John talks about the ransom and says Marlena's right that the last thing they want to do is make Orpheus think his back is against the wall so he doesn't take it out on Joey. John agrees with the ransom and offers to pay him face to face in exchange for Joey. Steve questions if he's sure about this.

Kayla asks if he thinks he will go for that. John says if he and Steve can approach him the right away. Marlena assures Kayla that Joey will find a way out of this.
