Nell returns home from a doctor visit, hinting there is something wrong but not wanting to discuss it. Abby jogs by Trace's place, and they briefly discuss last night and what it might mean. Soon after, Wes arrives to pick up the girls and gets into an argument with Abby. He gets in his car and says he'll be back in an hour. Abby returns to Trace, and they try to talk about each other's lives over the past several years. Trace won't open up about why he returned from Nashville, only saying that the music business isn't what he hoped it would be. As the two start to embrace, Abby stops and tells Trace the only way they can have a chance together is if her girls always come first and he lets things happen at her pace. As Jess prepares for the soft opening of her B&B, Megan takes a room there and the two later argue. A pipe bursts and Mick rushes to the B&B to fix it before the opening. Kevin, an Army medic, announces he's being deployed again to Afghanistan. Wes returns and hands papers to Abby, saying their current arrangement isn't going to work. Trace catches them arguing and starts toward Wes, but Abby tells him to butt out.
