We open episode 4 back at the kitchen table after a long night of haunts and noises. Marty, after his tearing face off hallucination and being bit by some invisible monster has decided he will never be coming back to the Freelings' house. Ryan is going to stay and Dr. Lesh assures Diane she will be coming back. In the meantime, Steven's boss has decided to pay a visit to see why his star salesman still isn't back to work. They take a short drive to phase 5 of the development and we get a new piece of the puzzle -- the developer plans to move a cemetery off the premises. When Steven questions the action, his boss informs him they had to do it before, right in Steven's neighborhood.
When we return to the home, it's dusk and a new visitor has arrived to the Freeling home -- Tangina. She has cleaned many houses before and has agreed to help them get their daughter back. They hatch a plan to send one of them through the portal in the closet of Robbie and Carol Anne's room while Ryan and Dr. Lesh await downstairs at the exit of the spiritual world. While Tangina channels her psychic abilities to help all of the lost spirits crossover to the light, Steven freaks out that Carol Anne might follow and he begins to pull on the rope Diane was wearing when she entered the portal. Tangina screams for him to stop, but it's too late. The beast thrusts his head into the room, roaring at Steven, who drops the rope.
With the beast distracted and the rope out of his hands, suddenly Diane and Carol Anne come falling through the exit, landing on mattress setup to catch them. They are covered in some kind of chunky pink slime and are not breathing. Tangina orders them to be placed in a tub of water to reawaken them to our own world.
