On the Greek island, JJ and Chad drop their guns when Paul demands it, then he drops Sonny to the ground, where Sonny hits his head on a rock and bleeds copious amounts. The men face-off against Paul and are able to release the knife from his hand and Paul passes out. Gabi gets Sonny to his feet. Sonny dabs at Paul’s sweaty brow and begs him to come back to him, reminding him of their love. Paul flashes to everything that happened since the mosquito bite and magically comes to his senses. He passes out again. Back at the base, Eli and Lani discuss his decision to dump Gabi considering she and Chad are still in love. Lani mopes. She confides that she isn’t sure if she and JJ will make it since he’s all for taking things slowly. Eli calls that code for ‘non-committal’. Any guy in his right mind would be lucky to have her. JJ returns to base and Lani says they need to talk. She feels his distance and is concerned about them. JJ admits he’s pulling away out of fear of hurting her. They embrace.

She rants about Adrienne poisoning her son against her and stealing her man, Justin. Steve snorts. Adrienne married Justin years ago and they’re not even together. She’s married to someone else. It’s ancient news. Anjelica asks, “Haven’t you heard? Revenge is a dish best served cold.” Steve smirks and asks when Sebastian Howard will be back. Anjelica sneers that she’s Sebastian Howard. She has a soft spot for The Spectator because she was Jack’s step-mother for a time and wants to own it. Steve finds it amusing that she married a serial killer and yet this is the biggest mistake she’s making. He takes off.
