Randall decides to go with the deflection story leaving Bel and Freddie mad that Rosa out herself on the line only to not use the story. Camille comes to the station to tell Freddie she is going away for a few days, she cannot find Freddie so she tells Bell to transfer the message. Freddie is still mad at the deflection story, Bel tells him Camille has gone so he says they were fighting over her.
