He doesn't think she has to. Alexis speaks privately with Sam. Sam is sure it is the right thing to do since Jason would do the same thing. She announces to everybody that she's going to do it. Alexis takes care of the formalities. Lucy asks TJ what's going on between him and Molly. She tells him Shawn's advice is smart but understands TJ's reservations over Rafe being close to Molly.
