Burroughs: "The Ancient Egyptians postulated seven souls. Top soul and the first to leave at the moment of death is Ren, the Secret Name. This corresponds to my Director. He directs the film of your life from conception to death. The Secret Name is the title of your film. When you die, that's where Ren comes in." Accompanying this passage, we see Vito showing off his weight loss in what appears to be an ad for "Thin Club," probably a nod to the actor's time on Celebrity Fit Club, and Janice breastfeeding a baby and not looking too happy about it.

Burroughs: "Second soul, and second one off the sinking ship, is Sekem: Energy, Power, Light. The Director gives the orders, Sekem presses the right buttons." Bobby Baccala is playing with some model trains while wearing an engineer's cap. Suddenly, he's turned into John Patterson from For Better or For Worse. Gene Pontevorco reads a letter and then hugs his wife and jumps up and down in glee.

Burroughs: "Number three is Khu, the Guardian Angel. He, she, or it is third man out." Meadow performs a dance for Finn in her bra and panties. Interestingly, she's dancing in front of the TV, which is on and showing what looks like the History Channel. Is she annoyed that Finn was watching TV and trying to distract him? Have Finn and Tony discussed their shared love of shows about Hitler?

Burroughs: "Number four is Ba, the Heart, often treacherous." Another TV shows footage of what looks like President Bush rebuilding houses somewhere, perhaps the Gulf Coast. For those of you trying to narrow down the timeline, it's clearly post-Katrina. Anyway, speaking of "treacherous," Ray Curto runs on a treadmill in front of the TV.

Burroughs: "Number five is Ka, the Double, most closely associated with the subject. The Ka, which usually reaches adolescence at the time of bodily death, is the only reliable guide through the Land of the Dead." AJ sits in the back of what looks like a college classroom and takes pictures of himself making funny faces with his cell-phone camera. Then we see footage of an unfinished house as the voice-over pauses for a moment. So are we to think that AJ is Tony's double, and that the house will be what leads to Tony's death? I'm probably reading too much into it. But clearly those images were shown in that order for a reason. Anyway, we go inside the house as Carmela and...Adriana! What? Carm and Ade are walking around the house. Carm says that a family will live in the house when it's finished, by October, adding, "I'm worried, Ade." Adriana says that everybody is, and Carm replies, "No. I am worried, all the time." Carm grabs Ade's cigarette and takes a drag as Adriana fades from existence and our screens, clearly a dream or mirage. Burroughs: "Number six is Khaibit, the Shadow, Memory, your whole past conditioning from this and other lives." Carmela wakes up in her bed, looking shocked and upset. Burroughs: "Number seven is Sekhu, the remains."
