Jake then joins Oceanside Wellness Center, where Addison works. The latter hides her history with Jake from Sam and continues to consult him, who helps her deal with two failed IVF procedures. Jake also helps her find a surrogate for her to fulfill her wish to become a mother. Addison and Jake gradually grow closer. Both of them start to send mixed signals to each other, only for Jake to confront Addison to ask whether their relationship is strictly physical. Addison responds that it is not, making it clear that she has feelings for him. Jake then realizes that he has been sending her mixed signals as well.
Addison proposes to Jake, only for him to not respond to her. His actions humiliate Addison but their relationship survives the predicament. Jake talks to the spirit of his late wife and decides to marry Addison. They both get married eventually.
