At the Top of the Tower, Jack tells Phyllis he’s glad she stayed away from the memorial. When Jack takes a call, Jill complains about Phyllis not supporting Jack. Jack takes Billy aside and Jill hisses at Phyllis about how obvious it is she and Billy just had sex. She warns Ashley’s getting suspicious too. Nearby, Jack tells Billy he’s glad Phyllis was with him instead of doing something she’d regret. Billy’s expression makes Jack wonder if she already has. Billy reassures him and then takes off, with Jill behind him. Jack informs Phyllis he knows what’s been going on, but won’t discuss it there.

Mariah is certain Dylan will come up empty and warns Sharon about her fears becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. Stitch arrives. Mariah leaves. Sharon guesses the information Stitch has for Dylan is about Adam’s case. Dylan arrives in time to hear her ask Stitch not to help him because going after Victor is like poking a mad dog with a stick. Dylan interrupts. Stitch tells him his forensic results confirm Adam died in the explosion. Dylan questions if he even took it to the lab. Stitch advises him to let it go. After, Dylan argues with Sharon about going after Victor. She shouts at him to think about what they have to lose. Dylan feels Victor can’t hurt them. Sharon says he’s wrong.
