"Sorta figured that..." Eric said as he climbed into the car. "Let's just get down there."

[Does Eric know Frank?]

Michael buckled his seat belt and covered his wife's hand with his own, feeling her shift the car into drive and pull out of the parking lot. "We know one thing," he said, "this isn't about Jack, thank God."

Brittany nodded, "Let's just hope this is an isolated incident. I'm sure Durant knows and we'll be blitzing all day. We'll have to cancel everything else for today, I'm guessing, but I won't know till we get there."

[He may be vaguely familiar with him ... both appeared in "Imago Dei," but never met -- yet Frank and Brittany dated for something like a year, so it could be implied they met at some point.]

"Yeah," Eric nodded. "You're right that's it's probably isolated..." He shrugged, sitting back as they started making their way there.

"I'm not making any assumptions." Brittany was thankful for the stunt driving course she had taken on a whim, using it to navigate her way through Los Angeles traffic. "Frank will know what's really happening out there."

Eric glanced at his watch, calculating when Arica would be out of her class and he could try calling her again. "Nice driving Brittany," he quipped.

"It works, doesn't it?" she said without looking back. "I know Frank. If he called, it's not 'cause he wants to have lunch, although he does do that from time to time. I know him. I lived with him for a year."

Eric glanced at Mike. "Yeah I remember."

Mike nodded. He understood that Frank had loved her and protected her when he couldn't, and even as much as it hurt to think she'd been with someone else, he knew that without Frank she might not have been around when he got to his senses.

"It's okay," he said, reading Eric's thoughts. "That was a long time ago."

"Okay, good," Eric said, glad that Mike wasn't beating himself up yet again...

"Yeah, the past is in the past," Brittany concurred, "but Frank's still important to me."

"He should be," Mike agreed. "At least he hasn't hit me again. For a guy of his size, that hurt immensely. He knows what he's doing."

Eric chuckled. "So someone did get to hit you..." he said playfully.

"He decked him," Brittany explained.

"Yeah, he hit me pretty hard. Square in the jaw, took me right off my feet. It bruised, actually." Michael sighed. "Were I him, I'd have done the same."

"Did I not offer to do it many times?" Eric asked in a teasing tone.

"This was different. You weren't the boyfriend after me whose entire relationship with her was based on our breakup."

"That was not everything," Brittany corrected.

"But it was how that started," Michael continued.

"Well like you said..." Eric trailed off when he looked up and saw where the smoke was coming from. "Shit. That looks like it's the forensic lab," he said, fear creeping into his voice. Picking up his cell phone, he tried and failed to reach Arica again.

"He's right. This is my campus, I should know it by now." Brittany swung the car hard into the next lane, grinding the gas pedal to the floor. "Thank God this is built for this."

"I still can't reach Arica," Eric said.

Eric didn't say it, but soon enough wasn't good enough for him.
