Jason goes to talk to Michael while he's in the interrogation room with Carlos, after Sonny has urged him to intervene before his son gets himself in trouble. Michael protests that he has to do something because he knows that only Carlos knows where Sabrina and the baby are. Jason, however, clarifies to him that he cannot be speaking to Carlos. It will only get him in trouble. Carlos wants to use him to get to his dad, Jason advises him. Yet Michael has secret reasons he's not about to share with anyone for why he may want to talk privately with Carlos (Carlos could tell him where to find Sabrina and the baby in exchange for a favor).
Sam goes to talk to Julian in his office. She admits she is concerned about how her mom is compromising her morals and principals and putting her professional reputation and ethics and very possibly her own safety, at risk for him. She knows the only reason Alexis is representing Carlos in a murder trial is because Julian asked her to and it's so he can cover his own behind, regarding that. Julian tells his daughter that she needs to know that his relationship with her mom may not be her business. He also asks his daughter if Jason is not asking or expecting her to do the same for him. Hearing that, Sam clarifies to her dad nothing could be farther from the truth, as Jason is not asking anything from her involving having her compromise who she is for him. She protests she thought he cared about her mothers happiness. He clarifies however, that he and her mother are happy together. He reflects to his daughter that her mother, along with herself, his adult son, grandson and infant son mean a lot to him and he values having a family including Leo. Sam then remembers that it's her infant brother's birthday and asks her dad to give them her best, realizing she is busy and cannot attend the celebration. Julian then reveals to his daughter that he cares about her life and wants to know what is going on between her and Jason, to which she assures him things are good.
Alexis finds the witness who saw Carlos murder Duke, at The Floating Rib. He tells her he is not interested in talking. She urges him to give her a moment because Carlos Rivera is her client. Hearing that, he tells her she better leave him alone because he has nothing to tell her.

It will be very complicated and difficult, she warns him, with all that is involved. He tells her he knows that. Hearing that, she assesses that is good. And so, for that reason, she needs him to tell her exactly what he saw when he witnessed Carlos murdering Duke Lavery. He answers and she probes further. After the guy has heard enough, he gets up from the table, walks away and demands that Alexis leave him alone, revealing he is very much afraid of something. Anna enters and needs to know what that was all about.

Alone with Jordan, he assesses that they have both had a more than productive day and have more than earned their date for tonight. He appears happy and encouraged yet she is not. Hearing that, she coldly tells him that she believes they should forget that. She admits to him that she heard his entire testimony to passionately defend Anna. It appears the way he spoke of her and the way they interacted after the hearing, is not exactly professional. In response to that, he asks what she is implying. He tells her if she has suspicions and assumptions about his relationship with Anna, then maybe she needs to see a psychiatrist. He assures her he cares about Anna as a patient and as a friend but it is only she (Jordan) whom he is interested in. He expresses to her that the assumptions she has about him and Anna is something he could be drawing conclusions about. Hearing that, she demands to know what he is talking about, to which he explains that it appears she is accusing him of cheating on her with Anna because he knows she cheated on her husband.

He tells them if they would like to speak to his wife in the future, they may contact their (has and Hayden/Rachel) attorney, Alexis Davis. Alone with Nikolas, she asks where he came from. He replies he was simply there by coincidence on the way to his car when he just happened to see that she was being interrogated.

He admits that he wanted to prevent questioning that could lead to agents investigating his personal finances, which h confirms is his sole concern right now.

She also reveals that today is the anniversary of Duke's death. Griffin attentively hears that. They talk privately about her relationship with Duke and how they found their way back to each other right before he died. They both reflect how it was too late, with her losing Duke before they could be together and his never having a chance to meet his father. She reflects about all that happened a year ago today. She remembers the exact night when she and Griffin's father were ready to plan their new life together and leave town late at night.

He tells her that after meeting her and many of this father's friends, he gets a real sense of who Duke was, She informs him that Carlos has been offered a deal to testify what he knows about how it was that he was ordered to kill Duke.

She knows that Julian ordered Duke's death for obvious reasons.
Alexis goes to find Julian and warns him that she just found out that the witnesses statement checks out. She spoke to him and has concluded that there is no way she can take Carlos' case with any likelihood she can get him acquitted. She informs her husband that she recognized the man when she saw him at the Floating Rib. She attempted to talk to him and negotiate to discourage him from testifying. But he would not listen and ran like a bat out of hell. She reminds Julian she does not think she can win this case for him. Yet Julian is very calm and not worried, however, assuring her he does not think this witness is going to be a problem.
As soon as Jason leaves the station and Michael is alone in the interrogation room with Carlos, Carlos asks him if they still have their deal.
When Jordan goes off and wants André to leave her alone, he tells her he will not do that. There is something he has to say and he is not leaving until she let him say it.

However, she has clearly misunderstood his actions, She is completely wrong to believe he's interested in Anna, he tells her.

Nikolas gets in the car with Hayden/Rachel and seems like he cannot so easily get done with her although she wants to. Right away, he concludes he now knows the reason she wants to divorce him is solely in order to collect $5 million, which she reminds him she can legally obtain from him. He asks her that after they've divorced and she's collected the money, how does he know she will not further blackmail him and turn him over to the authorities with what she knows about him. He assesses she made her point and so he guesses divorce is the only way to go. He seems very calm and confident right then when he notices and empties her make up case to see something she's hiding that perhaps he could use against her.
Sam meets with Jason in the park and they are ready to plan a trip together. He wants to know all about her ideas and memories.

She tells him that their son absolutely loves the beach and swimming. He assesses that's perfect and asks where they should take their future little Olympian. She suggests a little place like a cottage where there are beaches outside. They can tuck Danny in at night and stay up at night in the peaceful wilderness to watch the stars they conclude as they happily draw closer and kiss. Yet it appears they are being spied upon by an unknown and unseen person.
