Tyler is telling Piper that Mark has been following all leads he is able to. There isn't enough evidence for pinning on T- Bone though. They're tracking him to bring him in to question him and Tyler's convinced T- Bone looks more guilty for disappearing. Piper doesn't agree with him. Tyler reminds her that T- Bone threatened her and breathed down the phone before he hung up. She wants T- Bone to be arrested if he did it. It won't change what took place though and going on about it isn't helping. Tyler apologises, Piper doesn't want to hear about it.

Jimmy worries that Kirsha might not talk to him again and Yashvi might not have done it. Amy reminds him he was honest and Kirsha can't blame him forever for that. Plus being honest is best if Yashvi did it. What Jimmy told Amy wasn't the reason for Yashvi being in trouble, Yashvi has a history of doing stupid things.

Karl tells Piper that a nurse will be coming to give Piper a wash. Tyler thinks Piper will get closure once they find T- Bone. Tyler suggests watching a movie, Piper reminds him about the wash. Tyler offers to help and it will be fun with him, Piper tells him there's no fun about the situation. Tyler is sorry and just wants to help her, he'll just stay here.
