He notes that they weren't even a couple. Rafe takes a call confirming his reservation. EJ's interest is piqued.

They both agree she's strong and Melanie hopes this will make her feel more comfortable. She shakes his hand and they wish each other the best. She leaves her scarf behind as she goes and Nick finds it.
At the pub, Will gets a message from Sonny regarding their broken date. Marlena asks, "Is that your new dog whistle ring, the kind I can't hear?" He seems tense and admits what he overheard. She tells him he is good enough but Will says he's just like Sami. Marlena reminds him she's Sami's mom. "I must have really messed up," she says, grinning. She calls him his own man. He's a good man and a good speller. They share a laugh but Will says what goes on in his head isn't okay. Chad turns up and a waitress tells him she saw Nick going for a walk. He runs off. Marlena continues to commiserate with Will. She encourages him to return the guy's phone call. He won't do it. Sonny rushes in, saying there's been a misunderstanding.
