Jen insists he is telling the truth. Eli suggests if he hears from her urge her to turn herself in. JJ tells them to go to hell cos she would get deported … Haley cries to Kayla she knows no one in China and God knows what will happen … Claire seems smug about Haley facing deportation. Tripp counters how would Claire feel if it happened to her! She gets sanctimonious about the law and he suggests that is the pot calling the kettle black. Claire gets testy … Ciara blames Clyde for the downfall of his kids. Ben recalls how he imagined Clyde ordering him to hurt her. She points out then he had his prescription filled. Alas Ben remains tormented by the belief that he could have been the first fire starter. Jordan has lost her mind and he feels too high risk to be around anyone. He has to go away. Ciara begs him to stop saying that. He needs her. He shakes his head, lamenting she was his life and the only one he could count on besides Jordan. But what if he tried to kill Ciara too? She confesses she was afraid of him once upon a time but she believed in him with all her heart and still deeply does …

Eve starts to call campaign headquarters to get him in, as long as it is what he wants. Jack considers, drawn to the allure of something he understands, something that will give his lost life meaning …

His ruthless side reasons they are a hell of a team … Haley ignores a call from JJ, who leaves a message warning the cops are looking for her. He wants to help.
