Dex slides open the door at Lila's loft, and finds the kids on the bed watching TV. Cody says, "Hi, Dexter!" as if nothing is strange at all, and Dexter runs up to the lofted area where they are. "Hey, guys, you havin' fun?" Dex asks, trying not to panic so the kids stay calm. "Super fun!" says Cody. "Lila's so nice!" "Where is Lila?" Dexter asks. "I'm ovah heah," says Lila, now standing in the doorway next to a large drape and a candelabra. Dex wheels around and their eyes meet. "You could've had it all, Dextah," she says. After a pause, she pushes the candelabra over, instantly setting the large drape on fire. Dexter jumps over the loft to the front door as Lila slams it shut and padlocks it so he and the kids can't get out. Damn, that's fucked up, dude. Dexter tells the kids to stay on the bed and not move as he tries to jimmy the door open. Outside, Lila hovers for a moment, then leaves. Inside, Cody cries out for Dexter as the whole place gets engulfed in flames, and Dexter sprints back up to the loft. He tells the kids to both look away as he slams open a window with his foot and clears all the glass away. Being a loft-style window, it's large enough for the kids to pass through, but too small for a full-grown man, so Dexter thinks fast. He pads it with a cushion and slips Astor and Cody out to safety, as the fire turns into an inferno. Once they're out, he tells them to go call for help. They're good kids, and they're probably familiar with 911 since they did have FND as a dad, so they run for help. Inside, Dexter fights the flames and tries to find a way out. He drops to the ground to avoid smoke inhalation, and grabs the candelabra, hoping to use it as a makeshift crowbar to jimmy the door open with. Unfortunately, this plans fails, and he falls back to the ground, coughing violently. He notices that the plaster on the walls is beginning to peel back, revealing the beams and sticks holding it up, and apparently this sight inspires a flashback.
