Troy tries to call Blair. Blair picks up her phone proclaiming, “It’s him”, she tells the bartender that she wants to start something with him. Nice and slow and get to know him.

But the inmate feels Jessica is just going to get even with this rotten man, that Antonio locked her up to keep her from following through with her plan.

Mitch is startled by the ringing phone. He doesn’t answer, instead he goes to the safe and finds the diamond missing. He tries to walk up the stairs but he falls back and falls to the floor. “Jessica”, he says.

Jennifer stands and watches Flash and Riley packing up. Finally, she walks to them. “Reverend Joey isn’t here”, Flash says before Jennifer speaks a word. “So you really don’t know where he is”, Jennifer asks. Flash says no and Jennifer tells her to tell Joey she is looking for him and he will know why. Jennifer walks out of The Garage and takes out her cell phone.

Joey sits at his desk after Andrew leaves, the phone rings. The answering machine picks up, after the tone, Jennifer starts talking how she is trying to reach Joey, he doesn’t pick it up.

Al finally wakes up. He sees Marcie lying on the floor, asleep. Her journal is open and lying next to her on the floor. Al picks it up and begins to read. She is talking how there is a nice side to Al that she doesn’t think he even sees. She also says how she believes this is a turning point for him. He replaces the journal and leaves.

Blair tells the bartender how she snuck back into Llanfair and opened the safe, stealing the diamond. As she was leaving Mitch walks into the living room and calls to see if it is Dorian. Blair stands still. “Jessica?” he asks. No answer. “Blair”, he finally says. She tells him how she feared this man and she ran out of the back door and never looked back. He explains how she must have guts, and she plays it off, as it was a joke.

Dorian goes to visit Lindsay, who is back in the hospital. Dorian tells her how well she did. She also tells Lindsay that paying Mitch back will help her recover.

Lindsay says I know what I have to do.

Jennifer goes to see Joey. Joey tells her he can’t see her anymore.

Antonio lets Jessica out. She tells him she has a clear head now. He tells her he wanted to help her. He warns her to stay away from Mitch, she agrees and leaves.

Dorian comes home and calls for Mitch, she doesn’t receive a reply. She walks to the safe and opens it, only to find it empty. Blair walks to the back of the house and Dorian meets her. “He’s gone”, she cries. Blair questions her meaning. He is gone, now what?
