Sylvia is certain Quinn will reappear soon. There's a good explanation, and the event can be saved. Quinn would never ruin this night. At least not willingly. So, did he leave against his will? As more time passes without Quinn, anxiety spreads and suspicions rise. Nicole's reporter nose smells something amiss, and her heart aches that Quinn might be in trouble.

But he can't let the shadows of his past cost him his promising future. Long ago, Ethan and Nicole both quit dreaming they could ever reconcile, but as they cross tentative paths once more, will they allow themselves a chance to at least reminisce?
