Meantime, Paul, who has Eliza, stows away in Josie’s car. Josie, who decided to leave Oakdale is stunned to find him in the backseat with the baby. Paul, who has been avoiding Barbara’s calls, eventually agrees with Josie to let her know that he’s fine. He warns her to keep her mouth closed about speaking to him. Unfortunately back in Oakdale, Dusty is unable to calm Meg’s worried heart. He then discovers the letter Josie left for him and thinks she might know where Paul and Eliza are. He calls her cell phone and leaves a message; one that Josie doesn’t get, thanks to Paul. Josie soon regrets not doing the right thing in terms of getting Eliza back to Meg, but Paul pushes her into letting him have Eliza for at least a week. Holden, who learns of Eliza’s disappearance, is furious that Meg is still relying on Dusty, who in turn feels responsible. Lily stuns Holden when she sides with Dusty and defends his actions. Holden shows up at Dusty’s place to get Meg to return back to the farm. Lily, in the meantime, assures Dusty that he isn’t to blame for what has happened but he still believes he should keep his distance. Dusty sees Meg and tells her that Josie called him, letting him know that Paul is indeed with her with Eliza. Meg soon begins to believe that there is hope for getting her back after all.
