Cruz puts the night watchman to the floor and escapes from the office of Dr. Schotz with Eden. In the cave, they listen to the tapes which they hid: Elena reveals to her psychiatrist that her father is not Alex Nikolas, but C.C.

Julia accepts the visit from Rita Grant, a pregnant woman who does not want to keep her baby. Mason suggests that she does not defend her. As she did not succeed in making herself heard by Mason, Mrs Whitcomb, the childminder of Chip, asks Julia to help her to plead her case and explains that she left Chip to Victoria that evening. Eden and Cruz go back to the Dr. Schotz's place to find the third tape missing and discover the doctor lying on the floor, murdered with a bullet in his heart. Japanese characters were painted on the wall. Once arriving there, Keith analyses the fingerprints found there: these are of course those of Eden and Cruz...

The death of the Dr. Schotz is on the frontpage of the newspaper. With the aid of fancy dresses brought by Pearl, Eden and Cruz go to the university library in the hope of understanding the significance of the famous Japanese characters. But the old librarian recognises them thanks to the photo in the newspaper and tells Keith. When Keith arrives, Eden and Cruz have already left. Sophia announces to C.C. that she has decided to go on a trip to in a foreign place leaving during the daytime - even for an unlimited period. Kelly and Jeffrey argue about Pamela, who is taking pleasure managing their timetables. Pearl, Cain and Eden persuade Cruz to investigate Alex, who they consider to be the number one suspect. They question Pamela who assures them that Alex was with her the night of the death of Dr. Schotz. She then goes to see Alex and he has the feeling that she suspects him...
Julia decided to resign since her office refuses for her to defend Rita Grant. She fixes her new office on a table at Johnny's. Mason comes to entrust her with Chip, because Victoria must go away. Upon the return of Victoria, Julia confronts Mel and informs him that she knows that he is at the origin of Victoria's drug dependency on cocaine. She goes to see Tori and assures her of all her support to help her to kick this habit. But Victoria is not ready to confide. On advice from Lionel, Pearl organises a meeting between Eden, Cruz and Mr Yamada, likely to help them to decipher the Japanese characters. But Mr Yamada is frightened facing the implication and moves them towards a younger Japanese person who reveals to them that they are linked to a group of very dangerous samurais. Pearl and Cain inform Pamela whom Cruz has in his office of elements accusing Alex of the death of Elena. She repeats it to Alex and he gets ready to leave the city. Having been a bit rushed, Pamela faints and Alex finds her on the floor just a step away from the Last Resort Detective Agency. Cruz and his extras gather her and she confesses to have seen Alex leaving the Laser Palace the evening of Elena's murder. But a mysterious man who followed Eden and Cruz all day long stays outside the agency...

Hayley rejects Jake's proposal to come to work with him as a waitress in The Lair. A friend of Olivia Welles comes to see T.J. and wants to give her services. But T.J. refuses without thinking. Keith bursts in at Gina's while she is in bed with Scott. Shortly afterwards in Johnny's, Keith tells Scott about the episode of the tape exonerating Kelly of the death of Dylan Hartley. Scott asks for an explanation from Gina and does not appreciate that she refuses to tell him the truth about her past. Cain meets a Japanese person ready to help Eden and Cruz. They arrange to meet him in Alex's hotel room. The man is paid in fact by an unknown person who follows Eden and Cruz, and who hastens to call Keith to tell him where to find the couple. The hotel is encircled by the police, but the unknown person intentionally gives the wrong room number to the call taker. Pamela finds Alex at Elena's grave. Alex has a weapon and Pamela throws herself on him, when a gunshot blares...
The address of Alex's hotel is on 1443 boulevard Isla Vista, room 211.
Alex is driven to the hospital in a serious state, the bullet having found a place to lodge in his shoulder. Pamela and Cain ask Scott not to advertise his hospitalisation, in the hope of being the first to be able to question him. Julia is appalled with Mason, who decided to defend the adoptive parents of the baby of Rita Grant. Victoria leaves in full dispute to go to a holiday organised on the occasion of the end of the filming of her movie. While she claims to be not dependent on drugs, she does not succeed in stopping herself from sharing some cocaine with Mel. Julia finds her there and makes her come back home. In spite of the disagreement with Julia, Victoria takes the steering wheel and is stopped by a policeman. Eden and Cruz find the Japanese person who sent them on the wrong track. He gives them the description of the man which paid him to lie: rather young, lame and smoking a lot. The man is immediately assassinated by the smoker in question. Keith is informed that Alex was hospitalised. He arrives there, while Eden, Cruz, Cain, Pamela and C.C. are with Alex. Confined to the bed, Alex confesses to have killed Elena to them...

He confesses to have confronted Elena in the Laser Palace and that a gunshot blared accidentally just before Cruz's arrival. Eden, Cruz and Cain escape the hospital to avoid detection from the policemen. Alex explains to Pamela that he hid the truth to have a chance to recover her. Julia and Mason ask Keith to remove the charges against Cruz. Keith agrees not to charge him either for the murder of Dr. Schotz if he comes in two hours. Eden arrives at the cave and finds a mysterious smoker, who proves to be Kirk Cranston. He kidnaps her and takes her to a chapel where he prepared a Japanese sacrificial ritual. Following the tracks which he prepared for him, Cruz arrives there and discovers Kirk, a dagger in his hand...
Sophia is back in Santa Barbara. At her arrival, C.C. learns that a fire declared itself on one of his oil rigs. He goes to the hospital where the injured men have been taken. Keith learns that Victoria was stopped for behaviour under the influence of drugs and discovers that Mason does not know. He threatens her to reveal everything to him, but Victoria succeeds in persuading him to keep her secret provided that she enters rehabilitation the next day. She announces this to Julia as she entrusts her with Chip and prepares her alibi for Mason. Mason discovers that the rig where the fire took place belongs in fact to Pamela and to his father. Kirk trusses up Eden and Cruz back to back. He tells them that Elena and he were joined by hate against the Capwells and that he helped her to take up her last plan: committing suicide by letting everyone think that Cruz had killed her. He prepares for them the same fate by pouring a can filled with petrol on Eden....
Last appearance in the series of Elena Nikolas.
In spite of the disagreement with Sophia, C.C. is persuaded that Mason already is informing Pamela that she is the owner of the oil rig. Indeed, Pamela comes to announce to him that C.C. forgot to cancel this at the time of their divorce the donation which he had made to her during their union. He promises to sue his father so that Pamela recovers the rig and the millions which she could bring back during all these years. Kelly does not understand why Mason refuses to envisage a friendly agreement. Victoria packs her suitcases for the rehabilitation centre. She phones her mother and explains the situation. Having sprayed them with petrol, Kirk places a wooden board on Eden and Cruz's heads. He puts a candle there and promises them certain death by fire. In the meantime he confesses to them to have killed Dr. Schotz and hidden the third tape of Eleana's therapy, where she confesses her delinquency in Japanese. But Cruz succeeds in freeing himself from his ties and attacks Kirk, who gets ready to stab him with his dagger...
In Johnny's, Lionel compares Japanese characters with Cain on a poster on the wall, which was used for the game by Kirk. Cain knows where Eden and Cruz are and asks Keith to follow him there. In the chapel, Cruz succeeds in gaining the upper hand on Kirk and avoids his shots from a revolver even. Kirk is about to commit suicide by stabbing himself when Keith and Cain arrive there. Kirk confesses his guilt to them and is stopped. In the hospital where Eden and Cruz are driven, Keith informs them that he got a dismissal from Judge Larsen which completely frees Cruz. Cruz explains to Alex that, contrary to what he believed, he did not kill his daughter. C.C. asks Julia to influence Mason so that he leaves the ideas of this chase. Mason ends up offering to his father an agreement of 25 million dollars to spare him a trial. But C.C. refuses of course. Lionel offers Julia to come and spend Christmas with Laken and him, but Julia hesitates. Back for the last time in the cave, Eden and Cruz think of the idea of celebrating this release on an island and getting married there...
