Though Evan offers to pay the late fees, Gently insists it's not about the money, and he is impressed when Gently convinces the librarian to waive the fee. Later, Evan and Gently connect on social media, and they meet at a cheesecake shop. As they learn more about one another, Evan offers to help Gently run an errand to pick up a used refrigerator for Miss Luma. They pass the time at a nearby arcade while they wait for the owner to return, but their powerful connection takes a sharp turn when Evan says something that makes Gently feel judged. They finally arrive to pick up the refrigerator, but they once again disagree about how to solve an issue. When the conversation escalates, they separate, feeling regret about the evening. See less
