Brad and Katie go to take a shower and enjoy the rest of their day together.

(Police Station) Margo tells Jack that the evidence in the Morrissey case is missing and asks him when was the last time he saw the evidence since he was the last person to look at the file. Carly has arrived and is watching the heated discussion, looking intently at Jack's face. Jack acts offended that Margo is accusing him of taking evidence. Jack tells Margo that he didn't see anything special in the evidence and frankly he stopped caring about the case as soon as Parker was cleared of Liberty's attack.

James who is hiding from Meg goes downstairs to take the knife away from Henry and let him know he is very disappointed in him.

Brad tells Carly that Jack is happy with Janet and she should leave Jack alone.

Janet tells him that he didn't like to lie to Margo because he doesn't know the whereabouts of the evidence. Jack tells Janet that he needs to think and leaves the diner. Carly arrives to offer Janet some advice about Jack. Carly tells Janet that if she is going to love Jack she needs to understand that he lives by a strict code of ethics and if he is asked to break that code even for a good reason it could lead to the end of their relationship.
