won't let this drop because he's jealous of EJ. When she starts demanding
things, he gets angry and she backs down. As she starts to give him the name,

daughter adores her. She's amazed he has such a great connection with Syd when
he didn't see her for so many months. She's jealous that he's had so much time
with the little girl. He tells her they are a family now and she has the rest of
her life to have a relationship with her daughter. She complains about how hard

bicker and she storms off. He grumbles to himself until Hope comes in and teases

words bothers him. She thinks he's impossible to talk to and storms out. He
tries calling her but she won't pick up. Nicole wanders in and asks Roman if he
has any leads on Brady's attack. He thinks this concern for justice is rich
coming from her. She says she regrets hurting people. Roman says it's too
little, too late. He leaves. Brady stares over and stirs his coffee. She walks
over and asks if she'll ever be forgiven by the people of the town. He declares
that he can't talk and walks out. Kenzie pops up and fills her in on Ari's
tantrum earlier. Nicole smirks. She walks out and calls Ari, who isn't
interested in speaking and hangs up. That's exactly what Nicole expected. She

to New York and be a dancer. Maggie thinks she's running away. Mia is reminded
