Harley tells Gus that she doesn't need to know about his criminal record. Gus, however, informs her that she needs to know. He tells her that when he was 16 he tended to hang out with the wrong crowd and that this one night they were drunk on a roof. There was a disagreement and he defended himself by pushing the guy off the roof, and died. Harley tells him that she is sorry for what happened, but it's in the past, and that she can relate to making bad choices as a teen. She tells him that what is over is over and she's never been more closer to him. After a heart-felt embrace she gets called back to work but their conversation is not over. He stops her as she gets to the door and says he hasn't been fully honest with her. He tells her that it wasn't his fault but he took the wrap for someone else out of loyalty. She proposes that he clear his name but he refuses because if the true person's identity was ever revealed it would destroy that person's life. She understands and leaves for work. Soon after, Gus takes out a CD and looks a woman's picture kept inside it, saying, "I've kept our secret safe,".
