Kelly is found alone, shot in the head at the amusement park. Sabrina, Jill and Bosley eventually learn that Kelly was at the park with her "date," an autistic boy named Skip to whom she has been acting as a big sister. Skip was found abandoned when he was six years old, and now resides at Pacific Sanitarium, which is seen as a last resort for children like Skip.
