Jack tries to make Lucy realize that Ali couldn't have hurt Kevin. Lucy is worried that something happened to Kevin. Mac asks Ali what she and Kevin talked about, and Ali answers that he was upset that she opened the shop without telling him. But Ali had swears that she agreed to do everything Kevin asked her to do. When she went to get a box to put the candles in, he vanished. Mac gets frustrated with Ali, and finally Lucy pulls him away from her. Lucy knows how Mac feels, and maybe he's too close and should have someone else question Ali. Jack goes to Ali and they hug. He heard about Kevin and offers to help her find a lawyer. As Ali asks why she needs a lawyer, Mac finds the pitchfork. Ali claims that she forgot to tell them about it.

Lucy tries to convince herself that Kevin will come home, and she begs Mac to say it for her, but he can't. All Mac can do is remind Lucy that Kevin hasn't been missing that long.

Lucy tries to stop Livvie from getting upset, but Livvie attacks Ali. As Jack holds her back, Livvie accuses Ali of killing Kevin.
