Alan reassures Skye that they will keep looking until they find who really WAS responsible for Ross Duncan's death! Afterward, Alexis catches up again with Ric and demands to know what happened between them the previous evening, all the while, attempting to sneak a surreptitious look at the mark on Ric's neck.

Later, when Alexis returns home, she remembers Ric bringing her home and that Alexis made a drunken pass at Ric, but that Ric walked away.
