In the interrogation room, Rafe slams the Sarah mask he received from Leo onto the table. Gwen points out that Leo can’t be trusted, but Rafe knows she wasn’t in bed the night Abigail was killed. Gwen insists she didn’t. She would never do that to her father. Rafe invites her to convince him. Gwen admits to temporarily leaving prison. It doesn’t matter how, but she left after Abby broke her present for Jack on his birthday. She put on Sarah’s mask at the mansion to trick Abigail into thinking Sarah was hallucinating. She pulled out a syringe, they struggled, and the mask fell off. Abigail realized that Gwen wanted people to think Sarah attacked her to get her rival locked up. Gwen insisted that the syringe was only filled with saline solution and that Abigail was just a means to an end.
