Ivan's and Kit's dance had me in tears. Kelly Lynch really knows how to push the buttons in her performance as Ivan, holding up to Kit the possibility of something she had not contemplated. And then Jenny's sudden realisation that she wanted neither Robin nor Gene to leave: both friends, lovers and well-wishers, wanting to protect her from the person who had really hurt her. The possible realisation that she could feel towards more than one lover, that polyamory is a real concept.
