After Connie shows up unprepared for her Bible study once again, Whit tells her that he’s concerned about all the time she’s spending with Mitch. Connie assures Whit that it’s nothing to worry about. She and Mitch are enjoying the peaceful time in their relationship after the rocky period has ended.
Connie is upset over Mitch’s big decision to maybe move to Virginia with the FBI, and seeks out Whit for a nice long talk. Whit wonders if Connie might be the one who did the abandoning since she hasn’t talked to God about it. Connie realizes Whit was neglecting her on purpose to make a point. She decides to pray right away.
Soon after, Connie and Mitch meet at Trickle Lake. They agree that they’ve gone too fast in their relationship and they need to slow down. Connie is still concerned about Mitch’s job, but says she’ll leave it in God’s hands.
