And there's poor little Max Clayton, lying on a bed in a room with the windows boarded up. In comes Destro, wearing the silver mask, offering Max a candy. Max turns it down. "I don't feel good. I want to go home," he says. His kidnapper -- whose voice sounds much more youthful this time -- recites the little speech about the cleansing fire and the spring of new life. Shoulda taken the candy, kid. As Destro leaves, we see a mechanical device clamped on the back of Max's neck.
Over to Glen Cove -- Jesus, Col. Broyles lives in some kind of hillside compound. His son, with unseeing milky eyes, listens to a classic Shadow radio broadcast, while Col. Broyles goes into the kitchen to kiss his wife hello. She tells him there's been a police officer parked out front all afternoon. "So it's true? The Candyman's back?" she asks. Broyles says yes.
Diane (played by the same woman who played Diane in the other universe, for the record), trying not to get upset, asks her husband if he thinks the Candyman will come back here. "No. It's just for my peace of mind," says Broyles, sounding sincere. He asks after Christopher, and Diane says he's scared, with the story about the missing boy being all over the news. While she gets him something to eat, he tells her Olivia wanted to re-interview Chris. "She thinks there may be some detail he's forgotten. I told her it was a waste of time," he says. Diane says she always liked Olivia: "She seems very smart," she adds, pointedly. Any married man watching this knew right then that Olivia was going to get to interview Christopher. Broyles knows it too, even if he doesn't know he knows it. He just ignores her to take a big pull on his beer, and then just says he's going to go put Christopher to bed. "He's a strong boy, Philip. Strong enough to talk about it, even if you're not," she calls after him. You're never going to believe this, but that doesn't get a response either.
Back in the situation room, Lee brings Olivia some Red Vines, which are apparently new in this universe. They didn't have liquorice over here? What the hell, alt-universe?
