In the coffee warehouse, Sonny has Joe Jr. tied up. He knows better than to forget that what you do, you pay for. Now he is finally going to pay for raping Connie. Joe tries to say he was drunk, but that is always his excuse Sonny says. That night he got drunk enough to rape a teenage girl on the floor of her own home. Joe tells him they did have sex, but it was her idea. Sonny chokes Joe and demands he admit what he did so he can die with a clear conscience. If Kate was so innocent, why did she throw her baby away like garbage? Sonny wonders how Joe knows that. Joe is mad that Kate had his kid and left him for dead. If anyone is the victim, it is Joe. Sonny cocks the gun and tells Joe to say goodbye.
Kate gets to work and sees Manning Enterprises has taken over. Todd informs her she has missed a few things while dealing with killing his granddaughter.

She wonders what he will do with the magazine, but he will not publish a non-profitable magazine. She assures him she can get it back on top. He’ll get back with her about her magazine, but not today.
