Things come to blows with Beth and the two men in her life.
Peter has called her and asked her out to dinner to “catch up.” There was some vagueness in that language, some leeway for her to believe it wasn’t a date.
For her to forgive herself for saying yes.
Still. Here she is at some dingy bar close to Rio’s place knocking back bourbons and trying to muster up enough of a backbone to go and try to have an honest conversation with him. She needs it.
He’s still having sex with her, but he isn’t talking to her—he’s still teaching her, but when he looks at her it feels like it’s through some sort of thick, distorted glass. The walls are not just up—they’re closing in on her, pushing her away, backward towards the ledge. Beth wonders when her foot will fall to find air instead of solid ground.
