  • Cletus Underwood, a friend of Summer, suggests that Ob visit a spiritualist-- which he found a paper advertising her-- to see if they can get her to help in finding May.
  • Resolution
  • " 'What is the true mission of spirit messages? To bring us consolation in the sorrows of life...."'

  • I'm afraid she's passed on.

  • Summer and Cletus help put Ob's whirligigs in May's garden and read a line from the brochure(the spiritualist's nephew gave them) to put May in the past and finally move on. (The shapes on the ground are whirligigs)
