Mike tells Meg to get out while she can but she defends Paul saying she knows him better than that. Mike gets mad and leaves.

She hurries up to answer the door and finds Meg standing there. She tells Sofie she has to tell the truth. She says she knows Paul didn’t rape her. Sofie tells her that she has no idea what Paul is capable of doing. Meg looks at her cuts and advises her to have them treated. Sofie tells her she wasn’t there so she doesn’t know what happened. She says her feelings for Paul are real and that he is the one that hurt her. Meg tells her that she was hurt and upset and now all she wants to do is get back at Paul.

Paul goes to Barbara and tells her what Sofie is accusing him of.  Barbara is in shock that Sofie would do such a thing. Barbara says she believes him and she knows that he didn’t rape Sofie. Barbara wonders if Sofie could have misunderstood him but he swears to her that nothing happened between them tonight. She tells Paul to focus on Meg and let her take care of Sofie.

Mike goes to see Margo and tells her that he doesn’t think anyone should get away with such a hideous crime. Margo doesn’t understand what is going on and he finally tells her about what Sofie told him. Margo goes to the Lakeview to talk to Sofie and she tells them she didn’t want him to talk to the cops. Margo tells her she understands but the longer she waits the harder it will be for her to prove her case. Sofie refuses to talk to them and Margo tells Mike to let her do this on her own.

When Margo leaves Mike tells Sofie through the door and tells her he didn’t mean to push her. When he starts walking away she opens the door and asks him not to go. Mike tells her that Paul called her delusional and even though she doesn’t like that she still insists on not going to the police. When Mike leaves she thinks back at what he told her that Paul said about her and she gets mad. She digs through her hamper and finds the panties she wore the night she made love with Paul.
