Rory sits on CuteDean's front steps as his parents' car drives up. She holds a letter. CuteDean gets out of the driver's seat, but we see no other CuteDean family member. Maybe he's so good at building cars that he built an SUV he can drive from the passenger's seat. Oh, wait. There's a looming male figure that says, "Hi, Rory." I guess that was Dad. CuteDean immediately sees Rory's cast and asks her what happened. She hands him the letter and tells him to read. She says that all of the answers are in her letter. She won't talk to him, hasn't hugged him -- nothing. She just keeps telling him to read the letter. CuteDean opens the letter, reads the first part, and scoffs, "Well, I love you, too." She tells him to hold onto that feeling while he reads the rest of the letter. CuteDean's one of those readers who has to move his head back and forth as he reads words. It's kinda sad. CuteDean has the following reactions as he reads: "What? Huh! What? WHAT?!" Rory tells him to keep reading, since there are at least three more "what"s to go. CuteDean has no choice but to kick his duffel bag. I hope there wasn't a present for Rory in there. On second thought, I hope there was. Rory tells him that the letter gets better at the end. He glares at her, and she says she'll just stand there until he gets to that good part. CuteDean is panting as he finishes the letter, his floppy hair hanging over his eyes. He finishes the letter and stands there for a little while. Rory looks down at her shoes. CuteDean walks closer to Rory and gently asks, "Is he really gone?" Rory says he is. CuteDean invites Rory in for dinner. She's shocked. CuteDean says that his mother's making a roast and he knows Rory likes roast. ["So either his mother just got home from a trip and instead of ordering pizza or something is making a roast, or else she's been home all this time, in this tiny town, and not only (a) never heard about the accident to tell CuteDean about it, but (b) has been inside all along, and yet Rory is sitting outside on the porch. Either way, I don't buy it." -- Wing Chun] Rory can't believe CuteDean hasn't flipped out or shed a tear. She says she likes roast. CuteDean tells her to come inside. Oh, that's not going to sit well with Rory. She can't just have someone decide it's okay now that Jess is gone. She wants drama! Tears! Yelling! Breakups! She wants CuteDean to dump her. Then she's not the bad guy. She's the dumpee. Well, it's not gonna happen, Rory. You'll have to dump him if you want to get rid of CuteDean.
