Roman walks into Abes office to find Lexie, Abe, Chelsea and Stephanie. They all look worried. Roman suspects Decker, but Chelsea says its about the group coming back from Ireland. Abe says theyve lost radio contact. Roman asks if theyre still visible on radar. Abe nods. Theyre on the same course and going the same speed. Abe thinks theres a bigger problem. The pilots didnt adjust their controls when they were supposed to, and now theyre way off course. They could run out of fuel in less than an hour.
On Johns plane, we pan to red numbers reading just under thirty minutes. In the cockpit, Steve complains of the cold. John recaps their situation. They have less than a half hour of oxygen and less than an hours worth of fuel. The good news is that the crash wont kill them. At this rate, theyll have suffocated long before then. Steve nukes. Hes tired of Johns crap! Their family and friends are back theyre and theyre not just going to give up! John says it isnt in his vocabulary. They have to try to dump the fuel again before the air runs out. They have to get control of the plane again. Steve asks if he can do that/ John isnt sure that matters. He asks about the pilots, and Steve says they didnt make it. John sighs and wonders who did this.
Back in the cabin, the plane pitches and rolls. Chloe and Phillip notice that theyre low on oxygen. Shawn yells out that he and Belle have three working ones near them. Belle panics. Claire is freezing and Belle cant seem to keep her warm. Kayla wonders if John and Steve are having any luck. Marlena thinks they would have heard by now if they had. She tells Kayla they have a little under an hours worth of oxygen. Shawn asks Hope if Bo is ok. Hope says hell be fine. Shawn, Sr. looks on and lowers his mask. Hope urges him to put it back on. Shawn stares. Shawn says no. Bo needs to live, and so does she. Hope pleads with him. She cant be held responsible for letting him die. Shawn says his mind is made up. Hope wants to go get Kayla. She has the right to know what hes going to do. Shawn relents, and Hope staggers over to Kayla. She asks her to come over. Kayla heads over and falls into a seat as the plane lurches again. She asks Hope how long hes been out. Hope tells her that Bo is refusing the oxygen. He says he probably wont live anyway. Not only that, but his father wants to do the same thing. He wants them to let him die.
Caroline comes in with Max and asks whats going on. Roman tells her that Abe is on the phone right now. Theyre trying to track the plane down. They dont have all the facts yet, so they need to stay calm. Stephanie thanks Max for coming as a peaked Chelsea stares off into space. She cant believe this is happening. Max thinks they need to stay calm until they get all of the facts. Abe hangs up and tells them they still dont know anything new. Caroline thinks everything sounds all right--their radio is just out--but Roman tells her about the fuel potentially running out. Theres no safe place for them to land. However, Roman knows that John, Bo, and Steve wont sit around doing nothing. Abe frets. He just wish he knew what was going on. It could be a mechanical problem--and it could be something worse.
Chloes eyes shut and Phillip shakes her. She has to stay awake and keep breathing. Belle cries out for Marlena. Claire is so cold, and she doesnt know what to do. Marlena grabs her hand and soothes her. Shawn asks about his mom, dad, and grandpa, whom he cant see. Marlena promises him that theyll be fine. For now, he has to stay clam and keep quiet. Talking just wastes their oxygen. Belle tells Marlena that she loves her. Marlena grips her hand and tells her that she loves her, too.
Kayla and Hope insist that they wont let Shawn do this, but he insists. Kayla tells him that shes pregnant. He thinks its wonderful news. She begs him to consider that. She wants her child to know him. Shawn wishes that could be so, but that child is going to lose everyone, and its chance at life, if they dont let him go. Kayla argues, but Shawn insists. Its his time, and hes got a lot of people waiting on him up there. Kayla sobs. He asks her to tell Caroline one thing-- hell miss her most of all. Kayla vows to put the mask on his face once he passes out. Shawn says no. She has to let him go before the devil knows hes left. She knows this is right. Shawn closes his eyes. The plane lurches, throwing Hope from her seat. Kayla wails, POP!
Steve tells John that there has to be something they can do. John nods. They either have to regain control or dump the fuel. Steve thinks theyll drop pretty fast if they go that route. John nods. But theyll have a little time to regain control of the instruments, and they wont suffocate. Steve goes to work on the two control panels above their heads.
Kayla checks Shawn Sr.s pulse and wails. Hope cries. She cant believe hes really gone. She covers his face with a blanket. Kayla asks if they should tell the others. Hope shakes her head. Not yet. We flash to Chloe, Phillip, and Marlenas panicked faces. Belle announces that its getting harder to breathe. She bawls. What are they going to do? Marlena says theyll continue to pray and conserve oxygen. Hope frets and stares at Bo, whos unconscious, but now has a face mask of his own. Hope turns to Kayla, her eyes full of tears. Is what Bo has--is he going to die? She begs for the truth. Before Kayla can answer, the plane shakes and the lights flicker. Someone sobs quietly.
Steve opens the control panel to find sticks of dynamite. He groans. It looks like its all hooked up to some kind of small explosive. He asks Bo if he knows which wires control the fuel dump and control panel. John isnt sure, but it must be one another. He hopes Steve finds the flight controls first, though.
Abe and Roman try to get some answers on their phones as max tries unsuccessfully to call some of the people on the plane. Roman hangs up and tells them that no terrorist activity is suspected, so they all need to keep their cool. This could still be a radio problem. Abe hangs up his phone and tells the group that a Greenland airport is tracking them. Caroline ask how long theyve got until they run out of fuel. Abe says they havent got long. Max chews his lip. Stephanie and Chelsea pale.
Steve works frantically at the control panel as the clock counts backward from fifteen seconds. John urges him to hurry. Hes got to repair one of those wires ASAP. As the clock ticks down to zero, John yells, NOW!
Chloe runs out of air and starts gasping. Phillip follows suit. Chloe cries. She doesnt want to die. Neither does Phillip. Shawn and Belle also run out of air. Marlena does as well. Belle panics and gasps for air. She calls out for Claire. Marlena tells her everything will be fine. Claire wont feel a thing. Shell just stay asleep. Belles face crumples. She cant take this. Marlena sobs. Shawn struggles to stay conscious, but fails. Both he and Belle relax and slip into unconsciousness. Marlena calls out for John, and he, too, passes out. Hope and Kaylas air runs out shortly after. Hope wraps her arms around Bo and tells him she loves him. Kayla hugs Shawn, Sr. and cries.
Just as Steve works on the last wire, he passes out. John rips off his mask, and finds the portable tank he had earlier. He sucks the last few breaths of air out of it and splices the last two wires together.
Back in the cabin, every passenger is unconscious.
Stephanie thinks that something is definitely wrong up there, and its not just the radio. Abe and Roman try to convince everyone not to panic before they know all of the facts, but Chelsea isnt buying it. No one will tell them anything. Abe soothes them. The ISA, Homeland Security, and NORAD are all working on this. As soon as they know something, theyll contact them. All they can do is wait. Caroline cries and stares out of the window, And pray.
The passengers on the plane remain unconscious as John struggles with the wiring. The fuels tanks drain and the plane plummets. The lights flicker in the cabin and Belle slumps forward as the plane dives. Steve wakes up in the cockpit as John struggles to gain control of the plane. John says he needs help. They managed to dump the fuel, but now they have no controls. He needs Steves help. Steve and John work frantically on the wires as the plane drops. As the altitude drops, Phillip wakes up with a gasp. Hope does, too. John and Steve find the right wires and John says they have it. He instructs Steve to pull back on the steering. Inside the cabin, Hope gasps. Phillip stares. John and Steve pull back on the planes throttle will all of their might. Phillip looks up in awe as the plane rights itself. John tells Steve theyve regained some control. Marlena wakes up with a start and looks at Claire, whos still breathing. She calls out for Belle and Shawn. Belle reaches out for Claire. Marlena tells her that John has control of the plane again. Marlena cradles Claire. Thank God they made it. Phillip soothes Chloe as she awakens with a gasp. Bo wakes up choking, and Hope hold him. She calls out for Kayla, whos still out of it. John starts to tell Steve about their landing plan, when Marlena calls form the cabin on one of the plane; phones. John tells her theyre under ten thousand feet, so everyone should be able to breathe. She asks if they can land. John says yes, but its sooner and harder than everyones going to like. She smiles with rapture. She loves him. John tells her thats good to know and hangs up. Marlena tells everyone that theyre about to attempt an emergency landing, so everyone needs to buckle up and brace themselves.
Chelsea wonders if a hijacker could be after John or Phillips money. Stephanie nods. She heard Chloe was in trouble with the European police, too. Abe says theres no evidence of foul play as of yet. Caroline reminds them that the plane is almost out of fuel. Chelsea and Stephanie freak out. Lexie tells everyone its too soon to start thinking the worst. Max grumps. Roman knows theres something really wrong hear. Roman snaps. He knows that, and if they could do anything else, they would. Max apologizes. Lexie asks if they can call anyone else. Roman says no. Abe suggests they all go back to the pub. They all refuse. The phone rings. Abe answers and is put on hold. He tells the group that hes getting patched through to someone else. Theres been a change in the planes status.
Chloe panics. Theyre going down too fast, arent they? Phillip consoles her. At least theyre still alive. Claire cries as Belle tries to soothe her. Shawn wants to go up front to check on things, but Belle grabs him. She needs him here. Kayla buckles her seatbelt. In the cockpit, John struggles to keep control of the plane. Back in the cabin, the plane lurches violently. Several people shriek. Bo and Hope grab onto one another. Bo notices the blanket over Shawn Sr.s face and struggles to get out of his seat. Whats wrong with his Pop? Bo pulls the blanket off and shakes his father. Hope says shes sorry. Bo gapes. Kayla sobs.
Abe tells the group that the plane just dropped off of the radar. Stephanies eyes fill with tears. Chelsea asks what that means. Caroline chokes back tears. Did they crash?
John struggles with the plane as Steve spots land outside. John tells him to keep the nose up. He asks if Steve is a betting man. Steve says only when the odds are in his favor. John smiles strangely and tells him to forget it.
Bo begs Shawn to wake up. Kayla explains that he gave his oxygen up so that they could all live. Bo sobs and yells. No, it was supposed to be him. Hope cries. Kayla tells Bo that he died a hero. A sobbing Bo sits back down next to Hope and she holds him as he cries. Bo wants to go up front, but Hope begs him to stay with her. He agrees .Kayla whispers that she loves Steve.
Steve prays that God cushions the blow a bit when they land. John looks at him like he has two heads.
Abe doesnt know that they crashed. They just know that they disappeared from the radar. Abe tells someone on the phone that he wants updates ASAP. Everyone else looks on desperately. Caroline pulls out her rosary and begins to pray.
Belle and Shawn say they love each other. Chloe cries out for God to help them as the plane continues its nosedive. Bo and Hope say they love each other, too. Kayla stares.
John tells Steve to keep the nose up as he pokes around the controls. They have no landing gear. Steve groans.
Roman tells the group that NORAD is sending planes to the projected crash site. Stephanie sighs defeatedly. Theyve crashed, then. Lexie tells them not to panic. Max soothes a sobbing Caroline. Stephanie sighs, Please let them be ok.
John instructs Steve to pull back as hard as he can. Shawn calls across the aisle to Bo and Hope and tells them he loves them. They love him, too. Marlena and Belle do the same, and then Belle and Shawn. Phillip shouts, This is it! John grabs Steve and says, This is it. everyone screams as the cabin is plunged into darkness. The plane dives sharply. Everyone screams.
Stephanie asks, So our family has disappeared and no one knows where they are?
Chelsea asks, You guys think that Stefano DiMera was behind this?
Max tells Lexie, Your family is evil. She yelps, Max!
Abe tells Roman and Chelsea, That was the FFA. Johns plane is down.
