~~ A stranger appeared on the island, flashing his Interpol badge to Sandy and introducing himself as Andrew Scott, in search of Owen Scott - no relation. Sandy explained there were many castaways on the island hoping to be rescued. Andrew said he had business to attend to first. When Owen appeared, the men seemed to be in cahoots, which frightened and confused Sandy.
~ Meanwhile, Spenser, Harper and Jack were stationed on the beach, ready to attack any approaching bad guys. Sandy rushed over with the news that a stranger had arrived on the island.
~ Timothy confessed to the Reverend that he had beaten and killed the Captain; and he and Owen had dragged his body into a cave in the jungle. Both men were greatly relieved when the Captain stumbled out of the jungle, injured but very much alive.
~ Owen revealed that he too was an Interpol agent, under cover the whole time. Working in partnership with Andrew, Owen had been dropped on the island long before the castaways washed ashore, on a mission to recover stolen jewelry and capture L. Wapo, international thief of cultural antiquities. The “Wanted” poster image of Lorenzo Wapo was clearly the same man the castaways knew as Dante Robinson, Captain of the capsized Catamaran.
~ The Interpol police arrested Dante/Wapo, but he escaped into the jungle, and later tried to claim sanctuary with the Reverend.
~ The romance between Chip and Loretta blossomed; she accepted his marriage proposal, and the Reverend was pleased to bless their union.
~ Long time rivals Harper and Jack realized their antipathy had turned to attraction; they decided to date, despite their age difference.
~ Andrew called his Mom, then gave his phone to Sandy who called her husband Gord on the cruise ship. Gord hadn’t noticed she was missing, but Sandy was pleased to speak with her boys.
~ The Interpol duo escorted Dante/Wapo to the rescue boat, then the rest of the Castaways said their farewells to each other and departed the island. The Reverend told Sandy he was choosing to stay on the island in order to preserve his newfound health. She left the Reverend alone on the beach, and as the sun set, he found a new companion in “Wilson” the volleyball.
