Play #109 (Make-up #22) - Pieces by Lezlie Revelle

Claire is working on a puzzle when she is startled by the arrival of her husband John. John has been on deployment and wasn't scheduled to be back for another month. She can tell there is something strange about his return, but he brushes off her questions, trying to get her to enjoy the little time they have together. He helps her finish her puzzle (which is missing pieces) by putting a polaroid of her into the hole in the puzzle. Then, as there is a knock on the door, he has to leave, but he sort of disappears, and I got the feeling that this knock was the visit from an officer to tell her her husband had died.

It's a cute little script with some nice couple dynamics, and I'm kind of a sucker for that magical last goodbye trope.
