She tells him that if it wasn't for him she may have never taken the time to look at the old photos. She asks him why he called her beloved and then asked for forgiveness? He fumbles through an explanation, but Lily says that she thinks that he was thinking of his grandfather at the time. She invites him to come and stay at her house and he declines. He tells her that he is going to leave Oakdale today. She tells him that he can't take care of himself with his hands all bandaged up.
