Lanie is resting in the hospital when she suddenly awakes and looks around her. She sees Colin bringing Nora out of the hospital room. Nora seems unconscious and she doesn’t move as he carries her. He turns to Lanie and makes a sarcastic remark. She watches as he carries Nora into the elevator and disappears. Lanie wakes up and finds that she has been dreaming and when she checks for Nora, she finds that she is gone. Antonio arrives and Lanie tells him that Nora is gone. He makes a call to report that Nora is missing. The police begin looking for her. Lanie tells Antonio that she didn’t know that Nora had left on her own. She told Bo that she would try to help him in anyway that she could.
Nora has returned to Colin’s house. She is in the room looking at the things all over the room. She picks up the teddy and as she does, she hears a noise behind her. She turns and it is…Bo. She didn’t to be sitting around. He reminds her that this is a crime scene and she shouldn’t be there. He wants to call an ambulance and have her returned to the hospital. She is grateful for his concern, but she is not going to stay in the hospital waiting for something to happen. She has to stop playing detective. She is not going to be a victim. Bo understands what she is saying. This makes Bo’s job harder. She could have at least told him what she was doing. Maybe he could have helped her out. She is sorry to be giving him a hard time. She knew that something terrible had happened and she knew that it had happened to her. The feelings that she has are so powerful. The details are right in front of her and she feels like she can just reach out and touch them. It is different for him because he wasn’t there. It is a horrible feeling. She sees her necklace and puts her hands on them. She holds them in her hands. She had to come there and find out if the answers are there. She knows that he tried to seduce her. He thought that she wanted him and she thought that he was mad. She remembers something else. She remembers him coming into the room with a wash basin and a cloth and he put it on a table. He then pulled back the covers and he bathed her. She thought that the water was warm, but she doesn’t remember if that happened recently or the time before. No, it has to be last summer because she remembers the pain in her hip and her legs. It is all one great big jumble. Bo thinks that she has to give it a little more time. She wants her life back and she can’t do this. She was given a muscle relaxation substance and something else. He thinks that she was given something to take the fight out of her. She is fighting now. He took her memory and took her will. Bo thinks that her will is healthy because she made it all the way there from the hospital. She gets an idea. She wants Bo to pretend to be Colin. Bo doesn’t want to pretend to be Colin. Nora will not let go of the idea. He will do it, but then they are going to leave. She makes him stand in a special place and she takes a stand in a special place. She needs a prop or something. She needs something like a syringe for him to hold. Bo searches for some syringes and finds one. He removes it from the package and turns to face her. Immediately she remembers something. She falls into a chair nearby and Bo goes to comfort her. He thinks that they should leave. She knows that this is the only way to get her memories back. Next, she takes off her coat and walks through the room slowly. She closes her eyes and lies on the bed. Bo thinks that this is going too far. She tells him to sit ‘over there’. He does and then she tells him to come at her with the needle. He starts walking to her and unknown to the both of them; someone is walking up the stairs and can see Bo walking slowly to Nora with the needle.
Antonio has managed to reach Bo and he learns that he is with Nora and that she is okay. Lanie is relieved. She knew that Colin couldn’t have possibly have taken her away. Antonio wants to know why she is so sure of that. Antonio wonders if he can help her and she tells him that there is nothing that anyone can do for her now. She walks away from him.
