Dante arrives at Sonny’s restaurant to see his father. He confronts him over the fact that Michael was right about him abducting and beating Dex. The only reason Dante didn’t arrest Sonny is that Dex covered for him. Dante points out there has been a boundary he’s had to keep between his love for his father and his duty as a cop. Now that’s being blurred. If it was anyone else, he would have pushed Dex to come forward. Sonny insists he’d never ask Dante to cover for him. Dante asks Sonny to be honest about Anna’s escape.
