Ryan tells Ava at her place that he killed Kiki. She is confused, and he explains that he encouraged her to explore her feelings for revenge, so in a sense he killed the chance for her and Kiki to repair their relationship before her death. He believes she needs to forgive herself because she didn’t kill her daughter, but Ava doesn’t think she has the strength to do that. He promises not to leave her side until she does. Later, Chase and Jordan arrive to question Ava. She’s furious that they suspect her. Ryan urges her to answer the questions, so they can move on with the investigation. Ava details the events of her day, and Ryan explains he was with Ava all night and she didn’t want to say so because she was being sensitive of Laura. Chase and Jordan leave, and Ava knows Ryan just lied because he wasn’t with her all night. He did it for her, but she doesn’t know why he’d take such a risk. He is sure she is innocent and believes in her. She thanks him.
Sonny runs into Margaux in the cemetery. She overheard him talking to Morgan and realizes he does have a heart after all. He asks why she didn’t have her mother arrested.

Sonny admits to making poor choices in the name of vengeance, so it’s good she got off that road. She doesn’t understand how he can be such a ruthless bastard and yet so feeling. Sonny states one can still be ruthless and have a soul. He notices her shivering and lends her his scarf before departing. Later, Margaux tells her dad she loves him, and it’s time to let her vendetta go.

Griffin cries he’s been so busy defending himself that he hasn’t processed that Kiki is dead. He hadn’t even said he loved her yet, but he was falling hard for her. He hates that she was alone and afraid in her final moments and asks Sonny to go to church and light a candle for Kiki.
