He may not believe, but he is shaken up when he shows up at the airport and the ticket agent calls him by name. Does Richard suspect Satanists will start showing up everywhere? Because that already happened in the Winona Ryder movie about Satanists that really shouldn't scare me but does anyway. Oh, come on! That movie was better than this miniseries so far! And at least the plot kind of made sense. So the ticket agent tries to explain away his recognition of Dr. Richard by saying he resides in Boston, implying that Rich has been the subject of much local media coverage. The agent says he's "sorry" for the doctor's loss, but it kind of looks like he's smirking right after he says it. At least the security guard by the metal detector doesn't sneer at him. He does call Dr. Rich by name, but it's because he's reading his name off the boarding pass, not because of Satan or anything.
We are treated once again to that old technique of using a fake news broadcast for exposition. That never gets stale or tired! In this case, "Satanist Isaiah Haden" is out of solitary confinement and back in the general prison population, at his own request. And that's news? Really? Just how slow a news day does it have to be for this to make it to your television? Especially the part about "an injury to [Isaiah's] hand that required microsurgery." Heh. That is a pretty entertaining reference to his lopped-off finger, but I don't know that I'd call it news, exactly. In other non-news, Isaiah is threatening a hunger strike unless he's given access to the press to deliver his "message."
Richard catches part of this broadcast on the plane. Right before landing, he bothers the flight attendant to fetch his coat. She pretends to give a rat's ass about the coat, but you can tell she'll never get to it. Just then, serious turbulence sets in. Richard gets up to investigate and discovers that there is no one in the cockpit flying the plane! Then he sees that all the passengers have disappeared and his daughter Lucy is in the aisle with her bike. Okay, this is kind of spooky at least, especially when Lucy asks him to help her to heaven and then gets a big red stain on her t-shirt in the general vicinity of where her heart would be if Isaiah hadn't, you know, viciously ripped it out. It's all a hallucination, though. Or is it?
It's enough to make Dr. Richard join Sister Josepha for a visit to the head of the Eklind Foundation in New York. We learn that he decided to get to New York by train. Heh. Who can blame him?
