She pretends that she is interested in buying the house. Vivian shows her around and Nora becomes very upset when she sees that some of the house has been changed. Then, suddenly, she has gone. Meanwhile, the detective has found Ben's patient and she had Ben's tape recorder on her. Violet is not happy about moving home yet again.
Hayden shows up at the house and is killed by Larry who insists that he did it for Ben. He wants $1,000 in return. Ben builds a gazebo over where he buried her body. Vivian is unaware of all of this and sleeps upstairs with Nora watching over her.....

Another good episode of this new horror series. It reminds me of The Amityville Horror sometimes. There are so many twists and turns, but it is interesting....
