"6 A.M." is the ninth episode of Forever. It aired on November 18, 2014.
"Harlem's jazz community serves as the backdrop for a musical murder probe dealing with the rights to a legendary jazz hit, "6 A.M." Whoever legitimately penned the chartbuster would be set for life, providing a classic motive. Therefore, jazz history is on the line when Henry and Jo investigate the murder of jazz saxophonist Pepper Evans' son. Simultaneously, bittersweet memories come flooding back to Henry, Jo and Pepper as they reflect on their father-child relationships. Meanwhile Henry, always a big fan of classical music, and Abe, a jazz enthusiast since he was a youngster, have a keyboard face-off as Abe tries to teach Henry to appreciate a new, more emotional kind of music."

- "No matter how we live or die, we all end the same -- in silence. All of our hopes and dreams in life become mere echoes of a tale cut short. But if we're lucky enough, our stores live on. Our song finds voice in the hearts of those who remember us and loved us." —Henry
- "It has been said that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken, that we are only truly gone when we've disappear from the memories of those who loved us, meaning a great artist never dies. As long as his books are read, his paintings admired, as long as our songs are sung, may each of us live forever. As for me, maybe its time to learn a new song. Fortunately, I have an excellent teacher." —Henry
In the deleted scenes, we learn Jo's past and her father's criminal background. We learn that his name is Victor Martinez Jr, and apparently has been behind bars for a while. Jo is looking for him on the NYPD data search base and we can see his face.
