Michael is talking to Lowell at the warehouse telling him he is going to come with him and turn himself in to the DA but Lowell tells him he is not going back unless he thinks he can knock him out and drag him there, he needs to back away from him now.

Michael says he quits and it is his duty to report him if he thinks there is danger. Lowell asks who is in danger. Michael answers Eden, that’s who.

Frank tells Heather that he wrote the confession. He said he wasn’t paid a dime to write it. Heather warns him that if he was intimidated at all she can protect him. He accuses her of wanting him to say he lied about it because she wants to get her boyfriend off the hook. She denies it. He reminds her of the time she saw them at the coffee house, he says that is where Adam asked him to forge the diary. He asks her if she really thinks he is an investment banker. He stands and tells her if she needs anything else she will know where to find him as he goes back to his cell.

Victor goes to Heather who says she has somewhere else to be right then. He tells her he doesn’t give damn.

He refused so now Adam has made his own bed.

Lowell says he doesn’t think he can hurt Eden like this. He says he is going to walk out that door and keep his mouth shut for him and Eden.

Adam goes to Heather’s office ready to surprise her about the wedding plans when he sees something is wrong. She tells him she is going to give him one last chance to tell her where he got that diary. When he lies again she snaps that it is over. He doesn’t understand until she throws the confession to him. He asks her to please try to understand. All the evidence suggests that Victor went to Mexico to kill Palin. Adam tells her he did it for them. He tells her she is all he has.
