Alex runs into Nico in the hallway and tells her that he wants to hang out tonight but she is wearing headphones and pretends that she couldn't hear what he was saying.

The nurse gives Molly some medicine and she is still in extreme pain. She squeezes the bench she is sitting on and her eyes glow yellow and she realises that she just dented the bench with her bare hands. She then starts feeling better. Molly goes home early that day and is alone. She goes into the garage and starts pulling a van. It then starts rolling towards her so she pushes it back in place.
