After foiling the robbers and winding up with an abandoned teenage felon named Topher, the team decides to take him back to the Hostel after feeling obligated to someone so much like them and because the police are coming anyway and they need to escape. Their parents are tipped off to their general location by the ensuing police chase, but the runaways manage to escape. Back at the Hostel, Old Lace attacks Topher mysteriously (foreshadowing, anyone?) and Nico gives him a tour of the place (much to the chagrin of Alex). During the tour, Topher kisses Nico while Alex is watching from a picture with the eyes cut out.
