Bo: I’m not gonna sleep with her, dammit! I’m not the one that cheats!
Inez and Clint broke up. Bo reluctantly asks if he’s the reason, and Inez says yes and no. Bo is confused, but Inez placates his concerns.

Nora is certain that Inez will try to sleep with Bo, but she’s floored when Bo claims that he’s not the cheater in their relationship.
Bo apologizes, but it’s back-handed; Nora “drove” him to say that. Nora is wounded, realizing that Sam will always be her fault and that Bo will never, ever forget. Bo feels terrible, pulling Nora to him and insisting that he didn’t mean to say that. “But you did.” Crestfallen, Nora recoils from Bo’s touch, leaving his office as he watches her go with guilt and sadness.
