Lindsay at the Studio
Celebrating a sale of her artwork, Lindsay turns on the radio and begins to dance. Nora walks in and grins. Nora thanks Lindsay for saving her life, but Lindsay quickly turns on Nora and accuses her of keeping both Sam and Bo on a string. Sam walks in and interrupts the argument and Nora leaves. Sam apologizes to Lindsay about not being honest about his past before and keeping his real identity a secret, but Lindsay throws it back in his face, saying she is washing her hands of him. Sam's explains that he was trying to protect her and their children from his father and his past, but Lindsay refuses to accept his excuse and tells Sam that their whole life together was a lie. She goes on to tell him she won't be coming between him and Nora ever again.
Hank and Bo discuss Bo's findings about Sam and Ben and Bo decides to go to Nora's to have a talk with her about what she knows. He tells Hank he thinks Nora won't ever lie to him again so he might get somewhere with her. Dorian storms into the office demanding to see Bo, but gets distracted when she sees Sykes and Hank pressuring R.J., and she misses Bo's departure.
R.J., Sykes and Hank argue about the lack of evidence or a confession which would pin an arson charge on R.J. Dorian butts in and accues Sykes of having an ulterior motive in going after R.J., but R.J. admits he assaulted Sykes. Hank gets impatient with R.J.'s evasiveness and R.J. tells him he'll answer Hank's questions in a courtroom and not before.
Téa approaches Sykes and confesses she thinks R.J.'s behavior is her fault and Sykes sets her straight. Just then, Hank tells her that he is removing himself from the case and hands it over to Téa.
Dorian visits R.J. in his jail cell and they discuss the fire and Sykes. Dorian turns the conversation around to Viki and Ben and the bloody shirt she found at Viki's. She tells him she saw Viki with a man - the owner of the shirt. Dorian tells R.J. about seeing Viki and Ben together, looking happy and in love and R.J. points out that Dorian has found her means to hurt Viki. Dorian resents Viki's happiness and says she has to even up the score. R.J. reflects on his problems with Sykes, and then advises Dorian to turn in the shirt and be ready to accept the consequences. Dorian leaves and Téa arrives and she and R.J. confront each other about his prior confession. Téa tells R.J. that she is not taking the bait when he tries to make her feel guilty, to which R.J. responds, "Oh, really. Is that why you haven't told anybody?" Téa tells R.J. that their friendship is over and she encourages him to take responsibility for his actions. R.J. says he will not repeat his confession to anyone and Téa walks out. When she arrives in the office, Sykes asks her what happened, and she vows she will nail R.J. to the wall.
Bo arrives and meets the new nanny. When he learns that Nora isn't there, he comes in anyway and picks up Matthew, who's crying. He confides to Matthew that he misses Nora. Bo succeeds in quieting Matthew and Nora walks in and smiles at seeing Bo and Matthew together. Bo gives her the baby and tells her that he is there on official business and proceeds to show a picture of Ben to her, then asks her questions about what she knows. Nora says she has to approach it like a lawyer since Bo's visit is official, and she is not obliged to answer his questions. She does admit that she has never seen Ben, but she tells him to ask Sam about Ben, himself. Bo leaves after they both acknowledge that the rift between them is too wide to cross.
Back at the Llanview PD
When Bo arrives back at the police station, Dorian tries to snag him, but he walks into his office and closes the door in her face. Hank comes in and he tells him about seeing Nora and Matthew. After Hank leaves, Dorian barges in and throws Ben's bloody shirt on his desk, telling him that Viki has the bartender from Crossroads shacked up with her and she has proof. She is surprised when Bo tells her he believes her.
