The doctor asks what she was running from when she bought the bottle. Alexis explains that she couldn’t stay asleep because she was dreaming of the ‘dangerous’ Julian she fell in love with. That’s the one she dreams about. She complains about being like this and can’t handle being out of control. Julian did horrible things to her, but she still wants him. He reformed himself for her, but she doesn’t want that version of him. Only the one who hurts her makes her feel normal. Finn says drinking won’t help anything. She thanks him for coming and he leaves.
