Hope asks if he was there to stop a murder, or to stop Franco from making love to Billie. Bo says that Franco is dangerous and if she heard Jill's statement she'd believe him. Hope asks if Jill ID'd him and Bo says no. Hope tells him everything he has is circumstantial. Hope tells Bo if he can prove Franco is really this horrible person she will forget what she saw at the cabin and believe him. Bo thanks her and says he will go over to get Jill and have him ID Franco in person. Franco, who is outside the window, overhears this and rushes to Jill's place.

Jack breathes a sigh of relief and then runs into Billie. She tells Jack about what really happened and says she didn't try and sabotage the wedding and asks if he believes her. Jack says of course he does and they talk for a bit and Jack asks Billie if Bo and Hope were through would she try and get back with him. Billie just says not even to go there because she is sure Bo and Hope will be back together in no time. She then asks Jack about Peter and Jack says Mike will be with Jen tonight so she will be safe but he knows Peter is up to something but just doesn't know what. An inspiration hits Jack and he tells Billie he has to go. Jack calls the airport and pretends to be Peter and finds out Peter is planning to take off in one hour.

Billie tells Hope if she still loves him to go to him and marry him but Hope says she doesn't know if she can. Hope says that she realizes now that Billie is in Bo's heart as well, and she won't share Bo's heart with anyone. Billie says it's not true and Hope brings up Franco. Billie tells Hope why Franco was there and that Bo came because he thought she was in danger and he wanted to help her as a friend. Hope says that may be true, but that maybe, just maybe Bo was there because he couldn't face the fact that she was over him and was with another man. Hope says she has put up with this Franco dilemma for months now and that she even promised she'd marry Bo if he can prove Franco is this horrible man he believes him to be. Billie asks Hope if she believes Franco could be this person and Hope says no, and that it's over between her and Bo.
