In his classroom, Sherman looks around for something under the lab tables. Probably his résumé. Lou is harassing him about the secret of Ruby's twin sister, but admits he's partially just miffed that she didn't tell him the truth herself. Lou spots a rat on the floor and darts over in a split-second, swooping it up off the floor. Sherman is impressed with the technique, and regards Lou as though he's imagining the cop naked and then covered in fur. Lou pets the rat while revealing to Sherman that he found the grave and thinks it's mighty suspicious that all those teenagers died. Sherman thoughtfully attributes it to inbreeding, which is extremely classy of him. The weird thing is, incest and shallow gene pools don't seem to faze Lou in the slightest; in fact, he looks interested, like he's about to go home and call his sister. Sherman also explains that a local religious sect, The Church of Unified Science Triumphant, forbids the use of medicine or anything unnatural because they believe it will damn their souls. He cites the Cates family as believers, then continues looking for his escaped animal. Lou holds out the rat. "I've got him right here," he says. Sherman shrugs. "Oh, that's not my rat," he says casually. Lou looks aghast. And here's where it gets creepy -- I actually laughed. How wrong is that?
Donner leads Sophia into the hospital and shows her Sarah's grotesque form. Sarah is wailing. "Is this what you've been waiting for? Is it?" growls Donner. Sophia holds her friend's gooey hand. She's stuck in some kind of larval stage. Vivian, meanwhile, calls Cates and insists it's time to whack the bitch. She then kicks Donner and his daughter out of Sarah's room so her parents can say goodbye; as they leave, the father is arriving and gives Sophia one of those stony, creepy "why her and not you" looks. It would be menacing, except we've never seen him before and he looks totally stoned. Sophia wails that they're going to kill her friend, and she can't understand why her father doesn't stop the madness. He admits it's beyond his jurisdiction and says he made a mistake showing her the quivering lump of crap that her friend became. Sophia looks pouty. She had not reckoned on becoming human Jell-O.
Bored of the Ruby Cates Web site, Lou stares at his computer screen but nibbles on his finger. The phone rings, and he grabs it in case it's a booty call. But Sophia just wants him to come help her out; he speeds away on his toy bike. At the hospital, Sarah's mother kisses her jelly daughter goodbye and apologizes for trying to embalm her with Cool Whip. The mom then convulses a bit before collecting her paycheck and getting the hell off this cursed set. "There's no shame," Cates says, looking deeply, deeply shamed. "It's who we are."
