Mark shows Elly a photo of the snake they captured, but Elly says it had different markings. Charlie arrives and looks at the photos. Mark doesnt think two snakes would have made their way here, so it looks likely that someone let them loose. Charlie suggests Clive did it, but Mark tells Charlie to leave it to them. Charlie says hes off to do his homework, but sneaks out the front door while Mark isnt looking.
Paige tells Jack off for getting his friends to go to her house and tell her how to behave.
PAIGE: How does me training have anything to do with you?
JACK: You know I care about what happens to you.

Meanwhile Lauren tells Terese that she told Amber to talk to her about it. Terese tells her she was busy. She decides to go home to Piper, seeing Gary with Paul and shares a scathing look.
