While listening to the radio with Dan one night, Randy hears Mrs. Vanbruuker-Brown ask that all Reserve officers and National Guard officers not in contact with their commanders or headquarters to take action to preserve public safety in the Contaminated Zones. Randy was in the Reserve, so this includes him—he now has been given authority he did not have before. He tries to tell Helen this while she gives him a haircut, but she is more concerned with his uncanny resemblance to Mark; she becomes delusional and insists that he is Mark, trying to kiss him, stuck in a frenzy of emotion.
