That ball bounced off that guy’s head like nothing I’ve ever seen. You got quite an arm. Lethal. Okay, well, it was my first time playing doubles. But, let’s talk about the previous game. Where I totally wiped the floor with you, thank you very much. That’s because I told you my, my, my shoes are the wrong size. My, my, my toes were cramped.

It’s, it’s, it wasn’t even matched. I’m sure that’s what Djokovic says too. It probably is. Yeah. That shoesie’s crumbed my little toe. I like your joke about some fresh stuff. Ooh. Oh my god, speaking of cramps. What? My leg. Oh. I’m not used to running that fast. Oh my gosh. Here, here, here, here. Let me sort it out for you.

Oh, no, no, no, no, wait a sec. Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on. I’m very gifted. Okay, fine. Come on. Here. That does feel good. Is that, Is that easing up? Mm hmm, it is. And, um, I’m, uh, glad that we did this. Playing pickleball, no work talk. Glad you suggested it. Stick with me, kid.

Well, black book. The one Harris gave us. Thanks. The results came from the crime lab. And? Blood on the cover. They’re processing it further now. Oh my god, our first potential break. That it is. Yeah. Weston needs that book. He needs it to keep cash coming in while he’s on the lam. Unfortunately, I weren’t able to crack the code.

It’s a, it’s a cipher the department’s not used to seeing. Damn. Yeah. Okay, let’s hope that Harris has better luck with his Navy intelligence buddies. Mm hmm. How long have we been friends now? A long time. It’s been a while, yeah? Yeah. I often think back when we were at the convent in Italy. Sharing a room, making mischief.

Oh, do you remember those beds? Oh my god, it was like sleeping on porcupine quills.

Why’d you invite me over here, Kristen? Oh, I just, I thought that we could catch up. Ever. Remember when, chat? Yeah, I’m not buying it. Why don’t you tell me what you really want?

It was the look in Holly’s eyes, Eric, when she told me she hated me. She doesn’t hate you, you know that. She’s just angry, that’s all. I’m just trying to protect her. You know, the thought of her going to that prom and partying until wee hours of the night, it just triggers me into remembering that she I get it.

She almost died. I get it. And I understand why you didn’t want her to go. Well, I wish she understood. She will. Just Just give her some time to cool off. I’m sorry you had a difficult Mother’s Day.

Yeah, I knew it would be. I just, I didn’t think it would end quite like this. My daughter hating me.

Get some rest, my precious little boy. And when you wake, we’ll do tummy time, okay?

Well, this is how it’s always going to be. Daddy working with Nicole. You and me alone. Or is it all going to come crashing down?

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I’m gonna call the lab. Give them a nudge. You know what they say about a washed pot?

Hmm, you’re right. They’ll call when they have something. They will. Soon. Okay. And speaking for myself, I mean, after going through all of these, I am even more motivated to bring Clyde Weston and Goldman to justice. And what are these? Cold cases. Just boxes and files, just covered in dust. You know, some of these go back decades.

You know, and one day when you and I are gone from the force, I don’t want Clyde Weston to be found as a cold case by some rookie cop wondering why we dropped the ball. So you got them, the

DNA results. I don’t need to ask what they were. I know what the results are. It’s exactly what I told you they’d be. You weren’t lying. Not this time anyway. Nicole is that boy’s mother and Eric his father. Now the question is, now that you know the truth, what are you going to do about it? Who

is this guy? You were supposed to be here 20 minutes ago. Oh, I don’t know. Maybe we should try again later? Try again later, he doesn’t even have a phone. Oh, all right, well then maybe we should go back to

Maybe that’s him. Sir, you okay down there? I mean, is he Yeah, yeah, yeah, he’s, yeah, he’s breathing. Hey. Hey. Ah, he reeks of booze. Maybe he’s sleeping off a bender. Sir? Sir?

What I really want? Do I always have to have an ulterior motive? Well, come on. Kristen, it’s a little suspicious you inviting me over here out of the blue for some carrot sticks and hummus.

Okay. Okay, you’re right. You’re right, Eve. I need your help. What kind of help? I need, Ava, I need some information. Information about what? The murder of Leshaun. Do you often peruse cold cases? Like, uh, Javi? Well, it’s slow, I do. Slow? Yeah. Is it ever slow? There are some quiet moments. And personally, I hate when a case can’t be cracked.

I mean, just, just knowing how hard it is on the families of the victims. You know, not having any answers, closure. That could really eat away at you for years.

What’s eating away at you now? Bobby.

Mmm, so I think the veggie burger is new on the menu, and also the shepherd’s pie. You know what? I’m feeling, uh, I’m feeling like I’m gonna go classic. I’m gonna go with, uh, with a hot dog. You’re gonna, you’re gonna order the hot dog? Is there something funny about that, that I’m missing? Oh, it just, it just reminds me of our first first date.

Back in Seattle, remember? It was raining. We were taking a little stroll. We were sharing that broken umbrella. And then you saw that vendor outside. With the, with the hot dogs floating around in the greasy water. Oh, oh my god. And you ordered two. That was so disgusting. I remember that. I was sick for so long.

It was like three days of me watching old reruns of the World Series games and barfing literally every 15 minutes. Yeah. Wow. Yeah, that’s exactly what you did. Yeah. On that note, I think I’m going to go with veggie burger. Wait, you know what? I think I’m gonna get the hot dog. With ketchup. With ketchup?

What do you mean with ketchup? What do you mean? What do I mean? I mean that it is practically illegal in Chicago and surrounding areas to get ketchup on your hot dog. Fine. Fine? I will risk being arrested then. Wow. Wow. True rebel, huh? You know how badly I wanted to kiss you on the first date in Seattle. I was kicking myself when it ended.

I just, I thought it was too soon.

Honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t even know if it’s Even quite sunk in yet. Though, I am fascinated, Sloan. How did you pull this off? I mean, it’s no easy task. Taking a mother’s newborn baby. Faking said baby’s death so you could pass it off as your own adopted child.

I assumed. You had help in this rather ambitious endeavor. No, it was all me. All you? Wow, quite an accomplishment.

Not to excuse what I did or anything, but I was devastated after I had my miscarriage. Eric and I, we wanted to adopt, but, you know, there were complications. Because of my past.

And that’s when by chance or providence, Dimitri von Leuschner showed up at my door. Holding that beautiful little baby that Nicole had just given birth to on the side of the road. He was supposed to take him to the hospital. But he was a fugitive, so

He brought him to me, knowing I was Leia’s lawyer. So he handed me that sweet little angel. To watch over, to bring to the hospital myself. And when I saw that precious little innocent face, I, in that moment, I felt like all the planets had aligned, like I had been given a sign. I had a second chance. I was meant to be a mother, to help Eric raise his child.

So, how did you? Processed the baby through adoption.

I faked the paperwork, took care of everything myself. I’m a lawyer, remember? I know the ins and outs of the system. It’s weak points. And how did Leo find out? Your nephew is a loose cannon. That is how Leo found out. After Dimitri blackmailed me into getting Leo’s charges dropped, he told his devoted boyfriend all about it.

Right before he was sent off to super max

So Dimitri thought That that baby was mine And yet he still chose his weasel lover over family. What a backstabbing son of a Can we not talk about him right now? Can you just what is your plan for Leo?

I don’t get it. We were talking about cold cases and then A cold case that’s eating away at me. It’s Bobby, or more accurately, related to Bobby. How so? Well, when I met him in Seattle, he had asked me if I could help find some information on his mom, since I was a police officer. What happened to his mom? I don’t know.

All I know is that she left when he was a little boy. Hmm. Yeah, um, his father said that she just left the house one day and she never came back. Yeah, it was traumatic for him. I mean, there’d be, there’d be days where we would just be together and we’d be talking and he would just start looking off. And I knew that he was thinking of her.

It haunted him. Even years later. Kristen, other than the fact that Lee was killed in the apartment that I shared with his sister and my son, I know nothing about what happened or who else might have been involved. Hmm. Are you sure about that? It’s just, it’s curious. There were two murders, Lee’s and Gil’s, in the same apartment within days of each other.

Yeah. It’s a coincidence. The police looked into it. They found nothing. Hmm. Well, maybe the police didn’t have enough information. What do you mean? Ava, is there by chance anything you didn’t tell the police? Something you know useful.

Oh, don’t you worry. I’m going to take care of Mr. Stark. Good. When you say you are gonna take care of him, you don’t mean like you’re gonna hurt him, please. No, no, no, no, no, no. We’re just going to take a lovely drive into the desert where I’m going to dig a hole about. Six feet deep.

I jest. Leo will be fine. EJ, remember what I said. The only way our marriages can survive is for the secret to stay a secret. You already know what is gonna happen if Nicole and Eric find out. They are going to leave us like that. Don’t mind. But my wife is mourning the loss of a child she thinks is dead, who is alive and well, and being mothered by an amoral kidnapper.

Fine. Take, take low blow shots at me. I deserve it. But the truth is, is that Nicole is going through the stage of the grieving process right now called acceptance. Why mess with that? Why open a wound? Why open? Are you kidding me? This would be the happiest news she has received in her entire life. She would be ecstatic over the moon.

What kind of amoral bastard would I be to keep the news from her? That her baby boy is not dead after all. Well, if you don’t keep the news from her, then she and Eric will go and live happily ever after. So, in simpler terms, EJ, if you suddenly gain a conscience, then your wife will dump you and never look back.

Get it? So, what’s best for everybody, if this just Remains our little secret. You go live happily with Nicole. I raise my son with Eric. Everybody wins.

Hot mess. Zaddy? Are you putting me to bed again? It’s like deja vu. Putting him to bed again? I found him drunk the other night and helped him get back to bed. For that, I am so, so thankful. Yeah. So much so that I woke up the next day, I took the bull by the horns, and I got Oh, an application to become a licensed dental hygienist.

I’m just kidding. I started drinking again because Hair of the frog. No, that’s not right. Hair of the dog. No. Hair of the dog. Leo, what is going on? Why are you doing this to yourself?

You mean why am I circling the drain? Well, Nicole, it’s because the love of my life sent me a Dear John letter and has rendered my very tender heart broken beyond repair. Oh, Leo, your heart will repair itself eventually, and one day you are going to meet someone new. Someone who’s right for you and things will get better, I promise.

Did things get better for the two of you? It did. It did. Yes, it did. And now we’re both happily married and feeling fulfilled in our lives, right?

Sure, Jan. Whatever you two lovebirds say. I

love Nicole. She’s a wonderful and caring person. She deserves to know. But I don’t want to lose her. Perhaps as a compromise.

A compromise? I can take the baby and tell Nicole that’s her son. And mine. At least that way she’ll be raising her child. Oh, EJ, do you really want to be raising Eric’s son? That boy is going to grow up, he’s going to look like Eric. Sound like Eric. No, you’re right, I don’t want that. Of course you don’t, EJ.

Please let sleeping dogs lie. It’s just the most sane solution that we have here. It’s best for you, for me, for little Tude. It’s the best solution we have. Is it the best and most sane solution for Nicole and Jude?

I will say this one more time and I really hope that it registers with you. If the truth ever gets out to Eric and Nicole, there is nothing, nothing stopping them from being together. Ah. EJ.

That’s my little boy, Nero. I’ve raised him since he was born.

I love him with all my heart.

Please don’t uproot him from the only family he’s ever known.

It’s like, every time, every time, I try to do the right thing, it ends up being the wrong thing. So maybe if I try to do the wrong thing, it would be the right thing. Wait, what do you mean? I mean, Look, my heart is in the right place, I swear. Like, um, For instance, some years ago, I went on a date with this guy who looked nothing like his pictures.

In other words, I was being catfished. So, I excused myself to go to the bathroom. And when I was in the toilet stall, I snuck out the window. Which was the right thing for both of us. But the next day, he sends me a bunch of Expletive laden texts. See what I mean? No, I don’t. I, I just want to help you. You want, you want to help me?

How do you want to help? I want you to be happy. Happier. But I don’t want to hurt you. You’re such a good man. Leo, what, what are you talking about? What, what do you mean you don’t want to, what? But I mean, I don’t want to hurt you. Did EJ not tell you? What are you talking about? No, what? Oh, goodness. Oh, boy.

Oh. Oh, it’s like there’s two of you. Oh, jeez. Oh, did you say something? No, you said something. Who said something? You said What? Leo? What? Hey, Leo, what? Leo. Hey, what was EJ supposed to tell me? Leo. Oh my gosh, damn it. What the hell is he talking about? I don’t know. He probably did the same thing to me yesterday.

He tried to say something about Jude and then he fell asleep. What is going on? Why don’t we leave and let him sleep it off? Yeah.

Ava, please, whatever you tell me, I will keep your name out of it.

Gil came to the apartment with something bistro related. He tried to sexually assault me. I shot him in self-defense. He died in the end. Okay, so. After Gil was out of the picture, Stefan bought the bistro and Clyde used Gabby for leverage to force Stefan to continue to do Gil’s handiwork. Right? I guess.

You guess. Yeah. Listen, Kristen, your brother told the police already that he was working alone with Clyde. We weren’t close. We’re barely acquaintances, so why is he gonna lie to cover for me? Well, that is an intriguing question, isn’t it? I do not like what you are implying, Kristen. You’re implying that I was one of Clyde’s minions.

Hey, hold on, hold on. I’m not implying anything, Ava. You and I are old friends. I’m just trying to help my brother out. Not to mention, you and I are on the same page, are we not?

Well, that’s the most I’ve ever heard you talk about Bobby. At least in an empathetic way. Yeah, well, I guess I have hinted to you a lot about how much I detest what he did to me. Sorry if that got crazy annoying. No, stop. Come on. I’m always here to listen and have your back. Seriously, uh, you two, you and Bobby, you must have had some good times.

You did end up marrying the guy. Yeah, I did. Because when I met him, you know, he was, he was kind and intelligent and incredibly witty. But then I discovered that he just, he wasn’t the man that I thought he was. Yeah. Yeah, I get that. I am just happy that he finally signed the divorce papers and I can move on with my life.

And be with the most wonderful man who I love with all my heart.

Wait a second, you didn’t like that movie? What didn’t you like about it? It was boring. Way too long. Way too long. Come on. Why didn’t you say that at the time? Because you liked it. I didn’t, I didn’t want to insult your, your taste in cinema that early. Wow Wow, too long. It was two hours. Yeah, but it didn’t feel like two hours.

It felt Endless like it like it like it would never end Wow Yeah, yeah come and clean yeah You know, I I never actually thanked you for teaching me how to play that card game. From all those years ago, the one that I was playing here with Thomas and Chad the other night. Oh, yeah. They loved it. Wow. You still have your deck?

Oh, you bet I do. You, uh, interested in a match? Well, I might be a little rusty, but, uh I think I can take you. Really? Because I trounced you the last time. Yeah, but I sort of feel like I’m more prepared this time.

So many memories. I remember everything with you, Steph. Every single moment.

Bobby? Hey!

Who is that?

Everett? Did you hear me? Sorry, what? Do you know her? Who? The woman who just called you Bobby and waved. Oh, that. No, I have no idea who that is. Maybe, I don’t know, somebody back from Seattle or a friend of a friend? Small world, I guess. Yeah, small world.

Is this coffee third wave? Or that slop they serve down at Sweet Pit? It doesn’t matter if you’re a train wreck. Just drink it. It’ll make you feel better.

It’s not bad. Could use a little Irish cream. Oh. EJ, why are you here? You don’t remember letting me in. My God, how many sheets to the wind are you? What happened to Nicole and Eric? Nicole and Eric? They were here with you? Yeah, they were. They were. I remember because privately I wanted Nicole to leave. So that salt and pepper daddy That’s Not right now, Leo.

Okay, you need to tell me why they were visiting you. Why were they visiting me? Yes.

Oh, that’s right. I passed out at the park. I think they brought me back here. But I remember wanting to tell them something. The truth. I wanted to tell them the truth about you. And did you? No, I don’t think we got to that. Thank God. Why are we thanking God? Listen to me, Leo. You don’t have to know why. But I’m telling you, that you are never to tell Eric nor Nicole the truth about Jude, ever.

Do I make myself clear? Why shouldn’t they know? The baby is Eric and Sloan’s. Period. But biologically, he’s

In exchange for a lifetime of your discretion, you know. I’m willing to transfer a very generous amount of money to a bank account of your choosing. Wow. That’s like accidentally drowning after falling off your own yacht kind of money. Mmm. This is what you wanted when you came to my house yesterday, isn’t it?

It could all be yours. But only if you promise not to ask any more questions or utter another syllable about Jude, ever, to anyone.

Alright, I’m sorry. I took your question the wrong way. I’m just a little touchy about Clyde and Gil. Okay, I understand. Alright. And listen, if Gabby really didn’t Kill Lee. She didn’t. Even if she didn’t, and if I could help you find out who really killed Lee, I would. All right. I Lee never caused me any trouble and I happen to think the world of his sister, but honestly, there’s nothing that I can do to help.


Oh, what about this one? 1992, body of a woman, in her early forties, found in the woods, wearing an Argyle sweater. Never identified. No family, no friends, and no colleagues came forward. The news referred to her as, Argyle Sweater Woman. Let me see that. You know.

Commissioner Hernandez. Oh, the results are in. Alright, that’s great. What do you got?

Wait, are you sure?

Okay. Alright, that’s great. Thanks. What? The lab analysis from the black book. The techs were able to get a partial print off of it. Oh my god, whose was it? Clive’s guy. And the blood? Whose, whose DNA was it? Yeah, the blood, it was, uh, it was Lee Shin’s.

Poor Leo. I totally understand what he’s going through. Losing someone you love and wanting to ease the pain and, um, I know you understand that too, so. I do. Thank God that’s behind us. Yeah, thank God. You know what? Yeah. You are such a good friend. And being with you really lifts my spirits. I gotcha. Coffee toast.

Oh, I have two options here. I can be extraordinarily wealthy, someone who uses the word summer as a verb, who yells at his personal assistant, but then very quickly apologizes. Someone who pretends to like skiing. Oh, with the outfits and all the equipment, sitting in some lodge, having a hot chocolate, it’s such a to do.

Or I could be a person of integrity, someone who tells the truth. What will it be then, Leo?


transfer complete. Wise decision.

I hope so. But just remember, if you keep this promise, you will have a wonderful carefree life. All the jet setting, decadence your little heart could desire. But if you break that promise, I will make sure that you don’t have a life. Do we understand each other? We do. I mean, I do understand. Perfect. Good.


Right? It’s truly unbelievable. Alright, Harris. Yeah, we’ll talk soon. What’d he say? Oh, not much. He was busy picking his jaw up off the floor. So you think this means that That my sister didn’t kill Li Xin? I do. It was Gil. It had to be. So how do we prove it? That’s the burning question. Well, don’t you want to at least talk to her?

Why would I? To find out if she knew you from Seattle. Maybe she could Help fill in some blanks for you. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, maybe I will. But, you know, first order of business, I, um, I know that this isn’t a date. It was just, uh, two friends hanging out. But I’m having a really good time. And I was thinking, would you go to dinner?

Um, sure. Great, because I recently discovered this little hole in the wall sushi place in Chicago. You know I love sushi. They have this omakase dish. Um, you know omakase where the chef picks the fish for you? It is next level. Really, really next level. You would love it. Sounds great. Uh, oh, look at the time.

I’ve got to head out and get back to work. Yeah, um, I’ll text you. Yeah, sounds good. See you soon. Yeah, see you soon.

Hi. Again. Right? Hey, Bobby. Um, Sorry to ask you this, but How do we, how do we know each other? When did we, when did we meet? When did we, Two nights ago, right here. Right. Right. Of course. We had a drink, yeah. Of course. Of course we had a drink. And I obviously, I told you my name was Bobby. Yeah. Obviously.

Obviously. Yeah. I think I’m gonna have a lunch somewhere else. Later. Later. Yeah.

Yeah, okay. Okay then. Talk soon. Yeah, I miss you too.

Is everything okay with Harris? Uh, yeah, everything’s fine. It’s just, uh, quite a coincidence that, uh What? Oh, come on, finish your sentence.

Now, it’s just interesting that, um, you invited me over here to talk about Lee and Gil. Mm hmm. And? Listen, you can’t tell anybody about this, okay? Oh. All right, my lips are sealed. All right. Harris just got off of the phone with Rafe regarding some evidence they found at the bistro.

And what the lab found was, um, it was unexpected.

How was it unexpected?

And it proved you’re right about Gabby not being the one who killed Lee.

Good God. But you know who did? Yeah. I do.

I know who did.

Hey, there you are. Oh, hi. I was looking all over for you. I was hoping maybe we could have lunch or something together. Uh, maybe another time. Sorry, it’s just been a really busy morning. Hey, uh, is everything okay? Yeah. Yeah, no, I just, I have a lot of homework and stuff to catch up on, so I’m kind of stressed.

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Same. It just, it seems like maybe there’s something else going on, or

Fine. Tate, I’ve been really embarrassed you saw that huge fight between my mom and I earlier. Embarrassed? Why would you be embarrassed? No, I, I just, I hated seeing you so upset and not being able to do anything about it. Have you had any luck changing your mind? No. My controlling mother has decided I most likely am going to do drugs and die if I’m not careful.
