The suspect who placed his bloody hand on the wall, looked back at the officier and proclaims he is innocent. The officier orders the wall to be cleaned, but it can't. He tells them to paint it over, and the painter tries. The painter tells the officier that it just keeps bleeding through the paint, but somehow he gets it done.

    • (After "Summer Camp") Jonathon Frakes: How could Anthony have been asleep in his bunk and outside in the woods at the same time? And if he was in his bunk the whole time, then who saved Marty and Darren from the wolf? Did Marty and Darren, in their terror, only imagine Anthony was there? But, what about the detail of the chocolate chip cookies, could they have imagined that too? Is this a story of a person being in two places at once… or is it just another tale when we tell around the fire at summer camp? (Takes a bite out of one of the cookies)

    • (Before "Summer Camp") Jonathon Frakes: For most of us, summer camp invokes sweet thoughts of fresh air, fun in the sun and mischief after dark. But for some children, summer camp recalls more bitter feelings, memories of isolation, homesickness and the taunts of their peers. All Anthony Shaw wanted to do was have a happy, carefree summer away… everyone knew he was different, they were about to find out he was special.

    • (After "The Prescription") Jonathon Frakes: Who was watching over Spencewick Pharmacy that day? Was that fated prescription simply misplaced? If so, how did it end up back on the board? Did Everett's grandson find it and put it back himself, to embarrassed to tell his grandfather what really happened? But then, how did it disappear in the first place? Maybe there was some angelic spirit watching over the pharmacy? Does this strange story of a prescription go down easy… or do you find it hard to swallow?

    • (Before "The Prescription") Jonathon Frakes: For those of us who grew up in another generation, the corner drug store was a magical place. You gave the man behind the counter an illegible note from your doctor and he would fill tiny bottles with pills and potions that had the power to make you feel better. And perhaps most magical of all, the man knew you by name. Everett Spencer was a throwback to that earlier time, when the pharmacy profession was a personal one. But now the modern era is starting to close in on him, like… like a virus. And he has no prescription to fight it off…

    • (After "The Getaway") Jonathon Frakes: (Holding the newspaper shown at end of the segment) Let's look at the paper again, another accident the same day involving six school children. Was the woman that Mrs. James encountered that day only the spirit of Diane Lerner? Did she truly become one of the spirits of the woods? Did she join the ghosts of the children who died in the bus tragedy? Or was our witness, Mrs. James, a bit overexcited? Maybe she imagined that Diane disappeared. Could it be that Diane was disappointed with her paradise and slipped out without telling Mrs. James? But what then are we to make of the newspaper article? Is the truth easy to spot here… or is it difficult to tell the forests from the trees?
