L., appears in her house, and tries to convince her of his innocence; he explains that he changed his mind and pulled out of the bank raid, only to be set up by his replacement, a mysterious woman. Nikki agrees to meet D.L.’s associates and learn the truth from them, but when the two of them arrive at their establishment – where Hiro and Ando had been playing poker – they that find D.L.’s friends have been brutally murdered. After suffering more memory blanks, Nikki meets her alter ego, who reveals that she framed D.L. and committed the murders. Following her alter ego’s instructions, Nikki finds the stolen bank money hidden in the loft, but is then confronted by an outraged D.L..
