Heather admits to her son and Olivia that its true. She was with a man that she met online the night in question. She tells him she feels like a loser on some desperate website for lonely pathetic people with no life who are getting old and ready to die. She tells her son and Olivia that she put up a picture but, knowing they will look to confirm that, she tells them she immediately deleted it. She met this low life pervert in a motel because of how desperate she was. Hearing that, Olivia demands to know why Heather took her (Olivias) car to meet this alleged loser. She tells Heather she doesnt buy a word of this ridiculous story.
In response to Kristinas inquiry that he might be interested in Starr, Trey tells her that its not like that. Shes his roommate.
Michael asks Starr if she does not have feelings for him. She may tell him the truth. She admits that she does have feelings for him. Its not one-sided.

Starr tells Michael shes worried if they got involved, she could end up hurting him and thats the last thing she wants. So she thinks, for now at least, they should just be friends. He tells her hes ok with that although they both know that hes not and neither is she. He departs.
Kristina asks Trey what would happen if Mob Princess did not exist. He did not need to produce the show because hes already a successful producer. If they met, would he be interested in her? He doesnt really answer and she walks away.
Sonny tells Kate hes worried that if she does not discuss her deep dark secrets, it could lead to worse consequences. However long it takes for her to work things out, he will be there for her. What he said in the courthouse he meant, that he will never let anybody hurt her.
When Jason appears to interrupt Johns conversation with Joe, they fight over who should bring Joe to justice. Jason sees that since John was not willing to help him, he does not care if John is tied up and will not help John while he takes Joe Jr. away.
