She starts to say she's old but catches herself and says she's lucky to have such a great baby instead. Kay invites Paloma to stay for dinner and they leave the room to wait. Tabitha tells Endora that Kay is using Paloma to get to Miguel. She goes on to tell her that Paloma is a very angry girl; they can use it to their advantage. In the other room Paloma tells Kay she's sorry that Miguel left her to find Charity. Kay thanks her and says she hopes he comes back someday.
