The doorbell goes. It is Nathan – who says that he was here earlier and Elsie asked him to come back to go on a date with her daughter.

He goes up to see Heather. Elsie gets confused. Al arrives, saying that he is concerned about her after seeing her earlier, and also found out that she has missed some VPAS appointments.
