It seems like he is able to handle the situation somehow. As for how exactly, he left out on purpose. He probably did not want her hearing more of Adrian and the state he was in.
"It's a relief that Bryan is there..." Cassidy sighed to herself and put her phone back in her purse.

Apparently, her husband and childhood friend are still holding on with their disputes even after their common enemy has already been apprehended. The same goes for their respective groups as well. It's something that she can no longer control since they've got their own ways of settling their matters.
Though her family respects her decision to leave everything behind and start anew, their grudge and resentment toward the Millicent's will probably persist forever.
