She wants to know what Anna is trying to set Edmund up with her. Maybe Anna feels guilty. Edmund has been very supportive to her.

He has a frantic look in his eyes. She tries to explain to him that she is Opal and not Gillian. She has to get home to her son. She tells him that Gillian must be gone again. She wishes that she could help him reconnect with her, but he has to let her go. He asks for her forgiveness and tells her that he is sorry. She is sorry too.
