Will: Hey Crystal, it's Will. We met earlier this week on Monday at your apartment. Well, our apartment. We really didn't get a chance to chat, so I found out you were online. I checked with the landlord to see if you had an email address, and then I Googled it. And then I found your Facebook account which linked to your video blogs. Not that I'm a- not that I'm a stalker or anything. Anyway, I really don't know a whole lot about you, but you seem really nice. At least nicer than the last guys that had that room. They were kind of arrested on possession with intent to sell. I'm sure the drug squad cleared out all the harmful chemicals. They'd have to; otherwise, it wouldn't pass inspection for you to move in, right? I'm not that good on camera, so maybe I should do us both a favor and pull a Morgan Freeman.
(Scenes from the city's various attractions are shown.)
Anyway, you've moved into the Cherry Grove Apartments, which I would describe as not quite the bad side of town, but not necessarily the good side, either. The neighborhood has plenty of attractions to spend your time at, including a coffee shop, which sells extremely overpriced decaf, a library, which has had more than one run-in with arsons in the past year, a grocery store where the store clerks are actually nice enough to offer to carry your items to the car... if you're old enough, and, of course, the local park where you can experience everything from playgrounds to play courts until your heart is content.
I noticed on your Facebook that you have a hobby of sketching trees, so you might actually enjoy the park bench the most.
(Cut back to Will driving.)
I'm not much of an artist, but I work with quite a few of them. You'd like my office, actually. We should talk about it sometime. (Parks the car.) Speaking of which, if you want to chat sometime, you know where you can find me.
(Cut to Will getting out of the car.)
Alright, just throwing it out there. Hope you enjoy the new place.
(Cut to an exterior shot of the Cherry Grove Apartments. A siren can be heard in the background. Cut to Will approaching the main staircase, which is being guarded by a police officer.)
Will: Sir? Excuse me? Uh, what's going on here?
Police Officer: Hey, hey, look, I need you to step back, alright? This is a crime scene.
Will: Of course. I just want to know what's going on. (Mumbles.)
Police Officer: Hey, look, you're going to have to turn the camera off, alright?
Will: Alright. Thank you.
(Will follows the police officer upstairs and turns the camera off.)
- Around the time this video was uploaded, Will's Twitter and Facebook accounts went live. His profile information revealed that he is the "top codemonkey" at Shentek, a company whose name has appeared in video tags.
- One of Will's facebook photos is a graphic containing the phrase "I try to remember...". This could possibly be a connection to the first teaser trailer when Mason says he doesn't remember who he is.
- Later that day, Will logged onto facebook and engaged in the following conversations:
<Lifegospel> Hey Will <Lifegospel> You don't mind if I ask you a few questions, do you? <Lifegospel> I need to do a report on artists <WillfulAction> hey <WillfulAction> Heh...I'm not much of an artist, but shoot. <Lifegospel> So I hear you work for a company called Shentek. What exactly do they do? <WillfulAction> Computer Programming mostly <Lifegospel> Well... This might be a little off topic, but my colleague saw your video today, he wants to know what happened to get the police involved <WillfulAction> Dude, I have no idea... <WillfulAction> one minute I'm pulling into the parking lot, and the next the police are all over Crystal's place. <WillfulAction> she got in the police car with one of them and they took off. her room was blocked off and everything...they wouldn't let me film. <WillfulAction> I hope she's okay <Lifegospel> Did you see anything strange about Crystal? There has to be some reason <Lifegospel> But I'm getting off topic <Lifegospel> You say you're not an artist, but do you have any hobbies? <WillfulAction> Football and adventue :P <WillfulAction> adventure* <Lifegospel> Adventure? That sounds fun! <WillfulAction> yup...speaking of which...I need to tackle one tomorrow morning...so I should call it a night <Lifegospel> Alright, Thanks for your time

How can you NOT care about football?? <Lucca7> Tell you the truth, I'm not much of a sports person, it's amazing that I care about Baseball at all <Lucca7> Dude, I'm worried about your apartment building <WillfulAction> me too...I think I should move <Lucca7> That might be a good idea <Lucca7> But what about that one girl, Crystal? She should probably move too... that place doesn't seem safe <WillfulAction> I hope she's okay...I pulled into the parking lot and cops were everywhere. I saw her get into the car with one of them, and they sped off. Her place was completely blocked off. They wouldn't tell me anything. <Lucca7> Sorry dude, you don't even know me, but I'm talking to you about this stuff, XD I just worry <Lucca7> Oh no...

I hope she's okay They wouldn't tell me anything, tho <Eleven> Are you sure they were cops? Like, did they look legit? <WillfulAction> Yup. Yellow tape and all <Eleven> Did they look like they were taking her? Like, under arrest? <WillfulAction> I didn't see any cuffs...but I dunno. it was all too fast <Eleven> You should try to get in the apartment, see if there is anything out of place.
