Charlie then replies to Rex that he has no business judging Jared. Rex then asks Charlie why he would defend Jared when he does not know him. In another corner, Marcie and Layla are wondering why it is that Jared went off on Rex. Was it in regard to Gigi or is there something else involving competition of those two guys? And is Rex really over Gigi when he has such a strong opinion about Jared after seeing that Gigi might be interested in him?
When Blair and Todd are at the house, stalling about returning to their event, Blair asks Todd why he wants to keep Cole away from their daughter forever. He tells her that he knows that their daughter can find other guys and get over Cole. She tries to get him to leave. But he tells her maybe they should stay there and have sex on Dorians couch. She then tells him she has something to tell him. Cole hides while Blair tries to make him unseen by Todd. She tells Todd that they need to talk about something. She needs to reveal something that he may not approve of. He asks her what that could be and makes jokes. She tells him that she bought Capricorn. He tells her he wants her to undo that. But she informs him that she bought it with all of her own money. Its her own decision and she doesnt need his permission.

He does not see Cole quite yet, however. And they leave the living room so that Cole cannot be seen by Todd.
At the diner, Charlie asks Rex why he is so judgmental about Jared. Is he jealous that Gigi is moving on and might be interested in another guy? Rex tells his father no. Natalie then takes Jared aside and tells him that he could get into trouble as there is a strict sexual harassment policy at B.E. He must realize that Gigi is a single mom and maybe she is not the person he should be considering especially when he works with her.

Then she takes Carlotta over and introduces her to Charlie.. Rex then departs and tells Charlie he will see him at the next game. He is very happy and friendly to Charlie. Jared observes them coldly.

Jared knows his behavior was not appropriate and he wont mess around with people he works with.
While Gigi sits behind the counter, she asks Layla why it is that Adriana is so protective of Rex if she has this great relationship with him. And why does Rex care if she (Gigi) might move on with other guys? Layla does not answer that and looks at her suspiciously. Gigi turns to Marcie who might be able to shed some light.

At the diner, Jared asks Gigi if they can talk. Marcie knows they want to be alone so she excuses herself.
Talia asks Antonio why he was offended by her talking to John. He then tells her this is not Cherryvale where she can quit and return, then quit and return. He tells her that his advice is that she takes her job a little more seriously.
In Ramsey’s office, he tells John that he would like him to be spending time on more important issues that kidnapped cats. But he laughs and tells John that he thinks that he and Talia might be a good team and work well together. He then implies to John that John has a “record” where women end up dead all around him. Both Caitlin and Marty died. So John could be seen as the “kiss of death."
Starr is happily reunited with Cole for the first time since Todd caught them at Langstons old house. And she clarifies to him that when she wrote that letter that they cannot see each other again, it was only because of fear of what her dad could do. She could never leave him. Right then, Blair rushes into the room and asks them if they know what they have just put themselves at risk for. She tells them that they better not pull anything remotely like it ever again.

In Ramsey’s office, he tells John that if John makes one “mistake," Ramsey will nail him and take his badge.
Blair tells Starr and Cole that they better realize what Todd could do. Cole asks if she means that Todd could falsely accuse him of rape? That couldnt happen. They didnt even have sex and Todd would not have a case. Starr tells Cole no. Not rape. Theres something else Todd could get him in trouble for. Blair explains that Todd intends to get Cole convicted for shooting Miles Laurence if he catches him with Starr again. And Ramsey would be only too happy to help him do that. Right then, Todd comes down the stairs and notices Langston guarding the door. He demands she gets out of his way. When she refuses, he pushes her aside and goes through the door. At that point, Cole just barely manages to sneak out the door so that Todd cannot see him. He enters to see Blair and Starr and asks the two of them what they are “hiding."
Jared tells Gigi that he realizes that they maybe should not be socializing when they work together. Natalie tells her mother and Charlie she has to get back to work. And she happily encourages them to enjoy their date. Charlie tells Viki that he wants to tell her everything there is to know about him. But now, hed like nothing more than to take her on a walk in the moonlight. He kisses her. Rex goes and finds Gigi and tells her hes sorry if he embarrassed her. She responds by asking him why she would be embarrassed. It was he who made a jackass of himself and caused a scene in public. And she asks him why he would have a problem with her seeing Jared. Arent they done? And isnt Rex getting married?
Dorian tells Adriana she will apologize to Rex. Adriana tells her mother that she better keep her word. If she does anything to prevent Adriana from marrying Rex on May 9, Adriana will go away and Dorian will never see her again. She can go to Paris and marry John Pierre. At that point, she gets Dorian concerned that John-Pierre might take advantage of her daughter. Adriana tells her mother that if she cannot have Rex and she needs to recover her broken heart," then it wont matter who she ends up with. But, she clarifies, that wont happen. Will it? She confirms to her mother that she (Dorian) will make certain that nothing prevents their wedding from happening on May 9.
In response to Todds inquiry about what Blair and Starr are secretly discussing, Blair tells him she told Starr that they just arranged to stay home in order to be there for her. At that point, Blair dismisses Starr and Langston. As soon as the two girls are gone and Blair is alone with Todd, she tells him that he might want to seriously consider that absence only makes the heart grow fonder. So maybe he should reconsider his ban on Starr seeing Cole. But Todd tells Blair that his decision is final that Cole is never to see their daughter again. Upstairs, Starr tells Langston she is very worried about her dad getting Cole nailed for shooting Miles Laurence. Yet she cannot accept never being with Cole again. Langston hugs her.
At the diner, Jared tells Natalie that he is happy to be part of her family. But there is something else he wants to tell her.
Layla goes to talk to Adriana. She informs her that Rex and Jared got into a fight at the diner. Adriana asks what they fought about. Layla replies it was over Gigi. Overhearing that, Dorian is a lot more intrigued by that than her daughter is. Layla tells the two of them that she doesnt want to get in the middle of this. But she is concerned that Rex might still have feelings for Gigi. Adriana tells her that is quite alright. Gigi will no longer be an issue. And she looks at Dorian, asking her to confirm that Gigi will never be the issue that could break up Adriana and Rex. Dorian knows how she must respond to that.
