Back inside the tent, Lila dances around a handy pole as Charlie asks if she's always had a beard. Lila simpers, "Ever since I was thirteen." Charlie says, "Me too," and starts to dance with her. Lila tells him, "You come by my tent later, dark and handsome, and I'll show you something else I've had since I was thirteen." It's either her tampon case or a collection of stuffed animals, right?
The camera moves over to catch Jonesy and Libby, staring deep into each other's eyes. Stumpy enters, sees the couple, and freezes.
Sofie and Ben are back inside the truck. They slowly, slowly lean in toward each other and kiss. Then they kiss some more. Ben starts nuzzling Sofie's neck, and then Sofie is treated to a snippet of Apollonia getting raped. And then she sees her mother grabbing her wrist and gasping, "Sofie." Sofie opens her eyes and sees her mother at the window screaming, "Nooooo!" Sofie jerks away from Ben and shrieks, "She's there!" Ben turns to look, and says that nobody's there. Sofie wails, "She's right there, how can you not see her?" Ben tries to calm Sofie down by holding her and saying, "It's the fire. It's making you crazy." Hey, Ben? Telling people that they're being driven insane isn't actually all that reassuring. Although, oddly enough, that does calm Sofie down. Sofie gasps, "She's gone," and turns to look at Ben's hand holding her head. "What did you do?" she asks. Ben and the audience say, "I don't know." Sofie goes back to crying, and slithers into Ben's arms. And then they resume kissing.
Jonesy is complimenting Libby on the dance lessons she's giving him, while Stumpy watches and does a slow burn. Libby does a little twirl into Jonesy's arms, at which point Stumpy snaps, "Get your hands off my baby!" He shoves Jonesy away from Libby and puts up his dukes. Jonesy tries to calm Stumpy down, and Stumpy promptly punches him in the jaw. Libby shrieks and tries to pull Stumpy back as he shouts, "My little girl ain't for sale!" Okay, but she is for rent. I'm just saying. Jonesy says that he doesn't want a fight, so Stumpy punches him again. After recovering, Jonesy gives up on being reasonable and we have a full-fledged brawl. Whee! The carnies helpfully toss the fighters back into each other. They wrestle a bit, and then Jonesy socks Stumpy into a table, and collapses after him. The table collapses under them, and I am heartily amused when some of the carnies point and gasp, "Look at that!"
