Inside Deacon and Amber's Las Vegas hotel room, Rick waited while Deacon and Amber chatted alone in the next room. Rick wondered why Deacon and Amber's conversation was so long. Meanwhile, Deacon desperately tried to convince Amber that they are meant to be together and that he loves Amber immensely. Amber sadly told Deacon that although the last few days together with him in Las Vegas had been wonderful, it hadn't stopped her from loving Rick. She asked Deacon to forgive her for hurting him and left the room to be with Rick. She explained to Rick that Deacon isn't the evil person they both thought he was. Rick concluded that Amber had fallen in love with Deacon. Amber assured him that she's in love with him. Deacon, who was heartbroken that Amber was returning to Rick, came out of the room and verbally lashed out at Rick. He warned Amber that she'd never feel as secure with Rick as she would with him. Deacon predicted that Rick will break her heart, and then she will regret returning to Rick.
