David doesn't react well to the news that the gun he was carrying on the night he "killed" Thomas McBain had blanks in it. He bemoans the fact that the last 25 years of his life have been defined by that one moment where he may or may not have taken a man's life. He even destroyed Dorian's love for him because of what happened that night. John and Natalie let David know that they are still waiting on confirmation through fingerprints that they gun they found is indeed the gun David used. They ask him if he remembers hearing any other shots that night or anyone else being in the alley with him. They also inform him that they have a witness who may also be able to verify the owner of the gun they found. John tells David that even though he may not have killed his father, he still meant to do it and that he should look at the possible turn of events as another chance to do right in his life. When John and Natalie leave, David asks the guard to let him make one phone call to his brother.
