"What to do, what to do", Palmer ponders, waving the tape that David made in the air. If he gives the police the tape, it will set Leo free, but it will send his "beloved" wife to jail. How can he possibly make such a decision, he wonders, then turns to Vanessa and declares that she must decide. Palmer enjoys watching Vanessa squirm, if she tries to save herself, she'll be sending her darling son to prison. So Vanessa chooses neither and asks Palmer to call and pull some strings and make the whole situation go away.
