After Hayden has officially married Nikolas with the justice of the peace in Las Vegas, a guy named Baxter Corbin comes by, sees her and calls her Rachel. She looks at him stunned and not happy. Nikolas overhears and tells the stranger he's sorry. He must have Nikolas' wife confused with someone else. Her name is not Rachel, Nikolas tells him. Baxter replies, smiling, by asking, "Since when?" The guy tells them he heard they just tied the knot, offers congratulations and wishes them good luck. As soon as they are alone, Nikolas asks his new wife whom that was. She smiles and replies apparently someone who thinks she is someone he knows and who does not know her real name. She tells Nikolas he's done so much for her. She wants to give him something in return. He's her husband, she reminds him and she wants to show him how much he means to her. They talk about spending an intimate evening together while she realizes she needs to get Nikolas to leave before she does so that she can talk to her acquaintance alone. As soon she is alone and the guy is nearby, Hayden tells him they need to talk. He then appears as though he does not know her but she makes it clear that she wants him to leave her alone and not tell anyone he saw her there.
Valerie and Dillon go together to The Floating Rib. He assesses after all she's been through recently, he wants the two of them to enjoy themselves together as friends.

They go over to play pool when they run into Curtis who tells them he was next and they have to wait. Dillon sits it out while Curtis and Valerie play pool. Not far away, Maxie and Lulu enter. While he's alone watching Valerie play pool with Curtis, he finds Lulu and asks if she might not be comfortable in the same establishment with Valerie. Lulu rationalizes that this is a public place and she realizes Valerie has the right to be there. Yet he has his concerns that she might not be ok with the situation and given all that has happened recently in her life. Maxie tells Lulu they need to go somewhere else although Lulu tells her that is not necessary. However, Maxie is able to see that Dante and Nathan have just walked into the bar.

She had to resort to drastic action and blame Valerie for the failure of her marriage and mutual lack of trust they had. Lulu admits to Valerie that she was unfair. Valerie tells her that is an understatement. Not only did Lulu almost cost Valerie her job.

Yet he tells them that someone should be able to have fun tonight and it should be the two of them. So, as he gets up to leave, he encourages them to enjoy each others' company on him. Curtis tells Valerie there is no point in her winning this game again. She asks why. He tells her since her friend just left with her cousin.
