At the television studio, Harley and Gus make sure everything is safe and secure for Reva's live show. Harley tells Gus she is sorry they had to postpone the trip to Germany, because she is sure he would much rather be gathering information on his mother. Gus says it's okay, the only thing that is important is catching Reva's stalker. Frank talks to the crew about the security measures that they will have to take for the show. He tells everyone to leave the building, and come back in to be searched one more time before the show. Frank tells everyone that the yellow passes are for the specially invited audience. Every member of the audience must show a yellow pass, as well as a picture ID, to get into the show. Frank says the audience must keep the pass with them at all times.

Holly arrives, and, despite protest from the policeman guarding the house ,Reva agrees to talk to her. Holly says she heard about the live show. Reva offers her an invitation. Holly gets very defensive and asks why, so the police can watch their prime suspect? Reva tells Holly that if she is at the show the police will know she isn't the stalker. Holly gets angry and says that she won't be at the show. Holly tears up the invitation .
At the TV studio, Frank supervises, as members of the crew go through the metal detectors and get searched. Harley asks Marah how she is doing. A nervous Marah says she is fine. Tony tells Gus he is Reva's personal bodyguard during the show. He opens his jacket and shows Gus a gun, and asks Gus for permission to carry it into the studio. Gus refuses to allow a gun in the building. Tony tries again by saying that Marah is very nervous, and he promised her that he would take care of Reva. Gus again refuses, and says that if he will hand over the gun he will give him an all access pass. Tony can then go anywhere Reva goes in the building. Tony hands Gus the gun. Harley tells Gus that Marah is really nervous. Gus says of course she is nervous and scared for her mother. He says that he would be nervous and scared, if it were his mother in this situation. Harley again apologizes if this situation is making him think of his mother. Gus puts Tony's gun down and leaves it unattended, while he and Harley go check things out one more time.

Olivia tells Philip that Alan switched her birth control pills for sugar pills.
