Carly sees that it was Parker that shot Sam. He tells her he wished they had believed him before when he tried to warn them. He says now what are they going to do. She tells him they will get through this, but the first thing she has to do is call his Dad. Parker says no, please don’t call him. He says his Dad told him to never touch that gun. He says he will be so mad at him. Carly tells him there is a man dead here, they can’t just let this go. She tells Parker that his Dad will not be mad and he will believe them when they tell him what happened. She says Jack will know what to do and they can trust him so Parker agrees to let her call him. She calls Jack and tells him she is with Parker. Jack gets upset but Carly tells him something terrible has happened. She tells him they are at the church and asks him if he can come to them. He says he is on his way.

When he gets there she tells him that Parker stopped Sam from raping her. He says ok they need to get her to the hospital and put out an APB on Sam. Carly tells him that it is probably too late for that. He wants to know what that means. She says Parker shot Sam and she thinks he might be dead. He wants to know where Parker got a gun and Carly says from the farm. She says he knew she was in trouble and he went to Metro to check on her and found Sam on top of her. He says ok he has to make a report on this. Jack says she left the scene of a crime and if they don’t go by the book on this it could make things worse. She says ok, she doesn’t know for sure that Sam is dead so she wants to know if they can at least go back to Metro and see. Jack agrees and says he hopes to God that Sam is still alive.

Margo comes home and tells Tom and Casey about Will and Gwen and what they are going through. Margo suggests to Casey that he calls them, saying they could probably use a friend about now. Casey says no he’s rather not. Margo tells him she wishes her wouldn’t cut himself off from his friends. The doorbell rings and it is Katie. She notices the silence and asks if she interrupted something. Casey says oh no, it is ok, he was just getting another lecture about his life. Katie says she knows the feeling she was just going through one of those herself.

When they arrive at Metro, Jack checks out Sam. He checks for a pulse and doesn’t find one. He calls the station and asks for a forensic crew to come there saying there is a dead man there. Jack says ok let’s go. Carly tells him he didn’t mention Parker, she wants to know can’t they just take him home and keep him out of this. Jack says he is taking Parker in for this. She begs Jack not to turn Parker in. Jack says this is the best thing they can do for Parker. Jack apologizes to Parker for not trusting him before but he says he needs him to be brave for him tonight and hang in there so they can do the right thing here. Parker says ok he can do this. Jack calls Margo and asks her to come to the station and to bring Tom with her. He tells her Parker shot a man and killed him.

At the station Margo questions Parker. Parker gives her the details about what happened. Tom thinks he needs to talk to Carly and Jack before Parker answers any more questions. Parker says he wants to answer the questions so he can get this over with.

He says she said they are professionals that work together and that is all it will ever be. Brad says he is in love with her and its so unfair that it is always Jack in her heart.

Brad recognizes her. She tells the officer about her being Dallas’s cousin and how Brad is Jack Snyder’s brother.
