Gus is trying to convince Eden he wants her back as his sister when he notices she has been sewing. She tells him she is doing it for Marah who needs help with her fashion show. Gus wonders why Eden spent a year chasing Marahís boyfriend and now all of a sudden is sewing for her. He asks if she has a guilty conscience about something. At The Beacon, Marah explains to Tony after everything that happened with Ben, she was scared and ran home to her old room where she felt safe. For this, she tells him, she was wrong. She knows that now. Marah is surprised to find that Tony wonít embrace the idea of taking her back. She says it is only because she hurt him so much, even he believes the things she was wrong about. She is pleading when Tony says he canít take it Ė he just canít take her apologizing to him right now. Tony looks away as if embarrassed.
