Natalie answers her door to Jessica. She isn't in the mood for another go-round. Jessica holds Liam's paternity results behind her back. She wants to talk and insists on doing it now. If she sleeps on it, Jessica might never go through with it. Natalie lets her in. Liam wakes up. Natalie gathers him and states that he misses his dad. Jessica wonders if Liam ever gets confused, considering he thought John was his dad before Brody. Natalie takes offense and demands to know why Jessica is there. She apologizes for her negative comments. Natalie does too, especially her comment about Mitch. Natalie knows blood doesn't mean family. "Except it does," Jessica replies. She thinks everyone should know the truth about where they came from. Jessica takes out Liam's paternity results and says, "If there's any truth to this… I found this." The phone interrupts. Natalie's called into work and allows Jessica to stay with Liam. After Natalie leaves, Jessica picks up Liam, noting he could be John's son, and asks, "What am I going to do?" If the test is real, Brody will lose his family. Natalie will run back to John and have everything she ever wanted. If Jessica keeps the secret, she's no better than Clint, who created this whole mess to begin with. No matter what Jessica does, someone will get hurt.

After John leaves with Tomas, Natalie arrives. She fills Brody in on her conversation with Jessica, who's watching Liam. Natalie doesn't trust that Jessica's completely sorry but knows she'd never hurt Liam. Natalie collects evidence from the crime scene, hoping to back up John's belief that Tomas is lying. She sees a blood stain on the wall. Brody verifies that Tomas wasn't shot. From the position of the stain, it couldn't be Irene's.
