Vienna, Henry and Pam arrive at the construction area. They knock over a pipe and hear someone calling for help! Henry begins to look around, worried, but Pam assures them it was probably a bird. She convinces them not to look around and leads them away, not realizing that Silas, Ava and JJ are in another room! Ava tells Silas to gag JJ but he doesn't. JJ asks about Les and both of the kidnappers defend everything the man did. JJ doesn't believe them and keeps telling them all of Jack's good points. "There's no key. He lied," JJ says. Silas almost hits JJ with his flashlight but Ava stops him. Whispering, she asks Silas if JJ could be right - and Les might be lying. JJ listens. Ava tells Silas if there isn't a key they have to ask for a ransom for JJ. Silas starts to make a call but Ava stops him. She has another idea.
Jack and Carly go to the farm and begin looking around, certain that JJ must have been abducted from the farm. Carly remembers Luke was there.

Carly is waiting at the counter where Julia's music box is. Jack tells her about his conversation with JJ and remembers the kidnapper mentioning the box, too.

Angry, Carly tells Katie she can't help them. Jack sends her to call Margo. Upset, Katie asks Jack if JJ has really been upset. He tells her not to worry about it and draws Katie into a hug. Carly returns as Katie tells Jack she loves his kids!
Vienna and Henry return to their hotel room. She comes on to him but he pulls away, still worried about the general state of the building and all of the problems.
