Natalie wants to know why Michael is so vested in John and Evangeline. Michael assures her that John and Evangeline have hooked up and that they are getting serious.

Evangeline tries to convince him that it may not get that far. Rex assures her that Colson is really gunning for Jen.

Nora informs him that the evidence is so convenient that it makes her believe someone is setting Jen up. Nora asks Daniel to give Bo some time to investigate this. She tells him that Paul is dead.
