Brook Lynn and Maxie meet at Kelly’s. They speak about Heather and Ryan briefly but soon move to discuss Brook Lynn and Chase’s careers. Brook Lynn says Chase is likely to return to being a cop in the next few months, and she is happy for him. Brook Lynn says she has her catalog back from Linc, so she can shop her songs around to artists. Maxie asks why she doesn’t appear happy about any of this. Brook Lynn admits she thinks Chase is interested in Sasha, but Maxie thinks he’s only being a supportive friend. Brook Lynn gets back to getting her music back, which came at the cost of signing a non-disclosure agreement with Linc to not speak out about how slimy he really is. She feels Chase will judge her for putting her career over doing what’s right. Maxie says the Speak Out Act invalidates that NDA, and she should talk to a lawyer. Brook Lynn agrees to investigate it but still thinks Chase won’t forgive her.
Sasha appears and asks what Chase won’t forgive Brook Lynn for. Brook Lynn says it’s just work stuff. Sasha joins them and admires Brook Lynn for juggling two careers, and what she’s done for Chase as an artist is amazing. Maxie excuses herself for a moment to allow them to talk, and Brook Lynn appears uneasy. Maxie soon returns and asks what she missed. BLQ decides to get going, but Sasha demands to know what this tension between them is, and why she suspects it has to do with Chase.

Diane asserts it was just breakfast. Diane thanks Alexis for alerting her to who the hook was before the story hit the presses.
