As soon as Jack leaves, Carly's phone rings. She smiles seeing it's Simon calling. Simon requests she meet him at Lakeview. She says she'll be right there.
On her way out the door, she runs into Mike. While talking, she confesses she's still with Simon. "After he cheated on you?" he asks. She says she forgave him and suggests he do the same with Katie. Carly continues to lecture Mike about Katie, hoping she can get him to forgive Katie. Mike says she should listen to Jack and take him back. Ignoring Mike's suggestion, she goes back to he and Katie.
Mike's phone rings, interrupting their conversation. It's Henry calling to express Katie has some papers by the fireplace. He says they must be his construction papers, but he doesn't believe she would burn them. Henry says he's not sure. He claims it looks like she's been drinking, suggesting Mike come by and take a look.
Simon waits for Carly at Lakeview. While waiting, Jack arrives and joins Simon. Sitting down, Jack notices a black box on the table. He asks if he can see it. "Sure," Simon says. Jack opens up the box and whistles as he examines the diamond necklace. "Is it real or fake?" Jack inquires. "You tell me," Simon replies. He says it looks like he's trying to buy Carly. He goes on, telling Simon not to lie to her, use her or under estimate her, because there's no piece of jewelry that will get her back. Simon wants to know if she told him what happened between them last night, but Jack says he doesn't want to know. He continues by saying a piece of jewelry won't make up for what he done, and advises him to be good to her instead.
After Jack leaves, Carly arrives and Simon gives her the necklace. "It's beautiful!" she says. While admiring the necklace, she notices the diamond and asks if it's the diamond from the necklace he stole from Vienna. Simon attempts to avoid the question, but she asks him again. Without avoiding the question again, he confirms. "Are you out of your mind?" she exclaims.

He says this time he's doing everything right, including no cheating. She says she's happy for him. Then she asks if he's celebrating at the studio. "Uh... nope. This is going to be a private thing. Just Gwen and me," he shoots back. Looking all innocent and sweet, she says, "Oh... well, I hope you weren't planning on cutting the cake anytime soon."
