Erica comes in to Jacksons hospital room. Jackson seems so relieved to see her. He asks her where she was all night and why she didnt come over earlier. Erica wonders why Jackson looks so worried.

She tells him that Aidan had been following Chris, and he is also certain that Chris didnt pull the trigger. Jackson seems relieved. Erica leans over and kisses him. Derek comes in to question Jackson. He says the cops have covered the area, but have found no evidence. He asks Jackson if theres anyone out there who wants him dead.

Its Flanders, whos seems to be calling from somewhere in the woods. Flanders tells Chris that they had a deal. He asks for his plane ticket out of Pine Valley. Flanders says he did what he had to do to send Jackson a message. He threatens that if Chris doesnt hold up his end of the deal, hell come after him and Erica. Chris gets off the phone.

Simone promises to not tell Greenlee, but Carlos is convinced that Greenlee will never forgive him. He says he lost her trust. Just then, two cops come in to the office. Everyone wonders what theyre doing there. One cop responds that no day would be complete without arresting Simone. Simone is shocked!
