Antonio deals with a lot of loose ends, Todd and Tea get hot and heavy, and Cole ends up doing the right thing...
Down in the morgue, Bo apologizes to Antonio for his loss then Antonio weeps, "Oh, God, Talia…" Holding Talia close, Antonio blames himself for leaving and says, "I left her alone. I let someone do this to her." Bo comforts Antonio and tells him to blame the person who stabbed her. Though Bo admits that they have a suspect, John, in custody, he says, "We don't think he's our guy."
In jail, after John tells Marty that he doesn't think Todd is the killer, Marty vows to help prove John's innocence. John talks about how Todd could've shot him while he was fighting with Zach, but Marty wants to know why John's defending Todd. John assures her that Todd as the killer doesn't feel right to him then warns Marty to be careful - because the killer is still out there.
After Marty leaves, Antonio appears, and the guard lets him in John's cell. Antonio assures John that he knows he didn't kill Talia, but he begs John to find the person who did - for him - for her. Though Antonio wants to find the killer himself, he has to get Jamie out of Llanview - away from the danger and the memories - then reminds him that John no longer has to follow the rules, as he's not a cop anymore. However, John says he can't do anything locked up. "That's why I'm going to take care of that," Antonio says - just as Bo appears to check in on them. Once Bo's gone, Antonio shakes John's hand, calls the guard then leaves - and John opens his hand and finds the key to his cell! As the guard walks past his cell, John waits till he's out of sight, unlocks the cell then walks out a free man!
Antonio goes back to the morgue, tells Talia to rest in peace, and says that he did what he had to do, then falls apart, holds her close and wonders how he's going to say goodbye.
Upstairs in the courtroom, when Tea runs into Todd, he informs that he's there to get his kids back. After Tea warns Todd that she's John's lawyer, he heads to talk to the judge, but Tea stops him, by grabbing his tie, then the two fall into a passionate kiss! Though they begin to argue again, about each one's motive for the kiss, Todd and Tea let go - and have sex right in the courtroom!
Freshening up after their sex session, Tea warns that Todd will not get his kids back, and Todd promises her, with kisses, that he will. Suddenly, Marty appears and rants at Tea for sleeping with Todd, thinking they're celebrating John being in jail! Marty fires Tea as John's attorney then stomps off - and Todd rushes after her!
Out in the hall, Todd tries to talk to Marty, but she looks at him in disgust then gets into the elevator.
Back in the courtroom, as Tea is left fuming over Todd, someone touches her, and she snaps for Todd to leave her alone! However, a voice says, "Do I look like Todd?" Tea turns around and sees RJ!
Returning to her apartment, Layla grieves in confusion over Talia's death, as Cris tries to comfort her. Just then, Layla remembers the message that she left Talia and feels horrible. "I should not have said that, I need to make it right, I need to see my friend," Layla cries. Though Cris tries to talk her out of it, he agrees to bring Layla to Talia. For the time being, they look at an old DVD on Layla's laptop, and Cris says, "See, she knew that you loved her."
Still at the rehab center, Lola tells Rachel that Cole had Markko take his drug test and explains how they bragged about getting away with it, and Rachel warns that if that's true, Cole will be sent to jail! When Lola doesn't take back what she accused, Cole reminds Lola of what she's done to Markko - and calls her crazy! Lola's visibly upset that Markko thinks she's crazy, and Rachel asks her to leave.
Once alone, Rachel demands the truth from Cole. Though he denies it, when Rachel threatens to issue another drug test, Cole gives her the same excuse about how he took something for the pain at Todd's house, admits that he had help with his drug test then asks, "Are you going to send me to jail?" After Rachel explains how prisons are full of drugs, and Cole would be an addict for the rest of his life, Cole asks, "So, are you turning me in?" and Rachel snaps, "That would be too easy." Rachel reminds Cole of his crimes, especially putting her brother in a wheelchair, then warns that this is his last chance and says, "You will never do another drug again! Are you in?" Cole agrees not to let her down.
When Cole walks out of the room, he pulls out the pill bottle but goes back inside and hands it over to Rachel.
Over at Dorian's, Ray confesses that he's interested in Dorian, causing Dorian to be furious that he's hidden these deep feelings! "Wouldn't it have been simpler to tell me the truth?" she asks, but Ray only apologizes and says he wanted to set an example and help his daughter do the right thing. Over talk of David, Dorian admits that she sent the photo of her and Ray kissing to him, and says that David didn't care, leading Ray to wonder why she sent it to begin with. Suddenly, David appears and says, "I'd like to hear the answer to that myself."
Out in the foyer, as Markko and Langston worry about what Lola's next move will be, Starr arrives to hear the news about how Lola has been hitting on Markko. After Markko leaves, Starr admits to Langston that she talked to Cole and that she believes that there's still something between them.
Outside the mansion, Markko runs into Lola and warns that she better not do anything to hurt Langston, but Lola says, "You're the one who's going down." Lola then goes inside and snaps at Starr and Langston, "You two bonding over what a witch I am? You haven't seen anything yet!"
