Chris meets Kim (his mom) for dinner. Kim reminds Chris how irritated Bob is with both of them for trying to find information about Will. Kim asks Chris why he looked into Will’s confidential files. Chris tells Kim that he feels Will is innocent and is saying he started the fire so he can go home and things will be back to normal. Kim is worried Chris may get into trouble for the manner in which he found this information out. Kim advises Chris to be careful and not tell anyone about his theory regarding Will. Barbara arrives. Chris tells Barbara he looked through Will’s file and feels he did not start the fire. Kim tries to stop Chris from saying more to Barbara, but he continues and tells Barbara that the police report and Will’s statements do not match up. Barbara jumps out of her chair and says she must tell Hal. Kim and Chris try to tell Barbara to keep this information quiet for the time being. Barbara says she needs some hope, so she leaves to go tell Hal. Chris, now disgusted, tells his mom (Kim) she was right about not telling Barbara.

Lily and Holden bring Aaron some dinner at the garage. Aaron is in a good mood as he explains he had an awesome afternoon with Lucy.

Alison says she will not do this. Craig asks Alison if she really had an argument with Lucy on that day. Alison says they had a small fight, as they were worried Aaron would get arrested.

After Lucy asks Rosanna if her dad (Craig) hates Aaron, Rosanna advises Lucy to ask her dad. Pressured by Lucy for the truth Rosanna gives in and says it is all about her dad’s love for her.
