Nina knows that Nathan didnt like Valentin at all. He kept reminding her that Valentin broke her heart. Nathan gave his blessing though. He would rather see her happy than be right. He was the only thing good of that horrible family of hers. That penthouse in New York was hell. It was like a hall of statues. Nothing was real except Nathan. Nathan was warm and love. She thinks everything about her physically hurts right now. Valentin promises he is here for her.
Faison asks if Nathan is really gone. Peter says thanks to him. Peter guesses he is so old and frail he didnt even recognize his own son. Peter waited a long time after all those years. All the while he was playing Faison. Peter feels amazing. He has the memories of Jason and Drew on a flash drive. He thanks Faison from the bottom of his heart. He set him up beautifully. Peter thinks living well is the best revenge. Peter is spending all Faisons money. It isnt enough though. The real revenge is that he killed the son he wanted while the one he hates is alive and well.
Valentin suggests they get out and go home. They can go and cherish what they have. Nina tells Valentin she loves him. Valentin loves her too.
