Laura arrives late, and as Paul pours her a glass of water, he asks whether she thinks their sessions are helping her. Was her tardiness a subconscious expression of how she views therapy? Angry, she can’t believe that he’d kick her out for being a few minutes late and then calls him out for using the situation to dodge discussing her attraction to him. He tells her that they can’t work together because she’s breached the boundaries too often, but she puts forward another reason for the tension: He loves her, too. When Laura leaves, she runs into Alex outside – he’s accidentally shown up on the wrong day – and he offers her a ride home.
