Olivia can tell by Dante’s expression that something is wrong. He admits he messed up. The cop explains that he invited Sam to move in, but she thinks he needs to work through his feelings for Lulu. Dante admits part of him thinks he should have been able to save Lulu. Olivia embraces him and says what happened was Cyrus’ fault.

In the stables, Britt grills Cody about the fact that their fathers knew one another. Cody explains that he didn’t know who his parents were until recently. She still can’t forget his initial interest in her father’s name when they first met. Cody says when Dante told her that she was Faison’s daughter, his first instinct was to run as that name is trouble. However, when she took care of him in the alley, he saw another side of her and he liked her. He says if it’s not good enough for her, then she can go back to Society Setups.
Britt confesses her mother thinks they may have a lot in common. Cody says he likes her mom and asks if her dad ever talked about his father Leopold. She says he didn’t and suggests he not go digging up those skeletons.
Cody can’t stop thinking about the odds that he of all people would parachute into that pool and knock into her. They banter back and forth and even crack smiles at one another. Cody invites her to the Quartermaine picnic, which isn’t a date given all the people who will be there. She accepts, and they shake on it.
