And then the dramatic music plays as we see Jake calling Tanner of all people to ask if he's doing the right thing in telling Jillian that Wes has a girlfriend. We don't hear Tanner speak at all, but presumably the answer has something to do with a pumice stone and nail clippers.
And there's Jillian the groupie excitedly talking to Wes about how cool it would be if his band takes off, and Wes says it's already taking off and she might as well get on the train now. She asks if they make a good team, and Wes says he has to have her to himself. "I am crazy about you," Jillian tells him and asks if he thinks she's not right for him. Wes says the minute he thinks she's not right for him, he's out of there. And he says he's here for the right reasons, and he doesn't know what to say, and Jillian tells him he's saying the right things. Man, he's saying things that would sound immature even for high-schoolers in small-town Alberta.
Meanwhile, Jake has finally changed out of his pilot's uniform and is vowing to put an end to Wes playing with Jillian's heart.
So now Jillian's waiting around in a hotel room, waiting for Wes to pick her up, and then there's Jake at the door. She says her first thought was that he was coming back to ask why she let him go. They sit down and she says something lame about how of all the guys he's the one she's most wanted to check on to see if he's OK, which we all know she'd be saying to whoever was sitting there.
So then he says he's not there to get her back, but because she thinks she'll have a hard time with one guy in particular, who she correctly identifies as Wes. "Because of his career and why he's here. Is that what you think?" she asks him. "My body just went numb," says Jake, like welcome to what it's like WATCHING this nonsense, and I'm guessing the instructions from the producers were to draw this out as long as possible. "Wes is here for his career, Wes doesn't love me, Wes is gay..." prompts Jillian. "Wes has a girlfriend. Her name is Laurel," says Jake, who says Wes confided in him and they talked about Laurel "more than three times." So... four times?
Jillian looks stricken, and Jake apologizes because she's someone who deserves someone who worships the ground she walks on. She asks if he's one hundred percent sure, and Jake says he wouldn't be here if he wasn't. He also says Wes will tell her that Laurel is a girlfriend from his past who he's still really good friends with. Jillian, fighting back tears, talks about how what goes around comes around, and talks about how she's sincere and a good person, and she has to put up with all this, and maybe she should just call it quits. "You can tell Wes that I came here," says Jake, adding that he'll be in Austin and if she needs him she can call him. Jillian tells us that she's upset and really disappointed.
