V. Ardanowski orders Jax to bring the plane down or she'll be forced to use her police weapon. He realizes she's only bluffing but lands the plane in a remote spot; informing her this is where she'll be staying while he takes off. Unfortunately mother nature does not agree with him and it looks like the two might be stranded.

Jason attempts to leave the hospital but is unsuccessful. His wounds reopen causing him to bleed; this freaks out Emily. Robin comes in and helps along with Amy. Jason tells Robin he needs to help Sonny. He's worried because there's no answer on the cell phone.

Bobbie tries to warn Katherine about the type of man Stefan is but she does not believe one word Bobbie is saying. Bobbie warns her not to cross Stefan.

As they speak Stefan shows up at Katherine's to find Nikolas there. He orders him back to the hospital to be checked out and then back to the house. Nikolas tells him he can no longer tell him what to do and that he wants his own privacy. Stefan tries to reassure him of his love and commitment to him but all Nikolas wants is to be away from Stefan. He also informs his uncle that he stayed at Katherine's upon her invitation. This takes Stefan by surprise and once again he yells at Nikolas. Katherine walks into the middle of all this and finds out exactly the type of man he is. Nikolas leaves and Stefan begins to get angry with Katherine. She tries to explain but he claims he's not sure if he can believe anything she says. Katherine orders him to leave after he tells her what she should have done.

Sarah and Nikolas meet up again at the old chapel and she tells him Alexis was looking for him. He tells her that he has quit his family and why; although he doesn't get into detail.

Ned & Alexis have an evening out together and there is definitely an attraction between the two.

Robin & Bobbie have a heart to heart conversation. Robin confides to Bobbie that she is afraid she's hurting Jason by not protecting him. She admits she doesn't like Jason working for Sonny and questions herself on her feelings. Bobbie offers whatever advice she could; she uses herself as an example. She also tells Robin to ask Jason questions and really listen to the answers. This might help her in whatever decisions she might want to make.
