Gabrielle and Max bicker back and forth and eventually Gabrielle breaks down and says that nothing matters, not Asa, not anything; just Al. She then states that she is going to look for Al. Max stops her and tells Gabrielle that Al won't believer her. He tells her that if she went after him, tried to force him to listen to her, that Al would just “dig his heels in”. He convinces Gabrielle that the best thing to do is to wait and give Al time to come around. Gabrielle tells Max about how Al took care of her when she was very ill, and they had nothing. She tells him that Al is all she has. She says that Al is the only one who never let her down, and now she has let him down.

She begins crying some more, and in her grief, accidentally mentions this not being part of the “plan”. Max stops in his tracks. He asks Gabrielle “what plan”?
