When Lexie asked why, Tek said he worried about Abe and Lexie's stress levels. Tek admitted he still had feelings for Lexie, but that not telling them who the suspect was had nothing to do with that. He went on to tell Lexie that he couldn't turn his feelings off like a faucet and that he would continue to be there for her.

When Nicole finally decided to take out Chloe, Brady called from the desert to tell Nicole how much he loved her and the goodness in her.

Meanwhile, nearby Stan was desperate to hear about Will and settled on calling Kate. Kate, as generous as ever with Sami, told her Will was fine but would never forgive her and neither would Lucas. Then Kate hung up. Sami popped her voice changer back into her mouth just in time to verbally lament her son Will as a suspicious Lucas listened from two feet behind Stan.

It is TEK, and he has come to make things right with Abe. TEK joins Abe upstairs, where Detective Adams has been briefing Abe on the Jan Spears case.
