Reverend Matt Jamison has been duplicating everyday as if it were the one Mary awoke on, to no avail. Frustrated, he takes Mary to Austin, TX to get an MRI, only to discover that she is pregnant. While on their way back to Jarden, they come upon a man, and his young son, with car trouble. When Matt stops to assist, the stranger assaults him and steals both of their wristbands, allowing access to the exclusive town. Mary seemingly awakens for an instant, and proclaims that if she doesn't get back to Jarden, the baby will die. After being refused entry back to Jarden, John Murphy agrees to sponsor them on one condition: Matt must admit that Mary's pregnancy is not miraculous in nature. He does, but John changes his mind when Matt questions why he has such anger towards the town. Later, Nora and Kevin attempt to sneak them in, by way of their car's trunk. While driving they come upon the dead body of wristband thief, with the son quivering near by. After sending Mary ahead with Kevin and Nora, Matt takes the boy to John. He tells John to take care of him; and that he will not enter Jarden again until he can prove his truth. Matt heads into the encampment, and displays an act of endearment.
