Episode Summary

In this episode’s closing illusion, “Clearly Impossible”, Stephen gets Holly to lay down on a low table. Stagehands then cover her with a pair of clear-sided boxes, from which her head and feet project. Stephen then places small wooden stocks over her neck and ankles, while Holly extends her right arm through an opening in the side of the box over her top half. With Holly firmly secured within the clear-sided box, within which she is still fully visible, Stephen takes a large steel blade and places it into a slot in the middle of the box. Pressing down on the handle, he pushes it through the box until the edge appears below the table, dividing it (and Holly) in two. Taking another identical blade, Stephen completes Holly’s division. With both blades in place, Stephen releases the catches holding the two halves of the table together. Stagehands then pull the two table halves apart. As Stephen walks between Holly’s halves, she wraps the fingers of her right hand around the edge of the upper part of the box, feeling where her lower half should be. The stagehands then push the box halves back together, Stephen locks them back together and removes the blades and stocks. The stagehands remove the boxes covering Holly, and Stephen helps her to sit up and climb down off the table to take their bow.
