(Daniel is sitting at his desk, looking tired; he repeatedly rubs his eyes throughout the video.)
Daniel: I have been on the computer for way too long. I didn't sleep last night, I was just...up. Some things Bree said in her last video got me thinking and...I been doing research. First up, Denderah. So, it turns out the Temple she's talking about is a temple to Hathor. Hathor was a Goddess of all women, no matter their station in life. She was a goddess of fertility and she was associated with the flooding of the Nile. She...was a goddess of joy, motherhood, love... Ugh, this is getting me nowhere.

Daniel: So, someone in the forum reminded me about the Aleister Crowley photo...in Bree's room. I Googled "Aleister Crowley" and "Hathor" together. Crowley translated Hathor to mean "mother of light". He considered her to be both sun and moon goddess and honored her so much that he named one of his Tarot cards after her. This gets really weird. To Crowley, Hathor represented the sun and the passage from east to west through the sky. It goes on to describe a ritual that he designed to honor her. A person was to walk in a straight line, stopping to face the east at one end, and then walk back the way they had come and stop to face the west. I dunno, maybe I'm reading too much into this. You guys tell me, I've been up for like, 14 hours straight.

Daniel: So...I just came across this article...1943...from a small town in Arizona. It's about a girl that had been abducted. And the weird thing is it mentions Aleister Crowley. He uh... He had this house in town, and it was right around that time when the disappearance happened. But nothing ever came of it, because...he went back to England before they could even investigate. Bree, I don't know, I just... Look, I know you don't trust me at all right now, but... I need more time! This Ceremony, it's coming up too soon.
- Many viewers have pointed out that "14 hours straight" is not a large amount of time for a person to be awake. It may be that Daniel has been awake for 14 hours longer than he usually is, or perhaps he meant that he'd been researching on his computer for 14 hours straight. Or maybe he just said the first thing that came to mind ("I've got like ten hours of homework") considering that he said "like 14 hours."
- The YouTube version of this video ends with a logo: "Lonelygirl15: Explore the Breeniverse". This was the first time the Creators used the term Breeniverse, which was coined by fans in August 2006. The logo was used at the end of YouTube videos until What Makes Us Sad?. No official explanation was ever given for why the logo was dropped, though some YouTubers speculated that it violated YouTube's Terms of Service agreement or copyright agreements.
