John and Ops go outside, and John thanks Ops for waiting. Ops leaves. Kate hands John some papers to look over, then heads off to have dinner with Tony.

Belle apologizes to Tony and tells him that sometimes Cassie acts like a child. Shawn arrives, and Belle asks if he is following her. He asks if he can speak with her for a minute. Belle agrees and they go outside. Gabby begins explaining to Tony that the fighting is what they are looking for, as he looks like he could care less. She tells Tony that he should view the tapes, but he would rather not.

Cassie tells Tony that he and Gabby have a lot in common, and that Gabby created Love Is Blind. Cassie and Gabby decide to leave, and she says she hopes to meet him again. He replies "Oh, my god."

She tells him about doing another show after this one is over. It will be reversed, with one girl and three guys. Rex tells her that he will be sure to tune in.

Shawn tells Belle that what she is doing is making him crazy, and he wants her to stop doing this show now. Belle replies that she signed a contract, and it wouldn't be fair to the producers, Cassie, or Mimi. She tells him that the hunk seems really nice, and who knows what could happen if they have one date. Shawn asks if she saw the guy's face, and wonders what if the guy's face isn't - and Belle adds "What, perfect, like yours?"

He tells her to deny it all she wants, but she loves him, body, mind, and soul, just like he loves her. he promises that if they get back together, he will not make the same mistake again. Belle says that she needs to tell him something about "Love Is Blind." She begins to tell him, but backs down, saying that she signed a paper promising not to reveal anything about the show. Shawn convinces her to tell him, and she says she did some things to turn off the hunk. Shawn asks why, and she says because he is the only guy she wants to date. She says that she wants to get back together, but it has to be different this time.
John and Marlena arrive and are seated by Maggie. Marlena assumes that he met with Ops to try to bring down Tony, but he says they are working on a number of projects. He knows this is hard for her. Maggie seats Tony and Kate and John spots them. He asks Marlena if she knew they would be there. Tony leaves his table for a minute, while Maggie returns to John and Marlena and clears their plates. John tells Marlena she still didn't answer his question. She says she just likes the food there, but he tells her she didn't eat anything. He asks if her loss of appetite might have something to do with seeing Tony with Kate. Tony returns to his table without a coat, and tango music begins to play. He and Kate begin to tango, while John and Marlena watch. Roman arrives and sees them dancing. Marlena walks over to talk to him, but he doesn't want to talk.
