Then, as Sophie and Valentina head out to Sid’s bar, they invite Sophie’s mother to come along with them.

At Sid’s bar, Sophie tells her mother that she has plans that day but wants to hang out with her the next day. However, her mother informs Sophie that she will be leaving the very next day and that she also wants to introduce Sophie to her new boyfriend, Ash.

Sophie’s mother mentions that Ash is a singer in a band, and she wants to take Sophie to his show in Brooklyn that evening.
