Before the trial, the threats are really just nuisances, but after the trial they begin turning deadly. Ashe and Deborah are forced closer together, and they fall in love again, and once more become lovers.

When Deborah finally works up the nerve to tell Ashe the truth about their son, Ashe is furious and goes off to be alone for awhile. When he returns home, Allen tells him his other bodyguard has been shot and Deborah has been kidnapped. Ashe must find her before it is too late.
