Lani reminds her that would only keep her there longer than she needs to be. “Kristen” says she’ll only be there a month no matter what. “Kristen” covers when Lani questions her declaration. Next, Lani shows her photos of Jules and Carver. “Kristen” tears up looking at them. Lani feels bad knowing Kristen can’t be with her own baby.
