FIRE AND PAIN
A panicked Blair interrupts John and Natalie’s discussion about what their future holds to plead for John’s help in locating a missing Tomas. Natalie grows suspicious when she hears Todd tell Viki that Blair has chosen to be with Tomas instead of him. John searches Tea’s house and finds a gun in Tomas’s room that could potentially be the murder weapon. While John and Tea take the gun to Natalie at the station for testing, Todd is with Blair feigning support in her hour of distress over Tomas’s disappearance. Blair calls Tea who informs her that the murder weapon may have been found, and Blair goes to the police station. Viki tries to delve into Todd’s feelings about Victor’s murder but John calls and requests that Todd come in for questioning. During John’s questioning in the presence of Tea and Blair, Todd cleverly attempts to throw suspicion onto Tomas, without being obvious to Blair. Afterward, Todd takes Blair home and the pair grow closer. Roxy spills the beans about John’s feelings for Natalie and Natalie has a surprising reaction and goes to John and cancels the talk about their future. Meanwhile, John’s attention is split between investigating Victor’s murder and the arson at the Sun. John questions Brody at St. Anne’s, and Brody admits to locking Vimal and Rama in Todd’s office, but claims he didn’t start the fire. As John leaves, he runs into Natalie who has come to visit Brody. Todd mentions the fire to Jack and is unnerved by Jack’s reaction. Later, Todd is waiting to see John when Tracy, his assistant, arrives to speak with John. Tracy mentions something about the fire that further alarms Todd. John informs Tea, Todd and Blair that Tomas’s alibi for Victor’s murder has been found.
