Rev. Ted finally catches up, realizing what happened with Bonnie's miscarriage and wondering why she didn't tell him. Bonnie just says, "Phyllis." "Bonnie?" Veronica asks, as Phyllis looks up from where she was guiltily hanging her head. Bonnie slowly says that Tim didn't give her the book; Phyllis did. Phyllis tries to explain that she had Bonnie's interests at heart. Veronica stands there staring open-mouthed at the can of worms she dumped all over the floor. She genuinely didn't want or expect that this would be the way she would solve the case. Phyllis goes on to say that neither Dick nor Tim was worthy of Bonnie, or of being the father of Bonnie's child. Bonnie continues to look sick and horrified as Rev. Ted puts two bracing hands on Bonnie's shoulders. Phyllis rants that the baby would have destroyed all of Bonnie's plans and goals: "No career at all -- just divorce and a baby to support. And you have dreams, Bonnie, and I was trying to help you." Phyllis sobs that Bonnie was going to give up the baby until her parents found out. Phyllis is sorry. Finally, Bonnie finds her voice: "Sorry? You're sorry? GET OUT! I CAN'T LOOK AT YOU RIGHT NOW I WANT YOU OUT OF MY SIGHT!" For some reason, the actress playing Bonnie went decidedly Southern in her accent there. Well, even if the character isn't from Texas, Carlee Avers is. Maybe her accent slips in when she gets emotional. As Phyllis continues to try to apologize, the preacher's daughter starts screaming at her to go to hell. Damn, when your daddy's a minister, that phrase seems to take on way more force. Phyllis retreats to her bed to cry, while Rev. Ted holds his daughter back and tries to calm her down: "She didn't mean to hurt you, she didn't mean to. Try to be forgiving. It's the only way. Anger will tear you down, it will make you less of the person that you want to be." Hey, save it for church, bub. Meanwhile, Rev. Ted looks right at Veronica and says, "Anger will tear apart your soul." Oh, MAN! This means she's not going to cube the car. Fuck. I was looking forward to that. Stupid better self prevailing.
