Denise tried to help him understand that no one is wrong and what they had to do was stand by Amy during this difficult time for her.
Meanwhile, Sam Mitchell was furious with Chelsea, Howie and Kim because Ricky Jr had to deal with Amy’s self-harm incident on his own.
Jack went to comfort his son when Denise informed him of Sam’s outburst, but the boy insisted that he wanted to spend more time with his mother instead of Jack.
Meanwhile, Denzel had contacted his former girlfriend to set up a meeting where they could talk through the recent events. When they met, Amy asked Denzel if they could get back together.

“While you’re getting better and stuff, I think just friends is all it should be,” he told her. “Sorry.”
Amy reluctantly agreed, but as Denzel left, he passed Jack and Denise on his way inside. Jack noticed that Amy had tears in her eyes, but she stopped him from going after Denzel again.
When Amy broke down insisting she had “ruined everything”, Denise hugged her. Amy admitted she “didn’t mean it” when she tried to hurt herself again.
“I was just upset and worried,” she explained. “I just did it. I didn’t want to die.”
Amy swore she would never hurt herself again as Jack gave her a warm hug. The episode ended with a slow tracking shot of Denise watching as Jack and his daughter finally put the tension behind them.
