At Gloworm, Genevieve tells Cane that Samantha could not have written the note. Lily comes in as Cane runs outside to look for the girl. Gen grills the waiter, who can't recall anything important. Cane returns and Lily reads the note - she wants to call the police. Cane says they're on their own. He asks Gen if there is something about Samantha's death that she hasn't told him. She insists there's nothing. Cane wonders if there is some sort of cover-up since Caleb wasn't charged with Samantha's death. Gen says she did what Colin told her to afterward. Lily warns Cane about going off on Gen. Cane says she's right. Gen tells him she's as much a victim as he is.
