At the loft, Carter tells Quinn how beautiful she is, inside and out. He never wants to hear her doubt her worth again. Quinn is touched, and feels the same about him, but their connection is too costly. Carter calls it profound, but Quinn reminds, “You have too much at stake.” She’s brought nothing but chaos into his life. Carter can’t deny that she has — a little bit — then listens as Quinn beats herself up for hurting Eric, the wonderful man she loves. She’s afraid she’ll do the same thing to Carter. He makes it clear it’s not that easy and admits, “I can’t get you out of my head.” With Quinn in his arms, he continues, “I don’t want it to end.” Quinn doesn’t either but it has to and once again reminds him she’s just going to hurt him — he’ll end up hating her. She couldn’t stand that because she cares too much about him. Quinn knows she shouldn’t be there but wanted to see him one last time. Carter is glad she came over. “This is it,” Quinn says. “Goodbye.” Carter watches her walk out the door. Outside the loft, Quinn leans on the door, as inside, Cater looks at her portrait.
