The Carnivàle gates. Crowds. Music. Stuff. Samson and most of the cast march up just in time to meet Justin, Iris, and the Knights of Jericho. After a formal exchange of pleasantries, Samson says that, with all the women and children around, he'd like the Knights to leave their weapons behind. Varlyn says, "Sorry, microbe, no can do. We've already had one attempt on Brother Justin's life." Samson snickers, "I read in the papers [that] this codger in the wheelchair took a shot at him!" He points to Balthus, who has been trundled down in his wheelchair. He looks as thrilled as you'd expect. Samson calls to Balthus, "You ain't packin' iron, are ya, fella?" Iris quickly assures Samson that Balthus isn't armed, and asks Justin to disarm the troop. Justin agrees, and Varlyn reluctantly orders his men to leave their guns behind. Justin says, "Now that that's settled, I think my sister and I would like to take a turn in your ferris wheel." Iris looks uncomfortable, and Justin loudly adds that, tonight, Iris is determined to overcome her fear of heights "inspired by the courageous brethren" blah blah blah. Some of the Okies raise their hands and chorus, "Hallelujah." Ruthie and Sabina turn to leave, and Ruthie grumbles, "What a prick." With that, Justin and Iris enter the midway.
Jonesy halts the ferris wheel and opens a car for Justin and Iris. They climb in as Varlyn and his goons watch. The ferris wheel starts up again, and Jonesy nods to Samson. Samson turns and nods to Stumpy. A light is turned on at the ten-in-one, and the Benjamin St. John banner is hauled up as Stumpy begins his revival pitch.
Up at the top of the wheel, Justin and Iris's car stops so that they can enjoy the view. Iris has her eyes pressed shut, and Justin mockingly tells her to open them. He hears Stumpy's pitch in the distance and leans over to see what's going on. Iris complains about Justin rocking the car. Justin leans back and whispers, "Thou shalt be strong." The wheel turns again.
Stumpy has gathered a crowd into the tent, and as some music is cued up, he goes into his introductory spiel about Benjamin St. John. But he's barely introduced himself before Ben says, "That's enough," and wanders onstage, as grubby as ever. Stumpy tries to skip to the end, and bellows, "The riiiiiight Reverend --" Ben cuts him off again, saying, "Enough." He asks them to shut the music off as well, and then asks the crowd, "Which ones of y'all need a healin'?" The Okies start calling and waving their hands. Ben goes into the crowd and finds a boy standing in front of his mother. The mother explains that her son has been deaf since birth. Ben puts his hands on the boy's ears. On the ferris wheel, Justin puts his hands over his own ears and moans in pain. Iris asks him what's wrong. We cut back and forth between the camera swirling around Ben and the deaf kid, and Justin wailing as the ferris wheels spins. There's a lot of spinning, generally. Then Ben removes his hands and claps. The boy jumps at the sound.
