Sam joins Ethan and Kristina at their table in Kelly's and plays poker with them. Kristina gets a text and goes outside to call Kiefer and break their date. Inside, Sam wonders why Ethan is encouraging Kristina's crush. He explains he's just trying to be nice to a girl with daddy issues and a screwed up boyfriend. She gets that, but warns he's leading her on and Ethan agrees to tone it down a bit. Kristina returns and Ethan says he has to go to work. She asks when their next poker lesson will be and Ethan says it's not a good idea. He doesn't want to lead her on and she's too young to be hanging around him. He leaves and Kristina rails at Sam. Sam tells her Ethan is too old for her, but Kristina reminds her of her relationship with Sonny. Sam in turn reminds her she was an adult when she was with Sonny. Kristina is furious and doesn’t know if she will ever forgive her and leaves.
