Vronsky, the pyromaniac nutcase, begins to bond with Mie. His intentions are uncertain, but it’s clear that he’s hoping to get his hands on a set of matches, and Mie could have them smuggled in.
Wolkers confronts Mie with the irrefutable evidence proving that she must have known Thomas Spectre pretty well. Mie denies the allegations and tries to create some order in her newly acquired memories. Thomas definitely tried to get in touch with her, and tension had grown between her and Benoit since Mie’s psychosis had increased over several disquieting occurrences in the forest house. This had led husband Benoit to begin carefully checking on her daily moves.
In the present, inspector Wolkers takes Mie to the forest, thinking familiar surroundings will incite potential information about his case.
