Kirk is determined to get a higher rank at "Capwell Enterprises", buts his ego gets in the way: He critisizes Eden about 2 deals that she is about to make, and tells her she should hire him as her business consultant, since she can't make such big decisions on her own and she needs an expert's advice.

Julia wants him to get out, but Dylan convinces her to drive him to the cheapest motel. When they reach the model, Dylan asks Julia for one last favor: Since he has only his short pants on him, he is sure he won't be allowed to rent a room. Julia agrees to rent a room for him, and then she reminds him that he hasn't even told her his name. Dylan tells her his name is Tom, and Julia tells him her name is Helen. Policemen come into the motel, and show Dylan's photo to the reception man, asking him if he has seen this man recently. He tells them he has never seen him.

After Julia leaves, Dylan takes the book out and finds Julia's name in it. "Well Julia, I'm sure we'll meet again" smiles Dylan to himself satisfied.
Cruz and Eden are having a tough argument. Cruz thinks that CC had no right to ask Eden to end his life. He knew how hard it will be for her and he was thinking only about himself.
