Jack is not ready for celebrations since the break up with Tess. Grace Monroe rides up and offers to help Henry and Jack gets a call. It is Allison. In the next scene, she is walking with her baby, Jenna in a stroller with Jack and Vince, who is in spirit, offers a Cold War Cappuccino. Alison tells that she heard about Tess and the breakup. Jack is surprised that word travels fast and Alison tells that she is going to get a Nanny for Jenna and Kevin, who is fiddling with a contraption.

Fargo tells that Jack needs to get changed in the spirit of things. Zane is in a jail cell in the office and Joe asks why he is there. He gives her a present. It’s a ring. He asks her to marry him. She is shocked and is unsure. Jack walks in and says congratulations but Zane walks out thinking it is a no answer. Jack tries to console Joe but she needs a while alone. ..
