At the farm house, Holden tells Molly he is just bleeding because he was changing his tire. That's not very convincing to her. He also claims that he let Damian leave the country because he didn't want the family to suffer. Molly asks for the truth. Holden recalls pummeling Damian and walks out to call Lily. He explains that there is still no sign of Meg and asks her to come over and help him tell the kids the latest. When he goes back inside, he tells Molly she should leave. She keeps quizzing him. He continues insisting he didn't do anything to Damian and then throws her deception in her face. She backs down and asks him to take off his shirt so she can tend to his wound. It's a big gash on his chest. She assumes he was in a fight. He runs upstairs as Lily comes in. She spots blood on the floor. Molly claims it's tomato sauce but Lily's not that stupid. Holden comes back in after changing his shirt. Molly leaves them alone. They discuss what to do with the kids and he suggests that they go and live with her. He assures her Damian will never come back again. The kids come in and they explain that Damian did some bad things and now he's gone. As the kids pack, Lily thanks Holden for forgiving her. He just wants everything to get back to normal.
Molly goes down to the waterfront. She finds an oar spattered with blood and hears someone coughing. A little boy is hiding. He tells her that some men scared him. She shows him a picture of Holden. The boy recognizes him and runs away.

He tries to pick it up and it splits, covering him with flour. As she dusts him off, Lucinda walks in. "I won't even ask what's going on here," she says. After Teri makes herself scarce, Lucinda teases Dusty about his 'girlfriend'. He insists that she's just a kid. Lucinda keeps mocking him lewdly while Teri listens. Lucinda asks for an investigator's number and then leaves. Teri returns and confronts him for calling her a 'kid' and points out that she is a woman. He tells her that he respects her and she is his employee. She confronts him about Janet and accuses him of being in love with her. He says she's beautiful and she'll find someone who deserves her.
