She's only concerned over Jen being a suspect in Paul's murder again, she says. Bo advises Van that she probably won't be able to get Antonio out on bail due to the charge of premeditated murder. She gets the details on Antonio's life as a cop, both the good and the bad.

Van and John agree that they're the best things in each other's lives.

A depressed Lindsay arrives at Ultraviolet with R.J. Now that Rex is free, she and Jen are the top suspects again. While R.J. leans over to give her a kiss, Riley is pulling Rex away from Jen. Telling her that she was into it as much as he was causes Rex to be slapped, hard. Jen tells him that what she feels for him is pity, not love, even if he does refuse to believe it. She orders him to stay away from her. He stops to tell Lindsay he's done all he can for her, it's Lindsay's turn now. She's worried that Rex knows something that will betray Jen but her daughter is confident he'd never do that. When Nora and Daniel show up to hear the band, Riley demands that his father leave. He told Riley that Jen was the top suspect in the murder in order to prepare him, he confesses to Nora. He's sorry now for what he did. Later, she overhears him talking on the phone about their May 1 wedding and how Nora will help at the primaries. Accusing Daniel of marrying her for his career, Nora is thrilled to hear him speak about how she turned his life around, about how much he loves her and yes, how she will give him credibility. He wants her to be proud of him and is doing everything for her. Lindsay is annoyed to see the pair and R.J. kisses her again, for a distraction. She wonders why he has kissed her several times to distract her and he admits they were just excuses. She doesn't want to jump into anything and would hate to lose their friendship, she discloses. He'll just continue to make excuses then, he says jokingly, and they kiss again.

While at the diner Cris hears the usual voice telling him "it's time" and when Carlotta sees him, she's saddened to see that her son is no longer looking like his old self, that he's disappeared.
