He says there's nothing to forgive. He can see she's been drinking and asks her out to dinner. After all, she's drinking on an empty stomach. He doesn't want her falling on her butt on stage. Erica says she'd rather stay in her room and enjoy the view. Zach says it would help if she opened the blinds. She winces when the light shines in the room. Zach tells her he's concerned about her.

He knows she, her daughters and her half brother Mark in Tokyo are the survivors. He asks if she's talked to her daughters about this. Erica says she doesn't want to talk about this. She tells him not to shrink her. She pours another drink but he stops her, saying she doesn't need it. He pushes her away and she tells him not to touch her. He says he's cutting her off.
