He told her that marrying Jack would be a big mistake. He swept her into a passionate kiss. While Opal distracted Jack, Erica told Caleb that he should go. He begged her to take a chance on him.

Kendall asked if he'd heard anything about Griffin; he said no. Griffin got a call and found out that bail had been denied. Ricky ordered the caller to kill Griffin.
In St. Bart's, Bianca saw that she'd missed a call from Marissa and felt the effects of going through a divorce while her mom was getting married. Marissa showed up in St. Bart's and surprised Bianca.
