The group attempts to induct Hoyt, revealing their identities and their hatred of supernaturals. Hoyt is sympathetic because of his failed relationship with Jessica Hamby. He accompanies them on their next mission. They return to the hospital to make another attempt on Luna's live. Joe Bob is apprehended when he tries to attack Luna Garza at the hospital. ("In the Beginning")

Andy Bellefleur and Jason Stackhouse attempt to get more information from Joe Bob but he will not talk. His defiance earns him a beating. Andy later realizes that Bud Dearborne is the common thread amongst the Obamas they have identified.
