He saw Chelsea walking away from the building, assumed the tip was wrong, and he left before the shooting occurred. Amanda was frustrated with Billy for lying to her and lying to the police.

He told Victoria that he’d put Adam in a psych ward for his own good. Victoria didn’t think it’d help. Rey revealed that Billy was the owner of the gun that shot Chance. Billy said he left the gun at Victoria’s place years ago. Victoria told Rey that she and Billy suspected Adam was the one who broke into her house a few weeks ago. She theorized that he stole the gun. She’d never thought to check the lock box to make sure the gun was still there. Billy overheard Victoria stand up for him with Rey. Victoria noted there was evidence against Billy. He realized she wasn’t 100% sure he was innocent, and he understood that. He wondered if Adam stole the gun and hired someone to shoot him to frame Billy. However, he didn’t think that theory made any sense.

Chance and Rey talked about the case. Rey had enough evidence to bring Billy down to the station, but he wasn’t going to bring anyone in until he had a solid case. Adam hallucinated a young version of himself and argued with his childhood self about whether he belonged in the mental hospital and about whether Victor was to blame. Victor visited and tried in vain to convince Adam that this treatment would heal him. Victor saw Adam arguing with young Adam and called in an orderly.
