Ava can't believe that Lily is actually touching her. "You're the only person that I've ever really cared about," she says, still feeling bad for the things that have been going on. Jonathan rings the doorbell, surprising them. Lily opens the door as Ava hides behind a wall. Lily tries to head off Jonathan but he insists on seeing Ava. Lily holds him off by telling what Ava said - that he was really making love to Lily when he was with Ava. Ava steps out from the corner. Her new look shocks Jonathan. He wonders what the new 'do will do to her job at Fusion. "I make my own decisions," she says. Jonathan offers to drive her to the office but she refuses. He tries to get her alone but she doesn’t want to talk to him at all. She asks him to leave but Jonathan won't go. The way he did when she was turned down for the Fusion contract, he points out the ways she is different from Lily. "I care about you," he says when she asks why he touched her differently when she came home looking like Lily. From across the room, Lily begins counting back from 100. Neither of them can calm Lily down. She stops counting and leaves for her room. Jonathan starts to follow but stops when Ava lashes out at him. "Go! Save the woman you really want," she says, getting more angry by the second when Jonathan doesn't go after Lily. He tells her that the night before was about her, not about Lily. "When I touch you, Ava, I know exactly who I'm touching," he says and reaches out to her. Scared, Ava backs away and then runs from the house.
