He admits that he’s let her think the worse, but he’s made sure their daughter has been taken care of. He calls in Carmen, the woman who has been raising their child.

The mustache suggests he let him worry about that. “Don’t make the same mistake Billy Abbott did,” he says. Noah walks away as Jack arrives.
