Cut to Sister Jude speaking to Wendy at home. Wendy wants to see Lana right away, as her close friend. "We're like sisters." "But you're not sisters," Sister Jude says, knowing exactly the score and exactly what she needs to do to push her advantage. She spots a photograph on the mantle of Wendy with her students and speaks cryptically of the sacred duty of molding young minds and how Wendy would never intentionally endanger those children. She speaks of Lana and her "inversion," her homosexuality.
Back in Briarcliff, Sister Jude tells Lana that we both know the nature of Lana's "so-called monster in the closet." She says that something in Lana knew she needed help and that's why she came here.
Back with Wendy, Sister Jude says that Lana was caught trespassing in her mental ward. She came there under false pretenses, having no intention of writing about their bakery. You guys, Sister Jude was really counting on that publicity for the bakery. I think she's honestly hurt. "She wanted an inside look at a mental ward," Jude says, "and I intend to see that she gets it." Obviously, Wendy won't stand for this, but Sister Jude lays her threat bare: either Wendy signs a document swearing to Lana's compromised mental condition or Sister Jude exposes their little "love nest" and ruins Wendy's life. A distraught Wendy reminds Sister Jude that she has no legal standing to commit Lana, remember. Sister Jude's response basically adds up to "Yeah, yeah, legal mumbo jumbo, we'll make it work for the sake of the narrative." Sister Jude's got the deck stacked in her favor anyway: either Wendy signs Lana's life away or Sister Jude exposes the lesbian affair and has Lana committed on that basis. Her back against the wall, Wendy asks for the pen.
Back with Lana, a disingenuous Sister Jude says, "We're gonna slay that monster together, you and I." As she leaves, Lana calls after her. "Come back here, you bitch!" Her screaming is fairly effectively muffled once the door is closed. Out in the hall, Sister Eunice brings Sister Jude a set of keys that she stole, despite clear stone-tablet-based directives not to. Jude's like, "I hope that was the only Commandment you had to break to get these. Sister Jude takes the keys and approaches the door with the slot. Inside, she finds no monster. Er... well, that's not necessarily true. She finds Dr. Arden, cleaning up with a mighty strong disinfectant. There are claw marks on the wall -- something's been living here. Whatever creature was in here, whatever attacked Lana, Arden's had it removed and is playing dumb about it, saying the room's been empty for months and he just needs it for storage. Sister Jude doesn't buy it for one second and promises to ferret out whatever he's hiding. Of course, Dr. Arden is ready with a story about how he used to have a ferret for a pet, until it bit him, so he broke its neck. Yada yada, Dr. Arden is sadistic. Sister Jude calls after him that her eyes are wide open and she'll figure out what he's up to. He just smirks his god-emperor smirk at her and walks away.
