Lies, betrayal, and adultery all come to a head, and Richie is caught in the crossfire.
A police detective serves a warrant for Richie's laptop in order to obtain the photos that Ritchie took at Hector's birthday party. Ritchie confirms that he deleted the photos but willingly surrenders his laptop and flash drive. With Ritchie being called as a material witness, Thanassis reveals his strategy to Harry: he will get the pictures recovered from Ritchie's computer thrown out and, despite Harry's misgivings, leak new information he acquired about Ritchie's past. He has learned that Ritchie and his gay lover were the victims of cyberbullying, in which photographs on him and his lover in "very private moments," were circulated widely on the internet, resulting the suicide of his lover. Ritchie also attempted suicide, but was institutionalized for six months. Ritchie legally changed his last name from Collins to Joanau, and he and his mother moved to start life over. His past is published by a New York newspaper pursuing the foolishness of a simple slap ending up in court, an "only in New York" story. With his past in print, Ritchie again attempts suicide, but is found by Gary, who calls an ambulance. Ritchie recovers and is able to testify in court the following week. When questioned by Thanassis, he explains that he deleted the photos because they were photographs of people he cared about behaving badly and felt that no one should see them, in the way pictures of him had caused such pain in the past. He also confirms that the photos don't support Harry's defense. Harry is only found guilty of attempted assault of a minor in the third degree, but the judge merely sentences him to the time already served on the evening he was originally arrested. She then advises Gary and Rosie that they can expect a visit from Child Protective Services, as their drinking and drunk breast-feeding have endangered Hugo, and should Hugo ever be found again being harmed or harming someone else, they will be held responsible. She also bluntly tells the courtroom that the entire trial has been a waste of time. Connie is shown saying good-bye to Ritchie as she leaves for college, while he has been accepted to study art at The New School. At Anouk's home, Manolis and Koula, Hector and Aisha, Harry and Sandi, and their assorted children are celebrating the arrival of a newborn to Anouk, who has broken up with Jamie. Gary and Rosie arrive, and upon seeing Harry, abruptly start to leave. As the guests beg them to stay, an uncharacteristically well-behaved Hugo approaches Anouk, who allows him to hold her new baby.
