Ree dresses Connie in a hat and a coat and leads her outside. They walk along a trail, and Ree remembers a time before her mother was ill, when they used to take such walks often. After a while, Ree and her mother sit on a tree stump for a rest. Ree pleads with her mother to help her decide what to do, but her mother is unresponsive. Ree pulls her mother to her feet, and they start the walk back to the house.
