Marisa says it was self-defense. Victor has a plan in mind for Marco. "I'm sending you straight to hell." Victor's henchmen are ordered to take him back to the Peruvian prison and if he gives any problems to shoot him. Phyllis hopes he munches on cockroaches. After, Jack and Phyllis thank Marisa. Victor is upset that Marisa didn't tell him she was in contact with Marco. She protests. Victor intones. "Never lie to me." Jack defends Marisa. Victor agrees to give her a chance for her fresh start if she keeps her mouth shut.

He looks forward to giving Dylan his badge soon. He's so proud. After, Paul and Chris talk happily about Dylan joining Paul on the force.
At the hospital, the doctor tells Sharon she's sorry for her loss, but the good news is there's no reason she can't try to conceive again. Sharon sobs.
