After her call, Drew finds Carly sitting alone in the enclave and offers his shoulder if she needs it. Carly admits she and Sonny are having issues and she moved out. Drew councils her to trust her instincts, which Carly notes Jason used to tell her all the time. Drew is sure that she and Sonny will find their way back together, but if they can’t, to follow his and Jason’s advice. She thanks him and owes him an apology. She says when Jason first came home that she focused on Jason and ignored Drew’s pain. Drew reminds her it was a tough time, but Carly wishes she was a better friend. Drew is long over this.
