Jack arrives home and Carly tries to get him to talk about what happened. Jack is very distant and barely says a word. Carly continues to push and Jack tells her that he cant live like this anymore. Carly is terrified of what Jack is going to say next. He tells that their marriage is over. Carly pretends that he doesnt mean it, and tries to talk about how they can work things out, but Jack seems exhausted and tired. Carly promises that she will never do the things that she has done again. Jack angrily asks Carly if she thought about what would happen to the children if she messed up her probation and got sent to prison. Carly admits that she didnt think at all. Jack tells her that the problem is that she never thinks. Carly promises to never interfere with his job again. Jack seems pretty clear that he cant deal with it anymore. It is breaking him up inside, visibly. Carly tells Jack that she knows that he loves her. Jack says that he does love her and that is part of the problem. He looks sad and says that he is the problem. He feels like he is not exciting enough for her and that is why she comes up with all of these adventures. Jack tells her that their marriage is over, but Carly does not want to hear it. She yells at Jack that he promised to love her and stay with her until death. Carly gets in his face and says that it was ok for him to break the rules in order to protect her and cover up what she did, and he is a hero, but when she tried to protect him by breaking the rules, he walks out on her. She then makes off the wall comments about Jack having another woman. Jack looks at her, shaking his head, and tells her that she knows that is not true. Carly brings up Julia and the fact that she is now raising her son. Carly says that she is the bad girl that Jack married, thinking that he could tame her, and gets upset when she shows her true colors. Jack goes upstairs to pack and Carly meets him in the staircase. She begs and pleads with him not to leave her, but there is nothing else that he can say. He tells her that they both deserve better than this. Carly breaks down, and Jack holds her for a brief second and kisses her head, before going to pack. Carly sits at the desk by the door, looking at the family photos. Jack comes downstairs with his bag. The house is quiet, and Carly is quiet. She hands Jack something that parker drew for him. It is Jack as his hero. She tells him that he is her hero to. Before Jack leaves, Carly hands him the compass and tells him that if she cant stop him from leaving, then she hopes that the compass will lead him back to her. Jack turns red and a tear sheds down his face. He chokes as he tells her that he wants to be her true north, but he doesnt think he can. They agree that they will discuss how to tell the kids tomorrow, and in the meantime, Jack will be at Emmas house. Jack leaves. In a second, Carly runs out the door, screaming his name, and falls to the floor in devastation and tears.
