John calls Natalie from Tahiti to fill her in on Eli's death. Natalie asks about Blair. John looks at Blair and says, "She's not okay." He needs to stay there to identify the body and asks Natalie to reschedule her sonogram. He wants to be there for it. Natalie agrees then John hangs up and goes to Blair. She wonders how she could've been so blind. John holds her close. Word comes that Eli's body has been recovered. "Is he dead?" Blair asks. John wants to wait to see for himself. While they wait John admits he knows Eli pushed Marty down the stairs. The body bag is wheeled in and Blair insists on seeing Eli. When it's unzipped to reveal a charred face Blair turns into John's arms. The bullet retrieved from the body matches the bullet from the gun. John takes the evidence then watches Blair as she stares at a melted wedding photo, which was found on the deceased. "He can't hurt you anymore," John says. Blair thought she'd married someone who was so different from Todd and says, "He was worse than Todd could ever be." Blair can't believe she fell in love with the man who killed John's baby. When it's time to leave Blair takes her wedding ring off and throws the photo in the garbage.
