Sam says he likely drifted down shore, and Spin counters by pointing out the entire shoreline was checked and cleared by the Coast Guard. Sam doesn't care and knows Jason is alive. She explains that she’s been researching the currents, and Spin agrees to help follow the clues.

Anna asks for the recording of Bernie’s message, so Sam heads off to get it. Dante can see Sam is in denial, and Anna understands what she's going through.
Starr is angry at Trey for not signing the commitment papers. She says it’s hard to see Connie everyday, knowing she killed her family. She asks for his help in putting Connie away.
