In the loft, Zoe pleads with Carter not to give up on them. Carter wishes he could believe her words and tears were sincere. Zoe urges, “Let’s get married. As soon as possible.” She wants to stand by him forever. Carter loves her, but he can’t get past what she did. He declares they had their chance. Zoe protests and he roars, “It’s over!” He can’t trust her the way a man should trust his wife. Carter tells her she can keep the ring, but adds, “Take it off so there’s no confusion.” Zoe places the ring on the table and vows to win back his trust one day.

At the Forrester mansion, Paris raves about the catered meal and the dress Zende designed for her. She teases a girl could get used to this. Zende chuckles; his evil plan is working. They gush over the gown and Zende lets her know she’s beautiful. Paris doesn’t know how to thank him, but he knows exactly what she can do. There are two things; he wants her to teach him about her work and he wants her to sing for him. Paris thinks it’s the least she could do and launches into a song. After, Zende claps and gapes, “What?” She’s so talented. Paris thanks him for setting this all up. Zende is keen to get back to work and feels like he’s on fire right now.
