Continuity mistake: After Dean discovers Joanna on the couch, her face covered in calamine lotion, he picks her up and carries her into the bedroom. As he sets her on the bed the viewer can see her face is free from any "spots" and/or lotion.

Annie: Something's familiar.
Dean Proffitt: Yeah, well... that's 'cause we used to do it in the closet.

Question: When Grant comes to find Annie/Joanna, how does he know exactly where to go to find her? He ends up at Dean's house without knowing where he lives.

Answer: This is just speculation, but since he knew what hospital she'd been in, he likely went there and asked who'd claimed her and where they lived. It wouldn't be too difficult.
