Abigail was genuinely trying to talk to Adam nicely, but that is clear that she canít do that if Nick is concernedÖIsaac comes to talk to Ben who now thinks after a second thought that he should forget about Bonnie. She is too high maintenance. She has kissed him once and Isaac is already losing his mind. That is the third time that he has cleaned that glass that he has in his hand.
Abigail goes to see Nick and she learns that Jake has been there. Abigail thinks that this is insane. People should trust her and believe her judgement in people.
