At SPD, Sonny confesses to murdering Deimos. Adrienne, JJ and Paul try to get him to stay quiet but Raines takes Sonny and Justin into the interrogation room. Raines thinks Sonny wants to get his cousin off the hook or maybe Justin told him the confession was a good way to muddy the waters for the DA. Sonny says that’s not true. He thinks he’s the killer and explains what he recalls. Justin says there were no prints on the knife. There’s no case! Raines goes to call Trask to confirm what none of the other cops seem to get. Outside, some cop talks to the waiter that was at the party. The man stares at Sonny, remembering something. Meanwhile, Raines returns and confirms that since Sonny doesn’t recall murdering Deimos he can go. Back outside, the waiter recognizes Sonny. The cop pulls Raines out of interrogation and the waiter tells the Lieutenant that he saw Sonny leaning over Deimos’ dead body saying, “You got what you deserved, finally.” Raines has to arrest Sonny.

Steve and Kayla stop at the park and Steve explains that he wants to try to get Anjelica on the next flight to New York City.
