Emily asks Chris what he is doing in the office. He tells her with Dusty charging him with all this. He wants to make sure there is nothing there that they can use to say he gave his father something. She asks him if they done a toxic test on Bob. Chris gets defenceless by saying no way, why would he do that with since he already knew what medicines his father was on. She says she thought that was routine tests done in cases like this.

He tells her he knows she blames him in part for what happened. She asks him how come he had to still go after Craig. She tells him he had to go after Craig for revenge. She says that’s not love, it is more hatred than anything, hatred for Craig. She says she begged him to leave so nothing terrible would happen but he couldn’t leave not even for a second. She says God help her but the way she feels right now she doesn’t want to be with him anymore. He says they can fix these problems. She reminds him how he left her before by not telling her he was alive. She says they can’t go back. She tells him his greatest passion in life isn’t love for her. It is his hatred for Craig.
