You touch the container.

This egg was yours.

You head back upstairs. You fill Dr. Finch, Michelle, and Fuse in on the new information--that you're only half human.

"That... this changes a lot. I'll need to get back to you." Dr. Finch hangs up.

"Wow..." It takes a little bit for Michelle to take it all in when you tell her. "I guess it makes sense. I mean, if it wasn't a mutation, what else could it've been? I just... didn't jump straight to alien."

When you tell Fuse, he nods. "Yeah, I figured. It was either cosmic being or actually the devil, for real. Skin walls and giant mouths don't leave much room for other options."

Dr. Finch cut off a bit abruptly there. Probably needs a bit to digest that.

Let's go meet mister Grizwald.

Knowing Finch, it's just that he was suddenly inspired to do more SCIENCE! by such a revelation.

Cover the vent up if we're done down there, and see if, strange though it may be, there's anything worth looting at home.
Also, could a more perceptive person than myself please show off our entire inventory thus far? It helps a lot.
If Jane's father was the type, check his bedroom/study desks for pistols, or important papers. Get any medicine that might be in the bathroom cabinets, and look to see if there's anything else worth investigating, like more vents or so on. Also, throw out any food that's expired in the fridge and cabinets. We don't want this beautiful place to end up like Howler's apartment after all.

seconded. Though it's only been... something around what? two months? probably something to eat that hasn't reached its expiration date here. When was the last time Jane and Michelle had something solid in them that wasn't vending machine junk.

.... maybe Jane has some icecream in the freezer.

Just woke up before posting this so I'm hungry. >_>

Well, the Queen-controller knows about the vent (from Michelle). And since Jane's mom's Red down there can take care of itself, it's a bit unnecessary to hide it.
For brevity's sake, can Jane remember her parents' first names explicitely ?

> Michelle: Check if Jane needs a hug, this revelation has to be freaking her out a bit.

> Jane: Take a picture of your Mom. It looks like a lot of this is about her, so having a picture of her might be useful.

Correct me if I'm wrong...

Jane's inventory:
> house key
> Grizwald's thumbstick (password protected)
> first aid kit (missing syringe)
?(assumed) blue cap

[THRALL]Fuse's inventory:
> cellphone
> toolkit (w/ some slightly illegal parts)
> level (one dose left)
> Save the Queen cult poster
> syringe (filled with Jane's blood)
? Michelle's truck ignition key

[THRALL]Michelle's inventory:
> handgun (? bullets loaded)

[THRALL]Dr. Finch's inventory:
> vials of Jane's blood
? vial(s) of Save the Queen

yeah seems about right.

Michelle also apparently has cigarettes, I think (since she shared one with Fuse earlier), and presumably matches or a lighter to light them with.
