All Viki can remember is that she and Clint had had a terrible argument. Clint feels guilty that that might have been the cause for Niki's emergence.
Nash congratulates Tess for warding off Jessica and staying in control. Tess insists that the only reason that she could stay in control was because he was there with her. Tess is afraid that any day now they will have their last conversation or kiss. Nash encourages her to fight.
