Katie confronts Brad, angrily asking him why he tried to convince her that Jack was going to propose. Brad tries to convince her that he didn't do anything and that Vienna is lying but Katie doesn't back down. "Pull one more stunt and I will make your life a living hell," she says! Vienna leaves them alone. Brad finally admits what he did and tries to apologize but Katie doesn't want the same old same old. She wants to know why he has been acting this way. Brad tells her he has been trying to break up her relationship with Jack because of his own feelings for her. She demands to know exactly how Carly was involved in his plans! Brad swears Carly had nothing to do with his plan but Katie doesn't believe him. She tells him to give Carly a message - stop messing with Jack! She walks away, telling him that his sorries won't make things better this time.
Jack is stunned by Carly's "I love you" revelation and doesn't know what to say. He brings up friendship, annoying Carly because she doesn't want to be just friends. She tells him again that she loves him and then kisses him! Jack puts some space between them, deciding it is time to talk. He brings up their past and their connections, but tells her that he is finished with the way things were! He doesn't want her back, he wants his new life! Carly insists that they can be happy again but Jack doesn't want the same old roller coaster ride they have always been on. She tells him that she has changed and that she isn't the same person she was before. "I'm over you, Carly," he says. Carly doesn't believe him, even after he tells her that he's in love with Katie. "What Katie and I have is good. It's healthy," he says. Still Carly won't listen to him. Jack turns to leave but Carly stops him. "You look me in the eye and tell him you love her the way you loved me," Carly says. He admits that his feelings aren't exactly the same. Things are better because with Katie he doesn't have to deal with the extremes that he has to deal with when he is with Carly. Angry, Carly lashes out. Jack walks away.
Jack goes to the stationhouse. Vienna walks in, offering him a deal - help her and help Katie. Vienna lets Jack know exactly what Brad has been up to.

They talk about the things they haven't said and Jack intimates that he has deep feelings for her. Katie pulls back a little, telling him that he doesn't have to say anything because of what happened with Brad and Carly.
Brad heads to Carly's, both are annoyed but Carly quickly moves from annoyed to angry. Brad stops her in her tracks when he tells Carly that Katie is on to their plans! She gets even more angry, this time at Brad because he is the one with all the backfiring, bright ideas. Brad assures her that he kept her name out of things but Carly doesn't believe things will be okay. Brad surprises Carly when he tells her that Katie has real feelings for Jack and tells Carly to back off! She tells him to leave but Brad keeps talking. She interrupts, telling Brad that she told Jack she still loves him. "This may be a set back but the war is far from over," Carly says.
