Daniel: (driving, he appears to be holding the camera resting on the passenger seat) Around six, Bree's helper came by, and they went inside for like, an hour. Then they just left. (cut to outside the car, Daniel is driving through woods, occasional glances of Lucy's car are seen) So... I've been following from a distance. This road it, it takes you up into the mountains and... (Daniel passes a large cactus) ...trying to stay really far behind them. The hell?
(The rest of this video in shot in a style which is different than anything that has been seen before, seemingly in homage to The Blair Witch Project. All of Daniel's lines are whispered, the camera is being held very unsteadily, and the imagery is mostly a montage of trees and bushes Daniel is walking past or hiding behind.)
Daniel: This is it!
(Daniel peeks through some trees at a bald man in a suit and sunglasses walking around by some parked cars.)
Daniel: I couldn't...had to park up the road, but...that's gotta be them. Who is that guy? Hope Bree knows what she's doing. This is ridiculous. Look out, what's that? Where...the hell am I?
(Daniel walks by a sign that says "Trippet Ranch")
Daniel: Oh shit.
(people are seen in the distance walking around on a hilltop with flashlights)
Daniel: They came up this way. It's just up there. They're going up to the top. I don't like this at all. I don't know what to do. I can't hear what they're saying. I can't even make out...how many of them there are.
(some figures are in robes. one of them lowers the hood of another, who is revealed to be Bree)
Daniel: Oh, crap!
(heavy breathing as Daniel apparently runs away)
(he stops and turns the camera on his own face)
Daniel: I heard somebody in the bushes, I just took off. I gotta get outta here, I gotta go.
(Daniel runs some more in the dark, we see some flashlights pointing in his direction.)
Daniel: I think they're following me. Oh, shit.
- Trippet Ranch is in California's Topanga State Park.*This is the first video in which the four-letter word "shit" is heard.
- It is notable that this video was released on October 12th, 2006, as anticipated by many bloggers and media. This date has some significance in the Crowley following and was referenced in the vlog "Bree The Cookie Monster" as three cookie ratings: 10, 12, and 06 (not 6).
- Some fans of the series hypothesized that the bald man with the sunglasses was a shoutout to the figure in the video series Immant. It was later discovered that it was a Watcher named Virgil.
