In/Exhale Continues

I wanted to start off by thanking those of you who commented last week, encouraging me to keep posting. I'll admit there are extenuating circumstances in my life, but there was a point where I got so low (yeah, Kai's story doesn't come from thin air, remember?) that I didn't even want to write I/E anymore because I felt like there wasn't a point to it. I've pulled myself up past that a little, and seeing how much some of you enjoy the story really helped. So I just wanted to say thank you.

But enough about that. You want to know what's happening this week, right?

What to expect from this week's episode: So the day finally ends with David accidentally revealing something upsetting about Kai to Renee, and the long awaited moment in which we see how Jon and Kai's relationship survived the last few months.

If you recall, toward the end of Season Two, Kai asked David to retrieve his mother's medical files from JMH, since he was determined that if he could understand her mental illness, he could understand his own. David initially resisted, but ultimately gave in and tracked the records down to a locked file cabinet in Jon's office. Jon had stolen the files--why, David couldn't entirely be sure--and against his better judgment took them and put them in Kai's car so that when things blew over, Kai could consult them. Though David still warned Kai (despite not reading them) that he should forget about the past and focus on the future, on getting better.

But it's been months since that conversation, and whatever happened to those files?

Find out in this week's episode...
