Later, after coming to, Natalie has no idea where she is or what has happened to her. When Tina threatens to confess to Bo, Tess warns her that doing so would place Sarah’s life in danger. Natalie finally realizes that Tess is in control. Tess informs a frightened Natalie that she has tried unsuccessfully to kill her and Jared twice already. Afterward, Tess coldly reveals her plan to ruin her sister’s happiness. A horrified Natalie listens as Tess states that, while she isn’t going to kill either of them, she plans on keeping them apart for the remainder of their lives. While gazing at a picture of Viki, Tina is overwrought with grief. She nearly confesses to Clint before Tess is able to stop her. Tess toys with Tina as Sarah informs them that Carlo Hesser has escaped from his Mendorran prison. Sarah informs Bo and her friends that Cristian has disappeared.

Meanwhile, John informs Blair that, while work has always been his top priority, he can have his cake and eat it too. Marty realizes that John is still investigating Todd’s mystery woman.
