Anyway, Olivia's mind is working a mile-a-minute on this one, and she lays out her theory: the kids' afflictions upon return are all also symptomatic with old age. Aging has to do with the pituitary gland, which can be accessed through the back of the neck. Two of the victims saw two suspects, one old and one new, but never both at the same time: "What if there was only one person, who was literally changing from old to young? What if the Candyman is stealing youth?" To his credit, Lee doesn't tell her that she's crazy, but acknowledges that, theoretically, concentrated pituitary hormones could be processed to accelerate healing and maybe even reverse aging. "But if it's true, it would also cause some serious side effects," he said. "Anemia, tremors, hypoglycemia." Olivia says, "High blood sugar? High enough that he could secrete sugar in his sweat?" but before she can get all "told you so" on Lee, her phone rings. She listens, and says she'll be there.
And now she's over at Broyles' place, where Diane welcomes her, saying Chris is looking forward to meeting her, and Broyles mostly avoids getting in the way. Olivia goes in to meet Chris, who holds out his hand in her general direction. He is actually thrilled to meet her, and wants to know if it's true that she saved a schoolbus full of kids from a "Class 3 vortex," and Olivia shrugs and says she was just doing her job. Anyway, he knows she wants to have a chat about the man who took him, which he hesitatingly agrees to do, and Olivia suggests they talk somewhere else: his favorite place to go.
He thinks about it a moment, and then the two of them are strolling along the beach like it's the worst online dating service ad you can think of.
Broyles is hanging out around his car watching them when his phone rings: Walternate, wanting an update on the Candyman case -- there's only twelve hours left. Broyles says they don't have anything right now, but they're working every lead they have. Walternate chirpily tells him that he'll have his team back together soon: "Our Olivia's mission on the other side is almost compete, and we'll be able to bring her home." Broyles wants to know what's to be done with this Olivia, and Walternate says they're going to pull her out of the field tomorrow morning, creepily adding, "I don't believe we'll be needing her anymore."
Broyles goes back to watching Christopher and Olivia. Christopher says his dad says he needs to forget what happened. "But it's hard to forget, isn't it? You know, I can imagine what it must have been like for you. How scared you must have been, how much you really wanted to get back to your family and to your friends," says Olivia, who appears to be trying to trigger a post-traumatic stress flashback in this poor kid. Christopher says he has nightmares sometimes: "I always remember the smell first. It's musty, like our attic. He comes to the room wearing a mask to check on that thing stuck in my neck. It feels like ... it's stealing my energy. I'm so tired. I feel sick," he says.
