Carly informs Jack about Craig's plan to get him off the scent so that he can pass the
microchips. Jack is still somewhat disturbed by the fact that things did go as Carly led
Molly to tell him at the party. First of all there was no sale. Carly tries vainly to
explain to him that she was being tested by Craig and she didn't know that the microchips
weren't in the earrings until he did. Jack is still not convinced even though Carly claims
that she is only trying to bring Craig down. Carly tells him that after everything that
she put him through before, that she would never lie to him again. Carly tells him that
Craig has threatened to bring her down. Jack is not happy that all he has to go on is her
word. Jack tells him how things look to him. Despite the fact that it looks as though
Craig owns her, she actually hates him. She trusted Craig because she wanted to get back
to Parker so badly. Carly admits that she made a mistake in trusting Craig but she want to
get things back on track with him. As Carly and Jack discuss the past problems of their
relationship, Julia calls her husband on the cell phone and he tells her that he is on a
case and that he will be home as soon as he can. Carly marvels that it must be hard to
keep a secret from Julia. Carly tells him about the envelope that Craig retrieved from
Richard Stiles. Carly vows to find the letter and return it to him. He does promises to
try to set up another meeting but vows to take her down with Craig it she is lying to him.
She looks at the compass that he had given her from the bygone days of their romance.
After Jack leaves, Carly decides that this is just the beginning for them, unaware that
Julia has just sealed Jack's future with her.
