While Hobie is away in Santa Barbara for a surfing meet, an escaped convict's wife, named Debra Harris, takes Mitch hostage aboard their yacht for Mitch to perform emergency surgery on her husband for a gunshot wound he got during his escape from prison. Meanwhile, Matt and Slade are still competing for Summer's affections when the three of them find a dangerous underwater cavern that houses a huge octopus... with an attitude. Summer's continuing secret battle with bulimia begins to catch up with her despite C.J.'s helping talk. Eventually, after Matt saves Slade from the cave octopus, Slade sees that Summer is better off with Matt and he leaves town for a surfing meet in the Caribbean, this time for good.
