Malcolm and Jessica discuss Kilgrave and his powers. Malcolm suggests pooling information about Kilgrave because his powers aren't magic and they can work together to stop him.

Jessica tells Luke she'll give him another P.I.'s info but Luke wants her. He starts explaining the story of Antwon Greer. He got in deep with a loan shark. He took money from his sister to pay it back but didn't pay it back. Jessica questions Luke's motives, quoting him on how he only protects what's his.

Hogarth leaves and Jessica goes inside the prison. Jessica meets Garcia in the visiting room and gives her money for the vending machine. Jessica finds her there and pins her against it, threatening to take her hand off if she touches Hope again. Garcia tells Jessica Hope paid her to beat her up.
Jessica meets Hope in the infirmary and questions why she paid Garcia to beat her. Hope reveals she is pregnant. The doctor won't see her for two months. Hope won't wait that long because every second the baby is there she is raped again and her parents are shot again. She won't give life to this baby she calls a "thing."
Jessica sends a picture to Kilgrave when he requests it. He is sitting in a restaurant looking at houses on his computer and yells at the crowded place to be quiet. They do. He reviews the pictures she sent so far.

Outside, Jessica and Luke encounter the loan shark. Luke wants to strike a deal to find Antwon. Jessica gets 5% finder's fee and they all part ways. Luke offers Jessica a ride home on his bike. He hands her a helmet and they ride off. They arrive and Luke asks what's next - with Antown - and she tells him she's going to do some digging before heading inside. Malcolm approaches Luke and questions Luke's interest. He doesn't want Jessica to be hurt. Luke tells Malcolm not to get attached. Luke asks about Kilgrave.

Luke knocks on Jessica's door. She tells him to go home. He says, "I know about Kilgrave" and explains that he knows what he did to Malcolm and her. He brings up how he shut her down when she tried to open up about it and thinks that's why she left but she says it isn't. He wants to "make it right." She opens the door and tells him he can't make it right and he didn't do anything wrong. She belittles herself. Luke steps inside. He assures her, whatever happened, it was Kilgrave, not her. She kisses Luke, passionately.
The next morning, the two lay in bed together. Luke admires her and says he is just thinking. She puts a shirt on but Luke poses for her and gets her back in bed. He asks if she's going to go after Kilgrave and tells her she doesn't have to do it alone but she insists that she does. He has to say something but her phone rings and it's Antwon. She requests an address to deliver the Xbox today. Jessica tells Luke that unless Antwon had a Puerto Rican accent, this wasn't him, and he must be in trouble. Luke reveals that he doesn't know Antwon, or his sister for whom he claims to be keeping his word, all that well. He is doing this to try to find proof of his wife's death not being an accident which startles Jessica. Jessica claims the woman has no proof, she's just taking advantage of Luke's stregnth. Luke tells her that after Riva died, he found an envelope with instructions to go to where Riva died. He did and dug where it said something was buried.
Flashback. Jessica digs a whole with an axe. Riva and Kilgrave look on. Her hands are bloodied. Jessica opens a box with a small yellow USB drive inside of it. The three go outside and Kilgrave orders Jessica to take care of Riva.
Now. Jessica is concerned about what proof the woman has. Jessica rushes to the bathroom to send a picture of herself to Kilgrave. Luke knocks on the door and he's leaving. Kilgrave responds, "You're late. Don't let it happen again."

He has a real estate agreement drawn up and tells him he has to be out of the house by end of day, tomorrow.
Jessica hurries to pursue Antwon. Luke shows up with coffee. They're both early. They spot their man and start to follow him. He is dropped off at a warehouse. They ride into the lot and Luke says it is a good place to hold a guy prisoner. Jessica rips the lock off the door and they enter. They find a greenhouse growing weed and Luke says, "Sweet Christmas." A pair of guard dogs approach. Luke takes over, saying sharp teeth is kind of his specialty. Their man walks out to yell at the dogs and Jessica grabs him, demanding information about Antwon. She throws him aside and finds Antwon organizing bags of weed. She escorts him out and the lloan shark tries to cut them off. Jessica offers all the weed for her to keep Antwon but he won't renegotiate. Jessica and Luke dispatch of all of the loan shark's men but the shark goes after Antwon. Luke grabs him and starts taking on two men. It looks like he might be in trouble but he literally turns the tables and fights the men off.
Jessica delivers Antwon to his sister, Celina. Jessica demands Celina give her what she promised Luke. Luke enters and tells Jessica, "I guess I should get used to you bailing me." He grabs the folder with the evidence in it and Jessica tries to convince him not to open it. He does anyway and he looks her. He sees that the bus driver, Charles Wallace, was drunk and blames him for killing Riva. Jessica asks him if it's done and he nods before walking out. Celina reveals to Jessica that Charles Wallace is still driving the same route because the MTA covered up the truth about the accident.
Luke rides the bus. He stares at the driver. The bus empties and Luke is the last one onboard. The driver tells Luke it's the last stop and Luke approaches him, asking, "You know who I am?" He has no idea. "How about Riva Conners?" The driver is saddened and he apologizes. Luke grabs him and throws him through the window. Jessica rushes to his aid and tells Luke he can't kill the driver. She tries to hold Luke back and free the bus driver but Luke shoves her aside. The bus driver is able to make it away.
Jessica cries out, "Charles didn't kill your wife!" before pausing. "I did," she reveals. He doesn't believe her. She explains that Kilgrave and her brought Riva to the warehouse. Kilgrave manipulated Riva into giving her the USB drive before telling Jessica to kill Riva. He forced her to do it. Luke pushes Jessica against the bus. Jessica tells Luke she hit Riva and killed hit. She was dead before the bus got there. Luke cocks back and punches the bus. "You slept with me," he says. "I didn't plan that. It just happened," she tells him. He tells her she made him think he could get past it, asking if Kilgrave forced her to do that. He is shocked, saddened, and insulted. He asks if she would've ever told him the truth and a crying Jessica doesn't respond. "I was wrong, you are a piece of shit," Luke says before walking away.
