Harris says no but Shawn arrived and went straight there, so he’s hoping to hear soon. Kayla feels they can’t wait since Steve is in trouble, so they need to go rescue him.

Shawn explains that Harris didn’t want to lose Hope but his conscience got the better of him, so he sent Hope to the villa. Shawn adds that once Harris relayed the story to him, he raced over and didn’t know what to expect, then he gets there to see his dad pointing a gun at his mom. Shawn says all he could think was how Harris said Megan had turned Bo and that Bo had probably killed Kate, so there was no way he was going to let that happen to Hope too. Steve understands as it looked the same way to him. Shawn complains that they were both wrong as Hope had gotten through to Bo and he was the same man that they remember.

Hope continues pleading with Bo to wake up. The doctor says he understands it’s difficult. Hope says they were apart for so long and she just got him back but they didn’t get any time together, so this can’t be how it ends.

Leo questions her being the hookup. Chanel blames Sloan for half the town being on a hallucinogenic and suggests Leo put that in his column.
