MarDevil hears and knocks John out. “Marlena” walks out to talk to Johnny. He’s confused why she’s there and why she’s dressed in a devil costume. She says she was just walking by and found the key. She also wore the costume for him and his movie. When Johnny tries to enter the crypt, MarDevil grabs his arm — there’s a rat in there. She locks the door and asks why he’s there. He tells her the Ouija board pointed him in this direction. Johnny asks if he can take a picture of his grandmother in the devil costume. He explains Allie doesn’t believe in the supernatural and he wants to prove the devil was there. He hears a noise coming from inside, as John rattles his chains trying to free himself. “Marlena” brushes it off and tells Johnny she’ll catch up with him later. He leaves.
