After Ben and Grace find Cal inside the cabin, a man appears at the door. Banging his body up against it, he breaks through. Ben rushes to protect his son. Cal says, “It’s him. Do not hurt him.” But before Ben could even react the man falls to the ground, and is out cold.

They enter through the door.
BEN: Are you okay? You’re alone? Yeah. Is there anyone else here? Okay.
GRACE: Sweetie, how how did you get here?
BEN: I took a bus to Tannersville, got a ride with Max from the gas station, then I walked up from the road.
GRACE: I don’t understand. Why? Why did you do this?
CAL: This is where I’m supposed to be.
BEN: It’s okay. It’s okay.
CAL: I can’t leave, he’s coming.
CAL: He’s almost here.
GRACE: Who is? Who’s almost here? What are you talking about?
Cal nods his head.
An unidentified man
Ben hears footsteps. Someone is approaching the cabin.
BEN: To the back room.
A shadow appears at the door. Someone is pounding on the door.
CAL: Dad! No, Dad, wait!
CAL: It’s him! It’s him! Don’t hurt him!
Ben hesitates and does not strike him, and the man falls to the ground.
GRACE: He’s freezing cold. We got to get these wet clothes off and get a fire going.
CAL: I have a sleeping bag in my backpack.
The man sits up and is conscious.
BEN: You brought all this from home?
CAL: There’s bandages, too.
GRACE: You somehow knew he would need all of this?
CAL: I knew I had to help.
BEN: Well, you did. You saved his life. Any idea who he is?
Cal shrugs his shoulders.
GRACE: Oh, honey, look at you. You’re half-asleep already. Come on. Come lay down, sweetie.
BEN: All right, hang in there.
