Claire reminds Betty that she had Faye’s brake lines cut, that she followed her for 18 miles and then she watched her crash and burn. Gabe takes this as a sign that he needs to leave, but Betty tries to play it off as a game. Betty goes upstairs to get the card and leaves the two of them alone.

Alexis is shocked when he tells her that Claire is the one that killed Faye and that she has just put their mother in prison! A loud knock at the door suddenly comes as Ignacio is in the kitchen. Claire opens the door and finds Constance there accusing her of being the one that is stealing her man. The two of them get into a shoving match until Ignacio and Gabe come between them.

She tells him that she will now know where he is at every minute of every day! Betty rushes downstairs to see what is going on. Gabe tells her that it is obvious that she still has feelings for Henry and that he is leaving.

Claire calls the police and turns herself in for murdering Faye. The cops swarm the house and take Claire into custody. Another package arrives for Amanda.
