Mulling it all over, Phoebe briefly meets Justin, who is struggling to train his dog, Buddy. He cheekily asks her out but she declines. Phoebe sees Dom and Tess with Bella at the playground. It’s a touching family tableau, causing Phoebe to make up her mind - they need to think of Bella in all of this too. She speaks to Dom later, he protests but the fact a big part of him is still in love with Tess is too much of a hurdle for them. As painful as it is, they agree to split. Reeling from the break-up, Phoebe gets drunk and impetuously goes back to the Morgans with Justin - only one thing on their minds.
