We see Charmaine researching plastic surgeons.Max goes to Dr. Ocean's office unannounced to talk about the new alter he has recently spotted. He describes the alter as a "weird poncho goblin" that was "like an animal." Dr. Ocean says many people with DID have child-like alters and this new one may be the result of Tara looking for answers about her youth.

She tells Max Tripp's last name is Johanssen.Buck cleans his gun as the two talk about Marshall.
