Jake tells Ben “Kate” dumped him, as the friends have a beer in Horton Square. Jake blames himself for telling her he was jealous of Gabi dating Philip. However, he felt like she was lying when she went over all the reasons she was leaving him. Ben wonders if “Kate” is right about him not being over Gabi. Jake says it doesn’t matter because he still has feelings for Kate. He thinks Ben should understand that. Ben does but tells him Ciara left town. Jake is sorry to hear it and offers to listen. Ben can’t talk about it but advises Jake to decide who he wants to be with and then do whatever it takes to let her know she is the one for him.

At Brady’s Pub, Roman asks “Kate” if she wants to give it another try, now that she’s free of Jake. “Kate” is flattered but she’s not the woman she was all those years ago. She’s moved on and so should he.

After “Kate” has left, Gabi and Philip come into the Pub for a “working” dinner. Roman tells Philip his mother was just there breaking up with Jake. Philip remarks that Jake’s been served up to Gabi on a silver platter. She scoffs. She won’t go running back to Jake just because he is back on the market. Philip smiles. He’s going to eat at the bar and make some calls. She’s free to do whatever she wants.
