Caroline drugs Violet and loads Ben into her car, but the locked gate prevents her from leaving, so she hides Ben in the garden shed, takes a rowboat across the swamp, and hitches a ride to Luke's house. As she is explaining to Luke that Violet tried to kill her, Luke receives a phone call from Violet. When he takes the phone into an adjoining room, Caroline snoops around his desk, noticing his law books for beginners, several photos of herself, the three-snake ring from the attic, and a skeleton key missing the piece that she pulled out of the hoodoo room keyhole. Suddenly, Luke sneaks up behind her and slips a cord around her neck as though to strangle her. When Caroline comes to, she finds that Luke has brought her back to Violet's house. Violet forces Caroline to tell her where she hid Ben. When Violet goes out to the garden shed to bring Ben back, Caroline breaks free from Luke and runs into her bedroom where Luke can't follow because of the line of brick dust she had previously put in front of the door. Caroline climbs out the window, but she's confronted by Violet. Caroline runs back into the house and starts spreading brick dust in front of all the doors. Unfortunately, Violet climbs through a window, and Caroline is forced to toss her down the stairs, breaking her legs. As Violet pulls herself up the stairs, Caroline races to the attic where she sees a circle of burning candles in the hoodoo room. She quickly draws a protective circle around herself, copying a circle of protection spell that she stole from Violet. Caroline points out that Violet cannot enter her circle of protection, but Violet laughs and tells her that the only thing the circle stops is her...from getting out. Luke joins Violet, and they put the mirrors into position and turn on Papa Justify's Sacrifice record. "We've been waiting for you to believe," Violet says. "The spell only works if you believe." In the mirror, Caroline can see the ghosts of Grace Thorpe, Violet Devereaux, and Mama Cecile. "I don't believe!" Caroline starts screaming. Suddenly, the mirror crashes into Caroline, knocking her to the floor. When she comes to, the first thing she does is to take a cigarette from Violet's bag and light it. Luke puts his arms around her, and Justify and Cecile admire their new bodies. "It gets harder every time," Caroline/Cecile says. "They just don't believe the way they used to." In the final scenes, the paramedics carry off Ben and Violet, and Luke/Justify explains to Caroline's roommate Jill that Violet really liked Caroline because she willed the house to her.
