIP CAPSIZED!:
In the heat of the argument between Phillip and Cole the ship capsized. Phillip was knocked unconscious. Francesca didn't want to leave him but Cole convinced her that they didn't need a jealous husband in a crisis. He tied Phillips wrist and left the cabin. Much to their bad timing Kurt was standing there with a gun. Kurt thought that Phillip was dead and decided to finish the job Phillip had started. Kurt and Cole fought. Cole knocked Kurt out. As the threesome was moving through the halls the ship lurched and Francesca was knocked out.
In the ballroom the passengers were digging themselves out. Amy was the first to notice that the room was upside down. Emily was upset because she couldn't find Bette. Father Antonio was worried about Ricardo and Gabi. Soon after Ricardo and Gabi entered the room the passengers heard Bette yelling from her perch near the ceiling. Sean quickly grabbed what looked like a curtain and the passengers made a makeshift net for Bette to drop into. Melinda was upset with the photographer because he had lost the film of Casey and Sara. Ricardo informed everyone that the Captain was probably dead and the only way out was to climb to the bottom of the ship, which was on top of the water. Some of the ship's crew convinced the passengers not to go. A very small group climbed to the next deck with Ricardo. A second explosion rocked the ship.
Meanwhile Casey and Sara woke up from their drugged drinks. They instantly noticed something was wrong with the ship. Casey said they needed to make it to safety. Sara was panicked because they were undressed. Casey put on pants and gave her his shirt. As they tried to get out of the stuck cabin door the porthole blew open and the cabin started filling with water.
SOUTH BAY GENERAL:
Virginia woke up and discovered that Jimmy was safe and at another hospital. After waking Tyus, Virginia was shocked to learn that Michael had injected himself with Martin's Syndrome. Tyus told her that the only cure was in his medical bag and it had to be refrigerated quickly.
TYUS' SUNSET BEACH APARTMENT
: Michael told Vanessa that he's never been happier than he is now. They made love.
Virginia arrived at the apartment in search of Tyus cure. A police officer would not let her in the building. When she asked about Michael and Vanessa he said that an African American couple of their descriptions had been taken out of the building, unfortunately he was talking about Virginia and Tyus. When the police officer wasn't looking she sneaked in the building and found the medical bag.

The passengers in the upside-down ship discuss whether to follow Ricardo or someone from the crew. Ricardo wants everyone to get out by climbing to the hull, and the crew person thinks everyone should stay where they are. Bette, Sean and Gabby side with Ricardo. Melinda and Amy side with the crew person. When Ricardo doesn't sound too confident about plan A, Bette wants to hear plan B.
Water rushes in on Sara and Casey. The force of the water knocks Casey to the floor.
Vanessa and Michael sit in the rubble and Vanessa told him that the last time they talked, Tyus was very close to a cure for Martin's Syndrome. Michael told her that Tyus found a cure. Vanessa wants to know what else he knows. He says that he knows a lot. "There is something you should know", he says. "What went wrong?"
Virginia finds Tyus's bag with the cure in it.
Maria's mother finds a picture of Ricardo, Antonio and Maria in the rubble.
Meg and Dana enter the Cummings house and find it a mess. "Family is everything to you, isn't it?" "I don't know what I would do without them." "You were so close and so strong for each other. I have nobody." "Yes, you do, somewhere out there." Meg can't wait for her family to return so that they can meet Dana.
A patrolman stops Virginia on her way out of the building. He says that he should arrest her because she did not follow orders and entered the building. She tries to explain to him how important the vial that she got is. Virginia finds out from him that Michael and Vanessa were not brought out of the building, as she had been led to believe. Virginia heads back into the building to search for Michael.
Michael told Vanessa that Tyus needed someone to test the cure on, before he gave it to Vanessa, so he gave the disease to Michael. Vanessa gets very upset at this news.
Gabby volunteers to be the first one to climb out. Sean went second. Then, because of Sean, Amy went next. Also, Emily, Bette, Brad, Antonio and Ricardo.
Sara and Casey manage to escape and start wander around the ship, looking for a way to safety.
Melinda, who stayed behind where she thinks it is safer, says that she hopes Sara makes it out alive because , if she dies, the press will turn her into some kind of martyr. That would be bad for book sales.
There is an explosion and everyone gets knocked around, those who climbed up to another level, those who stayed behind, and Sara and Casey, who are by themselves.
Meg told Dana that Ben tried to save someone and couldn't. Dana asks who this other person was.
Ricardo's group hear screams and assume that it is those who did not go with them. Ricardo leaves to look for a way out. Amy complains.
Casey says that he and Sara should keep moving. Sara makes him wait while she bandages his arm with a piece of material that she tears from her shirt. She talks about taking medical classes, but then dropping out. She refers to herself as a quitter. Casey says that she doesn't look like a quitter now.
Dana asks who Ben couldn't save. Dana knocks over a picture of Ben and looks at it.
Virginia walks through the shattered building looking for Michael. The patrolman grabs her arm in an attempt to stop her.
Michael told Vanessa that he did the right thing. "I'm not sorry." "How can you say that? You gave yourself a death sentence." "It won't come to that. Tyus says that it will work." "You said yourself, Michael, that the cure is experimental. It could kill you before the disease does." "The things I do come out of my love for you." "What did I do to deserve someone like you?" "I love you. I can handle it because we are together."
Gabby and Antonio get edgy as they wait for Ricardo to return. Bette announces that "This broad is unsinkable." Melinda bursts in and as she lies about how she tried to save everyone, she mentions that she left the galley door open. Bad news!
Dana stars at the picture of Ben. Meg asks if anything is wrong. Dana says she was just thinking that he is handsome. They discuss how something good came out of the disaster, they have become friends.
The patrolman causes Virginia to drop the vial with the cure in it.
Casey and Sara continue to wander. Suddenly Casey looks around and says "We have gone in a circle." "We'll never get out of here." "Yes, we will."
Melinda, Amy, and Brad all want to leave before Ricardo gets back. Right then, Ricardo returns and told Gabby that things are worse than he thought. "We might not make it out of here?" Everyone stands around looking shocked.
