Joan runs out to see that Steve's backing his pickup out of the parking lot. She screams, "Ramsay!" She runs for the vehicle. Behind her, Adam's just run out of the school to see all this. Joan stands right in front of the truck and holds up her hands to get Steve to stop, which he does, though I kind of thought he was prepared to run her down. She opens the passenger door and says, "I told them what happened! You won't get expelled!" Steve snarls, "Just forget it!" Joan begs him to come back inside with her. He screeches, "Leave me alone!" Joan jumps into the truck, and he peels out. Adam, who's watched the whole thing, runs back into the school.
Will and Toni are working late, going over Roebuck's material. Toni says he wasn't exaggerating: "Kickbacks on construction contracts eight years running, council members and judges taking bribes, city inspectors, the mayor." Will: "I hate to say it, but we may be in over our heads on this." He notices Toni's face and says, "You don't have to be a part of this, Detective, but if you're going to step away, you should do it now." His cell phone rings and he answers it, saying right away, "Helen, can I call you back?" Then he listens and says he'll be right there in ten minutes. He gives Toni the number of his FBI field rep in Chicago -- Victor de la Cruz -- and tells her to call him: "Get him everything tonight. Tell him we're putting ourselves in his hands." She takes the number and says, "Okay. I got it."
Sirens and lights as Will and a uniformed officer pull into the school parking lot. Helen and Adam come running out; Helen says, "She's in his truck!" Will asks what happened; Adam says Joan ran after Steve and jumped in his truck as he was leaving. Helen tells Will he may have been drinking. Adam: "There's this place that he hangs out at sometimes -- I think I can get you there." Will: "Okay, let's go." Helen gives Will an anxious look, and he assures her it's going to be okay. Will, Adam, and the officer take off in the two cars as Helen stands there, prematurely aging some more.
