Tony explains to Carmen that he was just looking out for the family, and that when he was mad at her before he wasn’t really mad at her, but taking his frustrations out on her. He says that he doesn’t think she shot Danny, and she believes him.

Gus stops by the Bauer’s house to tell them that Danny is dead, and Ed answers the door. Ed tells him that he knows that Danny is alive, because he treated him.

Rick walks Bill in, and Michelle tells him that he can go, because she is fine. He says he doesn’t have anywhere he needs to be. Michelle tells him that Danny chose to go back to that family, and leave her and Robbie, so he got what was coming to him. She goes to reach for a hot pot and burns her hand. Bill helps her to rinse it under some cold water, and she says that she can’t feel anything because she is so numb.

Gus is meeting with Tony at Infierno. Tony wants to help Gus, but Gus turns him down. Gus tells Tony to watch his back, because the more marbles Carmen loses the more dangerous she’ll get. Why are Gus and Tony meeting at Infierno? Isn’t Carmen still there? I thought Gus had to go to the morgue? Whatever.

Lizzie walks into the “den of iniquity” and Alexandra asks Lizzie what happened between Olivia and Beth. Lizzie tells her that they use to be friends, but that things got weird between them. She tells Alexandra that Beth thought Olivia was the one who had the diary published, but that the publisher told her that she had been the one who had it published while she was Lorelei. Alexandra finds that to be peculiar, and sets up a meeting with the publisher who published Lorelei’s Diary.

Beth can’t believe that Phillip invited her and Bill to dinner. He tells her that if Bill means that much to her, and vice versa, that they will attend. Beth says, “Nothing could keep us away.”

Michelle thanks Bill for being there for her, and he tells her that he isn’t going anywhere.

He tells her that since Danny is gone she is in no way connected to their family anymore, and that she should permanently stay away from them. He leaves, and Carmen decides that she wants to see Danny’s body too.
