Adam comes in and sees her on the phone. He asks if everything’s OK.
She asks if he was listening in, and Adam says that he just saw her hunched over her phone, looking uncomfortable.
Sally says she just wanted privacy.
Adam says that she looks tired, and he’s a listening ear if she needs one. He says that it might be good to talk about what’s keeping her up at night.
She glares at him and says, “Don’t you mean who is keeping me up at night?”
Adam says he didn’t mean anything by it, and he certainly doesn’t care who she’s sleeping with. He says he understands that she said their relationship is over, he gets it.
Sally says that her new business is keeping her up at night.
Adam reassures her and says that whatever she puts her mind to, it will be a success.
Sally says he’s laying it on pretty thick, and wonders what he’s after.
He says that he just wanted to help, and he gets up, saying that he doesn’t need to take her attitude, he was just trying to be nice.
Sally apologizes to him, and says she has a lot on her plate, she didn’t mean to be in “a mood”.
Adam comes back to the table, and they talk again. He tells her that she can talk to him about whatever is bothering her.
Sally says that she wishes she could talk to him about what’s really on her mind, but it’s not something that she can talk about right now.
Adam says he wishes he could help, but he knows that she can handle anything.
She asks why he’s being so nice, and Adam says that she knows why.
Sally asks what he means by that. He says that he has a connection with her, that’s all he meant.
She looks at her phone, and says she has to go to an appointment.
As she’s leaving, she turns around and thanks Adam.
Abby comes downstairs to find Devon in the living room of his apartment. He gives her a mug of coffee.
Abby says that she had a good sleep.
Devon tells her that he’s sent Dominic to the park with the nanny, and asks how she feels about last night.
They kiss good morning, and she says she felt a little hint of guilt, as her divorce is so fresh.
She says that when she looks at him, she knows she’s in the right place.
She says that she feels happier and lighter when she’s with him.
Devon says he feels the same way, and they hug, smiling.
Abby says that she has to go home, because everybody would be talking if she wore the same thing two days in a row.
She says it’s weird, going back to the Chancellor mansion, because she’s not even a Chancellor anymore.

Devon tells Tucker that he’s a bit upset about the issues at the office. Devon says that Jill and Lily want to take the company public, but he’s opposed to it.

Lily says that doesn’t sound like him.
