Bo and Hope continue to go through family photographs for the family tree web site. They talk of going to Jack and Jennifers for the party tomorrow and Hope has a hard time saying that they are doing this for Jack so they can cherish every moment before he dies. The phone rings but Hope begs Bo not to answer it. Bo insists on answering it anyway because they are on call. Bo becomes alarmed as he asks the caller for details. Hopes cell phone rings and its Frankie calling from the Salem Bridge to inform her of the accident he has come across. Hope and Bo end their respective calls by telling the person that they are on their way. They each confirm that their calls were about the same thing and both rush out the door.
Police are covering the scene as Patrick and Billie join Frankie on the bridge. Billie explains that she and Patrick were also out looking for Jack. Frankie suggests that the car that went off the bridge was Jacks car but Billie doesnt want to even think it. Frankie fears that Jack could be dead. Bo and Hope arrive on the bridge and are informed of why Frankie, Patrick, and Billie are there as well as their suspicions about Jack. Frankie shows Bo and Hope the paint on the guardrail that matches Jacks car but adds that he didnt hear any cries for help or see any bodies floating in the river. Bo offers to coordinate the search and rescue team. Patrick offers to help but Bo is reluctant to accept his offer. Patrick walks off. Hope tries to convince Bo to let Patrick help but Bo still refuses and walks away. Frankie suggests to Billie that Jack could have intentionally drove his car off the bridge but Billie thinks her talk got through to Jack. Patrick consoles Hope and Hope tells him about how Jack saved Jennifer from going off the bridge once. Hope becomes upset at the memory of almost losing who she thought was her son, J.T. that day and now how it could be Jack in the river. Bo comes over with Officer Wilson, soon joined by Billie and Frankie, who informs them that through bridge video surveillance, they were able to determine that the car belonged to Jack but that it only went into skids. The video didnt show the car going into the water. Bo orders Officer Wilson to get divers into the water anyway.
Patrick rejoins the group as Hope tells Frankie that he should inform Jennifer. Frankie wants to wait for more concrete news but Hope wants Frankie to go now so that someone is with Jennifer at the house. Billie joins Hope in telling Frankie that Jennifer needs him to be there especially if the news isnt good. Frankie agrees to go only after Bo promises to handle things and to call with any news. Two EMS officers walk up to Bo and inform him that eight kids skating on the lake fell through the ice so all the divers are tied up at that scene. Bo refuses to wait on them. The EMS officers inform him that they have the wet suits but no one knows how to dive. Bo announces that he knows how to dive and will be going in. Bo leaves with the EMS officers.
Bo prepares to dive and rejects Patricks offer to help. Hope cautions Bo against diving but Bo insists that he has to go. Hope and Billie counter by begging Bo to let Patrick dive with him. Hope reminds Bo about how Patrick has saved their lives in the past. Bo agrees to let Patrick handle his air hose. Hope cautions Bo to be careful and Billie steps away, unable to remain standing there and watching them kiss. Patrick notes Billies reaction and accuses Billie of still loving Bo. Billie insists that she doesnt love Bo in that manner and is only worried about Chelsea losing her father. Patrick returns to tending to the air hose. Bo promises to come back to Hope, checks that Patrick is ready, and then jumps into the river. Bo yells back for Patrick to send down the air hose and Patrick complies. Hope crouches down by the edge of the bridge and asks God to let Bo find Jack and bring them both back alive.
Billie joins Patrick and Hope by the edge and Patrick informs them that hes worried since Bo hasnt signaled them and notes how the air hose doesnt feel right. Hope calls out to Bo to ask if he can hear her. Bo is stuck at the bottom of the river desperately trying to get his foot free from the bridge framing.
The doorbell rings and they rush to the door thinking its Jack but its Frankie instead. Frankie tells them that he didnt find Jack. Jennifer cant believe that Frankie didnt find out anything. Jennifer begs Frankie for any information. Frankie insists he doesnt have anything to tell her and couldnt find Jack. Jennifer starts to have a bad feeling about the situation and Abby tries to reassure her by mentioning how they called the hospital but found no record of Jack there. Frankie is surprised to hear this. Jennifer frantically demands to know where Jack is.
