This will permit Elizabeth to enjoy more time with her family and spend more time with her. Fritz said that Fritz was forced to make a choice between his family and his career. Fritz postponed her promotion.
Disappointed, J.C. quits, and relocates with Elizabeth to a farm located in Vermont. She bought the house without seeing it in person, or getting it examined. She realizes it is in need of repairs, including a failing plumbing system, heating, and water supply issues. She is overwhelmed by loneliness and the growing cost of her new house, as well as a lack of patience and cash.

Although initially irritated by his and his petty snark, she becomes averse to his advances and is focusing on returning to New York as fast as possible.

They lay out the multi-million-dollar deal to buy her company and then distribute its products across the country, and offering an attractive salary, a Manhattan apartment and other advantages. J.C. was ready to accept Fritz’s offer and she believes she can return to her former impressive and distinguished job in New York. J.C. is confident she can build her company on her own without sacrificing her relationship with Elizabeth and Jeff. She is content in her new role as a mom, girlfriend and CEO of her own business and is returning to Vermont to see Jeff and Elizabeth.
