Jennifer faces her dad at the station and pleads with him to let Paul go for her sake. Hal insists that Paul should stay locked up and reminds Jennifer about how he kept Johnny away from her. Jennifer tells Paul that she knows that Dusty is alive and that she thinks Paul knows something. Hal says that letting Paul go free is not an option. Jennifer matches his intensity, and says that not bringing Dusty home is not an option. Jennifer accuses Hal of wanting to keep Paul locked up for personal reasons. She tells Hal that Emily is gone. She acknowledges that Emily was a fool to let Hal go, but she is in love with Paul now, and she does not want him. Hal stands there with his stern face. Hal still does not budge, so Jennifer tells him that she will not testify against Paul. The murder charges have been dropped in light of the new evidence about Dusty being alive, and Emily does not have to testify against her husband. Jennifer tells Hal that without her statement, Hal’s case against Paul will fall apart. She gets loud and tells Hal that if he wants to play hardball, she will play hardball. Hal looks stiff as if he is backed into a corner. Jennifer tells him that she needs him to love her more than he hates Paul, and let him go free.

Emily goes to visit her husband in jail. She is all lovey dovey. Paul is still somewhat distant towards her, but Emily is to blind in love to notice. Paul tries to get Emily to tell him what she did with Dusty in every way that he can. He tells Emily that there is no way that Hal is going to let him out of jail unless Dusty comes to the station waving a red flag. Emily insists that Paul will be ok, and Paul wants her to tell him why, but Emily does not completely come clean. She rushes off and tells Paul to keep the faith. An officer comes down to take Paul upstairs to the interrogation room. Inside, there is Jennifer, waiting for him. She asks the officer to give them some time alone. Jennifer looks at Paul, and he is confused. Jen asks Paul if he loves her. He tells her that he loved her from the day that she was born. Jen tells him that she has been confused lately by his actions. She reminisces about how when she were younger, she wrote about him being her hero in a class speech. She asks him when all of that changed. She then tells him that she realizes that in his mind, he never stopped being her hero. She admits that Paul thought that keeping her baby from her was protecting her. Jen tells Paul that she wants to let go of the anger and that she doesn’t want to hate him anymore. She tells him that she is not going to testify against him, and that hal is letting him go free. Paul gets a gleeful look on his face. Jen asks him if he is really in love with Emily. Paul tells her that Emily has what he needs right now. Jen forces a smile and tells him that she is happy for him then. Hal comes in, demanding for the officers to come get Paul and start his paperwork so that he can get out of his sight. As soon as Paul is taken away, Jen turns to Hal and asks him if he thinks that Paul bought her story. Hal tells jen that as soon as Paul hits the front door, there will be a tail to follow him wherever he goes.

Meg hugs him and Paul smiles.

Emily heads straight to see Dusty. She brings him a plate of food. Dusty just wants to get out of there. He asks Emily how her little boy is, and she cannot answer him. She gets frustrated and tells him to stop talking. Dusty tells her to let him go and that he will help her come up with a plan. He tells her that it will not look good for him to be tied up like that if the police are now looking for him. Emily starts to listen. Dusty tells her that he will not mention her name and that he will say he got kidnapped by some old associates. He almost convinces Emily to torch the place with him.
