She tells them that she loves them and walks away.

Charlie calls Roderick and lets him know that he still has Claire and he hasn’t heard from Hank yet. While Charlie is on the phone Claire tries to escape but he stops her. 2011 flashback, Charlie is giving Carroll an update on Claire’s whereabouts. Turns out he has a crush on Claire, and he tries to kiss her. Then he immediately regrets it and says “I shouldn’t have tried to kiss you, it’s impure!” He starts banging his head against a pipe.
Emma escapes the farmhouse with Joey, and leaves Paul and Jacob behind without revealing her plans. Ryan frees himself from the rope and rushes towards Paul and stabs him. He punches Jacob, frees Megan, and then tells the FBI that Emma has escaped. Weston and a local officer corner Emma and Joey, and the officer shoots Weston.
