Carly then pulls back and makes a hasty exit when she spots Holden behind Lily. Holden asks her why she is here, and she tells him she hoped that Jack would recognize her, or maybe Holden needed her.

Jack tells Marty that all he wants is joint custody of Sage and visitation with Parker. Other than that, he wants nothing from Carly.

Jack tries to talk to her, but Carly can't face him for a moment, her body rigid as she fights a sob. Wiping her tears, she turns to Jack and admits she feels worse now than when he was presumed dead. She thinks about all she went through, including Parker's near-drowning to find him and the long search, only to end up finding him without any memory of the life they shared. She blasts him for giving up on them so easily. They were happy and they were not finished. She goes on to say her Jack would never quit or walk out on his family. He tries to justify his decision, but she says that if you don't know who you are, you can't decide to get married. He is throwing away the past that he has here, the family and the friends. Still, she refuses to give up; if he won't fight, she will fight for both of them.

Jack is still lost as Carly accuses him of cutting out on his family. When Jack asks if they always fought this way, Carly admits that most of the time they didn't fight, but when they did, watch out. This brings a smile to Jack's face, which amuses Carly. It eases the moment and Carly switches gears, trying to make him continue searching for his past. She knows it's a bad situation, but they have to keep going. Jack wants to be with Julia and J.J. and just move on. Carly thinks that is a bad idea, but Jack continues to ask her to accept his decision and let him go.

Julia tries to assure J.J. that Jack is fine and just having some tests, and then he will return to them. J.J. solemnly declares that if Jack remembers, he will leave them. Julia thinks not and tells him that Jack made a good decision for them today, and they will be together soon.

Carly refuses to believe Jack is lost to her. Jack believes his life is with Julia and J.J., but Carly can't accept it and won't let him go. They promised forever, she says, and she pleads with Jack to not give up. She is sure they need to stay married and fight, but regardless of what he says now, she will fight him until he sees the truth. As she pleads with him, Lily and Holden enter but turn to back out when Jack tells "Rose" not to leave.
