“Thank you, Vincent”



Catherine’s father suffers a severe stroke, leaving him apparently completely paralyzed.  Before he dies, Catherine and Vincent come to see him in his hospital room.  Catherine tells her father of Vincent and Vincent promises to love and protect Catherine until his last breath.  At the funeral she reads a selection from The Velveteen Rabbit.  Unable to deal with her grief alone, she asks Vincent if she can come Below.  While there, she and Vincent discuss the possibility of Catherine permanently living in the tunnels.  One night, the spirit of her father visits her in her chamber.  After the encounter, Catherine realizes that now is not yet the time for her to move Below.  Before she returns to her world, she thanks Vincent for his loving support and understanding with a kiss.
