    At the beginning, we see the arrival of Dr. Richard Schwarzton, earthquake expert and recovering alcoholic, to Lewiston, Maine. He is talking to his AA sponsor, voiced by Stephen King, when we first see him. Continuing from the previous episode, Paul has trapped Antubis in the in-between hospital. Unable to kill him, Paul leaves him there to bleed to death while he and Rolf Pederson conspire to kill Peter Rickman. It is revealed that Dr. Brenda Abelson destroyed the Mona Klingerman anesthesiology report to cover up for Dr. Stegman. It appears that Stegman is going off the deep end trying to find the ones who tagged his car. Meanwhile, Dr. Hook and Dr. Draper develop a romance, with help from Abel and Christa. While Peter and Mary team up to help Antubis, Stegman is initiated into the Keepers of the Kingdom, the hospital's secret society. During the ceremony, he is minorly injured. He is somehow transported to the in-between hospital, apparently by Paul as a joke. After being rejected in his love advances on Massingale, Elmer goes too far in a prank on her and gets "in over his head." With help from Peter, Mrs. Druse discovers the name of the little ghost girl: Mary. Thanks to Elmer, a headless ghost now inhabits the world in between.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Mrs. Druse's hair went from up to down without showing her put it down and no sign of a hair scrunchy - it just went from up to down in two seconds.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Peter: What is it?
      Mary: Antubis. He cures… and kills.
      Peter: I've seen him do both. Is there a way to tell which one he has in mind at any given moment?
      Mary: It depends.
      Peter: On?
      Mary: You.

    • Stegman: I was told a Dr. Fulcher was injured in some heathen initiation ceremony.
      Traff: Oh. I'm sure you'll be fine. Just don't make any sudden movements, and hope that the guy in charge is not barking mad.

    • James: The earthquakes appear to be confined to the hospital premises. Don't seem to affect the surrounding community at all.
      Stegman: Well, that would be good news if we were working in the surrounding communities and not here.
