Paul is cautious about opening the door, but Meg calls out that it is just her, so he opens it. She tells him she got the two of them passports, using their fake IDs. Paul seems happy to run off with Meg, but Meg is sad. She sits on the bed and almost tears up. She reveals to Paul that she feels like a failure as a person. She talks about how she will miss Holden and her nieces and nephews. She is concerned that maybe she and Paul should go their separate ways after they reach their destination, because trouble follows her. Paul hugs Meg to give her some comfort. He tells her that if she didnt go with him, then he would be very disappointed.
Emily heads towards Dusty when she sees him in the Lakeview lobby. Dusty is headed out, and Emily tries to get him to slow down so that they can talk. Dusty tries to brush her off, but Emily is persistent. Dusty turns to her and tells her to say what she has to say. She tells him that Paul is alive and that he and Meg are having an affair. Dusty makes a smart comment about Meg having an affair with a dead man. Emily has to do some more convincing to get him to see that she is serious. She tells Dusty that she saw the two of them together. She says that Meg has been hiding Paul and helping him get better. She reminds Dusty of all of the antibiotics and hospital supplies that Meg has been caught with. Dusty asks Emily what Meg would be healing Paul from. Emily looks away — I guess she didnt think about that. She tells Dusty that Paul was shot. He asks her how she would know that. She tells him that she was there when it happened. Dusty asks why she didnt go to the police. After some hesitation, she admits that she would be incriminating herself. Dusty realizes that Emily wants revenge on Paul and is upset that she saw him with Meg. Emily looks angry and says that Paul should pay and not be able to get away. She tells Dusty that Paul is going to go after Jennifer. This really gets his attention. He tells Emily to tell him everything, from the very beginning. Dusty vows that he will handle Paul. Emily offers to take Dusty to Pauls exact hiding spot.
Meanwhile, Paul tenderly convinces Meg not to be so hard on herself. He points out that she is beautiful and bright, adding that he cant understand why she wants him as company. This gets Meg smiling. They finally decide to continue with their plans to go away. Meg heads off to make some more arrangements and tells him that she will see him in an hour.
Maddie sits at a table at Java and waits for Nate to arrive. He comes up behind her and greets her before joining her at the table. Nate is flirtatious. Maddie tells him that she loves hanging out with him. Nate grabs her hands, thinking that it is a sign, but she pulls back. She gently tells Nate that they cant see each other anymore. Nate is confused, and then he realizes that it is because of Casey. Meanwhile, Casey walks in but quickly tries to be discreet when he sees them together. He tries to eavesdrop. Nate doesnt get upset with Maddie. He jokes with her about copying her calculus notes. As soon as he leaves, Casey walks up to her, full of attitude, wanting to know what that was all about. He angrily tells her that he thought they had come to an understanding about each other. Maddie smiles at his jealousy and tells him what went on. Casey doesnt want to sit down and talk with her, because Nate sat there, so Maddie stands to face him. Once she convinces him that she doesnt want Nate, Casey leans in for a kiss. Before it happens, Margo calls Casey on his cell phone and demands that he and Maddie come to the station right now. When they arrive at the station, Margo takes them into the interrogation room and lights into them about what a serious crime they committed. They both apologize. Margo tells Maddie that she thought she was a good influence on Casey, but now she wants them to keep their distance from each other if Maddie wants to stay with them. When Margo leaves, Maddie sits at a table and is upset. She doesnt have anywhere to go if Margo kicks her out. Casey is not that upset. He tells Maddie that his mom was just blowing off smoke and that things will be back to normal in a week. He tries to comfort her. He pulls her up next to him and tells her that he is not going to let anyone keep them apart. It is clear at this point that the two of them like each other. They hug and finally have a soft, sweet kiss.
