You enter Gareth's home to find him alone thinking. This leads to a conversation revealing Gareth wasn't close with any of his family. You press him and he reveals that he thinks of his master Edmond. Pressing him more on how he feels about Tabitha, he comments with some strain that he thinks of her as an "annoying" older sister. Just at that moment, Tabitha enters and begins to antagonize you and Gareth. After a small bout of banter back and forth you reveal to her what Gareth had previously said. Gareth of course, denies this, but Tabitha believes it anyways leaving in a much
better mood than before.

Afterwards, Gareth says that he takes back what he said about her, wishing she'd leave the island altogether and admit defeat. You express anger and Gareth explains he was only making a jest, and that he seriously doubts she'll ever leave the island, as long as Edmond remains there.
