Roman claims he understands why Kate was protecting Lucas and explains his history with Eric, and how he let him take responsibility for his DUI. Paulina still thinks finding love at their age is worth making the extra effort. Roman won't budge as long as Lucas is coddled by Kate, who is demanding his freedom.

Kate comes in and she wants to talk to Roman. She tells him that Lucas is off to prison. Kate says she'll accept her part and will plead guilty as an accessory after the fact. She decides to leave that with Roman, Abe, and Paulina to chew on.
