The house matches the description of Mary's best friend Julie who was charged with watching the boys for the night. John and Missouri arrive at the house too to save Julie but the boys are okay. At that moment, John realizes they won't be safe with anyone but him and the boys will have to learn how to survive, hunt and kill.
