The doctor feels bad and wishes he’d done better for her. His daughter needs some kind of family and he doesn’t know how he can take that away from her.

His father reminds him that he still loves Liz. There’s still the chance they could salvage their relationship.

Back at the nurses’ station, Portia reminds Liz that neither she nor Finn have RSVP’d for the wedding.

She insists that he’s being driven to do this against his will and demands to know who is behind this.

Getting more distraught, she demands to know why he’s changed his mind.

The prince claims he is still a faithless man and blurts out that he had an affair with Liz.

Ava demands details but he won’t give them. She wonders if he was stuck in her “bottomless pit of need.”

He announces that she is pregnant with his baby. Nikolas can’t fail another child.

She looks at the sharp letter opener on her desk. Picking it up, she stabs the divorce paper into the wall.

Telling him to go and be a daddy, she reminds him she could have killed him.

He hates that it is like this.

She warns that it could get far, far worse.

“God have mercy on you, you’ll get none from me,” she says.

He walks out. She weeps.
