At Sharon’s house, she tells Rey the 911 call must have been a pocket dial. Rey’s unconvinced. Sharon accuses him of trying to change the subject because he’s decided coming over there tonight was a mistake. He continues to question her, wondering if someone else at Victoria’s could have used her phone. Talk turns to Nikki’s confession. Sharon can’t believe he’s taking it seriously. Rey admits her story has holes, but so does Sharon’s. She wonders if his proclamation of love was emotional manipulation. Rey says the case and what he feels for her are both real and warns he’ll have to have other officers question her now since he’s personally involved. Sharon agrees to go over it one last time. He learns that Victoria revealed JT’s abuse before going upstairs. He accuses, “You knew JT was there; you saw him, didn’t you?” Rey feels Nikki had to have help burying the body and decides Sharon must be covering for Nick. Rey hammers her until Sharon cracks. “It was self-defence. We had no choice.”
