Adele and Carlos are acquainted.
Julian and Dana argue. He's not under contract so he can run off. Her? Not so much.

Julian tells Carlos that everything Adele had was a honeypot... she was mant to find it. He wakes up and she's gone; lipstick note on the mirror. Julian is disgusted.

Betty gets the word that she can talk to someone. She wants to go alone. Nealon comes from the alley and shoots Elton and Betty, killing them both.
Kiera: This is serious.
Samantha: I agree. You're not the only one who gets to take a leap for what she believes in. People should have the freedom to move, to think for themselves, to chase ridiculous dreams if that's what they want. ARREST ME!
