Desiree (Leslie Bibb): And then, after you offed, I just cried and cried. And I had to leave town because everything reminded me of you. Trust me. I never knew how much I hurt you until you were gone. Oh thank God. Thank God I can finally ask you to forgive me... King, King? He was a real friend. He got me out of town, and I started to get more and more into his teachings, and I just stopped crying. So then King was supposed to separate his body from his soul so he could discover the other, better world and come back and show everyone the way. 'Cause you know he believes that we’re all trapped in the world of the living. But … something went terribly wrong, and his soul never made it back. So at the hospital, when they confirmed his death… I heard his soul calling me, and I just knew--I knew I had to be with him, so--I took the elevator to the hospital roof... and flew. Oh, god, time flies with you, Zia. Let's go. King's about to begin. And this time I know...he's gonna make it. Come on, I have to help King prepare.
