CLOE is lost in the storm as night comes in…
PATSY and PAUL are very upset for CLOE. They’re afraid the LOCUSTS will get her – with good reason.
TRUDY complains that the BABY will not settle unless BRAY is around… He agrees to stay – but sleeps in a chair by the BABY’s basket. Not what TRUDY had in mind!

CLOE wakes to a new day – and stumbles straight into the path of two drunken LOCOS.
