Meanwhile, pill-popping insomniac Ed discovers his wife's diary, which reveals she was having an affair with a neighbor. Then he keeps having to deal with strange household plumbing problems. Ed becomes increasinly disoriented, so is he hallucinating the whole thing or has something terrible really happened?
