At the gallery, Ava tells Griffin that she loves him. He’s flattered but doesn’t know how to respond. She asks him to consider it a gift or end things now if her love is a burden. The doctor thinks about her all the time and she’s forced him to re-examine himself. She’s helping him to change and it’s exhilarating. He’s terrified about how he feels and worries that he’s not enough for an independent woman like her. They aren’t breaking up, but he can’t promise to make her his first priority. She hopes that he can feel the kind of love she feels for someone someday. He’s all she wants. They hug and she asks him back to her place. Griffin says she’s the best thing that ever happened to him.
