Jen watches Cristian defend, compliment, comfort, and gently disagree with Natalie. Cristian asks Natalie to stay for the picnic and after she declines, Jen asks to speak to her alone. She warns her to stay away from Cristian.

And because I've been busy and forgot to do so earlier, I'd like to take a moment to tell you and all the fans how proud I am of our show and all the people who contribute to it, from actors/actresses to the higher ups and not so higher ups, etc, for making it daytime television's very best, and the award just adds the icing to the cake. Tanks OLTL for being the best. Laura Tesler
