Meanwhile, Veronica, driving off, says in voiceover she's found the three John Smith's in San Diego, and is going to photograph them. She calls Justin at the video store, and asks him if he has any photos that might help; he says he'll check. Julia comes in, asking about ''BodyHeat'', which Justin says he'd have to special order.

The next day, Veronica vows to drive to Arizona after school to find her mother. She sees Duncan and asks if he's all right, but he brushes her off, having gone back on his medication. Keith "accidentally" shows up at the place Rebecca gets coffee at, and they greet each other. At the video store, Justin's co-worker tells him ''BodyHeat'' has come in, and after some hesitation, Justin calls Julia to tell her.

Justin is understandably freaked out as Julia tearfully tries to tell him what happened, and that while she understands why his mother would want to pretend he/she was really dead, she drove to the video store just to see Justin to know he was all right. Justin angrily calls her a "circus freak", and leaves, and Veronica stammers out an apology. On their way back, Veronica tells Justin that Julia drove 90 miles just to see Justin for a few minutes, and that should count for something.
