Outside, Nicky assures Matt that they will be fine, no one can track the crime to them. Leanne comes outside and tells them that Denise thinks she has lost the lottery ticket. Matt asks her how and she says she brought it out to work with her to keep it safe. Leanne reminds them that if they don't formally submit the ticket they won't get the money.

Leanne helps her daughter to rehearse what to tell if a stranger asks her questions. She asks Leanne if someone is going to find them because of the lottery. Leanne assures her that no one will find them.

Matt is in the hospital with his girlfriend and their baby. His girlfriend really wants to know who voted against him for the lottery winnings but he doesn't really care. She says that Nicky shouldn't have let Matt close the store. If the brothers had their roles reversed, Matt wouldn't be able to forgive himself.

Samira gets a ride to work from her father, he wants to share her money and offer free cab rides on Fridays. She tells him she will be out late at a party the lottery is throwing them. He tells her that she will have a great time with the doctor, Navide he is trying to set her up with. Her father thinks they are a perfect match since they now have money.

Leanne is shocked that Denise has taken her husband back after all he has done. She says they just needed some time apart though. Denise suggests that the two of them go shopping before the party with Samira. Leanne asks about the arranged marriage thing and Samira says that Navide is actually cut and smart.

Matt visits Bob in the hospital to talk about the robbery. He gets teary eyed before he is going to confess but Bob stops him. He says there's no reason to cry about it. A detective, Minetti, comes in just then to discuss some new details with Bob. First he brings Matt into the hallway and says there are a few inconsistencies in his story. Matt is asked to come to the station later and tell the whole thing one more time.

Some kids in the store tell Antonio they saw him in the paper. They ask what it's like to be the town's biggest loser. Nicky clears them out of the store and goes to talk to Samira. He asks her what he can do to get back on her good side but she just says nice try and walks away.

The reporter asks Antonio how it feels not to win the lottery. He pretends not to speak English but his cover is blown when Denise tells him that Bianca is on the phone for him.

Minetti, watches the surveillance tape with Matt. They have a few suspects and the officer asks Matt if he would like to see a line up. Matt agrees to do it right then but he just has to call his girlfriend. Matt calls Nicky, who says that he should man up and just pick a man to take the blame.

Leanne wants to avoid being interviewed so she volunteers to go shopping with Samira and Denise. While Samira gets ready to leave, Nicky confronts her again.

Matt takes a look at the men in the lineup. Minetti says that it doesn't matter if he's 100% sure and suggests that he chooses #5. Matt can't bring himself to turn the wrong man in though and says it is none of the men in the lineup. After Matt leaves, Minetti talks to #5 who was an undercover police officer. They were hoping to catch him lying and so they decide to have another look at Nicky.

Back at Gold Star, Leanne freaks out at the camera crew when they ask her too many questions. Matt asks if she is alright and Leanne says she doesn't want her story told. Nicky talks to Matt alone and asks how it went with the police. Matt says he handled it but suggests they come clean to at least Bob. Nicky feels terrible too because he doesn't want to go back to jail for betraying Bob's trust. If they come clean it will ruin everybody's second chance at life. Matt asks if he voted against him and Nicky says no because they are blood.

Bob's wife visits him in the hospital and gets him to agree to go on a vacation with her. The doctor enters the room and says he needs to talk with Bob.

The next day at the party that the lottery throws, Matt apologizes about bothering Leanne yesterday. He says that she was the only employee that hasn't talked about her life. She admits that Emma isn't her daughter. She has fostered her since she was born. Emma's real mother was a drug addict so Leanne ended up saving her by kidnapping her.

Antonio arrives at the party with his family but he has second thoughts. He worries that his son will always be bullied about losing the lottery. He wants his son to be proud of him. Elsewhere at the party, Samira tells Nicky that she can't see him. Navide shows up and hands Samira some ice cream.

When Bob arrives the crowd cheers for him. Matt asks to talk to him in private but Bob tells him to gather everyone. Inside Bob announces to his employees that the doctors found a brain tumor. Bob says that he never would have known about the tumor if he hadn't been hit in the head.

Everyone gathers to watch the news report about the lottery. The news report doesn't focus on the winners at all but instead stars Antonio. After the piece Bob starts a round of applause for Antonio. His son congratulates Antonio and says he is proud of him.
