Tony is still in his prom tux but it is the next morning. He is having a cup of coffee and waiting. Ray comes in and tells him that he got his message and came as soon as he could. He asks Tony what happened and Tony tells him nothing happened and that seems to be the problem. He goes on to tell Ray about the hotel and how Marah was upset. He tells Ray that he never felt like this before and found himself preaching to Marah about how they should wait and she was offended. He thinks he made a big mistake. Ray tells him he thinks he did the right thing. He tells Tony that he shouldn't take his commitment to Marah lightly by jumping into bed with her. Ray believes Tony's control shows how he deeply his feelings go for Marah. He reminds his brother that they were brought up to see women in two different categories, the virginal type you marry and the loose women you party with. Tony is upset and tells Ray that he finally did something right and it has lost him everything he ever wanted. Ray tells him that Marah will realize he was right when she thinks it over but in the mean time, Tony should go to her and show her that he loves her with flowers or a poem. He tells Tony that now that he has had time to think about things he will be able to express himself better. Ray asks Tony why he came to him and not Danny. Tony says he gives okay advice for a priest and in some ways he was blaming God and him for his religious beliefs where Marah is concerned.

She tells her that she had the seduction act down but when she opened the door barely clad in a negligee, it wasn't Ross at the door but Gus. She goes on to tell her mom how Ross showed up moments later and she had to work on the seduction that much more after they got Gus to leave. Blake says she had Ross talking about needing to replace their wedding photo with a new one and Gus barged in again, this time on the phone. He arrested Danny and Ross had to go to the station. Holly wonders what is wrong with Gus; he has been badgering Buzz as well. Blake tells her that he wants to know about her source and she is going to use that to get the inside information she needs for her sequel. She goes to call Gus. She tells him she heard he has been gossiping about her. She is annoyed that Ross is busy having to take care of Danny, due to him. She tells him if he wants information on her source he should ask her not her friends because they won't talk. Gus tells her he will be over in 20 minutes and he asks her to wear the negligee again. She says no and hangs up. Blake asks Holly to watch the kids again. She needs to have a professional fact finding meeting. Holly takes the kids and leaves.
Gus arrives awhile later and is disappointed that Blake has clothes on. He says he preferred her earlier greeting. She says it wasn't meant for him and she didn't appreciate him interfering with her afternoon with Ross. She thinks the timing was kind of obvious. Gus tells her he wants to know her source. She says she won't tell him and he should stop asking her friends because he is alienating them. Gus says her friends are defensive and that means she knows something major. Blake doesn't think he has any friends. She says not to harass anyone else anymore or he won't get what he wants. He tells her he always gets what he wants. Blake tells him he has to know how to ask for something in the right way. She goes on to say that telling him who her source is would be a breach of ethics. She says she needs to know what he would do with the information and he has to promise to protect her source. In exchange he has to tell her real life Santos stories. He says he doesn't know anymore but he will pull up some files to see what he can find. Blake says if she is pleased with the information they may be able to make a deal.

Richard says she is more deluded than he thought. Edmund's reign will be short and so will hers. Richard hopes she enjoyed herself. They leave for the palace.
In the throne room, Dax and Edmund are discussing Richard's arrival. Dax wonders whether Edmund's invitation to Richard was sincere.

At the Springfield Police Department:
Michelle is talking to Harley. She says Danny doesn't deserve this. Michelle thinks she is helping Gus too much. They both know that Danny doesn't belong in prison. Harley says the arraignment will be this afternoon and Harley has to attend in Gus's place. Michelle says if she is really their friend, she can help Danny make bail. Harley says she is just presenting the facts; she doesn't have control over bail. The prosecution will present Danny as a flight risk. Michelle says now that Danny is a father and gone straight he won't run. She asks again for Harley's help. Harley tells her she has to do her job. Michelle asks Harley if she thinks Danny will run and Harley tells her she doesn't. She doesn't think Danny would leave Michelle holding the bag. Michelle talks about Gus's tactics and how Danny had plenty of time to run but he didn't. Why would he run now? Michelle is asking Harley to do what is right. Harley says she is concerned about the evidence but she is also concerned about Gus's vendetta. She will keep an open mind and do what she can.
After the arraignment and bail hearing, Harley is back in her office when Gus storms in. He is yelling at Harley for getting in bed with the mob. He tells her to take her stuff and get out because she is fired. He grabs a box and dumps the contents out and starts throwing Harley's stuff into it. He tells her she had no right to help Danny get bail. He has put his life into this case and she ruined it because Danny will run. Harley refuses to leave. She tells Gus that the judge asked her a question and she was honest in her reply. If he has a problem with the bail hearing, he should talk to the judge. Gus says he doesn't understand why she wants to stay now when she has been trying to get off this case since he came into town. Harley says he needs someone to watch over him and not let him play funny with the evidence. She tells him he is stuck with her and now she is going to the Bauer's to dismiss the surveillance team. Gus doesn't want her to but she tells him that Danny is no longer a suspect, he is a defendant and Gus's spying days are over. She leaves, saying, "see you tomorrow, partner."
