Carly asked Jason if she was crazy for going to the cops instead of Spinelli. Jason reasoned that they used Spinelli for pretty much everything, but Carly thought she could use Spinelli as a "fallback." Carly approached Dante at the station and explained the strange phone calls she'd been getting. He took her phone to trace the number.

In the interrogation room, Jason wondered why Carly had waited so long to tell him about the calls. Carly had thought she was overreacting, but during the last phone call, she'd heard an explosion. She related that she'd missed him, because she knew she could always go to him for anything. She could count on him and acknowledged that she probably took advantage of him. She realized that he always found a way to fix her problems, so she wanted to help him fix things with Sam. Just then, Dante entered and revealed that he'd gotten a hit on the phone number. It was a pay phone off of "Route 35." Carly wanted to go see the pay phone, and Dante agreed to meet her there.

A short while later, Dante, Carly, and Jason found the pay phone as someone watched from the bushes. Carly walked away thinking that they'd missed some kind of clue in the darkness. Dante quietly informed Jason that Morgan had been killed "two-hundred yards from here. He died in an explosion."

Ava told Chase that the insurance value of her broken sculpture was fourteen thousand dollars, and she wanted the culprit caught. He asked for the security camera footage as Griffin entered, distracting Ava. She filled him in on what had happened, and then she took Chase to her computer. He emailed himself the picture of Mike and promised to forward it to "all local units." Griffin looked at the picture and realized, "I know that man."

At the hospital, Sonny asked Dr. Bensch if he'd referred Mike to Griffin because he'd had an inkling of what was going on with Mike. Dr. Bensch cited doctor-patient confidentiality, so Sonny instead asked how long the progression of the disease would take. The doctor believed that the best hope was medication for a "slow deterioration," but the "long-term outcome is inevitable." Sonny appreciated the honesty. Just then, Sonny's phone went off, and he answered it to Griffin, who summoned him to Ava's gallery.

Sonny arrived at the gallery, and Ava explained what had happened with Mike, including how he'd thought that the gallery was Luke's club. "Is he really that far gone?" Sonny asked Griffin. The doctor explained that Alzheimer's wasn't steady or consistent, and it went in cycles of lucidity and disorientation that could be made worse by "emotional strain." Sonny's phone rang again, and it was Mike. Sonny offered to pick Mike up, to which a worried Mike replied, "You should."

Ava packed the pieces of the broken sculpture carefully into bubble wrap with gloves on. She told Griffin that she'd probably be on the phone with the insurance company all night, so he could go. He refused to leave until they talked about Valentine's Day. She insisted that there was nothing to discuss, but he'd noticed her suddenly pushing him away. She revealed that, ever since her surgery, she was terrified for Griffin to see who she really was and leave her to find someone else who was "a saint like you."

Griffin replied that he saw who Ava truly was, and she knew that he accepted it. She exploded that she was in love with him. She was in a healthy relationship for the first time and loved someone who was good for her for the first time, and it scared her. She confessed that that was what she'd been planning to tell him on Valentine's Day. "I love you," she concluded.

Sonny arrived at the police station and asked the officer at the desk for Mike. The officer directed Sonny to Chase, who gestured toward the interrogation room. Sonny entered the room and found Mike upset and cuffed to the table. Mike apologized and acknowledged that he'd "really screwed up." He realized something had to be "seriously wrong" with him, since he'd forgotten that Luke's club had burned down. Sonny promised to cover the damage and get Mike out of the station.

Sonny approached Chase and asked to take Mike home. Chase replied that Mike had been arrested for trespassing and vandalism, so he wouldn't be getting out that night. Sonny asked to speak to Dante, but Chase revealed that Dante was out on an assignment. Sonny intended to call his son, but Chase informed Sonny that no call would change the fact that Mike had committed a crime. Sonny divulged that Mike had just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, so he hadn't known what he'd been doing. Sonny promised to compensate Ava for the damage if he could just take Mike home.

Kiki was studying at the Floating Rib when Dr. Bensch approached. She explained that the library had been too quiet for her. Dr. Bensch ordered enough food for both of them, as he realized that she hadn't eaten. He sat down next to her and helped her study for her Organic Chemistry midterm exam. She stated that he made it seem simple, but he revealed that he'd been doing it for a long time.

The food arrived, and Dr. Bensch urged Kiki to dig in. A short while later, she admitted that the food had "hit the spot." She thanked him for dinner and for the mini-tutoring session. He acknowledged that the class was very tricky, but his door was "always open" for her if she needed help.

Elizabeth made sure that Franco really wanted to spend his last night as a bachelor in a session with Kevin. Franco insisted that he was where he wanted to be, which was "the best me for you." Epiphany appeared and expressed her disapproval about Elizabeth defying "tradition." Kevin emerged from his office, and Franco followed him in. When he was gone, Epiphany insisted on taking Elizabeth out for drinks.

At the Floating Rib, Elizabeth feared that Felix had planned a big party, but she was relieved to find out that he hadn't. She didn't want a bunch of people wishing her well while simultaneously thinking that she was making a mistake. Epiphany countered that only Elizabeth's opinion mattered. Elizabeth admitted that she thought only she and her boys saw the real Franco. Epiphany hoped that Elizabeth was right about Franco.

Elizabeth knew that Epiphany remembered what Franco had been like before his tumor had been removed. Epiphany confided that, if she had any doubts, she would have had Max and Milo "disappear" Franco. She added that she would go "a long way" to protect her loved ones, Elizabeth included. She related her protectiveness to Jason, who Elizabeth knew still didn't understand how happy Franco made her.

Franco was convinced that Epiphany was going to persuade Elizabeth not to marry Franco. Kevin reminded Franco that many had tried over the past year, so "why now?" Franco related that, if Elizabeth ever found out that he had another secret, she would never trust him again. Kevin urged Franco to share the last thing he'd remembered from his childhood. Franco told Kevin that he and Drew had been playing hide and seek. He'd found Drew in a toy chest, but instead of ending the game, he'd locked Drew inside the chest.

Kevin observed that Franco was putting an "adult judgment on a child's action." He explained that a child could have any reason or no reason for locking someone in a chest. Kevin went on to say that, if Franco chose to marry Elizabeth without disclosing his history, he had to live with the consequences. Franco exploded that he was done seeing Kevin and demanded that Kevin "keep your mouth shut" to Elizabeth. When he was gone, Kevin got a phone call about lab results. He asked for copies immediately.

A short while later, Franco greeted Elizabeth and Epiphany at the Floating Rib. He wanted to see her one last time before midnight. Epiphany took that as her cue to leave. She hugged Elizabeth and wished Franco luck. She hugged Franco, as well, but she whispered to him that, "if you hurt her, you'll have me to answer to."

Anna stopped short when she saw Alexis and Finn talking at the hospital. Alexis was still stinging from the election and feeling like she'd let people down. Anna walked by and greeted the two. Alexis explained that their A.A. meeting had just ended. Anna expressed her sympathy to Alexis about the election and added that Alexis didn't deserve what had happened. When Anna was gone, Alexis demanded to know why Finn had stayed silent. She advised him to go after Anna to clear things up, but he reminded Alexis that Anna had shot him down the last time he'd tried to tell her how he felt.

A few minutes later, Alexis was down on herself about the election, and Finn urged her to "fight harder next time." She revealed that it was her only election, so he thought she could fight in a different way. She appreciated his encouragement but told him that they wouldn't be sleeping together again. She didn't want to compromise either of their sobrieties, and he admitted that he needed a friend.

Neither Alexis nor Finn wanted to lose the friendship, so they pinky swore that they would never sleep together again. They wanted to get something to eat, but Alexis warned him that, if Anna saw them out together, it would wreck whatever relationship he and Anna had. He confessed that it had been over before it had started. Anna couldn't or wouldn't open up to him, and he didn't know why.

Anna was reading an email about her and Finn's WSB honors when someone sat down next to her. "What took you so long?" she asked Andre. He curiously explained that he'd been summoned to the warden's office that morning and told that the WSB was reviving their memory mapping project. He continued that, in exchange for his cooperation, his sentence would be commuted and his record expunged. He wondered if she knew anything about it, but she shook her head innocently.

Anna wondered if Andre could duplicate his process without his notes. He was confident that he could, and he admitted that he was a lot more comfortable knowing that his project was being funded by the WSB instead of Faison. Anna confided that, even though Faison was dead, she still felt sick hearing his name, especially considering their child. Andre wondered if she'd told Finn, and Anna answered that there was no need, because they had no relationship. She explained how she and Finn had gotten closer, and also how she'd almost gotten him killed twice.

Anna thought she was "bad for Finn's health," but Andre reminded her that Cassandra was in a coma, and Faison was dead. He knew that she could think of a million reasons for her and Finn not to be together, but she couldn't change her feelings. She thought it was better for less people to know her secret, anyway, as it would shatter Robin's faith in Anna. She added that the only gift she'd given her other daughter was not knowing Faison. Andre respected her decision, but Anna could tell that he didn't agree. "As a shrink or your friend, it's not my call," he answered.

Andre politely declined Anna's offer of a place to stay, and he excused himself to arrange a room at the hotel on the WSB's dime. He was looking forward to some privacy. When he was gone, Kevin sat down next to Anna, citing his promise to keep Anna "in the loop" regarding Faison's autopsy. Lab results had revealed that Faison had suffered from Huntington's disease, which was a genetic brain disorder that he could have passed down to his children.
