Ordination ceremony. The camera starts in front of Bishop Cromwell's face and rises upward. The congregation sings the Litany of the Saints. We see the priest lying prone at the bishop's feet, his arms stretched out in the traditional crucifixion pose.
With the litany still being performed on the soundtrack, Carter comes into Zack's room just in time for him to die. Carter looks back at Mr. and Mrs. Woodman, biting back tears.
Luka crouches in the sacristy as the litany continues. Suddenly there's a flash to Luka, standing alone, with snow swirling around him. Cut back to present-day Luka, and then another flash -- with an accompanying sound effect like a bomb finding its target -- to three pine coffins, one big and two small. Each has a crucifix on it; the smallest of the three has a teddy bear on it, and the middle coffin, a rag doll. Cut back to present Luka, and then back to the middle coffin, and its rag doll. Now we can also hear a mass being performed in Croatian, and we can hear that the litany in the Chicago church has morphed into the traditional "Anvil Chorus." Just in case we didn't get it. BUT WE GET IT.
Lesbian dinner. We see it from the street, through the restaurant window. Anne is saying, "Vicki is dating guys now, and Carol is getting married to one!" Mitchell gasps, and then explains, presumably to Weaver, "Both of these women marched in every gay-pride parade for the past fifteen years!" The fourth woman -- identified as "Kate" by the captions -- says, "I don't get it." Anne snorts, "I do! You get society's blessing, your family's...." "...survivor benefits, tax breaks," Mitchell adds. "And all you have to do is lay there a few times a week," Anne concludes. The three women who aren't Weaver burst into raucous laughter; Mitchell's laugh is particularly shrill and piercing. What's up with that? Weaver stiffly sits in silence. Mitchell notices her discomfort and puts a hand on her arm, apologizing, "I'm sorry -- we're not usually this bad." Weaver flaps her hands and says, "Oh, it's okay." Anne muses, "Hey! Do you realize that everyone at this table has slept with Kim?" "Oh my god!" Kate marvels. Mitchell chuckles, "Cut it out, you guys!" Anne tells Weaver, "I bet she brought a U-Haul on your second date, right?" Kate giggles. Weaver says, "I don't understand." I didn't either; Sars -- though not a lesbian (not that there's anything wrong with that) said she figured it referred to the propensity of lesbians to move in with each other relatively quickly, and I'll go with that since it seems to make sense. I was trying to think what possible sexual connotations there could be that I wasn't getting, especially after Mitchell tells Weaver, "It's a lesbian joke. A bad one," she pointedly adds, to Anne. Mitchell asks Weaver whether she wants a drink, but Weaver gets up, hoarsely saying that she has to go -- she has an early shift the next day. She tells Kate and Anne that it was nice to meet them both. Anne nods appraisingly. Weaver hurries out.
