At the cabin, Ciara awakens in bed alone and flashes to remembering her discussion with Ben last night. He wakes up in the chair nearby. She’s hungry and has changed. He directs her to get food from the trunk and she does, since he can’t walk. She returns with Chinese food and she remembers how he told her all about it being their favorite food. She finds it boring, “but do you know what I do care about? Marrying Theo.” They dine and she bitches that it’s cold. He says they’ve had this argument before. She tells him all of this isn’t magically going to make her fall in love with him again. “Okay,” he says. He’s done with forcing the issue. He won’t stand in her way if she leaves after she eats. Later, she finishes and tells him not to pull anything like this again. He won’t. He gives her a fortune cookie. She doesn’t want it. He says it reminds him of their first date and flashes back. Ciara opens her cookie and tells him, “It says that my date will end with a kiss.” Ciara won’t take the cookie. It won’t change anything. “This is about fate,” he tells her. Ben keeps talking and she finally wants him to shut up and opens the cookie… “It says yes.” He’s puzzled. She says, “So much for fate.” She gets up and begins to remember everything. He can tell and she denies it and tries to run off. He begs her not to fight it.
