She tells him to just listen as she doesn’t know the losses he suffered but she has lost and might have a deeper understanding than he thinks. She talks about how she used to sing, it was her passion but the world wasn’t interested and had to watch helplessly as her dream slipped away. She had to mourn that loss – not her career, or the singing. It was losing the passion and her reason for living that she had to mourn.
Neil (Kristoff St. John) calling her, was the fresh start she needed and something she could put her energy into; helping him was helping her and she would never force anything upon him. He appreciates it but says she can’t compare loving a thing to loving a person. He will never get his wife or child back. She doesn’t suggest he try, but he can learn how to cope. She knows it is the hardest thing he’ll ever have to do, but he owes that to Hilary and himself.
Back at Crimson, Fen apologizes for trying to move in on Lola; but Kyle reminds him it never stopped him before.
