At the casino apartment, Kendall wakes from a bad dream and Zach is there to comfort her. He has a plan for the day, something to remind them of what they are fighting for. Intrigued, Kendall asks for a hint, but Zach won't give an inch. A little while later, Zach and Kendall arrive at his surprise - he's rented a bowling alley! Kendall isn't sure about the plan because bowling isn't really her thing. Zach turns on a disco ball and music and hands over a brand new pair of bowling shoes. "You bowl me over," Zach says, working on something as Kendall tries to bowl. Every time she swings her arm, he says something else. Finally he shows Kendall what he has been working on. It's a score card without a score. Instead, it reads, "Always, Only You". The two kiss. After finishing the game - and winning - Kendall asks where her prize is. Zach asks if being with him is prize enough, but Kendall doesn't buy it. She knows him too well! Smiling, Zach pulls something from his pocket and holds his hand out. It's empty, but Kendall doesn't see it that way. She believes his empty hand is actually an open hand. It's a reflection of opening his heart to her, his acceptance of her and his reminder that they will have a life together. What about his other hand, Zach asks, the hand that is still closed? He opens his hand to reveal a diamond necklace! Moments later, a bodyguard delivers an envelope for Kendall. It's a cute valentine's card from Spike, with a picture of Spike enclosed. The thought that Ryan cared enough to send it touches Kendall's heart. Zach leads Kendall in a dance and kisses her passionately.
