They go to check on the dead skitter, but it gets up and attacks them again. But this time Ben stabs it to death; he seems pleased with the kill. At the airport hanger, Tom comes in to check on Matt. Matt is sleeping with a gun and Hal assures Tom that it is not loaded. Anne tells Tom that the hanger is a perfect brooding ground for some sort of a disease. He tells her that he is trying to convince Weaver to move out of this place soon. It appears that Anne is keeping a track of the days.
