With 'Josh' (possessed by Parker Crane) in pursuit of Renai and the boys, who are hiding in the basement, Dalton volunteers to go into the Further to find the real Josh. Taking his end of the tincan telephone with him, Dalton astral projects into the darkness. Meanwhile the real Josh, trapped in the Further, encounters Parker's victims standing together with sheets over their heads. He begins to remove the sheets, but one of the victims turns out to be Michelle Crane, who leaps at him, eager for the kill. Fortunately, Elise and Carl catch up to Josh, and Elise stops Michelle by hitting her repeatedly with a rocking horse. Back in the real world, 'Josh' has broken through the basement door and is about to kill Renai when he notices Dalton 'sleeping' in a corner. 'Josh' turns on Dalton and is about to strike him with a hammer at the same moment that Elise kills Michelle, causing 'Josh' to collapse on the floor. Back in the Further, Elise orders Josh to return to the real world and to take Carl with him because Carl isn't really dead (she heard his heartbeat when she hugged him). Josh and Carl begin to leave, come across Dalton, and use the string from his telephone to guide them back into the basement. Astral Josh re-enters his body and proves it to Renai by admitting that it was he trying to play her song on the piano. Later, Josh and Dalton voluntarily get the memories of their astral projection abilities erased by Carl. In the final scene, Specs and Tucker arrive at a house where Elise has told them a young girl named Allison (Dannay Rodriguez) needs their help. The family's younger daughter notices Elise standing behind Specs and Tucker, but no one else can see her. Elise enters the house and approaches Allison, who is seated unresponsively in a wheelchair. Elise hears some creaking above her, looks up, and her face twists in terror. 'Oh my God!' she gasps.
