At the hospital, Brad moans to Britt about Lucas and Felix. She doesn't bother faking sympathy and stares at Liz hugging Nik across the hall. When the prince heads for the elevator, Britt tries talking to him but he snubs her and leaves. Britt blames Liz for all of this. She heads straight to the nurse and starts mocking her for being 'thirsty' for a man to rebound with. The women bicker until Diane interrupts. Britt walks off. The lawyer reminds the nurse that they had an appointment to discuss Ric. Liz has decided there is too much evidence against him. Diane tells her it's all circumstantial. Liz still doesn't want to get involved. "This is all about you," Diane declares. She explains that Liz is just repeating what happened with AJ and will regret it. Liz gives in. Meanwhile, Brad gets back to ranting about the Lucas situation to Britt. She tells him neither of them is going to get back the people they love. He assures her that there is still something she can do. She needs to change her tactics if she wants Nik back and that means fighting dirty. It's time to bring 'the Britch' back.
Molly is at Kelly's worrying about her dad. Her mom lists everything Ric is being charged with. Molly is still sure he's innocent but Alexis thinks all of the evidence contradicts that. Her daughter is determined to prove he's innocent and storms off. She runs into TJ outside. He doesn't like her getting close to Ric either. She defends her dad and he hopes Ric isn't like his mom. Molly suggests he give Jordan a chance. Back inside, Alexis is talking to Nikolas about Liz. She accuses him of clearing the way to get her back.
Ric paces in his cell and thinks of Liz. Sonny drops by and says he should have killed him when he had the chance. Ric yells that he is being set up and Sonny is still in danger. Sonny walks out. Later, Molly shows up. He swears that he's innocent. She believes him and promises he will get out. Ric says that leaving her was the worst thing he ever did. Upstairs, Duke startles Anna in her office while she's gloating on the phone about her big bust. She gets off the phone. He tells her about his trip and then wonders why she let Julian out. The cop explains it was part of a deal to get Ric. Duke is not impressed by her choice. "You didn't choose us," he says. He's furious and storms out, bumping into Sonny in the other room. Duke has something urgent to discuss with him. Sonny assures him that Julian 'will get his'. The mobster admits he doubts Ric is his real enemy.
In the park, Julian informs Jordan that he's back at work thanks to their boss. She's confused so he explains that Ric has never been his boss. He explains why he handed in a scapegoat. He's surprised that she's not eager to get back to work. She doubts it's a wise move right now and demands to know who he is really working for. Julian refuses to explain so she refuses to go back to work. "That'll go over about as well as my attempt to retire," he says. She caves. As soon as he walks off, she calls Anna to say they have a problem. They meet up and Jordan recaps what happened with Julian. This means she has to keep her cover and can't tell TJ the truth. Moments later, TJ calls.
Anna returns to the station to visit Ric in his cell.
