She lays out how it would work: she and John stage a fight and she goes to RJ where she pretends to be jealous over his and Sonias relationship. If she were to confess some feelings to RJ, he would trust her and reveal what hes really up to. John says it sounds like a movie plot, not real life, but she insists that she can be very convincing. John is concerned with her safety, but she tells him she will worry about that, and that he should have faith in her. She wants to know if RJ really could have murdered someone, if she could have overlooked that aspect of his personality in all their time together. John gets a phone call and has to leave.

Tico is telling Kevin that yes, even though they are complete strangers, he will back him politically. Kevin asks what Tico has to bring to the table, given his family name and background, implying that Tico would be more of a liability. Tico admits that he would have to be behind the scenes, but that he would do whatever is necessary to get Kevin to where he belongs, not saying that Kevin would then owe him, but its obvious thats part of the idea.

She apologizes for her wrong assumptions, such as assuming he was behind the attack on John; she says she was misguided about that. He questions her motives, and she tells him there are none. He tries to figure out what she is up to, and she reassures him that if they have no future, they can still be friends. He takes her hand and says hes missed her.
Natalie tells John she is worried about Paul and Rex being friends because of Rexs habit of looking for the quick buck never being concerned with the legality of the means - and not wanting Paul to get sucked into that kind of thing. John agrees that its reasonable not to want to live with a criminal, and that her concerns are sensible; he suggests she do whatever she has to in order to prove to herself that Paul deserves her.
Rex is explaining how the theft will go down, and he and Paul get into a discussion about some aspects of it. Paul says that he has lots of experience in this area and that maybe Rex should listen to him, but Rex doesnt want his input and says the deal is off.

Sonia is talking to RJ, asking about Evangeline and her possible motives for sniffing around him at just this point in time.

He warns her that if she starts playing games with him he will be the one to finish them.
Jessica tells Kevin that she is very concerned about Asa, and he admits that he is too. He is also upset that Asa has refused to see a doctor, but tries to convince them both that he will be okay; he has to be. She tells him that he is beginning to sound like the old Kevin. As she leaves, she tells him she will call later to check on Asa.
Rex agrees to keep Paul in on the plan, if Paul agrees to follow orders. Natalie arrives and asks what is up with the job opportunity; Rex tells her its not a sure thing and excuses himself, but Nat follows him out into the hall and warns him not to involve Paul in anything illegal. She tells him to stick with his pride over the community center work, and to not do things hell regret. He tries to blow her off, but she reminds him that she knows him too well, and reiterates that she doesnt want him getting Paul into trouble.
John tells Evangeline that he knew she would go to RJ despite his cautions, and she tells him about their conversation, including the part where she said she missed him.

As she is lining up her shot, she tells him what she plans to do with RJ, and he leans over to tell her that he doesnt like the whole idea.

She is still berating him somewhat over this, and he begs her not to be down on him, saying it would ruin his life if he didnt have her. He asks if she believes that he loves her and she admits she does, adding that what she loves about him is how he accepts her for what she is. She says she will do the same for him by letting him tell her what Rex is trying to drag him into. She promises not to get mad, and to just accept the situation, but that he needs to tell her the truth or else what they have means nothing.
Asa is upset when he has been brought back to the house with an injured ankle. Kevin tells Asa that he wants the older man to have a check up and agrees even to take him to Texas to see a doctor he likes. Asa switches the subject, asking why Tico was there, and Kevin says he is thinking about a return to Texas.
Adam is reporting to Tico, telling him that Todd had met with Duke Buchanan several months ago, which concerns Tico.
