Following the massive explosion, Benjy cries for his unconscious father to wake up. Antonio comes by to check on his brother and finds Ricardo brooding over recent troubling events. Tim manages to overpower Benjy's abductor and wrestles the weapon away from him. Cole reminds Caitlin that the love they shared is still strong enough to see them through this current crisis. Ben finally comes to and carries Benjy to safety. Later, Maria is happily reunited with her son while Tess is appalled to learn how close her plan came to tragically backfiring.

Tess and Tim are on the back deck. Tess cries, thinking about how she could have lost Benjy. She says all they only asked Meg to do a simple thing. Tim says, but you got caught in the rip tide. Tess says, but a man kidnapped Benjy. Tim says, you said there were two men. Tess says there were two men and it could have been so much worse. Tim says something about Tess is bothering him. He says Tess was a big part of the kidnapping. Tess has flashbacks of making arrangement for Benjy to be kidnapped. What do you mean? Tim says her screams were used as a distraction so the kidnappers could get away. He says it seems funny that only Tess saw two men. Tess says she's glad she saw them because they could have done something worse. Tess says she almost lost a child she loves and Tim is acting like she did something wrong. Tim says he's sorry and wants to know if they can still be friends. Tess says ok and suggests they go back in side. Tim wants to wait a minute. Inside, Maria asks Benjy why he didn't stay with Meg on the beach. Benjy says it's because Meg didn't care where he went. Meg says that's not true. Benjy said the man was nice to him but Meg wants him to go. He says, daddy wouldn't want him to go. Ricardo and Antonio arrive. Ricardo told Maria she should have called him. Ben says she wanted to, but he wouldn't let her. Ricardo thinks she should have called any way. Antonio says they should be thankful Benjy is back. Meg looks at Ben and walks aside, looking a little upset. Ricardo says it is important that Benjy is ok. He wants Benjy to tell him what happened, but he'll get a statement from the adults first. Maria says if he comes upstairs and helps her get Benjy to bed, he can get her statement first. Antonio going too since the uncles may read Benjy a bedtime story. Maria, Benjy, Ricardo, and Antonio, head upstairs. Ben told Meg he's sorry for what Benjy said. Meg doesn't want to talk about it, but told Ben she's going and leaving for good. Ben says he thought she had decided to stay. Meg says that was before Benjy was kidnapped. She says Ben's son hates her. Ben is afraid if Meg leaves now, he'll never like her cause he'll think Meg doesn't like him. Ben says he'll talk to Benjy and doesn't want Meg to leave because a 5 year old wants her to. Meg says, but that five year old is Ben's son. Ben says that doesn't mean he can get his way. Meg says she has to leave because when she looks in Ben's eyes, she can see things have changed. She says she's a little jealous of Benjy and is afraid when Ben looks at her, he's looking at her through Benjy's eyes. Tim and Tess finally come in. Ben told them Ricardo is upstairs and needs their statements. Tess and Meg kind of glare at each other. After they head upstairs, Ben asks Meg if she has a problem with Tess. Meg says Tess has a problem with her. She told Ben how she said this kidnapping was her fault. Ben thinks it's time for Tess to go, but Meg says no because that would make things worse. Meg says she doesn't care what Tess thinks about her, only what Ben thinks. BTW, Meg wants to know what Ben thinks Meg thinks about Benjy. Ben says he knows she cares for him. Meg told Ben, he's a bad liar. Meg says Ben was angry with her when he found out Benjy was missing. Ben says this is ridiculous and since Benjy is safe, he wants to move on. Meg says she's trying to be honest and wants to know if Ben thinks sub consciously, Meg wants Benjy to leave. Ben says he doesn't think that which upsets Meg since she's afraid it is how she thinks. Meg says a part of her wishes Benjy never came to Sunset Beach. She talks about how first Maria came back but was going to give Ben a divorce, but then Benjy showed up. Meg says she has to accept Ben's son but when she looks at him, she sees the love Ben and Maria shared. Ben says that's in the past and told Meg to stop torturing herself. Meg says she thought if Benjy accepted her, it would all work out, but now she thinks if he hadn't come into Ben's life, Meg wouldn't have to go through any of this. She says a part of her wishes he never showed up. She says she let Benjy be kidnapped because he belongs to Ben and Maria. Ben says that's not true. Meg wants to know if anything which happened today, changes things and are they going to be ok. Upstairs, Benjy is telling Ricardo what happened. Ricardo asks Benjy if he was afraid of the guy who took you. Benjy wasn't but says he didn't take him, Benjy went with him cause Meg ran away. Maria says that's not exactly how it happened. She told Benjy to get ready for bed. Maria explains how it's not easy living here and how Benjy doesn't really care for Meg. He resents her coming between her and Ben. Maria says it's gotten so bad so Meg is moving out. Ricardo says it's obvious how much Benjy cares for Maria. Maria is glad and glad he didn't forget her. Maria realizes she's not the only one with problems and wants to know how Ricardo is feeling. Ricardo says he's hurt, confused, mad, and betrayed. He thought Gabi loved him and doesn't know how she could have left him without saying good bye. Benjy is back and ready for bed, except he didn't brush his teeth. Tim and Tess are at the door. Tess picks up Benjy and says she's so glad he's all right. Benjy says she's squeezing him too tight. Ricardo told Tim and Tess to go to Tess's room so he can question them. Benjy went to brush his teeth. Tess told Ricardo she needs a minute to change her clothes. Maria and Antonio talk about Gabi. Maria says she thinks Ricardo should go to Gabi and talk to her. Antonio says he can't because she left town. Maria asks where she went but Antonio says he doesn't know nor does he know why she left. Maria wonders if she had second thoughts about Antonio. Antonio says that's not it since she wouldn't tell him why she was leaving. He's going to find out though. Tess has changed her clothes and she and Tim are giving Ricardo their statement. Tim says the man was about medium height with dark hair. Tess says he was taller with light hair, but it was dark, so maybe they didn't get a good look at him. Ricardo asks Tess about the other guy. She says she didn't see him very well. Ricardo will take anything she's got. Tess didn't see how tall he was. Ricardo asks about his hair but Tess says he was wearing a baseball cap. Ricardo asks if it had a logo. Tess says it was dark and that's it. Tim says there's something else.
Olivia is about to open the door to the power plant when a hand comes out of know where and covers her mouth. Don't scream. It's AJ. Olivia had turned around and pointed a gun at him. AJ told her to put the gun away. He didn't mean to scare her. Olivia figures she was right. Francesca is dead and AJ shot her. AJ told Olivia, she doesn't have to lie to him any more. Olivia wants to know if he's saying she shot Francesca. She says she didn't and only came her to try and clear Caitlin. Olivia wants to know why AJ came. He says he over heard Olivia saying she was meeting Francesca here and wanted to protect her. He says he didn't shoot Francesca either, but it doesn't mean he wouldn't. AJ says someone has to stop her. AJ says he got here early to check things out but the door to the plant was locked. Olivia figures maybe Francesca didn't show up. AJ says they should go. Behind the locked door, a woman who looks and sounds like Francesca, realizes someone has arrived and says it's about time. A gun is being pointed at Francesca and the person holding it say, "Don't move." Francesca says, "Gregory?" Gregory says she's right, it's him. He told her not to move and says Olivia isn't coming because he locked the door. Gregory asks her how she survived but then says it doesn't matter. You caused my daughter a lot of pain. Francesca says it's not her fault Caitlin confessed. Gregory says he's going to make sure she doesn't confess the second time Francesca is shot. Francesca asks if he's going to kill her. Gregory says it's a shame she didn't die the first time he shot her. Francesca says, "You're the one who shot me?" Gregory figures she had a memory block out which is why she doesn't remember. He figures she called Olivia since she didn't remember Gregory shot her and says it's a good thing it wasn't Olivia, since she probably wouldn't shoot her again. Gregory says he had to shoot her after he found out she took Trey. Gregory has a flashback to that moment he found out. He says it's bad enough Francesca took Cole, but he wasn't going to let her take his son. Gregory has a flashback of going to Francesca's room and shooting her. He says he was going to check to be sure she was dead, but he hear noises so he left. Gregory says and then he had to wait with the rest of them at the hospital to see if she died. Finally you did or at least we thought you did. Gregory says it was such a waste since she was so young and beautiful. Gregory says he has no choice cause he can't lose Caitlin and Trey. This time he's going to make certain Francesca dies. Gregory cocks his gun. He's going to shoot her, but says he can't do it this way. He told Francesca to turn around, since this whole time she's had her back to him. It appears she starts to turn around.
