When it's discovered that Peggy (Rosalyn Landor) is missing, Simon races to the coven meeting to beg for her release, with the Duc, Rex, and Peggy's parents—Richard (Paul Eddington) and Marie (Sarah Lawson) Eaton—soon following. Mocata is pleased to see Simon's return but refuses to release Peggy, intending instead to use her as the "bride" for the sacrifice. In a state of deep hypnosis, Peggy is laid on the altar just as the Duc and party arrive. Marie screams, interrupting the ceremony, and Rex rushes at Mocata but is easily subdued. The Duc offers himself instead of Peggy, but Mocata prefers the soul of an unstained child and refuses the offer. Richard rushes at Mocata but, like Rex before him, is also easily subdued. The ceremony continues with the Duc powerless to use the Susama ritual again. Just as Mocata is about to slit Peggy's neck, Tanith's spirit takes over Marie's body and raises Peggy. She makes Peggy repeat the words of the Susama ritual, at the end of which the chamber bursts into flames. Back at Richard's house, the Duc, Simon, Richard, and Marie are shown getting up off the floor, still inside the magic circle. Richard and Marie rush to Peggy's room while Simon notices that Tanith's body is missing. Suddenly Rex and Tanith, very much alive, come into the house together. The Duc explains: "Time itself has been reversed for us. Tanith's death, Peggy's abduction, the ritual in the cellar...all these things happened. But now, they have not happened. We are all safe again." He explains further that, although Tanith has been restored, the Angel of Death cannot return empty-handed so has instead taken Mocata, the one who invoked him. "Thank God", rays Simon. As Peggy runs into the Duc's arms, he says, "Yes, Simon. He is the one we must thank."
