Did JJ Save Kiara?

JJ had to escape from Mike because he had lost his drugs. Mike wanted him to pay to cover the loss, and if JJ failed to pay it back, Mike would kill him. As soon as he arrived at the location, John B and the others had been waiting for them, but Kiara was missing. So, JJ took John B’s Twinkie to pick Kiara up from her place. But her parents had forcefully sent her to a wilderness camp called Kitty Hawk. They believed that Kiara had been wasting her life with the Pogues. So, JJ headed toward the camp while Kiara tried to figure out a way to escape. They couldn’t understand that Kiara was trying to cope with all the changes that she had to deal with in the past month.


Kiara was not ready to attend school again, but her parents failed to understand her. This was the only way to keep Kiara in line, from their point of view. The authorities at Kitty Hawk believed that Kiara had been suffering from oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). According to them, Kiara was losing her temper because Mike and Anna had the authority to control her. Well, Kiara tried her best to escape from the camp, but the guards caught her and locked her in the reflection camp.

JJ needed eight more hours to save Kiara, but Mike and his men found him in the middle of the street as Twinkie had run out of gas. So, JJ decided to fool Mike, and this time, he fabricated a story about finding El Dorado. Well, money could convince anyone, and JJ managed to manipulate Mike with his words. JJ entered the camp and pretended to drop off some packages. He lied about Kiara’s pet dying to make sure that the authorities would inform her of the same. Kiara played along with JJ’s act, and now she just had to wait for his arrival. Meanwhile, Kiara was moved to a different dorm, and with so many people around her, things would become more difficult for JJ. But JJ snuck into the quarters at night, and the other girls helped JJ save Kiara from the wilderness camp.
