Tess, Carey and May Harkness race to get Ben Naismith away from his uncle to prevent him from becoming the new host body for Century. In hiding, Esme Harkness gathers the other elders of the village, hoping that their combined psychic force can discover the true identity of Julia, Naismith’s maid, who seems to be behind the plot to revive Century. But Julia repels their attempt, and in so doing reveals something even more terrifying: somehow, Julia is the sum total of the psychic elders of Century Falls. They march on the Naismith estate to demand answers and an end to the horrifying experiment to come, only to be confronted by Josiah Naismith himself, dead and yet still walking. By playing on May Harkness’ old emotional wounds, Julia has stage-managed the handover of Ben Naismith so the experiment can continue. And it has already been decided that Mrs. Hunter’s baby will become Century’s new host body.
