We begin with the little girl finishing her sentence about what are they going to throw into the well now? The monster gives a half-smile and a knowing wink and a nod to what he might throw next. The parents are still agonizing over whether or not they checked the bedroom upstairs when it occurs to them she may have been in the bathroom. While they run upstairs, we return to the girl and the monster as she commands him to get on her see-saw. As he sits, he ends up catapulting her into the air and into her bedroom through her open window. As she hits, her parents rush in to find her sound asleep -- or perhaps knocked unconscious from the landing. We end with the image of a lone cabin in the woods and as the camera pushes into the interior, we see a lone, bearded man praying.
