At the courthouse, Martin pushes Liz about denying Jake Doe's identity. Liz admits it, but adds this is not the same since this man is not Drew Cain. Liz says Kim wants to hang onto Franco as Drew, but she needs to let him go back to being Franco.

It turns out the painting is the one of Helena that Valentin threw away. Ava recognizes it and doesn't want anything to do with it. Trina talks about the art of the painting. Ava changes her mind and pays Dev $100 for it. 

Ava realizes that the painter was Jay Garrett, who likes to leave clues in his paintings. She thanks Trina for convincing her to buy the painting and hires her.
