He goes and Rey gets a text. Michael wants to see him.
Tara finds Summer in the park. She’s glad to hear that Summer and Harrison connected and was glad to hear that she and Kyle are planning on marrying. Summer says Kyle will still make Harrison his number one person. Tara seems thankful and when Summer leaves, Sally turns up. Tara tries to take off but Sally begs for five minutes. She knows Tara’s set her sights on Kyle. Sally saw the look on Tara’s face when Summer talked about resuming wedding plans. Tara thinks Sally’s talking crazy. Sally’s not judging. She’s got a way to get Summer out of the way, out of both of their lives. All she has to do is make Summer want to take a job out of town. Tara smiles and asks how she’s supposed to do that. Sally needs her to get Kyle to fall back in love with her. Tara says nothing and Sally says, “You’re intrigued at least.” Tara’s not sure why she’s bothering to listen. “Your plan is ridiculous” She has no time to play these games. She’ll forget they had the conversation. “Please, leave me alone,” she says. Sally invites her to call if she changes her mind.
At Society, Ashland is upset by news on a call. Victoria comes by and he apologizes that he has to fly back to New York. He invites her to fly with him for dinner in Manhattan.
