Jake says he were but he got caught up and admits he forgot but it's fine because Amanda was busy too. Cara doesn't buy it. Jake tells her they have a give and take relationship and Amanda was cool with it. Cara accepts that and walks away.
JR thinks Amanda tightened up when he mentioned Cara. Amanda thinks they have different ways of getting what they want. JR says Amanda must have won since she is married to Jake.

Erica is at the hospital and looks at Jack's picture on the auction wall. Caleb comes in and says that he sees she wasted no time. Erica asked if he tracked her down here.

Cara asks Griffin what is wrong with going out one night with Kendall. Griffin brings up that Kendall is a widow and he's starting to feel responsible for Zach's death. Cara thinks it's ridiculous. Griffin says he's the one that convinced Zach to fund the Miranda Centers. Griffin mentions that he pushed him to sell the casinos and now they probably killed him.
