Episode Summary

After the car outside blows up, the group is presented a hand and they have to speak through the Spirit Board. Justine reads the invocation and they ask for the spirit to speak to them. The spirit spells out "B-O-O-K-S" through the Ouija board and they go find 8 different books all around the first floor. When they find the books, they also get a code and unlock a message in the hand that leads to a chest with chess pieces and they have to play on a chessboard, in a specific arrangement. Once completed, they have to go to The Ballroom and find the Fire, Water, Earth and Air symbols that associate with numbers necessary for a code.

The code is 2358 and the cabinet is then unlocked. The group finds out that they have to go to The Basement to unleash an Ungodly Machine. Unable to figure out how to decide the people that go down, Arthur suggests a vote, the results being pulled out of a hat. The two voted to go down are Lele and Andrea. Having to choose a partner each, Lele chooses Eva and Andrea chooses Justine. Arthur leads them to the Basement, and they are faced against 3 puzzles, the objective being driving the machine into malfunction.

The first puzzle is to decode a blueprint and place the 4 levers on the machine either up or down in a specific pattern. The second puzzle is trying to unscrew a screw in a tube of iced water. The third and final puzzle is that they have to re-wire the control panel. Justine faces certain difficulty while Eva moves on exceptionally quick. Though, Eva gets stuck on the final puzzle, giving Justine time to catch up. Before she can fully catch up, though, Eva gets the machine to malfunction and as a result, gets Lele out of her capsule; Andrea being asphyxiated by the gas in hers. An artifact comes out and they go back up. After Justine pleads her case and concludes that maybe Andrea should've died anyway, because she wasn't being of much use, the group accuses her of purposefully sabotaging Andrea. Once Lele places the first artifact on the shelf, Oli finds a note that says that one among them is in league with the evil of the house, most naturally being suspicious of Joey.
