Dixie helps Jess and Olivia pick up a few things from their home, but Nikki gives Ethan the slip, follows them and holds Olivia hostage with a knife! Olivia manages to break away from deranged, knife-wielding Nikki, but in the upset a fire starts. Brave Dixie manages to save everyone, including Nikki, who’s left badly scarred from burn injuries…
