She needs to concentrate on things within her control. She plans to get Grey Gables back on its feet whatever it takes.
At her 50th, Susan's in the mood to party and can't believe how much effort everyone has gone to. Tracy seems to have invited everyone from Susan's past including Gregory, a chap from school and now a successful businessman. She doesn't really remember him but he's bought her a very generous gift. Neil feels a little jealous when Gregory admits to carrying a torch for Susan at school. He admits to Neil that he hasn't been successful in all areas in his life and that Neil's a lucky man.
When Neil eventually gets Susan to himself he gives her a gold locket. Susan admits to feeling like the luckiest woman in the world.
