Near a Catholic shrine in New Mexico, a teenage girl sees an alien die and disintegrate after he's bitten by a snake. Before he dies, he hands her a crystal, which she assumes both the alien and the crystal are signs from her god. Knowing the crystal's actually a part of an alien apparatus, David tries to buy it from her, but she's unwilling, and her uncle wants more money. David tries to explain that the aliens will kill to get it back.
