In the club dining room, Dina tells Graham about her meeting with Jack. Naturally he lashed out. Of the three children, she was always closest to Jack and she hurt him deeply. Ashley, on the other hand, was Daddys girl. Graham is ready to listen whenever Dina wants to discuss her relationship with Ashley, or anything else for that matter.
