Bonnie grabs the box of chocolates from Mimi and starts to devour them herself so they won’t be wasted on Jan. Bonnie offers Mimi one but Mimi refuses the offer. Bonnie savors the delicious pleasure of the chocolates, grateful for the chance to enjoy herself in the sort of sinful pleasure that has been absent in her life since Maggie came back. Mimi rolls her eyes. Bonnie notices Mimi’s displeasure and apologizes but stresses that Mimi needs to stop visiting Jan because it looks like the perp always returns to the scene of the crime. Mimi, angered, blurts out that what happened was an accident. Tek overhears Mimi and demands to know the truth.

Brady tells Lucas about needing a fourth man to enact John’s plan and when Lucas questions John’s agreement for this mission, Rex admits having hacked into John’s computer.

Rex hands Lucas a paper with an outline of the mission and its objectives. Lucas skims the paper. Lucas wants to know why the ISA shot down the plan if it was so great.

Caroline & Victor’s room:

Victor and Caroline cover up the vent with pillows to try and block the smoke coming into the room. They begin to cough as the room becomes clouded by smoke. Caroline suggests breaking the glass for more air but Victor cautions her not to because of the back draft. Victor watches Caroline continue to cough and choke on the smoke and asks if she is willing to risk the ramifications of breaking the glass. Caroline emphatically nods yes and Victor makes his way to the window. Victor uses a candlestick to break the glass in the window but it only makes the smoke worse. Victor curses the fact that Tony doesn’t even have an emergency alarm in the room and begins to bang on the door for help.

Castle hallway:

Jack yanks down the draperies from the wall and tells Roman, Cassie, and Marlena to wrap draperies around their own shoulders and then make their way through the flames.

Jack offers to go first to make sure its safe, covering his body and head with the drape and heads into the flames. Marlena and Cassie watch in shock as Jack screams.

Tek admits to Mimi and Bonnie that they have evidence linking her to Jan’s attack and are close to charging her with attempted murder.

Patrick’s car:

Patrick tells Jennifer about his cousin who is now in a wheelchair after being hit by a drunk driver.
