Flashback, Edward asks Robert about the people who died in Thailand. Robert blows him off.
Breakfast time at the Bowers family table. Joanna keeps asking questions about Mia’s situation and Sophia gets very upset; she says it’s ‘family business’. Joanna asks if Haverstock is Mia’s father, and is that the reason why Robert won’t speak to him. Robert’s silence confirms the truth.
Flashback, Joanna remembers seeing Haverstock with a fancy lighter that he eventually gave to Vivian.
Julian tells Joanna that before Vivian died they fought about Mia. Vivian wanted to take Mia away. He’s not sure if Sophia knew that, but he says Sophia would’ve went ballistic.
**Joanna finds a picture of Kyle and has Gabe run the license plate number. She follows Sophia to the master bedroom and sees Sophia putting wads of cash in a black bag. Sophia lies and tells Robert that she’s heading to a spin class and she leaves. Joanna follows her.
Julian is UPSET and he tells Edward that Haverstock is Mia’s father. Haverstock was in his 40s and Vivian was only 16. Julian says he’s going to confront Haverstock. Edward tells Robert about Julian’s plans.
Haverstock tells Julian that he deeply loved Vivian, and he was hurt when Robert confronted him about their relationship. He says he ‘tidied’ up the messy Kimberly Yeager situation by hiding the murder weapon- a golf club that had Edward’s fingerprints on it. Julian stills vows to get revenge.
At the same time, Robert tells Edward about the murder weapon that Haverstock is holding, which he’ll release if Robert ever comes after him about sleeping with Vivian. Edward is stunned to learn that he really did kill Kimberly Yeager.
Joanna walks directly behind Sophia and follows her into a dingy building. Sophia meets with a guy named Teo but their conversation isn’t shown, and Joanna is hiding in a stairwell. Sophia walks out of the building and Joanna pretends to be a tenant looking for a pet ferret. Joanna convinces Teo to let her look around in his apartment and she steals his mail. Will delays Sophia when she goes back to the building, and he warns Joanna. When Sophia arrives again, Joanna runs down the stairwell. Sophia is looking down the stairs but it’s not clear if she knows that it’s Joanna.
Kyle and Mia have spent the whole episode hiding out some fancy house. They go to a local store and buy groceries, and on the way out Mia steals a bottle of wine. Bad news for Kyle since he has a lengthy record.
Gabe calls Joanna and says they’ve tracked down Kyle and Mia. Joanna is heading out the door but Julian stops her. She tells him where Kyle and Mia are and he offers to drive out with her.
