Unbeknownst to Chad, the person on the other end is Gwen, calling to talk to the editor about the advanced copy for Ivy. Chad promptly hangs up the phone. Things get tense between the two, being locked in such a confined area together, but they are able to find a way out and decide that maybe they should tell Ethan about the tabloid report in private before he finds out from someone else.
