At the pub, Sarah thanks Eric for getting her out of the house. She takes a drink and calls Rex a few choice names. Roman overhears and Sarah spills the tea about Rex’s cheating ways. Sarah keeps drinking and Eric tries to stop her. She ignores him. She sees a couple getting engaged at the next table and flashes to Rex’s betrayal. She takes another drink and stumbles over to the couple and sits with them. She warns that “Mr. Perfect here will cheat on you. I guarantee it.” Eric runs to her and tries to get her to stop when the man, (played by Andre Steel), calls her obnoxious, so she throws her drink on him. Eric drags her off. She’s proud of herself for providing a public service, then runs off to the bathroom to vomit.
At the square, Rex gazes at the engagement ring and mopes. He sees Lucas and they discuss how Lucas is holding up, which isn’t well. Lucas grimaces. He asks if Rex patched things up with Sarah. Rex hasn’t and isn’t sure he ever will.
