Father Eric, Kristen, and Brady start pre-cana at the rectory office. Eric asks why Kristen loves Brady. She's surprised and takes her time before saying she likes that he leans in when he's listening, how he makes her feel special, and how he defends Nicole because she's his friend, or the way he wants her to go to this cockamamie counseling. She immediately apologizes for the last bit but admits she thinks about him now, not just herself. Brady credits Kristen for waking him up. He was a zombie.
