Simone walks into Greenlee's office. Greenlee tells her that she knows Simone was lying about having dinner with her father. She heard the mystery man's voice and it was familiar. She asks Simone who it was. Greenlee says she must know him, otherwise why would Simone not identify him. Simone tells Greenlee to let it go because she's not serious about the man. Greenlee agrees, and takes Simone somewhere that will cause her to think about the man. They are next shown each wearing a wedding gown in Greenlee's office. Simone says that after seeing her parents divorce, she didn't think she would ever get married. Greenlee says being in love will turn anyone into a raving optimist. Greenlee again turns to the subject of the mystery man. She concludes that the reason Simone won't identify him is that he's married. She tells Simone to be careful and be discreet. Leo walks in and Simone leaves. Greenlee asks him where he's been. He tells her he was doing things for their wedding. Leo leaves, unknowingly dropping his visitor's name badge from Oak Haven. Greenlee picks it up. "How could you do this to me," she says. Leo returns later and Greenlee tells him he has one more chance to tell her the truth.
