Liz explains to Dante and Finn that Sam is upset because Jason just got engaged to Carly. After the doctor and nurse file away, Dante tells Sam he’s sorry about how she’s feeling. He offers her his hand and leads her away.
Liz admits to Finn that the pyrotechnics were her idea. They discuss Carly and Jason and how it feels to always come in second.

At the Metro Court, Carly tells Jason they should go back to the bridge someday. Laughing Jax and Britt stroll in. Things get awkward fast and then confrontational. Jason leads Carly away. Britt needs air and exits with Jax. Carly vents to Jason until the leader of the Novak family stops by their table to congratulate them on their engagement. The second he leaves, Carly stalks after Jax.
Jax and Britt are on the patio. He doesn’t mind her picking fights with Carly but warns it gets unpleasant. Carly interrupts and Britt heads back inside. The exes bicker and he reminds her of all the other women she’s hurt over Jason. He says it was inevitable that she’d fall back on Jason as soon as Sonny died. He’s only amazed that she didn’t walk away from the mob when she had the chance.
Britt joins Jason at the bar. He assures her that Carly doesn’t know about the Huntington’s and he’s not bailing on her. “Go to hell,” she says. He reminds her that he made a promise; she still means something to him. The doctor tells him to admit he’s loved Carly all along. He claims he’s loved all the women he’s been with. She concedes Carly knows a good thing when she has it and wishes them well. After she walks away, Carly joins him to say that Jax has been putting the knife in. Part of her worries that he might be right.
