Aidan tells a furious Alya he was in the area of Showcase's office when they rang him and he didn't have time to summon her. She refuses to listen to him. Tyrone tells Kirk about their meet-up, lying that Fiz wants to make up. Anna is ecstatic to see Gary and gets him to promise never to go back to the Ukraine.
