Although Roxy and Michael plead with John to let Miles go, John slams Miles against the wall one more time, throws him to the couch then says, “All right, where are they?" After Miles claims he had nothing to do with Marty and Cole’s disappearance, John privately tells Michael about Marcie – who is furious at John for bailing on Marcie! Back to Miles, John explains when and where they disappeared from - to which Miles again swears, “I don’t know where there are!”
Just then, Lee shows up at the hotel and sends a cop upstairs to look for Marcie in Michael’s room. Although Michael insists Marcie isn’t there, Lee focuses on John, thinking he returned to Llanview on a tip about Marcie! When Michael rushes past them up the stairs, Lee and John follow! However, once upstairs, Lee and his men come up empty-handed. Showing Lee the tracking device John found on his car, Lee then orders John ‘patted’ down and sends Michael away with the other cop.
Alone, after John refuses to give Lee answers as to why he’s back in Llanview, and says, “Maybe I just wanted some alone time with you,” Lee punches John in the stomach then replies, “You are under arrest for aiding and abetting a fugitive and for generally ticking me off.” Finally, John admits he came home because Cole and Marty Thornhart have gone missing. “Thornhart… As in Patrick Thornhart?” Lee asks. As Lee takes off John cuffs, they exchange what they know about Patrick’s case and the guy who killed him – the same one John suspects has Marty and Cole!

Later, after Gigi vents about her money problems, she asks Viki about her date with Charlie.
Suddenly, Charlie arrives at the diner asking if Viki had time for a cup of coffee – and Gigi quickly volunteers to cover for Viki! Once alone, Charlie admits he came by to find out when he could see her again. After Charlie expresses how nice it was to talk to someone about his son, Viki agrees it was nice to talk about her double-life but admits, “A bit of my real-life showed up here in Texas today, and it made me realize I’m so not ready to go back home.” Later, after a brief talk with Gigi, Viki goes back to Charlie and says, “I don’t know your last name? I couldn't possibly go out with someone if I don’t know something so basic as your last name.” However, Charlie replies, “I consider you a friend, and all my friends just call me Charlie B.”
In Texas, after everyone makes a final toast to Asa, Jessica and Nash wonder what’s going on with Natalie and Chuck – who are MIA.

Once Clint breaks up the fight, Nash claims, “I’ll keep my distance from him if he keeps his distance from us!” Though Clint has no clue what’s going on between them, he warns, “Deal with it!”
Later, sitting on a bench, Jared is still steamed about Nash and tells Renee how he feels like an outsider being there. However, although Renee has been a Buchanan a few times over, she confides to Jared that unless you are ‘really’ a Buchanan, you never will be one.
