Kendall says that Ryan was in the ER when Adamís body was brought in. Kendall says that Adam was murdered, but then realizes that Erica already knew because she didnít look surprised. Erica says that someone has been threatening Adamís life on a daily basis lately and asks if there is any idea of who killed Adam. Kendall says that Erica already knew about it because she saw it in Ericaís eyes. Erica says that Kendall is being ridiculous and not thinking clearly.

Little Adam says that Grandpa David took him to bed when the lights went out, but came to see Grandpa Adam. J.R. tells Krystal that David did this, but she says that he didnít. J.R. says that he saw David at the gate and David was in the house, so he tells Natalia to tell Jesse what she heard.

Erica says that she was at the Yacht Club taking a bath. Kendall points out that there is mud on Ericaís shoes. Erica says that she must have stepped in some mud on his way to the hospital.

Jesse apologizes for not calling Ryan and says that it has been one hell of an evening. Ryan says that they both know who took Emma and that he will handle it himself. Jesse says that Ryan isnít going anywhere because Ryan made himself a part of the murder investigation by covering for Zach at the hospital. Jesse tells an officer to cuff Ryan and Ryan struggles with an officer at the door. Zach tells Jesse to let Ryan go because he had no idea what was going on. Jesse says that Ryan is being held for questioning because he deliberately lied to an officer of the law to give Zach time to carry out his plan.

Jesse says that almost everyone in town wanted Adam dead and that nobody is going anywhere until he figures out what happened.

J.R. says that Tad showed up and took the gun before he could pull the trigger. J.R. says that the next thing he remembers was getting water thrown in his face by some woman. J.R. says that he was on his way to the kitchen and bumped into Annie in the hallway. J.R. asks if he can go to the hospital.

Jesse asks for Krystalís shoes for evidence and she agrees. Jesse tells Krystal not to disappear because there will be more questions.

Krystal asks David about Tad. David says that Tad made it through the surgery, but they have to wait until he wakes up to see the extent of the damage. Krystal asks if David killed Adam and David says that someone beat him to it. Krystal says that Zach confessed to killing Adam, but that Jesse doesnít believe that Zach did it.

Kendall says that she needs to get back to the hospital. Jesse asks about Kendallís whereabouts. Kendall says that she went to the chapel to pray and then needed to get some air, so she went to the roof. Jesse says that Kendall seems detached. Kendall says that she doesnít know Zach anymore, so nothing he could have done would surprise her. Kendall remembers aiming her gun at Adam, but dropping it and running away when Zach spotted her and says that she never left the hospital. Jesse asks if anyone can corroborate her story. Kendall remembers Ryan grabbing her arm while she was running through the Chandler grounds and says no. Kendall asks why Ryan is there and he says that he has been asking the same thing.
