Once she’s gone, Nikki overhears Victor calling Michael to talk to him about Chelsea and the Sutton Ames lawsuit. Why is his name being dragged into it? They disconnect and Victor tells Nikki about finding Chelsea walking around with a limp. He calls her a phony and the DA needs to work faster to point the finger at her so he can clear Adam’s name. Nikki asks about Ames. Sutton was accused of having someone murdered and hired Amanda Sinclair to represent him. Nikki’s shocked that Amanda will say Victor conspired to commit murder.

At Devon’s, Amanda’s grateful that Devon made her dinner and dessert yesterday when she had a twelve-hour day. She talks about her day and talking with Michael Baldwin, the opposing counsel. Amanda takes Michael’s call while Nate arrives to see Moses. Nate looks uncomfortable seeing Amanda there so early in the morning. She takes off for work and Nate asks how it works with Amanda staying overnight. Devon doesn’t flaunt the relationship but he doesn’t hide it. Nate asks if he’s talked to him about it. He hasn’t. “He’s sixteen. I didn’t think he’d care.” Nate talks about Moses visiting Faith and asks for Devon’s take. Devon thinks it’s great. Why the questions? Nate’s not criticizing his judgment. He apologizes. It’s to do with Elena. That Devon had sex with her and didn’t stay with her stings. Devon asks why he doesn’t work things out with Elena. Nate cares for her but they can’t go back. He’s a little jealous of Demanda. They’re stronger than before. Devon hopes Nate finds what he’s looking for. There’s somebody for everyone. Nate agrees. He grins and is glad they can discuss these things. They talk about coming together over Neil’s passing soon. Malcolm and Olivia are out of the country so they can’t come.
Sharon is there when Faith wakes up at the hospital. She’s glad she’s feeling better. Faith claims Moses freaked out about nothing last night. Sharon tells her kid that Adam and Nick are on their way back. Faith’s still concerned since Adam’s still on the run. Sharon says not to give up. They’ll all rally behind her. Nate tells Sharon later that Faith is on the national donor list and asks how the search is going for a live donor. She lies that she doesn’t want to jinx it by talking about it just yet. She thanks Nate for everything.
Amanda meets Michael at the club. Michael’s surprised to see her working on a murder trial. Amanda says her intention was to get into criminal law. She says Michael wrongfully accused her client. The evidence was pointed toward Billy, he reminds her. He can see she’s prepared but he still doesn’t get why a general counsel is working on Sutton Ames’ case when his whole future is on the line. “How did this particular case fall into your lap?” She won’t say so they talk about the case. She accuses Michael of not wanting to go to court because there is no case. Michael says she can’t win this case. Richard Nealand found payments when working at Newman for Sutton’s campaign for “consulting work,” says Michael. They coincided with Newman real estate projects facing permit issues due to building code violations. After the payments were made, permitting issues disappeared. If Sutton was accepting bribes, that would have sent him to prison. But before they knew it, Richard was dead and his brakes were tampered with. Sutton was coming to his political career and had everything to gain by having Richard silenced. Amanda doesn’t see things that way. “I don’t try my cases in hotel lobbies. I’ll see you in court.” She looks behind Michael and freezes when she sees Victor. He calls this ‘fortuitous timing’. Amanda assures Victor this isn’t personal. It’s about facts. She takes off. Victor calls her ambitious. “She’s posturing,” Michael says. Vic asks if Michael asked Rey to investigate Chelsea. Michael thinks his energy should be spent on Faith. He’s sorry to hear about her. It breaks Victor’s heart but he admits there’s good news. Michael remembers giving Danny Romaloti a kidney donation. It saved his life, giving him a second chance to start over.
Victor sees Devon at Society getting food. They talk about Faith’s health and Devon tells him about the special event coming up for Neil’s passing. Victor is happy to hear. His dad would be proud. Victor brings up Amanda’s new case. Devon doesn’t think Victor needs to be concerned about it. Victor fishes for information, wondering why she’s taking on this case and leaving her good job to focus her energy on this case. Devon thinks Vic should ask Amanda. Victor appreciates his discretion. Devon takes off.
Devon goes to Amanda’s and lets her know to keep her guard up since Victor is fishing for information on the case and how she got on it.
