Story Edit

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • When Carolyn goes to confront Nicholas in the drawing room about visiting Adam, the scene starts with the camera on the grandfather clock in the foyer, and doesn't change perspective until Carolyn enters the drawing room. The hands are at 12 and the clock starts to chime the hour as Carolyn comes from upstairs. The clock continues to chime the entire time Carolyn moves down the stairs but only does so 11 times instead of 12.
  • The hallway outside Carolyn's room appears different to that seen previously.
