  • [Prue Ramsay gets married. She’s beautiful.]
  • Summer comes.
  • [Prue Ramsay dies in childbirth.]
  • The house becomes more decrepit again. The Lighthouse light still sweeps through.
  • [Andrew Ramsay, along with 20 or 30 other guys, dies when a shell explodes in France. This is presumably during World War I and not while he’s just hanging out in Paris.]
