After Kirk leaves, Eden and Cruz have a major dispute on this subject. Eden accuses Cruz for wanting to interfere in her personal life, and for detesting Kirk because he is linked to her moral dilemma concerning her father. Cruz finds Nick in Buzz's bar near the marina. He questions one of the servers, Pearl, who is counting some money. Pearl identifies one of the men having kidnapped Dylan and leads them up to the yacht where he is sequestrated with Sam. Tortured by Carlo's henchmen, Dylan refuses to give him the plan of the gold mine. Cruz and Nick come to help Dylan and Sam, who pretend to be with Carlo willingly. Carlo manages to recover the wrong map regarding the treasure. Eden goes to the Capwell residence. She finds her father with his eyes wide open because of a simple muscular reflex, and is frightened. Back in Cruz's boat, in her bag she finds C.C.'s letter-testament that she thought she had thrown away, but Gina had placed it there without her knowledge. After their picnic on the beach, Mary and Mason also go to Buzz's. Mary finds a pearl in her oysters. Mason makes her leave the formal dress which she had chosen and the one that he had preferred in his room. Mary refuses to show him the one that she finally tried: it is the one chosen by Mason...

Kelly asks Cruz for permission to use the boat to organise a honeymoon for the future husband/wife, by re-decorating it in the colours of Hawaii. Nick discovers that he is being followed by one of Carlo's men.
