Elsewhere in Patience, Nurse Ellen Cho is chatting on the phone while Max and Sahar sit at a table. As she wanders about, Sahar opens up a map, telling Max she's marked all the military installations in the area where they could be holding the alien ball. \"I circled the underground ones nobody knows about,\" she tells him. She overhears Ellen telling someone on the phone that Ben is holding the party to convince Harry to become town doctor again. \"Town doctor\" she wonders, asking Max what happened to Dr. Ethan. Max tells her that he left town the night the men in black were there. She asks if his brain in his butt, that the men in black took Dr. Ethan and will be back as soon as they figure out that he's human. She tells Max that they have to go to the party and tell Asta. Max asks how they can do this, given their babysitter. Sahar tells him they'll get her to fall asleep, using convoys to nature videos.
Back at the party, Dan puts some steaks on the barbecue outside when he notices some signs of alien activity. Asta searches around for Harry, only to knock on the bathroom door and discover Kate is inside. She finds Harry laying down jelly beans and asks if he's checked on the egg because if it's hatched they have to get everyone out. He tells her the party can't end with pie coming and not to worry, that the egg will not hatch. She tells him he can't just hide in the bedroom, that people will be suspicious. \"I will talk to Dan because he has food,\" he tells Asta, going up to Dan, putting some money in his pocket and taking food. In the bathroom, Kate and D'Arcy see the results of the test. Kate is, indeed, pregnant. \"Congratulations,\" D'Arcy tells her, asking if she's going to tell Ben the good news. \"Not until I'm convinced it's good news,\" she replies. D'Arcy tells her that she has it and Kate nods.
The party continues, with Deputy Liv telling Asta about recent UFO sightings in Patience and how she saw a UFO during their class camping trip when they were kids. She asks Asta if she doesn't want to believe that they're not alone, that there's something bigger out there. \"Sure,\" Asta agrees, \"but not in Patience,\" saying they just got a pizza place. Deputy Liv agrees she's probably right. Just then, Jay arrives. Asta tells Deputy Liv that she get nervous when Jay's around, that she's been trying to give her space. \"She's driving now,\" she tells Deputy Liv and Liv replies that she's their best customer, that she's given her six tickets. Asta apologizes, but Liv tells her to breathe. Jay comes over to Asta. She tells her that her birthday is coming up, \"which you know,\" she points out. \"I was there,\" agrees Asta. Jay asks her if she might want to do something together on her birthday, just the two of them, perhaps lunch. Asta is surprised but delighted, agreeing that she would love it. They agree to check out a new Mexican restaurant, Jay saying that she's going to eat as much as she can before Mayor Hawthorne kicks her out. Asta heads into the bathroom and smiles to herself. D'Arcy asks her if she's okay and she says she's good. She opens the toilet and is shocked. Inside the alien baby, who jumps out, up onto the wall and through the open window.
At the party, Sheriff Mike regales the group with a funny story about his partner Jesse from D.C., finally opening up about his past. Dan tells him it's good to see him laughing as Asta comes over asks to talk to him. She explains that the alien baby hatched and is loose. She tells him to not let anyone outside, that Harry is worried. \"He doesn't look worried,\" Dan points out, as Harry sits taking a gift of a candle from D'Arcy. Ben asks if it isn't the one he gave her last Christmas and she says she'd have had time to shop if someone had invited her. Asta takes Harry aside and they discuss the alien baby. Max and Sahar come up to the window and try to get Asta's attention. Unable to, Sahar decides they need another plan. They walk away from the window and spot a raccoon, admiring its cuteness until the alien baby pops up and devours it. It hisses at them and they scream and run away. Sahar tells Max that Harry is breeding alien babies. Back inside, Asta asks Harry just how they're supposed to keep everyone inside, if the \"humalien\" ran away. He tells her he doesn't know what it will do, given that it's a hybrid. He says that the alien part will want to come back because it knows there's food, namely the eggsac it was born in... and then all of them. He tells her he'll go down and look for it. She asks if he has bullets for all the guns that are hanging up around the place. He tells her they're already loaded, that the real him was \"rednecky.\"
Upstairs, the alien baby slithers around in the punch. Mike goes and gets some punch, saying it's spicier than he remembers. John decides to get some too. Kate goes up to D'Arcy, saying that New York is out of the picture because Ben just got a call from someone that wants to put a resort in Patience and says he's going to be mayor for decades. D'Arcy asks what she's talking about and she says that he took pictures of the Grady land to sell them. \"What\" wonders D'Arcy, saying that Ben had said he was using the pictures for the town website. Ben approaches Jay, asking what she's still doing at the party. She claims to just be eating. He goes over to Kate and D'Arcy, asking what they're talking about. Kate lays into him about the resort and the pictures of the Grady party. D'Arcy says he lied to her about using the pictures for the town website, but he says he did plan on using them for the website also, so it's not a lie. He asks if he should order more food, but D'Arcy won't drop the point, saying that he totally lied to her, that they spent the whole day together rock climbing so he could destroy the town. Kate is surprised that this is the first she's hearing about any of this. She asks if the \"nothing\" he told her about was rock-climbing with D'Arcy.
Upstairs, Liv tells John that she thinks it's a really weird party. She asks if she's a bad person for liking seeing other couples fight. \"You're a horrible person,\" John tells her and they chuckle. The alien baby crawls around them and chitters and Liv has a brief vision in her head of Harry as an alien. She looks flustered and John asks what's wrong. She tells him that something happened to her, that there is alien activity in Patience. He asks what she's going to do and she tells him that she's calling the alien tracker. Asta comes in, saying that the raccoon definitely knocked out the power and they need to stay put until they can figure it out. \"Better tell D'Arcy,\" comments Jay. \"She just left.\" Asta sighs, grabbing the flashlight, and goes to find D'Arcy, about to get into her car. \"Nice rifle,\" comments D'Arcy and Asta tells her there's a rabid raccoon on the loose. D'Arcy says that maybe it'll bit her and not to shoot her if she starts foaming at the mouth. Asta tells her not to listen to Kate, that what she says isn't true. \"It is, though,\" says D'Arcy, asking if she knows what her very first thought was when meeting Elliot. \"Nice ass\" asks Asta and D'Arcy agrees it's true. She says her second thought was \"How long until I mess this up\" She asks what's wrong with her. Asta tells her to unmess it, to call him. \"Yeah, right\" says D'Arcy, but Asta tells her to call him now. D'Arcy refuses, so Asta says she will, but D'Arcy fights with her for the phone, finally agreeing to text him. She asks what she's even supposed to say. \"How about 'hi'\" asks Asta. D'Arcy sends it, saying now she has to be nauseous for two weeks while she waits for a reply. She gets a text back, \"Hi.\" \"It works,\" agrees D'Arcy. Asta asks if she's going to write back. \"In a couple days,\" agrees D'Arcy. 59ce067264
