Suddenly, though, the sound of his voice comes rebounding back to him, describing the first victim's fuzzy peach skin. It's Kit, in the next room, playing the recording he just made of Thredson's confession. Ollie calls Lana a bitch and accuses her of making up the pregnancy to manipulate him. No, she says, that part's true. Or was. She tells him that she took care of it last night, and we get choppy footage of her cleaning up the "bloody mess" on the floor. Thredson calls her a monster, but she does him one better: she pledges to take a knife after her next bakery shift, come back, and slit his throat. "I always wanted to know what it was like inside the mind of a killer," she tells him. "Now I know." I know I've been behind on some of the guessing games this season, but I'm calling it now: Lana takes up the mantle of Bloody Face at some point.
Elsewhere, Kit secrets out the reel of Thredson's confession and goes to hide it in the tub room. You know, the tub room. With the tubs. I guess technically it would be a "bathroom," since it's the room with the baths in it, but calling a room a "bathroom" when it doesn't have any toilets just doesn't seem right. It also brings up another strange inconsistency of the English language.
Hi, where were we? So Kit wraps the reel in a towel and hides it under a tub. Just then, Dr. Arden appears in the doorway, full of that "Well, what do we have here?" kind of falsely genial talk. He says he's glad he ran into Kit, since they have so much to discuss. Time for more exploratory surgery? Arden leads Kit out, then looks back suspiciously at the tubs.
After the break, they're in Dr. Arden's office, Arden lighting a cigarette for Kit and pouring him a glass of the "18 year old single-malt" he keeps in his office, and thus preserving my eternal wariness for people who describe their scotch thusly. He's clearly trying very hard to be nice, which only arouses Kit's suspicions further. Arden finally produces the piece of concrete with the alien footprint in it and tells Kit that he's seen the aliens too. Ever the man of science, Arden surmises that they're a technologically advanced race. He tells Kit about how they took Grace, and Kit wonders what they'd want with her. Arden has a hypothesis, one that's confirmed by Kit, who says he had sex with both Alma and Grace before they were abducted. Arden figures they're working on some sort of eugenics program (he'd know). He thinks he can use Kit to lure them back. Kit, beautiful creature that he is, is like, "Buh?" "A good scientist protects his subject," he says, and he theorizes that if Kit's life were threatened, they would intervene. Kit: "What are you saying?"
