Charlotte goes into Coop's office and asks if they're going to talk about this. He smiles awkwardly, half laughs, and she says, "I guess we're not going to talk about this," and leaves, clearly annoyed. They are both so ridiculously immature. Why doesn't SHE just talk about it if she wants to? And why is it impossible for him to talk without talking to Violet first? Anyway, Naomi and William are talking. She's encouraging him, saying there's got to be something else, but he tells her he just wants to spend the time he has left with her, not chasing some impossible cure when there's nothing left to do. Pete walks by and hears them.
At Oceanside, Claire and her husband are leaving when Little Shephard catches them and says they can't leave. Claire says she's happy and doesn't want to go back. Little Shephard claims she understands, but Claire doesn't think so. So Little Shephard tells a story about how she and her brother were there when her father was murdered, which put her in a very dark place. So dark she started doing drugs, and people told her it was real, but it wasn't. And she died for three minutes. She tells her that dying hurts in a way she can't describe to her, and she doesn't believe people will change, but maybe she'll be able to and will wake up happy, but dead she won't get a chance to find out. She adds that she doesn't believe in God, but if she did, she wouldn't believe in one that wanted her to die from a horrible tumor that will take away her ability to speak, and go to the bathroom, and breathe on her own. Claire says okay, but her husband protests a little, reminding her God is telling her this. But Claire says maybe the surgery is what God wants. Her God needs to make up his mind, I think.
