    The only other explanation I could think up was that he was reciting
part of a poem about Josie. I remember him doing this in at least one scene
after her death. However, this doesn't explain his waving goodbye to a
wall.


    I suppose that the scene was to alert alert viewers to the fact that
Pete's one of the "gifted/damned." Also, perhaps to emphasize the nature of the
shaking hands epidemic as supernatural.
