Abby asks, "Are you sure?" Vikki explains why she asked Abby to be her birth coach. Stitch is fine with it. He says he'd never do anything to hurt her. Abby guffaws. Vikki leaves. Abby calls Stitch a murderer. Stitch says what happened with his father wasn't pre-meditated. He shares that he was deployed when Max was born so he compiled tips and songs for Jenna. He shares them with Abby, who is moved a bit by this. She tells him she once thought he'd be good with her mother - she can't see Victoria with anyone but Billy. They bicker about his father again. Stitch says good people sometimes have to do bad things. Abby says she's made mistakes, but never killed anyone. Abby encourages Stitch to walk away from Victoria and rants about him lying about who he was. Stitch hisses, "You don't know a damn thing about me." He makes it clear he's paying dearly for what he did. Abby says Victoria doesn't want her child raised by him, just like Jenna.
