Speaking of public health risks, the State Health Inspector finally rolls up. The Inspector is played by Stephen Tobolowsky, a quintessential Hey, It's That Guy whom you may remember as Sammy Jankis in Memento. Just to confuse you further, his character's name is Jim Pratt. And Jim Pratt is pissed. He pushes his way through the crowd and flashes his badge at Roscoe, who lets him in.
In the gym, Walt is trying to calm down the parents when Pratt arrives. Walt orders the parents and kids to go back to their booths, and steps outside to fill Pratt in on the situation. Pratt is still pissed, and Walt explains that they may have an outbreak of some virus. Pratt wonders what evidence they have. Johnny walks up and Walt introduces him to Pratt.
Meanwhile, Teacher is talking to her husband on the cell phone again. She whispers that Johnny has predicted something, and reminds her husband (and the audience) that Johnny also predicted that fire where the kids died back in the first season.
Pratt is understandably doubtful about Johnny's "psychic premonition," since he's a man of science and all. Although it still bothers me that they made a big plot point previously about how Johnny gets recognized all the time, but then they have characters who live in the area who don't seem to have heard of Johnny. Johnny tells Pratt that he realizes his visions aren't proof of anything, and they need Pratt to run tests. Pratt says sarcastically that he needs to see a sick kid.
Cut to Pratt taking J.J.'s temperature and feeling his lymph nodes while Johnny, Sarah, and Walt stand by, looking nervous. Shouldn't someone be dealing with crowd control in the gym? Walt? Pratt asks J.J. how he's feeling, and J.J. says he's bored. Pratt announces that he knows what he has to do, and rushes out. Cut to Pratt busting into the gym and announcing his name and title, and that he received "a report of a possible contagious health hazard on these premises." Everyone gasps and murmurs. Pratt adds that it's a false alarm, and people can go about their business.
The school doors open, and students and parents hurry outside and greet their family and friends. Walt catches up to Pratt and curses him out. Pratt says that you can't declare an infectious emergency with no symptoms. Johnny stands on the steps and keeps getting bumped by the kids running out. Each bump and jostle causes a vision. Each vision involves children and their parents disappearing, until Johnny is left looking at an empty street. He sees people in hazmat suits loading body bags into a truck. Johnny snaps out of it, and just stands there panting and not blinking.
