Guidance counselor's office. He's doing reports or marking assignments or something when he hears a noise, just like the priest. He gets up to investigate and gets his ass beat down and thrown around, just like the priest, and we go to commercials after he sprays a bunch of blood on the door, and I wonder if this show wants us to root for the killer.
Words cannot describe how much I loathe the Dr. Pepper commercial with Run-DMC in which the sample of "Run-DMC and Jam Master Jay" is changed to "Run-DMC and Dr. Pepper." And to think I ripped off "Tricky" in a recap! To hilarious effect!
Anyway, Travis wakes up to find the strange older man watching over him, like, maybe ABC is showing that Michael Jackson special AGAIN. "I did it again!" he says, but Skeet assures him that he didn't move all night. Then we hear Sheriff Loco yelling for Travis, sending him scurrying off. And we see that Travis's dad is just in the driveway and it takes Travis all of about ten seconds to run home, so this shack with the path leading up to it is right behind the house, but no one else knows about it right. And Sheriff Loco wants to know where the hell Travis has been, and Travis admits that he slept in the woods but before his dad can beat an explanation out of him, he sees Skeet. Sheriff Loco orders Travis into the car, then demands to know what Skeet was doing with his son in the woods. Skeet ignores the implied accusation and tells him that Travis has been trying to stay awake all week, because he's dreaming about the murders, thinking he's somehow involved. "What the hell are you talking about?" says the sheriff. Travis tries to say something, but his dad tells him to shut up, and Travis meekly gets into the car, spurring a Big Revelation for Skeet, who pointedly asks the sheriff how Travis got his black eye. The sheriff just glares at Skeet before responding to the radio operator, who tells him there's been a fatality just like the others at the high school. Skeet overhears this, and Sheriff Loco tells dispatch he's on his way, but not before warning Skeet to stay away from his son under penalty of jail.
