In Boone County, Arkansas, Mandy is reading an article to Joe , believing she's his "Uncle Daryl," about Heather's murder and how eight of the Havenport killers are still at large. Judy gets up, coughing, and staggers out. Joe greets her and says that he's helping Mandy with her homework. He kisses Judy and goes to get her some coffee, and Judy tells Mandy to go to school. Once they're alone, Joe practices his Southern accent and Judy tells him not to do Mandy's homework because it might attract attention to Joe. Well aware who he really is, Judy figures that the killers are part of his cult and wonders if he's getting itchy to start murdering again. Joe insists that it's all behind him and tells Judy that he owes her everything for her help...
