Instead, Meg runs to Paul and in front of Barbara, blasts him for scheming against her friends. Paul plays dumb but she announces that he forced her hand and will never trust him again.
As she leaves, Meg warns that she will do what she has to do to keep her daughter safe from him. Damian advises Dusty that he has arranged for his demolition expert to help with their plans.

When Dusty realizes he can't shut off the bomb, Paul grabs the briefcase and rushes upstairs into another room where it explodes. Barbara approaches Emma in hopes that she can stop Meg from removing Eliza from Paul's life.
