I've been watching you
And everything you do
How you impress your friends
I should be one of them
I should be your friend
I see you checking in
so I'll be steppin' out
I want to see your face
I hope it's not too late
I'm starting to shake
Bad news,
I've got my eyes on you
Bad news,
I've got my eyes on you
Eyes, eyes, on you
Eyes, eyes, on you
I know what turns you on
It's like I'm reading
your mind
I know just what to say
I know you will be mine
It's just a matter of time
I know you will be mine
Starting tonight
Bad news,
I've got my eyes on you
Bad news,
I've got my eyes on you
Eyes, eyes, on you
Eyes, eyes, on you

- Hey Tabs.
- [Tabitha] G,
how was your flight?
I can't believe the Land Shark
let you tap off on your own
this time.
- I know, right?
But hey,
at least he's finally giving me
the chance to show him
I can do more
than just file papers.
He gave me the Jerome area
to scout
and compile potential
properties for our investors.
If all goes well,
you're looking at the new
Jerome Project Manager.
- [Tabitha] Dang, from
assistant to manager?
My girl's moving up in
the world.
- Oh yeah.
- Jerome, though?
Isn't that like a ghost town?
I couldn't do ghosts.
- That's just a term
for the population.
It's not actually haunted.
And besides, you know I
don't believe in that stuff.
- I wonder if the house you're
in right now is haunted.
- Ha ha, you're hilarious.
This house is not haunted
and it was actually
a smoking deal.
It's so much bigger than
the photos on the website,
and it was dirt cheap.
- Wow.
The universe really was on
your side for this trip.
Well, show me around.
Let me see the new home
away from home.
- All right, here's the kitchen.
- [Tabitha] What's that door
over there?
- Let's find out.
Ooh, we got lots of food.
- [Tabitha] How about that one?
(knob jiggling)
Where they keep the liquor.
I wouldn't wanna stay there if
I couldn't get to the liquor.
What about the rest of
the place?
- Can we do that tomorrow?
I've had a long day,
and I'm starving.
- [Tabitha] Darn, all right.
Well, congratulations on
the opportunities, babe.
You're gonna crush it
this weekend.
And I wanna hear about every
second of it,
so keep me in the loop,
all right?
- Thank you, and of
course you know I will.
(haunting music)
- What was that?
- What was what?
- That book shelf behind
you just opened.
- Good one, Tabs.
Nice try.
- [Tabitha] I'm not kidding.
I know I saw something.
That book shelf just opened.
- You know I don't believe
in ghosts
and I'm not gonna let you ruin
my stay.
See, nothing is open.
Anyways, I gotta go.
I have an early morning meeting.
- [Tabitha] Meeting?
- Yeah, with an agent that
Landstone wants me to work with,
uh, Mr. Bannister.
- [Tabitha] Ooh, Bannister.
I like the sound of that name.
I bet he's cute.
- Tabs, it's a business meeting.
Calm yourself.
- [Tabitha] I'm just playing.
I'll let you go now,
but before I do,
would you rather wake up stuck
in a cage or a laboratory?
- Tabs, you're a mess.
Not another riddle.
I really gotta go.
- [Tabitha] Come on,
just answer.
- Well, the cage, I guess.
That's better than someone
doing experiments on me.
- [Tabitha] Not me.
I'd rather wake up in the
laboratory as the doctor.
- Oh, you outsmarted me there.
I gotta go.
- [Tabitha] Goodnight.

This is Gabrielle Reynolds
with Landstone Properties.
Oh, hi Mr. Bannister.
Sure, Owen it is, and
you can call me Gabbi.
The Palace Restaurant
and Saloon in Prescott.
Sure, I can meet you there
at noon.
Yep, sounds great.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Thanks for calling.
Okay, bye.

(upbeat music)
(lively music)
- Welcome to the Palace
Restaurant and Saloon.
How can I help?
- Thanks, I'm supposed to be
meeting an Owen Bannister.
Is he seated already?
- He's not here yet.
- Well, in the meantime,
could you point me to
the nearest restroom?
- Absolutely, it's just
around the corner to the left.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome, enjoy.
Nobody's gonna take what sure
is mine
- Oh my gosh.
I am so sorry, ma'am.
I, I was in a hurry and...
no excuse, my fault.
I'm sorry.
- It's my fault.
I should have been
watching where I was going.
If you could just point
me to the lady's room.
- Yeah, it's uh,
right behind you.
- Oh, thank you.
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
I sacrifice, I pay the price
Nobody's gonna take what
was mine
- Hi, we have a table ready
for you.
It's right over here.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- Oh, it's you.
Again, I sorry for being so
clumsy before.
- Don't worry about it.
It was my fault anyways.
Let's just pretend
it didn't happen
and we can start all over again.
- Well, in that case,
it is a pleasure to
meet you, Ms. Reynolds.
- I already told you,
you can call me Gabbi.
- Yes ma'am.
- Stop with that ma'am stuff.
You're making me feel old.
So, how do you know
Mr. Landstone?
- Oh, you mean Mr. Land Grab.
- That's a good one.
You know,
my friend calls him Land Shark.
- Ooh.
- [Gabbi] So how do
you know him?
- Through an old family
- Ah, well,
don't go tell him about that
Land Shark thing, will you?
- Mm, mm.
(both chuckling)
- I'm really looking forward
to seeing these properties
that you found.
- I think you're really gonna
like 'em.
- I hope so.
You know,
I've never been here before,
so I'm excited about the new
- Hi, are you all ready
to order?
- This is me.
(lively rock music)
- Wow, cactuses are so much
taller than I ever thought.
- Now that right there
is a Saguaro cactus.
Now those are truly
magnificent plants,
and some of these are
actually as old
as the town of Prescott itself.
Also uh, it's cacti.
- Cacti.
- Right this way,
Gabbi, mm.
So uh,
where are you staying while
you're in this fine state?
- I'm staying over in Jerome.
- Is that right?
- [Gabbi] Yeah.
- Well that's a big mistake
right there.
That whole town is haunted.
Don't you know?
- Why does everyone keep
saying that?
- Well, because it is.
Has anything strange
happened to you just yet?
- No.
I mean, nothing unusual.
- That's good to hear.
I mean, I've lived around
these parts for a long time
and I have heard a lot of
strange stories about Jerome.
You're not staying at the
Conner Hotel, are you?
- No, why?
- Well--
- What's wrong with
the Conner Hotel?
- Legend has it, about
a hundred years ago,
a Mrs. Anna Hopkins found
out that her husband
was cheating on her
with the school teacher.
Now nobody remembers her name,
but Ms. Hopkins confronted
the school teacher
in the Conner Hotel cafe and
threw acid right in her face.
- What?
- Nobody knows what happened
to the school teacher,
but word is, to this day,
she haunts that place seeking
And that's why it's
called the Spirit Room.
- Oh my God,
that's a terrible story.
- Yeah, I know.
- That poor woman.
Well, thankfully I'm staying
at the big nice house
right outside of town in
Holy Avenue.
- Oh, the Hannah House.
- Oh, don't tell me you know
a story.
- Actually, no, no,
it's pretty nice.
I mean, it's one of the
more historical estates.
- Hm, okay.
- Yeah.
Now let me show you how
we can develop this land
for Landstone Properties.
(dramatic music)
The sunsets here are just
I mean, that is the real
selling point.
- I bet.
So why would we be getting
such a good deal on this?
If there's a fire sale, there
must be a fire somewhere.
- Well, I see now why
old Land Grab hired you.
Very sharp.
Truth is, the owner owes
a lot in back taxes,
so they'll lose the property
if they don't have it
under contract in a week.
- I think old Land Grab
will like this one.
- Mm-hm.
- Owen, I know we're
supposed to tour
another property this afternoon,
but I just can't go on.
Can we start again in
the morning?
- Sure, I can take you back
right now,
but I'm booked up all
tomorrow morning
and I won't have enough time
to show you the other
two in the afternoon.
If you're willing to say one
more night,
I could show you the last
one on Friday morning.
- I'm sure I can change my
- Great.
And I,
I'm sorry I didn't warn you to
wear more comfortable shoes.
- It's not your fault.
I should have known better.
- Here.
- Yeah.
- I'll help.
- Thanks.
- Now are you sure I can't
interest you
in meeting up with me later
tonight for dinner or drinks?
- It's a really nice offer,
but I'm just gonna have to play
it by ear.
You know, work trip and all.
- Mm sure.
Yeah, of course.
Well just let me know and
if not, I'll see you Friday.
- Yes.
And thank you for today.
I had a really nice time.
- You are very welcome.
And don't forget,
comfortable shoes on Friday.
(lock whirring)
(lock whirring)
(tense music)
- Where'd you--?
Interesting management to
come in while it's rented.
(haunting music)
"Welcome to Hannah House."
"We're so pleased you
decided to book with us."
"We hope you have an enjoyable
and refreshing stay."
(haunting music)
(ominous music)
What the?
(tense music)
(phone ringing)
Mr. Landstone, hello.
- How's it going, Reynolds?
- Okay, so far the
properties have been great-
- Bannister treating you okay?
How the properties look?
- Mr. Bannister's been
very nice.
The property has potential.
- Go through the town yet, huh?
Get a feel for the whole
ghost town thing? (chuckles)
- [Gabbi] Well, I did drive
through on my way here,
but I didn't really uh, stop.
- Whoa, drive through?
No, no, no, no.
Listen, I, I gotta be able
to market this place, Gabbi.
I need the juicy details, okay?
This town is historic.
It's a freaking ghost town.
Come on. (fingers snapping)
Unique selling points.
- That'll work out perfect then.
Because of scheduling,
Owen's having me stay
another day
so that he can show me
the property on Friday,
so I can go to Jerome tomorrow.
- Extra night?
Yeah, yeah,
but get me some good content
for selling points, okay?
Creepy ghost stories,
unique shops, something.
- Well, trust me,
there's plenty of creepy
stories to go around,
but you know, ghost's don't-
- [Mr. Landstone] Beautiful,
compile that in a document,
give me all the unique
selling points,
the specs, prospective
properties, all of that.
I want you to compile that in
an email.
Send it to me prior to
getting on that flight home.
Can you handle that?
- I can handle that.
- [Mr. Landstone] Perfect.
I don't need to remind you
this is a hard deadline,
Gabbi, okay?
I'm meeting with investors
on Saturday night.
- All right,
well I'll talk to you soon.
- [Mr. Landstone] All
right, talk to you later.
Keep me in the loop.
Find me some good ghost stories.
- Mm-hm, okay.
(phone beeping)
(lively music)
- You're not closing, are you?
- I am, I am.
What's a pretty girl
like you doing in Jerome?
Are you looking for anything
- Well, actually, if you had
any spooky stories for my boss,
that'd be great.
- Stories?
Oh, I have plenty.
Take that theater across
the street.
- What happened?
- So there was a couple
that got into a big fight,
probably cheating.
She came into the theater
to decompress with a movie,
but little did she know her
husband came in after her
and sat behind her.
When there was a loud scene in
the movie,
he strangled her, to death.
Ever since then, her ghost
has haunted that theater.
- Thank you?
(light tense music)
(floor creaking)
Anybody there?
(dog barking)
(tense music)
- Gabbi Reynolds, do
you know why I'm here?
- Who are you?
How do you know me?
- I'm Desiree.
I'm a seer and I have a message
for you.
I'm here to warn you.
- Warn me about what?
How do you know me?
- Judy sent me.
She has a message for you.
"I want you to leave and never
come back."
- Who's Judy?
- She wants you to leave
and never come back.
- No, I don't understand.
Who's Judy?
- "Leave, never come back!"
(tires screeching)
(horn honking)
(intense music)
(Gabbi panting)
(lock whirring)
(phone ringing)
- Hey.
- Hey G, what's up?
Are you all right?
- Long interesting day.
- [Tabitha] So what
happened today or yesterday?
You still haven't updated me
on how things went with
Mr. Bannister.
- Well, yesterday was good.
Owen's a character,
but we had a nice time.
And then old Land Grab made
me go into Jerome today
to indulge in the culture.
- Land Grab?
- Oh, that's Owen's nickname
for him.
- [Tabitha] Ooh,
I like his humor.
Was he cute?
- Tabs, he's a work partner.
- [Tabitha] Doesn't mean
you can't have
a little work trip fling.
- Tabs.
- [Tabitha] All right,
all right.
Well how's Jerome?
You learned anything creepy?
- Well, something strange
happened to me today
and it was really weird.
- Go on, I'm listening.
- So I walk into this place
called the Spirit Room.
(crickets chirping)
- [Tabitha] And then
she was gone?
- Gone, like disappeared.
I honestly don't even know if
she was real
or I just imagined her.
- Well what?
- Well say something.
- That's really crazy.
Are you sure you just didn't
imagine it?
Sorry, it was your suggestion.
Okay, let's assume it was real.
Do you even know anyone
named Judy?
- Uh, no.
- I honestly don't know what to
tell you
other than I told you so.
Jerome is a creepy place
that attracts weirdos.
Are you really that worried
about it?
- I don't know.
I just wish I hadn't gone
in there.
- G, you've been climbing
stairs for like five minutes.
How big is that house?
- What do you mean?
I'm upstairs now.
- Are you sure you're all right?
- Yeah, I'm fine.
I just gotta get to bed soon
'cause I'm meeting Owen in
the morning.
I'll talk to you later.

- You need to leave!
(Gabbi gasps)
- That sounds like
an intense dream.
- It just felt so real.
But I think it was because
of that experience I had
with that crazy lady in Jerome.
- Ugh, I'm sorry.
You know,
Jerome's known for its spirits
and spiritual people,
but sometimes you just got
a sick person
who wants to scare the tourists.
- But how would she know
my name?
- Maybe you just imagined
it in the moment.
No, forget I said that.
That was silly.
You know what'll clear
your head?
Those properties I was gonna
show you.
Come on.
This property is actually 20
acres and on the opposite side,
premium view lake front
- And?
- And what?
- And why is it for sale?
- Oh, well the owner slept
with his wife's sister,
so he's trying to sell it
before she could get half of it,
and of course I'm sure he
is gonna hide the money.
- Men.
Why can't you just keep it in
your pants?
- Are you asking me?
- No, but,
I mean, honestly,
it sounds like the kind
of deal Stoner loves.
- Stoner?
- Oh God.
Did I just say that out loud?
I meant Land Stoner,
even Land Grab.
You won't tell him, will you?
- Don't worry, your
secret is safe with me.
Come on.
Now this
is my personal favorite.
- This is beautiful.
- So um,
tell me more about yourself.
How long have you been working
for Stoner?
- Well, I started working
with Mitch four years ago
as his assistant project
The goal is to one day be
a developer,
but until then,
I'm just hoping to be upgraded
to project manager,
which is would I be for this
given everything goes well.
And how about you?
What got you into real estate?
- Well, money's not bad,
but I too want to work in
the development industry.
Even as a kid, I enjoyed
assembling projects and I'd,
I'd even design little towns
on paper.
- Me too.
(uplifting music)
Let's see, if I were
a developer,
I'd put a property there.
Oh, and, and there.
- Oh, I, I just,
I, I think you have a really
good vision, ma'am, uh Gabbi.
I think, I think you'd
be really good at this.
So do you think Stoner's
gonna go for these properties
for sure?
- I don't know.
I hope so.
- I don't know.
I think it might be fun to
spend a bit more time with you.
I mean, you just got here
and you're already
leaving tomorrow
and I always thought
this place was special.
It's a good place to
settle down.
Oh my god,
did I just say that out loud?
That, mm.
- Sure did, cowboy.
I should probably go.
- Yeah, here.
- Thanks.
Okay, so seven o'clock?
Where are we meeting again?
- Uh, it's right over there.
It's called The Local.
Best breakfast anywhere,
Are you sure you're fine
staying in your house tonight?
You know, after the scare?
- Yeah, I'll be fine.
The house is safe.
I'm only scared of real things
like stalkers and serial
I don't have to worry about
any of that here, right?
- No, ma'am.
- Okay.
All right then, I'll see ya.

- Gabbi!
(Gabbi screams)
Are you all right?
- What the hell are
you doing here?
- I got worried.
You know,
I, I had a bad feeling
and you weren't picking up
my calls.
- So you just come here
in the middle of the night
to scare the shit out of me?
- Uh, are you all right?
I, I heard you screaming.
- Yeah, I was screaming
'cause I heard you.
I mean, (stuttering)
did you follow me here?
Did (stuttering) did
you know where I live?
- No, no, no, no, no.
You told me the other day
you were staying at
the Hannah House.
You know, this is the only one.
- Still, you shouldn't
have come over unannounced.
- I called and you didn't pick
up, so I got worried and...
I'm sorry, did you um, did you
wanna put something else on?
- Why?
Are you,
are you planning on staying?
- Uh, I don't know.
Maybe I should.
I mean, you know, until
you've calmed down.
- Thanks, but I don't
think that's necessary.
I'm plenty calm right now.
- I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to scare you.
It's the last thing
I wanted to do.
I just,
I know we just met,
but I really care about
your wellbeing
and I wanted to check in and
make sure you're all right.
I was worried, you know.
I, I was worried you didn't
want to come back to Arizona
if you got scared because I
really like getting to know you,
'cause you know,
I kind of like you.
- Owen, that's very nice,
and I'm flattered
that you like me,
but I, I don't think we'd be
a good fit.
- What do you mean?
- [Gabbi] It's not you.
It's me.
- Wait, um, what do you mean?
Like, wait, do you think
something's wrong with you?
- No.
No, there's nothing wrong with
me, I just,
I, I, I don't want you to get
too invested
because I like women.
- You like,
- Yeah.
- You're a...
- Yes, yes.
- Okay, yeah, got it.
You know, I should get going.
- You should, yeah.
- I, I'm up past my bed time.
- Let's
- Um, are you,
are, are, are you,
are you sure you're um?
- Okay?
- Yeah.
- Yes.
- Okay, yeah.
- Yes, I'm, I'm fine.
I'll see you in the morning for
the best breakfast anywhere.
(phone ringing)
- Hey G.
Ooh, you look good.
What happened?
- I had an unexpected visitor.
- Was it a ghost?
- No, it wasn't a ghost.
It was Owen.
- [Tabitha] He came to see
you at this time of night?
- Well, he came to check on me
'cause he was worried about
me and...
- Is he still there?
- No, no, he just left.
But while he was here,
he made it pretty clear
that he liked me,
like a lot.
- Really?
Tell me more.
Is he good looking?
What happened today?
- Well, yeah,
he's very good looking and,
and he's very nice and
I don't know.
We had a lot of fun at
the lake today
and he's so easy to talk to
and we have so much in common,
but, but I freaked and, and
he was being way too forward
and you know me.
- Oh no, G, what did you do?
- I um, I told him I like girls.
You know, it was all
happening so fast and,
and when he told me he
liked me, I felt trapped,
and so I just...
- So let me get this straight.
No pun intended.
He told you he liked you so
you told him you're a lesbian?
- Yeah.
It does sound kind of crazy
when you say it out loud.
- [Tabitha] G,
you always do this
when you actually find
a good guy.
- Well, I didn't wanna hurt
his feelings.
- G, you need to sort out
your commitment issues
because flat lying to him
makes no sense at all.
Does it ever cross your mind
to say something reasonable,
like, well,
"Thanks for your interest."
"I don't know how I feel now,"
"but let's see where things go
from here."
- Mm, you make it sound so easy.
- [Tabitha] Because it is easy.
- Well, not for me.
I mean, I,
I never know the right
things to say
and then I I always go mindless
robot mode
and just make up some
story to get out of it.
- Listen up, babes.
You need to cut the crap.
You are worthy of love
despite what you may think,
just like you are worthy
of this promotion.
This may be the big
breakthrough moment
you've been saying you needed.
And as they say,
identifying the problem
is 90% of the solution,
and that's what you just did.
- Don't they also say the
last 10 percent's the hardest?
- Maybe, but at least you're
almost there.
Are you seeing him again?
- Mm-hm, yeah, tomorrow.
- [Tabitha] Then y'all get
a chance to go the last 10%.
Fix this and tell him the truth.
- But how?
I don't think I've ever done
that with anyone in my life.
- [Tabitha] I know you, G,
and I know you can do this
and get the promotion.
You've come so far building
up your confidence.
You just need to start acting
like it.
- Thanks for the pep talk.
- You know I'm always here
for you.
- Anyways, all this has
suddenly got me exhausted,
so I should probably get to bed.
Plus I have a report
to write in the morning
on top of all this.
- [Tabitha] All right.
Just remember you got this,
G, and I believe in you.
- Goodnight.
- [Tabitha] Goodnight.

blames me for the loss.
I don't think he loves me
but I desperately want
to reconnect with him.
(dramatic music)
(tense music)
He left me all alone.
I didn't know where to turn.
I didn't mean to hurt
Angus, I really didn't.
I never wanted him to find out.
(dramatic music)

(dramatic music)
- Judy?
Judy, where are ya?
I've got something to tell ya.
- Not now.
- [Angus] Judy.
- I can't let you in right now.
- [Angus] Judy, open this door!
Get back here,
you yellow bellied coward!
(tense music)
- [Judy] He told me he'd kill
me if I ever saw him again.
And then he told me he'd kill me
if I ever left the house again.
I feel so trapped and all alone.
(tense music)
(ominous music)
- No.
- No!
Let me go!

That's too easy.

I, I waited at The Local for

I'm not stalking you.
I just got worried when
you didn't show up.

By the power of my ancestors,
and the great spirits
in the town of Jerome,
I pronounce a curse on
this house.
(house grumbling)
Give it power to do justice.
(doll cracking)
(doll cracking)

And replace all women

May it wipe away the stain of
and bring forth justice.

(Gabbi gasps)
- You want me to know
all of this, don't you?
I can't do this.
To hell, I can't.
(house grumbling)
(house roaring)
(tense music)
- [Gabbi] Owen!
- I knew something strange was
going on.
Look, the door's open and
her car isn't even here.
- That might not mean anything.
She could have left in a hurry.
- Well, I'm not gonna
wait around to find out.
- Okay, first off,
(door slamming)
you need to calm down
and stop running around like
a jackrabbit, Bannister.
You hear me?
Sure everything's gonna be fine.
(lock whirring)
- Gabbi?
Gabbi, I'm coming for ya!
- Hey, hey!
What are you doing?
Get back here!
- [Owen] Gabbi?
Where are you?
Are you in here?
(tense music)
- Slow down, Bannister.
Bannister, where'd you go?
- I'm in here.
I found her phone but no sign
of Gabbi.
I'm getting worried.
- [Jessica] Worried?
Why's that?
Any signs of foul play?
- You mean like all this blood
on the bed?
- Don't touch anything.
Good move, Bannister.
You've contaminated my
crime scene
and now you're gonna be
the prime suspect
if anything's happened to her.
- That's just it.
We need to find her before
anything does happen to her.
- Calm down.
Think for a minute.
Maybe she cut herself and went
to an urgent care in a hurry.
That would explain the door
being open.
(window banging)
(door closing)
There it is again.
Let's check that out.
- Owen?
Help, please!
(intense music)
(Owen screams)
- Oh.
- Settle down, big fella.
Nothin' to see here.
- Help me, please!
I'm in here!
(knob jiggling)
(tense music)
(intense music)
(door closing)
(tense music)
No, no, no, don't go, don't.
Don't go, please!
No, don't leave me!
(knob jiggling)
(door banging)
- Huh?
That's weird.
I could have sworn that
was coming from upstairs.
- Yeah, me too.
Let's check this out first
and then we can go back up
and take a look around.
- Hm.
(Jessica wailing)
Hey, let me help you.
- I don't need your help.
- Well clearly.
Come on.
(both grunting)
Oh, God.
God, no, no, no.
(door slamming)
(air poofing)
- Bannister, I think you
might be overreacting.
Bringing me out here
because your breakfast
date didn't show up?
- No, no, no.
She was so spooked last night
and then she never showed up to
so I came here and
she wasn't here
and I called her like a dozen
times and she never picked up.
- Didn't you only meet this
girl a couple days ago?
You did say she was supposed
to fly out today, right?
- Yes, but listen, her
flight isn't until tonight.
I haven't seen her in like
24 hours.
I mean, we should at least
try to get in the house
and make sure she's in there.
You know,
to see if she's all right.
This is the place she
said she was scared of.
- We can't go in
without the owner's
permission or a warrant.
Besides, look around, Bannister.
You said when you came over
this morning,
her car was here and I don't
see any car.
She was probably running late
to meet you
and now you're not where you
were supposed to meet her.
I think you might be
overreacting over nothing.
- I mean she never picked up
the phone.
- You've never had your
phone battery die before.
Come on, let's go.
- I don't know.
Still got a bad feeling
about it.
- Welcome to Jerome.
Everybody gets that feeling,
but there's always a
reasonable explanation.
Bannister, what's that?
(tense music)
- I have no idea.
- Well now you look suspicious.
Bannister, I'm gonna need you
to come down to the station
for some questioning.
(tense music)
(somber music)
- Owen.
No, Owen!
(tense music)
(intense music)
(tense music)
(mysterious music)
- "To Angus from Judy."
"Angus, remember Hannah's
"We have lost our baby,"
"but we still have each other."
"In the future we will
"Never forget the power
in our family name"
"and the specialness of
our motto."
"Per ardua ad alta."
"Through adversity to
the heights."
"Happy anniversary."
"Love, Judy."
(dramatic music)
(phone ringing)
(phone ringing)
- [Owen] Hello, this is Owen.
- Owen, Owen, it's me, Gabbi.
I'm in the house.
- [Owen] Hello?
Who is this?
- It's me, it's Gabbi.
- [Owen] Gabbi, is this you?
- Owen, yes, yes, yes.
It's me, it's me.
- Sorry, but whoever this
is, I can't hear you.
If you can hear me, I'm
gonna hang up and then-
- Oh no, no, don't.
Owen, no, no, no, don't hang up!

- [Mr. Landstone] Reynolds?
Yeah, I don't know what
happened to you,
but you missed the deadline.
I don't know if you got caught
up in the atmosphere there
or what, but I needed that file
and now I'm gonna have
to go into a meeting
with six investors who
were depending on you.
I'm sorry, Gabbi, but I'm
gonna have to fire you.

(ring jingling)
I hope for your sake she's
in here.
(eerie music)
(Gabbi gasps)
(eerie music)
(ominous music)
- You're?
- I am you.
(glass cracking)
- I don't understand.
- So, what's the plan?
- Look for a way to access
the house.
See what we can find inside.
- Could we go in through
an open window?
- Easy enough, if there was one.
- Oh, what about that?
- Right, great.
You wait by the front door,
I'll go in through one of
those windows
and come and let you in.
- No, no, no, not happening.
I'm going up there with you.
- You're gonna do what I
tell you to do, Bannister.
You got that?
(glass shattering)
- I'm here to help you, Gabbi.
The house demands a payment.
Angus demands a payment in
order for you to to leave.
- I don't believe you.
- Someone has to pay the price.
- What are you?
- I'm you.
And I'm here to save you.
- What do you mean, "Save me?"
- If you throw that doll in
the fire,
it'll only seal the curse
in this house eternally.
That doll is the life of Angus
and it'll only anger him.
- Okay, suppose you do want to
help me.
What should I do now?
(intense music)
- Gabbi?
Gabbi, are you in there?
- If you want to leave,
then we must hurry.
- [Owen] We're coming!
- It's now or never.
- Okay.
- Angus placed a curse on
this house
and he sealed it with his blood,
and the only way to break
the curse is with our blood.
This is what's required.
- So what do I need to do?
- Repeat after me.
And when we're done,
we use a knife to cut our hands
and drip some of our
blood into the furnace
and then the curse will be
broken and then you can leave.
(tense music)
(ominous music)
- Tell me what to do.
- Repeat after me.
In the name of Angus Hannah.
- In the name of Angus Hannah.
- We give our life blood
to break this curse.
- We give our life blood
to break this curse.
(tense music)
- Are you in yet?
- I'm going in.
I'll be right down.
(intense music)
(Gabbi gasps)
(intense music)
- That's it.
The price is paid and the curse
is broken.
You can go now.
- That's all?
This house has already
taken more blood from me
than I can imagine.
- I know, because it's
taken it from me as well.

Where are you?
(Gabbi screaming)
Oh my God.
- What was that?
It looked just like you.
- It doesn't matter,
it's dead now.
We have to get out of here.
- Then let's go.
- [Jessica] Bannister,
well the hell are you?
I need your help.
- Who's that?
- That's Jessica Cooper.
- Who?
- Oh, Sheriff Cooper,
the county sheriff.
I asked her to come help me
find you
and I was on my way to help
her, but then heard you scream.
- Well you better go help
her then.
(tense music)
- Are you Gabbi?
- Yes, let me help you.
- [Jessica] Where's Owen?
- Come on.
- I thought he was with you.
- You okay?
- I think so.
- Can you walk on that?
Okay, well then get up
and let's get out of here.
(tense music)
- Dispatch, D2100 checking in.
Do you read?
(radio buzzing)
(tense music)
Wait a minute.
- Gabbi?
(tense music)
I thought you said, no, I
thought you said she was dead.
- I thought she was dead.
- I'm the real Gabbi.
Don't listen to a word
that things says.
- Owen, I'm the real Gabbi.
We need to stop her before
we can get out of here.
- All right, can, can
we all just calm down?
I mean, no one needs
to get hurt here, okay?
- She's lying.
She's not me.
- Hey!
I don't know what the hell's
going on with you two,
but if you just give me
my gun back,
we can all go down to the
station and figure this out.
- One step closer and I'll
shoot you.
- Give me my gun back.
(intense music)

- Okay.
(dramatic music)
(knob jiggling)
- [Replicant] Hold on.
