This week, Tad admitted he was starting to fall for Cara, while Jake was torn between Cara and Amanda. Kendall and Griffin both danced around their feelings for each other, despite Tad and Cara’s encouragement. And Jane’s lack of Erica Kane-knowledge nearly tripped her up.
A Tad Eager
Tad admits he has growing feelings for Cara. Griffin thinks Tad is good for his sister and thinks Tad should do something about it, but Tad refuses to push the issue. Jake tells Amanda that he knows she lied about the results of her pregnancy test, but she is surprised when he says he isn’t mad at her. Tad convinces Mackenzie’s father to withdraw his complaint against Cara so she can be reinstated at the hospital. Tad tells Jake that now he can rehire Cara, but Jake worries about how the two of them will handle working together every day. Amanda admits to Tad that she lied to Jake about taking her birth control pills and Tad warns her that she’s only making things worse for herself. But Amanda wonders if she still has a reason to be paranoid about Jake and Cara. Meanwhile, Jake and Cara agree to move on but it’s obvious that there is still something between them. Amanda takes Jake to the park to mark the anniversary of their first wedding proposal. Feeling guilty, Jake recites his vows and kisses Amanda passionately. Jesse tells Tad that he thinks Tad has feelings for Cara. When Tad tells Cara he enlisted Liza’s help to get Griffin probation instead of jail time, she hugs him and Tad kisses her.
