Arnold's demeanor begins to change dramatically, spending whole nights playing eerie music at the organ and killing the children's pet raccoon. Ginger brings some friends over to visit but they leave when they see a face coming out of the wall, which proves that she is not crazy. Nevertheless, it's only a small comfort since she's already terrified of being inside her own home. The woman starts sleeping in the nearby forest and is at the breaking point. Six months after moving in, she and her children move out, Arnold vacates the home the next day, never to be heard from again.

On June 19th 1988, during a storm lightning repeatedly struck Summerwind, burning it to the ground Later that week, fire officials reported that the fire was not suspicious and arson was not suspected since neighbors reported being awakened when lightning struck the vacant home.
