At the apartment, EJ lays into Will about his lack of ethics. "You're a disgusting little snake." Will shows him the door but EJ makes himself comfortable and crows about the damage his article cost his family. He reminds Will that Lucas spent time in jail for a crime he committed in order to protect him. He brings up the lengths Lucas and Sami went to in order to keep him from going to jail and being separated from Arianna. Will doesn't think it's comparable. He tells EJ that Sami gave Zoe Abigail's name - not him. "She's lying, deceitful and vindictive." He calls EJ as crazy as she is. "You've been doing this knife dance for so long that you think it's normal. Apparently you think it's love." EJ wants to discuss consequences of the article. Will says it's not life and death. EJ's appalled. He didn't even consider his siblings. Will the accolades for the article be worth the price he'll have to pay?
