MARGOT LEAVES THE BGL CABINET
Upset by the death of her uncle, Johanna gives an interview to Midi Libre. Johanna then tells Marc that Guilhem was like a father to her. Revolted by the preferential treatment from which Officer Alami benefits but above all convinced that it is a set-up, she informs him that she is going to become a civil party in order to be as close as possible to the investigation. She also assures him that she intends to shed light on Guilhem's death.
For his part, Akim finds Margot on the beach and confides to her that he does not know how he is going to live with the death of a man on his conscience. Margot therefore reminds him that he defended himself in self-defense and that he has nothing to reproach himself for. Besides, she would never have gotten over it if something had happened to her. While he tries to find out when she is leaving for the United States, Margot tells him that she is no longer leaving. Indeed, the young woman could not see herself letting him fall into such an ordeal. Sure of herself, Margot declares that she loves him. The most important thing in his eyes is that they are together. Reconciled, the couple kiss.
Estelle, for her part, feels like she's living a nightmare. If she blames herself terribly for Guilhem's death, the masseuse also feels guilty for having dragged Akim into this whole story.
Later, Manu tries to reassure Akim. Indeed, Captain Léoni believes that his colleague reacted in self-defense. It is also certain that he will return to his functions in a short time. Akim thanks him for his support.
In the office, Margot reads the article on Guilhem's death published in Le Midi Libre. Very annoyed by Johanna's words, she goes to her office to get explanations. Johanna then explains to him that she has serious doubts about what happened. Knowing Akim, Margot makes him understand that if he had made a mistake, he would assume the consequences. The tone quickly rises and Johanna declares that she simply wants all hypotheses to be studied without complacency. She specifies that if this were the case, Akim would be behind bars by now.
Claudine, who heard their exchange, later criticizes Margot for having been aggressive towards Johanna. Although she has no opinion on the subject, Claudine nevertheless makes her understand that the firm cannot operate in such an atmosphere. If she wants to continue working here, Margot will have to put her personal feelings aside and be more professional. Annoyed, Margot declares that she will no longer set foot in the office before leaving the place furious…
Meanwhile, Élisabeth is in tears because she is struggling to get over Guilhem's death. Moved, she confides to Alain how much she blames herself for not having been able to protect him. In fact, she had a bad feeling and suspected that he was putting himself in danger in one way or another with Estelle.
JADE IS GUILT
In the morning, Élise and Alex go to the motorcycle store to question Sandra. If she admits that Jade has been one of her employees for several months, Sandra on the other hand makes the police believe that she has been on sick leave for a week.
Worried, Sandra waits for the police to leave to warn Jade. While the young woman says she is sorry for having dragged her into this, Sandra emphasizes that it is her decision before specifying that she takes responsibility. As she was forced to give them her address, Sandra asks her to be careful. Jade then explains that she has been hiding for a while and that they won't be able to find her then thanks her for everything she has done for her before hanging up.
Guilt-ridden, Jade wonders if it might be better if she goes to the police. Indeed, she doesn't want Sandra and Ludo to have problems because of her. However, Ludo refuses, especially since he is certain that Alex will eventually find those truly responsible for the theft. He therefore advises him to wait before making a decision.
Meanwhile, Alex and Élise searched Jade's apartment. Back at the police station, the police inform Commissioner Bercker that the young woman has already left. As there are many elements against her, the commissioner orders them to continue the investigation.
Later, Alex receives a call from Mr. Belmont, a port employee who discovered a suspicious container leaving for Nigeria. A few days earlier, two men loaded motorcycles inside.
