Carl takes a sip from his flask, waiting out on the dock behind the bar in the darkness. When Mr. Ryan appears from around the corner, Carl tosses him a manila envelope with the cash. Ryan takes this opportunity to suggest Carl talk to his buddies on the docks who are still holding out. Just then, gunshots go off from the shadows. It's Matt with Carl's gun. Mr. Ryan falls off the dock and into the harbor. Carl can't believe what his friend just did. Matt explains that his daughter was the victim of a hit-and-run accident tonight, with Mr. Ryan almost certainly responsible. They're in this together now. Thinking quick, Carl figures the gunshots probably alerted some people, and, in fact, Jack was one of them. Carl hops up on "the Amanda" and starts up the engine so he can claim that the gunshots Jack heard were really backfires of the engine. The secret is safe between Carl and Matt for now.

Flash forward to the present. Aiden and Emanda are nested together in bed at Casa Emily. Aiden says he wouldn't have believed six years ago that he'd be there with her today. He wonders if it was Takeda's plan all along for them to end up together. All Ems can say is that Aiden better not disappear on her again. He promises he won't.
