A distraught Ben confides in Jake about the situation with Ciara. Jake suggests giving Ciara the memory serum, but Ben notes there are a few issues with that. Jake thinks Ben needs to talk to Ciara and do whatever he can to jog her memory. “Jake pretty much slaps the sense into Ben because Ben is getting beat up by this on a few different rounds trying to get her to remember,” explains Robert Scott Wilson (Ben). “Jake tells him to get over there and keep fighting. Not that Ben’s giving up, but Jake is the one to kind of light a fire under him, so he takes his advice.”
