Jack and Sharon fight off the reporters because of the story in the tabloids and then Jack is being questioned by Maggie about Ji Min’s death, only he refused to talk to them until he has his lawyer present. Sharon tells Jack if the police have nothing on him then they must think he knows something that will help him.

Jack gets Katherine to join him in a meeting with Heather to talk about it. He tells Heather that Maggie has asked him to answer some questions about this case but he needs some protection from some media abuse and he will be happy to help the department with the Ji Min case if she can guarantee him that they won’t be charging him with anything to do with the Jabot case. Heather agrees to talk to Maggie and then get back to him. Jack gets a call and they have agreed that if he cooperates completely with them in helping them with Ji Min’s case then they have agreed not to file any charges on him.

Later in a meeting with heather and Maggie Jack is filling them in on the conversations he had with others the night Ji Min was killed. Maggie asks him how he persuaded Ji Min into cancelling his press conference. Jack looks stunned and says he never said he did. Maggie says she was under the understanding that he had so she wants to know how he did it. Jack is quiet. He finally admits he did meet with Ji Min that night and he tells her that he told him that he purchased land his family lived on and threatened to evict them if Ji Min held the press conference. He then turns to Sharon and apologizes because he knew that she didn’t approve of him doing that but he was desperate. They ask him if he had a fight with Ji Min that night and Jack says certainly not. They inform Jack that Ji Min had cuts and evidence on his body proving there was a fight between him and someone the night of his death which surprises Jack and Sharon both. This causes the case to go from an accident to a homicide case.

Maggie and Paul are talking and she tells him with Jack insisting on his lawyer being present to be questioned makes him look like he has something to hide. She gets a call from the lab telling her they found some sort of new evidence on Ji Min’s body that she needs to know about. She rushes over to the lab to find out what it is.

Maggie talks to Jill asking questions about whether Ji Min owned a dog and Jill wants to know why she is asking this. She tells Maggie that Ji Min was highly allergic to dogs, and wants to know if she found out something new. Maggie just tells her she will update her as soon as she can and then leaves the table. Later Maggie tells Paul they found a sample of dog hair on Ji Min’s body and Jack has no idea about it.
