She instructed the worker to call the police. Massimo arrived at the resort to discover that Ridge had already been kidnapped. Brooke assumed that Massimo kidnapped Ridge. She would not answer Massimo's questions. Brooke would not believe that Massimo had nothing to do with Ridge's kidnapping.

In the hotel room, Massimo told Nick and Brooke that he had been set up. He explained that he tried to hold the gold until he saw Ridge. Instead, the kidnappers took out guns and threatened to kill him and Ridge if he did not hand over the gold. The bellman delivered a second ransom note to Massimo. Nick noticed that the bird seemed upset with the bellman who delivered the ransom note.

Anna brought water for Ridge to drink. He quietly asked her about the ransom. He explained to Anna how worried he was about his father and wife. Anna coldly told him, that it is his problem. She advised that the kidnappers would kill both she and Ridge if they saw her speaking to him. The kidnappers brought the telephone over to Ridge. An unnamed person told Ridge over the telephone that his wife and father would be killed if the ransom was not received. While the kidnapper who was guarding Ridge got drunk, Ridge started to cut the rope with which he was tied with. He used the pendant that Brooke had given to him as a wedding present.

In LA, Deacon tried to convince Macy to do a world concert tour. Macy told Deacon that she is not interested in leaving LA because she wants to be with him and Eric. Deacon gave Macy a concert tour jacket with her name on it.

Brooke told Nick that the bird seemed to like Ridge. Nick figured out that the bird may have witnessed Ridge's abduction. Nick left the hotel and followed the bellman to a bar. Nick observed whom the bellman was sitting with. Nick figured that these men were the kidnappers. Nick saw the men at the table drag the bellman out of the bar. Nick heard a commotion, and then he heard Anna scream. He saw her rush to the bellman's side. Nick felt the bellman's pulse and told Anna he was dead. Nick begged Anna to lead him to Ridge.

Brooke and Massimo argue about what Massimo thinks was a foolish act on Nick's part. Massimo says that Nick doesn't have enough experience dealing with criminals like the guerillas' holding Ridge. Brooke says that Nick will succeed because he is resourceful and loves his brother.

When Nick learned that the bellman was involved with the guerillas' he was determined to follow the man, thinking it would lead him straight to Ridge. Before this can happen, the guerillas' kill the bellman. Nick convinces the bellman's grieving sister, Anna to finish what her brother started. Anna tells Nick the guerillas' are expecting her to bring them food. Nick decides this will be the perfect opportunity for him to disguise himself to gain access to the kidnap location.

The guerillas' are furious that Massimo has refused to pay the second ransom, and threaten to send Ridge home dead to his father. Before they can hurt him, they receive a phone call instructing them not to hurt him, but to let him make a phone call to his family proving that he is still alive. Ridge calls the hotel and reaches Brooke. He tries to reassure her that everything will be all right. He tells her they haven't gone through all that they have to be together, for everything to fall apart. His phone call is interrupted by one of the guerillas'. Nick, who sneaked in with Anna, sees one of the men tell Ridge he almost feels sorry for him - just before he kicks him. Under his breath, Nick whispers to himself, "Hang in there."

Charlie Webber arrives at the hotel and lets the information slip to Brooke that Massimo has not approved the payment of additional gold for Ridge's safe return. Brooke is furious hearing this news, and becomes even angrier when they tell her they are going to follow a lead and won't let her come with them.

Bridget visits Ozzie who shares the good news of his new business venture with her. She helps him hang a lucky horseshoe that Ozzie received from his father. One thing leads to another and they share their first kiss.

Massimo returns and Brooke tells him that Ridge called, and that he was obviously being threatened. Back at the kidnap sight, He eases over on the pretense of giving Ridge water, lets Ridge see who he is, cuts the ropes that bind Ridge's hands. Together, they fight off the guerillas', killing one of them. Before they can leave, Ridge is surprised by a lone figure holding a gun on him. "You", he says and the camera pans to the face of the ringleader of the guerillas', none other than Sheila Carter.
