The paramedics load Holly into an ambulance with Robert by her side. Later by the side of the road, the ambulance stops and the back doors open. Felicia reveals herself to be one of the drivers, and Holly sits up perfectly fine.

Holly is alive GH

They step out, and Holly thanks Felicia, who provides her with a new passport. Holly explains Felicia showed up last night at the cabin and helped her rig the stove to explode when the time was right. She also brought fireproof garments.

Holly further reveals to Felicia that she and Robert staged his drugging and for her to steal the necklace. Holly explains that Ethan’s only chance at survival is if Victor thinks she’s of no use to him. Felicia notes everyone will believe that Holly got on transport halfway across the world to a burn clinic. Holly is just sorry they had to keep Mac in the dark. Felicia believes Mac would understand.

Holy then recalls meeting and giving Miss Wu one of the diamonds from the necklace, in exchange for her giving a drug to Victor. Wu asked her what Victor did to her, and she explained he was holding her son hostage. The drug will pay him back in kind, but it won’t kill him. She’ll never get Ethan back with Victor dead. Wu agreed to help her.

Once Felicia leaves them alone, Holly tells Robert she’s sorry this must be goodbye. She notes this isn’t their moment, and he laughs, “It never is.” Before he can let her go, he asks for the necklace. She laughs that she almost forgot, and hands it over. She wonders why Victor wants it. Robert says it comes from the ice princess and that has something to do with it. She warns him to be careful and blows him a kiss as she walks away.
