It was clear in those episodes that there was still a spark between Amy and Nate and they ended up sleeping together. As well as still being attracted to Amy, Nate was also thrilled to have the chance to spend time with his daughter and it was clear that he misses Frankie a lot.

As well as Naomi, the reunion of Amy and Nate had an additional hurdle that Nate didn’t find out about – Amy is engaged to somebody else.
