At the Abbott cabin, Jack, Paul, and J.T. didn't find any clues as to Patty and Colleen's whereabouts, but they figured out that the kidnappers must have left Patty tied up. They assumed that Colleen had found and untied Patty, who then must have taken Colleen hostage. They wondered how Patty had been able to control Colleen. Jack opened a drawer and told J.T. and Paul that John's gun was missing -- and that Patty was probably using it to hold Colleen prisoner.
Jack called the police and told them that Patty was not far from the Abbott cabin, and that she was holding a captive. He added that she was armed and dangerous. Paul, reminding Jack and J.T. that Patty was Paul's sister, wasn't thrilled that Jack had used the term "dangerous." Jack and Paul began to argue about the state of Patty's mental health, but J.T. defused the fighting by telling them that Colleen was sharp, and had probably left them a clue as to her whereabouts. Paul said that Patty had no reason to hurt Colleen, but Jack said that Patty had no rational reason to hurt Summer or Ashley, either. J.T. reminded Paul that Patty had attacked Paul with a knife.
Out in the woods, Patty woke up Colleen, who was tied to a tree. She untied Colleen and told her that it was time for them to get moving. As they began to walk, Colleen surreptitiously ripped a piece of her scarf and dropped it on the ground.
Later, Patty was happy to hear the sound of a stream in the distance, because Kitty Kitty was thirsty. Colleen said that she knew the area, and would lead Patty to the stream. As they walked, Colleen dropped a trail of scarf pieces.
Back at the cabin, Jack received a phone call from Colleen's phone. He answered, assuming that it was Colleen, but it was actually Patty. Colleen was sitting near Patty, bound and gagged. Jack put Patty on speakerphone so that J.T. and Paul could hear the conversation. Jack told Patty that he was very concerned about her. Patty was happy to hear that, and assumed that Jack was eager to continue with their interrupted wedding. Jack asked Patty where she was, but Patty said that she would go to Jack.
Patty became upset when Jack asked where Colleen was, realizing that Jack was more concerned about Colleen than he was about her. Colleen was able to loosen her gag, and shouted, "Jack! Cow...!" before Patty dropped the phone on the ground and smashed it with her foot. Extremely angry, Patty pointed the gun at Colleen.
Patty and Colleen arrived at an abandoned campsite, "Camp Cheveyo! Cowabunga!" Patty realized why Colleen had yelled "cow" to Jack and had led Patty to the campsite. Colleen said that Jack would be showing up soon, as all of the Abbott children had gone to the camp. Patty said that Jack probably didn't hear Colleen yell, and that no one was going to show up. Colleen whined that she wanted to go home. Patty said that she wanted to go home, too -- but that Colleen had made that impossible. Patty pointed the gun at Colleen and said, "You blew it, little girl."
Jack, J.T., and Paul wondered what Colleen was trying to tell Jack when she yelled, "cow." J.T. did an Internet search on nearby establishments that had "cow" in their name, or featured statues of cows. J.T. wondered if Colleen could have been referring to a dairy farm. Jack remembered that there was an abandoned dairy farm about an hour from the cabin. Paul and Jack rushed out, leaving J.T. to update the highway patrol.
Victoria and Nick met at Crimson Lights to discuss some business problems at Newman Enterprises. Their conversation turned to Nikki's whereabouts. Victoria told Nick that J.T. was too preoccupied to do a proper search for Nikki. Nick told Victoria that Summer was doing well in Switzerland, and that he hoped that Patty Williams was apprehended before she had the chance to hurt someone else.
In her room at the psychiatric hospital, Sharon spoke to her unborn child. She mentioned that she hadn't heard from Nick, and wondered if Phyllis had dragged him off to Switzerland. Sharon "told" her baby that Sharon had been growing calmer, and that by the time the baby was born, Sharon might have her act together.
Nick visited Sharon. She asked him how Phyllis had reacted to the news that Nick was the father of Sharon's child. Nick admitted that he hadn't told Phyllis. He said that he had arrived at the airport, where Summer and Phyllis had been waiting to board their flight to Switzerland, but he looked at Phyllis and decided that he didn't want to burden her with the news of Sharon's child's paternity.
Sharon agreed that it would have been cruel for Nick to tell Phyllis the news just before she took Summer for therapy in Switzerland. Sharon said that if Phyllis knew, Phyllis would have spent her time in Switzerland worrying that Nick and Sharon were bonding over the unborn child. Sharon and Nick agreed that, for the time being, they wouldn't tell anyone else that Nick was the baby's father.
Sharon thought that perhaps Nick should never tell Phyllis that he was the father. Nick said that he was not going to keep any secrets from his wife. Sharon reminded Nick that they had previously made bad decisions about revealing secrets -- decisions that had led to heartache for others, particularly Jack and Noah. Sharon said that she was willing to raise the child on her own. Nick rejected that idea -- he wanted the baby to know that he was her father. Nick admitted that people would be hurt when the truth was revealed, but he felt that he, Sharon, and Phyllis would find a way to work things out.
Nick told Sharon that he didn't want her to handle everything on her own -- that her child had a father and that he would be there for Sharon and her child every step of the way. Nick spoke to the unborn child, "You hear that, Faith Cassidy Newman? I'm your father." Sharon looked thrilled.
In her suite at the Athletic Club, Amber dreamt that she was in bed with Daniel. She woke up when the phone rang. It was Deacon calling, reminding Amber that they were going to be married later that day. He warned Amber not to be late to the wedding.
Chloe, Amber's matron of honor, stopped by Amber's suite. She looked at Amber's wedding dress, and was shocked to see that it was black. As Amber tried to hold back tears, Chloe said that Amber looked miserable. Jana showed up and told Amber that she wouldn't be attending the wedding, as she couldn't condone Amber marrying someone who Amber hated. Amber told Chloe and Jana that they didn't know Deacon like Amber did -- and that Deacon was capable of anything. She told Chloe and Jana that if they didn't want to help her get ready for the wedding, then they should leave.
Deacon, dressed to the nines, visited Ryder in prison, and reminded Ryder that Deacon was getting married later that day. A less-than-thrilled Ryder told Deacon that he thought that he would already be out of prison. Deacon told Ryder to relax -- that their plan was working. Deacon said that they would soon be getting the painting, and then Ryder would be getting out of jail. Ryder told Deacon that Daniel had pretended to be drunk in order to get arrested and question Ryder. He assured Deacon that he didn't tell Daniel anything that would screw the plan up.
Ryder told Deacon that Daniel and Michael were trying to turn Kevin against him. Deacon told Ryder to "stick to the act," and, after Kevin delivered the painting, Ryder would get everything that he ever dreamed of.
After Deacon left, the despondent-looking Ryder was surprised when the guard told him that he had a visitor. Ryder was shocked to see his mother, who walked over to Ryder and touched him on the cheek.
At Crimson Lights, Kevin was on the phone with an airline, booking a one-way ticket to Detroit. He had the key to Tom's safe-deposit box in his hand. After Kevin hung up, Daniel walked up to him. Kevin said that he was going to use the reward money from the recovered Terroni to hire a legal team to get Ryder out of jail. Daniel said that Ryder was using Kevin to get the Terroni, and that Ryder had been playing Kevin.
Daniel and Kevin began to argue. Daniel told Kevin that Ryder wasn't even in the alley the night that Ray Elkins had been murdered, and that Ryder would recant his confession if Deacon told him to. Kevin became upset when he learned that Daniel had gone to the jail and roughed up Ryder. Kevin said that he wasn't surprised that Ryder, having been abused as a child, told Daniel whatever Daniel wanted to hear. Kevin felt that if Ryder was mixed up with Deacon, that was all the more reason for Kevin to help Ryder.
Daniel was shocked that Kevin was going to help Ryder, the guy who had framed Daniel for murder. Kevin told Daniel that it had been Deacon, and not Ryder, who had framed Daniel. Daniel accused Kevin of turning his back on Amber. Kevin countered that Daniel had thrown Amber out of Daniel's apartment. Daniel and Kevin continued bickering, and ended up having a fistfight, rolling around on the floor.
Jana broke up the fight and Daniel stormed out of Crimson Lights. While placing some ice on Kevin's injured hand, Jana yelled at Kevin, telling him that Ryder was turning all of Kevin's friends against Kevin. Kevin said that he didn't have time to worry about that, as he had to catch his flight to Detroit. Searching his pockets, Kevin realized that he had lost the key to Tom's safe-deposit box.
Katherine and Murphy arrived at the Athletic Club for Deacon and Amber's wedding. They ran into Chance, who informed them that Chloe, Amber's matron of honor, had invited him to attend. Chance told Katherine that Chloe was confused about Amber's choice for a husband, because Chloe thought that Amber loved Daniel. Victoria entered the club and Katherine walked over to her to see if she had any news about Nikki. Victoria said that she didn't. Katherine said that she planned to get Chance involved in tracking Nikki down.
Chloe and Chance were chatting with Katherine and Murphy when Deacon showed up. Chloe thought that Deacon was good-looking. Deacon walked over to the group and Murphy introduced him . Deacon spotted Victoria and asked her to stay for the ceremony. When Deacon walked away to talk with the justice of the peace, the group expressed their hope that Amber had changed her mind about marrying Deacon. Amber walked in, wearing her black dress and a despondent expression on her face.
Chloe told Katherine and Murphy that Amber was marrying Deacon because Deacon was holding some information about Daniel over Amber's head. Katherine asked Chance if there was anything that he could do as a law enforcement officer, since it appeared that Deacon was blackmailing Amber. Chance said that he might be able to do something -- but Amber would first have to file a complaint against Deacon. Katherine felt that it was worth a try, and sent Chance over to speak with Deacon and Amber.
Chance told Amber and Deacon that some people had raised concerns about Amber's willingness to go through with the wedding. Deacon said that Daniel Romalotti, Amber's ex, had started those nasty rumors. Chance told Amber that she didn't have to go through with the marriage, and asked her if she would like him to stop the wedding. Amber said that she wanted to marry Deacon. Deacon announced that the wedding was about to begin.
Chloe marched down the aisle and stood next to the justice of the peace and Deacon. Both Chloe and Katherine stared at Amber, their eyes almost begging her to call the wedding off. The pianist began playing "Here Comes the Bride," and Amber began her walk down the aisle.
Just as Amber was about to say, "I do," Daniel rushed into the club and stopped her from completing her vows. Deacon urged Amber to finish, but Daniel told Amber that she didn't have to marry Deacon. Deacon asked a waiter to summon security. Kevin and Jana rushed into the club. Daniel told Amber that there was something that Deacon wanted even more than her. When Deacon denied it, Daniel held up the key to Tom's safe-deposit box, and told Deacon to call off the wedding, or Deacon would never see the key again.
