    Greg,
    Now I understand the role of the second (inner) reflection
    But your diagram is not quite correct:
    When the ray passes from the air to the glass it is refracted.
    It is also refracted when it comes back from the glass to the air.
    And the outcoming ray is indeed not parallel to the ray reflected
    from the front surface.
    And this is because of these two additional refractions.
    
    Alex.
