Meanwhile, Alec realizes that Jordan could be a strong ally in his private war with his wife.

Derek's mother tells Theresa that someone has been leaving flowers routinely on Derek's grave. Theresa asks Dan to accompany her on a stakeout at the cemetery to hopefully catch a guilty murderer. Ethan tells Emma that he's tired of being pushed away. This conversation leaves Emma in tears as she starts regretting sleeping with Thayer. Alec confronts Jordan about his allegiance with Rebecca. Rebecca tells Ted that Kristin kissed Alec, as she's still trying to drive him away from his wife. Sutton accuses Rebecca of having to do with Derek's death. Rebecca tells her that Alec was the one that split her and Emma up, which was why Rebecca had a hand in framing Alec, but insists that she didn't kill Derek. Ted confronts Alec about the kiss and Alec reminds him of the huge favor that he did for him seventeen years ago - Rebecca told Alec about her pregnancy and told him to hide it from Ted, but Alec told Ted anyway so that he could adopt his biological daughter, Sutton.
