At Adam’s, Rey searches through the condo with rubber gloves on, while Adam rants. Rey gets dizzy and Adam tells him he doesn’t look so good and to take a break. Rey goes upstairs. Adam asks what Chelsea thinks he’s looking for. She doesn’t blink but in her mind sneers that it’s nerve-wracking, and assumes he feels betrayed. Adam looks at his tablet and reads about Rey’s sickness. When Sharon responded to those texts, she told him Rey was sick. He didn’t think it was that serious. He asks Chelsea what’s going on. Of course, Chels says nothing and so he storms out, and then quietly lets himself inside and watches her stretch and smile to herself. He looks upset and leaves. Rey comes down the stairs with a baggie and asks where Adam is. He tells Chels he’ll send someone to stay with her until he gets back and then rushes off. Later, Chelsea’s up walking around and thinks about how it should have been over for her and Adam after the cabin fire. She’s angry for the time she wasted on him.
Rey returns from the police station and tells Sharon that he searched Adam’s house and a vial of white powder was found in his shaving kit that tested positive for thallium and the missing figurine was in Adam’s car. Sharon’s shocked. He stole it when he planted the poison? Rey says he also found a trey. Did she know it went missing? She says yes but thought it was misplaced. He asks what significance they are. She admits Adam gave them to her. Rey is irked that she set them around the house so she can see them, daily. She denies it. The figuring was a symbol of her strength. The trey she can’t explain. Rey thinks him stealing them was a message to her that he planted the thallium, “And tried to kill me.” Sharon doesn’t know what to say. She’s in shock. Rey says Adam took off in the middle of the search. Where would he go?
