He tells her that he's confessed and they now have a lawyer. He advises her to get one, too. He gives her the business card of one and tells her to have her mother call when she gets home.

Landry asks Tyra if she was afraid of the rapist that night. She tearfully tells him that she was honestly in fear for her life.
