At the airport hangar, Victor pulls Chloe inside where she implores the Mustache to call for a plane to get her out of there – he’ll never have to see her face again. Vic wants no part of it and starts to exit, but Chloe hollers at him. She threatens to tell everyone about their little collaboration. Outside, Nick takes a tearful call from Chelsea, who tells him he was right about Chloe, who took off and could be anywhere. Nick keeps watch on the hangar as Chelsea describes how she found out the truth and confronted Chloe. Nick wonders if she mentioned having an accomplice. Chelsea’s phone is dying and she wants to meet at his place. Nick pretends she’s breaking up and disconnects. In the hangar, Chloe implores Victor to make the call, but he wants an explanation. Nick sneaks in and strains to listen as Chloe lies that Chelsea found the evidence she framed Adam – it implicates him too. Vic intones, “What evidence?” Chloe says Chelsea found the diary and rants about what his family will think of him framing Adam. Victor arranges for the jet and warns Chloe not to return. Nick confronts his father, but Chloe has already taken off. Nick can’t believe Victor let her get away, but quickly deduces that Chloe was the one who helped him frame Adam. Nick rants about him bringing a lunatic to town to frame Adam, and announces that he has now let his son’s killer escape. “Chloe blew up that cabin. She murdered Adam!”

At Sharon’s place, she assures Chelsea that Nick’s not upset with her. Chelsea can’t believe she was so gullible and looks forward to testifying against Chloe. She leaves, saying she’ll get justice for Adam…tonight.
