Back in the present, outside their much crappier current digs, Lily tells Henry, "We didn't want to scare you, but they can find you." He's still pissed, though, and continues to act like a big crybaby. "It wasn't his idea to run," Lily finally tells him. "It was mine. If you want to blame someone, blame me." But he just says, "I love you, Mom," and drives off. I guess he'll decide on the blaming thing later.
Of course, Henry's perfect girlfriend back in his perfect life is the captain of the cheerleading squad, and we see her finish captaining for the day as her friend invites her for food with everyone. But she blows them off in favor of homework. Popular and smart. So why's she with Henry? The friend's cell phone rings, and she hands it to Kylie, saying it's Kylie's dad, who's been trying to reach her. "What?" Kylie crabs into her friend's phone.
"It's me," Henry says from yet another pay phone. I don't know how he keeps finding them in this day and age. Kylie asks her friend for a moment alone with her friend's cell phone, and asks Henry where he is. "Somewhere. I don't know," Henry says. Something tells me that maybe Tommy isn't just a late bloomer. They have an emotional conversation, saying that they love each other. "I'm coming home," Henry tells her. She asks what about his family, not even wondering about all the police that will surely be waiting for him when he arrives. She asks if his dad really killed "that girl." "I don't know," Henry answers.
That somehow triggers a flashback to a scene that Henry wasn't even there for. We see Paul, kneeling over Erin's twitching body as she bleeds out on her apartment floor from a slashed throat. "Erin, who did this to you?" Paul asks desperately, then picks up the phone and dials 911. Erin's tiger-striped cat watches the whole scene impassively from the couch. That cat sucks. I can promise you that if I were dying on my floor in a puddle of my own blood, my cats would be fighting over each other to lick it up.
