Is she there to just to see how he is doing, or to catch-up on old times? Or is she there to chip away at Mr Dodgson’s lifetime’s work?

Not Talking
If you don’t talk about it, did it really happen? James loves Lucy but he’s avoided facing the battle with her. She knows. Amanda has been through hell and back but can’t tell Mark. He knows. Will suppressing everything mean it’ll just go away?
