Catherine rushes to the Old House, where a heartbroken Bramwell tells her that Daphne has died.
+
Bramwell tells Catherine that Daphne has died, and of her last request. Kendrick and Melanie are married. Julia is concerned that Morgan will become violent now that Bramwell is free to pursue Catherine; she asks Bramwell to leave, he refuses. Brutus Collins appears to Melanie; she becomes insane. Brutus warns that the lottery must be held again.
 
'''Act I'''
 
 
Bramwell explains that Daphne died peacefully and without pain. Catherine wishes she could take her place, but Bramwell insists she must not feel that way. Bramwell tells her of Daphne’s final request (for them to be together), however Catherine is not in the mood. She excuses herself to see Daphne one last time.
 
 
Melanie and Kendrick return to Collinwood and tell Julia they have been married, which only upsets her. The happy couple tells Julia she shouldn’t be surprised, but Julia tells them that Daphne’s condition has greatly deteriorated. Julia eventually congratulates the two, and Kendrick announces they will be living at Collinwood for the time being. Catherine then returns, and announces to everyone that Daphne is dead.
 
 
'''Act II'''
 
 
Later, in the drawing room, Julia expresses her concerns of how Morgan will handle the news of Daphne’s death, now that Bramwell is free to pursue Catherine again. Catherine assures them that Morgan will do nothing to Bramwell, and leaves to find him. Julia then departs Collinwood.
 
 
Kendrick and Melanie arrive at their bedroom. He kisses her deeply, but Melanie admits she’s not in the best of moods in the wake of Daphne’s death. Kendrick understands, but she’s worried she will never find happiness as long as the curse is alive at Collinwood.
 
 
Meanwhile, Bramwell is sitting in the parlor at the Old House when there is a knock on the door. Depressed, he refuses to answer, but Julia lets herself in and offers condolences on behalf of the family. Bramwell doesn’t care and asks to be left alone, but Julia also mentions it might be a good idea for him to leave Collinwood.
 
 
'''Act III'''
 
 
Bramwell is deeply upset and offended by Julia’s request, but she implies that Morgan may try to do something rash and is concerned about the future of the family. He adamantly refuses to leave, and admits he is staying because of Catherine.
 
 
Back at Collinwood, Catherine tearfully tells Julia that Morgan was deeply upset upon learning of Daphne’s death, but his anger was more directed toward Bramwell. Catherine says Morgan has agreed not to do anything for now, but she is deeply concerned. Kendrick arrives, having put Melanie to bed. He informs Julia that he is now planning to take Melanie out of Collinwood as soon as he can.
 
 
As Melanie sleeps upstairs, the windows suddenly open and a blast of wind flows through the room. Brutus’ laughter can then be heard, and he appears to Melanie.
 
 
'''Act IV'''
 
 
Referring to her as Amanda, Brutus tells Melanie she will now carry out his revenge on the family. She begs him to leave her alone, but he begins to approach her.
 
 
In the drawing room, Julia asks Kendrick to reconsider, but he insists he will do what is best for Melanie. Julia shakes her head in disbelief as he heads back upstairs.
 
 
When Kendrick returns to the bedroom, he finds the room empty and screams out for Melanie. Julia joins him in the hallway, and Melanie appears behind them. Now possessed by Amanda and in her “mad” state, she attempts to kill Kendrick, but he easily overpowers her and takes her to the tower room.
 
 
A short time later, Julia and Kendrick return to the drawing room, where the ghost of Brutus appears. He warns them that Melanie will not be sane again until the lottery is held and a Collins enters the locked room.
