When he heard Kristina was coming back, he was anxious to see her, but wanted to wait until she got settled after the trauma of being abused so terribly by her husband, now her ex-husband. He knew about the damage Jason did to her face and didn't want to embarrass her by calling or going to see her to soon.

She knew he'd help her, but what she didn't know was how much more he'd do for her.
