With Austin Theory charmed by his trip (via a white van after being chloroformed) to Dexter Lumis’ house and Indi Hartwell full on crushing on the dead-eyed caricaturist, Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae decided to take their “kids” to therapy.
It didn’t go well.
As Theory was still defending his kidnapper and Hartwell daydreaming about Lumis, Johnny snatched Indi’s doodle pad from her...

... and proceeded to have a meltdown. The counselor, who already asked everyone but Austin to leave, tried to calm him down, but Johnny did not want to be therapied on (say it out loud, when you’re sure no one is around).
Gargano tried to text instructions to his wife from outside the door, but he wasn’t that slick.
After a sneaky strategy by @JohnnyGargano, now @CandiceLeRae & @indi_hartwell got shown "The Way", leaving @austintheory1 all by himself in therapy!#WWENXT pic.twitter.com/QaqNmsqjPd— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) March 4, 2021
Or was he? Turns out he cut a deal with the therapist to tell Theory that Dexter Lumis hates him. Being a simpleton, the poor guy fell for it. And he was heartbroken.

We will ever find out what really happened between @austintheory1 & @DexterLumis? #WWENXT @CandiceLeRae @indi_hartwell pic.twitter.com/p4TOq6l6qh
This doesn’t solve the Indi problem, and if someone can figure out how to talk sense to Theory, he’s not gonna be happy with The Way either.
For now, Johnny therapied on all of them.
