Back in the dorm, Noel asks Felicity what's going on. Felicity says that she's going to see Todd because the doctor just called and said he was stabilizing. Noel asks if Felicity got any of his messages. Felicity explains that she just got home and hasn't checked the machine. Noel manically explains that he thought she might have gone to the hospital last night, so he went there to find her, but she wasn't there, and then reminds her that they had plans. Okay, yes, it was rude of Felicity to totally forget about the plans and not call Noel to cancel. But Noel is so insecure that he went to the hospital to look for her? Wow. Felicity ignores Noel's diatribe, shoves some of her artwork into Noel's hands, and orders him to look at it. She explains that she went to a studio in the art school and drew all night, and that it was like she couldn't stop. Felicity hurries out the door and Noel follows her. He asks what's in the bag she's carrying. She explains that it's some stuff for Todd that he used to like. Noel remarks that they have switched places. Felicity asks what he means. Noel walks down the hall with her as he explains that now he's the one leaving the messages and Todd's the one she's running off to be with. Felicity denies that is happening. Noel says he doesn't have a problem with Todd, but that Felicity is being different. Felicity apologizes, but doesn't seem to see what the big deal is, because she was just drawing. Noel says he doesn't care that she was drawing. That finally gets Felicity's attention, as she whirls on him and says, "You don't care?" Noel says that if she's going through something, he needs her to tell him. Felicity says that not every problem can be solved by her running to him "all wide-eyed" and asking for advice. She concludes, "There are some things you cannot help me with." I like that there is continuity throughout the series with Felicity hearing something about herself from another character, and then using that information against her boyfriend, and the boyfriend has no idea what she's talking about. She did the same thing in the fourth season when her dad told her that she had already spent too much time following Ben around. If I were Noel, I would just be like, "Bitch is crazy," and then call Hannah and see if she's still available. Felicity stomps out as Noel stands there stunned and angry. Richard comes up behind Noel and asks if he and Felicity are breaking up. Richard adds, "Because that would really screw up my life." Noel says, "You know what? Yeah, I think we are."
