He instructs Natalie to turn their phones off then puts Liam down for a nap. When he returns, Natalie lashes out at John for not admitting he loved her. She needs to know John will fight for her. He wonders why Natalie never let on she knew. She had lied to him and didn't trust John enough to tell him the truth. Can he forgive her? John admits Natalie hurt him and knows he hurt her too.

Starr apologizes and knows James is right. She rushes into James' arms and cries, "I'm going to miss you so much. I'm sorry." James never meant to make her cry and sobs, "I'll never forget you, Twinkle." She'll never forget him either. Knowing James wants a clean break, Starr leaves.
