When she and Larry shake hands, the entities contained within each of them surge. Larry realizes Valentina has also merged with a negative spirit.

Rita discovers the play she's signed up for is one written about the Cloverton experience of the town being sucked into the ground.

Valentina debriefs her mission with Larry and explains that she spent five years after her encounter with the negative entity living in the airlock, learning how to contain the radiation so she wouldn't kill everyone around her.

Valentina explains that Zip and Specs died a long time ago and are inhabited by some space spores.

Dorothy tells Cliff that she thinks she's a bad person because she keeps making mistakes. She intends on staying on this desolate planet to keep everyone else safe. She tells Cliff that the grave is for Nanny and that he was the last part of her mother she had left. Cliff consoles her and she returns to the ship with him.

Larry buries the degrading Zip and Specs. He and Valentina discuss plans. She will return to Russia to sever ties to Earth. He plans to return to his family to mend their bonds.

The funeral procession approaches the well and Jane makes a last appeal for them to give Baby Doll and Flaming Katy time to heal. Miranda suddenly emerges from the well and explains that she'd been reborn as the broken alters will be. The alters throw the broken ones down the well and a deep rumble is felt as their stations collapse. In real life, Jane cries.

Miranda asks Jane to step aside and let her be primary again, promising to show them all what Kay truly wants.

In the spaceship, Dorothy is asleep and Cliff tells Niles that he's willing to be her family if Niles dies. Niles thanks him but then blows him out the airlock.
