Todd attacked Miles again and tells Miles if he could name two of his children, he'll let him live. Miles said he has three; but only names Starr and Jack.

John tried convincing Lindsay into admitting how long she knew about Tommy being Todd's son. She refused, stating that Tommy was Marcie's son and his nephew. She also asked McBain, if he knew about Tommy's paternity why didn't he let the secret out? Lindsay warns him if the truth were to come out, it could hurt everyone involved and she doesn't want to be apart of it if he decides to tell it. John said he doesn't want any of this to come out and Lindsay told him to protect his family by not letting it come out.
Rex and Marcie separately defend Lindsay to Nora and Bo stating that it couldn't be possible that she could have killed Spencer. Marcie, on the other hand started attacking John and Nora's personal reasons for wanting to arrest Lindsay (John's oblivious interest in Marty and Nora's dislike for Lindsay).

Miles says he withheld the information because he thinks Todd is unstable, but Natalie says Todd is never that way around his kids.

Dorian says she didn't. Dorian thinks she deserves the Woman of the Year award. Blair tells her to give it back, recounting how something bad always happens to the winner. Blair tells her about Miles' assertion that Todd's baby is alive and in Llanview, and how Todd beat Miles up after that. Dorian wonders if Miles might be telling the truth.

Lindsay is brought up from holding and claims she won't be saying a word to John, but it was really Bo that asked to see her. Lindsay says they have nothing to talk about, but Bo convinces her to talk to him, privately, in his office. Lindsay asks why he's being so nice to her and if he and John are playing "good cop, bad cop" with her. Bo says he doesn't believe that she killed Spencer, that she doesn't have a motive. Lindsay says she can't talk to Bo without a lawyer present. Bo remembers once when Lindsay says she had something to tell him; she refuses to answer. Lindsay thinks Nora is chomping at the bit to prosecute her. Bo says to help herself, and tell someone what's going on. Bo wants to help. Bo says most times, prior acts are inadmissible. Lindsay is unconvinced. Bo asks if Lindsay's admitting to the murder. She says no. Bo advises her to claim self-defense or to say she killed Spencer to stop him from hurting Blair.

Bo just wants to be her friend, and his offer of help stands. Bo has Lindsay returned to holding.
Nora comes into John's office and asks why he arrested Lindsay without notifying the DA's office. John shows her some evidence in the case, the bloody dress Lindsay was wearing the night of the Truman murder, and says the warrant was in order. Nora asks about the evidence and goes over the timeline with him, wanting to know why Lindsay would keep the dress. John says Lindsay is not cooperating but Nora will still get a good case. Then Nora pretends to be Lindsay's defense attorney, running a devil's advocate scenario with John. Nora tells him that if they press charges against Lindsay, Lindsay's lawyer will get Marty's eyewitness statement implicating Lindsay thrown out, and if they lose the statement, they've got nothing. Nora also says Marty isn't a good witness. John tells Nora that Lindsay went to see Spencer a few days before his murder. John insists that Lindsay did it; Nora says they don't have a prayer of getting a conviction with the current evidence. Nora says they need a motive, and he flashes back to his conversation with Lindsay, where she says she will protect Michael, Marcie, and Tommy. John hedges to Nora, saying Lindsay wanted to keep Spencer quiet about "something". Nora wonders why Lindsay was going to see Blair. Nora says without the something, they don't have a case. John doesn't have a motive, and Nora tells him to find it. Nora says there was a long list of people who wanted Spencer dead, and Lindsay was not on it. John gets the report on Lindsay's dress from the lab, and shows it to Nora. Nora says he was right: the blood is Spencer's. Nora wonders again why Lindsay would keep that dress around. Nora doesn't want to recuse herself from the case and she doesn't want anyone to think that she's trying to frame Lindsay, but something is going on in the case and Nora wants to know what it is.
John tells Bo that the blood on Lindsay's dress belongs to Spencer. Nora says that they will proceed, based on the evidence, and the charges against Marty will be dropped. Marty will testify against Lindsay.

Clint threatens to call Jessica to find out what is going on, so Nash caves and says he needs money to buy out Antonio before he sells his share to the highest bidder. Clint asks Nash how much cash he has: Nash says none, and has to admit that he lost it all in a poker game. Nash says he got himself into this mess and he will figure a way to get himself out, but he won't take Jessica's money. Clint has a solution: take the money from him. Nash says that taking money from him is the same as taking money from Jessica. Clint says it's a loan, and Nash will be charged interest. Clint writes Nash a check. Clint says if Nash doesn't pay him back, he will send Natalie after him. Nash says "not the crazy redhead," then asks Clint not to tell Jessica. Clint agrees.

He never agreed to the week that Nash asked for and it's not out of spite as Nash believes, Antonio insists. It's merely business. Nash accuses him of taking away his future because of his hatred. Antonio doesn't refute the hatred part but he wants to be done with Nash and Jessica and all parts of them. Nash asks him to void the contract but Antonio is a businessman and always keeps his word.

He insists he has proof and hands her the folder that he obtained from the locker. She takes it hesitatingly and reads the letter from Spencer (Spencer too, is "there" to help with the reading). He has the perfect way to destroy Todd and everyone else who hurt him; Blair, Michael and John. He relates how the baby was illegally sold and inadvertently ended up with Michael and Marcie.

He has some information that she can use and persuades her to have a drink. He flatters her beyond belief and expresses how good of a team the two of them can be. She responds by letting him know that she can't stand flattery and he's really not charming. She's rescued when a smiling Miles arrives. He's happy to say that Blair believed him and he feels really good. It prompts her to do something good too. Sarah tells Miles off; he almost got her killed, she yells.

It's all up to you then John, Michael confirms. He's made a decision, John declares. He upholds the law and a boy was stolen from his father, he begins. In any other case those responsible would have been arrested and already serving time. He cares too much for his family though and has decided to keep the secret, he reveals. Michael is disbelieving and ecstatic as a great relief washes over him. John is not happy with his decision and believes that the truth will eventually come out but Michael feels differently.
