In the Crimson offices, Nina tells Jax about her mom’s attempts to kill her and how she’s always wanted to believe her own baby has survived. Her instincts tell her that her daughter is still out there somewhere. She shows him her half-heart necklace and he offers to get someone to dig around. She’s afraid to hope again. Joss shows up and asks her dad for a drive to volleyball. When she’s left alone, Nina looks at the necklace and recalls giving a copy of the other half to Sasha. Meanwhile, Nelle reminds Carly that they had the same father. Carly refuses to accept that and insists she never knew that Frank had a daughter. Nelle says that’s a lie. In a flashback, young Carly tracks down Frank and demands the fourteen years of child support he owed her mother. Nelle was there as a little girl to see this. Back in the present, Nelle claims that Frank wanted them all to spend time together to be sisters and Carly refused. She adds that Carly didn’t care about her and left her behind. Carly insists that’s not true and he didn’t care about her until he thought he could get money out of her. She encourages Nelle not to be like Frank and says she can still build a relationship with Wiley and give him what he needs. This isn’t convincing to Nelle, who continues to insist that everything is Carly’s fault. They recall Nelle gaslighting Carly and getting her committed. “I’ll see you in court sister!” Nelle declares, storming off.
