|The episodes summaries|
Mason is thrown out the door of the presidential suite of the Capwell hotel, which must be left vacant for the arrival of the countess Armonti in the city. He leaves, his suitcases in hand, arrives at Veronica's and asks her to accommodate him. And yet Veronica says that she cannot welcome him, because she already has her brother staying with her who has just arrived in the city. It proves to be that it is in fact Lionel who already occupies this room. After Warren, Sergeant Monroe questions Gina about the death of her sister. Gina announces to him, as well as to Mason, of the existence of Hank Judson, her old boyfriend who violated Summer in the past. Enquiring about the man, Clifford Monroe discovers that Hank indeed has a police record. Warren reassures Laken on the fact that even if their father was present at the time of the death of Sophia, he is not necessarily the murderer. Laken who thinks it is then uneasy facing Ted, feels she is unable to announce this secret to him. Arriving at the high school, they acquaint themselves with Jackie, their new professor. The countess Armonti finally arrives at the Capwell hotel and is welcomed by C.C. in person. Finally for once, this person removes their broad black glasses and shows their face: it is Sophia!
