Nikki told Nick about Phyllis' involvement in J.T.'s death. Nick confronted Phyllis with his suspicions about her framing Victor, and she lashed out by exposing that Sharon had been there, too. Mia tried to drive a wedge between Arturo and Abby. Arturo refused to give in to Mia's taunts, and Mia responded by insisting that she and Rey renew their wedding vows.

Everyone assumed Katie's new "friend" at the Newman ranch was imaginary. Katie went missing when Nikki fell asleep, and her family frantically searched for her.

Devon encouraged Ana to continue singing, but she was adamant about staying out of the spotlight. Kyle and Fen's rivalry intensified when they filled in as models at a Jabot photo shoot.

Mia invited Abby to have drinks in a phony attempt to forge a friendship, but Abby made it clear that she wouldn't let Mia interfere in her relationship with Arturo. While rescuing Katie from behind the wall at the ranch, the Newmans discovered hidden surveillance equipment and realized that someone had been spying on them. Victor and Nick suspected that J.T. was alive and tormenting them. Michael had the equipment tested for evidence, but there was no indication of who the intruder had been.

Hoping to lure J.T. out of hiding, Nick and Billy plotted to make it look like the women were being held at a Dark Horse warehouse before being smuggled out of the country. At the cabin, J.T. knocked out the guards, swiped the women's burner phone, and cut the power. J.T. tied Nikki, Victoria, and Sharon up at gunpoint.
