Jasmine finally clicks that Shane is a wrong sort who has strayed to the other side of the law tonight, when he goes all Ike Turner when she suggests that the McFarlane case is integral to her career. He tries fobbing her off on a homeless story, but she doesn't care about the plight of the lowly hobo and wants the juicy crime stuff that sells papers. Being a wily reporter she pretends that everything is okay to Shane, but then looks away ponderously as folk do in soapland and the end of every scene. Elsewhere, Marlon insists that Donna takes Ross with her to quiz the MacFarlanes. But Donna decides to limit Ross's involvement to an alibi at work and heads off to the club.
