Harley and Gus agree their investigation should begin at the Spaulding mansion where Gus received the notes about Phillip's killer. Gus makes Harley promise to remain at the ice-cream truck while he goes alone to the mansion. She agrees but heads to Harley's Angels the minute he leaves to retrieve a DVD player in order to watch Spaulding surveillance records. As she is leaving with the machine, a security guard arrives and demands to see her identification. She reaches in her pocket and pulls out a business card belonging to Alexandra. She gives it to the guard and pretends to be the very rich and snobby Alexandra Spaulding. He believes her charade and offers to help her carry some items outside. While she is waiting for him, Lizzie arrives and recognizes Harley but agrees to let her go without calling the police.

At the Spaulding mansion, Alan finds Gus alone in the attic. Gus tells his father he is there to demand that he retract the bounty placed on Harley. Alan refuses, saying Harley is going to get what she deserves. Gus gets angry and yells that Alan is going to die a lonely old man. He snatches Alan's briefcase and says he knows the bounty money is in there and he thinks he'll skim some off the top for himself. Alan becomes agitated, remembering he hid the bloody gloves in the case. He reaches for a gun and tells Gus to put the case down or he will be sorry. Gus won't hear it and dumps the contents out onto a table. He is shocked to discover there are only family pictures inside. Relieved, Alan returns the gun to the desk. When Gus leaves the attic, Alan searches frantically for the gloves and mutters someone knows what he has done.

At Company, Lizzie shows Coop the picture she took of Harley and promises not to turn her in to the police. Coop is relieved and asks Lizzie not to go to Switzerland as planned because he needs her to stay with him. Lizzie is excited and asks if it means what she thinks it does. He answers with a passionate kiss.

Reva is talking to Nate, who she doesn't realize is really Alfred, about her son Jonathan and the problems they have had since his arrival in Springfield. Nate advises her to leave the boy alone since it seems to be what he wants. Reva refuses the suggestion and claims she knows her son has a good heart and they will eventually have a good relationship. Nate makes cryptic remarks about full moons and murders. He makes a menacing comment to Reva about how things that go around come around. Did it ever occur to her that something nasty might happen to her for something she did in the past? Reva looks puzzled and begs off of a meeting she agreed to attend with him. They are interrupted when Jonathan arrives and is 'introduced' to his mother's new boss.

Alan arrives at his office at Spaulding Enterprises and finds the gloves in his desk drawer. Alexandra arrives and confirms her suspicion that the gloves do indeed belong to her brother. She gazes at him and says, 'You did it. You killed your son.'

Jonathan is not happy to see Nate and Reva chitchatting like old buddies. Not knowing the situation, Reva introduces them.

He insists Jonathan is not very smart and needs Nate's help to accomplish their goals.

Alex suspects Alan killed Phillip but when she confronts him, he denies it. But she persists and sweet talks him, and he admits yes, he shot Phillip. He tells Alex he went to the restaurant to convince Phillip to stay, to change his mind. But Phillip laughed at him, and said Alan had finally turned him into a monster like himself. Alan left in anger but returned...he saw the gun and when Phillip laughed at him again he pulled the trigger. Alex is horrified! She isn't sure she can keep this secret...but Alan seems to convince her it is best for the family. Alex doesn't understand why Alan let Harley to go jail, but he insists Harley is guilty of betraying Phillip (even though he is the one who cheated on her) and causing him to lose his mind. He also accuses Olivia. But Alex is angry that Beth, Lizzie and she were also considered suspects and Alan stood by and watched. Alan pleads with Alex, and she seems to agree. She tells him she wants to leave the Spaulding mailroom and return to her office. He agrees. She also says they have to burn the gloves. He doesn't want to, but she takes them and tells him she will take care of them.

Buzz is cleaning Harley's office, afraid the bounty hunters will break in and find something that could help them. Danny arrives and asks why Buzz called him there. Buzz wants his help. He wants to offer a reverse bounty, a larger bounty on Harley which would require the hunter to bring her in alive. Danny agrees to help. Marina arrives and asks Danny out to dinner. Danny hedges and she thinks he rejects her. He tries to convince her otherwise, but when she overhears him at Company making airline reservations, she assumes Danny is on his way to see Michelle. Danny insists it's only business and that he will be back soon. He leaves, but Marina is tired of waiting - and follows him.

Alex happens by Harley's office as Buzz is leaving. She tells him she visited the church around the corner. He invites her in for a beer and she agrees, but makes sure the envelope with the gloves is tucked in her purse. He tells Alex he is so glad that she has "returned," she is now remembering she is one of the good guys. Alex is obviously torn - and she tells Buzz she must leave.

Meanwhile, Alan has gone back to the attic but is followed by Sebastian. Alan is surprised when Sebastian says he wants to be the successful bounty hunter to find Harley. Just how far should he go to get her? Alan tells him to do what he has to do.
