Reva goes on and on until Marah asks her, "Why won't you let me go to the concert?" Olivia walks up to them from behind and says "Maybe because I'm the one who got you the tickets." Reva turned around stunned. "This isn't about you Olivia."

Reva talk about tests and projects due soon in school and Marah says "You want me to do all of them NOW?" and Reva says yes because she doesn't want her to ruin her life. Marah said, "Oh come on Mom we all know that this isn't about me and my life this is about YOU and YOUR life!" Reva tells her how an education will open doors for her in the future and she cant give up. Marah said, "You're just mad because you always quit. You let things go. You let dad go too. I'm going home and don't worry I'll do my projects. Because I'm not giving up like you. " She gives the tickets to Reva and left in a rush. Olivia comes out and Reva waves the tickets in the air "Want to go to a concert?" Olivia politely says, "No, I'm actually on my way to meet Josh." Reva tells her that she isn't interested in an argument; she is focusing on other things. Reva says she had to figure out who she was. "You know what Reva, you're the one who left your family and Josh one too many times to go explore who YOU are."

She asks, "What would happen if I stumbled onto Danny and Michelle, the fictional Danny and Michelle while in the palace. What should my character do? She says that "her character", vowed to never lie to her husband again and she wants to keep that promise so should she just come right out and tell him..." Ross seems to understand what she is saying and he says calmly "If an attorney finds out where fugitives are he will have to turn them in." "So that's a bad thing if my character would tell your character in the book..." and Ross says it would be an extremely bad thing.
Michelle and Danny are looking over some maps when they hear Drew's voice. They turn off the lights and hide behind the bookcase. Meanwhile, Cassie watches as Richard and Drew go in.

Richard says, "Just tell me." Cassie continues, "Danny and Michelle called me from their boat and I really believed in their innocence and I offered to help them. " "I see." and Cassie says, "well..." Richard says "they were in there" and Cassie apologizes for not telling him. "I was afraid..." And she says that she knew it would hurt if he knew about it because of his country and she loves him. Richard bursts into the room saying, "It doesn't matter Cassie. Whether I know about it or not! Everything falls back on me! Whether I was aware of it or not!" he goes to the secret passage and says, "alright you can come out now!" "You knew?" Cassie says and Richard says he had an idea and she sure put him in a mess.
