Spencer, crying: "Hey. Um... I just called to say I miss you. I'm worried about you, and... I just really miss you."
Yeah, we're all real worried about Toby. At least until UPenn emails -- at midnight -- to thank her for her on-time early admission. Could be a lie, maybe it's real. Either way it dries those tears right up.
She stares at the lady, her dog, the little doggie figurines on the desk, and then gets her new apartment. Apartment A, of course. That's my girl.
Three more episodes 'til we're done. Something happens in a barn, and Hanna acts kooky. The world will be a little colder, a little darker, sure. That's the price of Noel Kahn. It's like that story where the sun only comes out once every seven years, only with Noel Kahn and we're not on Venus. Our time with him is precious, don't waste it on regret. Just know that somewhere, he and Jenna are doing things. Dark things, that we don't have words for in our merely human language. And that he'll be back for us again, eventually.
