He asks, "So. Did you um... was I ah? Was I?" Abby says, "Yes, and yes." Chad calls her a 'total pro'. He backtracks. It's not like she needed an instruction manual. They kiss.

Sonny arrives home to find Gabi asking Will what he expects. "It's the truth, Sami did pull a gun on him." Will points out that Nick threatened her first. He's just glad they're no longer married. Gabi wonders how many times Nick should apologize but Will says it doesn't matter, he'll never trust him. Gabi defends Nick. He couldn't commit perjury in court. Will has a sarcastic retort before going to his room. Sonny says at least Will doesn't know she had sex with Nick.
