In the next scene, Horatio is telling Chaz, "Take a good look around, Chaz. This is the last room you're going to be in that has windows." Chaz dismissively says, "Susie's a stoner. Nobody's going to believe her." Horatio sets him straight: they're not going after him for Darwin's murder, but for the attempted murder of all county employees who went after Darwin's crime scene. Chaz smirks, "What attempted murder? I wasn't even there." Ah, but the bomb was. Horatio says, "Physical evidence, My friend, is always better than an eyewitness." Chaz dismisses the charges as a consolation prize. Horatio asks, "Consolation prize?" and Chaz replies, "Yeah, for the loss of your brother, Tin Man." Horatio smiles without any mirth and says slowly, "Chaz, this is no way to start your rehabilitation." Chaz continues getting off on the wrong foot reform-wise with, "Tin Man was a dirty cop. Who do you think taught me how to make bathtub meth? Got himself killed before anyone found out the truth. Probably went out squealing like a little girl." And that would be when Horatio pulls Chaz to his feet. Tripp stands there looking like he's just waiting for an excuse to throw a punch. Horatio eventually says, "Get him out of here before I soil My reputation." As what? A brooding, sanctimonious blowhard?
And now, Julie comes to visit Alexx in her morgue. She tells Alexx, "You know I didn't do it." Alexx doesn't look up from her cleaning as she replies, "That's between you and your Maker." Julie asks, "Come on -- you believe me, don't you, Lex?" Ouch -- the nickname as appeal to loyalty. Alexx stops cleaning and replies, "You're smart and you always get what you want." This sets Julie off, since apparently the last thing she wanted was for her boy toy to end up in jail for life and her husband in the ground. Alexx shoots back, "Look who's still alive and fancy-free." Julie's amazed that Alexx thinks she did it. Alexx clarifies, "You didn't pull the trigger. But you are responsible, believe me, Julie, you are responsible." Julie's all, "You think I don't know that?" Alexx snaps, "There's no telling what you think! Our families spent every weekend together, and you got this whole other life right under my nose." Well, Julie always meant to tell her, but it was hard to get an opening. Alexx continues, "You let Denny take my kids out for ice cream! You know what kind of danger you put them in? If that boy had shot him some other night with my kids in the car, he could have killed them. He could have killed yours." Julie crumbles in the face of realizing that Alexx isn't just miffed for a foregone friendship, but for the threat to her children. Yay! I mean, yay that we get to see Alexx in a parental role, not yay that her kids were at risk. Julie asks for forgiveness. Alexx just tells her, "If it was the other way around, could you?" I'm guessing the answer to that is "no."
