Corrie wonders how she can support her partner during this . She realizes that she has to find the answer within herself.

All the changes create new insights within the relationship and about themself. Hidden flaws and desires for self-development surface. The new situation creates an opportunity for a clean slate and self exploration. The situation brings Corrie and Ashley closer towards each other, surprisingly at moments that might not have been possible before the transition.
