Isabelle joins Col. Don Maxwell's outdoor group Executive Expeditions hoping to get a story for the newspaper. The group that day is made up of co-workers from the same company and meant to be a team building exercise. Given the option of cleaning up a mounting pile of paperwork, Hamish decides to tag along. Maxwell drives the group hard - too hard in Hamish's view - creating considerable dissension in among them. The trip turns to tragedy. Meanwhile, Alexandra Maclean has returned to Lochdugh and realizes that her decision may be too late to get what she really wants. Esme and Rory have lunch together in public for the first time.
