Following Grams funeral, an explosive, hurtful encounter with Leslie occurs. Knowing he will have no peace until he returns, Justin leaves a note early one morning and drives to Plimoth Plantation. Later, after walking the streets of the present day town of Plymouth, boarding the Mayflower II, and hiking up Burial Hill, Justin ponders, Was it a mistake to return here? Will I ever be free to move on with my life? Have I lost Leslie over my obsession with a ghost? Standing at the Howland family memorial, Justin lovingly fingers each engraved letter etched in stone: E l i z a b e t h. With tears and a penetrating sadness, he at last experiences release and wants nothing more than to return home to Vermont, his family and Leslie. His departure is prevented as a sudden storm hits the town. Justin runs for shelter and a room at the Carver Inn. As the storm rages out side, Justin is soon lost in a book he purchased at Plimoth Plantation of the war in 1675 between the colonists and the Native Americans. The power goes out and Justin heads outside. Ignoring the desk clerks warning, he yells back, Dont worry, Im not going far. I just want to get a first hand look at whats happening out there. I wont be long. Justin makes his way back up the now muddy path to Burial Hill. Over the howling wind, he imagines hearing his name called out. Looking up, Justin perceives a vision: a lone figure at the top of the hill. A dense fog begins to roll in.
