Rey knew he was being set up and had to run to buy himself time. When he was headed out the door, he looked back, “Chelsea dropped her head and smiled.” She could move. “She was relishing what she had pulled off.” Sharon wonders how she’d break into her house. “She had help,” Adam says, from Chloe. Adam wonders if Chelsea wanted Sharon out of the way. Maybe Chloe showed her the photo of them kissing and it sent her over the edge. Sharon says only Rey’s things were tainted. Adam never knew. It wasn’t in the news. Sharon brings up their kiss. She knows it meant something, the way he kissed her. She brings up the text messages where he said he couldn’t live without her but he didn’t send them. Adam says the kiss was a one-time impulsive act but he never stopped loving Chelsea. He also admits he’d never try to hurt Rey. She believes him. Adam thinks the stroke had more of an impact on Chelsea. Sharon asks him to turn himself in but he can’t. He has to prove Chelsea did this by tricking her into revealing herself. “I’ll need your help.” She tells Sharon to go to her to tell her that she’s helping him. Chelsea will follow her to his hideout and he’ll nab her. Sharon is overwhelmed. Adam asks her not to reveal his location. Especially to Rey. She goes.
