He gives them some more food through the hole Hope dug, which he then covered with a metal plate. Hope asks for some oil of some sorts for her skin because it is very dry. Kurt closes the escape hatch and decides to go back to the kitchen. On his way down the steps, Kurt calls the princess' phone, but gets an out of access message.

Bo says the person responsible for making "Hope" go crazy is Marlena! Bo tells Marlena that she knew what was going on inside "Hope's" head and that she was more Gina than herself, but she continued to push her to remember her life as Gina. Bo asks Marlena why didn't she tell him how nuts "Hope" was, if she had then none of this would have happened! John tells Bo to calm down, but Bo says that he just put a bullet in his wife and it could have been prevented if Marlena had told him the truth. Marlena says she tried talking to "Hope," and she couldn't break the rules. Bo tells her to forget the rules, she should have helped her friend. Marlena says she did what she could, but Bo says it wasn't enough. Bo says Shawn also knew the truth and tried to warn him, but she knew more and did nothing! Grandpa Shawn tells Bo to stop this, but he continues to attack Marlena. Marlena and John decide to go to her office, and G-Shawn tells Bo that this isn't Marlena's fault.
