Todd calls Gabrielle from the plane. He tells her that Jack has aplastic anemia and that Blair knows he is sick but thinks it’s an iron deficiency. He asks her to keep Blair away from Jack and although she refuses at first because she feels that a mother has a right to know, he threatens her job and she agrees to help. He brings Nigel to Santa Domingo with him to search for Alex. Nigel begins to suspect that Jack is Todd and Blair’s biological son and Todd warns him to shut up. Then he changes this mind and converses about kharma and divine retribution, blaming himself for Jack’s illness. Nigel tries to explain that it’s nobody’s fault and that things happen because that’s just how life is.
Gabrielle attempts to comfort Blair while Blair responds by insulting her. She inadvertently tells Blair that Todd is on an airplane. Blair demands to know Gabrielle’s agenda, and gets her to admit that she’s lying.
