Scott saw that Amanda was dreaming. When she awoke, he asked her to tell him
her dream. Amanda tried to make up a wonderful dream involving the two of
them, but Scott knew she was lying, and yelled at her. Scott told Amanda that
he heard there were two American's on the island. He figured one of them was
Cameron. Scott then told Amanda that Carl had the house built for Rachel and
the twins. Scott informed Amanda that they too could have had a love like
Carl and Rachel.
While yelling at Amanda, Scott informed Amanda to go to the bank, pose as
Rachel, and get the Cory money. Amanda pleaded for Scott to let her call her
daughter, Allie. After a furious Scott left the room, Amanda vowed to do
whatever it takes. When Scott returned, Amanda tried to seduce him, but it
didn't work. Scott just got angry and told Amanda she means nothing to him.
He just wants the money. Scott eventually started to give in to Amanda.
Gary and Cameron hit a few close calls in their attempt to save Amanda. They
spotted a tunnel that would lead them inside the house. Gary was worried
about Cameron's childhood claustrophobia resurfacing. Gary stalled a guard
while Cameron made a run for the tunnel. In the tunnel, Cameron became
nervous and distressed. It was obvious his childhood was coming back to haunt
Cameron looked on from the ceiling tunnel. A noise from the ceiling took
Scott's attention away from Amanda. He sensed that someone was trying to get
into the room. Just as Scott was about to catch Cameron in the tunnel, Amanda
dropped her dress to the floor. Needless to say, Amanda had Scott's
attention back. Then Isabel interrupted Scott and Amanda stating that "the
Americans" are back. Scott left to investigate threatening that Amanda will
be sorry if one of the Americans was Cameron.
After Scott left, Amanda ran over to the tunnel and filled Cameron in on what
has been happening, including Allie's kidnapping. Cameron told Amanda that
Gary was with him. Amanda and Cameron tried to work on a plan together while
Scott was away. After Cameron left, Scott returned, handed Amanda a wig and a
dress, and demanded her to get dressed so that they could go to the bank.
Amanda asked Scott if he wanted to finish what they started. Scott said he
wants the money more, and if she was the best that he has ever had, then maybe
he won't kill her.
Gary was captured by Island security. Gary tried to warn security about
Amanda. When security said they knew about Amanda, he tried to bribe the
officers, but it didn't work. Cameron looked on.
Paulina argued with Joe about a plan for saving Amanda, Cameron, and Gary.
Joe insisted he knew what he was doing. Just as Joe convinced Paulina to let
him go and bring back Amanda, Rachel stood at the bottom of the stairs with
her suitcases demanding "I am going to Boca Linda, and I am not coming back
without my daughter." Joe and Paulina tried to convince Rachel not to go.
Paulina pleaded with Rachel that she didn't want to lose her too. Rachel said
"If you were in Amanda's shoes, wouldn't you want me to come for you too."
Just then the phone rang, Joe got a call stating that Allie was picked up by a
stranger at boarding school in Switzerland. Rachel yelled at the boarding
school demanding an explanation as to why they let her go off with a stranger.
This was enough to convince Rachel that staying behind was the right thing to
Rachel and Paulina realized that Scott's anger was more personal than business
related. Rachel and Paulina went through a box of personal belongings that
might lead them to Scott's identity. In the box was Amanda's baby shoes.
Also in the box was Carl's family album. Rachel and Paulina noticed a
pictures of Carl and Carl's mother, Eleanor. In one picture was Carl with a
pregnant Eleanor. A puzzled Rachel wondered what happened to the baby. Just
then, Rachel and Paulina looked at each other and realized that Scott could be
When Joe came home, Rachel and Paulina immediately informed Joe of their
suspicion. This would explain why Scott had the family crest in his pocket,
why he stole the family tree, and why he showed up right after Carl died.
They now have a motive for Scott shooting Carl. Rachel got a delivery of a
tape recorder of Allie's voice telling them to obey the rules and that she is
okay, and there was also a man's voice telling them not to go after Amanda.
Josie confided to Toni that she should have gone with Gary. Chris brought
Josie and Toni a file on Cameron and Gary and encouraged them to read it.
