In her cell, Kendall confesses to Trey that she broke into Erica’s house once. She tells him she only wanted to look around since she had not been past the foyer since returning. She found no pictures of her, nothing to show she existed. Trey questions if she can blame Erica, seeing as how she is a result of rape. Kendall gets upset, saying that her conception was in no way her fault. Trey tells her everything she’s told him will get her convicted even though she keeps telling him she is not guilty. She continues relating her visit to Erica’s, that she went in Bianca’s room and imagined what things would have been like if she had all of those things. Trey breaks the news that the police found her lighter at the scene. She orders him to check her purse and that he’ll find it there. He checked, he says, her lighter was gone. He tells her Jackson will do everything in his power to make her disappear. Ryan arrives as Trey declares to be done for now.

He tells her he got the bike fixed and it’s ready for their trip, but she tells him she can’t go. He promises to wait for her and to think of places they could go. She mentions the Grand Canyon and Graceland and asks if that’s boring. Nothing about their trip will be boring, he declares, that they can find all sorts of out of the way places to make love. They then rethink Graceland, laughing. She tells him she has never wanted anything so bad and he tells her it will happen. She questions why they’re making these plans because of all the evidence against her, even Trey is telling her to plead guilty. He tells her to lean on him and trust him as she admits to be scared and he comforts her through the bars.
