Seth and Jess answer the policeman's questions regarding her mugging by Keith. Seth notices that she's being evasive and not quite telling the truth. She insists it's because they don't know the whole story behind this guy looking for Cris and besides, she wants to know what Seth is doing in NY anyway. He confesses to having followed her after reading her note because he was afraid he'd never see her again. She grudgingly thanks him for helping her and as they chat, Keith lingers nearby.

Back inside, Nora awakens and tells him she has her memories back, though she can't prove that Lindsay stuck her with the needle, she's only seen her holding it.
