Cap tries to connect with Sophie Donnelly. She does not like him. He helps her with her driving lessons since her dad bailed out on her.
Sophie Donnelly realizes it was Cap that sent her the bracelet. She goes to Garland to pick him up and bring him to the dance. Only when they get there, there is no dance but a bunch of kids in a parking lot.
Cap thanks all 1,100 kids for being there. He memorized all of their names from studying old yearbooks.
Cap is taken to the foster home of Mrs. Donnelly while Rain goes to rehab. Mrs. Donnelly can relate to Cap because she herself once grew up in the Garland Commune.
