surprised they stepped over that line. But a moment of clarity is coming,
courtesy of Nina, who calls her ex out about the nature of his involvement with
Jake’s mom. While Franco is facing facts, Liz is denying them. The writers plan
to take plenty of time developing the connection between Franco and Liz, but
there will be complications along the way. Expect Nina to be one of them. Even
though he’s currently off in England, Jason also casts a potential shadow

counsel about Nina. Nina’s inability to sever her ties to Franco is so
pronounced that she visits him to propose that they resume their sexual
relationship. Later, Franco stops by Liz’s new abode with a housewarming present
and confides in her about Nina’s proposition - which is when they end up
kissing. Though the both downplay the significance of the smooch, it leaves them
rattled - and intrigued.

Alexis are thrown for a major loop when Nathan arrests Alexis for the murder of
Carlos - a crime, the audience knows, that was committed by Julian. While Anna
is reeling from the potential blown opportunity to nail Julian, he has quite a
different reaction to his wife’s arrest. Julian does feel a measure of guilt
about his wife’s predicament, but he’s also looking for the silver lining.
Julian pitches the idea to Alexis that she can beat the charges and as a result,
they’ll both walk - but she’s not exactly thrilled by his scheme. That’s when
Anna comes to Alexis with a proposal of her own. Anna, well aware that Alexis’s

when she asks to be looped in on the latest developments in the investigation
into Carlos’s murder. Though Anna is not happy after her run-in with Jordan,
Paul ends up overruling the commissioner. While Anna and Paul are hashing out
