While the experts and the government seek scientific explanation to what has happended to the missing people, some others turn to God to ask for forgiveness and miracle, but a man doubts that it was the rapture as written on the Bible. Others, including 's Kevin Garvey, have a breakdown and there are some physical confrontation, particularly caused by the appearance of cult members wearing white.

"We want them to remember something they want to forget," 's says. A man, seemingly quoting a passage from the Bible, says, "For whoever is joined with all the living, there is hope." Another guy, meanwhile, sees it as a test for "what comes now."
