Devon shows up with flowers. He wants to be by her side during her recovery. She doesn’t want him there since he wants to change her. He insists that he wants and needs her. She’s determined to get through it on her own and gives him the boot. Later, Devon runs into Lily downstairs. He tells her his marriage is dead. She hopes he doesn’t actually love is wife. Jack strolls in and asks after Hilary. Devon grouchily walks off as Hilary comes down the stairs. She and Jack sit at the bar and she complains about her husband’s pity. Jack doesn’t think she should stop fighting for her marriage. Since Lily is spying on them, Hilary asks him to take her back upstairs. He takes her to the rooftop instead. She feels woozy and then kisses him. He pulls away and apologizes if he’s sent the wrong signals. Hilary apologizes and claims it must just be the meds. After he walks off, she smirks to herself. When she heads down to the bar, Lily pops up to snark at her. Hilary gloats that she will keep her out of there when she owns it. Back on the roof, Luca makes a call to tell someone that Nick is coming down to check on the facility.
