He introduces himself to her and she is polite to him but that is all. She isn’t waiting for anyone but was just passing through. She was looking in the window of the diner as she used to know someone that hung out there a lot. He tells her that the best Key Lime pie is in that diner that she was about to enter and that he would like to buy her some if only she would come inside with him and get a table. She seems like she is about to go in with the man, but Lucky comes and tells Summer that whatever Scottie is telling her, she doesn’t want to hear it.
Taggert catches up with Gia as she is about to throw the damning tape into the rushing waters at the dock.

Her sister tells her that she has been letting people hurt her. …”Why shouldn’t Sonny pay for everything that he has done?
