But finally, Danny convinces him he did what he had to do to win. Danny maintains that all elections are based on manipulations. He tells Bill he's cut a deal in order to stay out of jail for rigging the election; he's conceded. Bill feels betrayed since he backed Danny in the first place and ran what he thought was an honest campaign. But it was all a lie. Bill worries about how Michelle will react.

At this point Michelle, who had earlier got into an argument with Ed over his doubts of Danny's innocence, arrives and lashes out stating they should sue the paper. She notices Danny and Bill's mood. However both men keep mum.
