He offers to prove that he’s really there.

She reminds him of her brownies and he points out they come out of a box.

They go to the kitchen and he eats Joss’ leftovers before toasting his return and kisisng.

She thought he was staying on in Australia but he says that he got impatient dealing with board members and decided to leave it to someone else to handle it.

Carly doesn’t think that sounds like him at all.

He asks if she’s been reflecting for New Year’s. He’s realized he fell into a role he’s not comfortable with: being a peace-keeper.

That’s not working for him anymore. Ned got him sent to prison.

Carly loved how kind and generous he is. Drew is reaching his limits. His forgiving nature only got him months in prison.

She points out that they haven’t talked about his time in prison. He’s different.

carly and drew talk trip

She brings up the situation with Scout’s school. He’s sure it’s the right choice.

Carly just worries that he went through hell and it changed him. She doesn’t want him to go through it alone.

carly worries about drew

If he ever needs her, all he has to do is ask. He hears her and appreciates her.

Just knowing she is there for him is all he needs. If he needs any support, he will come to her.

He suggests they try making some resolutions they can keep, like more time in bed.

drew and calry talk resolutions

They kiss and he goes off to start a fire. She tells himself he will be okay.

The phone starts ringing.

When he returns, she explains the embassy in Amsterdam just called. Her mom is dead.

carly learns bobbie dead

At the penthouse, Sam (temporarily played by Lindsay Hartley) and Dante stand on the balcony and watch the fireworks. This is both where they want to be.

He picks her up and carries her in to bed. Before they can get in, Scout bursts in and declares she had a bad dream.

scout interrupts parents

He gets her some ginger ale and she tells them her nightmare was about the new school and her teacher being a monster.

Her mom assures her she doesn’t have to go if she doesn’t want to.

sam dante interrupted

Once they get Scout back to bed, they discuss what the kid is going through. She was reluctant to agree to this at first, but now that she sees how upset she is, she won’t let her go.

The detective respects that but wonders how Drew will react. She says he will have to accept it.

damte sam talk drew

She realizes she just made a unilateral decision without consulting the other parent but doesn’t know what else to do.

She’s used to making all the decisions on her own. She and Drew were in step before he came back from Pentonville.

Dante is sure he’s just trying to move on faster than he should.

She worries that she just made a big mistake by telling her daughter that she wouldn’t have to go to the school without discussing it with Drew first.

sam wonders if she made mistake

The cop thinks Drew has put them in a rough spot but she should trust her instincts. She thanks him for having her back. They kiss.

BLQ and Chase sneak into the Quatermaine estate while it’s empty. She grabs some champagne.

blq pours chamagne

He assumes they were going to take it and run but she insists on staying and starts complaining about the “swill” they serves at that “dive bar” The Savoy.

chase and blq at quarterrmaines

He gets a text. It’s photos of his dad skydiving. They giggle as they look at them.

That’s the man he grew up with. He never thought he’d see him like that again.

Before the ALS, it never would have occurred to him to go skydiving. He’s really making the most of his life.

blq chase look at photos on phone

The cop doesn’t want to bring their night down by talking about this. She toasts to him and they kiss.

She prompts him to toast to her. He doesn’t know where to start.

He tells her how beautiful, talented, and kind she is. She makes him feel like he can do anything.

Before they can kiss, he gets a call and has to go on police business.

blq chase talk nye

He leaves and she polishes off the champagne.

At the pier, Ned and Olivia notice that Lois and Sonny haven’t made it over from The Savoy. They rush off to find them.
