Jason-cam films Max D'Angelo on his boat. He agrees to talk with them on-camera to try to get some "publicity for Delaney" and reveals that he was the last one to see her. He declines to talk about their "personal stuff" but does say that Delaney is "not dead" because her "spirit lives on." Also, he didn't get along with Delaney's mom. Imagine that? Could this character be any more of a stereotype? Working-class boyfriend, parents don't approve, kind of creepy. Why don't they just name him Ray Pruitt and get it over with?
Jason and Derek are now at Delaney's mother's house (a.k.a. Mrs. Park). Pan over a piano covered with photos of Delaney. Mrs. Park tells them about the efforts to find Delaney when she first went missing, but they never found her. Ethan Embry looks like a deer caught in the headlights. Still. Mrs. Park tells them that Delaney was supposed to go to Julliard, so apparently that is her piano. Mrs. Park breaks down, and Derek and Jason offer to leave, and then I guess they do leave, although we never see it.
Daphne goes into the nursery and stares at the crib, and then she turns to see...Derek! Cheap scare number two of this episode. Derek apologizes all over the place. Do you think it's good for a pregnant woman to keep getting scared like that? Derek, Jason, and Chloe show Daphne the printout of Delaney from the Missing Person Registry. At first, Daphne says she doesn't know Delaney, but then she starts getting flashbacks and starts crying. We see flashbacks of Delaney standing in the road, and Daphne driving, and Daphne keeps saying, "I think I hurt her." And then...commercial.
A younger and not pregnant Daphne is driving a truck down the street and rocking out to a song by Econoline Crush. Quick side note -- my friends' band opened for them when they played here, and the guitar player is the scariest and funniest looking thing I have ever seen. And the lead singer was channeling Sebastian Bach. That is all. Okay, so Daphne is singing, and she sees a girl standing by the road hitchhiking. Hey, it's Delaney Park. What a coincidence! Daphne pulls over, and Delaney runs up the truck. Cut to present day, and we see that Daphne has been hypnotized by Chloe, and is revealing this information to the gang as we see it. Apparently, hypnotism is a standard psychology technique these days. Who knew? Daphne reveals that she doesn't normally pick up hitchhikers, but she's mad at Ted and wants someone to talk to. In flashback, Delaney tells Daphne she wants to leave town with her boyfriend, but he won't go. Daphne asks if she wants to "relax and kill some brain cells" and says that "the lighter is in the glove compartment." Delaney says she can't, and Daphne's all, "What are you, pregnant or something?" Yeah, because unless you're pregnant, there aren't any reasons why you wouldn't want to smoke pot. That was a pretty flimsy plot device, there. Delaney is, of course, pregnant, and she's supposed to "take care of it." Daphne asks how she feels about it, and Delaney thinks she should have the baby. They discuss men for a while and laugh.
