Courtney suggests that she tries her hand at fishing, seeing that Jax’s attempt was less than successful. She ends up falling in the lake, getting herself all wet, and Jax having to rescue her. She orders him to turn around as she changes, but he still sneaks a peek. They continue their friendly, sarcastic comments around a campfire.
Lorenzo shows up at the L&B studios, confused about why Lois would call him back, since she’s made it clear that she doesn’t want him to have anything to do with owning the studio. Lois tells him that actually, she called him to talk about Sage’s career, and that she wants to represent Sage, but still doesn’t want Lorenzo to have anything to do with L&B. Lois explains that she thinks Sage is really talented and wants to represent Sage, but that Sage was in the studio without supervision and shouldn’t have been. Lois says she is willing to forgive and look past that, if L&B can represent Sage. Lorenzo answers that the only way that will happen is if he remains involved and stays in control of her career. Lois sets out to convince Lorenzo otherwise, and he complements her on her negotiation skills. He is clearly impressed, probably more so by Lois herself as a woman, rather than Lois’ pitch. Lorenzo agrees to think about it. Ned walks in to find them exchanging friendly banter, and is confused about seeing Lois “fraternizing” with Lorenzo. Lois confirms that she’s made Sonny take Lorenzo’s name off the L&B books, but she explains that she is interested in Sage’s talent. She has a strategy on how to convince Sage to sign with L&B. She explains to Ned that she is gonna bust Sage and Trent for rehearsing in the studio late at night, calling it reverse psychology, saying that Sage is gonna fight for a chance to stick around L&B studios.

Jason shows up at Emily’s, and Rick is there waiting for him. He orders Jason to tell him where Sam is, if he doesn’t want to be considered her accomplice and also go to jail. He suggests that Jason tells him the truth, so that, when Sam goes to jail, at least Jason can be there to raise Sam’s daughter, rather than both Jason and Sam being in jail.
