Then the conversation switches to Jen and Mike, and he says that they are not ready to move things to the next level. Katie is surprised, since he wanted a family badly when he was with her.
Craig is still trying to convince Jen that Mike wanting her at home and raising a family will cause her ambition to fade when a dejected Henry calls to tell him the plan is going well and that Katie is at the club with Mike.

Keith goes to see Holden to tell him to relay a message to Julia: she wont get away with keeping J.J. away from him again, he will make her pay.
