Moments later, Tad rushes into the cabin. He is soon joined by Adam, who is shocked at what his son has done.

Adam corroborating Tad's claim doesn't have any impact on JR's belief that Babe ran away with little Adam. As everyone tries to reason with JR, Dixie returns to the front door to listen in on the exchanges. Things go from bad to worse, when JR refuses to put the gun away.

She tells Babe that she has grown attached to little Adam and wants him to go on the run with them. Babe is able to convince Janet that a life on the run would not be in little Adam's best interest. Resolved to return him to JR as quickly as possible, Janet goes into the bedroom to fetch little Adam. Babe takes the opportunity to grab an iron skillet in the hopes of hitting Janet from behind and rendering her unconscious. When Janet returns to the room holding little Adam, Babe hesitates. Needing to explain why she's holding a skillet, Babe tells Janet that she wanted to surprise her with grilled cheese sandwiches. Janet is touched by the gesture. As Babe prepares a meal she asks about Trevor and specifically how he will react when Janet disappears. Janet shrugs off Babe's concerns, telling her that Trevor has given her the cold shoulder for quite some time now and will not come looking for her. When Babe goes to the freezer to fetch something, she screams after opening it. Buried amongst the food items is a dead body. The face is covered but a loud tie, heavy gold watch, and wedding band can be clearly seen.
