Nora: But you didn’t. You didn’t tell us. You just went ahead and tried to split Bo and I up because that’s what you wanted. Well, I just hope that Clint and Bo can settle this without anyone else getting hurt.
Inez confesses that she drugged and lied to Bo, and Nora is outraged. Inez says that Bo was upset about the texts, but after the drug took effect, Bo thought he was with Nora, and he loves Nora too much to cheat on her. Bo believes Inez... and so does Nora. Relieved, they hug, but Nora then instructs Bo to arrest Inez.
Inez admits she was attracted to Bo, but she was forced to seduce him. Nora thinks Inez’s claims are “all smoke and mirrors,” and Bo thinks Nora’s right, but Inez drops the bomb: Clint masterminded everything.
Inez says Clint did favors for Inez, hired the lawyer for Eddie, and capitalized on Inez’s desperation. Inez didn’t immediately agree to Clint’s plan, but her sons were threatened, and Clint assured Inez that Nora would “not be a problem.” Bo and Nora are floored. They piece together all of the subtle clues, but wonder about the true extent of Clint’s involvement. Inez pleads with them to believe her, but Bo places her under arrest because she did just confess to drugging the police commissioner.
There’s something Bo needs to do. Nora tells Bo they have no proof against Clint, and she begs him not to do anything he’ll regret or that will cause him harm. They kiss, and Bo leaves. Before Inez is taken away, Nora asks why Inez didn’t confide in Bo or Nora. Inez has no excuse.

She wonders if Clint suffers anymore. “Pa died, and everything went to hell.” Clint recounts how he and Bo as children always fought to wear Asa’s hat, and Clint usually won. Clint says Dorian is Echo’s problem. Echo encourages Clint to “hang the hat back on that hook,” and she leaves.
