Henry's father's casket arrives at the church before it's moved to the new plot, and the Father tells Henry that something odd is happening; the casket is dripping what is supposed to be Henry's father's cooked body (because the casket serves as an oven for the body in rare cases), but this shouldn't be happening because his father died a long time ago. Wildfires are raging near Castle Rock. Shawshank releases the Kid and Henry sets him up in the room above Molly's office. The Kid wanders into a family's dinner/birthday celebration and seemingly causes a violent end. Jackie finds the Kid and hangs out with him. Alan is honored at a bridge-naming ceremony, during which Ruth is spooked by a dog and jumps off the bridge and into the water. Alan and Henry speak with her at the hospital. Alan discovers the Kid in the forest. Alan states that the Kid hasn't aged a day since 1991 and the Kid offers to help Ruth.
