    After Shawn is shot by Duck on Tinda Lau, Belle cries out in alarm to Gabby to get a doctor. Philip is stunned by the turn of events and grabs the gun from Duck before he can get another shot out. Gabby yells at Duck, asking what’s wrong with him and then quickly hands Claire to Philip, before running off to get a doctor. Shawn watches as Claire is given to Philip and whispers in pain to Belle, "Get Claire." Duck eggs Philip on. "Now's your chance. Take the kid and run," he encourages. Phil doesn’t make a move. Gabby comes back and before Philip can take Claire and leave, Belle tells him he can leave over her dead body! Shawn and Belle are beside themselves with worry that Philip would leave Shawn bleeding to death while he steals Claire. Belle begs and asks for a compromise but Philip refuses to let the baby go - not now, not ever, he informs her without a trace of regret in his voice. Meanwhile, Duck asks Gabby if this is the respect he gets after all he has done for her? Philip and Shawn spar over who's the worse father and Duck interjects with the story about their first arrival on Tinda Lau, and how Claire was very ill with blood poisoning. As he tries to give ammunition to fuel Philip’s anger, Gabby tells her father to stay out of it! Philip takes Claire and leaves while Shawn, Belle and Gabby watch in shock. Shawn and Gabby urge Belle to go after them and reluctant to leave Shawn, Belle tears off after their daughter and Philip. Once she’s out of earshot, Duck asks Shawn, "You really think she's a match for a marine?" Shawn drops from the pain and falls unconscious. The doctor comes by, stitches Shawn up and provides him with antibiotics. Shawn figures that Philip probably has a boat somewhere. Sherriff Jim comes by to take Duck to jail. He takes along with him the gun and Shawn tells Jim that Philip paid him to shoot him, but he's not pressing charges. After they're gone, Gabby explains to Shawn that Duck did three tours of Nam and all of his friends died. "It eats away at him," she says. Shawn explains to Gabby that Philip was once a good man, before the war as well. Gabby offers to help Shawn but since he is too weak, he agrees to let Gabby drive while he rides shotgun. Shawn grabs a gun from under the bar but an exasperated Gabby grabs it from his hands and says, "No more guns!" They leave the gun on the counter and make a dash for it.

    Tinda Lau Shootout!

    Friday, May 04 2007

    Shawn, Claire and Belle all make a run for it while Philip lies passed out on the chair outside their room. Shawn tells Belle they're going to hitch a ride on a fishing boat until they get to Australia. They make it downstairs and suddenly, Duck comes wandering out from behind the bar. He tells them that the 'Duck is on duty', and says he's there to make sure nobody is getting an unfair advantage. Shawn tells Duck to wake up, and says that they're not playing war games but Duck stands his ground. Shawn asks,
    "What are you going to do about it? Knock us over with your beer breath?" Duck suddenly pulls out a gun and tells Shawn, "If you have any brains left, take your lady upstairs before my finger slips." Shawn and Belle are visibly shaken and Shawn tells the man that he should have held out for more money. Duck denies taking money from Philip but Shawn knows better. Shawn and Belle turn to leave quietly but Duck shoots at the sky and Shawn and Belle go down. Gabby comes running into the room when she hears the shot and begs her dad to let them go.

    Philip finally comes to and hobbles down the stairs to thank Duck for helping him. Shawn and Belle beg him to tell Duck to put the gun down and let them go. Philip tells them, "Fine go, and just leave Clare on your way out." He then grasps at straws and because he didn't think things would go this far, he asks them to give him joint custody. Shawn doesn't believe anything that comes out of Philip's mouth and he refuses his uncle. He reminds Phil of what he has done in the past and that they were once friends but he won't trust him again. Shawn turns to Belle and forces her to leave while he waits behind. Gabby helps get them to the docks while Shawn tells Philip that they're gone and it's over. Philip is silent as Shawn turns to go. A shot fires out and Shawn goes down! Duck pulls back the gun and Philip spins around to ask him what he's doing! Philip grabs Duck in order to stop him from shooting again. Belle hears the shot and runs to Shawn, crying.

    Slipped A Mickey!

    Thursday, May 03 2007

    Down at the bar, Philip and Duck bond over beer and old war stories while Shawn tends bar. Duck asks Shawn why he talked trash about Philip when he's a great guy. Philip interjects and admits that Shawn and he used to be really close until Claire's paternity came between them. Duck goes off to the restroom and Phil goes to Shawn to ask him to hand over Claire. Shawn refuses and warns him that once he's asleep, they'll leave the island. Philip goes back to his table as Shawn reaches into his pocket and finds a prescription bottle. "Sweet dreams," he says.

    Duck and Philip laugh and swap stories and Gabby comes down to talk to Shawn. She asks about Philip's kingly attitude and Shawn declares that Philip's family is filthy rich and that they used to be very close. He says, "We're family. Philip is my uncle, but now…" He trails off and tells her he has Duck's sleeping pills and asks her to slip them in his drink. He tells her since Philip is a soldier, he will stay awake until his mission is over. She agrees to help but tells him, "You and Belle are good at asking for handouts, aren't you?!"

    Downstairs, Gabby tells the men that it's last call, so Duck shuffles off to bed. Gabby tries to lure Philip into sticking around and having one last beer with her. Although he doesn't trust her, he agrees to it. She explains that she made a mistake about him. She apologizes for it as he drinks his drug laced beer. She calls him a war hero and tells him that Duck rescued her from a Vietnamese orphanage. She thinks the way Duck loves her is the way he loves Claire. He tells her, "That's some turn around but I accept your apology." He snidely asks her if she's keeping him there in order to allow Belle to ransack his room, but Shawn comes down at the same time and asks him what his connection is to EJ Wells. Philip laughs and realizes he was right. "I hope you had a good time reading my PDA?" he asks Shawn. Philip admits he doesn't know what EJ wants with them but thinks it must be serious. He offers to charter a private boat to get them back to civilization if in return they give him Claire. Shawn refuses and Philip goes upstairs. Shawn thanks Gabby and tells her that the plan is to leave, as soon as Philip is asleep.

    Another Piece Of The Puzzle

    Monday, April 30 2007

    Shawn counts all of his cash at the bar on Tinda Lau, while Duck mocks him. Duck doesn't think that he has enough money to rent a kayak, let alone a boat. Shawn tells him that he needs to leave as soon as possible because Philip is on his way there!

    Once downstairs, Belle tells Shawn they have to leave, and before he can ask why, a furious Philip trudges down the stairs after her. Gabby shows up and threatens to call Sheriff Jim, but Philip has beaten her to it. Once the sheriff arrives, Philip pulls out the custody agreement to show to the sheriff. Unfortunately for Philip, the island doesn't have any extradition treaty with the USA and there is nothing he can do! Belle and Shawn are relieved with the news but Philip fumes. He pushes past Shawn and rents a room out. "I'm still not leaving here without Claire," he says, disgusted. Philip offers triple the rate and because Duck needs the money and doesn't know both sides to the story, he allows Phil to stay there.

    Belle pulls Philip aside and asks what he's up to. He tells her that he wants to watch over them to ensure that they don't try to escape. He warns her that the second she closes her eyes, he'll take Claire from them. Belle slaps him and tells him that she hates him. "You'll never take my daughter as long as there is a breath left in my body!" she promises. "I can't believe I loved you." She continues, sadly. Philip replies, "You never did love me," and turns to Duck to give him a cash deposit to secure his room. The two men bond over being fellow vets and agree to take breakfast together in order to swap war stories!
    Everyone heads up to bed and Philip warns Belle and Shawn not to try to sneak out because he'll be there watching. He tries to say hello to Claire but Belle holds her firmly.
