Back to Jennifer's nightmare. Jennifer and Jack are in the hallway of their home, it is misty and very spooky Jennifer is holding Jack's arm at his write, and with his other hand he is lovingly caressing her check.JACK: (Talking calmly and with great love) I'm sorry, Jennifer.... I have to go.
JENNIFER: Ah, bu.... but you can't go! I just got you back. Jack, we have a baby! You have a so.... you have a son!
Jack continues to caress her cheek. It is difficult to see his face because of the mist, but he has been looking down at her with great love. As Jack says good-bye he continues to caress her, and look upon her with deep love. Jennifer looks up into his eyes, confused, and almost in tears.JACK: I know. I know you'll never let him forget me. (Breathing) You'll tell him how much I (very emotional).... how much his daddy.... loves ( his voice catches) him.... and his (his voice catches again) sister.... and his mommy. (swollows hard) You'll tell him.... that I love you all forever.
JENNIFER: Please! Please, don't leave us.
Jack continues to walk backwards away from her. Jennifer's hand slips to his hand, then his finger tips, then his hand completely slips from her grasp. She hold out her arm to stop him, but to no avail.JENNIFER: (Cont.; begging, her voice cracking from her tears) Please!
Jack continues to walk backwards towards the door, and the bright white light. Jennifer sobs trying to stop him.JENNIFER: (Cont.) Please!
Jack stops at the door and turns around. As Jennifer calls to him, Jack stops at the door, hesitating.JENNIFER: Please, don't leave us! Come back back to me, Jack!
Jack then turns and walks into the light. Jennifer continues to sob, trying to call him back.JENNIFER: (Cont.) PLEASE COME BACK TO ME! WE NEED YOU!
Sobbing in anguish, Jennifer falls to her knees, she continues to call to him.JENNIFER: (Cont.) JACK WE NEED YOU! PLEASE COME BAAACCCK! (Sobbing hysterically) NOOOOOOOO! NO!
Back in the present, Marlena is still caresses her hair, vainly trying to calm her. At her feet, Maggie watches on in tears, as she too is caressing her legs.JENNIFER: (Muttering in her sleep) No, no, Jack! No! No, Jack. No.
Maggie gets up and whispers to Marlena. They walk a few feet away to talk without disturbing Jennifer.MAGGIE: Marlena...
JENNIFER: (Sobbing) no....
MAGGIE: (Cont.) Is there anything else you can do for her?
MARLENA: The only person who can help her now is Jack. Maybe if.... she knew he were here.... if she knew he were alive....
MAGGIE: (Shuddering) Ohhhh.... Well I pray they find him soon!
Scene Four: Bo insists that he has to go down and help whoever it is, if it is Jack or Billie. Hope does not seem to happy at his concern for his ex. She tells him that she cannot believe that Billie is somewhere in the jungle. She tells him it is too dangerous, the rope was not able to hold Patrick, she could not bare losing him. She then convinces him that it would be wiser if she went down, she is lighter and he could better pull her and the other person up. He finally admits that she makes sense, he refers to the person on the ledge as " the body." Hope tells him, "don't say `the body'!" He tells her not to take any chances. They have an emotional moment, and then she puts the rope vine around her waist and Bo begins to lower her down. She eventually makes it to the ledge. She tells Bo she is fine. She looks over and sees that the body is Jack. She places her fingers at the pulse point on Jack's neck and keeps it there for a few moments; then she puts her hand on his chest and keeps it there for a few moments, concerned. Then she shouts up to Bo.HOPE: HE'S NOT BREATHING! I CAN'T GET A PULSE!
She then looks back at Jack, and mutters to herself.HOPE: Oh my God, he's dead!
Scene Five: Back in the jungle, Bo notices that the vine has cut his hand. He removes his t-shirt and wraps it around his hand. He then causes down to Hope.BO: WHAT IS GOING ON? IS JACK DEAD?
On the ledge Hope frantically tries to revival Jack. She yanks him by his shirt, shaking him, and shouting at him.HOPE: NO JACK! NO, YOU CAN'T DIE! COME ON! YOU CAN'T! BREATH! COME ON, YOU CAN DO IT! YOU HAVE TO! Think of Jennifer! Think of Abby, and that beautiful little baby you have! DON'T DIE! YOU CAN'T DIE! COME ON, JACK! THEY NEED YOU! (Gently shaking him again, softly) Come on!
Just then Jack moves.
HOPE: There you are! (Tugging his shirt) That's it! (Putting her hands to his face) Oh thank God! Thank God! You're going to be all right! Let me get you out of here! (Tugging on the rope) BO, HE IS ALIVE! HE'S BREATHING, BUT HE'S UNCONSCIOUS.
BO: OKAY, I'LL PULL HIM UP. YOU BRACE YOURSELF AGAINST THE WALL! BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL!
Hope has put the rope around Jack, and gets out of the way as Bo begins to lift him up. Jack is near the top when the rope slips, Bo musters all his strength to stop him from slipping.BO: (Muttering) Oh, Jack.
After struggling, Jack's body is safe. He pulls Jack beyond the ledge and holds him. Bo is panting and tries to catch his breath. From below on the ledge Hope sighs in relief; then falls against the wall, she is as exhausted as Bo. Back on the top Bo lies Jack's body down and puts his ear to Jack's chest. He then throws down the rope and calls to Hope, "They are going to have to hurry!" Eventually Bo pulls Hope to safety, too. He asks how she is and she kisses him passionately. Hope tells him that he did it. He corrects her, "*We* did it! We're a team!"HOPE: Let's get Jack out of here!
Bo pulls Jack to his feet, then he puts his arm around one of Jack's shoulders to prop him up.BO: Let's go.
JACK: (Mumbling) Jennifer.... Wanna stay for Jennifer. Jennifer.
HOPE: (Exhausted) She's okay.... okay.... we're going to take you to see Jennifer. (Hope stumbles) Whoa!
BO: You all right?
Jack is still unconscious and it is difficult for Bo to prop him up. Bo wants to get going but Hope asks about Patrick. He tells her that they will never find the body. Then Bo mentions seeing Billie. She tells him to forget about her, they have to save Jack. Hope takes Jack other arm and they walk Jack to safety, and back to Jennifer.

(Marlena shakes her hand for encouragement) Is my granddaughter going to be all right?
MARLENA: (Trying to reassure her, but worried) Well, I hope so.
Alice looks up at Marlena, and Marlena caresses her back.MARLENA: (Cont.) I said to Maggie, what she needs is a big dose of goodness right now.
ALICE: (Resting her head against Marlena) Oh....
