Scott tells them that Jax is in love with the married Brenda and that's why he's bringing forth a false suspect. Jax tells the press that Ric murdered Alcazar. Mac comes in, with Taggert, and gets rid of the press. Jax says there is a witness that proves that Ric was involved in a bad business deal with Alcazar and also that he was in the hotel when he was murdered. Mac asks who just as Brenda arrives. Brenda wants to talk to Jax. Scott says that Ric is a witness against Brenda as Mac takes Ric off to be questioned. Brenda tells Jax that she can't testify against Ric because his testimony will be worse for her than hers would be against him. He doesn't buy it but she tells him that he's not acting rational. They argue until Alexis comes up. She is upset that she wasn't told about the latest evidence and she confirms what Brenda said. Faith tells Zander that she can't sleep with him right now but if he can do an errand for her (and not tell Ned), then she might consider it in the future.

Elizabeth and Courtney go to Kelly's to open it at the same time, after a power outage. Things are very chilly between them. They hear on the radio about Jax bringing Ric in for questioning. Courtney thinks this means Jason will go free, but Elizabeth is upset by the news and lashes out at Courtney. Sonny goes to the police station and glares at Ric, then tries to talk to him, but Scott and Taggert won't let him. Scott questions Ric in his office, leaving Mac out of the loop.
