Brooke tells Maria at the boathouse that she and Edmund had a shocking talk about Maria and Zach before Edmund died. Brooke says Edmund had a dark side. The last few months he wasn't the man she loved. She says the night of the fire, Edmund was raging and plotting to ruin Zach and divorce Maria. Brooke says she stumbled upon this information accidentally. He told her he was not going to withdraw his divorce petition. She says Edmund thought Maria was cheating on him and wanted her to pay. He also says that was only part of the story. She says she thinks Zach may have been right and maybe Edmund could walk.
Kendall tells Ethan that she won't let Erica and Greenlee get to her. She says they're trying to make her give up on him and think he's a liar, but she believes him. Ethan says there is one thing he hasn't told her. Kendall says whatever it is, they can work it out. Ethan says that since the charges against him for shooting Ryan have been dropped, they need to follow through on their plan to travel to the four corners of the world. He suggests they go to Paris, and Kendall loves the idea.

Greenlee asks him why Ryan has to carry the load of the Lavery brothers by himself. Jonathan says he could not stop Braden on his own. Greenlee says he could have called the police or told Ryan Braden was trying to kill him. She tells him that Braden has started another murder game. The first clue is "as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end." Jonathan says Ryan can't go back there. He's in the one place Braden can get to him. Greenlee urges Jonathan to tell her where Ryan is.
Ryan, who has been knocked out at the abandoned house and is seen waking up with a man in black gloves over him. The man says "wake up Ryan. Long time brother." Ryan says Braden's name but that he can't see his face. Ryan reaches out for Braden's hand but Braden sticks the end of a gun in his hand. When Ryan stands up, it is Tad and Aidan with him.

Kendall says she doesn't care what they think and wishes they would trust her judgment. She tells Ethan he's the best thing that's happened to her. Ethan says he thinks Erica and Greenlee need her to be wrong about him.
Ryan realizes the lamp has been short-circuited and hits it with something to disconnect it. Ryan says he and Braden used to dream up ways to kill their father and death by short circuit was his idea. He says Braden wants him to die by the same torture he planned for their dad. Tad asks why Braden would want to go after him. Ryan says he doesn't know, but maybe it's because he wants to see him as damaged and messed up as he is. Ryan says he needs to bring Braden down and make sure Jonathan gets the help he needs.
Jonathan tells Greenlee he can't tell her where Ryan is because Ryan would not forgive him for putting her in danger. Greenlee asks why he doesn't like her. He says he first saw her as selfish, mean and demanding and she reminded him of his mother.
