Dixie is still ill and the airports are closed. She collapsed while trying to get her divorce from Tad. She and Tad are stuck in another country hoping that Dixie doesn’t get much sicker. She worries that JR is angry with them and how he is feeling. Tad tries to keep her calm and make her stay in bed. She starts crying and the storm outside rages on. She is very scared and Tad is scared too. He tells her to believe him that everything is going to be fine. She confides in him that this is how her mother died. There is nothing that can be done to get Dixie off the island. She has never had symptoms this bad. Her heart rate keeps going up. The doctor says that he can give Dixie digitalis to help her out. That happens to be a drug that may kill Dixie since the doctor doesn’t have all the information on her illness. The doctor leaves to get the medicine down the road and Tad returns to Dixie’s side. This condition is what Dixie’s mother had and they couldn’t do anything to help her then. Tad tells her that her mother died a long time ago. Tad assures her that the doctor will be able to give her something to make her feel better. Tad wishes that he had a couple of coconuts to make her laugh like the last time they were on an island. She never stopped loving Tad and he knows that. She wants him to promise her something. In case she dies…she wants Tad to be there for her son. She wants to make sure that he is full of life and know how to love. Tad makes that promise to her. There is nothing for her to worry about there. He is sure that she is going to be there to take care of her own son. She falls unconscious. Tad tries to revive her but he doesn’t seem able to.
