Synopsis
After the remains of Julia Pastrana are found, Proof relates his past with her to Ginger, describing how he and his brother Mi-Chen-Po grew apart while battling Springheel Jack in 19th century London. Although Proof loved Julia she spurned him. After dying from childbirth complications, Julia and her child were stuffed and turned into display attractions. Proof lays Julia's remains to rest and finally makes peace with his memories of her.
