Later, you’re called to Beacon Mental Hospital where multiple people have been killed, and end up inside an experimental machine called STEM that allows multiple people to connect with one person’s mind, which, it turns out, isn’t a cakewalk, particularly if that one person is a serial killer. You eventually escape and, years later, have to go back into STEM because it turns out your wife was right and your daughter has been alive the entire time.
