Can The Librarians solve the mystery of a haunted house that kidnaps and kills people before it vanishes again?

ACT ONE

Title card: Slovakia, Nitra Region

In A Forest

[A house in the forest] [voices and screams from within the house]
WOman's Voice:
Katie! No! Oh, my God!

[A young girl (Katie) covered in blood runs from the house and in front of a car containing the Librarians]
Jacob:
All right, there, Miss. All right. Um, whoa.
Katie:
Please, he's gonna kill them!
Eve:
She's covered in blood. Is someone chasing you? Is someone out there?
Katie:
It's that house. There's something horrible in that house!
Eve:
Deep breaths. Deep breaths. Slow. Just... just tell us what happened. What's your name?
Katie:
B-Bender. My name's Kate Bender... Katie. My... my friends, we were we were hiking, you know? And... and... w-we found this house in the woods, about a mile that way. Oh, God!
Eve:
Just breathe. Take a deep breath, Katie. Good! Good. Katie, someone was in the house?
Katie:
He... he... he was he was in there, and... and he has my friends! He has Mathias and Sarah and James!
Jacob:
All right, all right, now, who is "he"?
Katie:
I don't... I don't... a man. I never got a good look, but I have to go back. I have to save them!
Jacob:
Look at me. Look at me. Look at me. All right? Take a drink of this. Just calm down. Take a sip. There you go. Now, we're not gonna let you go back in that house by yourself. Right?
Ezekiel:
All right, bloody girl in the forest, a killer in the house. Who says we go back to Prague? I left a lovely bird back in that nightclub.
Eve:
This is me ignoring you. Get used to it. [magic locating device beeps] Is that a good beeping or a bad beeping?
Cassandra:
Means we found the broken ley lines we were looking for. [Has a vision of the ley lines map] Multidimensional maps don't look at them unless you can do the math to sort out the magic layers... And you like headaches and nosebleeds.
Eve:
Are you all right?
Cassandra:
Mm-hmm.
Eve:
Is it the tumor?
Cassandra:
It's always the tumor. I'm fine. The vertices used to be static, and now they're... Now they're... Wavy. They're moving, and when they stop... ! can see them.
Ezekiel:
Math girl's doing one of her loopy-loops.
Cassandra:
Don't. Don't call me "math girl." Mr. Jenkins said we needed to find the broken ley lines, and I say they are... that way.
Eve:
Ah, where the... blood-covered girl came from. Anybody here like that coincidence?

[Phone call to the Annex]
Jenkins:
I hate that coincidence. Broken ley lines are never good, and with the return of magic, they're even more dangerous. If you don't anchor them, they could build up enough charge and explode all over Slovakia.
Eve:
Cassandra says these lines are stable for now. They're all sort of converged about a mile northeast, which is roughly where this house is supposed to be.
Jenkins:
The house and the broken lines are in the same place?
Eve:
We're about to find out.
Jenkins:
And you say there was violence... in this house. Anyone killed?
Eve:
Unknown. Possible. Likely.
Jenkins:
Broken ley lines means wild magic. We may now be looking at a haunting, Colonel... a very new, very powerful haunting. Angry spirits mixed with wild magic from the ley lines... not good.

Act Two

House In The Forest

[Outside]
Cassandra:
These are magic anchor scrolls from Zou Yan. Activate one at each of the cardinal directions... north, south, east, west. It should anchor the energies, stop them from building.
Eve:
Stone, you and I take point, look for Katie's friends. Jones, you activate the anchor scrolls. With any luck, we can kill both these birds at once.
Cassandra:
Hey!
Eve:
Cassandra, you stay with her.
Cassandra:
There are four lines to anchor. I can help.
Ezekiel:
I vote she does all of them. I'll stay here.
Eve:
We just don't know what's up there, and you're not...
Cassandra:
What? I'm not what?
Eve:
Look, you did your part with the maps. Cassandra, she's half in shock. She can't be left alone.
Cassandra:
Okay, but we need to talk about my part when this is... [Eve, Jacob and Ezekiel leave Cassandra with Katie]

[At the house]
Eve:
What's with the face?
Ezekiel:
More than nervous, less than terror.
Eve:
Still ignoring you. I meant Stone.
Jacob:
This is a 19th-century American frontier house. The hell's it doing in the middle of a Slovakian forest?
Eve:
Seriously?
Jacob:
I'm just saying, it doesn't belong here.
Eve:
All right.
[Inside the house]
Eve:
We clear a room, you set the anchor.
Ezekiel:
South anchor set.
Eve:
Clear.
Jacob:
It's clear.
[Ezekiel sets the second anchor]
[Banging noises from upstairs. Ezekiel sets a third anchor]
Ezekiel:
North anchor's set.
[The house starts to shake. A knife throws itself at Ezekiel]
Eve:
Out! Out! Everybody out!

Outside The House

[Eve, Ezekiel and Jacob run from the house and back to the car]
Katie:
Who are you people?
Cassandra:
Librarians. We're The Librarians.
Katie:
What kind of librarian carries a gun?
Eve:
Uh, we do f-field, um... Like library research... st-stuff. It gets... it gets dangerous.
Katie:
You're very weird librarians.
Eve:
It's a very weird library.
[Jacob and Ezekiel return from setting the final anchor]
Jacob:
All right, it's done. The last anchor. Are we good?
Cassandra:
We're good.
Eve:
All right. We're on. Katie, we're going back in for your friends.
Katie:
Finally. All we have to do is just...
Eve:
No. We're going. You're staying here with Cassandra.
Katie:
What? You can't just leave me here... they're my friends!
Jacob:
Listen, it's fine. There's three of us. I think we can take one psycho. Well, two-and-a-half with Jones, but still...
Ezekiel:
I'm standing right here where I can hear you.
Cassandra:
Why am I being sidelined?
Eve:
Cassandra, no one's being sidelined. Right now I'm allocating resources as needed, and I need you to look after Katie, who is currently... Running back up there!
Damn it, Katie, stop! [Librarians and Eve chase Katie back to the house]

Act Three

Inside The House

Katie:
Mathias? Sarah? It's me! James!
[Footsteps upstairs]
Eve:
We know you're up there! We know you can hear us! This can go one of two ways! You come down, we get these people help, nobody gets hurt! Or... We come up! [no reaction from upstairs] Fine. It's the hard way.
[to Cassandra and Katie] You two, you stay down here. Cassandra, I mean it. Jones. [Takes Jacob and Ezekiel upstairs with her]
Katie:
So... All you do is read maps?

[Upstairs]
Jacob:
Wait, wait. These dimensions are wrong. Does this hall extend past the house?
Ezekiel:
Oh, no.
Eve:
Shh!
Ezekiel:
This is a sign, mate."Keep off the bloody grass."
Eve:
He's up here somewhere. We clear these rooms by... the... numbers.
Ezekiel:
All right. This is exactly the point in the movie where the guy in the audience says, "get the hell out."
Jacob:
Shh! Go. Check out the first room...
Ezekiel:
Don't be stupid.
Jacob:
I got the second one.
Eve:
Far corner's mine.
Jacob:
[Enters a room and finds a piano] It's an Umberto classic... 1869. Nice,
Ezekiel:
Why does nobody listen to the guy in the movies? Movie guy is always right. [Enters a room with a crib and shoes lined up against a wall. There's a photo of the house on the wall] That is not creepy at all.
Eve:
[Enters a room with the same photo of the house on the wall] Is that this house?
Jacob:
Crate hammer. [Finds a hammer and the photo of the house in his room]
Ezekiel:
Movie guy's wrong. Movie guy's wrong. Movie guy's wrong [checks inside a closet]
Jacob:
Baird, where are you?!
Eve:
[Finds blood covered clothing and sees Katie's friends being attacked by a hammer weilding shadow, but when she looks again there's only Jacob there] Stone!
Jacob:
Whoa! Whoa! Come on, man.

[Downstairs]
Jacob:
I didn't hear anything... And I didn't see any kids. And they sure as hell didn't get past me and Jones. Why would they?
Eve:
I'm just saying what I saw... white girl, about 18 years old...
Katie:
That's Sarah.
Eve:
...and two boys... one black, one white.
Katie:
That's James and Mathias! You saw them?
Eve:
I don't know what I saw!
Katie:
Oh, my God! That's their clothes! They're... they're dead, aren't they?! They're all dead!
Eve:
I-I-I said I don't know. I don't know.
Katie:
You said that it was gonna be okay! You said that you'd get them out of this house! [Runs from the house]
Eve:
Katie! Katie, wait!
Cassandra:
So, I'm the Katie-wrangler now? Fine! [Goes to find Katie]
Jacob:
All right. This is just the ley lines going nuts, right?
Ezekiel:
I thought the point of the scrolls was to shut these things down.
Eve:
I don't know. But I bet there's someone who does. [Phones Jenkins] Jenkins, quick question. Could anchoring ley lines in a haunted house jump-start the ghosts?
Jenkins:
You know, Colonel, you have an incredible talent for turning a bad situation into a worst-case scenario.
Eve:
Jenkins!
Jenkins:
Yes, fine. Good news is that you've successfully secured the broken ley lines so there will be no magical cataclysm. Huzzah!
Eve:
The house, Jenkins. What about the house?
Jenkins:
Um, yes. The house. Well, uh... The bad news. Have you ever heard the story of the house on the haunted hill, where a group of paranormal researchers died in madness and terror? Or the one where the psychotic killed, uh, a whole sorority one Halloween?
Eve:
Yeah. Those are just stories, urban legends.
Jenkins:
Yeah, different stories... Same house. And you're standing in it.
[Upstairs in the house, the shadow man with the hammer appears]
Jenkins:
Ugh. Now, according to the Heisserer Index, there are six mystery houses. Yes, the Urdobe... the Dionaea House, the Shatterbox, the Final Rest, the House of Refuge. Then there is the Soul Cage. I think you've stumbled into either the box or just possibly the cage. You know, there's some argument about the methodology of how...
Eve:
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Jenkins!
Jenkins:
Right, so, all reports of the, um, the House of Refuge describe it as... as benign, even... even helpful. The Final Rest was destroyed in 1350... You're in the Shatterbox. Salute! You're the first Librarians to step foot in the place. It has a tendency to move around.
Eve:
What do you mean, it moves around?
Jenkins:
It appears somewhere, it takes victims, and then moves on. I mean, men, women, boys, girls, families. Ironically, no sororities yet. Um, but then it feeds and moves on.
Eve:
Moves on to where?
Jenkins:
Uh, the next dining location, I take it. I mean, we've known it's been doing this for at least a century. Uh, the first confirmed sighting was, uh, 1883, when a woman named Abigail Munson...
Eve:
I don't need the whole real-estate ad from hell. Just tell me how to get Katie's friends out of here.
Jenkins:
Well, you don't. I mean, once the house takes victims, that's it. But you might be able to stop it... stop it from moving on and taking more victims. Just find the dark heart of the house and destroy it.
Eve:
Where is this "dark heart"? What does it look like?
Jenkins:
Could be anything. A-an expensive vase, a rug, a-a mouse. You'll know it when you see it. But... you only have till midnight.
Eve:
Got it. Got it. [Hangs up the phone] Okay. So, there's no monster in the house, the house is the monster, and we have until midnight to find its dark heart and destroy it before it goes off in search of more victims.
Ezekiel:
Why is it always midnight? Who makes these rules?
Eve:
I don't know. Have either of you seen anything out of the ordinary?
Jacob:
I saw a metal crate hammer from, like, the 1800s, caked in blood.
Ezekiel:
Or how about the pram from "Rosemary's baby"? No, seriously. It's up there.
Eve:
Never mind. Just... just go. Carefully.
Cassandra:
I think you're gonna want to hear this.

Act Four

Inside The House

[Downstairs]
Katie:
Nobody was here. We thought it was abandoned. We thought we'd just spend the night and then move on in the morning. Then he came. It was horrible. He's like a shadow. And he has this thing, like a... like a hammer or a hatchet...
Eve:
Wait, what do you mean, "like a shadow"?
Katie:
Like... Like smoke. Like he's made out of smoke.
Eve:
Why didn't you tell us this before?
Katie:
You would have thought I was crazy. I mean, things like that don't just happen... Do they.
Cassandra:
They actually happen more than you think.

[Upstairs]
Jacob:
Damn it. Where the hell did it go? It was jus... How'd you get over there? [sees the hammer across the room, when he goes to pick it up it vanishes] Jones, I got some weird stuff happening in here, man! How about you? [bright flash of light from the corridor] Jones? Hey, you okay? Jones! Jones? [the room Ezekiel was in is now empty, apart from a dollhouse] Jones!

[Downstairs]
Jacob:
Jones is gone.
Eve:
Define "gone."
Jacob:
Well, I mean, he ain't upstairs, and he ain't down here. I thought he might try to run, but the truck's still here.
Katie:
It's him. It's the bad man, I just know it. He's got him, just like before.
Cassandra:
We don't know that.
Jacob:
What's the play, Baird?
Eve:
Give me a second.
Jacob:
'Cause I'm thinking fire, huh? We burn the joint down, I bet it don't move around much.
Katie:
My friends are still in here somewhere! And so is yours! We can't just burn it down!
Eve:
Stop talking! Everybody, stop! It's a combat scenario, all right? Let me think. It's a hostile theater, hidden enemy, stealth attacks. There's a pattern. There's always a...
[Gramophone starts to play]
♪ What are little girls made of? ♪
Eve:
Creepy... old... phonograph?
Katie:
Wait, that wasn't even there!
Jacob:
Nope, not there before, all right?
Eve:
I'm so sick... of this house. [Tries to stop the gramophone playing and gets thrown across the room]
Jacob:
Baird! Baird!
[The word 'Katie' appears on the wall written in fire]
Katie:
Me? It got the others, and now it wants me?
Eve:
Not on my watch. Cassandra... You and Katie, get out of this house. Take the car, go back to Jenkins at The Annex.
Cassandra:
No, I'm not leaving. I want to help find Ezekiel. We're a team.
Eve:
We are not a team. You are the Librarians. I am the Guardian. And right now, I'm telling you to get yourself and Katie out of this damn house.
Cassandra:
Well, you're not sending Stone away.
Eve:
I need him. He can fight. Cassandra... We all have different skills. In this situation, your skills don't apply. If we don't find Jones, well, at least one of us needs to make it back to Jenkins. Now go.

Outside At The Car

Katie:
Wait! Cassandra, wait! Cassandra! What's wrong? Are you okay?
Cassandra:
Just get in. Look, I'm taking you to The Annex, as ordered.
Katie:
What's The Annex?
Cassandra:
You want something out of the way, that's where you put it.
Katie:
I don't understand. Isn't Miss Baird just trying to protect us?
Cassandra:
You, yes. Math Girl, not so much.
Katie:
Who's Math Girl?
Cassandra:
That would be me... The one who could break at any second, the one who betrays her friends.
Katie:
You would never betray anybody.
Cassandra:
Except I did... once. I have a tumor... in my brain. It makes me... useful but unreliable. I wouldn't trust me yet, either.
Katie:
That Miss Baird is pretty hard, I guess. But she's trusting you to get me out of here and to keep me safe. Do you think that she would have let one of those other men do it? Which one? The one that wants to burn the house down, or the one that ran away? Miss Baird trusts you. So do I.
Cassandra:
Thanks, Katie. Thanks.
Katie:
So, you're math girl?
Cassandra:
Yep, I'm math girl. And today, math girl... is getting us out.
[The shadow man appears and attacks the car]
Cassandra:
Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
Katie:
No! No!
Cassandra:
Go! Go! Run! Go! Run!

Inside The House

[In the room Ezekiel vanished from. Jacob walks up behind Eve, she pulls her gun on him]
Eve:
Again?
Jacob:
You kidding me?
Eve:
Really? Where are all the shoes?
Jacob:
What shoes?
Eve:
Jones said this room was full of shoes.
Jacob:
I got nothing.
Eve:
Why is it playing these games? Why did it attack Katie and her friends? Why hide-and-seek with us?
Jacob:
You wish you had something to shoot, don't you?
Eve:
God, I want something to shoot!
[They hear Cassandra and Katie run screaming into the house. Eve goes to investigate. Jacob sees something in the upstiars room and goes for a closer look, he approaches the dollhouse, there's a flash of light...]

[Downstairs]
Eve:
What are you doing? I told you to go!
Cassandra:
There was a hiccup.
Katie:
He's coming! He's coming!
Cassandra:
Just help us block the door!
Eve:
What hiccup?! Who's coming?!
[Something attacks the front door]
Katie:
Aah! It's him! It's the smoke man!
Eve:
Stone! Stone, get down here!
[The shadowman starts to break through the door]
Cassandra:
I think we found the dark heart.

Act Five

Inside The House

[Inside the dollhouse]
[Ezekiel is playing video games]
Ezekiel:
Yeah. It takes a second to process.
Jacob:
Is this the doll... we're in the Dollhouse?
Ezekiel:
See? Got it in one.
Jacob:
How are we... in the Dollhouse?
Ezekiel:
This is just a guess, mind you, but I'm going to say... magic.
[Outside the dollhouse]
Eve:
Stone! Stone? Damn it!
[Inside the dollhouse]
Jacob:
It's Baird. Baird! Baird, we're in here! Baird!
Ezekiel:
I tried that before. She can't hear you. Samosa?
Jacob:
No, I don't want a samosa! What's wrong with you?
Ezekiel:
Well, I had sliders before, but for gaming, you really want something a bit more bite-sized.
[Outside the dollhouse]
Eve:
What the hell do you want?! [The words 'Katie' appear several times on the walls written in blood]
[Inside the dollhouse]
Jacob:
This house is trying to kill us.
Ezekiel:
Pretty sure it's not. Mm. Actually, you'll love this. Watch. I wish I had a pint. Oh, uh, left hand. [A pint of beer appears in his left hand] Now, tell me that's not bloody fantastic!
Jacob:
What have you been doing, huh? Dude, the whole time, you've been playing video games and drinking?
Ezekiel:
And samosas. Yeah. I got tired of staring at those damned pictures. I said, "I wish there was something better to do," and boom Xbox one...
Jacob:
What pictures? What do you mean, "pictures"? What pictures? [Ezekiel indicates some pictures on the wall, Jacob examines them] This is a page from the Book of Bright Stars. This is Abdurrahman Sufi. He made this. I mean, t-t-t-t-this has been lost since 960 A.D.
Ezekiel:
I'll take your word for it. You suss out the story yet?
Jacob:
This house is in every picture. I mean, these are... this is art from the Crusades. I mean, the house cha... it changes to fit the period.
Ezekiel:
See, the way I reckon, this place is wicked-old, right? So, at the beginning, it's just happy families, years of that... and then... something.
Jacob:
We got this wrong. We got the whole thing wrong.

Downstairs

[The shadow man breaks into the house]
Eve:
Get out of here! Go! I told you to go!
Cassandra:
Go! Go! Come on!
[Cassandra and Katie run from the house]

Act Six

Outside the house

Katie:
Come on! Come on, we have to go! We have to run! She said to run!
Cassandra:
No. No.
Katie:
What?
Cassandra:
You go. I need to help my friends. The house wants you. If you get out... then all of this wasn't for nothing.
Katie:
No, we can both go! I mean, the car's right there! We can make it to Texarkana by the morning! There's a fort there, and and there's soldiers! Come on!
Cassandra:
Katie, the car is wrecked... Wait, Texarkana? We're in Slovakia.
Katie:
Slovakia? What? N-no, Jesse, this is Nevada. Wait. Where's the desert? Buggies. That's what we need, because the horses...
Cassandra:
Who's Jesse?
Katie:
Oh. Oh, no, you're right. You're Cassie... Cassandra. Jesse was Scotland... And so dead.
Cassandra:
Katie... wh-what's wrong? You're freaking me out.
Katie:
Me? Oh, nothing. N... I-I'm j... I'm just trying to get it all straight again, you know? I-it's funny. I can never remember where the begging goes. Does the crying come first?
Cassandra:
No... Oh, my God... This... This is all you, isn't it?
Katie:
♪ Ashes, ashes, they all fall down ♪ Now's the bit where you're running.
Cassandra:
[running back to the house] Colonel Baird! Colonel Baird!
Katie:
[Slowly follows Cassandra while singing to herself] ♪ ... driving six white horses when she comes. She'll be driving six white horses when she comes. She'll be driving six white horses. She'll be driving six white horses. She'll be driving six white horses. When she comes ♪

Inside The House

Cassandra:
Colonel Baird?! Eve? [finds Eve's gun dropped on the floor. Sees Eve being dragged up the stairs and follows]
Katie:
♪... and we'll all come out to see her when she comes ♪
[Upstairs Cassandra finds a room filled with the ghosts of the people who died there]
Katie:
So now you know, Cassandra.
Cassandra:
This has been going on a long time, hasn't it?
Katie:
My family... we killed a lot of people... some for the money... but mostly for the fun. People caught on. We were runnin' real desperate. And then... like magic... Boom! A fine, little house in the middle of nowhere. My family never knew how special it was. Not one of them heard this house whispering. But I did."Do you need help, Katie?" "Why, yes... magic house, I surely do." Wishes. Hey! You listening up there? This is a magic house, and it's mine. It only talks to me.
Cassandra:
So you talk, huh? I sure wish you could talk to me.
[Hissing sound]
Okay. Okay. So, it's not actual speech, but I'll work with what I've got. It's a good beginning. [examines photos on the wall] Happy. You were happy. The people...
Were happy. Then the bad people came. Katie's family. Katie.
Katie:
Are we making friends up there? You think I don't know this house hates me? Think it doesn't try this every time? Tries to warn people? I made a wish, and it has to give me what I asked for... Every time, 'til I'm done. You know what's so funny? I'll never be done! This stupid house, always playing tricks, always laughing. She'll be screaming soon. Then we'll see who's laughing. Hiding, are we? Sorry. It was bothering me. [searches the room for Cassandra] Well, now, I thought you were supposed to be math girl. It's not very smart, giving me only two choices. Hmm. I wonder where math girl is? She's not in the closet. Where could she be?
Cassandra:
[Suddenly appears, tries to fire Eve's gun but it's empty. Instead wrestles Katie for the knife]
Unh! [stabs Katie and tries to run from the room but the shadow man blocks her way]
Katie:
[unharmed by the knife] No. No. No. You're so stupid. Don't you know what I wished for? Don't you know what this house has made me?
Cassandra:
You're the dark heart.
Katie:
I'm death! Turns out they were right, Cassandra. You ain't good for nothin' in the end. [cuts Cassandra with the knife]
Cassandra:
Please please, help me. We can stop this! Please help me stop this!
Katie:
Lord! Why on earth would I want to stop?
Cassandra:
I wasn't talking to you.
Katie:
Mm. Someone's trying to be clever.
Cassandra:
I wish... to save my friends.
Katie:
Well, I wish to kill them! And I was here first.
[Attacks Cassandra, but the house gives Cassandra the hammer Jacob found earlier]
Cassandra:
You think you are death? I was 15... when they told me... that my death sits right here! So I see it... every time I look in the mirror! Every day! Every... single... day!
Katie:
Stop this! You can't! I'm the angel! I'm the Angel of Death!
Cassandra:
You're not the Angel of Death. I know what death looks like, and she doesn't look like you. She looks like me!
[Slashes Katie with the crate hammer]
Katie:
[appears to heal] See? I told you. I always get my wish. [dust starts to pour out of Katie and she disolves]
Cassandra:
This isn't about... wishes, Katie. It's about need. And I really need... [collapses onto the floor. When she wakes up, she's alone and there's a note addressed to her on the dollhouse, it says 'thank you'] Looks like someone's feeling better.

Act Seven

Downstairs in The House

Ezekiel:
I'm just asking, why aren't we considering our options?
Jacob:
What are our options, Jones?!
Ezekiel:
Well, that this house is the Star Trek transporter, or maybe even the TARDIS. Think, mate. We could own the stock markets. You could be dating... whoever it is backwoods country people think is hot, I don't know. This place is a gravy train. Colonel Baird, Eve, if I may, I've never asked for anything in my life. Please, let me have this. It grants wishes, Eve.
Eve:
Know what I wish right now? I wish I had something for this eye!
[Shadow man appears in the doorway with Cassandra]
Cassandra:
The house doesn't grant wishes. It helps people in need. It was built as a refuge. No one ever expected a serial killer to find it. It won't make the same mistake again.
Ezekiel:
So, we can keep it?
Cassandra:
Easy, now, boys. [Shadow man transforms into an elderly butler, who hands Eve a cold pack for her eye] Guys... meet the Spirit of the House of Refuge.
Eve:
Jones, you're outvoted.

Outside The House
Cassandra:
[to the Spirit]
Thanks for fixing the car. Everybody ready?
Jacob:
We're good.
Ezekiel:
Let's just get this over with... bloody idiots.
Cassandra:
[to the Spirit] Okay, you. Be good, okay?
[to Ezekiel] Shove over.
Ezekiel:
What?
Cassandra:
I'm driving.
[As they drive away the house disappears]
Jenkins:
[On the phone] The Bloody Benders. John, Katherine, Jack, and Katie... an entire family of serial killers. They killed at least 12 victims across Kansas and Nebraska in the 1800s before they just... disappeared. Now we know why. They found the house of refuge, and Katie Bender made a wish. Aside from not getting to see a mystery house for myself, all in all, a job very well done.
Cassandra:
Thank you, Mr. Jenkins. We'll see you in 19 hours.
Jenkins:
[hangs up the phone] Tea.
Ezekiel:
Oh, my God. I can actually feel the smugness coming off your body. Music. I need music.
[turns on the stereo] ♪ What are little girls made of? ♪ No! No bloody way! Turn it off.
Cassandra:
No way. I like it.
[In the back of the car, the dollhouse appears]

Fade out...
