After checking on
When Al mentions making love, Jen shushes him and says Cristian is home. Cristian immediately appears to confront them. Jen's eyes fill with tears. She pretends he's talking about what happened at the quarry last November. Although Al plays along, Cristian is suspicious. To add insult to injury, Jen informs Al they're getting married. This shocks Al, who wants confirmation from Cristian. Getting that, he mentions how sudden this is. Jen says it's none of his business, as Cristian tries to tell him about the pregnancy. Jen stops him from spilling the beans, simply saying they're marrying for love. Al wants to know what Cristian was trying to say, but Jen insists on taking him outside so they can speak privately. Al congratulates her. Jen tells him she never wants him to come near her again, for any reason. There's absolutely nothing connecting the two of them.

Since Sam wants to talk to her, she agrees to call him tomorrow to try to set something up. Cristian wants to know why she told her mother but won't tell anyone else, especially Al.
