Hank says Luis is also talking about his father who left and never came back. Hank says that must mean that Luis was in love with Sheridan. Luis says he liked Sheridan more than any woman he's met in a long time, but love is a little strong. He says Sheridan probably hasn't given him a second thought, and maybe he should find a local girl that he has more in common with. He finishes his paperwork, and he and Hank go out for coffee. Right after they leave, a fax comes in from Interpol about how the French police are looking for anyone connected to Jean-Luc.

She leaves and Sheridan calls Jean-Luc (right after Roger and Pierre leave) and leaves a message on his answering machine. After calling home and talking to Julian, she goes out on the balcony and wonders why she is in Paris, the city of lovers.

Roger and Pierre return and get Sheridan's message on Jean-Luc's answering machine. They plot to kill Sheridan before she finds out that Jean-Luc is dead.
The Crane Cabin:
Chad and Ethan are watching the basketball game and they talk a little bit about Gwen. Chad asks what it's like to be in love and Ethan says it's great. Ethan says that Chad seems to like Whitney Russell, but Chad says they are too different. Ethan says that shouldn't matter...if he liked someone from a different social status, he'd date her. He says even though he and Gwen are both upper-class, they have their ups and downs. He explains the time that Gwen was jealous of another girl. The game is at half-time and Ethan and Chad head out to get some food.
At the ski lodge, Whitney is still mad at Theresa for forgetting about the reservations, but Theresa says the Crane cabin will make up for it. She also promises to not think about Ethan at all...by the time they get back, Theresa won't even know who Ethan is...even though no one could ever compare to him. Theresa asks Whitney about Chad, but Whitney says there's nothing going on. She says that this weekend will at least get her away from Chad. They take a cab to the cabin, and Whitney agrees that it is wonderful. Theresa goes to the fireplace and remembers the weekend she spent with Ethan. Whitney picks up a picture of Ethan and Gwen and shows it to Theresa. She says that this is who Ethan is marrying, so Theresa should get over it. Theresa agrees and they decide to go take showers before their big sleep over.
