Meanwhile, at the roadhouse, Franco (Roger Howarth) finds a picture on social media of Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) drinking with Tom Baker the night of his murder. Scott (Kin Shriner) says it doesn’t prove anything. but that there are a lot of questions. Franco is wondering why Alexis is coming around to the bar, so he goes to look for some answers.

Over at Alexis’ house, while freaking out, Alexis confesses to Julian that she killed Tom Baker. Julian asks her what happened, while trying to keep her calm. She says I asked you not to move in, but you did it anyway.  She says, “You have all this leverage. I left Ava’s to have one more night of freedom, before I had to be your nurse. She says she had to get away so she ended up at that bar and Tom was there. It wasn’t the first time that I met him. But when she met him before she didn’t know he was the one that raped Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst). He came onto Alexis, she rejected him, but he followed her. She ended up in a alley, and he was there. She told him to leave her alone. She remembers screaming. Tom was holding the knife at her but managed to get away from him. Alexis tells Julian she doesn’t remember the complete details of what happened. Alexis informs Julian that the police are looking at Franco as a suspect. Julian points out that she might not have killed him. It could’ve been Franco. Franco knocks on the door. Julian hides, and Alexis let’s Franco in. Franco tells her that he is there to talk about Tom Baker, but she pretends she doesn’t know Tom. Franco tells her he is in a bind with the police and asks for her help. She says she’s not practicing law and advises him to get Scott’s help. I’m not asking you for your professional services, Franco says, as he makes a reference to her drinking. He wants Alexis to tell the police that he wasn’t with Tom Baker that night. Once again she denies that she knows him. Franco shows Alexis the photo of her and Tom. She looks stunned. Franco asks if she could come forward on his behalf. Alexis tells him “I don’t know him; you had that photoshopped.” Franco tells her is time stamped, and she tells him to leave. He leaves. Julian comes out from hiding as Alexis is once again freaking out, saying it’s all over, while Julian says it’s far from over. Alexis says it’s all over because Franco has a picture of her and Tom Baker on the night of his murder. Franco’s going to the police with it. Julian tries to reassure her that only proves she crossed paths with Tom and says Franco’s just fishing to she what he can find out. Alexis is still freaking out and can’t think straight. Julian is still trying to reassure her that she can fight this. Julian says he believes in her, but she has to get sober to fight this.

Sam Fills In Jason and Curtis

Later, Jason and Curtis attempt to recover from the fire. Curtis feels that there is enough evidence to take to Jordan. Jason doesn’t want to get the cops involved until they find out who’s Julian and Rudge’s boss. They don’t know who the woman is and who her contacts are, which could include the police force. Curtis feels that it doesn’t make any sense to do this alone. Curtis is annoyed with Jason because the situation is getting dangerous, so he leaves as Sam arrives. Jason wants to know if she found out anything at Ava’s. She says didn’t but that Julian has moved out. Sam proceeds to tell Jason that she tried to rattle Ava to get information out of her but that she was unsuccessful. But she still senses that Ava is hiding something.
