The Sun is Also a Star: Chapter 86 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
When Natasha arrives back at Attorney Fitzgerald's office, his paralegal's eyes are glittering and she looks like she's been kissed. Flustered, she shows Natasha to Attorney Fitzgerald's office. When she opens the door, Attorney Fitzgerald stares right through Natasha at his paralegal, making Natasha feel as though she's intruding on a private moment. Finally, Attorney Fitzgerald greets Natasha and seems harried as he asks her to sit and explain her situation. Natasha wonders whether she should tell him about Samuel's "aborted dreams," or her own belief that even dead dreams don't die. She decides to start by telling him about the night that her dad ruined her life.
When Natasha notices the relationship between Hannah and Attorney Fitzgerald, it stands as evidence that she's taken some of Daniel's advice to heart and she's now slightly more tuned into the connections between others. To this end, it's telling too that she finally tells Attorney Fitzgerald the whole truth of what happened with her dad, especially since this seems to be the first time she's ever done so.
