Dr. Richard has difficulty concentrating on his science-y stuff because he keeps thinking about Josepha and the "map" she gave him. Finally he opens up a box of cards his daughter has given him over the years and finds one with a picture of a donkey on it. It is almost identical to the one on ComaGirl's tic-tac-toe -- I mean, "map" -- except Lucinda's says "Daddy" underneath it. I must have dozed off and missed the flashback where she jokes that that's how she spells "jackass."
Commercial time. Hey, look -- it's a promo for the Revelations pilot. That's right, the very episode you're watching right now. Because it's so good you have to watch it again on Sunday? You want to record it so you can watch it even more times? I finally realized that this may have been meant for people who had tuned in late and wanted to catch the show from the beginning. It took me a while to figure that out, though, as I was so busy pondering the implausibility of the first two options I mentioned.
"Unless they see signs and wonders, they will not believe." (John 4:48) Dr. Richard has decided to go to Miami after all. Well, not that it's really so surprising, since this is only a six-part miniseries and we're almost done with part one. Sister Josepha has a Bible quote for every occasion, and she's definitely not shy about trotting them out. She tries to tell him that "most people find it comforting." And every so often, there's some intentionally funny and sharp writing in this show -- like now, when Richard replies, "I doubt that."
Richard is talking tough about how he wants to be present for any medical reviews pertaining to ComaGirl and how he has to examine her x-rays. Right, because his astrophysics background has gone so far in furthering his understanding of medicine. He keeps stressing his belief in science while she is, like, totally not about science at all. See, they're completely different! Isn't that wacky? And how can they possibly work together when they have opposing viewpoints? I mean, I don't think I've ever seen anything like on TV or in a movie before. Have you?
