  • Brady has arrested Garrett on the discovery of the knife with the chipped handle in his cabin. During his incarceration, Garrett is able to reflect on the fourteen years he lived out in the woods including how he came about the cabin which he lived in for most of that time, how he learned to trap for food, the unexpected companionship he received leading to a specific act near the end of that time period, and how he learned that Mitchell was in the hospital. Madeline and Darcy Campano, the lawyer that Madeline hires to represent Garrett, tell him not to say anything to the police, with Darcy further telling him not to say anything to anyone, including to her. Regardless of that advice, Garrett acts like he is guilty, he wanting to make amends to each individual person in the family, the talk with Tessa which is the especially difficult one for both of them. Garrett is unaware that Brady has asked Tessa to gauge Garrett's guilt or innocence both by what he says and how he acts, not only for Brady's own benefit but also for her own sense of possible closure if Garrett is indeed guilty. However it is the discussion that Garrett has with Jack that could be the game changer. Meanwhile, Alison decides further to use Jennifer Windham to her benefit. What Alison asks of Jennifer has an unexpected outcome.

  • Brady found Garrett's prints o the knife Jack found in his cabin and jails him, yet asks for the truth, presuming he's not Silber Bells, but even Tessa can't get confirmation her never murdered anyone, attorney Darcy Campano whom Madelin arranged gets no cooperation. Meanwhile he reminisces how he as adolescent, leaving Boston indefinitely, 'couch hopping' empty wood cabins, made the acquaintance of old sick grump Al Jenkins, who spent a month a year in the wood, became his survival mentor and only lonely friend. Cam considers Madelin's suggestion he should file for sole custody of his boy, Sophie being unfit. Only when Jack mentions Christina's pregnancy, Garrett wants out. Alison ruthlessly blackmails bug-caught reporter Jennifer Windham to find dirt on mayor Conley to air, but the station airs a very different live sensation.
