In 2015, it was revealed that Madeline Reeves and Ric Lansing were plotting together to acquire Nina's money and began having an affair after Ric married Nina. They had to make Nina seem crazy and on August 31, 2015 it is revealed that Madeline is the one who killed Silas by stabbing him in the back with a knife. Ric got Madeline to confess, and then revealed he was wearing a wire.
Madeline is arrested and brought down to the station. She claims that Ric set her up, and Nathan reveals that he was the one who got Ric to get her to confess. Madeline asks how could he do that to his mother, and Nathan says he is not her son. He tells Madeline that while she is in Pentonville, he wants her to remember he is the one who sent her there. The guards take Madeline downstairs, where she sees Nina still in lock up. She asks for a moment, and tells Nina that Ric and Franco are setting her up. Nina knows Madeline is lying, and lashes out at her for her cruelty. Madeline defends her actions by saying that Nina's money is her money, and that Nina's father should have left it to Madeline. Nina tells Madeline to think of how her greed was more important to her than her daughter, and screams that she hates Madeline. Madeline tears up, and Nina screams at the guard to take her away.
