They further inform Jason they mistakenly thought they saw and heard a boat yet they are still stuck there.

He gets ready to shut the door, tells her he wishes her a pleasant evening and tells her he hopes that her ex realizes what he's lost. After closing the door, however, he opens it again and asks if she may be somehow associated with Crimson magazine. She replies yes. She's the editor in chief. He then asks if she is Nina Reeves. She confirms yes and he admits that he grew up as a connoisseur of the finer things and is interested in finding out more about her. He knows about the Quartermaines and Cassadines and she informs him Dillon works alongside her. He tells her he knows (or knew) Nikolas. She reminds him she does not know his name.

Yet she notices that he has a cut above his eye. He tells her that somebody hurt him and it sounds like what happened to him might have some significance. He indicates that he's interested in Nina.

Then they returned to this place. Yet Jordan informs them that Mrs. Prescott has died unexpectedly right after Franco was seen in her room. She was given Derisifol just like the other murder victims, which Franco has access to. Also, right after he left Mrs. Prescott's room, shortly before she suddenly died, he had a vial in his pocket of that very drug. He protests that he simply picked it up off the floor. Jordan then concludes to him if he is innocent of charges, then he should not have a problem proving that by submitting to a test. Yet he tells them he won't be part of a witch hunt and they need to get a warrant. Right then, Elizabeth takes him aside and asks why he wont submit to a voluntary investigation in order to disprove the accusations. He replies that he has reasons. Jordan then declares that if he wants to refuse a search that is fine. However, they have enough cause to hold him for 24 hours. And so, she concludes, he is coming with them right now. Yet he protests that they have nothing on him and asks what type of public apology he can expect from them. He goes out the door and they walk after him.

He reminds her that he knows her. Whenever someone proves a point to her, she tells them she agrees and then goes behind their back. He further explains that Josslyn called him to inform him that her mom agreed with her wishes right after very adamantly protesting the reasons why she would not.

Right then, Kristina enters, Morgan comes out and they talk alone while Sonny takes Josslyn to see her father and mother. Kristina informs her half brother that their mutual dad found out that she had an encounter with a woman. She admits that she did not intend to tell him. It happened by accident when he walked by to notice her and Parker kissing. She informs Morgan all about how things unfolded with Parker and remarks that she does appreciate that both of her parents were accepting of her sexuality. Hearing that, Morgan admits to his half sister that he is kind of envious of her. She now has the option of dating either dudes or chicks, he reminds her. Yet she clarifies to him that it is complicated as to her sexual orientation. She further informs him that right when she thought she might have a future with Parker, her former professor told her it could never happen again. He tells her he's sorry for that and asks about Aaron, to which she admits she lost him also. Now without either prospects of relationships in her life, she's alone and realizes maybe it's what she deserves. She asks Morgan how he would feel or behave if Kiki revealed to him, as she has revealed to Aaron, that she is seeing a woman. Morgan admits it would devastate him if Kiki dumped him for anyone. He asks if she really is in love with Parker. She admits that it's kind of a moot point right now. Morgan assures her she is not alone.

At The Metro Court, Jax protests to Carly he knows that she has raised their daughter alone and love Josslyn just as much as he does. She hopes he realizes that the transplant saved Josslyn's life and so she needs to know where it comes from. He urges her to let this go and not keep a secret from their daughter. Josslyn rushes to welcome her father back. Jax then remarks to Sonny that he realizes his visit has come as a surprise to Josslyn, to which Sonny comments that it may be a surprise to Carly and to Josslyn but he (himself) is not at all surprised as to why Jax is suddenly in town. Jax then goes off to dinner with his daughter leaving Sonny and Carly alone where he asks his wife what the hell Jax is doing in town.
Alone with Sam, Jason builds a fire and she asks if he was hurt, to which he replies that nothing serious has happened. Dante gathers firewood and assures Jason he will be cleared of all charges for Nikolas' death. Knowing that Nikolas' family mourns the death that really has happened however, Ava comes by and admits she was with Nikolas and helped him, to which Sam reminds her that she helped Nikolas get away with framing Jason for murder. Yet Ava comments it no longer matters. She just wants to get home to her girls soon. Laura returns to Lulu and comments that if a rescue boat sees their signal fire, hopefully everyone will be ok. Lulu assures her mom they will get through this. They have to. She reveals to her mom, for the first time, when she was in the basement of the abandoned house, she came across a skeleton and right beside it she found her father's personal keepsakes. Her mother does not want to consider the possibility of Luke being dead although they realize since they have not seen or heard from Luke Spencer in a long time, they must consider the possibility. Lulu shows her mom the bracelet and earrings that look like they could be Luke's. Laura urges her daughter not to jump to conclusions, reminding her it's entirely possible that Helena took Luke's stuff a while back when he was kidnapped and planted them on the skeleton in order to confuse and cause them all to go on a wild goose chase, as they both know all too well how Helena operates. Yet Lulu asks her mom what if their theory is wrong. What if Helena finally won and her dad is dead? Jason and Dante build and replenish the fire. Laura thanks Jason for saving everyone's life and tells him she realizes he would not be there in the first place, were it not for her son. She further informs Jason she realizes Nikolas went down a very dark path the last few years of his life. Yet she just wishes that people could realize what a good man her son was throughout most of his life. They hear something and can see a light somewhere. Yet Laura is worried and doubting when she notices the bracelet that belonged to her kid's father, Luke.
Sonny tells Carly that he knows, as well as Jax knows, that she was not about to call off the search for Josslyn's kidney and has lied to her daughter. She admits to her husband she knows that but did not want Jax to call her out on that. Sonny then declares that the last thing he wants to do is agree with Jax. Yet, he warns her, they need to be mindful of the fact that Jax is onto her and he cannot be trusted.
Jax goes with his daughter to The Floating Rib and she asks why her mom had to make such a big deal out of potential complications arising form her kidney when she is totally healthy. He protests that he realizes her mom simply has concerns for her daughter's well being although he agrees that Carly was in the wrong with what she has been doing. Yet, when Josslyn gets up to go to the bathroom and Jax is alone at the table, he gets on his phone and tells his “secret contact” he has an “update”, as he reveals that he is secretly investigating and spying upon Carly regarding the kidney search and remarks that Sonny is right now a "wild card."
On the island, when Laura confirms that Nikolas is dead and so is Luke, Lulu tells her they have to get back and be there for Spencer.
After Valentin sleeps with Nina, as soon as she is asleep and unaware, he gets on his phone and hears the message Spencer left for his dad about meeting him at Camp Showbiz, which he makes a note of.
