Britt tells her mother to stop and asks Cody to go for a walk so she can speak to her mother.

Cody returns with a drink for Obrecht and overhears her noting that Society Setups got this one right, which is the least they could do after that parachute incident.

Cody says, “Maybe for the third date!” Obrecht leaves to find her boyfriend, and Cody tells Britt that he really likes her mother.

At the bar, both Dante and Sam agree that Britt doesn’t seem to be Spinelli’s type. Sam thinks she should call and check in on Spinelli. Dante stops her and asks if she’s really that worried, or if she is trying to avoid talking about moving in together again. Sam admits she’s been thinking about his question a lot, and she has some questions of her own. She wonders first where they’d live. Dante feels there is more room at his place, and it’s closer to the school. Sam admits she’s not comfortable at his place because it’s Lulu’s home. Sam says while Lulu may be his ex, he loved her for years and they have so much unfinished business. Dante knows the coma left a lot hanging, but reminds Sam that he and Lulu were over before the bombing, and Lulu had moved on.
Dante tells Sam he can be patient, and he wants her to let him know when she’s ready to move in. He loves her and wants a life with her. She says she loves him too. They kiss, and Dante is paged by the station. After Dante leaves, Sam looks over and sees Drew and Carly together and laughing.

At the Metro Court Gardens, Ava welcomes Scotty back and they grab a table. Scott asks what is going on with her and Nikolas, and if the divorce is off since he hasn’t seen any signed papers come across his deck. Ava says things have changed, but the divorce is happening.
Nikolas interrupts, and Ava reveals she’s decided to give him that divorce. She signed the papers and pushes them at him, but he refuses to sign. He tells Ava he needs to speak to her alone because he has bad news about Trina’s trial.
Scott leaves them, and Nikolas tells Ava they absolutely can’t get a divorce. He explains that since Esme has not resurfaced, she’s most certainly dead. When her body turns up, if they are divorced, questions will be asked about the circumstances and he could be called to testify against her. Ava reminds him she’s innocent, but Nikolas states so is Trina. He begs her to let him help her.
Scotty returns and asks what the verdict is. Ava says they are not getting divorced, for now. Scotty leaves and Ava asserts to Nikolas that this is only to protect herself. He asks her to come home, but she refuses to live in that house with him. He asks how they’ll explain that. She says that’s his problem.

This just might be the answer.
At the yoga studio, Felicia and Anna work out while chatting about what they’ve been up to. Anna brings her up to speed on Valentin claiming he got sick and had to transfer to a different facility, which is why he left the clinic. Anna wonders if her curiosity about what he may be keeping from her could simply be her looking for an excuse to dump him.
Anna asks Felicia what she thinks she should do. Felicia tells her to trust her instincts and asks if she is satisfied with Valentin’s explanation of why he didn’t come home earlier. Anna admits she’s not, so Felicia pushes her to find out the truth. Anna knows she needs to know what Valentin is hiding.

Sonny agrees but feels they can build on that time in their lives going forward as long as she’s willing to take a chance on them.
Smoltz arrives and tries to get a comment from Sonny and Nina on Sasha’s arrest. Nina has to hold Sonny back several times from clobbering him, and eventually, Smoltz runs off.
