Nicole runs into Daniel outside of his office. She thought he would be at Lexi’s service. He admits he ducked out after the funeral to avoid all the grief. Funerals always remind him of when his wife died. He asks her out for dinner. She says he doesn’t need to do that just because they slept together. Nic reminds him that she helped Chloe hide cheating on him. He just wants to have dinner so they can get to know each other. She tells him he’s paying. They go to Mandalay and tease each other about not drinking. She’s impressed that they are having a good time sober, but she says he’s too predictable to be attractive.

After dinner, he offers to walk her home but she tells him she’s not into hand holding. They part. She returns a moment later. Daniel rushes up to her and they kiss.
