  • Charles Halloway looks down at the body for a long while. The freaks of the carnival come out to moan in disbelief.
  • Charles Halloway watches as the images on Mr. Dark's small body slowly begin to disappear.
  • The freaks are freed in a "chorus of release." The freaks stampede. The carnival tents fall, including the great Freak Tent.
  • The Skeleton picks up the remains of Mr. Dark and moves away into the fields.

  • Instead, he turns back to Jim. The body is cold.
