Elsewhere on the carpet, Jonah spots Riley talking to Charlie Kitsus. Apparently, Riley has been talking golf with him. She seems to have made quite the impression, much to Jonah's surprise. Riley gets a call from Violet and excuses herself to actually answer it. Didn't see that coming. After Charlie gives a little advice to Jonah and starts to talk about Jonah's movie, Riley comes back and says she has to go. Jonah does a double-take and turns into his cartoony self. Charlie invites them to an afterparty but Riley insists she can't go. Jonah is in disbelief. "Jonah, Violet's in jail," she says in front of Charlie. Riley, when you finally gain some ground with me, you go and Riley it all up.
Riley's leaving the premiere, and Jonah's following after her. He still doesn't understand why Riley has to go help Violet, whom he suspects probably belongs in prison anyway. Riley tries to calm him down. She assures him Charlie likes him and everything will work out if he just goes back in and lets her go help Violet. She drives off, and Jonah goes back in alone.
In an interrogation room, Violet sits at a table with our two familiar detectives. They start off with the obvious question: Why run if you're not guilty? Violet's reason is she's just afraid of cops. Slick. They present to her evidence of her fingerprints on the lanyard which she tried to give Sydney as a gift when she revealed she was her daughter. Why was she giving a gift to her new landlord, they ask Violet. She reveals to them she is Sydney's daughter, and lies about Sydney being happy about the whole thing. Detective Rodriguez asks Violet if she's ever been arrested. Negative. Then why is she afraid of the police? No answer.
Lauren is sitting by herself still trying to figure out what the hell just happened to her. She stares at her phone long enough to conjure a text from Toby, saying he missed a connecting flight. The guy from earlier returns to apologize for being so presumptuous, but then he turns right around and asks Lauren if she's "working tonight." She thinks for a second and tells him she is.
