Seconds later, Victor’s crew infiltrates the cabin. With Anna’s mobility at stake, Valentin hands over the much-prized necklace. Victor in turn puts a bullet in Anna!

Gladys interrupted the pair, saw Cody off, and besmirched his character…Jordan and Mac discussed Eileen’s death and resolved to speak to Victor…Portia groused to Elizabeth and Finn about her and Trina’s estrangement; they both assure her that they’d soon get back to getting along with each other.

Blaze backs up Brook Lynn’s claims. Dante escorts Linc from the building and charges him with creating a public disturbance. Gladys takes the opportunity provided by the scene to slip away.
