Sergeant McCallum (John Larch) puts a tap on David's phone line in hopes of tracing Evelyn's whereabouts the next time she call to request he play "Misty." Worried for Tobie, David is somewhat relieved when McCallum says he'll drive out to her house and check on her. When McCallum leaves, David calls Tobie, who says she's fine. She's just about to do her nails, and her new roommate Annabel is in the kitchen making coffee grogs. As David hangs up, Annabel comes into the living room carrying two coffee mugs, and the viewer can immediately see that Annabel is really Evelyn. Evelyn comments on a portrait of David, leading Tobie to ask if she's a friend of David? Suddenly, she notices the scars on Evelyn's wrist and realizes who she is, just as Evelyn picks up a knife and advances toward Tobie. Meanwhile, David remembers a line of poetry that Evelyn quoted him—"this maiden she lived with no other thought than to love and be loved by you" realizes that it comes from Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee", and figures out that Tobie's roommate Annabel must be Evelyn. He immediately phones Tobie. Evelyn answers and says, "We're waiting for you, David." David puts on a five-hour tape and hurries to Tobie's house where he finds Sergeant McCallum dead, having been stabbed in the chest by a pair of scissors, and Tobie lying on a bed, bound and gagged. Suddenly, Evelyn leaps out of the shadows and begins stabbing David. A fight breaks out, and David manages to wallop Evelyn a good one that sends her careening out on the porch where she falls over the railing to her death on the rocks below. In the final scene, David releases Tobie's binds while "Misty" can be heard playing on the radio with a special dedication to Evelyn, whose body lies on the beach. The camera then pans up the Carmel coast.
