The man who witnessed Craig's hit and run comes into the station to make a statement. He informs Jack that a tall sixteen year old boy on a bike helped Craig after the hit and run.
Craig stops by the station and Jack informs him he knows about the hit and run. Jack thinks it is suspicious that Craig did not mention it at dinner the night before. Craig claims he is responsible for the accident because he did not look where he was going. Jack claims his gut is telling him something is wrong. Craig retorts to take an antacid. Jack informs Craig of the witness, who described Carly's car as the one who hit him. Craig demands to sign off on the statement and leaves.
Carly rushes home and downs her new booze. Craig stops by to tell her that Jack is onto them! Carly wonders what she should do, and Craig admits she should tell Jack the truth. Carly thinks he is crazy, but Craig knows Jack won't give up. Craig thinks lying to Jack will be too stressful on her and drive her to drink again.

Jack arrives at Carly's house and tells her that he knows what happened. Carly admits the truth. Jack asks if she understands the damage she has done to Parker. Carly claims she is not drinking anymore, but Jack wants her to take a breathalyzer test right there! Craig tries to cover for Carly, but Jack angrily tells her his children are at risk. Craig tells Jack he witnessed Carly throw out all her alcohol and he should search the house for alcohol himself. Jack agrees to take her word, but she must go the distance. He offers to close the book on the hit and run. Carly promises him he won't be sorry.
Casey chases Alison into Old Town. He begs her to stand by him. She tells him she does not agree with him, and asks that he try to get along with Riley. Casey agrees to try now that Riley knows he can't come between him and his mom.
Margo returns home and offers to reimburse Riley for his watch. She admits that his presence is hurting her son and asks him to leave. Riley thinks this will make Casey's day. Margo reminds him that Casey is her son and she has to side with him. She offers to help him find another place to stay. Margo gets teary and tells him that he is her last connection to Adam. Riley assures her she won't lose him.
Liberty returns to Al's. She tells Parker he has to let her go because she can't explain herself every time she spends time with someone new. She sadly asks him to pretend they do not know one another!
Parker stops by the station to find out what happened with Carly. Jack informs him that he is letting the hit and run go, but he needs him to be straight with him if he catches Carly drinking again. Parker thinks Carly is really never going to touch another drink.
Carly thanks Craig for helping her. Craig is proud of her for proving that she can do whatever she sets her mind to. Carly wants to work on her sketches and Craig leaves her to work her magic.
