As Sara and Wayne complete their trip through the middle of the U.S., they reflect on Sara's trauma story and how she continues to take on the ramifications of darkness that held her captive for so long. She talks about the exhaustion of sorting through the coping mechanisms that helped her survive in times of threat but now hold her back from living wholeheartedly. By recognizing them and acknowledging their failure to keep her say, she can look for the options that life and love would give her. As she is coming to rest in knowing she will have what she needs as life unfolds, she will no longer need to navigate the anxiety of her worst-case scenarios.
