The good lieutenant comes to the Abbot house and wants to talk to John. Gloria says that this isn’t a very good time. Jack is milling about in the living room as Gloria talks to the cop. The lieutenant insists that Gloria go get John. She says that she can’t do that. She even offers to answer questions on John’s behalf but the officer will not settle for that. “For God’s sake Gloria! Just tell him where dad is. Look… Officer my father is-” Gloria jumps in. “Sleeping! John is upstairs sleeping.” Jack knows that Gloria is lying. He knows that his father isn’t in the house. He tells the lieutenant that his father has heart problems and Gloria is acting funny as she worries about his father’s stress levels. The lieutenant agrees to see John at another time and he leaves. Jack turns to Gloria now. “What is going on? Why did you lie to the police?" Gloria tries to say nothing. Jack smells a rat and after a while he gets the answers that he needs. “Dad shot Tom?" He doesn't understand this. “He shot Tom and he is allowing Ashley to take the wrap?" Gloria clears things up. “No! John doesn't know that he shot Tom. If he finds out it could kill him and that is why we have been acting so strange.” JT has the key from Kevin and he discusses it with Paul. “We have to find out where the key fits and see what it is all about. Paul gives the boy some ideas on where to get answers. “Try some banks. Tom was from Detroit right? Try there too.” Mackenzie comes into the office interrupting Paul’s instructions to JT. “Hi! Are you going to help Kevin with the key?" JT says he is. Mackenzie doesn't think that they should do that. “I don’t know. Tom has not had a great presence in Kevin’s life and he is so sad. What if there is something really bad in that safety deposit box? It will make things worse for him than they are now," Mackenzie says. JT says that Kevin is their client and that he has to do what he says. “But don’t worry Mackenzie. I will let you know if there is something important to deal with first.” Paul rolls his eyes. Mackenzie has to go back to the coffeehouse. JT wants to go with her but Paul wants to talk to JT alone. “Don’t do that ever again! Don’t tell about the client’s business or discuss it with your girlfriend! You work for the client and Kevin in this instance makes the decisions.” JT indicates that he understands and then leaves. By the time that JT and Mackenzie get to the coffeehouse, they have news for Kevin. JT tells him that he called Tom’s bank in Detroit and that they did indicate that Tom does in fact have a safety deposit box. “All you have to do is get a plane ticket and go out there to see what is in it," JT explains. Kevin says that he won’t do that. “No money for a plane ticket right now.” Victoria and Nick sit at the bar in the Athletic Club. She is very surprised that their mother is going into this venture with Phyllis of all people. “She is so… volatile. And remember how she was never in the office when we needed her and she always needed all kinds of time off?" Nick doesn't think that Phyllis will be a problem for their mother. Victoria isn’t thrilled about her and even calls her volatile. Nick doesn't agree. She wonders when it was that he became Phyllis’s biggest fan. Later Nick finds out from his parents that the Wellness Spa offices will be in the Newman building meaning that he will be seeing Phyllis and his mother in the halls daily. “No dad… I don’t think that is a very good idea.” Nick can’t explain to them why but then comes up with the excuse that his father will hover over his mother and what she is doing all the time and she will really hate that. Victor says that he will not do that and has promised Nikki already that he will support her but not run her company. Later, when Nick has a moment with Phyllis, he asks her if it was her idea to have the Wellness Spa offices in Newman’s building. She says that it was all Nikki but she doesn't mind being able to see him walking the halls everyday. He smiles. “What am I going to do with you," he muses. She said that if they were in the hotel room, she could think of a few things that he could do with her… then she quickly says, “Well…never mind. It was fun while it lasted!" Then she is out the door. Nick goes to the hotel room with the key that she had sent to him earlier that day. He pauses for a minute and then enters the room. Phyllis is standing there. “I just came to pick up the champagne I had bought for us. It was very expensive. I didn’t think that you would be here.” Nick says that he just came to chill out. She tells him to go ahead. “The room is paid for and I was just leaving.” She walks to the door and opens it. Then she quickly closes it turning to him. “Why did you decide to come and chill here," she asks? Then they are on each other fast. They are kissing and they are joined at the hip. John is at the sight of the shooting. Just being there brings back all the memories that he couldn't reach before. Michael figures that he has gone to the alley and comes running up. One of the memory flashes almost knocks John to his knees. Michael runs to the man to help pick him back up but John pushes him off. He will not get back in the car. “I want to know the truth.” Soon it comes to him. John remembers everything. He sees something dark on the ground. He thinks at first it is spilled oil, but then he realized that it is blood. “Tom was surprised to see me and he asked me what the hell I was doing there. He moved closer to me and he suddenly lunged at me. Then the gun went off. I killed him! I killed him!” Tears come to the old man’s eyes. Michael keeps trying to get the old man away from there but John shouts that he is not an invalid. “All I care about is why my daughter is taking the blame for this!"
