Foxy Lady looks around and checks that Senior is out of earshot before saying that Sanchez was with her that night. Riley asks why he didn't say anything. Duh. Foxy Lady states the obvious: Sanchez didn't want his father to know. Riley wants to hear more. Ew, not like that. Well, actually, maybe exactly like that.

Traub hopes that Jack has a game plan this time. Jack says he's working on it. Forrester is led into the meeting room by two guards. He joins Carlyle, Traub, Jack, and Fineman. Forrester guesses that Jack threatened the judge with judicial inquiry to get another meeting. Jack says that no one believed Forrester, and asks directly who was with Barrington when he died. Forrester doesn't answer, so Jack reminds him that the clock is ticking. Literally. There's a giant clock on the wall, ticking. If I were directing this show, I would go full-on drama at this point with super close-ups of each man's eyes, and a drop of sweat making it's way down Forrester's forehead, and a close-up of Jack's hands, tightly clenched, and the clock ticking, ticking, ticking. I guess it's a good thing I'm not a director. Forrester says that he took a souvenir from Casey Evans -- a small beer-bottle earring. Jack nods, and Traub takes off to check if that's true.
