Julia adds that Jack had told her about being in the suite with Carly.

After expressing her deep resentment of Lily and her "charmed" life to Lucinda, Rose admitted that she was primarily upset because Lily had decided to get back together with Holden. Lucinda offered to give Rose a job at the City Times, introduce her to people, and help her with investments. Rose turned down Lucinda's generous offer and declared that it was time to pack her things and leave. Rose left in a huff, but only made it as far as the pool house, where she interrupted Bryant and Jennifer, who were in the midst of a romantic kiss.

Holden and Lily shared a little wine, as well as some tender moments in the stables. He told Lily that he had made a decision - he wasn't going to back to WOAK, but he planned to buy a couple of horses, start training them and see if he can turn them into winners. Lily was supportive and agreed that it sounded like a great idea. Lily made a rule that from then on, there would be no secrets between the two of them. Holden countered with two rules of his own - that they remain faithful to each other and that they always tell the truth. In a lighter moment, they decided to go skinny dipping in the Snyder pond.

Carly and Jake were finally introduced to each other when Carly went to Molly's apartment seeking advice from her cousin. After Jake left, Carly filled Molly in on the details of her relationship with Craig Montgomery. She happily described how Jack came to see her to warn her about Craig and his questionable business dealings. She insisted that the reason Jack warned her was because he was jealous of her relationship with Craig and still loved her. Carly hatched the "perfect" plan to reunite herself with Jack - she would go along with Craig's plan and make his delivery, but at the same time, she would also be an informant for Jack and the Oakdale Police Department. Molly warned Carly of the possible consequences of double-crossing Craig Montgomery. Carly brushed aside all of Molly's warnings and called Craig to advise that she changed her mind about delivering the microchips.
