At Sandy's house, I presume, Sandy is rifling through his silverware drawer and grabs two forks. He hears flapping and gobbling and sees a blurry demon clinging to the ceiling and one sneaking out from behind the fridge. He kneels on the ground screaming and tries to shield himself as papers fly about the room and the demons menace him. He points the forks at his eyes, obviously intending to Oedipus Rex himself. Screaming, lights flashing, demons lurking. Sandy drops the forks and grabs them again but is stopped by Dr. Mark, who has entered the kitchen with Satori, Marian, and Miles. Sandy crouches on the ground, his eyes clenched tight, sobbing that he's never going to open them again. He has scratches under his left eye where it looks like he scraped himself with one of the forks.

Marian enters the movie theater and sits behind Albert, who is watching Shane. Albert grumbles at Marian for finding him at the theater but then asks if she has seen the movie. Marian hasn't, of course, and Albert says that his father loved the film. His father always wanted him to see it, but he didn't because he wasn't interested in his father's movies. Now, however, he loves the movie even though he has never had a chance to actually see it. Marian and Albert are my worst-nightmare movie patrons, having their bitchy little conversation in outside voices. If I was in that audience, you can bet I'd be shushing them. Albert tells Marian to close her eyes and listen in order to experience what it's like being him. Hold on a second -- Dr. Mark got beeped by the obviously panicked Sandy, but Marian and Albert just trundled off to the movies to have a long conversation? Whatever. Marian closes her eyes and mentions that the silences in the movie are evocative and that the experience is "different." Albert snaps at her for that, and then mentions the images she's been seeing in his head. "The Ghost Patrol?" prompts Marian. Albert tells his war story about the heavy fog on the night of the patrol, an evil fog. They'd been under heavy attack for a month and he'd been maintaining control, but in the fog he became very scared because he couldn't see. The patrol leader made a hand signal, and Albert was so frightened that instead of signaling back, he whispered out loud, "I can't see." That gave away the patrol's position and twenty-three men died. Albert notes that it was as if he'd cursed himself with his words. He lost his sight, and every night since that night he relives the patrol in his dreams. His only other sight comes in the form of psychic visions that he wishes he didn't have. Albert wishes his life could have been different and admits that he's never told this story to anyone before. He crankily amends that he only told her because he figured she would see it in his mind sooner or later. Marian notes that the vision always stops at the hand signal given by the patrol leader. Albert says he can't help Sandy because he can't face his own demons, even after so many years. Marian puts her hand on Albert's arm and they watch Shane.
