She says Diane knows how to press her buttons. She didn’t want to hurt Jack. It felt good to stick it to Diane but Jack was hurt. Amanda urges her to talk to him and stop blaming Diane.
Start taking responsibility for her own actions. Own her mistake. “Fight.” Phyllis nods but then blames Diane for her reverting to her old ways. She hyperventilates and Amanda says she can’t help but backslide.
Change takes time. It’s a momentary slip. She asks if Phyllis will try to hold her relationship together and Phyllis looks like a deer caught in the headlights.
At the manse, Kyle asks what’s up with him and Phyllis. Jack says it’s none of his business. They had a minor disagreement. They’ll find their way through it.
Kyle notices that they’re no longer casual and that it wasn’t just a spat. “Are you back together?” Jack says they’re not together in any meaningful sense. Kyle presses.

Allie talks about how overwhelming it is to stay in a house filled with people but she likes it. She thinks Harrison is adorable, and Summer is welcoming. She’s grateful.
She doesn’t miss LA which only reminds her of her dad. She has her master’s and needs to think about the rest of her life. Diane laughs and calls it daunting.
Traci urges her to stay and take her time. Diane thinks Jack must be over the moon with the family all under the room. Traci says they’re all grateful to have Allie in their lives. Diane shrugs and eats a cookie.

She admits she apologized to Allie for her own agenda when they first met. Traci’s glad she didn’t pull any punches. Diane’s glad they have a connection. Traci laughs. She thinks Diane’s going over the top. But she can also tell she’s trying. “Keep it up!”
Outside, Noah and Allie talk about luxury of choosing happiness over a steady paycheck. She was raised to fight for her own career and that’s what she took from the podcast. She admits she hasn’t a goal and it’s freaking her out.
She’s drifting and rethinking what she should do. She’ll make some lists to figure it out. He’s the opposite.
He follows his instincts. He wonders if the message The Grinning is about wildly diverging paths to success and happiness and the mission is to choose the path that works for you. She denies it with a laugh. “You missed the point.”
At the office, Victoria and Nikki are back from their spa. Nikki asks pointedly if her daughter was able to get Ashland out of her system. Victoria suddenly feels jet lagged and doesn’t want to talk about Ashland.
She goes to sit, putting her cane down beside her. Nikki puts on the pressure. Did it work? Victoria admits she’s running from her messy and complicated feelings which confuse her.
She has to face the sadness, the pain and humiliation and learn to live with it. She doesn’t think her family trusts her. Nikki texts Victor that they’re at the office and she’s not sure the trip worked. Victor reads the text, then takes a call.
Ashland drinks alone at his suite at Grand Phoenix. He gets the door to a man who has an envelope for him. He reads it and downs his drink before picking up his jacket and taking off.
Ashland finds himself at Victor’s office. He knows Victor was behind the paper he received. Victor thinks the boy needs protection from him. Ashland calls it a farce. Victor says it’s a judge’s order.
If he violates it, he’ll end up in jail. He thinks maybe Locke should violate it. They’ll all enjoy seeing him behind bars. Ash tries to tell him he was changed by Victoria’s love. “Will you stop that sentimental crap?” Vic asks.
He yells that Ashland has no idea what remorse is. He’s desperate. Victor knows why he married his daughter and claims he knew all along. He screams to get the money he gave him and get the hell out of town.
He punctuates his sentence by smashing his hand on the desk. Ashland says his kid still has a bond with him. He warns that the more Victor tries to push her away from him, the more he risks alienating her. Vic says the man is pressing his luck. He kicks him out.
Victor meets Victoria and Nikki in her office. Nikki hugs his wife. “My baby.” Victoria walks in and hugs her dad. She says she had a flare up which is why she’s using the cane, still. He tells them he just saw Ashland.
Back at his suite, Ashland recalls Victor telling him to take the money and run. He goes to pack.

Sharon squeals as she sees Mariah and Tessa arrive from their honeymoon. They embrace.
In his suite, Ashland sits with Victoria, both in their robes. She wants to get away with him. This time, she doesn’t want to just fantasize about it. She wants to do it. He’s happy about this.
Phyllis is surprised. “You’re done. After all of this. This is the end?”
Jack tells her, Yeah, this is the end. Goodbye.”
