Jordan arrives at the hospital to get a statement from Lucas. Lucas explains that he was attacked, but can't describe the assailant, who was wearing a lab coat, cap, and mask.
Jason and Sam continue to put the pieces together. They decide that Nikolas staged the mess in his room, put a dummy on the rocks below for whomever to find and think was him, then escaped through the tunnels after removing the dummy. I say, that's a lot of moving parts that have to work just right.
Nathan wants to confess to Maxie, who suddenly doesn't want to hear it. Maxie stops interrupting long enough for Nathan to explain that he was upset by Claudette cheating on him. As a result, he got stinking drunk, found her in bed with someone, shot the lover, and passed out. Nathan says he never reported it, though he tried to find the injured party and never did.
Maxie is shocked with the lies and feels this isn't the Nathan she fell in love with. Nathan wonders if they're still getting married, but Maxie's worried that Claudette could show up and mess everything up. Maxie needs time to sort things out.
