Another cop appears and hands Hal an envelope worth interest. Inside are fake IDs for several people, and this gives Hal all he needs. He confronts Danny with the evidence obtained from his apartment and demands again to know where Jack is.
Carly and Rosanna speak to some truckers about Jack. Rosanna gets the man to recall if they filled up with gas as Hal calls. Carly gives Hal the details she knows and vice versa.

He tells her he's pulled Julia's credit cards and that she should come back to where he is. Carly quietly hangs up. Carly wants to continue, but Ro insists she should go to Hal and allow him to lead her to Jack. Carly feigns agreement and ducks into the bathroom.

After hitting the sheets, Jack and Julia decide to focus on new beginnings and their new life together. There will be no more threats from Les, as everyone thinks they went to Nashville, so there are no more worries, Jack declares to his adoring wife. They reiterate their love for one another and share a tender kiss.
Rosanna returns to Julia's without Carly and explains how a waitress informed her of Carly hitching a ride with a trucker. Hal knows how far Carly's determination goes.
Carly sits pretty in a trucker's rig as she tells him of her search for her life. She asks him to spread the word to other truckers and is disappointed when he can't do it. He asks about her compass and she recalls Jack giving it to her. She whispers her hope that it will work.
Barbara returns and reveals that the metal is cooling off for now in a safe place. Rick declares his love for his new family and expresses his desire for a life with her.
Dom leaves a disgusted Lucy as Dusty approaches her. She's peeved he messed with Aaron. He reminds her that it's Aaron's choice, and he wouldn't like her keeping this from happening. Lucy relents, but she still looks concerned.
Jack and Julia lay in bed and discuss their new life. Jack thinks they should get a puppy, which Julia sees as J.J.'s plan. They kiss and cuddle, content in their love.
Carly is a bit uptight as the trucker tries to joke with her. Hal calls and blasts her for ditching Rosanna. He orders her home, but she refuses. Hal then gets word on a Julia sighting, which Carly overhears. Carly hangs up and asks the driver to floor it to Louisville.
Hal leaves an angry message for Carly and then asks Rosanna if she could return to Oakdale for the kids, which Rosanna quickly agrees to.
Rick's obvious affection for Barbara annoys her as she struggles to keep him at bay by worrying that they will be caught and then separated. He agrees and requests that she think of him while she dreams; then he leaves. Barbara responds that in her world, they were called nightmares.
Dusty announces Ryan Cabrera.
The song plays through a montage of: Dusty asking Lucy to dance; A tearful Emily reading a note from Alli left on the back of her receipt that reads: "Just because I hate you doesn't mean I don't love you;" Alli watching Aaron practice on his punching bag; Carly dreams of some special moments with Jack, like their first bath, Sage's birth and their last day together; And Jack going through some bags, where he finds Julia's hidden stash of his badge and identification as Jack Snyder, Oakdale PD. He looks to his blissfully sleeping "wife".
