Titre original : A Love-Shock Therapy
Susanna claims it was love at first sight, since the time Terry presented himself to the Strasford company. She also confesses to have prevented Terry from meeting Candy in Chicago, by deceiving Candy when she came to look for him in the hotel in Chicago. Susanna runs off in tears, refusing to renounce her love for him in the face of neither Candy or any other woman. Stupefied, Terry admits to himself that he likes Susanna, but it was love at first sight with Candy for him when he met Candy on the boat to Southampton. Patricia requires Candy's help when Alistear has decided to volunteer for the war. He desires to help end the war and admits to feeling useless by inventing stuff that never works. Both Candy and Alistear hope to make Albert remember with shock and simulation therapy, but for opposite motives. Candy hopes Albert will talk Alistear out of enlisting, while Alistear hopes Albert will help to convince great-aunt Elroy to support Alistear's decision. But nothing works. However, when Patricia breaks down during a picnic outing with all of them together and admits to pray for Alistear each morning in church, Alistear finally recognizes how Patricia feels. When Mr. Thomas reveals his past to Candy, the recovery from his amnesia after losing his wife and son in a fire, she understands that if they force Albert to remember, it will also mean he will be emotionally traumatized. Perhaps time is the best remedy after all.
