Jo has succeeded in making contact with Elle as she is presently inhabiting the body of Katie, a young girl that is also comatose. Due to the confusion the young girl's body is sedated while the others try to sort out the confusion. As the police arrive instead of restraining Jo, they desire to talk to Katie's parents, as they suspect them of some foul play in their daughter's predicament. Jo waits around the hospital for Katie to wake up and has some secrets revealed to her in the meantime. At one point she returns to Katie and finds Dane's manipulative father standing over her, not having done anything yet eerily watching her. Jo attacks him and puts him in an arm lock before he is led away. Once Katie wakes up she confirms that Elle is still possessing her, and she seems to be afraid of a hooded individual in the hallway. She demands that Jo take her to the scene of the crime so that she can learn what has occurred. Jo agrees and smuggles her out into a waiting taxi. As they start to drive off Katie starts to go into shock as both she and Elle develop severe nosebleeds.
