After Nate leaves to check on patients, Amanda observes that Devon looked sad when Elena’s name was mentioned. Devon wanted Elena and Nate to be happy. He wishes he’d been honest with Amanda about what was going on with him and Elena; secrets always hurt the most. Amanda sighs; her life has been one long secret. She’s not doing it anymore — not for her family and not with Devon. He vows to give her the honesty he deserves. Devon has very strong feeling for her even though that gets clouded sometimes because of who she looks like. He struggled to get over Elena, but now clearly knows what he wants. Amanda asks, “Which is?” Devon replies, “I want you, and to know if we could have a life together. If you’ll give me the chance.” Amanda kisses him… and they keep kissing.

Sally denies sabotaging the heat; she lives there too.
