Eve is concerned about John, and tells Bo that all the pain from Caitlins death is being resurrected, and its ruining his life all over again.
At his suite, John sits and drinks while mulling over evidence. Antonio knocks and demands to know how the killer got a hold of Jessica. At the cabin, Jessica frantically searches for a way out, and says that John was right and shes stupid. She vows that she wont die there, though, and manages to find a phone.
Viki calls Natalie and asks if shes seen Jessica; Natalie lies that she must have gone to Philly to follow a lead. She leaves to go to Rodis; Haver is in her house and starts going through her things.
John tells Antonio he knows how hes feeling, and that he did everything he could to keep Jessica out of the grips of the killer. Antonio says he wants to bring Haver in now, but John says Haver has high-powered attorneys behind him, and they need to make the arrest airtight. Antonio tells John that the killer has him messed up and hes not thinking straight. They need him to pull himself away from the case; hes too personally involved.
Eve says that John respects Bo and would listen if he told him to back away from the case. Meanwhile, John assures Antonio that theyre going to nail Haver for all the murders, and they need to figure out what hes going to do next.
Haver listens as Carlotta leaves a message on the machine. saying shes made the arrangements for Cris memorial and that shes worried about Jessica. At the cabin, Jessica finds that the phone line is cut, but she manages to fix it.

At Rodis, Natalie screws up a customers order. Haver shows up and says shes probably having a bad day, and offers to buy the guy another drink. She asks where Jessica is, and he says he has no idea; Natalie threatens to get the cop in the bar and Haver suggests she call John instead. She tells him shes not afraid of him, and John comes in and tells Haver to step away from the bar and put his hands in the air.
Nora asks Bo to join her for a burger so she can pick her brain about something. Jessica calls Antonio again and he asks him to find something to tell them where she is. She goes to look for a fuse box to see if theres a phone number on it, and she gets one. She tells Antonio that shes scared, and he says hes on his way.
John roughs Haver up and says it looks like hes had too much to drink. He tells him to stay away from Natalie and starts to attack Haver, until Bo calls him off. Bo tells Haver to get out and not to bother filing a complaint he didnt see anything. Nora walks by and Steven asks if they can pick things up once all this blows over she looks at him like shes crazy. Inside, Bo tells John he needs to talk to her.

Natalie tells Nora that shes not going to break down for Haver and Nora says theyre going to get him. Hell make a mistake and theyll be there. From his control room, Haver sees Jessica and recalls giving her something to make her relax in her tea. He turned on a tape machine with music and told her he was the only one she could trust, and that his voice and that music will always calm her. He put her into a hypnotic trance and made her believe that John and Antonio were dangerous and would hurt her. He puts on the music and calls Jessica; she says hes the only one she can trust.
Bo tells John he cant keep putting himself through this, and he doesnt need to take all of it on himself. However, John says its not up to him anymore, and Antonio comes and says hes found Jessica. At the cabin, Jessica tidies up as she hums the music. Haver calls John on his cell as they are en route. He tells him he needs to follow his instructions unless he wants history to repeat itself; John tells Antonio to go ahead and hell meet up with him later. Haver says he feels Johns pain, and that hes losing focus. He wants him to find him, but he needs to build the case without any holes, which isnt easy to do with all his emotional baggage. Its a chance for him to make a clean break from his past, and tells him to go back to his room.

Antonio calls Carlotta and tells her theyve found Jessica. Eve and Marcie leave and head back to the hotel, where John returns to his room. He finds his evidentiary photos of Caitlins death taped over with Natalies photo; Haver calls again and asks if he has time for him now. Maybe he can save Natalie the way he couldnt save Caitlin. John tells him to leave Natalie out of it, because shes innocent. Haver says hell provide the clues, but Johns going to have to figure out his scheme before its too late.
