John's jet loses cabin pressure, Caroline comes upon Victor at the park and Kate cries on Roman's shoulder.
In the cabin, on John's jet, Shawn reassures Claire that the jet won't crash, after their bout of turbulence. Philip also comforts Chloe and when John seems to remember a lot about how turbulence happens, Marlena comments on how his memory seems to come and go. He agrees and wonders why he knew all that. "You were a pilot," she tells him, so he goes to the cabin to find out what's going on and the pilot says there is a malfunction with the aircraft. Chloe continues to worry about Brady and about the turbulence they're experiencing and Philip tells her he has faith in John's pilots with whom he has been flying with for years, and has faith that Brady is okay. Steve notices that Shawn Sr. appears tired. He asks him to rest his eyes. Kayla says it's been a weird flight and again comments on why Steve got off the plane, earlier. Steve takes her had to put her at ease. Marlena tells Hope that John went to talk to the pilot to see if they can fly around the turbulence. Hope is stressed out and asks Bo about how his back is doing. Marlena admits he does look pale. Hope excuses herself and leaves the two talking and Bo admits he has some bad news to share with Hope but isn't sure how to. Marlena offers him help but Bo says soon he'll require her help but for now he wants to keep it to himself. Hope sits with Belle, Shawn and Claire and tells Claire how brave she's being. Belle comments that Marlena and Bo are in a deep discussion and Hope excuses herself and goes to Kayla. She wants to know what Kayla and Steve are keeping from her! They don't say but Kayla tells her everything will be okay. Hope is satisfied with this for now and goes back to her seat.
In the cockpit, John tells the pilots he's sure they'll do their best. "I have my family back there," he says. He soon realizes in surprise, what he has said and pauses momentarily. He takes the pilot's seat and wants to land the plane in Reykjavik Iceland. The pilot calls to Reykjavik on the radio, "This is HT439…." Nobody answers. "Perfect," says John. "This is just perfect." John closes his eyes and starts to remember a few things about being a pilot while Belle and Shawn try to take Claire's mind off the turbulence and the cold. Shawn compliments Belle and says their daughter looks just like her - beautiful! "She has your smile and dimples," he notices, grinning. Chloe and Philip discuss how many times they have been in love and she notices he uses the past tense on his feelings for Belle.
John comes into the cabin to ask if anyone has a signal on their cell phones. He needs their cell to use as a radio. Shawn Sr. calls out Caroline's name and Kayla reminds him she's not there, while John considers that they are too far from the mainland to get a cell signal. He lies that it's no big deal and the passengers all complain about how cold it's getting.
Back in the cockpit, the pilot tells John they're losing cabin pressure. John goes into the cabin to tell everyone to put their coats on until they get it all under control. Philip gets blankets for all and snuggles close to Chloe. Bo tells Hope he's chilly but jokes that he'd like any excuse to cuddle with her. This doesn't alleviate Hope's concerns and she worries about crashing. Shawn and Belle continue to keep Claire's spirits up and get her to think of a warm day at the beach, to take her mind away.
In the cockpit, John tells the pilot to descend to a lower altitude and asks to take the pilot's right seat. They discuss what could have gone wrong as John takes control of the plane. "Let's see what I can remember," he says, nervously. Steve arrives in the cockpit to ask what's happening and overhears that they've lost their gages. John thinks they should dump the fuel but Steve argues with him not to do it. John tells Steve to give everyone the news - they'll be up there for a while and it's going to get a lot colder. Steve goes out and tells the family, they're losing cabin pressure; they've no instruments, no controls and the family becomes more anxious.
In Salem, Victor looks at a tulip in the park, when Caroline comes across him. They make small talk and discuss Bo and how well Caroline and Shawn brought him up. Victor doesn't take credit for this but Caroline reminds him he's blood and nothing can take that away. She tells him about how Shawn is on his way home and how he sounded a little off in their last phone conversation. Victor gives her the tulip and admits she brings out the good side of him. Chelsea runs across the two and is happy to see them together. She jumps right in and asks how they ended up having her father! They're both taken off guard but Chelsea tells them, "Isn't it better that I hear it from you?" Victor laughs and Caroline comments that Chelsea sure has Kiriakis blood in her veins! Caroline looks uneasy and says it wasn't something they were proud of, though Victor says it produced Bo, and they're both proud of him! Caroline tells Chelsea that she and Victor were in love, years ago but their love affair ended when Victor was sent back to Greece to learn the shipping business. Since she never thought they'd see each other again, she married Shawn and they had three kids. Victor chips in that after he learned the shipping business, he came back to Salem. Caroline remembers that Shawn was very busy with the business at the time and she felt very unhappy and lonely. It was then that she saw the handsome Victor again. "We had a moment's indiscretion." Caroline says and she sent Victor away. She didn’t want Shawn to find out. Victor went back to Greece and Caroline found out she was pregnant. She kept it a secret until Bo was an adult and when he became a police officer, he was assigned to a case that involved Victor. In fact, Bo almost shot Victor! During the tense moments while Bo pointed his gun at Victor, Caroline says she shouted out, "Bo, he's your father!" We see a flashback and Chelsea asks, "Was he angry?" Caroline says he was shocked and furious with Caroline, as was Grandpa Shawn. Chelsea asks why Grandpa Shawn didn't leave her and she says it's because he loved her. "And he's an honorable man," Victor adds.
Kate sits alone, crying on a park bench until she is met by Roman, who gives her a hanky. She is upset about Lucas admitting to his guilt but Roman calls Lucas is a good man and points out that he's taking responsibility for his actions. He admires that but Kate doesn't like that he has to say goodbye to his family. She begs Roman to help but his hands are tied. Kate is upset that EJ's still in the picture but Roman reminds her that Lucas shot EJ! He's not taking sides but he told Lucas the consequences of his actions and there is nothing he can do about it now. He says he knows what it's like to have people ripped out of his life and Kate sighs and rolls her eyes and says, "Marlena?" Roman says, "Not just Marlena…" He reassures a ranting Kate that Lucas will be fine in prison. He knows the warden and will make sure Lucas is safe. Kate apologizes for her rant and Roman says he'll always care about her and he likes Lucas but doesn't get why he had to shoot EJ. Kate blames herself partially but Roman says she does what she does out of love. Kate apologizes for taking out her frustrations on him and Roman smiles. "Don’t you worry about it."
