Anyway, Keel goes on to say that he's worried Hannah will continue to slip away; the reincarnated soul inhabited the Indian child's body for the next fifteen years, and the original soul never did come back. Skeet's all stomping around and saying he won't let that happen. I'm not sure why he's so upset, since it seems to me he has a much better chance to score with Lucinda than Hannah. Keel's fingering linen drying on a clothesline as he asks Skeet what he plans to do. Skeet says he'll go to New York to talk to Lucinda's parents. Keel distractedly says that if Skeet thinks that might help, he shouldn't waste any time. He takes a sheet that still has a faded bloodstain on it and rips it, while Emma watches from an upstairs window. So the very blatant Jesus Christ pose Hannah was in at the beginning of the episode was just a big fake-out? Soundgarden's going to be very upset.
That night, Hannah does that sit-straight-up-in-bed-bending-at-the-waist thing that people only do in the movies. Then she goes for a little midnight jog along the road while chanting "Madison 316, across the spire and through the green." A truck passes her, then stops and honks. She waves and runs to catch up.
In New York, Skeet knocks on the door of Lucinda's parents, who apparently are expecting him. He apologizes for intruding and then establishes that they don't know any Amish girls named Hannah, and then tells them she's having spells where she thinks she's Lucinda. "What do you mean she thinks she's our daughter?" says Mr. Bryant. Skeet explains about Hannah saying things Hannah would never know, and repeats her little complaint about the "mother from hell Nazi" who hides the booze. Lucinda's mother closes her eyes. And then the mother from hell Nazi speaks, asking Skeet what he wants from them. "Just your help. We're trying to rule out any possibility of contact between your two families." Mr. Bryant says they don't know each other and that they can't help. Skeet thanks them for their time, and gets up to go. His cell phone rings. It's Evelyn, saying she got the results of the bloodstained sheet they sent her. That quickly? So they sent to sheet to Boston from Pennsylvania, and it got there and was tested and back to Evelyn in the same time it took Skeet to get to New York? Did he go by way of California? Evelyn tells him the blood on the sheet isn't Hannah's; it's the rare AB negative. Paul says nothing for a long time, then finally hangs up the phone. And he asks the Bryants a question, and if you're so stupid you need me to tell you what that question is (or the answer), then thank you for reading my recap, Ms. Hilton. Skeet goes on to ask why Lucinda killed herself. They're not certain why; what they do know is that she was on drugs, and they both carry a lot of guilt for not doing more to intervene. Mr. Bryant says that when you're told over and over again that you're not needed, you start to believe it. "It's not a mistake we'd make again," says Mrs. Bryant. "If we've learned anything in the last ten years, it's that you don't get a second chance." Hold that thought, ma'am. Oh, there's the doorbell! Mrs. Bryant answers it. It's Hannah. "Can I help you?" says Mrs. Bryant. Hannah says, "Look, I'm sorry, I know I should have called. Don't get all depressive, okay?" Then she says, "You were right. They stole my bag. Loser model freaks," as she breezes into the apartment past a speechless Mrs. Bryant. Don't expect Skeet to make the introductions, as he's too busy making the Skeet Face. And Hannah, that is, Lucinda, asks Mrs. Bryant if she's done something with her hair, and Mrs. Bryant recoils from her touch, and Hannah's confused because she looks "old." Then she acknowledges her dad's existence with a "Hey, D," which cracked me up, oddly enough. Dad doesn't even say anything. He just goes to his wife's side as she gets all teary-eyed and says, "It's her. It's her!"
