Dr. Enid Perle (Rebecca Dayan), the episode’s Isabella Rossellini clone, claims to have created a unique face augmentation and skin rejuvenation process that she’s mastered after extensive research and travel, and she claims to be the secret of Cassie’s good looks. Virginia is initially told by Dr. Perle that she isn’t a good fit for what she does, but that simply makes her desire it more, which was probably the goal. Virginia moves some money around and goes for it in defiance of the better advice of her business manager and stepdaughter. The healing process is a pain once the treatment is finished. Her hands are also tightly wrapped. She is frantic for painkillers, which Fay stuffs into her mouth. Angered, she abandons Virginia to handle it.

Perle decides that Fay is a bad influence and a hindrance to healing, so she invites Virginia to a healing retreat that is complimentary and open to all of her patients.

Virginia is also there to save her mom. Frequently reminding Fay that she is not her biological mother, Virginia turns on her.  The big gathering of attendees is revealed to be members of a cult who offer a sacrifice to Étain for their good health and beauty as Virginia’s bandages are taken off.

It is revealed that she is that year’s sacrifice to Étan, the shining one who assumes the forms of the sun and the butterfly, at Dr. Perle’s retreat in the Santa Monica Mountains where she spends the remainder of her recuperation. It turns out that Virginia’s stepdaughter’s birth mother was a member of this strange tribe when she is speared to death as a sacrifice to Etan. She apparently consumes Virginia’s swine blood at Perle’s encouragement, posing as a much hotter version of herself. She joins their ranks and, in the final moments, is seen pursuing her dream of attending law school. She has the same shopping center butterfly tattoo as the other stabby, attractive members of their group.
