Back in the kitchen, to Rose's horror, the Doctor sticks his finger in a jar of marmalade. She clears her throat and shakes her head at him. They are fairly adorable. Trish just stares at him, and he puts the jar back down meekly. "Those pictures, they're alive," says Rose. "She's drawing people and they end up in her pictures." The Doctor tries to explain: "Ionic energy. Chloe's harnessing it to steal those kids and place them in some kind of holding pen made up of ionic power." And the "dad from hell?" Rose asks. "How many times do I have to tell you? He's dead." Rose makes a very irritating face at her: "Well, he's got a very loud voice for a dead bloke." The Doctor does some e=MC² and figures out that it goes both ways. "Chloe's real dad is dead, but not the one who visits her in her nightmares. That dad seems very real. That's the dad she's drawn, and he's a heartbeat away from crashing into this world..." Trish admits that Chloe "always got the worst of it when he was alive," and Rose asks how a twelve-year-old girl could even be doing any of this. The Doctor thinks: "Let's find out." His hair looks really cute in this episode. Everyone trudges back upstairs.
