Episode Summary

Part Five
Ms Raven asks Minty to show her the gardens and Minty reluctantly does. Minty tries to move Ms Raven away from the direction of the moondial but Ms Raven heads straight for it. Minty tries to distract her by whistling but this fails. Ms Raven asks Minty if she feels anything as she stands near the moondial. To Minty's relief, Ms Raven then sees the church and heads off towards it leaving a slightly happier Minty. Minty gets up at dawn the next day and goes to the moondial. She touches the dial, closes her eyes and it begins to spin. Next she is seen by Tom, who quickly asks her to come with him. They both see Sarah, she is walking on her own singing quietly in daylight. She gets to the fountain whilst talking to a flower. Tom calls out to her and we get to see her face as she turns around. We see she is a lovely young girl with a birthmark down one side of her face. Sarah instantly runs off but is pursued by Tom and Minty. They all enter the house at which point Tom and Minty realise they are invisibly to everyone except Sarah. Sarah talks to them and asks who they are. They tell that they are her friends. The Governess arrives and sternly takes a frightened Sarah upstairs into a room. We discover that the Governess looks identical to Ms Raven (Servalen again), she is a 37 year old spinster named Ms Augusta Vole who is paid a salary to take care of Sarah. Ms Vole begins to systematically terrify Sarah saying that if she looked in a mirror then the glass would crack and the Devil would come for her. Ms Vole then takes all the sheets off the walls in the room revealing large mirrors. Sarah is terrified, and hides herself under the a bed cover. Eventually it becomes too much for Tom and he runs down the stairs closely followed by Minty. Ms Vole senses something and shouts out "who is there?" Minty eventually catches up with Tom who begins coughing again, now he begins to produce blood and he fades away before her eyes. Minty calls for him to come back but leaves the house and into the garden. There she stands in front of a small statue in the garden and sees a similarity with Ms Raven and Ms Vole. Suddenly she is bewitched by voices saying "the Devil will get you" and a frightened Minty runs back to the moondial hoping to escape.moreless
