Ben shows his mom, played by Dee Wallace Stone, around the loft. Does that mean that Ben and Elliott are brothers? When I was a kid, I had a crush on Elliott's older brother in E.T., Michael. I thought he was cute. I was like ten years old, so please cut me some slack. I also had a crush on Danny Noonan from Caddyshack, so you can see what my type was. Anyway, enough about my pre-adolescent crushes. Mrs. Covington is impressed with the loft, and notices the drawing hanging above Ben's bed. It's the one that Felicity did of the guy running into the wall. Mrs. Covington starts gushing about seeing Felicity's mom, and Ben quickly changes the subject by asking his mom what she wants to do. Mrs. Covington just wants to get back to the hospital, and tells Ben that his father has been put back on the transplant list. I think Dee Wallace Stone has had one too many facelifts, because her eyebrows are permanently raised and her face has no wrinkles or laugh lines or anything. Anyway, Mrs. Covington says that she can't wait to take Jack home. Ben is surprised to hear this, and Mrs. Covington confirms that she and her husband are reconciling. Ben sighs and shakes his head, and then sits down on the bed. Mrs. Covington sits next to him and says that she knows it's hard. Ben tells her that he understands if it's what she wants, "but it makes [him] very, very nervous." Mrs. Covington explains that it is what she wants, and after all they have been through, "it's not easy to let go." She and Ben share a sort-of hug.
The Creepy Piano Music of Guilt-Ridden Insomnia plays as Felicity tosses and turns in bed, unable to sleep. She finally gets up and pulls out some paper and a pen. Lightning flashes outside her window. She checks to make sure that she's not keeping Elena awake, and then begins a letter to Ben. We don't get to hear it. Yet.
Felicity starts walking down the hallway to the loft, and then pauses as if she's rethinking her decision to give Ben the letter. Then, she continues on, resolutely. Ben answers the door. Felicity says that she knows he doesn't want to see her. Ben stares at her, and doesn't tell her that she's wrong. Felicity says she knows that she needs to respect that, and she "wasn't going to do this, but [she] couldn't help it." Felicity reaches into her coat pocket and holds out the letter. Ben doesn't make a move to accept it. Felicity firmly says, "Just take it." Ben finally does, and Felicity turns and walks off without another word. Ben looks down at the letter in his hand, and walks back into the loft. It's a total Rachel letter to Ross, although I would guess that Felicity knows the difference between "you're" and "your."
