Desperate times call for desperate measures,  after all, nothing else could justify why Murphy Mason (Perry Mattfeld) went to Chicago drug kingpin Nia Bailey (Nicki Micheaux) so she could help save Max Parrish (Casey Deidrick). However, will Max realize the weight of Murphy's sacrifice for him?

In this week's episode of 'In the Dark' on The CW, Dean Riley (Rich Sommer) goes to Max to get the latter to spill the beans on where Nia's stash house is. Max wants nothing to do with Dean, after all, Dean murdered a child and arrested Max to save his own ass.

Dean then goes to Murphy, telling her that if Max cooperates, he will get Max transferred to an out-of-state prison so that he would be out of reach from Nia and her people. Murphy believes Dean and tells Max the same, who then tells Dean where the stash house is.

Unfortunately, Murphy later realizes that Dean won't really do anything, especially when he says that the only person who can save Max is Nia herself.

This is why Murphy goes straight to Nia with the information that Dean knows where Nia's stash house is in exchange for calling off the hit on Max. Murphy is also forced to let Nia use Guiding Hope as her new stash house. 

This new deal means that not only is Murphy and Guiding Hope helping Nia to launder money, but they are also not getting into Nia's drug business and we all know that it can't be good. Fans are now worried about Murphy as well.

One fan tweeted, "Omg Murphy what have you done #InTheDark," while another wrote, "We’re moving drugs and laundering money. We’re officially in too deep. #InTheDark." Another fan tweeted, "Murphy is looking like Marty [Byrde] with all these moves behind her team’s back #InTheDark," comparing Murphy to Jason Bateman's character in Netflix's 'Ozark'.

One fan wrote, "Seems like they’re gonna get way [too] deep and only fix it with something they regret. #InTheDark," while another shared, "OMG. THAT. TWIST. Murphy really went to Nia with no f**ks left to give and left her with no choice but to pay the price Murphy asked for. #InTheDark."

Fans also hope that Max realizes what Murphy did for him because it didn't seem like Max ever wanted anything to do with Murphy again after he got stabbed by one of Nia's men in prison. One fan wrote, "If Murphy isn't on Max's good side again after doing that for him, he's one stupid idiot #InTheDark," while another tweeted, "U best be talking to Murphy after what she just did for u, Max!!!"

'In the Dark' airs on The CW on Thursday nights at 9/8c.
