After a blipvert (tm Strega), Derek is awakened by Chloe, who tells him it's time to go to Cassadaga. Chloe picks up the book on Derek's lap, and notes that it's The Harbingers, and that Adam loved that book. Derek says groggily that he just had a dream about Adam, and Chloe says that she dreams about him all the time. Chloe asks to borrow the book, and Derek asks her to "please, get it out of [his] face." Just then, the salsa music starts back up as Lan walks in. Derek almost makes to kiss her, like in his dream, but she shoves a bag at him -- "two days' worth of clothes, and a toothbrush." Derek wonders why she packed his bag for him, and she doesn't understand it herself, and makes to leave. Derek runs after her, all "thank you so much!" Lan looks embarrassed, yet flattered, and says, "Shut up!" before beating a hasty retreat, just as Jason walks in the door. He makes a joke about Lan being in love. Derek asks if Jason is okay, since he seems a bit less upbeat than usual. Jason says he just hasn't "had [his] breakfast burrito yet," and walks out. Derek stares at the picture of Adam and him on the desk, and then picks up the phone, but there's only a dial tone. We focus in on the phone, as we hear Derek walk out of the house. After the door slams, the phone starts ringing a weird ring, like one long, continuous ring. Creepy!
Finally, credits. I actually kind of like the theme song to this show. What is wrong with me? Hey, and the credits are longer than they used to be, aren't they?
Chloe voice-overs, obviously reading from The Harbingers about the town of "Valley Vista," also known as Cassadaga. Apparently, it's some sort of retreat town for "mystics." We see the town sign, which says, "When the spirit moves you, you move here!" Chloe reads about a creepy town as we see a man walking down a creepy street. Then a little alien-looking thing bloodily attacks him.
Cut to present-day JasonCam, as Chloe laughingly shuts the book, saying that it's no wonder that it's out of print. Jason claims Ashcroft writes like "a bricklayer." Derek protests that Ashcroft is "local color." Jason is sick of talking to "scam artists" who claim to communicate with the dead. Chloe suggests talking to "a real dead guy," -- Ashcroft. Luckily, they are right outside the café where Ashcroft used to take his "tea time." Turns out it wasn't tea he was drinking -- there's a beer named after Ashcroft, according to the menu. Derek reads the description of the ale: "In honor of the late and not so great horror novelist, who spent the last eight years of his life standing on a curb in the center of town, handing out free Xeroxes of The Harbingers, his one and only book." The kids get a good laugh out of that.
