Tracy tells him off for how he just treated her and admits she loves him enough to do what she was willing to do without any benefit to herself and that he treated her badly. She tells him she won't tolerate him living in the past with Laura and tells him he needs to accept the fact that Laura is gone now and it doesn't matter if Scott or Nikolas is her guardian because it won't change what happens to Laura.
