When he lies about what is bothering him, Beth starts to worry that his gambling problem has returned. When he meets up with Nick to tell him, he realizes the stress of the project is getting to Nick.

Geneva threatens to make him look bad and expose a long-buried secret from his past. Ronny struggles with his dilemma of whether or not to tell Nick what he knows. His increasingly erratic behavior alarms his loved ones and he begins to look like the one with the shocking secret, rather than Geneva. Nick has to figure out how to stop Geneva and keep his friendship with Nick...all while salvaging his own life.
