Aaron is walking in Old Town and runs in to Alison. She asks what's bothering him and offers to listen if he'd like to share. Rather than talking about Cole and Sofie, Aaron tells Alison he isn't looking forward to Thanksgiving because of Holden and Lily's divorce and Luke's paralysis and the situation with Jack and Carly. Allie had no idea things were so hectic at the Snyder farm. She realizes that isn't all that is bothering Aaron, though, and asks for the rest of his story. They chat a bit more but Aaron doesn't tell her about Cole. Aaron leaves to grab some more cider and Cole steps up and begins flirting with Alison! He comes on to her, asking her to come have a real drink with him. Aaron sees - and hears! - everything Cole says! Allie shoots Cole down. When he is gone, Aaron tells her exactly who Cole is.

Carly is headed out of her house to find Katie. She runs into Gwen and tells her sister that she was going to give the settlement money to Katie! "This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of," Gwen says! She tells Carly that the best thing she can do is steer clear of both Jack and Katie for a while. They start walking and wind up in Old Town. Gwen leaves Carly outside the diner. Through the window Katie and Carly see one another! Gwen goes inside to try to keep things calm. Seeing Carly, Vienna and Henry ask her to stay out of the diner. Katie hurries to them and says its fine and Carly can come stay if she would like. Henry and Vienna return inside but Katie and Carly stay outside. Carly offers Katie the settlement check, which only makes Katie angry. She tells Carly that a payoff won't fix things between them and without letting Carly get a word in edgewise, says Jack deserves better but Carly will never let him have better. Katie goes back inside and Gwen comes out. She tells Carly maybe she should try giving the money to someone who doesn't hate her. That gives Carly an idea.
Carly stops by WOAK and runs in to Brad, who is picking up a few things before meeting Katie at the diner. She tries to give him the settlement check but Brad won't accept it. He tells her that he doesn't want any part of her schemes or her money any longer. He wants to be a better person! Carly leaves.

The sound techs turn it off but Katie asks them to let it play. Katie can't believe what she is hearing.
Gwen returns inside the diner and apologizes to Henry for her part in the Carly/Katie scene. He forgives her. She asks about Maddie and he says she won't be home for Thanksgiving.
