She realizes what she is wearing and tries to cover herself with her arms. When she lets him in he tells her that she should let him rub her temples. She stops him short and tells him she thought this was about Henry. He tells her he wants to help Vienna get Henry back but he needs her help, but she says not a chance. She said to help them this way would only mean she would have to team up with him and she can’t do that.

Brad goes to Al’s Diner and tells Vienna the truth about why Henry was kissing Kit. She asks how come Henry didn’t tell her the truth then. He says well he was going to but she went home and blurted out that she slept with Gray. He says Henry has a lot of pride but he is seriously hurting.

She asks Sofie for the medicine and then they send Sofie to ask the housekeeper for some towels. She says he really got hurt. Paul asks her if she volunteered for this and she says she was offered the job but she realizes she can’t do this. She says she is too involved. She can’t stand to see him like this. She asks Sofie if she can take over for her and she leaves.

Sofie is putting medicine on Paul’s back when Chris shows up to make sure everything is fine. Paul asks him if he is sure he just didn’t come to check on Sofie. She tells Chris she can take care of Paul’s wounds and promises to keep him up to date with his progress. When he leaves Paul asks if she is sure there isn’t something going on between her and Chris. She says no there isn’t, they are only friends. Sofie starts to read to Paul when she looks at him and she thinks he is sleeping so she lays her had over and falls asleep herself.

When he tells her he has no money and now no place to live, she tells him to come stay with her til he gets back on his feet again. He asks if she is sure. She says what kind of friend would let him stay out in the cold. She says to grab his bags and get him settled in.

Brad takes Vienna to the hotel so she can try and talk to Henry. She is nervous but Brad tells her to go get him. When she gets into the room she sees all of Henry’s things gone. She calls out for him asking if he is there when the house maid comes out the bathroom saying the gentleman that was staying there has checked out and from the look of things she doesn’t think he is planning on coming back leaving Vienna devastated. Brad finds Henry and tells him that Vienna was there looking for him and since she found him gone she left and went back to Gray. When Vienna gets back at the diner she tells Gray the only reason she is back is because Henry is gone. He hugs her and tells her then Henry can’t love him like he does. She asks if he doesn’t mind being second choice to Henry. He gives her back the earrings and necklace and says he will always be there for her just like the necklace and earrings will be.
