Two days ago, Kilgrave was running away from Niku with Albert Thompson in tow when Luke Cage approached to kill him. Cage had followed Jessica Jones to the restaurant, hoping to find Kilgrave so he could exact his revenge for the death of Reva Connors; however, Kilgrave entranced Cage before he could strike and had him destroy Luke's, after he interrogated Cage about why Jones loved Cage, instead of him.

Kilgrave decided to keep his father alive so that the scientist could increase his power. Kilgrave had the employees of ZALK work non-stop, literally, to find that solution.

Now, Jones and Cage hide from the authorities as they arrive to investigate the destruction of Luke's; the couple go to the Alias Investigations Office where Cage gets some rest and Jones watches him, to assure that twelve hours have elapsed, enough time for Cage to be his own man again.

Searching for Kilgrave, Jones and Cage go to Thompson's hotel room which leads them to ZALK and the discovery of Kilgrave's plot. While waiting for Kilgrave to return to ZALK, Cage gives Jones a moving, heart-felt apology, forgiving her for the death of Connors and how he had insulted her. Kilgrave though sends a surrogate to Zalk, who Jones and Cage follow, but Kilgrave has him commit suicide in Central Park before Jones can interrogate him.

Meanwhile, still in the hospital from the Attack on Jessica Jones, Trish Walker discovers that IGH is practically non-existent, having no address or website, but Kozlov sent operatives to remove the body of McManus and his partner from her apartment. While conveying this information to Jones, Trish gets a visit from Dorothy Walker, her mother; they argue about Dorothy's parenting skills and Trish asks her to leave. However, after Trish is released, Dorothy brings Jones' medical bills from the car accident years ago; IGH had paid them. Trish wonders if IGH knew about Jones' abilities, or possibly created them.

When Jones and Cage return to Jessica Jones' Apartment Building, Walker is present, but decides against giving Jones the IGH folder, because there is too much occurring already.

Malcolm Ducasse has decided that he is going to live with his parents to get away from the confusion, but when he hears Robyn arguing with a postal carrier, he stops the quarrel to see her receive a package meant for Ruben. Robyn cries, remembering her brother.
