Justin went to the judge and told him about Gwen’s recording. He demanded that he let Xander and Bonnie out or he would go to Jack with the recording. Philip told Gabi about Jake’s past as a hitman. He gave her the file that Ava gave him about Jake. She didn’t want to believe it. He thought she would feel that way so he told her about the witness who saw Jake dump a body. Ava talked to Jake about Gabi. She didn’t understand why hated her so much. She thought Jake should be worried because she was focused on him and not her. They talked about what happened with the mob families. Philip continued to tell Gabi about what Jake did to the man who died. She wanted to know how he found out so much information about the mob. She realized that Ava was the one who told him about it. Justin went to see Xander. Xander wondered if he told the judge about the recording. Xander wondered if he was able to get him out of jail. Justin said it didn’t exactly happen that way. Melinda walked in the room and said Justin was busted for blackmailing a judge.
Melinda told Justin, Xander and Gwen that the judge was uncomfortable with Gwen’s offer. Melinda suggested that he have a recording device of his own. She played the recording.

Justin wanted Melinda to hear him out before she arrested him. She was shocked because she thought he was one of the good guys. Xander said he is one of the good guys.
