Outside the hotel, Sally leaves Thomas to go speak to Eva. He sits thinking about Bill’s insistence that his niece needs him in New York.Thomas-thinking-Bills-words-BB-Vision Elsewhere, Bill takes a call from Caroline who rants that she’s not going along with his lie any more. Bill cajoles her to stick with the plan for the time being – the sooner Thomas dumps Sally the better for everyone. They debate tensely. In the background, Douglas asks for Daddy. Bill implores Caroline to call Thomas and disconnects. On a patio, Thomas takes Caroline’s call and Douglas says he misses him. Caroline assures him she’s fine and lets him go.

Sally loves him even more for his decision, and will wait, because he’s worth it. “I love you, Bucko.” They cry and kiss. Thomas walks away down the beach as Bill watches and smirks.
