A park with waterfall
Brad and Beth are walking along and enjoying each other's company. Brad is trying to follow Wayne's advice and not come on too strong which is confusing Beth a bit.

LOU: Well they're not getting my child!
Apparently the cult was started by a failed priest who calls himself Barrabas. They'll have to handle it very carefully.
