Do The Right Thing
At the dance, Ryan sees Cassie and gives her flowers, but Cassie seems unsure. Annie confronts Cassie about the truth of her relationship with Ryan; she no longer believes the two of them are dating. Cassie wants to know why Annie seems to care so much about the answer.
Mark introduces himself to Sam, and lets him know he is in town on business. In fact, he is trying to turn one of Ryan’s real estate clients into his own. After Sam shares what he knows with Ryan, Ryan confronts Mark about trying to steal away his developer client-- he has lost this game, and Ryan is over all of it. Ryan forgives him so that he can move on, and lets Mark know he has been caught and that he should go. Middleton is his hometown, and he is not welcome there anymore.
Meanwhile, Sam stops in the kitchen to visit Stephanie, who has been cooped up catering the event. She agrees to a dance, and is impressed by his moves.
Annie approaches Cassie and tells her that she does not care about Ryan. Ryan interrupts them and Annie declares that she knows they are not a couple. Cassie says she is wrong and, in front of the whole room, kisses Ryan! Afterward, she turns back to Annie and asks, “Together enough for you?” Later, Ryan thanks Cassie for teaching him about forgiveness, for the kiss, and for everything else. She is a good friend.
Sam and Cassie talk in the kitchen, and then head out to the ballroom for one last dance with Stephanie and Sam, respectively. Ryan asks if maybe they should try dating for real. Cassie leaves the request without an answer, at least for now.
