She explains to him that a good agent would have fast tracked him to Pentenville but she felt compassion for him when he lost Michael and got to know him as a person not the amoral criminal Rich and Durant described him as. She admits that she has become emotionally involved with him as she pulls out the tape of Maria's confession and then hands it to him as she tells him that she's letting him go. She makes a point of telling Sonny that the witness was coerced into making her confession and that she has since left town and it's doubtful that she'll return. She goes on to tell him that she trusts that he will not go after her. When Sonny asks her why she's doing all of this, Reese informs him that she's contacted her superiors and asked them to transfer her because she can no longer remain objective because of her emotional involvement.

Carly tells him that Lorenzo offered to help her locate him which doesn't surprise Jason. Jason points out that finding Michael would make him a hero in Carly's eyes and that alone would be a motivation for abducting Michael. Carly remains doubtful. She decides that she will question Lorenzo much to Jason's dismay. She assures him that she will be discrete because she knows that Michael's life is on the line.
