With reservations, Jim agrees.

After a night of lovemaking, India gives Ross a little morning after scare when she proposes, jokingly of course, that they be married. On a more serious note, she tells Ross that she realizes how complicated his life is at the moment and wants nothing more than to spend time with him. Carmen arrives on Ben's doorstep asking for his help in releasing Danny from custody. Blake is still at Ben's apartment when Carmen walks in and a delightful little verbal catfight ensues.

Meanwhile at the police station, Pilar arrives to offer support to Danny. She is confused about his arrest, particularly after David Grant reveals to her that her family is heavily involved in mob related illegal activities. Danny tries to convince Pilar that these stories are untrue but Pilar is not so easily swayed. She secretly vows to find out the truth. Later when Carmen and Ben arrive, they produce shady but acceptable documents stating that Danny was not in possession of stolen merchandise and he is released.
