Jack asks Jennifer if she’ll ever find it in her heart to forgive him and take him back. Jennifer is anguished and tells Jack she can’t do this now. It’s not fair to turn the question around and make it about her when the topic is Jack and Abigail. Jack apologizes, pulls back. He doesn’t want to pressure her. Jennifer says she does want to help Jack reconnect with his daughter… but warns she’ll only do so if he can promise he won’t hurt Abigail again. An emotional Jack makes plain to Jennifer that he knows how much he’s hurt the ones he loves. In fact, it was the knowing of it that nearly crippled him while he was held prisoner – knowing he couldn’t correct the record and assure his family he was indeed thinking of them. He tells Jennifer all he can do is promise he’s changed – but it’s up to her to believe him. EJ and Abe go at it on live television and EJ works hard to hang the yoke of Abe’s support for John Black around his head. Abe stands up for his friend even though it would be politically expedient for him to do the opposite. His integrity and loyalty are clearly more important to him. However, the cost of those admirable traits becomes clear when reaction to the broadcast filters in and EJ comes off as the clear winner. Kate takes pleasure in lording over Madison how she has stolen the distribution deal with a Japanese conglomerate. But Kate’s unaware that Madison had fully expected Kate’s move… and has already ensured that it plays to her ultimate advantage. Brady in particular is impressed and he sees Madison in a new light. Sami, Brady and Madison bring Nate Berkus to Madison’s future showroom so he can present his ideas. Madison surprises Brady by laying down the one essential ground rule for their working relationship: she doesn’t fool around with investors. Brady claims she misread him but then she surprises him by brushing up against him, lingering a little too long... and he’s left to wonder if she really meant what she said.
