At the cabin, Margaret warns Todd that if he doesn't sleep with her to make a baby, she'll hurt Blair. He points out that she won't have time to have sex with him by the time she drives into down and comes back. She tries to persuade him to do it with her now as she keeps threatening Blair. He keeps trying to argue with her and says she might as well kill him now because he won't want to live without Blair. Margaret decides to call his bluff, so she puts on the TV as she leaves to find Blair. Todd yells after her, then he talks to himself about how he can stop Margaret.
At La Boulée, Blair wants to find Todd still, so she has Dorian baby-sit Jack and Starr. Dorian worries that Blair is getting involved with someone so unstable. Dorian has a short conversation with David on the phone; he is at work. Duke and Adriana come in and overhear that Dorian is plotting to get revenge on Viki. Adriana tells them that she plans to tell Kevin that he was right about Ace and that Kelly was wrong; he should have done everything he could to keep Ace. Duke and Dorian get upset about what she said. Adriana just plans to tell Kevin that she agrees with him so she can gain his confidence. Dorian hugs her and thinks her idea is brilliant. Duke is not okay with the idea. Starr and Jack tell Dorian that they are bored, but then a news crew shows up at the door to ask about the return of Ace and the Chandlers' petition to get him back. Dorian tells them Kelly is not here but insists on talking to them. Starr promises Jack that she will find Todd if their mom doesn't; they share a hug, then eat popcorn and talk about it some more. Dorian tells the press on camera that Kelly was a victim of Paul's actions. Adriana admires how Dorian is placing her own spin on what happened. Duke takes her aside and tries to talk her out of spying on his dad. Starr finds out about the reporters, so she goes out to talk to them once Dorian's done with them. The reporter interviews Starr about Todd's disappearance. Todd sees her on the TV. Starr tells Todd that she misses and loves him. She says not to worry about them because they're okay. Margaret lurks nearby in the bushes. Jack also talks to Todd on camera. He has the magic frog that Starr gave him so that he can send messages to his dad. Todd works hard to escape, buoyed on by seeing his children as the reporters ask the kids what they miss most about their dad. Todd accidentally starts a fire nearby with the space heater.
Dorian thinks that Adriana should pretend to break up with Duke in order to gain more of Kevin's trust. They don't agree to that and Duke points out that Kevin won't trust anyone right now. Dorian has another plan to get Kevin to trust Adriana. Duke is frustrated by Dorian's underhanded tactics, but Adriana defends her mom. He asks her to promise him that she will always be straight with him. They make up after that.

Blair frets, wondering where Margaret went with Todd. Lou feels bad for her and keeps offering his help. Blair borrows his yellow pages to see if she can find the doctor that Todd went to.
