At the beach, their secret is revealed by Ethan, frustrated with Rachel for lying to people she cares about; that night at the bar, Rachel tells Dex that she wants him to call off the wedding so they can be together, but he tells her that he can't. After Ethan moves to London for a job, Rachel goes to visit him, he reveals that he accepts that Rachel does not reciprocate his feelings.
