Laura bursts into the rehab center and demands to speak with Wyatt. She tells him that she didn't deserve the voice mail he left her.

"You stood me up; you won't return my calls," he says. "Am I right?"

Laura looks helplessly at Jeffery and then admits that Wyatt's accusations are true.

"You told me you weren't seeing anyone," Wyatt continues.

Laura is genuinely surprised at this and says she's not, but Wyatt says that Jeffery saw her with Bradley, a boy who went to their high school. Shocked, Laura turns to Jeffery, who confirms Wyatt's accusation.

"What are you even talking about?" she says. "Bradley has been in Maine with his father. He's been there for years."

Jeffery tries to usher Laura out the door, but she pulls away, telling Wyatt that Jeffery is lying to him.

"He told me that I'm bad for you and I shouldn't see you for a whole year," she says, bursting into tears.

"Are you really going to lie like this?" Jeffery asks her.

Wyatt looks despairingly from Laura to Jeffery and leaves the room.

Laura then turns on Jeffery. "I don't know what your problem is. You know that I love him, and I don't know why you're trying to sabotage this, but you're a mean person. You're a mean, cruel person, and I don't want you to ever speak to me ever again. You got that? Get it through your head!" She spits at him and storms out.

At the county jail, Hanna and Benny are anxiously waiting for Veronica to arrive, who is late. Veronica finally enters and tells Benny that he can go home. Thrilled, Hanna and Benny thank Veronica.

"Is this bail?" Hanna asks.

"No, all charges have been dropped," Veronica says. "Apparently, all the evidence went missing."

Benny kisses Veronica on the cheek, and Hanna gives her a hug before leaving. Veronica pauses a moment, a flash of worry crossing her face, and follows them out.
