Sheridan, Julian, and Luis are in New Mexico in the room of the man who they think is Martin Fitzgerald. Luis asks the man if he is the one who stole money from the Cranes and abandoned his family.

Luis said that it had been such a long time since he had seen his father, that he is just not sure. Julian tells Luis that he had all night because the man wasn't going anywhere. He said that the only way of escape was through the door. Julian's private eye was outside the window, and Julian was making certain gestures toward him. Martin suddenly pulls out a gun and says that he can do whatever he wants. He says that he is sick of living a lie and says that so much had happened.

Luis wants to go back in, but Sheridan advises him to wait for the police. Julian says that maybe Martin wasn't shooting at them. He further stated that maybe Martin was just afraid to go back to Harmony and face the punishment for what he had done, or that maybe he couldn't bear the public humiliation and that he decided to just kill himself. Luis calls out to Martin, but doesn't get an answer. He says that he is going in, because a father wouldn't shoot his own son. He opens the door, but doesn't find Martin. He said that Martin must have gone out the window, although Julian said that the window was sealed shut. When Luis looks around, Julian is gone. Luis tells Sheridan to wait there, he was going to look for Martin. A fire alarm rings, but Sheridan doesn't smell any smoke. She goes to check it out. Julian meets up with his private eye. He tells him that they have to find Martin before Luis does, or all that he had worked for would be destroyed.
