"Allie..." Even as John said the word, he couldn't believe it. The last person he expected to see when he opened the door was Allie Fowler. "What are you... why are you here?"

"I wanted to talk to you," she said simply, honestly, neither aggressive nor cowed.

"I — I don't think we should be talking about your case outside of — "

"I don't want to talk to you about my case. I want to talk to you about Gregory. Can I come in? Please?"

He didn't quite have the strength to actually say yes. But, John found himself moving aside, nevertheless, letting Allie walk through the door and into his home — Gregory's home. John wasn't sure what he expected of her once inside, but he felt pretty sure that what he didn't expect was for Allie to seem so comfortable there. He tried to remember if she had ever been in his house before. And he tried very hard not to imagine what it might have been like if things were normal, and she had just stopped by to see Gregory, who was a perfectly normal, healthy young man.

"I don't have anything to say to you, Allie. Not anything you'd want to hear, anyway."

"I know," she bobbed her head as if expecting and taking no offense from his rejection. "But, I promised Gregory that I would give you a message."


Donna draws a line in the sand for Rachel and Carl, while Spencer offers Grant and Marley a suggestion for keeping her under control. Jamie offers Alice his best wishes without confessing his reservations, Lorna strikes back at Matt, and Sharlene and John receive shocking news about the circumstances of Gregory's death.
