Chapter 31 Summary

Tully is worrying about Kate’s relationship with Marah when the McAdams, the family from the live rehab show, come into her office to thank her for the impact she’s had on their lives. Tully is overwhelmed with emotion, as this was what she had aimed to do: change someone’s life. Johnny calls and asks Tully to meet him at a bar; he has something he needs to discuss, out of the office. At the bar, Johnny tells Tully how awful Marah has been to Kate and how worried he is. He asks Tully to talk to Kate and find out if she needs to see a psychiatrist.

Tully decides to kidnap Kate, with Johnny’s help, and take her to a spa. Kate tells her she can’t go, so Tully shoots her with a squirt gun. Ultimately, Kate gives in, grabs the suitcase that Johnny has already packed for her, and puts on the blindfold that Tully insists she wear.

At the spa, Tully has everything planned out. After shots of tequila, Tully and Kate head to a steam pool. There Kate starts to relax, and Tully starts a conversation, hoping to find out what’s wrong. Kate opens up about Marah, and Tully is frightened by the “deep unhappiness” she sees in her best friend.
