Blipvert. Stu walks down a darkened street (which looks a lot like the street we saw from Chloe's narration of The Harbingers earlier.) Suddenly, he screams and something attacks him. Commercial.
While arriving at their bed and breakfast, the gang discusses the fact that it seems Adam promised to get Ashcroft's book republished, and left his camera there as "some form of collateral." Derek opens the door, and Stu rushes at him with an axe. Derek gets the door closed just in time. Derek realizes that Lan is in there, and goes charging in. The axe is lying on the floor, and Stu is nowhere to be found. The gang searches the room frantically. Lan runs in from some other room, and Derek gives her way more than a friendly hug. Hmm. Is it wrong that I really want them to get together? Mostly because it would make me so happy to see the boy pick the smart one (Lan) instead of the beautiful one (Chloe). Anyway, Derek asks if Lan is okay, and Lan continues to look confused, and yet happy, that Derek is holding her and kissing her on the forehead. Chloe tells Jason that "something very strange [is] going on."
Some time later, Derek walks into the room after talking to the cops. He says that Stu reserved a room in a nearby motel, but never checked in, so now no one knows where he is, and they're all going to sleep together tonight. Jason's all, "All right!" and Lan's all, "You wish."
After a weird cut, where Derek is walking into the room with the tape (even though he was just in the room moments ago), they get ready to watch it. Lan tells Jason quietly that she thinks they should let Derek and Chloe watch the tape alone because "it's personal." Chloe overhears and says that they can stay. Lan says she's going downstairs. Alone? With crazy Stu on the loose? After she leaves, Jason says he'll go with her, and shakes his head. Something weird is going on with Jason. Derek and Chloe pop in the tape.
On the tape, Adam gives some background on the Ashcroft situation, while we see the author handing out copies of his book to largely uninterested passersby. Cut to Adam greeting Shop Girl (whose name is Tamara). Chloe looks uncomfortable. Adam starts to interview Ashcroft, who doesn't want to discuss "the booze or the ex-wife." Ashcroft is crochety. Adam asks, "Why haven't they stopped you?" Ashcroft looks shocked and tells Adam to turn the camera off. Cut to Adam saying that Ashcroft confirmed everything, then says, "Note to self: do not forget to get Tamara's number. She's a cutie. Derek, you're going to love her. She's just your type. And remember to get Chloe's ring. Be sure the inscription's right." Aw, see? He wasn't having an affair with Shop Girl! He was scoping her out for Derek. Chloe and Derek look relieved.
