Maggie tells Lena that Bianca doesnt need her help. Lena insists that Bianca shut her out completely for no reason.

Kendall punches in the combination, but the safe wont open. She looks disappointed and tells Aidan that Michael must have changed the code. She hands Aidan the numbers and tells him shes going to try to figure something else out. She soon comes back with a trolley and tells Aidan they can haul the safe out. Aidan agrees and says they can replace the safe with a dummy, and that way theyll be able to spend more time trying to open the safe.
