In the other room, Elmer says that Sandy isn't seeing the devil, because if he were, he would be dead. Marian asked if Sandy is seeing the Unnamed, and Elmer corrects her and says that Sandy is seeing demons. Miles explains that devils are different from demons, and that demons travel from the underworld to our world. Elmer notes that demons enjoy harassing people until they go insane and harm themselves. In that case, I now consider The Others to be my own personal demon. Dr. Mark Vapidson asks if the eye surgery is connected to Sandy's visions, and Elmer suggests that the eye surgery could have opened a "window to the other side." Albert grumps. Miles goes off on some tangent about human evolution developing some sort of "biological filter" in the eye that prevents humans from seeing the spirits that animals can. He suggests that Elmer and Marian were born without the filter, enabling them to see visions, and that Sandy's filter was somehow damaged. The extreme stupidity of this piece of dialogue actually causes me to bark with laughter. The cat glares and at me and goes to the kitchen. I follow her and fix myself a double shot of créme de chocolat mixed with milk. I don't usually drink alone, but I need to soothe the pain of doing this recap. Créme de chocolate and milk tastes like the fudgiest chocolate milk you've ever dreamed of. Yum. Once I'm back in front of the TV, Elmer says Miles's theory is interesting, but if such a filter does exist he thinks it's located in the mind. He explains that demons "prey" on their victim's fear and that the Others can help Sandy learn to cope with that. Sandy needs to learn to "see" himself to stop the demons. Satori wonders where to start, and Albert bitterly says they shouldn't help Sandy because some things just are they way they are. Elmer suggests that Albert could be the most help to Sandy; Albert growls that he's been living with his problems for thirty-two years and doesn't want any more. Marian asks Albert what happened to him, and he demands to know why she's asking. Miles snaps that Albert should tell Marian what happened because she actually cares about people, unlike Albert. Dr. Mark tries to break in, but Albert tells Miles to go to hell. Marian asks Albert, "Well, do you have a fear or weakness that you need to face to make your demons go away?" and Haunting Music of Self-Realization plays. Albert leans back silently; Dr. Mark gets beeped by Sandy.
