John demands that Hugh give him answers, as Spencer walks out of the courtroom.

Hugh and John are in Hugh's office, where Hugh tells John that he found out that Spencer is his father, that things are now going to become more complicated. John questions what he plans to do, and Hugh says he'll start by trying not to hate himself for having Spencer as a father. John says he's nothing like Spencer, that they need to find the gun that was used to kill his father. John goes one step further, asks Hugh if they get a conviction, will he have trouble asking the judge to give Spencer the death penalty? Hugh replies, "Not for a minute!" Hugh's phone rings, he looks to John letting him know that Spencer will soon be leaving the building. They both leave, planning to follow Spencer, hoping he'll lead them to the gun that killed John's father.

Outside Bo's office, Spencer thanks Hugh for not arguing his bail. Hugh stares at Spencer When Spencer asks him what he's staring at, Hugh says he's looking looking to see if there's a trace of him in Spencer.
