And Tru has apparently figured out that something's going on, because we see her sprinting down yet another hallway in slow motion while the Portentous Music pushes her ever onward.
Back at the pool, Mr. Connor tells Candace that he's been trying to write a novel for years, without success. He mentions that now he's seeing his own students pass him by. Candace says she thought Mr. Connor would be proud. He is, he says, but repeats again that Candace has done something he's been trying to do for years. After a brief shot of Tru running again (I think this school is in the shape of a Möbius Strip), Mr. Connor says that the only way he'll be able to write a book as good as Candace's is to take it from her and make it his own. Candace says that's not possible. Mr. Connor shoots back, "Not if no one's seen it. Not if no one knows," as he takes off his glasses. Candace looks scared, even though she could totally kick Mr. Connor's ass up one side of this school and down the other. He apologizes, and then grabs the back of Candace's neck in one hand and covers her mouth with the other.
Before we get to see how exactly Mr. Connor was going to kill Candace in such a fashion that doesn't lend itself to a fatality, Tru comes running in and turns on the lights. Mr. Connor backs off from Candace and asks Tru what she's doing there. Tru says she's there to tell Candace how much she loved her book. Then she tells Mr. Connor that the only way to take credit for Candace's book now is for him to kill them both. So he does. The end. No, actually; although Mr. Connor will brutally murder one beautiful young bombshell to get some shitty manuscript rejected by thirty publishers, he draws the line at two beautiful young bombshells. He asks Tru if she's going to tell anybody what happened. She says she won't if he resigns tomorrow and turns himself in. Oh, Jesus H. Christ, he's going to be booking the next flight to some non-extraditing country the minute he leaves the building. This show is so damned dumb. Tru says it's a shame that the school will be losing such a great teacher, even though he couldn't seem to finish a book let alone get it published. And, you know, he tried to kill somebody. Tru observes that "some things change," as she stomps off with Candace following behind her, turning their backs and ignoring an attempted murderer.
