Aiden tells Hope that his text was about Clyde. Hope notes that he got upset when she brought up Clyde earlier.

Aiden claims there is an old business competitor who has a grudge against Clyde in Missouri and has been bad mouthing him for years but there is no truth behind the rumors.

Hope tells Aiden that she's glad it's finally over with Clyde for them. Hope jokes that she arrests the criminals and he defends them but what's really important is the trust they share. Aiden agrees. Hope can't express how important that is to her. Hope talks about taking it for granted which is what happened with Bo when their son died and he lied to her so it took her years to trust him again. Hope apologizes as he never thought Bo would just walk out of their lives. Hope says after having her trust shattered like that, she never thought she could love someone again until Aiden came along. Hope adds that trusting someone again was scarier than loving someone again but she trusts him after everything. Hope brings up Aiden sharing his biggest secret and says she would never betray that. Aiden asks if this means they can forget about Clyde and concentrate on them. Hope responds that there's nothing she would rather do.
