Storyline

In this episode that replays the same day's events from numerous viewpoints, John, growingly alienated with life and both unable and unwilling to face his own destiny, runs away with Riley for a getaway to Mexico where he wants to show her the life he wishes he had, unaware that Cromartie is hot on their tail, and has taken Sarah hostage. Elsewhere, Derek and Cameron are forced to team up to find John and Riley before Cromartie does, while Ellison finally discovers that Sarah is alive when John and Riley land in jail from a barroom brawl, which reveals their location to Cromartie.
