Beth says that she doesn't have time to argue with her and goes to the dinning room to look for Lizzie. Alexandra goes back to speak to the lab technician. Alexandra tells him there is a bonus in his pay envelope so he can make himself scarce and keep his mouth shut about the real test results. The lab technician says that as far as he is concerned the test results which he gave to Philip are true then he leaves. Alexandra tells herself those results are true because I have decided they are true. Beth comes back from the dinning room because she still can't find Lizzie. Alexandra and Beth continue to argue of Lizzie's need to have therapy. Beth explains that Lizzie has grown up in a world where people have done bad things and not faced the consequences of their actions.

At the Beacon, Alan tells Philip that he wants to have an honest relationship with Gus and he won't try to mold Gus into his image. Philip is very skeptical that Alan won't try to make Gus into his image. Alan explains that ever since he was drugged his perspective on life has changed. Alan admits to Philip that he (Philip) was right about him (Alan) trying to take away his independence in order to mold him (Philip) into his own image.

At Gus and Harley's place, Eden wonders if Harley thinks she is capable of committing the murders. Harley says that she wasn't thinking that but also doesn't think Ben is their murderer. Eden says she doesn't think Ben is the murderer either because if he was she would fell safe with him being in jail. Eden says she is scared and jumps at every noise and that is why she needs Harley's help.

At the Police station, Gus explains to Jeffrey that although Eden is capable of murder these ritualistic murders aren't Eden's style. Jeffrey wants to know how Gus knows that these murders aren't Eden's style. Gus says nothing.
