He calls out John’s name.

Tony pulls John’s head above water and realizes that he isn’t breathing but has a pulse.

Shawn says that he was hoping she was getting a shipment in and that he was hoping to see it. Maya says that she has a customer who collects antique models of sailing ships and she thinks she may have found one in a village in Vietnam as she asks if Shawn is familiar with the place. Shawn says he isn’t so Maya explains the legend that if an exact model replica of the real ships were kept safe and dry, then the real ship would return safely.

Lucas tells Cassie that he wanted her and he thought she wanted him too. Cassie says it wouldn’t have happened between them because it wasn’t real. Lucas says that every guy there is pretending to be someone they’re not, they only like the girls because the girls tell them what they want to hear and the only reason the girls like the guys is because they’re being paid to.

John tells Tony that if they make it out of there, they are going to have to tread water for a long time or they’ll drown. Tony says that the water isn’t rising so they can just wait there for the coast guard to find them. John says that there is a limited amount of oxygen where they are trapped, once they use it up, they’re going to black out and drown. Tony is getting upset and John tells him to calm down because he uses more oxygen when he is agitated. John says he only came back for some air and he is going back down. Tony says he will go back down this time and John tells him not to forget to write. John laughs and Tony dives down.

Lucas tells Cassie that real love is being sick as a dog and still getting up in the middle of the night to take care of your kid and having no money and still figuring out how to pay your bills and having a smile on your face no matter how tough things get. Lucas adds that that is what soul mates do; they stick by each other no matter how bad it gets, through the joy and pain, through the rewards and the struggles. Cassie asks if he has that yet and Lucas says no but he has plenty of time. Cassie says that time is wasting and he should get started. Lucas tells Cassie to worry about her own life. Cassie says she has and this is the only place where she can feel good about herself. Lucas says that is the most ridiculous thing he has ever heard.

Nicole says she was going to surprise Victor with a private party and some Havana cigars. She asks Abe if she is going to get into trouble for having the cigars. Abe pretends that he didn’t hear her say anything about cigars. Nicole’s phone vibrates in her coat pocket and she excuses herself by saying she is going to get more towels. Victor asks Brady if it really could be someone from the club. Brady says it is all he can think of unless the shot wasn’t intended for him at all and that would only leave Victor.

Nicole goes back inside the mansion and answers the phone. It is Larry who is now at the motel they agreed to meet at after the shooting. Nicole tells Larry that he almost hit Brady. Larry says that that is what he gets for working with amateurs. Nicole pleads with Larry for more time but Larry says they have to do it fast so he’s going to shoot Victor tomorrow. Nicole hangs up.

Hope flashes her lights and honks her horn to distract Jesse. Bo takes the opportunity to knock the gun away from Jesse and punch him out. Hope joins them and Bo thanks her for the distraction. Hope gives Tommy the handcuffs and asks if he’d like to do the honors. Bo apologizes to Tommy for what just happened but Tommy says he wasn’t scared. Bo says that they have their SUV back. Hope agrees and they hug.

Maya says that Shawn would be the stud muffin on a pastry cart. Shawn says that that isn’t very romantic but Maya says that no one was talking about romance. Shawn says he has to go as Maya says that it has been swell and to come spy on her again sometime. Maya’s phone rings and she tells Shawn bye and to close the door behind him. The caller tells Maya that the bomb went off and she asks about the yacht and says that that is perfect.

Tony asks John how long he thinks they have. John says he would be able to answer that if he could get some oxygen to his brain. Tony says that that is comforting as John says that he knows how to make the air last twice as long if only one of them breathes it. John asks Tony why he saved him and Tony asks the same of John. John says he wasn’t thinking and mentions that this is ironic.
