In Carly’s kitchen, Joss tells her mother that she’s switching her major to pre-med and wants to be a doctor. Carly wonders what prompted this as changing majors is a big deal. Joss confesses she hates feeling helpless, and that’s how she felt when Dex was shot. Carly asks, “Do you want to become a doctor because it’s safer than having feelings for Dex.” Joss admits the situation with Dex shifted her priorities. Carly says she will support her, but if Joss does have feelings then she needs to consider that Dex works for Sonny and will likely have more incidences of violence in his life. Carly would hate to see Joss live the heartache she did while with Sonny.

Joss admits she has feelings for Dex but isn’t sure what they are, or if they will last.

They embrace, and Carly is proud of her decision.

She admits they don’t have that same connection, and she doesn’t feel like half of a couple. Carly asks if she’s talked to Cam. Joss hasn’t and can’t stand hurting him. Carly understands but says the longer she waits, the harder it will be. Joss knows breaking up with her best friend is going to be brutal. Carly warns her that she’ll be labeled the bad guy, and says people will whisper, “Like mother like daughter.” Joss decides to change and go for a run to think.
