Meanwhile, Jason goes to some alley near the warehouse and witnesses one of Alcazar's men hand Johnny, Sonny's bodyguard a package of money, thanking him for doing a good job for him. Jason waits until Alcazar's man leaves, and comes up behind Johnny while he is looking at the money. Jason confronts him about it. Johnny's face whitens when he sees Jason. Jason asks him why he betrayed Sonny and asks him if he was the one who let the woman in to Sonny's place to pretend to be Lily. Johnny gets really nervous and tries to explain that he needed the money because he got in too deep with gambling debts and didnt' know what to do. Jason isn't interested in his excuses and demands to know what he knows about Alcazar's scheme against Sonny.
