Rachel: So... these last few weeks I've been trying to take some time and (pause) clear my mind. It's been a constant struggle for me trying to separate my past from my present and it's been hard to even make any sense. That drama a few months ago with my ex, yeah not as over as I'd like it to be. It's been hard to figure out how I feel about it all. And it probably has something to do with me losing my parents; and all of the associated trust issues. I don't even know what to think about it now. I don't even remember what it's like to have a mom and a dad around. I probably blocked out all of those memories so that I wouldn't have to have the stark contrast of their absence. Say what you will, but it's effective. So, why can't I have that same haste in denial about my loser ex-boyfriend. Speaking of loser guys, I haven't really heard from Linc for a while. The last time I saw him; we got chased by some van and I ended up having to crash on his couch because he said it wasn't safe "out there." (Rachel makes a crazy sign and makes a coo coo sound.) I think he's got some kind of weird mental disorder, because the next night he kept telling me how his friend with a code name was going to pick us up. He only just tried to lead me down into a sketchy like Morlock tunnel. It really freaked me out. And this bad feeling that I've been having, all of a sudden became really overwhelming. And as soon as Linc started talking about some nonsense... I just hightailed it out of there. Whatever medication they have him on, they really need to up the dose. Okay, maybe that was a little mean. But, whatever forces he's being chased by, whether imaginary or real, I don't think I'm hanging out with him again. And I should learn to trust my instincts more especially when they screaming at me "He's a paranoid schizophrenic! RUN!" And apparently it was safer out there, becuase I made it all the way back home... all the way back home to my grandfather's place in east Texas. Unfortunately, I didn't have decent internet access and my cellphone reception was horrible. So, you gotta make the best of it and just stay disconnected for a couple weeks. Truth be told, it was actually kind of nice. Anyway, I've only been home for a few hours and I'm pretty sleepy. I haven't even unpacked yet.
Oh, and Dr. Arscott, thank you for the extension on these video blogs. I'll let you know soon what my uh plans are.

- It appears that Rachel has had recent contact with her ex-boyfriend, Jordan.
- Many of aspects of this video seem to tie Rachel's story with that of Clara Stokes's for the first time. For instance, her grandfather, who she grew up with, lives in East Texas, as does Clara. Rachel also mentions Dr. Arscott as her film teacher, just as Clara named him as her thesis advisor. Also, the tags in this video say "SFASU," which is the same school that both Clara and Adam Lamar attend.
- Between 'like...Morlock' there can be seen a flash of something white.
- "Morlocks may refer to a fictional species created by H. G. Wells or a group of mutants associated with X-Men.
