As soon as Nev and Max get into the car Max hits the nail on the head by saying, “Alyx must have something equally big to hide. I don’t think anyone would just, without skipping a beat, accept as big of a lie as the one she told.” EXACTLY. Nev is just caught up in the romance of the whole thing. He’d like to write a poem.
This next segment is brought to you by Google Image Search. The guys discover that Alyx only has 10 friends on Facebook, which is, of course, a red flag. Even hermits have at least 100 Facebook friends. Also, Alyx is doing an internship at Century Media Records, so Max calls them for a reference. Wouldn’t you know it? They’ve never heard of Alyx. Google Image Search to the rescue. Alyx’s pictures match with a guy named Chris who DOES actually live in Switzerland. Nev is devastated. He says this is the one time he actually wanted this person to be legitimate. Geez, Nev. How do you think that makes all of your past suckers feel? Sunny wanted Jamison to be legitimate. Jasmine wanted Mike to be, too. And what about Scorpio? Had you no hope for him? Anyway, Chris has 500 friends, tagged photos, and comments on those photos. His profile is real. “Alyx” has no tagged photos or comments. Next question! Who is Alyx? Somehow I don’t think Google Image Search can tell us. The guys are out of ideas, so they go back to their hotel to sleep on it.
The next day Nev runs a phone number search through the Yellow Pages online. He has Alyx’s number from Kya.
They find a blog with the tag @beneathskylines, which reminds them of Alyx’s name from Vampire Freaks, Burning Skylines. The blog they’ve found is basically a suicide note, inviting people to call Alyx’s phone number if they want to say goodbye. Okay, so not only do these catfish people have to live in some kind of makeshift shelter, they also have to be (or have been) on the verge of suicide. These are severely at-risk people we’re dealing with here. Wouldn’t you want to be in a relationship with one of them? Well, as luck would have it, this suicide note includes an actual name, which the guys pull up on Facebook, where the profile is not set to private. And guess what. It’s a girl. Named Dani. This is eerily reminiscent of Chelsea, aka Jamison.
You know, this is the first time Nev’s made any effort to find out who the catfish ACTUALLY is. He usually just goes back and tells the (willing) victim that their online love has been lying. Then the big revelation is in person. I wonder why they dug so deep this time. Anyway, Dani – not Alyx – is a woman, but identifies as a man, making him/her transgendered. Well, that shouldn’t be a problem since Kya’s pansexual, right? We’ll see if she’s also pan-honesty.
