At the Bauers':
Michelle tells Danny the bullet went straight through him and assures him that he will be okay. She tells him that Tony and Rick left to get the bad guys to follow them and that she and the baby are fine. She is applying pressure to the bleeding but wants to call an ambulance. He tells her they can't call anyone, the cops will screw it all up. She promises not to call them but apparently one of the neighbors did because they hear a cop car outside. Michelle tells him they have to get him upstairs right away so they won't see him. She helps him out of the chair and up the steps to her room.
Outside, Harley and Frank are looking around. Someone called with reports of gunfire. They find the one hit man in the bushes dead. Frank goes to the door of the house. Michelle is inside cleaning up and covering the blood on the chair with a quilt. Frank and Harley come in and ask what is going on. She tells them that the hit man came and Danny ran. She doesn't know where he is. They aren't convinced and ask her to trust them. They tell her they can help her. Michelle tells them that Danny left with Tony in Rick's car. She goes over what happened with Abuela and the hit men coming in. They tell her that the guy outside has a broken neck. Harley goes to put out an APB on Danny and Tony so they can find them and protect them. Harley and Frank talk about the situation. Michelle says she wants to check on the baby. Frank tells her to get some sleep if she can.
Michelle goes into her room and tries to get Danny to wake up. She is worried about his blood loss and tries to check his wound again. Michelle calls Claire and asks her to help her. She tells her that it is Danny and she wouldn't have called if it weren't an emergency. She asks Claire if she can trust her and begs her to help her. Claire tells her she doesn't have a great track record with trust but she will do anything for her. Michelle thanks her for being honest and tells her that Danny has been shot. She tells her not to let on to Alan what is going on and there are also cops downstairs she will have to dodge but she needs her to help them. Claire tells her she can handle it and will be over there as soon as she can.
Claire comes in with a gym bag. She tells the cops she was driving by and saw the cars. She wants to see Michelle and the baby. They tell her to leave but she doesn't. She barges in and Michelle asks what she is doing there. She yells at Michelle asking why the mob was in the same house as her grandson and then demands she see him right away. Michelle takes her up telling Harley and Frank that is the only way to get rid of her. Harley tells Frank she is going to go up and help Michelle with Claire.
Michelle thanks Claire for everything while Claire looks at Danny. She tells Michelle that he is lucky, nothing major was hit. She tells her that he has to have antibiotics and fluids as well as a transfusion. Michelle tells her to take her blood because she and Danny were a perfect match when the cross-typed them at the hospital. Claire says she could get in so much trouble for this and Michelle says she won't say anything. She tells her to roll up her sleeve and lay down beside him.

Then he goes to grab a paper and beats up the paper machine until he gets a paper out. Everyone is staring out him like he has some disease. Later, Rick goes back out to the car and tells Tony that he made sure the guy would remember him and he is going to make sure he also sees him get on the bus and then Danny should be okay. Tony asks him where he should ditch his car. Rick tells him not to worry about it just to help himself. He thanks Tony and tells him how great he was getting them out of the house. He is glad Tony was on the right side and tells him he trusts him. Rick gets out and Tony tries to fight off his lethargy. He rubs his shoulder and is shocked when he pulls his hands out to find it covered in blood. He presses a towel against the wound and when he looks again the towel was drenched in blood. Tony turns on the radio and hears that the police are looking for the car he is in as well as he and Danny. He decides he has to get out of the car and starts walking.

He can't believe she is thinking of working with Edmund. She tells him that everything that has happened wasn't Edmund's fault.
