Kendall brings in coffee for everyone. Zach explains to Kendall why he could not tell her that the captive man was Jake Martin, and she understands. She cannot believe Jake was being held captive. Kendall approaches Greenlee, and Greenlee say, “That’s OK, that’s OK Aidan was in a room; it blew up, but we can’t tell if he lived or died."
Zach thinks the worse and want to tell Tads family, but Ryan thinks they should wait until they know more. They get the transmission back. Kendall asks if there is any news on Aidan, and Jake Martin. Tad walks into the room looking for word on Fish 'n Chips (Aidan) when he hears them mentioning Jakes name. He request information on his brother.

Greenlee ask Ryan to zoom in, because she sees something. When Ryan zooms in she notices Aidans watch is on the floor. They speculate as to how it could have gotten there, but mostly they conclude that Aidan and Jake are dead.

You knew didnt you that Aidan slept with your wife." Tad ask Kendall, When a powerful man like Zach Slater find out that someone slept with his wife, what do you think will happen? I am sorry, but Aidan told me; it took a lot out of him, because you two promised not to tell anyone, but he told me, and now somehow Zach knew." Kendall sympathizes with Tad, but asks him to shut up.
Zach tells her to let him talk. Tad also tells Kendall that her betrayal is dead, because it died with Aidan. Tad said I should have known when Aidan says he was going to work for Cambias that his first job would be a suicide mission. He glares at them both, and then says now excuse me, I have to go tell my parents my brother is dead.

She lays a new suit on his bed, because she burned all of his clothes.
Krystal tells Angie that it must be wonderful to have Cassie back from Paris. Angie says you know sometimes I wish I could spend five minutes with her birth parents, and then sometimes I don't. Krystal is surprised, because she didn't know Cassie was adopted. Angie says yes, I found her in an alley. Krystal says it's wonderful that Angie could adopt her. Angie comments that she doesn't think Cassie remembers being abandoned, but sometimes she see a scared lost girl in those eyes. Angie comments on how unhappy Cassie was when she and Jacob divorced. Krystal asks if she got the same look when Angie told her she and Jesse were getting married? Angie says no, she loves Jesse. Angie gets paged then leaves for the hospital.
Greenlee has many theories on why Aidans watch is on the floor; maybe Aidan just took the watch off, or maybe his captors stole it. The others aren't sharing her hope. Greenlee tells Ryan that she will not lose someone she loves again, because she has already been through it first with Leo, and then with him.

Joe thanks Jesse for his help to find Kate. Jesse tells them they got a lead. Julia is happy about the lead, and wants to know what they find out. Jesse responds that they might know where the adoption took place, but nothing concrete yet. Both Julia and Kathy think it would be incredible for Tad to finally find his daughter.
Dixie looks up to the sky then says, "You'll know she's Kate soon, Tad. I promise."
Tad walks up to the Comeback, looks into the window, turns around, then sits on a bench, wondering what's happened to his brother.
Although Opal tries to make light of the situation, wondering if the guard wants to join them in a game of bridge, Erica looks madder than a hornet's nest and points out that visiting hours are over.
