She's starting to wonder if she's been wrong to stand up for him.
Noah goes to see Luke at home. They discuss Luke's situation and then Noah hands him papers to nullify his adoption. He's afraid that he will never be independent if he's tied to his family.

When he points the camera at Luke, Luke tells him who happy he is to have him in his life.
