As Janet excitedly shows Erica around Oak Haven, they run into Marian and Annie. Annie and Erica snipe at each other, as Janet tries to make peace. Janet asks about Amanda and Trevor, but Erica tells them she's been in captivity so she doesn’t know what's going on. After Erica separates herself from the group, Marian talks with her privately. Erica says she isn't scared about being there, she just wants Jack to come to his senses about her. A staff member rounds up the gals to take them for their exercise, but tells Erica she needs to stay put. Once alone, Jack walks in much to Erica's relief. She wonders if he believes her. He wants to, more than anything, but her story is pretty wild. She promises him she is telling the truth. He thinks there has to be proof out there. She fills him in on everything she knows and Jack realizes she is telling the truth. She thanks him for not giving up on her. They embrace as Dixie walks by and sees them.
