Chad starts sending a message to update Cameron and Abigail. Bo talks about getting word out to her friends. Daniel thinks there's got to be something else they can do. Bo says they need more information. Daniel reminds him that this is their daughter they are talking about. Hope returns from searching Chad's place and Daniel's storage where she found Melanie's passport. Bo says Melanie must not have left the country so Chad realizes that she didn't send the e-mail.
Melanie struggles with the rope and tries to get loose. Andrew tells Gabi that he decides how this goes and not her as he thought he made it clear. Andrew tells Gabi that he likes Melanie's company so she's not going anywhere. Andrew tells Gabi that she can't change his mind on that.
EJ tells Sami that if he does go to prison, he doesn't want the kids to see him. Sami hopes he doesn't end up in prison then. EJ notes that she seems kind of supportive. Sami jokes that she doesn't have a choice. EJ thinks it's because deep down she knows he didn't do it. EJ tells her that he couldn't kill Stefano and she knows he's innocent. EJ thanks her and they hug as Lucas arrives and says they've got to be kidding which surprises Sami. Lucas questions Sami supporting EJ and asks if he conned her into thinking he didn't kill Stefano. Lucas calls EJ a liar and a killer. Sami wants to explain but Lucas doesn't want to hear it. Lucas yells at EJ to stay away from his family from now on.
Rafe, Spencer, and Roman talk at the station about trying to get a warrant to search EJ's place. They talk about looking for evidence against EJ and how he didn't pass the lie detector. The phone rings and Rafe answers, asking the judge if they get their warrant.
Daniel and Chad wonder who would take Melanie and why.
Andrew plays Gabi the recording of their conversation. Gabi begs him to let Melanie go before the police find out and arrests him. Andrew reminds her that she'd be arrested too. Andrew brings up what Chad would say when he finds out that Gabi was in on it. Gabi admits it was wrong not to tell Chad that Melanie was there. Andrew tells Gabi that she's the reason Melanie is tied up. Gabi tells him it's not her fault. Andrew says no one is blaming her but she's still a part of it. Gabi warns him that the police could already have information about Melanie so they are going to get caught. Andrew tells her that she's going to get caught if she doesn't shut up so he starts to go ahead and send the recording to the police but Gabi struggles to stop him.
Daniel and Chad want to tear the town apart until they find Melanie. Hope and Bo return with a map as they try to track where the e-mail was sent. Bo wants to go door to door asking people if they have seen Melanie. They put her photo onto the computer. Chad looks at it and begins to have flashbacks of spending time with her when he took that photo.
Melanie remains tied up and starts to cry as she struggles against the rope.
Gabi takes the phone from Andrew and says she's in charge now as she will make sure the recording will never get to the police by deleting them. Andrew instead starts laughing.
EJ questions Lucas ordering him to stay away from his family. EJ reminds him that Sami is the mother of his children so he can't. Lucas tells him to go to his own apartment. EJ says his children live here so he will come whenever he wishes. Lucas refuses to allow that. Sami tries to intervene and explains to Lucas that EJ was only there for the kids. Lucas doesn't care and wants to protect his family. Lucas wants to keep his family as far away from EJ as possible. EJ asks Lucas if he really thinks he can keep him away from Sami.
Melanie thinks back to having dinner with Chad in the town square. Melanie finishes her thought and continues crying.
Gabi questions what Andrew is laughing at. Andrew calls her hilarious if she thinks the only copies of the recording is on the phone. Gabi gets worried and her phone rings. She answers a call from Chad. Chad asks her if anyone's heard from Melanie but she says she hasn't. Chad asks her to join them at the police station so she agrees to be on her way. Gabi worries that it could be a trap and they're on to them. Andrew tells her to just go and find out. Andrew takes his phone back and Gabi worries that he's sending the recordings. Andrew tells her that he's backing up the files now as he didn't really before. Gabi tells him she hates him and storms out.
Rafe finishes his call with the judge and informs Roman and Spencer that they got the warrant so they go on their way.
Someone wearing a mask sneaks into EJ's apartment and pulls out the black gloves that EJ had thrown in the dumpster and prepares to plant them in the apartment.
Sami tells Lucas that they were just talking about the kids. Lucas questions Sami backing EJ. EJ insists he did not kill Stefano. Lucas thinks he will be proven guilty and then will go down. Lucas orders EJ to stay away from his family. Lucas says the only thing that follows EJ is misery and they've had enough. EJ tells Lucas to go to hell. EJ tells Lucas that he loves his family and his children. EJ starts to say he also loves someone else which makes Lucas question who he's going to say he loves.

Lucas asks EJ again who he loves. EJ responds that he loved Stefano very much and he loves Lexie. Lucas calls it trouble for the rest of them and doesn't believe anything he says. Lucas brings up EJ and Will. Sami suggests it's not the right time. EJ reminds Lucas that Will works for him because he wants to. Lucas calls it too bad cause EJ's going to fire him. EJ wonders why he'd do that. Lucas warns EJ that if he doesn't fire Will then going to jail for murder will seem like a cakewalk compared to what he's going to do to him.
