Jason demands to talk to Spinelli and tells him to run a check on the Balkan, which makes Brenda look nervous.

At Mac's, Robin goes over her plan for Lisa with Maxie. She notes she has to play the part of the scorned wife, which isn't too hard since it's so real. Maxie wonders if she wants to work it out with Patrick and Robin responds she's only worried about her daughter at this point.
