Brenda tells Jax and Jason that Ric was the one that was in the hotel with her. She is sure of it. She knew that she had seen the guy before but she couldn’t’ remember where she had seen him. She was trying to remember if she had met any associates of Alcazar’s that looked like Ric, but that isn’t the case. Ric was in the room in South America, and he was arguing with Alcazar and Ric was accused of stealing and Brenda peeked in and saw Ric’s face. That was a year ago. The guy that saw Brenda in the hotel was a guy with a gun. Could that have been Ric? She thinks so.
Sonny has figured it all out. He has returned from his trip and he feels that he has all the answers. Ric admits that he followed Alcazar for a time but that was all. Sonny thinks hat the man pushed Alcazar off the balcony and is standing by and watching 2 innocents go down for it. Ric hated Alcazar and wanted him dead but he is sure that he wasn’t the one that did it. He tells Sonny that he is wrong there. He says that he saw the man fall from a balcony but he wasn’t the one that killed him. Yes, he was there, but that is all.
