I hadn't really thought about _why_ the nurse would help him. She risked her job, her car, and possible criminal charges. Motherhood seems a compelling reason; I just hope she wasn't the same greedy nurse who nailed poor Bailey! Then again, maybe she was. Maybe the story was true about North catching her in the act; he blackmailed Gloria into helping him. >The conversation at the beginning of chapter 34 may indicate that >North knows Lara. My opinion is that he was her lover as well (although >it appears that he doesn't know she's the Goddess, unless he's lying >about that as well). It's hard for me to think of the Goddess choosing North. His personality is so different from Green or Klamm. The only thing I see in favor of his having been her lover is his name; but if that's enough to establish a link, then I'll bet that W.F. was her lover as well, somewhere along the line, and I get no hint that he was a Visitor. I took that conversation as indicating that North was surprised to learn that Green knew Walsh's lawyer, and thought Green had been conspiring behind his back during those four months he had been missing. -Roy --
