Officials come to see Cassia at work. They tell her she did really well on her previous sorting test, and they'll be coming back sometime soon to take her on a real-life sorting test. Really, they needed to show up in person to tell her this? Couldn't have sent a message?
Mom's leaving on another trip. Cassia notices she's taken her green pill. Hmm… those crops must be pretty stressful.
Hiking time. Ky tells Cassia the story of Sisyphus, who rebelled against Society and was punished by having to push a heavy rock up a hill, over and over.
Cassia asks why Ky throws the games—"'I have to,'" he says.
We know you've been dying to know what color Ky's eyes are—according to him they're blue, but according to Cassia they're everything. She realizes she's in love.
Ky confesses his Aberration status. They hold hands, and Cassia realizes, "I cannot go gently now."
