Anna suspects Johnny, Heather has a scoop, and Steve confronts Jason.
At work, Heather presents Todd with a scoop – a picture of John and Sam kissing. The tryst will make for good copy. He would love to stick it to McBain. The woman he is cheating on is his niece. Not his favorite, but family nonetheless. They will stick it to him another way. Sam is off limits and he wants Heather to dig up dirt on someone else. He knows a guy - Johnny. Todd does not trust his talk of redemption. The ones who scream the loudest have the biggest skeletons. They need to find his. If Johnny has a secret, Heather will find it. She thinks they are a great team.
At the studio Johnny asks Starr if she needs to talk. She admits Michael is on her mind. They tried to be friends but last night they kissed. She is worried it is too soon. She can’t handle loving someone and having them ripped away from her. Johnny insists they deserve to be happy. Todd doesn’t want her hanging out with Michael. Johnny doesn’t think Todd wants anyone talking to Starr. Todd came to see him and offered to buy the contract. She can’t believe it. Johnny wants her to be happy, and if Michael can give that to her, he is happy for her.
At the station, Anna and Delores talk about the body. Heather was fixated with Luke and would move the body to protect him. Anna thinks Johnny’s motives have been long overlooked. He was the first to report the disappearance, supplied Delores with info and had Anthony’s phone with the text from Tracy. Time to rattle his cage. Anna calls Johnny and asks him to come to the station. He arrives and she tells him they found the body buried in the woods. Johnny hopes Luke was arrested since he shot Anthony. Anna never said he was shot. They do need answers from another suspect – Heather. Johnny leaves and Delores tells him she overheard Anna say she had evidence against another man.
Heather installs a camera in Johnny’s office.
Starr visits Todd at his office, mad about him butting into her life. Her album has nothing to do with him. She just wants him to be happy for her. He insists on details about the debut so he can promote it in the paper. He also promises not to touch Johnny.
At the dock, Jason pulls off his wedding ring. After his jog, Michael sits nearby and remembers the kiss. He sees Jason and tells him he took Starr to the barbecue. It was a big night for fireworks. Jason agrees – for a lot of people. Michael assures Jason he is taking it slow but Jason thinks he could save himself a lot of pain if he does not get involved. He walked in on Sam and McBain kissing, right here. He can’t get it out of his head. A part of him had still held out hope they could be together but not anymore. Michael insists they get out of there. Starr calls Michael and Jason tells him to go meet her, but to be careful.
Sam pulls off her ring at home when Kristina comes in. Sam is not sure she should be wearing it. Kristina thinks Jason could be helping Sam with her grief, but things have changed. She kissed John McBain. They were upset and drinking. But he did not do anything she did not want him to do. The Jason she loved, she has not seen in a long time. Kristina begs her to put her ring on and she does. She won’t rule out a reconciliation today.
At Kelly’s Liz calls Jason to tell him she is there for her and to not worry about the kiss. Steve overhears and is not happy. She insists it was not a real kiss. Jason is going through a difficult situation and she wanted to be there for him. He does not want her to get hurt but she insists she is fine. He and Olivia had a blowout about his mother. The night of the storm, she borrowed Olivia’s car. Steve insists she was just trying to meet up with a guy online. He needs to help her find a better guy than that. Steve leaves as Jason walks in. Steve does not want him kissing his sister. Sam overhears.
Starr and Michael meet at the dock and kiss. She tells him Todd tried to buy Johnny out. He has no boundaries or morals and does not listen to anyone. He said he would stay away from Johnny but she does not believe him.
Heather comes back to the office and shows Todd the camera set up in Johnny’s office. Todd thinks Heather has outdone herself. Anna arrives with some cops and wants Heather to come to the station and answer some questions. Her purse is left behind with a paper sticking out of it.
