Once alone with Blake, Harley explains that Mr. Trask, the dock worker claims a woman that looks like Blake paid him to lie about Tory jumping into the lake. Blake is infuriated stating it wasn't her. Still Harley needs Blake to come down to the station for a line up. At the station Trask identifies Blake as the woman who paid him off. Harley claims to believe Blake but Gus advised Blake not to leave town. A defiant Blake says she is leaving town to go to New York with her family.

While Blake was away at the station, Ross and Holly debate where Blake has been. Both notice and find it odd that she has made a 180-degree turn in her attitude towards Ross's infidelity. They can't help but wonder what happened to here while she was gone.

Gus believes that Blake killed Tory while Harley remains objective to her close friend. Neither Gus or Harley can keep their flirtatious passion out of the work place and a fellow officer's catches them kissing.

Reva warns Marah about Romeo. Marah brushes off her mother and calls Ray to come by. She questions Ray about Tony's situation. Ray explains the Santo's honor code and inquires to Marah's suspicions about that night.

Mel and Rick flirt at work. Rick's coughing is getting worse yet his heart is fluttering profoundly for Mel. Rick proclaims that he found a miracle in Mel. He stays beyond his shift so that he can spend more time with here. Reva shows up to inquire about Maria Santos who still cannot speak; only react dramatically to pictures of Tony. Reva tries to speak with Maria.

Tony requests Cass work with Carmen to get a sympathetic judge, as he wants to get out of jail. Ray visits with Tony and tells him that Marah is suspicious that a 5th person was in the house on the night of Cat's murder. Tony demands that Ray make Marah stop investigating.

Marina comes to visit Romeo at the club looking for cash to lay low so her mother cannot take her to California. Romeo denies her request and insists that she leaves.

Tory, still behind bars in her cage, gets a visit from Blake. Blake brings enough food for a week. Tory advises Blake that she has thought this plan through even to the point of her own imprisonment. Blake is not interested. As she leaves Tory to go to New York, Tory screams, "You can't do this to me Blake. Not even you are capable of this."
