At the station, Kevin asks Paul when he'll get his badge and handcuffs. Paul says he's a computer specialist. Michael bursts in and asks Paul to arrest Carmine. "He tried to kill my son." Michael rants that Carmine gave Fen methamphetamines. Paul needs evidence. All Michael has is Fen's word. Paul says Michael and Fen have a strong motive to get Carmine out of their lives. Michael says he's back with Lauren; he has no motive. Paul agrees to look into it. Kevin wishes his marriage was back on track.

Carmine looks into Fen's hospital room. Lauren spots him and confronts him. Carmine looks confused when she says he's the reason Fen's in the hospital. "You were the one who gave Fen the drugs." Carmine says he tried to warn her that Fen was looking for drugs but she didn't answer her phone. "I didn't do this." Michael and Paul arrive as Carmine appeals to Lauren to believe him. Michael goes ballistic. Carmine protests that Fen got the drugs from someone else. Paul takes him for questioning. Lauren and Michael rejoin Fen. Michael asks Fen if he's certain Carmine supplied the drugs. Fen claims Carmine came looking for him and offered to hook him up. Michael says one way or another he'll pay.

Victor asks about Adam's personal life at the Club. Adam says he's taken his advice. Near the stairs, Adam tells Melanie, "You know what to do." He warns her not to underestimate his father. Melanie joins Victor, and assures him Adam doesn't suspect a thing. When Melanie says some of Adam's funding is coming from Asia, Victor asks what she's being paid to lie. Melanie plays dumb.

Adam says she failed and was out-classed. He dumps her.

Neil and Leslie discuss the blogger at Boulevard. Neil's plan is to ignore them - they might just give up. Leslie's concerned they might step up the attacks instead. Talk turns to Rose's letters. Leslie says she went over them and found something disturbing. She reads a letter that begs Gus not to cut her off. She doesn't care if he's in prison; his letters give her a reason to get out of bed. Leslie clucks that Gus didn't even know she passed away in 2007 in Evanston, and talks about how Gus was trying to make things up to her by naming her in his will. Later, Neil recalls drinking in Evanston.

Nikki says Billy made a compelling pitch to her for a second chance, and explains how Victor interrupted their talk. They discuss Nikki and Billy being addicts.

Victor thinks Billy is a disastrous choice for her.

She points out that he has triggers. He can't respond by being self-destructive. Chloe assures him she's on his side. She acknowledges the serious issues she's had with him in the past, but he's always been there for Delia. Billy thinks if Delia can beat cancer, he can beat this. Delia overhears and asks if he's sick. He says he's going to get better. Later, Kevin appears. He sees Delia and tells Chloe that Michael is back with Lauren, and he got a job at the police station. He did it for her. She says he has to want it for himself.
