Angie says there is nothing they can do about Rebecca's tumor because it is inoperable. "No," Jesse whispers. Jesse is very worried but asks Angie what she thinks; she says Natalia is a part of him and that means she is also part of Angie. She says Natalia will be okay because they will be there for her.

At Greenlee's, Aidan manages to capture Annie's call. They hear a jet engine in the background and deduce that the kidnapper took Annie and Emma to an airport!
