Driving in the night, Blair tells Todd they are sixty miles from Paris, Texas! Although Todd thinks John is sending them on a wild goose chase, Blair has more confidence in John. Suddenly, Todd is happy they don’t have to deal with John and says, “Now we don’t have to play by his rules. If I find Marcie, I’m going to chain her to the radiator then take the kid!” Todd briefly calls to check on Starr and tells his daughter not to give up hope - that Marty and Cole are probably together. “If they’re not home when your mom and me get back,” Todd says. “I’ll personally hunt your boyfriend down.” After Todd hangs up, he blames Marcie for not only taking away his baby –but for taking him away from Starr!

However, he’s taking it ‘one day at a time.’ Knowing how Charlie feels, Viki says, “I’d be a fool to turn down another date with you.” Happy, but feeling as though he has to explain himself more, Charlie compares ‘Charlie with a last name’ to be a bad guy, but says that ‘Charlie with a B.’ is a pretty decent man. “If that guy comes back,” Charlie says. “I want you to walk away because you don’t deserve him. But if you really want to know my last name, I’ll tell you.” Viki then introduces herself as Viki D. and shakes Charlie’s hand.

Shocked, Nigel is again confronted by Dorian and informs her that Clint and Nora are off on a ride – giving Alex a chance to take a jab at her rival!

In the sables, as Clint and Nora prepare to saddle up, they joke and laugh about memories of the past. Seeing Nora is still nervous about riding a horse, Clint helps her up on a saddle, gives her some pointers then says, “Now get down and do it again!” As Nora goes to get down, she falls into Clint's waiting arms! Once Nora settles her footing, she decides not to go for that ride and shares a drink with Clint over talk of Lindsay and Bo – and how they started out as friends… When Clint gets serious, Nora wonders if Clint is talking about Bo and Lindsay's relationship at all! Suddenly, Dorian arrives in the doorway of the stables – just as Clint takes Nora in a kiss!
Sitting outside by a fire, Nash and Jessica are joined by Jared and Sarah who bring them some blankets. However, when Natalie and Chuck show up, Jared appears anything but pleased! As everyone sits down, Natalie talks about all the places Chuck has shown her on the ranch, throwing their affair in Jared’s face! When Jared can’t take it anymore, he snaps, “So basically you’ve been nasty all over this ranch!” After a bit of bickering, it is clear the only person who has a problem with Natalie sleeping with Chuck is Jared! Having had enough, Sarah tells Jared to lose her number then leaves – and so does everyone else, giving Jared and Natalie the chance to battle it out once and for all!
Once alone, Jared and Natalie lay it all on the table to which Jared claims, “All I want is my life back before Tess! I wanted for us to climb to the top together!” When Natalie realizes Jared and her have a lot of life experiences in common, she finally admits, “I didn’t sleep with Chuck.” After Natalie admits to having feelings for Jared, Jared takes Natalie in a passionate kiss!

Reluctantly, Lee admits that he’s been trying to bag these people for years to which John asks, “How bad do you want it? Bad enough to leave my sister-in-law alone, bad enough to help Marty and Cole?” Once John promises to give Lee the lead he has on Marty, Lee agrees to join forces with John! Just as Lee says he’ll make arrangements for them to fly to Ireland tonight, Michael appears and asks, “You’re giving up on Marcie?”
After Lee leaves the brothers alone, Michael begs John not to abandon his wife! Although Michael fears what Todd will do to Marcie, John assures Michael Todd won’t hurt her because he wants Tommy then insists he did all he could by getting Lee Ramsey off Marcie’s trail. Suddenly, Lee reappears and the two men leave for Ireland!
As Marty is praying for someone to help her, suddenly, the door to the darkened room is opened and a man throws Cole in!
