She confiscates his cellphone, and orders him to apologize to Kevin and Nina. Laura sits Spencer down in private and knows he is hurting, but tells him they need to let the law take its course. This gives Spencer an idea, and he states, “Valentin won’t know what hit him.” Meanwhile, Nina asks Kevin if she is a coward for running out on Valentin when he needs her the most.
