Nicole asks him why he’s really there. Rafe holds out a book and explains that he’s there to give Johnny his book. Surprised, Nicole asks if Sami’s giving up on fighting for Johnny in court. Rafe explains that she isn’t giving up but he thought Johnny would want his book. He excuses himself but before he leaves, he mentions Mia. Rafe asks Nicole how she knows Mia and she explains that they met when she volunteered at a center for troubled teens. Rafe asks if she knows that Mia’s a drug addict but Nicole insists that it’s not true because she goes to meetings. She asks why Rafe cares, and Rafe says it’s because Mia used to baby-sit Grace, and he’s not sure Mia is who she says she is. Rafe asks if she could give him information about the teen center, but Nicole insists it’s confidential. She asks if he thinks Mia’s the cause of Grace’s meningitis. Rafe says that’s not what he thinks, and tells her the real reason why he’s there: Johnny’s court case.
