June still cant in touch with John. She tells Al she lost him once and she won’t do it again. Al breaks down and tells June about when she was missing and how she met someone. She felt something she hadn’t felt in a long time. But she can’t see this person again and she is having a hard time coming to terms with that. June doesn’t have words to make it better. She chose to focus on being grateful for meeting John even if she thought she would never see him again. She believes Al will see this person again.
