Episode 103 Recap: "Alex Is Pregnant"
"If you hurt him, I promise you I will go to the real police," she says.
"I am the real police," Eddie says firmly.
Esperanza won't be daunted and demands to know why Julius won't answer her calls.
"Dead people don't talk," Eddie says quietly.
Esperanza doesn't believe him, but Eddie won't give her any more information. Exasperated, she goes back inside.
Finally, Alex snaps. "What has gotten into you?"
"What has gotten into you?" Brad says pointedly.
After a few more chilly words pass between them, Brad leaves for work.
Outside, Randal is taking a string trimmer to the front lawn. Before Brad gets into his car, he asks Randal whether he's noticed any men coming to the house. Randal says that he has not, aside from delivery or maintenance men, and he hasn't noticed them staying longer than usual. Concerned, Randal asks Brad what's going on.
"Nothing," Brad says.

Esperanza arrives at Kelly's new house to find she isn't home, but she sees Randal still working on his lawn down the block. She goes over to say hello while she waits for Kelly, and cajoles Randal into lending a hand in helping Kelly to get settled in—a task he agrees to do when he hears Alex will be there.
Kelly arrives and apologizes for being late, and Alex comes next door to help her friends.
Alex asks Kelly how Travis reacted when she got pregnant. Kelly pauses and then says, "Travis is, um…is not Justice's dad."
Alex and Esperanza are surprised, and the latter asks whether Justice knows that. Kelly admits that he doesn't.
"Look, I just think that it's always best to tell the truth," Alex says. "That way nobody gets hurt in the long run."
Kelly brushes her friends off by saying that she will tell him one day but that, at the moment, she needs help unpacking.
As Brad begins to scold Eddie, his assistant comes in to tell him his doctor is on the phone. Brad asks Eddie to leave, but Eddie refuses, claiming that the friends have no secrets between them. Reluctantly, Brad takes the call.
"I was just wondering if it's possible for a vasectomy to fail," he says. "Yes, she is pregnant."
At this, Eddie's interest is piqued. After Brad hangs up, he asks whether Brad suspects Alex of cheating. When Brad admits that he does, Eddie says he was only joking, and assures him that she would never be unfaithful.
Esperanza apologizes, but Julius says that Eddie is the one who's going to be sorry. Alarmed, Esperanza asks what he means.
"I'm going to take care of him," Julius says.
With a jolt of fear, Esperanza begs Julius not to hurt the father of her child. Julius is unmoved and hangs up. With that, Esperanza makes an excuse to Kelly and leaves.

"Don't get hurt, kid," Eddie warns, seething.
As Eddie tries to talk the kid down, Lushion comes running out and puts himself between the gun and Eddie. Slowly, he convinces the boy to hand over the gun. Eddie pounces and winds up to hit the boy, but Lushion intervenes. Eddie's backup finally arrives, and he drags the kid to the squad car without another word to his savior.
"You're welcome," Lushion mutters to Eddie's back.
"This morning sickness is no joke. I know firsthand," Kelly says. "Look, go home; get into bed."
Once they're next door, Randal confronts Alex.
"You're pregnant?" he demands.
Alex admits that she is. Randal puts the pieces together regarding Brad's odd question from that morning. He tells Alex that Brad asked about other men at the house—and he reveals that Brad had a vasectomy. Randal asks whether the baby could be his, but Alex won't hear it.
"I'm trying to stop this, remember?" she says. "I'm trying to get away from you, and you won't let me."
Unwilling to talk any further, Alex tells Randal to leave.
