Sam walks her to Grey House, and Cassie hugs her cousin. Lori and Grace come out and greet her as well. Abigail explains that she got a new cell number, and has been very busy at work in New York. She claims she had so much vacation time that the company insisted she use some; that this was a great time to come and visit. Cassie seems dubious of her story.
