In bed (fully clothed), Tad tried to console Cara. After updating Amanda on Griffin's escape, Jake left a message for Cara. Jake reached Tad to summon Cara back to the hospital.

Bianca urged Jack not to give up on Erica. Krystal and Jack met up for a meal and Jack was distracted by a woman across the room reading Erica's autobiography. Krystal and Jack had to part ways due to a staffing crisis at Krystal's. Jack went home and thought about Erica. Krystal soon arrived. Jack vented about Erica, then decided he wasn't going to let La Kane get him down.
Erica bickered with the disembodied voice of her captor. The captor beseeched Erica to eat. She said she would, provided it was on fine china and that she got to see her kidnapper's face. When the captor served her a meal from Krystal's, Erica jumped to the conclusion that Krystal was her captor. Erica then tried to escape again. She successfully picked the lock, and was stunned by what she saw when she opened the door.

A bunch of cartons were delivered. Caleb showed up and he deflected Asher's questions about what had happened in St. Bart's. Caleb said he was responsible for the delivery.
Marissa, JR and Bianca arrived at ConFusion and met up with Louise, the woman JR had set Bianca up with. When JR heard that Caleb was at the mansion, he bolted. At the house, Asher barked at JR to cut Caleb some slack. Bianca felt awkward trying to get acquainted with Louise. When Marissa went to talk to a returning JR, Louise speculated to Bianca that Binks is interested in Marissa. Bianca was shaken.
Asher went to Krystal's, where he watched Colby's new blog about Erica's bravery in being a runaway bride. Caleb came and thanked Asher for his support. He told Asher that it was time for him to let go of Erica.

Kendall made an excuse to leave and went to the safe house, where she berated Griffin for nearly getting caught. Griff barked at Kendall for kissing Ricky. Kendall defended herself, telling Griffin she knew what she was doing.
Asher told Caleb he was working on tracking down Erica. Over Caleb's protests, Asher hacked into Erica's e-mail. Caleb berated Asher, then followed him to the park to apologize to his son. Asher agreed to work for Caleb here and there.
Jack refused to let Krystal quit. Krystal came to Jack's on-the-job rescue. Bianca went to see Jack with an idea about how to reach out to Erica: a Web video. Bianca told Jack that she had gotten an e-mail from Erica. Jack reluctantly agreed to record the video.
