She admits she’s heard him wake up from nightmares before. He’s sorry he’s waking up “the whole house.” She asks if he has considered therapist or talking to Sharon. He has and says he would if he thought it was necessary. Being with her and Dom is what will get him through this. They kiss and head upstairs to make love.

He wants to ensure they know they’re on the same team. Amanda says if the judge doesn’t rule in their favour, they may not allow him to see Dom. Devon doesn’t believe they’d do that. He has to do right by Dominic but wants to go through with it.
