As John pauses by the hospital coffee pot, Marlena asks who he was with all night. The new client? He sighs about the complexity of the case. She questions whether it is more important than the life of his bff. John rubs his face and she reminds him she is supposed to be his life partner. If only he would let her in so she could help.
