Jacob and Esau play Senet in a clearing. When Jacob moves his white piece both forward and SIDEWAYS, Esau moves it back, telling him he can't. Jacob: "Why?" Esau says it's against the rules. Jacob: "You made the rules." Esau says, "I found it. One day, you can make up your own game, and everyone else will have to follow your rules." YOU DIG IT? Esau's good-natured smile fades when he notices a beautiful young woman standing some distance behind his brother. It's Claudia. Has her gown faded over the years, or does it just look that way because she's dry? Anyhow, she's bathed in amber light. "It's all right. Don't be afraid." Some people think she's Smokey in smokin' form, but because "fear not" is how angels typically introduce themselves in Scripture, I think this is actually Claudia's spirit; Esau can see her because he's special. Anyhow, Jacob notices Esau's attention has been diverted, but he neither sees nor hears this apparition of his mother, so he says, "What? What's wrong?" Esau doesn't give a direct answer. Instead he rises. "I'm going for a walk to the beach. I'll meet you later."
Esau runs until he finds Claudia a bit away. Finally, she says, "Hello." Esau keeps his distance. "Why can't Jacob see you?" Claudia: "Because I'm dead." Because you're special. When Esau reels back slightly, she adds, "Will you come with me? I'd like to show you something [...] where you came from. It's across the island -- a place you've never seen."
Esau follows Claudia until they reach the outskirts of Camp Nameless. The campers there are busy little bees, bustling in and out of their straw huts that look so familiar -- to us, if not to Esau. He asks his guide who those people are. Claudia: "They came here 13 years ago -- the day before you were born. Their ship was wrecked in a storm." Esau: "Ship? What's that?" Good thing he's cute. Claudia explains that a ship is a form of water transportation. "It's how we came across the sea." Esau protests: "There's nothing across the sea." Claudia: "There are many things across the sea. You come from across the sea, too." And you knew that, Esau, because you just know things. Esau seems to fight back tears. "No. That's not true. That's not what my mother told me." Claudia smiles. "She's not your mother; I am." He swallows hard and looks away. Esau has two mommies! CJ manipulated him, lied to him, and messed with his head. Now Claudia is leading him further astray. Mommies rule; Daddies drool...so yay, or um...something.
