Portia diagnoses him with a concussion, then apologizes to Jordan for their earlier confrontation. Chase briefs Liz on what happened with Aiden. Jordan learns that the security footage from Liz's house has been corrupted and advises Liz to move out for the time being. Liz nixes bunking with Finn and Violet, but agrees to relocate to the Metro Court. Liz and Finn run into Lucy, and Finn pooh-poohs Lucy's belief in the supernatural.
