Ciara gives Ben clean sheets for the couch. He is sorry about the strain this has put on her relationship with her mom. Ciara sighs she is wrong about him and goes to get him another pillow ... Tripp is still against him staying. Claire primly points out Ciara seems to feel passionate about it and flounces off. Tripp glares daggers at Ben as Ciara continues to fuss ...

Kate takes a drink and savors the taste of victory, now alone. Then she calls Will and promises that Ted the terrible will bother them no more. She will call him again later. Will is grateful. She would do anything for him and places her gun back in the case. She sighs Ted should not have believed she would actually give him Andre’s money! She takes another drink like she needs it ...
