Griffin prays at the hospital chapel for guidance when Father Cory (played by Fred Grandy) walks in and informs him that he’s come to take him back to his parish. Griffin needs more time, but the priest says he is out of extensions and the bishop needs him back immediately. Griffin admits he is unsure if he wants to remain a priest, and the father asks if there is another woman that has caused him to feel this way. Griffin admits there is, but it is not a physical relationship like with Claudette. He explains his relationship with Ava, and Father Cory wonders if Griffin wants something more than friendship from this woman. Griffin doesn’t know, but can’t return to the church without finding out the answer. The priest tells Griffin he needs to examine what is inside his heart and have the guts to listen to it. He believes it’s the only way that Griffin will find his answer. He leaves Griffin to reflect.

After everyone leaves, Kiki cries that she knows Morgan isn’t here because of her mother, and she’ll never forgive her for that.
