(The doors of Jonas's house are seen and Jonas turns the camera to himself in front of the doors)
Jonas: (Whistles) Home sweet home. I have come back to reclaim my identity. (Laughs) Whatever that's supposed to mean. But you know what? I do think it's a logical step. Come back to where it all began. My parents' house. My house. My... kingdom. My castle. My... house. My house.
(Jonas pushes the door open and the scene cuts to him walking through the house.)
Jonas: I gotta say it's a little weird walking through here again. It's just... all the memories are just... just a lot of memories. You know? This is the place where I grew up. Went through a lot here. Lived here on my own. (Laughs) (Walks into a dark room) Oh. The library. This is where I first talked to Bree. (Voice over) Look familiar? Huh?
(Cut to Jonas sitting in the library chair in front of the bookcase)
Jonas: (With his boxing gloves) (Punches while making sound effects) (Laughs) My Name Is Jonas. Remember that hot little number? (Chuckles) God. Yeah, I don't know. I guess I'm just... tryna get the old feel back. Get the old juices flowing. (Puts gloves on the floor) Silly, I know, but... (sighs) I don't know. It's just... (looks around) it's weird. Everything is in the same place as it was. Every book is lined up in the exact same order. Every trophy and trinket is exactly where it belongs. I don't know. Half of me expected the place to be ransacked. Everything gone. I mean, call me crazy, but everywhere I've lived for the last year and a half gets ransacked so I just figured, why not? Right? (Laughs) Man, look at this stuff! (Gets up and walks over to the bookcase) An old baseball. (Fades into a shot of Jonas picking up a clock) My dad's old clock. Thing doesn't even work anymore. I always meant to fix it but I- (drops a piece of the clock) Whoops. (Bends down and picks it up) I always meant to fix it, I just... never really had the time. (Sits back down in the chair) You know? (Examines the piece he dropped) Time is always just so... (INAUDIBLE). Now that's weird. (Holds piece up) Looks like a piece of a book was torn out and pasted on here. It says, Reva- Revelation. (Holds piece up to camera) Hmm... (covers camera)
(Cut to a sequence of clips sped up of Jonas looking through various books in his library. He comes to a black book and the clip goes back to normal speed. He puts his arms down, chuckles, and takes a seat again.)
Jonas: (Holds book up to the camera) I finally found it! It's the Bible! You know, I don't know why it took me so long to figure that out, right? Revelation, the Bible. But check this out. (Holds up the open book to where a piece has been cut out) Look. (Inserts the piece from the clock in, which is a perfect fit) Huh. Perfect. And look, I haven't read this yet because I wanted to wait for you guys but the passage is marked, "Revelation 7:11" so... (sniffs) here we go. (Reading the passage from the Bible) "And all the angels stood about the throne and about the... elders and the four beasts and fell before the throne on their faces and worshiped God." Oh look at this, I didn't even notice this. There's something... there's something written in the margins here. (Holds book up to camera) You see that? It says, "Elders will fall when the sun rises." (Pondering) Elders will fall when the sun rises... what does that mean?
(Fade to a shot of Jonas, sped up, sitting with his feet up holding the book and thinking. He slams the book on the table and starts spinning in the chair. He gets up and starts spinning the chair before walking out of the room. A shot of the chair remains still for a few seconds before we see Jonas enter the room again with a picture. Jonas takes a seat and holds up a picture of a rising sun.)
Jonas: This was hanging in my parents' room right above their bed. And that is the sun rising.
(Jonas turns the picture around and a book is taped to the back with a Resistance symbol drawn on the frame. Cut to Jonas holding a little red book.)
Jonas: It turns out this was my dad's journal. I've skimmed through a lot of it and it recounts part of the time he was with the Resistance. The last entry is dated a week before he disappeared and uh... this is what it says. "For it is within my son. Hope resides. When we are gone, he will be the last of the resistance. As long as The Order cannot locate the key, he will be safe for all time." (Chuckles) Wow. Um... I'm gonna need to read all of this and- and digest it... and find this key because if The Order wants it so badly then maybe it'll give us some leverage for- for the eclipse. Uh... I'll be in contact soon. (Covers camera)
- This is the first time Jonas's house has been seen since Home Sweet Home?, which was released on October 4, 2007.
- Jonas comments that he is surprised that his house has not been ransacked by The Order. Ironically, when Jonas last visited his house in October, someone had indeed broken into the house and rummaged through various parts of the house, including the library.
- A clearer translation of the Bible verse that Jonas reads is "All the angels stood around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,"(Revelation 7:11,Holman Christian Standard Bible Translation)
