Spoilers for 'The 100' Season 2 

In last week's episode of 'In the Dark' on The CW, Murphy Mason (Perry Mattfeld) made a huge decision which might end up being something she regrets. After Nia Bailey (Nicki Micheaux) puts out a hit on Max Parish (Casey Deidrick), Murphy first tries to get Dean Riley (Rich Sommer) to help Max.

But when it becomes clear that Dean will not, after all, help Max — he says even if he transferred Max to an out of state prison, Nia will still get to him — Murphy goes to Nia to tell her that Max told Dean where Nia's stash house is.

But, now Nia has to move the drugs and turns out, Murphy now has to keep Nia's drugs at Guiding Hope, the school for training guide dogs where Murphy, her best friend, Jess Damon (Brooke Markham), and Felix Bell (Morgan Krantz) work at. 

The synopsis for this week's episode says, "Murphy's choices plunge the Guiding Hope crew deeper into Nia's game, as Jess continues to grow suspicious of the closed-door meetings between Felix and Murphy."

"Dean tries to keep Chloe away from Murphy lest she discovers the truth about her dad. Pressure mounts as Darnell fails to deliver on his commitment and Max realizes escaping his prior life is even harder than he thought."

The promo for this week's episode shows that Nia will be asking Murphy to deliver some of those drugs and the latter will be roping in Felix to help.

Felix understandably freaks out and their job for Nia inevitably becomes more complicated when Dean starts sniffing around the Grooming Hope truck — which was earlier Max's food truck.

Murphy, Jess and Felix stole and painted over the truck to use it as a mobile grooming salon for dogs to cloak the money they would be laundering for Nia.

In one shot of the trailer, we see Dean thinking that Nia's stash might be related to the truck. In another, we see him and his partner, Officer Gene Clemens (Matt Murray) open the door to the truck to see Felix and Murphy with a backpack. Have they been caught in the act?

'In the Dark' airs on The CW on Thursday nights at 9/8c. Watch the promo for this week's episode below:
