In the design office, Bill vows to Katie that he’ll be a better man; he’ll be everything she needs him to be — if she’ll just give him another chance. Katie has been burned too many times and says, “I’m sorry, Bill. But I think it’s too little, too late.” Bill declares he’ll do anything he need to do. “Just tell me!” Katie is exhausted. Bill refuses to give up on them. Katie argues the back and forth isn’t healthy for any of them, especially Will. “I want something different. I want my man to be mine.” She wants someone who craves companionship and connection the same way she does, and she doesn’t think that man is Bill. He disagrees. Bill wants those things for himself and knows he touches her soul. He will fight to get her back and nothing will get in his way.
