Sharon tells Nick that she is in a bad place, too, that's why she asked Nick if Noah could stay with him. Nick tells Sharon he followed up on the job she was applying for, but now he's not so sure he should have given her a reference because he doesn't know if she can handle it. Sharon becomes upset, demanding to know when Nick became so judgmental. Jack asks Sharon if she can give him some help in the study, and Sharon goes to him, saying that Nick can show himself out.
