A man searches for his friend, but the motel manager denies having seen his friend and offers him to stay for the night in a remote motel. While rinsing his face, the man hears the shower suddenly running. When he pulls the curtains, the shower stops and then it glows red, the man then screams and a blood spatter is shown along with his blood falling down the drain. Sword, Gina, and Sophie pass through a ruined city and arrive to a cliff. While Sword complains about having to sleep in a sleeping bag, Sophie spots the same motel. They arrive at the motel and Sophie gets excited about everything inside the room. Sophie spots a teenage boy and goes outside, she meets and befriends George, the son of the owner Matthew, and he explains their current situation. The group have dinner while Matthew arrive and ask them if they are going to El Dorado because there has been a lot of guests than were going there, this makes the group suspicious about him. Matthew's wife finishes showering and asks him to stop working on the finances, but he becomes angry stating that he did all of this for them and starts beating her, all of this while George is teary saying to stop. After Gina and Sophie finish taking a bath, a liquid-based Horror attacks them, but Gina stops it and forces it to retreat. Later, Matthew's wife discovers that her husband made a pact with the Horror to ensure the family's financial survival. Matthew wishes to return to Russell City and become a success, but instead, the Horror engulfs him and then attacks his wife. She is saved by Sword who, together with Gina, attacks and destroys the Horror. Before moving on, Gina rewrites wife and son's memories to eliminate their experience, believing instead that a tornado caused the destruction and Matthew's death.
