Randy tells Joy, Darnell and Catalina they have to find the young faith healer by the name God's Little Finger who helped Earl and Joy before. Joy and Catalina are believers, even though a faith healer once cured Catalina's grandma of restless legs syndrome right before she died of cancer, so three of them includuing Darnell head off to find the healer whose real name is Gerald O'Dell, only to discover the young boy has lost his faith and is now wearing gloves so he doesn't touch anybody by accident.

But when Joy after explaining her own bad deeds and her 'good' personality without use of a list or anything else to make up for that, mouths off, even calling him "God's Middle Finger", the boy shuts down again.
