Anna is in Chris's hospital room, telling him that he's got the wrong guy. David is not Proteus, she says. Chris says his gut and his evidence tells him that David is Proteus. Anna is challenging Chris when Erica walks in with a fruit basket. She tells Anna she shouldn't be talking to Chris that way. Anna tells Erica that Chris had David arrested for being Proteus. Erica can't believe it. She wonders how Chris could do such a thing after he saved his life. Chris tells both of them to get out and they leave the room. Outside the room, Erica tells Anna that she has hired a specialist to look at Chris's legs and help him walk again. Erica says she cannot tell Chris that she hired the specialist so he is to believe the specialist was sent by the FBI. She asks for Anna's help in making this plan work. She says the sooner Chris can walk, the sooner he'll quit blaming David. Anna agrees to help.

He tells Greenlee and Jake that the shot that was fired hit the ceiling. He tells them that Vanessa was not able to fire at her own flesh and blood. Greenlee tells Leo that he is wrong. Vanessa killed her niece Frankie, she says. Leo is dumbfounded. He asks his mother if she indeed killed Frankie. Vanessa insists she did not and tells Leo that Greenlee is only trying to come between them. Greenlee and Jake ask Vanessa about the whereabouts of Maggie, which makes Leo ask his mother if she killed Maggie as well. Vanessa tries to reason with Leo and asks him to leave with her.

She asks her hitman to go to the car and he does. She attempts to leave but Leo orders her to stop. Jake wrestles the gun away from Leo and Vanessa flees. Jake tells Leo he was trying to save the rest of his life by preventing him from killing his mother. Leo says he only planned to wound her. They call the police and Sgt. Fry arrives. He starts asking questions when his phone rings. Someone is calling about Vanessa. Leo grabs the phone from Fry and asks what is going on regarding Vanessa. He is told that Vanessa's car went over an embankment and exploded. Fry takes the phone back and Leo sits down, staring into space. Greenlee tries to comfort him but Leo turns away. Greenlee goes to Jake, who takes her in his arms. Fry tells Leo that officers at the scene of the accident were unable to get too close, but didn't see any signs of life.
