She pours wine and toasts to the night neither one of them will ever forget, and then opens her blouse and pushes him on the sofa. He grabs her arms and she flashes to him yelling followed by a slap. He says, "I want you to want me." Avery hollers that her guilt is gone. She hysterically tells him he hurt her and to get out. Joe says he may have made a mistake here tonight, but he wasn't the only one.

She won't, and goes on about the obstacles they've overcome. Michael says if everything he's done hasn't convinced her it's over, maybe they should look at what she's done. He saw her kissing Cane.
