For the last few weeks, we have been holding our breath with the Hugo family as nobody knows what happened to Ben.

At the beginning of Season 1, Petra landed on the wrong side of a Russian drug lord. Stefan and his girlfriend were making money by selling drugs, unfortunately, the drugs weren't theirs to sell, and in order to get their money back, the drug cartel kidnapped Petra. Stefan turned to Felicity for the money to get Petra back, but like true criminals, this was not enough and they didn't want to release his sister. An action-packed sting saw Stefan and his police friends burst into the building where Petra was held and in a moment of desperation, the two ladies ziplined down the side of a building to safety.
