Jonathan goes in to kill the bug and Alan sneaks into the room and grabs Sarah and holds her. Lizzie returns with Jonathan close behind and demands that Alan give her Sarah right now.

Alan does the same to Jonathan and then Jonathan warns Alan that if he comes anywhere near Sarah he will snap his neck.

(Company) Josh tells Rick he can’t baptize the baby because he feels since he knows whom the baby’s real father is he can’t perform the ceremony. Cassie arrives and they reach a compromise that he should let Reverend Rutledge do the ceremony since he (Josh) is the baby’s godfather. (Beacon) Jonathan is in the hallway when he gets a text from Lizzie telling him to pack Sarah’ things because Alan came back so its best they all go to the Bauer cabin to hide from him until they figure out their next step.

(Bauer Cabin) Jonathan wonders if Alan intends to kill him with his own Gun and Alan tells Jonathan that would be too easy. Alan tells Jonathan he intends to raise Sarah right but first he intends to change her name to a name that is more suitable for a Spaulding. Jonathan lunges for Alan but Alan’s hired goons hold him back so he won’t hurt Alan. Alan tells Jonathan that if he calls Reva to tell her that he is taking Sarah and running away again and she believes the story he will allow him to say good-bye to Sarah. Jonathan calls Reva and tells her that Alan bribed his way into his room to see Sarah and told him that he could get to her at any time so since he is scared he is taking Sarah and going on the run. Reva tries to persuade Jonathan to stay and then he tells Reva that he loves him and he is so happy that she is his mom. Jonathan hangs up the phone and cries a little and quickly wipes away the tears as the nanny brings Sarah to him so he can say good-bye to her. Jonathan tells Sarah he loves her and that at first he was scared to be a father but he learned how to be a good father and a better person because of her.

(Bauer cabin) Lizzie takes a chance and goes to see if Jonathan is there and when she looks out the window she sees Alan’s men putting Jonathan in the trunk of a car. Lizzie rushes out and tells the men that she thinks her grandfather is having a heart attack. Lizzie unties Jonathan and gets him out of the trunk and when the men come back out Jonathan hits them both with a crowbar. Jonathan explains that Alan set him up and took Sarah and now he wants to kill him. Lizzie decides to go to the church and find Beth since she is the only person who can talk sense into Alan.

(Church) Lizzie arrives and tells Reva all the details about what happened between Jonathan and Alan.
