EJ says it's because his son is dead and as much as he hates what happened and that they all lied to him, he thinks it's better that they move on. Nicole questions if he really means it. EJ says losing something precious causes him to trace his steps back. EJ says the truth is if he hadn't slept with Sami then nothing would have come between he and Nicole so the loss would have never happened. EJ then exits the room.

Daniel sits with Nicole as Nicole talks about how EJ sounded so sincere and wonders if that's even possible. Daniel gets a call from Jennifer and rushes out of the room to take it.

Daniel admits that he does but says Jennifer is still mourning Jack so the point is moot. Daniel doesn't want to live his life pining over someone that he can't have.
