Synopsis for "Lot 13, Chapter Four"
After being killed by the executioner, Ron wanders the hallways of the hotel calling out for his family until he hears Ginnie calling him. She tries to seduce him, but when he mentions the judge, she becomes possessed by a need to help him, and drags him into her room. In there, he finds many of the ghosts he had seen before, waiting to welcome him. They no longer have any reason to be hostile toward him, since he has died too.
The ghosts explain that he is stuck there, because "evil stays where evil dies". As further testament to this concept, the turntable in Ginnie's room will never cease playing its song, over and over, even after Ron kicks the thing over. Recalling the words that his son Austin had said, Ron asks to speak with the ghost of Robert Wyatt in private. He explains that because time does not work the same way for them, and all that occurs is chaos, they should be able to change the past, and affect the present.
Meanwhile, the ghosts take Judy and the kids to jail cells, knowing that their fear will build their power. However, the judge decides that Donna should be kept separate, and she is dragged away screaming from her mother and siblings, while they can do nothing but watch.
In 1921, the men raping Ginnie in their car are interrupted by Ron and Robert, who warn them to leave her alone. When one of the rapists resist, Robert slices off his hand with a scythe. Seeing this, the other man runs, and his bleeding companion is close behind. Calmly, Ron approaches Ginnie, comforts her, and invites her away with them to safety.
Meanwhile, Ginnie's ghost realizes with wonder that the music has stopped. Dancing around the room happily, she suddenly disappears.
In 1670, Tim Wyatt sits on his porch and is startled into running from his spot when he sees a group of cloaked horsemen, ordered by some great dark spirit approaching. Meanwhille, Robert and Ron are on their way in the rapists' car. Knowing that this time's Robert and his family will soon be killed, Ron prepares to rush in, but Robert's ghost warns him against it. There is some element of the murder that he has never been able to explain fully. The delay makes them too late, and as the shotgun blast hits his former self in the head, Robert's ghost's head is blown apart as well. Peering in the window, Ron realizes that the Wyatt family's murder was part of an evil cult's ritual. Their death sealed the curse that made the land go bad.
Ron watches as young Tim Wyatt rushes in, intending his vengeance, but is soon shot through the head as well. The cult's leader orders that the bodies be collected and the house burned. Once the family's souls are condemned, their curse will be in place forever. Annoyed at his impotence, Ron decides to take a different tack, ramming the escaping horsemen with the car and shooting the survivors dead. Turning around, Ron sees the Wyatt family's ghosts warning that he can't win against the cult. Ron responds that maybe they can't win - but they can keep fighting.
Meanwhile, Judy and the kids soon realize that the ghosts keeping them captive have all disappeared, and they escape their cage in hopes of finding Donna. They find her, but they are too late. Donna's body has been defiled and mutilated, and Ginnie has returned, warning that they have to stop Ron - he's making things worse.
