Shawn asks who TJ was on the phone with. He lies and says Jose. Shawn asked how his 4th was and if he saw the fireworks. TJ quips there were definitely fireworks.
Molly again tells Alexis nothing was going on with TJ. She doesnít understand why Alexis wonít believe her. Perhaps it is because Molly had been lying for the last couple of months.

TJ and Molly give Shawn the facts of what really happened. TJ admits he and Molly have just kissed, and he doesnít understand the big deal.
Epiphany explains it is her procedure to inform the medical staff before reporting someone to HR. She understands Patrick didnít know that because she usually went to Robin. Robin always wanted to know what was going on. She wants to know what Patrick wants to do about the theft. Ramon interrupts. He knows Epiphany is accusing him of stealing the drugs. Ramon doesnít think Epiphany likes him and this is why she is accusing him. Epiphany is going to let HR decide what has happened. As she leaves, Patrick stops her.

Lulu canít help but feel sorry for Johnny. He just heard his grandfather was dead. Dante canít believe she would blow off work for Johnny, but she doesnít see it as blowing work off.

Sam quickly tells Maxie she is working on a case for Olivia to find out what Heather is up to. She tells her the police have arrested Heather and she wanted to search the bag. Todd enters with the results and Sam asks if she should file it.
Olivia and Steve begin to argue. He thinks Olivia was trying to get dirt all along on Heather, and she thinks he is in complete denial about what Heather is capable of. Olivia hired Spinelli because she was worried what Heather was up to, and she is glad that the police have finally caught her. She didnít want Heatherís actions to hurt Steve in any way.
Sam again asks Todd if there is anything she could do with the paper in his hands. He says nothing and darts out. Maxie follows badgering him about a job. Sam is trying to make sense of Toddís behavior toward her. She notices he looks at her like he wants to tell her something then just asks her to file something. Maxie wonders what a smart publisher like Todd would be doing trusting Heather with a crucial part of the paper. Sam suspects there is something going on between Todd and Heather. Maxie mistakenly thinks Sam means romantically. Sam sets the record straight; there is something shady going on between them. Sam wants to find out what, right now. Her and Maxie head into Toddís office.
Heather asks the officer on duty if there is anyone available to run errands for her. She needs a lipstick out of her purse at the office. She thinks the lipstick will help her mood. The officer walks out speechless. She is annoyed.
Lulu canít believe Dante is jealous. He corrects her. He is not jealous; he just doesnít like him. He looks in on Heather and informs Lulu she moved Anthonyís body. The police donít think she killed him though. Lulu begins to defend Luke. Just because he has run away doesnít mean he killed Anthony. Anna has put out an APB on him. Dante thinks his running makes them look bad. Dante points out her association with her father and now Johnny could look like a conflict of interest. Lulu thinks maybe she should quit working at the police department then.
Alexis is still berating Molly for lying. She doesnít care if Molly feels it is unfair to ban them from seeing each other. Alexis doesnít think TJ is a good influence. She begins to list all his faults. Molly defends him and so does Shawn. He thinks TJ has been trying to be a good kid. Shawn is positive about his attempts to change and be good. Alexis is unmoved by Shawnís words. She doesnít care about TJ changing. What this is really about is Molly disobeying her rules. TJ announces Alexisí objections are because he is black. Alexis is stunned.
Epiphany wants to know how Patrick knows Ramon didnít steal the drugs. Patrick thinks her evidence is circumstantial. He backs Ramon as a good employee. Epiphany backs off and will not go to HR. She warns Ramon nothing in the hospital gets past her. If he is up to something she will find out about it. Ramon and Epiphany leave.
Alexis assures TJ she is not a racist. She is upset they are lying to her and his color has nothing to do with it. She explains they both have to follow the rules. Shawn agrees, but still contends TJís behavior has been great the last couple of months. TJ thanks Shawn. Shawn has no problem with Molly and TJ seeing each other. Molly looks to Alexis for her approval.
Dante and Lulu are still bickering about her quitting her job. She thinks it will solve their problems; he disagrees. Todd walks in and right past them. Dante stops him. Todd just wants to go see Heather. Dante informs him only her lawyer can see her, and Steve has not found her one yet. Todd claims Heather just called him very upset. He would hate to see her blow up given her past mental condition. Dante isnít buying it. Todd introduces himself as the publisher of the son. He threatens Dante with a story on his and Luluís loverís quarrel in the middle of the squad room. Dante allows Todd to visit her.
Maxie and Sam are trying to understand why Todd dumped Heatherís bag on his desk. They suspect he was looking for something. It is clear from the stuff on his desk, there was nothing incriminating in Heatherís bag. Sam wonders if maybe Todd took whatever it was already from her bag. Sam wants to go tell Spinelli what is going on. Maxie begins questioning Sam on why Spinelli hates her. She begins to recount how betrayed she was by Spinelli outing Matt as Lisaís killer. She blames him for having to marry Matt to save him. Sam wants to know why she is still married to Matt when he turned himself in. She says she is showing him loyalty. Sam tells Maxie how badly she hurt Spinelli. She married Matt and now Spinelli has to move on without her. Sam can understand having to walk away even though you love someone. Maxie realizes she is talking about Jason. Sam confides things have gotten worse between them.
Todd walks into the interrogation room and Heather is surprised to see him. She asks why he didnít follow her instructions. She needs her alibi. Todd explodes. He shows her the paternity test results. He screams at her. How could she let everyone think Franco was the babyís father when it was Jason? Heather thinks it is awesome.
Alexis admits banning them completely from seeing each other may have been a mistake. She is still not happy with their behavior, but she is willing to give them another chance to date. Alexis warns any break of the rules and they will not be allowed to see each other again. Alexis begins to spout out all of the rules while Molly and TJ hold hands and gaze at each other. Alexis will draw up contract for them to sign. They agree.
Dante thinks Todd should be happy Heather is in jail. He doesnít have to employ her anymore. Lulu is mad. Dante doesnít want to fight about her quitting. Lulu blows him off to go to work. She sarcastically welcomes him home again.
Ramon thanks Patrick for backing him up. Ramon tells Patrick not to worry. He has Patrickís back too. Ramon knows Patrick stole the pills. He will keep it secret.
Steve doesnít care what Heather did. He is going to help her no matter what. He needs to get her a lawyer. Olivia agrees to help. She hugs him and tells him she is with him.
Sam admits she kissed someone else to Maxie. Maxie understands given her past. She asks if Sam slept with him. Sam says it was a mistake and she was drunk. She says the guy is leaving town anyway. Maxie thinks it is perfect. He will not be around to tempt her, and she doesnít have to tell Jason. Sam tells her Jason saw it, and then kissed someone else himself. She ran into Jason and saw he was not wearing his wedding ring anymore. Maxie tries to encourage Sam. Jason can always decide to put his ring back on. Maxie doesnít think love like Sam and Jasonís just disappears. Sam doesnít agree.
Todd is reeling at the gravity of what Heather has done. Not only did she switch the babies, but she switched the DNA results. He canít believe what she has put Sam through. Heather is indifferent. She tells Todd she was getting even for Sam interfering in Heatherís relationship with her son. Todd is losing it with Heather. He canít believe that she lied to him. The whole reason he agreed to switch the babies was because he thought Jason couldnít love a baby that wasnít his. Heather still insists everyone is still better off. Todd has been walking around for weeks feeling guilty for what he did. Now he has found out how much worse it really is. Heather reminds Todd there is still nothing he can do about the switch.
